Pokémon GO has now introduced social and trading features that allow Trainers to connect with each other by adding friends, sending Gifts, and participating in a new Friendship level system that unlocks bonuses. Trainers can now trade Pokémon with other Trainers nearby, earning a Candy Bonus for the Pokémon received. Join Trainers across the globe who are discovering Pokémon as they explore the world around them. Pokémon GO is the global gaming sensation that has been downloaded over 800 million times and named "Best Mobile Game" by The Game Developers Choice Awards and "Best App of the Year" by TechCrunch. Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Pikachu, and many other Pokémon have been discovered! Pokémon are out there, and you need to find them. As you walk around a neighborhood, your smartphone will vibrate when there’s a Pokémon nearby. Take aim and throw a Poké Ball… You’ll have to stay alert, or it might get away! Search far and wide for Pokémon and items Certain Pokémon appear near their native environment—look for Water-type Pokémon by lakes and oceans. Visit PokéStops and Gyms—found at interesting places like museums, art installations, historical markers, and monuments—to stock up on Poké Balls and helpful items. Catching, hatching, evolving, and more As you level up, you’ll be able to catch more-powerful Pokémon to complete your Pokédex. You can add to your collection by hatching Pokémon Eggs based on the distances you walk. Help your Pokémon evolve by catching many of the same kind. Choose a Buddy Pokémon to walk with and earn Candy that will help you make your Pokémon stronger. Compete in epic Gym battles You’ll join one of three teams and battle for the ownership of Gyms with your Pokémon at your side. As your Charmander evolves to Charmeleon and then Charizard, you can battle together to defeat a Gym and assign your Pokémon to defend it against all comers. Team up to defeat powerful Raid Bosses A Raid Battle is a cooperative gameplay experience that encourages you to work with up to 20 other Trainers to defeat an extremely powerful Pokémon known as the Raid Boss. If you succeed in defeating it in battle, you’ll have the chance to catch an extra powerful Pokémon of your own! It’s time to get moving—your real-life adventures await!

  • Simple updates for the app would help.

    By eastcoastfilm
    Would be helpful if there would be some kind of notification system to let you know when a pokémon is ready to evolve. Also sorting by its class would be much helpful when trying to complete research tasks instead of clicking on each individual creature to find out it’s class.
  • Great FUN

    By HMHapproved
    Love this game. It gets me out of the house & am able to meet new people. I love how it blurs the line between people. You all have Pokémon in common 🥰
  • Pokémon go rules

    By Foosnobin
    I absolutely love this game, it’s an amazing game for a free game it brings the community together that’s why I like to spend money on it to support something I love. I just have a couple suggestions right now. With updates in the game they’ve taken things like training at gyms out, but there’s still a badge for training gyms that I’ll never complete and it’s just sitting there. Also with gyms that have been taken out, the badges still stay. I think with the next update niantic should go through and get rid of those little annoying things they’ve forgotten about. Also, they really need to change the loading screen it’s not summer anymore its December.

    By Miyu Suzumaki
    I pressed power up on my Scyther and it EVOLVED IT!! I want my candy back, I don’t care if u change it back to a scyther, just give me my candy back! Also I just did a raid and no matter what berry I have it, it wouldn’t let me catch the Pokémon??? And it was only a tier 2 seriously what’s wrong with this game?! Plus the field research claim reward button doesn’t give you any EXP after you finish part of a quest! PLEASE at least give us an opportunity to buy some rare candies so I can fix this mess
  • Worth The Time and Energy

    By VelocoraptorBoi
    You will need Energy and Time to Fully Enjoy the Game! I like all the events and raids, it’s fun for meeting to people to! If you wanna download, it is a Battery Drainer! So Enjoy the game!
  • Very finicky

    By DangleyDong
    I walked 74Km last week. And I did not receive my “rewards” as I have in the past! This game needs to be more consistent if u want to keep my family playing!
  • More Pokémon

    By Sean230
    Love the game can’t wait to get Pokémon let’s go eevee (even though it’s already out) do you plan to add the rest of the Pokémon like poplio and fenneken that would be great.
  • Where did all pokestops go???

    By Kilo-g13
    I live in a big city yet all poke stops are gone? If I want to walk an collect I have to go 15 miles?!!!! You have to be kidding right?? That’s insane! Takes me weeks to get enough poke ball’s to even play! I’ve written to you guys about this an to the guys who handle gps mapping for you! You have yet to respond, fix or add the stops back! I’m really disappointed in this game. It was the one thing that bonded my sons an myself together. Now if we want to play we have to drive which ruins the whole point of this game, does it not? Please fix this issue. I’m not n a small town I live in a very big popular city On the coast of Florida! Lol you even took away all our gyms so those r gone plus our stops smh.
  • Fix your GPS system!!!

    By jsoabaina
    How do u have all these bug fixes and the GPS is still messed up. If anything you guys need to focus on that. Also the mechanics for catching a Pokémon is the dumbest thing ever like really doesn’t make any sense to how trash it is !!
  • Bugs?!

  • Stealing your money

    By KaitM8494
    In the past week I’ve lost about 10 eggs or so. They just completely disappeared along with the incubators that I used to hatch them in... the incubators I PAID for. This game is becoming complete trash with every passing day.

    By 3P1C G4M3R5
    Cool! I really like the new friends feature. The newer Pokémon are fun to look for and so are the older ones! I’m also very grateful for the new ‘Reverse Sort’ option, it’s very useful and I can look for Pokémon in my log easier. Thank you so much!

  • I love this game BUT...

    By I ♥️ Bass 🔊🔊🔊🔊
    Ok this game is SO cool! Although I’m kind of aggravated with Snorlax and other rare Pokémon. You like NEVER see them. Also you need unlimited poke balls for $10.00. Also you should be able to always change your name and what would make me play even more is by trading Pokémon from home. I have friends that I don’t see often and are far away. I think trading Pokémon through gifts would seal the deal on this game. Also make it easier for trainers to get Snorlax please. (Add him in raids). Another idea, in the nearby section, click on the wild Pokémon, and give them directions. I saw a nearby Snorlax and stayed up all night trying to find it. It’s truly upsetting. Those are my opinions, please take this into consideration
  • better way to view stats of pokémon

    By nataliee_sus
    we need a better way to view stats with out herring the lady talk to appraise then i wish there was a visual it would be so much better
  • Crashes and pokéball Plus

    By FlamerFreezeGamer
    Still retains the crashes on your profile screen, even if it is less frequent. Although with the pokéball plus, a new problem arises. You can’t catch anything if you don’t have any pokéballs. Doesn’t matter if you have 500 great balls and ultra balls, only pokéballs work. This needs to be fixed as Pokeballs are the lowest tier, and it limits users.
  • Change the opening theme

    By DaddyLongDikk
    It’s winter,it’s not sunny and beachy.I don’t want to see alolan Pokémon all happy on the beach.Where are the Santa hats and stuff lol
  • pokeball plus

    By mikeanitee
    so i had recently brought the pokeball plus to catch pokémon at work but it wasn’t catching anything because i didn’t had any pokéball but i had a lot of great balls and ultra balls. there should be a feature where i am allow to use my other balls
  • Love this game, but…

    By Business traveler1
    Love this game, but the December community event was very disappointing. I was so excited to see that I had the opportunity to get some Pokémon that I didn’t normally get earlier in the year. Where are my disappointment came in was there were very little opportunities to get shiny’s in Pokemon versions that we did not get in the past. I played a lot, and I do mean a lot during all three event is and got very few Shiny’s. Very disappointing I shouldn’t have wasted all that time and will be reducing the amount that I played in the future.
  • Needs Some Fixes

    By SwankPeRFection
    The version number in the app on the Settings screen has never matched the iOS app version number listed in the App Store. This should match and Apple should have caught that already and pointed it out per developer guidelines. On iPhone XR, on the Field Research screen, the top of the screen is cut off (the binoculars icon to be exact is cut off by the notch). Please fix this. Pokédex and caught Pokémon graphics take forever to load, even on a brand new iPhone XR. Plus they always have to reload when you pull up those screens. Who thought it was a good idea not to allow the app to locally cache the graphics for the Pokémon? This was introduced when you fixed a scrolling/crashing defect on these same screens a very long time ago. This must have been your “fix” for that, but it’s poor coding honestly. This should be fixed as it looks bad and amateurish as is. On iOS 12.0.1, with app Privacy Permission disabled for camera use, if you go to add a friend and scan QR code and then go catch a Pokémon, you get a white/washed out background on the catch screen. There’s no place to turn off AR mode in Settings either. Seems to be a defect in latest app update. During afternoon times on the weekend when raid times are high, login ability via PTC is a f**king joke! Fix your servers and network load issues!!!!!!
  • Gym’s

    By Lewis 8675309
    The gyms can be defeated way to easily now, in just a few hours all of the Pokémon have little to no health and can be beat in just a couple attacks. NEEDS BALANCED!
  • Awesome, but Adventure Sync fails

    By MonthlyPeep
    I’ve tried numerous “solutions” from my own thoughts to reddit posts to articles, but no dice. It’s very annoying, as I don’t want to run the app 24/7 just so I can hatch my 10km eggs. Please find a solution!
  • Shame

    By Kudabe
    Fixing bugs regularly but couldn’t stop thirds party apps
  • Community Day

    By dbebzgsujw
    Before I start I think this game is great 5/5 stars. This review is only about the Nov 30th to Dec 2nd event. I am highly disappointed on how this event ended up to be for me. I understand that the shiny rate was random but what I do not understand is how people were able to find shiny after shiny but I played for almost 9 hours straight and then 3 of those hours were during the higher shiny chance and only caught and saw one shiny and my girlfriend didn’t even see one. I think for future events that each non shiny Pokémon you catch increases your chance even more to encounter a shiny. That way it’s a more better chance then just luck. Out of the whole weekend I only caught three but constantly saw and heard people who caught at least 20-30 and I feel for the time I played I should at least should have seen 10. I was super excited about hearing about the event and thought I could make up for missed events but now I’m just super annoyed and angry on how I could play so much and didn’t really get anything in return. I know that this complaint is going to go unread, I’m just super disappointed on the time I used and didn’t get anything good in return.
  • App crashing

    By AnZhuo Tang
    After the latest update, the app will crash. At first I thought it was just my phone but two other friends have complained about it also. Hope this”bug” is fixed soon.
  • It’s great

    By RareFeather5665
    I love this game but I wish I was able to change the team I’m on. I am really hoping that Niantic will add the ability to switch your team soon. But all in all this game is really fun and great for exercise plus it can be really addictive. So if your bored or trying to find a new game to play I recommend you try this game out.
  • A lot of problems

    By RyanMattell
    Game crashes constantly when you’re in the friend list. Apparently 4 sinnoh stones a month we’re too much? How are we gonna evolve all those Pokémon? Aaaand now every time I try to close the app I get a pop up telling me to turn Bluetooth on. No thank you.
  • Stop telling me to turn on Bluetooth

    By DragonLordLeda
    In the recent update, every time Bluetooth is not turned on & I try to exist the app, the game asks “turn on Bluetooth to use Pokémon Go accessories.” So annoying!
  • 50km problems

    By joe_mazza24
    I lost my 50km walk rewards my game froze had to back out got back on and I lost it! How is that fair?? I want my rewards back! It’s not easy for me to constantly get 50 km.. I feel ripped off...
  • Update Ideas.

    By Gsnice31
    Calendar Can y’all make an update in the news tab where there’s a calendar that show all events and clicking on an event will show details of it. Eggs Can we have a way to discard or at least gift/trade unwanted eggs. Or where we can take the lesser eggs and use stardust to power them up to a strong one. For example taking 3 2km eggs and using x amount of stardust and turn it into a 5km egg. Raid Timer I think there should be a shorter timer for raid and also some sort of vote to start button that will start the raid once everyone is waiting. A lot of times it’s only a few people or it fills up with 20 trainers right away and everyone is just sitting waiting for it to start. Me personally I solo raid quite a bit and it’s annoying to having to wait the full timer just to get into the raid. Map Can we get a map that shows the gyms and the current raids going on. This will help people know key locations to meet up and and beat the raid together since we won’t just be guessing where to go or just going to the same locations as we always do. Pokémon Sorting There should be more specific ways to filter and sort through our huge Pokémon inventories (type, alolan, shiny, lucky) Watchlist The “nearby” window is helpful but it would be nice to have some settings where we can see Pokémon that we’re specifically looking for to help get to them faster and find them more easily. Friendship Levels There should be more ways to increase your this level other than sending gifts daily. If the same people are always raiding together that’s one key way to increase the level. Medals Can we get more medals to earn? Some of them are pretty easy to complete and it would just give us something else to be working for other than just playing to keep our streaks going and getting bored after we catch the latest raid boss. Also some better rewards for completing the medals. It’s disappointing to finally finish a medal to only get new clothes for what you’ve done especially for some of the harder ones to earn. Eeveelutions There should be a reliable way to know or increase the chance of which evolution you’re going to get from your Eevee. The naming trick is fine but it only works once. People don’t want to waste time and candy on a random evolution that they already have. The evolution stones would be perfect for this. It’s already hard enough as it is getting those but at least with that we’re guaranteed to get what we want. IV We should be able to see our Pokémon’s IV on their summary window so we don’t have to rely on outside sources like Poke Genie. It’s a great app but a lot of extra work when deciding on which Pokémon we’re going to keep and use for battle, defending, and evolving. These are all things that I’ve thought about for a while and I know the PoGo community would definitely appreciate. I know it would time some time but it’d be cool to see some if not all of these ideas added to the game.
  • Once upon a time a money possessed App known as PokémonGo ATTACKED!

    By N3h3m
    Once upon a time a person who hardly deals with any type of issues that this story entails was attacked by an evil possessed App known as PokémonGo, tho this evil App use to be good it became to deadly hungry for money as time progressed. The innocent Pokémon lover of a person was sadly attacked by the evil possessed App & received a dream from the powerful almighty savior known as Apple about a purchase made on December 2. Tho no purchase was made & no coins showed on the possessed PokémonGo App concerns quickly arose, the person rushed & slid & pushed all the way to a separate land to check a magically beautiful thing known as a credit card, once checking the person fretted what had been witnessed. As such a money hungry thing had to of attacked the person quickly hurried to the receipt & tapped a finger three times to get to the powerful almighty savior known as Apple. Once Apple shined its powers help from a beautiful lady known as Hetila arose, she gave such valuable information & all was learned by her but sadly Hetila had to return. Upon her departure the sad confused person pushed away to find knowledge in a place known as SETTINGS, settings was so vast & confusing tho that the interpretation of such knowledge took time. After so much time had passed the knowledge was gained & the person slid & pushed all the way back to the powerful & almighty savior known as Apple. Upon being close to Apple clicks & clicks of monsters arose to try to stop the person but the person attacked & forced themselves all the way threw & sat & waited until Apple once again shined its powers, upon the almighty saviors powers being shined once more help came forth, the help was a strong man known as Jay, Jay tapped away to poor out such power such unbelievable unstoppable power that everything seemed ok but unbeknownst to him Hetila witnessed this from far away & saw help was needed & she took & put forth all of her beauty to help him. So much was done by both that the attack against the possessed evil App known as PokémonGo seemed successful but it was not, the attack continued to go on but nothing happened until the hurt worried person who played the evil possessed PokémonGo App stepped in & helped put forth his own power, once he did such a thing all three of their powers United & where able to return all $10.69 back to the magically beautiful thing known as a credit card. After the money returned relief was granted to them all tho uncertainty remained with the person. Was the attack successful, was it decent, was it safe. To this day no one is to know given the evil possessed part of the App known as PokémonGo could still come forth & attack once more. Some say the answer is to stay away while others show no fear & believe in their safety, what the true answer is may always remain unknown.

  • Good but needs improvement

    By The Adjective Noun
    The good before the bad. Good: It’s connected to Apple Health and google fit. So even if you can’t go walking if your at work or are at a gym. It’ll track your movements. It also is connected to the new Pokémon Let’s go Eevee/Pickachu. But it’s a one way transfer from PoGo to Let’s Go. It does have malicious micro transactions that all mobile games are infested with, but they’re not predatory like Electronic Arts Microtransactions are, and they’re completely optional if you really want to support the game. The bad: Depending on your population you are punished. Not many Pokémon will spawn and Gym’s and Pokéstops are little. Many events are held for major metropolitan places and the higher population you live in the more Pokémon will spawn and the more Gym’s and Pokéstops there will be. Sometimes you’ll have to uninstall and reinstall to be able to log in. You’ll be logged out and can’t log back in for a while you’ll get an error stating your account can’t be found. Sometimes you’ll log in and it’ll be in infinite loading. Sometimes Pokémon can’t be captured due to it loading so you’ll automatically lose your items. Many Pokémon will “attack” you after you throw your ball resulting you losing your ball, or they’ll be so far back that regardless how hard you throw it won’t hit them so you can’t capture them. Sometimes Gym’s and Pokéstops won’t register the spin and it’ll be lock for 5 minutes. Notifications won’t register or show up regardless if you have notifications turned on. Example if you have a Pokémon in a gym and it gets returned you won’t know until you log in. If these were to get improved it wouldn’t be bad, but I can’t justify giving it three stars.

  • Trying to catch pokemon

    By puppyfoxy
    What is the point of using berries, throwing curve balls and getting “Great” hits if the pokemon use like 15 great balls and STILL run away. I understand yall wanna make it challenging but thats ridiculous. Please change this. If you throw a curve ball and hit a great or exultant you should catch it. Not it just run away from ya. Please do somthin
  • Game is insanely fun, but could certainly improve

    By A raging customer
    Me and my friends play this 12:00pm to 7:30pm like every day on the weekends now, it’s just so fun to compete and conquer your own city/town. The only problem is how easy that is to do. Gym battling is heavily, HEAVILY favored towards the attacker. The attacker can dodge attacks, bring 6 Pokémon to the fight and try as many times as they like to defeat the gym, and they can bring their friends to help out. The defender can only put one Pokémon(per person, that is), which degrades in power stupidly fast (like, 100-0 overnight) and you can’t even effectively repair them because you can only give so many berries at a time. If you want to keep a Pokémon in a gym at maximum strength, you’d basically have to work/live in radius of it which is like 50 meters. In addition, you can only get 50 pokecoins maximum each day from your gyms, total. So it doesn’t matter how many you are defending, you will always only get 50 per day, and one 3 use incubator, for hatching Pokémon out of eggs, costs 100. I just wish they’d make Pokémon battling like it is in the Nintendo games, where its turn based. Or atleast they could dial back the CP degradation, like, tenfold
