Wow they killed pokestops. 2 items per spin. N daily bonus is like 4 or 5. Money it's all they want. PokÃ©mon was made for fun and enjoyment. Sure they make money but they always find a way to make the game better each generation. But now the fun has ended when you must pay real money for just a few poke balls. N during good events that bring us together to play. N no stops within a few miles. N to only get maybe 3 balls a day :( Full Review

The game is good and fun. Missing just a few aspects to make it a great 5 star worthy game. Like trading, PvP battles, and possibly an elite four system. Really enjoyed the original tracker which they should bring back, even if alongside the existing one. Made it feel more real. Either way, they're hands are tied with a lot of stuff from Nintend and gamefreak and they are constantly updating the game. So I give em props for that. Full Review

This is my favorite thing to do alone or with friends but think you should work with google maps, pvp, and pokecenters for serious gym challengers. A global clock to see total amount of gyms controlled by which team ( live feed) it seems that most androids have a hard time with the AR function. Battery consumption is better but still needs love. Full Review
Lauren Love Published date: December 10, 2017
I have yet to see any improvements on the app that is plausible. I'd love to battle someone 1v1 instead just catching the same PokÃ©mon over & over again. I would like to keep the tracker on in the background without keeping the app open and killing my mf battery. >.> Besides, there is no pokestops nearby unless I drive to it. Fix some of the things that people asked. We will be good. âº Full Review
Kristen Myers Published date: December 8, 2017
I love this game, but there's a couple things that would make it better, like having to keep the app open to count your steps, but if you leave your app open it drains your battery really fast. Also wish that new pokemon would appear more often rather than the same ones all the time. The last thing that needs improvement is the length of time that it takes to open the app, bc it takes forever for it to load when opening. Other than those things, I really like this game and have been playing it faithfully since I started it back in July 2016. So overall, its a really awesome game! Full Review
Hylia Stone Published date: December 10, 2017
It's great, but I wish training Pokemon was more based on battling than catching. I also would love to see Pokemon interacting with the environment a little more. Finally, I would like to implore the developers to add trading and battling as soon as possible. P.S. Will there be Pokemon Contests and other such things in the future? I'd love to try my hand at being a Pokemon Co-ordinator. Full Review

This is a great way to bring back pokemon, although there are a few bugs here and there, im sure once they update the game theyll be fixed. This game is addictive and very well made. 10/10 best pokemon game so far. (in my opinion) I highly reccomend this game to pokemon fans out there. Its a great way to play the game you love, while being active and meeting fellow trainers around the world. Only thing i reccomend is having a 1v1 feature/tournaments with fellow trainers and a bit better loot from pokestops now and then. Full Review
Chris S Published date: December 8, 2017
There's only a couple pokemon that are worth using for battling. Tracking when you're walking isn't accurate all the time. Seems to be open to bots as there's some guys with multiple dragonites, etc. Would be nice if you could get, for example, an Alakazam or Victreebel that could actually be worth something Edit: still pretty much the same come Dec 2017. My top six includes 5 Rhydon and a Vaporeon. Good to play while I'm shopping or walking around but I've lost the lust to play all the time like before. Full Review
Daniel Andriano Published date: December 8, 2017
The augmented reality function has never worked on my HTC phone but on my samsung j3 basic phone everything works fine. I've had this app since it was released. Really cute, hope trading comes soon! Wish we didn't need so many people to catch legendaries but overall, still a fun app. Full Review
Noah Hicks Published date: December 15, 2017
Awesome. Can't wait for the newest version as far as like collecting Pokemon. Especially Eevee evolutions! Can't wait to collect all of them! But I do hope that Niantic decides to make it to where we get Pokecoins from each Pokemon that returns from a gyme because it would not make since if only one of them a day gives you 50 coins. But, they could have just made us pay for them... Or maybe I'm just being gready. Sigh. I don't know but I hope they do that. -_-' Full Review
Kahli Flekac Published date: December 8, 2017
Yeah, no. I've been playing for 4 days now, and haven't been able to get a single revive from any of the (many) pokestops l've been spinning. How are we meant to use gyms if we can't revive our Pokemon afterwards? This change is actually game breaking, and if it continues I'll be deleting my account. Full Review
Kelly Mumber Published date: December 7, 2017
Get out and play! My family plays together and enjoys being part of our local Pokemon GO community. We really love spending time together out in the real world, exploring new areas, being active, and meeting fellow players at raid battles. You can find local groups on Discord and Facebook. And the Seasonal Events and updates always keep us interested in playing. Seriously fun for the whole family! Full Review
Spatula Android Arsenal Published date: December 15, 2017
I like this game very much because it is very interactive and also it is not like any other game where I just have to paly in one place. But in Pokemon go I have to move in real world and catch Pokemon outside . I liked every thing in this game from graphics to gameplay . I request Niantic to allow player to use their Pokemon to catch wild Pokemon not only by using Berry's and pokeballs . If nianctic liked my idea I hope the gameplay will me much better and interactive . And also please setup virtual poke center where players can keep their Pokemon and exchange them and also if they don't have any revive potion then they can heal their Pokemon using poke coins. That's all I request Niantic to fulfil.I hope they will help me ........... Full Review
Joel Hedlund Published date: December 11, 2017
Love this game and the updates so far are a nice balance between maintenance and new content. Personally I try to fill my pokedex with wild catches rather than evolving which makes the game more challenging and interesting. One suggestion: with the pokemon count now over 350 it's becoming quote annoying to scroll through the pokedex. I would suggest to add tabs for each generation / region so you can skip there directly. Full Review
Karamvir Punia Published date: December 9, 2017
I love the game most but its not allowing me to us my any id either trainer club or google id. I am trying my best again and again but nothing happens. Sometimes it says unable to uthenticate and sometimes it says server is not loading game data Please fix it I cant wait to play it Full Review
chris rodriguez Published date: December 8, 2017
If you really wanted this game to be good you would listen to the trainers. When we heard about pokemon go we expected og pokemon. Collected meeting people on your device and being able to battle and trade anywhere. Real battles where we 1v1 somebody and use moves not freaken tap at a gym as if its fun. I want to be able to see somebody on my map challenge them and stand accross from each other as we throw our pokeballs and battle right there thats what we want Full Review
George Holderness Published date: December 13, 2017
Great game. The weather system is a really good idea. Just one thing that stops it being 5 stars and that's the pokemon spawns. Because I live in a small town all that ever spawns are pidgeys and other low pokemon. If you could just maybe make better pokemon spawn in rural areas that would be great Full Review
Brandon Published date: December 8, 2017
The game was fun when it worked properly. Now it is filled with cheaters and they removed the most important function of the game. Without footsteps, we cannot find pokemon near us, without that, we basically cannot play the game properly. The game still has glitches that were in the game since day one. Only reason I'm giving it two stars is because the game was fun to play during the first few weeks. Really disappointing coming from someone that loves the main series. Full Review
Nega Fi Published date: December 8, 2017
Honestly love the game makes my dog walks more intresting and gets me to go out more. Yes there are some glitch hes in the game but what game doesnt? I do wish however if all the pokemon would talk as they do on the shows instead or the weird sounds they placed in. And maybe even put in more pokemon in home areas instead of pidgy and rattata but over all a good game Full Review
Derek Miller Published date: December 13, 2017
If I could, I would give in negative 500 stars. Healing from a distance is not fair and is killing the gyms. If you allow people to heal from afar then allow players to battle from afar. FIX IT NOW YOU MONEY HUNGRY LOSERS. Update. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THEY ARE CHEATERS AND HACKERS ON THIS GAME AND THEY ONLY CARE FOR MONEY MONEY AND... MORE MONEY Full Review
Jonathan Gibbs Published date: December 11, 2017
So much potential! But some of the updates seem unnecessary... Weather doesn't take into account the people who live in the desert where it never has anything other then sunshine all year round! Also been waiting for trading and player battles for over a year! Full Review
Katherine Flaherty Published date: December 14, 2017
It's weird that one cannot capture pokemon on US military bases. In fact, the app only recently started working on the one closest to me when the PX finally received a Starbucks. Still, the pokestop doesn't quite work always, even when standing next to the stop. What is the government hiding from us? Our troops work hard and sacrifice a lot to protect our country, don't they deserve the same pokemon go experience as civilians? Full Review
Fierce Deity Parker Published date: December 12, 2017
Fix this game before you jump onto the next nostalgia money-train, Niantic. This game is still barebones and runs terribly compared to most other mobile games, even other AR ones or even Ingress. Now you're willing to disapoint tons of Harry Potter fans the same way? Shame none of that money can go into making your current apps any decent Full Review
Derrick Bates Published date: December 8, 2017
It's a fun game but has so many problems that have been issued forever that they refuse to fix like the connection issues with the Pogo Plus accessory. Doesn't connect 75% of the time and still no fix. Also issues of game crashing and overheating. But niantic knows people will continue to play because it's Pokemon so they make the game just playable enough to make them money Full Review
jgbuddy298 Published date: December 9, 2017
Gen 3 is finally here, and with it comes some neat changes like weather-related spawns and textures! The game also seems more stable after the past few updates, and raids seem to function better. Loving the game! Still some things that could be changed as always, but great work so far! Full Review
Leanna Forkner Published date: December 10, 2017
Love the app so much!! Would be great if there were a different verrity of pokemon in the area besides basic pidgey and rattata. Also more pokestops in the area would be grrrreat. Over all a very fun game :) update: Since update it takes a while for pokemon in app to load, errors out pokemon, game crashes more often, and less revives and potions from stops. Still play though. I think the weather twist is pretty sweet though. â¡â¡â¡â¡â¡ Full Review
Ruby Harrison Published date: December 14, 2017
Latest update has issues, GPS won't connect so shows me with no location. (my device GPS works perfectly in other apps) 14/Dec. An incredible and captivating game, promotes exercise. You don't need to understand the original pokemon games, it's pretty user friendly. Great for getting out and exploring your local city. Despite being really awesome it has plenty of teething issues, such as the servers being down often, and freezing just when I've caught a pokemon so have to reload the game and loose the pokemon (I've lost a few very rare pokemon that way). Overall I can't get enough of this! Full Review
raj manohar Published date: December 9, 2017
Game is very nice. But, last two updates were disappointed me. Bciz of this new update I was unable to access the gps, while I was turned on the location services. It was showing the error "GPS signal not found.(11)" on my Honor 6x mobile. Full Review

Hiya! I love pokemon go but I have two requests I'd love to share with you. My first favour was to see if you can add a way to trade pokemon with others. My aunt. Kim. Wanted to trade but had realised she couldn't so I hope that can be added eventually. My second favour is to have any buddy that a player chooses to ACTUALLY be beside them. I mean. I love the buddy choices but. I only see them in the profile. It is ok if you don't add these. But if you do I would be so delighted! Kind Regards - Amy Full Review
Jenae Carleton Published date: December 14, 2017
I loved this game originally but now when I try to logging in just keeps saying unable to verify, and I have uninstalled it and reinstalled it several times and even changed the app permissions so give it more access to see if that worked. I've already had to restart once and I don't want to do it again. But even if I was willing too I can't because I'm not getting an option to do that. Idk if this is a glitch or what but please fix it. I want to go poke hunting again! Full Review
Anthony Arellano Published date: December 14, 2017
Fun and addictive. My father and I enjoy hanging out and meeting new people in our town to do Legendary raids. We get over 15+ Legendary pokemon a month! Would love if we stopped getting EXTREME weather 6/7 days though lmao Full Review
Solus Emsu Published date: December 13, 2017
Today it is beautiful outside at 60 degrees, sunny, no clouds, and windy. I should be able to take advantage of this beautiful windy day. INSTEAD the app says "Extreme" weather which means Pokemon go into hiding. FIX THIS!!!! It seems like you guys only care if it affects California. Typical. Full Review

pokedude104 Published date: December 13, 2017
If I have anything less than a perfect connection the app will refuse to acknowledge that GPS is working properly despite google maps and other things that use GPS working fine from the same spot. Most of my city has less than perfect connection, its by no means bad but there are few spots you can hold a perfect connection. This also means playing anywhere inside is just never going to happen. Full Review

What the hell Niantic? Net Neutrality falls in the US and I immediately get a "switch to (carrier redacted)" notification ad from PokÃ©mon Go. Maybe coincidence, but terrible timing if so. Such a shame as I enjoyed the game. Too bad you have no principles. See if you ever get a red cent from me. Full Review
Brandon Ditterline Published date: December 9, 2017
Pokemon aren't everywhere like the games. They're only at certain spots and you have to live in a city to get them all mainly. You can't battle wild pokemon and all you do is throw a ball. Highly debating shelf life for this app until it's completely resolved. . . This is bs fr Full Review

Just lack of pokestop and gym in my location. Please give some pokestops and gyms in Assam, India We have just 5 6 pokestops and 3 gyms in the Capital city but I am from a rural( not fully) area and doesn't have a single pokestop or gym near. Just a single JIO SPONSORED pokestop is there which is about 60 Kms away from my area. Kindly please increase some pokestops and gyms or else open the submission portal for just the rural players only. Full Review
Epic Pikachu Published date: December 14, 2017
Since the bugs that caused issues last year when the app launched are now corrected, it's a great app and a joy to play. Unfortunately alot of people have long given up on the game but I highly recommend it given that the glitches and hacker issues have been resolved. And now generation 3 Hoenn region Pokemon are added so there are more Pokemon to collect. And new game mechanics make it easier to get back into the app if you quit playing. And new players will find it easier too. Full Review
Stoyan Ivanov Published date: December 14, 2017
Have been playing since a month after the initial release and even though I've neither been the biggest PokÃ©mon fan nor have I felt completely pleased with the experience in the first 6-9 months, the fact that I've stuck with the game constitutes the idea's and implementation's total quality. Of course there are bugs, of course there are times when it feels monotonous and the total time spent drops until the next big change. The important but for a 5 star game is the total direction and PokÃ©mon Go is here to stay. Well done Niantic for not failing with the legendary IP. Would have been a big waste. Full Review
