I like the game, I was a bit worried to get it when it came out at first, but after installing it and learning how it generally works I like it a lot. I would love to see more pokemon added and maybe even some PvP/ being able to challenge other people around you some day. So far it's been great, I'm not really sure why so many people have been so upset about it, but it's definitely a 5/5 for me so far. Full Review

It is a fine game to play, if you want to waste time. Obviously, it is different from main pokemon game series. However, if you can't get the main series game(even through emulator), this is a alright game in my opinion to replace it. The raid boss is a pretty interesting concept and with the new wave of pokemons coming in, I would say the game has made progress for the better over the months. With raids, new generation of pokemons introduces and events. However, there are some bugs in the newest update(with some from the lld update getting fixed). For instances, I did not receive any pokecoins from the gym despite my pokemon being there for more than 8 hours. And even when it said my pokemon have return with pokecoins, the pokecoins were not added to my balance of pokecois. So there is that. Overall, the game is decent. Definitely better than it was before. However, there are many things it could improve on. So I am hoping for such improvements in the future. Full Review

Constantly saying GPS not found (11). She jumps to random places and takes forever to even move. Its basically useless.. I was going to get a new phone to play this thinking it would work better but even after the update it hasn't changed. Waste all my data trying to play. Not happy. Disappointed. Full Review
Sean Curtis Published date: February 15, 2018
The game has been majorly revamped and has benefited from it. It's so much better to see that content and events are happening more often. Hopefully we'll see the first wave of gen 4 by April or May and a nice egg event will happen to get a higher chance of a baby Pokemon from gen 4. Keep up the great work only downside is legendaries. I can't get them as not enough people in my area play Pokemon go and I'm not travelling for a Pokemon. Can we have a legendary event for one week you can get 3* legendary raids? That would make it easier. Full Review
Tammy Mierow Published date: February 17, 2018
Tried it...Loved It! It's a game I can enjoy with my 8 yr old. More addicting than I thought it'd be & I'm 48 yrs old. I love the part where you walk & get rewarded while you do it. It can be disappointing when eggs hatch and its a repeat monster but the candy you need to maximize it works itself out in the long run. Full Review
Isaac Wyscaver Published date: February 15, 2018
Requires constantly lookong at the screen(unsafe while walking on street). Doesn't count steps traveled unless application is actively in use. No rural support. Not enough pokestops or gyms in my area parks or other public areas that are safe to access. No player vs player combat. No trading. Doesn't really seem like a Pokemon game, more of a gimmick. Full Review

Can you please make it so that some Pokemon spon even if you dont go out, I wanna play from home but no Pokemon ever spon . Also can you make it so we can earn coins. I can't buy coins but I want to have a chance to earn coins so I can buy things to use. Thanks I love the game though it's awesome! Full Review

I would give 5 stars but my account got lost and I can't figure out how to get it back. Also, when trying to contact Niantic you aren't able to leave an email. Their troubleshooting doesn't work. This game needs a Sign on screen that actually works so you can pull your account up instead of it starting you all over. I spent a lot of money on my previous account because I like the game. I will not spend a dime on this account to have it lost again Full Review
Ben Arneault Published date: February 15, 2018
Its getting better. Haven't done raids yet, but hopefully the EX Pass business is fixed soon. Would like to see more Pokestops in rural areas. Arlington has plenty scattered around but anywhere outside in a suburb is a ghost town. Also with more legendary PokÃ©mon, maybe add some extra teams or the ability to switch. (Kinda getting tired of Mythic) Full Review
Gene Lee Published date: February 14, 2018
Updated content since the app was launched. Still recommended. Suggestion: After the daylight savings time change, raiding ends too early in the evenings. Setting raids to continue spawning eggs until after 8pm EST at the earliest would be great. Thanks and keep up the hard work. Full Review
8 bit Gamer Published date: February 18, 2018
Niantic refuse to ban hackers. I can't battle gyms, they get taken over by other players using other means. Gameplay experience has gotten worse because of this. Sick and tired of gyms instantly taken down, even when you help defend. Full Review
Seana Dykes Published date: February 17, 2018
Recently it's gone terrible with how many poke balls you need to catch any pokemon. I just used 100+ on ten pokemon six of which ran away! Totally not fair. It's not easy to get many poke balls anymore, really feel like giving this game up. Full Review
Tvrtko Christopher SamardÅ¾ija Published date: February 15, 2018
So far so good, every bugfix update brings new problems instead of bugfixes, but every new update tackles some of these problems. I really hope you'll weed out all the problems by 2020. And the idea to drop a whole generation gradually? Very daring, I must say, and not particularly smart. But in case everyone forgets they are playing a Pokemon game, maybe it won't be that bad.

When you released the "Team Rocket" outfit set I went to buy it with my coins and it freezes every time I go to buy the set or any other outfits I haven't bought. Also the GPS tracker is kinda off from the real world. All in all it is an awesome game. I'll give it 5/5 when I can buy the outfits again. ð Full Review
Santiago Garabaya Published date: February 16, 2018
Game idea is good, implementation is not good at all. This game will drain your battery, overheat your device and consume all your mobile data; GPS accuracy is terrible, and the animations slow and cumbersome. TL;DR: it sucks Full Review
Mohd Azizi Abd Rashid Published date: February 15, 2018
Recent gym update is most welcome but still no solution to spoofers and please fix defender bonus ratio. It's impossible to defend a gym in high traffic areas and lets not forget spoofers kicking defenders out of gyms. Getting just 1 coin after defending the gym for 1 hour is just ridiculous Full Review
Gavin Yates Published date: February 17, 2018
Would be 5 stars if was more like the actual game where you could battle friends and wild Pokemon. I wish there was an option to only show the original 151 too. I stopped playing once others were added Full Review
Jerald Jan Paz Published date: February 16, 2018
It is better than before.. but needs to have more pokestops or maybe some gyms in suburban areas. Im rooting for gen 4! And for an update where we can interact to other trainers for battles and maybe trades. Thanks Full Review
Tirthankar Das Published date: February 17, 2018
I am in level 29 and have registered 360 pokemon in my pokedex. I have been playing the game since 10/01/2017.The legendary pokemon are awesome. Only a few requests to Niantic.... 1. Please make MEWTWO raids more widespread around the world. 2.Please release MEW and CELEBI raids . Full Review

What the actual eff are you guys doing!? DROP EVERY SHINY ALREADY ESPECIALLY CHARMANDER!! I've played since day 1 and im sick of these gimmicks to make the game enjoyable do right but us and make it fun again. Also please please please do something to make our starter PokÃ©mon worth something. Like in the buddy system your starter should get 2 guaranteed candies or some kind of starter bonus! Ps im sick of these "good decisions" and happy do same thing for same rewards event garabage like make the game fun again Full Review
cody Johnson Published date: February 17, 2018
Lags when trying to catch a raid boss which leads many people to missing out on good mon.. You need to put a practice range in the game where people can go and throw at differwnt distances and heights .. The rayquaza is bullcrap.. So high that many can't even throw high enough to touch him most the time time Full Review
Jason Kidd Published date: February 18, 2018
Getting a bit bored with it, very annoying when you waste a raid pass because the game bombs out or there wasn't enough people or whatever, you can't get a refund on it so that's it for a day. It can be a bit temperamental anyway. Various buggy issues, it can slow the device right down, it will bomb out and so on, had Pokemon fall through the floor. Ex-raid pass situation is pretty dodgy too. That's twice I've been screwed on them now, this time I get one for a gym 12000! miles away I visited 6 months ago when I was in a different country. I almost gave up after the last one, think this is the final straw. Feels like a bit of a waste of time now. Full Review
Amber Duch Published date: February 17, 2018
It is always saying that it can't find my GPS signal. My location is on and I even have service on my phone, so there is no reason why it can't find my GPS. This is really frustrating because then the pokemon in my "near me" list disappear and don't pop back up until it connects to the GPS again. I would like to play without any interruptions. Its a nice game but still has issues. I play on my G5. Full Review
Chris Ratcliffe Published date: February 18, 2018
Do not spend money on this game its a waste! So many bugs in gyms its unbelievable. Update was supposed to fix them but its worse than ever. If they fix will be great but till then its too frustrating Full Review

It's a very awesome game I play it just about every day, evening, or night. Except for one problem, the battery on my phone was at 86% before playing for 10 min., then when I went to check it after that 10 min. it was at 15%... (I know that it was from the location), but fix that drainage battery problem ASAP! Thanks. Full Review
Taylor Bolar Published date: February 17, 2018
Way fun for people that have patients a lot of people just don't under stand that to be good at this game reveries a commitment you can't just barely play the game and expect to be really good. I really like the addictions of shinies that add a good challenge to the game... it took me 700 Magikarp to get a shiny oneð Full Review
eric grant Published date: February 15, 2018
I wish that I could say I liked this game. I only play because I enjoy pokemon, thats it. The game is constantly crashing and gliching out, has little content for what they said would happen, and seems to be solely made to screw over players for cash. The best option is to just shell out some cash for a 3ds and play a real game rather than this garbage. Full Review
T. de Blanken Published date: February 16, 2018
App self it's not a problem it's the very slow buggy servers still can't handle the lood of users... The nearby PokÃ©mon stays blank And a lot of GPS bugs, Catch PokÃ©mon in Papendrecht, catch location says Dordrecht. It's out al long time so fix the lag, buggy servers. And more lose of balls than catch PokÃ©mon. Full Review
Mike Burtoo Published date: February 17, 2018
All is great... Only issue is that when you are sorting your pokemon the pokemon list automatically goes to the beginning after each transfer #NoBueno Also it's kinda hard to "Catch 'em All When Gen 2 Pokemon don't appear as often as the could.... I am missing Mareep... I'm missing a few key Pokemon from this generation.... Full Review

Tons of server side errors, also absolutely nothing to do after level 40, raid battles are all same grinding without any tactical element. Gym battle system is extremely frustrating since you have to wait cutscenes longer than actually fight. Full Review

It has been draining my battery In 10 mins so I got rid of it and my phone has been fine but the app is amazing so please make the battery drain thing better. Edit:Thanks for fixing the battery draining problem the game has been very enjoyable and fun ð Full Review
Ralph Blakely Published date: February 15, 2018
This is the only app that crashes my phone. After waiting months for an ex raid pass, they awarded me a pass for a gym on a different continent! Niantic cares so much about profit, that they refuse to fix bugs in their game. Not worth your time. Full Review
Heather Smithson Published date: February 15, 2018
Update: Gym sniping is back, which is awful. Please bring back the ability for people to NOT drop in gyms when it's under attack. The potion and revive issue is still present. It's slightly better, but still not quite adequate. If you need to decrease an item in order to increase others, may I suggest Nanabs. No one will miss them. I get more Nanabs than I do revives and potions. Full Review
Lyllian Blackshear Published date: February 16, 2018
With every update I'm getting more issues. When I open it, it closes on its own and my brother is having the same issue. I still enjoy it but the issues need to be fixed because they're annoying. Full Review
the special tear Published date: February 17, 2018
Used to love this game, but now it's annoying as hell. I can't catch as many stupid Pokemon because they keep running away from me! And when I spin a pokestop, "Try again later." This happens with gyms too. I wish I could give this -5 stars. ððð¬ð¬ I now updated this and it still thinks I'm hacking! ;-; -_- how am I going to find a pokestop to unban me if I'm not near one? Full Review
Kam and Jenn Wimberly Published date: February 17, 2018
I like the game. It brings a new step to an old childhood favorite. However, im noticing some issues. Firstly, there are plenty of places that have pokestops and gyms but dont spawn pokemon (Ex: the AF armament meuseam). Secondly, the coin generation cap for the gym holding is atrocious simply because it cuts off a lot of profit that trainers could yield from dedicating their time to keeping their pokemon well fed in the gyms. Thirdly, stackability with daily raid passes. I understand that limiting how many you can get for free a day is the easiest way for Niantic to turn a profit on them but do your users that cant just drop a piss ton of cash on your app a favor and let us collect daily raid passes like other items in our bag. Overall, i understand that this is a free app with in app purchases. However, i do believe that if Niantic took the time to actually cater to their users they'd be able to more easily garner a larger profit. Full Review
mscobee1 Published date: February 15, 2018
I can't get past the loading screen, the pokestops don't give enough Pokeballs, most of the Raid Battle bosses are way too hard. I love this game but it needs some fixing. Full Review
Annelie Bakkes Published date: February 17, 2018
Amazing game,though I do wish that you could change teams, even if we could do it only once.I hadn't given my team much thought until after I chose it.I only realised a day after I chose my team that I made the wrong choice .I have sent a request to Niantic to change my team,but I am still waiting for a reply.So if you could fix that it would really be appreciated.
