    Great game they sure have come a long way since the launch all those years ago. I wish there was a more efficient way to communicate with other players especially for raids. It is hard to organize a party with no communicate keys available to other players that may not be apart of your close knit group of Friends or even in the same country. Pokefest 2020 was a blast I hope there's another event soon.

    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’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.

    Fun and usually plenty to do. It loses 1 star for me because I wish there was more leeway with pokestops - there's a few local to me; 1 I can usually access from my sofa, not move, then be told I need to move closer to interact! Another pokestop is literally just across a busy road (wish I could use it & not have to walk out of my way to cross the road then double back to get to it). But overall I enjoy it; easy to learn, etc.

  • 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.

    Expensive and addictive pay to play game. Very little reward, no end game just keep collecting the same exact Pokemon over and over again. There are "shiny" Pokemon which are suppose to look different, they put very little effort in that. Of course you could earn the coins to get things but that takes forever and that means everything when there is content in the game that is time sensitive. All in all I believe they need to drop the prices (15 dollars for a tiny event) and increase the reward.

  • 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...

    It's a great concept and game is really interesting to play, but at the same time they have the worst developers that you can find . For a company that makes billions in revenue , the app is full of bugs and optimisation issues. They keep on adding few features without fixing the previous issues, which has made this game a mess.

    I am a huge fan of pokemon. The catching part of this game has a few issues when it comes to lagging but nothing I can't live with. However when it comes to battling it lags to the point where its almost unplayable. I have my phone hooked up to 100/mbps wifi that can run call of duty off my xbox with at most 50 ping. But if I try to play pokemon go, my phone decides to have a seizure.

    As a Pokemon fan, this is truly an enjoyable and fulfilling experience! I could easily spend hours on the app playing my heart out. I love the research tasks. I love how it has connected trainers all over the world! I love beating Team Rocket, it makes me feel so good. The only thing that would make it even better (for 5.5 stars) would be introducing Sylveon for my fairy loving heart and maybe braids as a hairstyle? I love Pokemon GO!!!

    Love the game huge fan. I did however find a bug during go fest 2020. I did my first giratina raid with some friends. We beat it but i got kicked out when trying to catch it and was never able to re-enter the raid to do so. It had a red bar across the top stating: this item could not be obtained at this time. Everyone else got theirs but i guess i was just unlucky haha

    It a fun game. It has some glitches every now & then. My only complaint is I wish they change the ratio of shinies you can catch. I been playing this game basically non-stop for 2 weeks. I hadn't caught a single shiny. I have better chances hatching one or getting one in a raid. I played all through the dragon week & hadn't caught a single shiny Dratini or other dragon type Pokemon. I am now playing all through the enigma week & same thing. Other players catch as much as I do & caught shinies.

    Grate way to keep yourself active and meet up with people. But I will say. The go battles need work. I got my charge attack ready and my Pokemon kept doing the quick attack. Even though I was selecting the charge attack. Thus making lose my battle. This has happened a lot lately. I would look into rewarding more coins for longer gym holding. I held a gym for 2 days and thought 50 coins wasn't even enough for holding it that long.

    The updates are making this game steadily better, however certain elements of the game remain better advertised than executed. Example the buddy system advertised that you would be able to play games with your pokemon and in reality that means you can rub its belly and get a heart. Not really a game now is it?? Overall its a good game but the developers seem to advertise it to be something it is not and never will be. Don't play this is if you have high expectations.

    I think this game is great! It motivates me to walk my usual route and I can play even when I am not walking because of battles and leveling Pokemon. However, for first time players, I recommend you do some research on the game as there is no tutorial. My boyfriend plays so he can explain things I don't understand but not everyone has that. So please do some research to help optimize your experience. I am so addicted to this game and it is incredibly fun even for me who is not a huge Pokemon fan

  • 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.

  • 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.

    I enjoy playing this game every day. I have played this game for almost the complete time it first came out. The last 6 months I have had a problem with staying logged in or when I do, my avatar is frozen, all over the map and is not in the right direction. I have restarted the game, my phone, reloaded the app and I still have the same problem. This needs to be fix.

  • Horrible customer service!!!!!! Jul 30, 2020

    By BrianLind2727
    I’m writing this because of an experience I just had with this game. I’m a long time player, I have been playing since the game came out. Anyways I took part in go fest that just took place and besides a few glitches everything was fine until 8pm hit on Sunday. I was playing and I had a Durant spawn at 8pm and it was shiny!!! I couldn’t believe it I was so excited so I took a snap shot of it and then proceeded to catch it. I posted the Pokémon I just got on the Pokémon messager group I am in to show everyone how excited I was. Well that’s when everything went south. I went back to my game and it wasn’t shiny anymore... so I took screenshots of everything including the original shiny one I had and sent it to niantic to have them try and fix it. Well guess what the creators of the game said they can’t help me... I mean you would think that maybe they would wanna do something to make me happy because I have been playing this game for 4 years and have given them thousands of dollars. So I messaged them and told them my situation again and all they said was it’s a glitch and nothing they can do.. they didn’t even offer any sort of compensation for my troubles. Then Regina was the person who messaged me and was very rude about everything. Well I am very disappointed in the customer service they offer and I will absolutely think twice before spending my money and time in this game again if this is how they treat people!!!
