    very addicting game, its much more fun now to boot with all the stuff they added since it came out. It however does get old and become very repetitive, and really, it seems like it's become a cash grab with all these events and raids. I feel as though I'm missing out on stuff if I don't always buy the extras during community day and things of that nature.

  • It’s good but needs some improvement Aug 16, 2019

    By ndjwjxbxns
    First, I’d like to say that it’s a pretty good game but it has its flaws. I think that one major issue is running out of pokeballs which is super annoying. When you give your Pokémon to the professor you should get back the pokeball you used to catch it with. Say you catch like your fourth Bellsprout and you just give it to the professor for some Bellsprout candies. Well that kind of stinks for you because you don’t get that pokeball and it all seems like a waste. Second, coins should be more available in-game. Say you are low in pokeballs and you’d like some more but of course you need money for coins and coins for pokeballs. I know it’s a free game and Pokémon GO makes most of its money off of in app purchases but it’s a pretty popular game so maybe charge money for the game itself or money for cosmetics on your character. Another thing is there are so little chances to battle your Pokémon. You can really do trainer battles and that’s it. I mean you can do gym battles and battle friends but what happened to being able to battle wild Pokémon till there weak so you can catch them. You should add a feature where you can battle other trainer based on their skill set and Pokémon compared to your own. I’m just saying there are a few blockades in the way of this game becoming more fun and just overall better. This game is decent otherwise. Maybe try and make some of these improvements and maybe more add-ons to the game.

    I have to update my original "Great!", to, the updates suck, because I have a lot of pictures, and apps, and each time that they want to do an update, like every 2 weeks, I have to delete a bunch of pictures, apps, just to make the update go through. Yesterday's update still won't go through for me, so I missed my streak. This is really pissing me off now! I spent hours yesterday, and today, already, deleting, resetting my phone, and it still won't work.

    Almost. I love the new trading and friend system, this has been one of my favorite games over the last couple years. But I think that you guys should add a chat system to organize raids better. It could be like a messaging system between friends only so that way there no trouble with stalking or anything negative like that but it would make it easier to organize raid parties without having to download a third party app like WhatsApp which requires you to let everyone know your phone number. Also it would be great to be able to buy great or ultra balls from the shop as well. I walked at a park near me for about 30 miles and caught every Pokémon that appeared. By the end of the walk I only received about 40 ultra balls and 50 great balls which sounds great until you consider that I walked for 9 hours. I received plenty of regular poke balls though(over 250 to be exact). One last note, I live in Miami and there are plenty of places to go play Pokémon go but sometimes I wish I could just walk around my area without having to travel to play. There’s plenty of things that could be pokestops near me but just aren’t. There are 2 churches on my corner that don’t have pokestops. Right across the street there is a building with a cool design that could be a pokestops but I refuse to download ingress just to request pokestops.

    I picked this up as a way for me and my PokeObsessed son to get out together. We absolutely love it, and then we discovered that we can use Adventure Sync to track all the walking I do at work, which was amazing. Until, that is, a couple weeks ago when it stopped counting my distance with the app closed. We are trying to evolve a Magicarp and it needs 400 km walked to do so, walking at work was really helping. If that could be fixed we would be eternally grateful.

I opened the app. When I say it took a long time to load I mean I watched 3 episodes of shameless kind of long time. That's just unbelievable. I will not be reinstalling this game till that is fixed. It's a shame. I used to really like this game.

  • Account Issues May 10, 2020

    By ValhallaViking
    First off, I’m a huge Pokémon fan! Have been all my life. I got super far in my original account but then it wasn’t letting me buy stuff in the shop with my coins I had. So I figured I’d log out and go back in. Now it’s saying my password isn’t correct which I know it is. But then I requested an email to change it. They said it was sent but I never got it. I tried retrying and it said the link is active for 48 hours. Does that mean I’ll get the email within 48 hours or I have 48 hours? I tried using a made up email just to see what would happen and they said there’s no account on there with that email. Just wanted to be sure the email wasn’t a problem. So why is it not allowing me to change my password by sending me an email?? Also I made a second one just for the meantime but on this one it won’t allow me progress with egg hatching and/or buddy Pokémon getting candies. I turned all settings on for allowing my location and all that. My battery saving mode isn’t on either. Aside from that, I can’t add friends. It said that it won’t load and to try again later. All I’m saying is that on my original account, everything was okay. I was even playing earlier this morning. Is there anything that can be done? I can’t even really get the full experience because the events have to do with my buddy getting candies and also hatching eggs. What can be done?? I’m just upset because I put so much time and effort into this all for this to happen...

    The game used to be great but then Megas came out and turned it into a "pay to win" game. This will only get worse because of they're obvious corporate greed. This game is jam packed with bugs that seems to never be fixed or even looked into. The support team is totally useless. I won't be playing much longer at this rate. Wish I could "Rate" the game 0/5.

    This was a good app, but I am beyond pissed at how the updates keep making the game nigh unplayable until enough people complain. I was in a raid, actually beat it, came across a shiny giratina, and then the game wouldn't let me throw the pokeball, then froze, and made the whole app restart. If Niantic is going to keep updating the game as often as they are, they need to make sure the core fuctions actually work.

  • Hands down, best app available. Jul 15, 2020

    By GsMurderface
    I’ll shoot it to you straight. Don’t listen to the negative reviews. Contrary to “popular” belief, this game isn’t “paywalled” unless you have a fear of missing out on what other players spend 6+ hours achieving in a day. A very small portion of exclusive events are paywalled, like go fest/safari zone and that’s it. If you want items from the store, Drop in as many gyms as possible, it’s good for 350 coins per week if done right, and have reasonable expectations (and by that I mean shiny Pokémon. Shiny Pokémon in GO are given out at an insanely high rate compared to main series games) Competitive gameplay (Go battle league) having some glitching issues, doesn’t make it a bad game for those that choose not to play competitively, and even with the glitching, proper investments in Pokémon far outweigh any glitching that occurs, that and most players just expect to go 5/5 on every round played and anything less than that is a failure on Niantic’s part. Raids are very easy if you toss your IV expectations out the window and focus on high CP counters. Each Pokémon has given base stats, and IV doesn’t make or break most Pokémon when raiding, counters make or break your success. The game is completely add free, it’s free of actual currency, it’s fun, it’s addictive and it gets you outside. Just play it how YOU want to play it, and you’ll love it regardless.

    I like the game, that seems to be repetitive but I have my grandbabies that play it. I just enjoy playing trying to get a higher pokemon along with different kinds. and it gives you something else to talk about when you don't have nothing in common. It beats the bars.. the expression on people's faces is priceless when they hear what I'm playing. Kids are in their 30s we watched the show when they were lil. Nice pikachu

  • This game has come very far Sep 5, 2020

    By ThAtS nOt A wOrD
    I’ve been playing this game since week 1. There was a month of 2 when I had it deleted because I wasn’t playing it, but when gen 3 was added I came right back. I’ve spent a good hundred dollars on this game, and I really only have 1 complaint in the dinosaur of video game perfection. I just wish Mega Evolution was better. Anyway, the way they have adapted into making play from hone easier is really nice, so people don’t risk getting sick. If you look back at the beginning of the game, you can really tell it’s growth. Research, buddies, friends, trainer battles, Team Rocket, shinies, and even legendaries weren’t even in the game at launch, and now we (almost) have 5 ENTIRE GENERATIONS with a read of gen 6. Research has been a really fun time killer when I’m bored, and the fact that Pokémon constantly spawn make it even nicer and a continuous adventure. Looking back, I feel so dumb taking a break from the game, even if it was only for 2 months. Anyone could get a blast out of it, and it’s a great way to drop a couple of pounds even if you’re only going out once a day! A lot of people got it at the start and quit a few weeks/months. If your one of those people, definitely check this game out again! This game has come so far, and I can’t wait to see how much it grows in the future!

My only problem is once in a while it freezes or glitches with like switching out your buddys or not letting hatch eggs or battle but after a while it works again. But I would give this game a 4 star for it's amazing game!

  • Actually a really good game Jul 10, 2020

    By mew me
    See, I started on July 17, 2016 and I’m still playing it. The pvp battles that were added in are an easy way to gat rare items and cool pokemon. There are also five generations of Pokémon in game so there is a lot of variety with Pokémon. The updates during corona make it easier to play without going outside so that makes it a lot more enjoyable to play. And I’m not sure if this helps but the 3D models make good drawing references for me. I’m a long time Pokémon fan and have been playing since 2001. I really don’t understand the critical reviews. I think that this game is simple to understand and good for all ages. You can also get motivated to exercise with this app. The game has good graphics too. My only complaint is that many people are hacking the game. I think that a game that is still receiving updates in 2020 should be harder to hack into. Also there may be daily gift boxes that give you pokeballs but some of us don’t have many Pokestops around their homes so we don’t have much accessibility to pokeballs. Even so, it’s a good overall pokemon game and I would recommend it to many. Thank you for taking your time to read my review by the way. 4 stars for me! But please stop asking for Pokémon that haven’t been added in yet to be added in. Gen 6 along with greninja will be added Later. Thank you again.

  • Amazing Jul 26, 2020

    By crazygirl123887
    This app is an amazing app! It is an amazing way to kill time and a great app to get your exercise in! There are a couple things that I think could be better. I feel there should be a chat space! So you can talk to the people you are friends with to meet up and do raids or battle together. Instead of having to download an app which even then you need to at least know there phone number. I feel you should be able to get more than 50 coins a day. Or at least be able to get a bonus for every continuous day your Pokémon is at a gym. Saying that I know that the prices to buy stuff is set to match the amount of coins able to be received each day. So if needed I feel it would be ok to up the price on coins a little. For trading.... I feel you should be able to choose what your friend gets. Or at least be able to put something in there for them besides a sticker. This also adds onto the fact that we need a chat system between friends to be able to tell what each other needs and or is receiving. I know you have the notifications for what your friend has received but it would still be nice to be able to say “oh thanks for the poke balls dude” or something along the lines of that. Overall this game is amazing! And I get on it several times a day. But I am sure other people have been saying things along the lines of what I have said! I mean none of this is no rude way but I do feel that these things should either be changed or added into the game!

I'm on my feet all day at work and these steps are no longer recorded. I've followed all steps I can find online to make sure my phone isn't blocking this feature. It's not. This is definitely an issue with the game.

  • It is fun. Jun 12, 2020

    By Zeximite
    It is indeed fun and has grown a lot since I first started about four years ago. I am also really glad they retracted with the sprite version of Pokémon. I would have quit. I am proud that those behind Pokémon Go are doing what they can to help people enjoy the app during the pandemic. Even more so, I commend them for standing up for the black people and all races. Being anything other than white dose not mean that they mean less. To me they mean so much more. Now on from that and back to Pokémon Go. I find myself pondering weather to keep with Pokémon go, or to let it go. Community days end when workers are getting off work or kids getting off school. That is extremely unfair. There should also be more Pokémon, Pokémon stops and gems for those in rural areas. Also, I purchased a remote raid pass for the event. When I hopped in to join, the people left so I hopped out only to find that I had completely lost my remote raid pass. This was also unfair as other raid passes do not vanish when you hop in and out when others leave. Another reason for me to consider leaving. It is very wrong for the raid to be used up like that especially when we have to pay for them. I surely will not buy another, event or not. Sure, coins, incubators, lucky eggs and so on are expected to disappear when used, but when other raid passes let you hop in and out, it is shameful to take the remote raid pass without having participated in any raid. That is all I have to say.

  • Not gonna lie Aug 29, 2018

    By aahliegh
    I’m not even going to lie, I’m 27 and absolutely love this game. I grew up with Pokémon and this is by far the best Pokémon game. I stopped playing for a year or so because I reached the top level and got bored with it; about 6 months ago my husband convinced me to redownload it because of the numerous new features and two more generations of Pokémon that had been added to the game. Unfortunately as of lately I’ve been having nothing but problems with getting it to load. This is now the third time in a week that I’ve had to uninstall and reinstall the game and unfortunately this time it doesn’t appear to even be reinstalling. And yes the app and phone software are all up to date and everything like that. On top of that, on my other phone, if/when the game loads it no longer loads all of the way. It’s genuinely one of the most frustrating things I’ve been dealing with because playing this game keeps me out of trouble and out of my own head. It’s definitely become my biggest hobby and biggest outlet, so when I’m stressed out to the max and it doesn’t want to load - which seems to be every single time I’m excessively stressed lately- it just makes everything worse. I was praying that these last batch of updates they did would have fixed that but I haven’t even been able to get the game to load since it updated! That is literally the only downside to it and unfortunately it’s a major one.

  • Fun game, needs to be polished Apr 10, 2020

    By mzhur77
    Love the game. With the newer updates there’s a lot more to do in a more organized way. Most of the objectives of the game work flawlessly. The inner economy of items and Pokémon’s creates a wonderful system that makes you want to come back and play more. But, there are a lot of issues to still work out. One of which is the coins and gyms system. Right now, you can only get 50 coins per day. And a pokemon earns a single coin per 10 minutes in a gym. You would reach the max limit for coins in about 8 hours. This creates an issue, in which, if you have 4 pokemon in different gyms that have been in there for all over a day. Well over the limit. Meaning you could make 200 coins total, if they get defeated on different days. However, if they are all defeated on a single day then you only receive 50 coins for all 4, missing out on the 150. Currently, there is no work around this issue. You can’t recall your pokemon early, and if one gets stuck in a gym you are sitting there praying for it to be beaten. Another issue is with the combat leagues. When I first started the game with my most powerful pokemon at about 1000cp to try out the feature, the opponents were vastly unbalanced. I had to fight a 3000cp mewtwo on my 4th or so fight. It just seems that some of the features weren’t given enough time as opposed to other features of the game, and that lackluster approach clearly shows.
