Your Neighbour Published date: August 12, 2017
Well it is a good game and all but there's no multiplayer no leader boards nothing like that. Also we were promised trading really early in the game and after a year we are still yet to have it! So I am at abit of a stand off where I can not decide if I like this game or not. It would definitely be a yes if there was trading but unfortunately there isn't so if they put trading in a would be a five star but for now a 4 star also when I do play it and there's a legendary raid because where I live almost no one plays it so could you make it so the amount of players there are affect the difficulty of the raid so like the cp and health of the Pokemon in the raid thank you that will be all Full Review

I have played this game once or twice before on my aunts phone but it didnt work all that great- still was entertaining. BUT I tried downloading it on my phone today and barely got past choosing my charizard. When it came to choosing a nickname I entered at least six different usernames and it kept telling me to try again over and over. Therefore I am kinda forced to uninstall. Full Review
Briana M Published date: August 3, 2017
It's ok. The GPS location sucks. I'll be sitting inside a pokestop and it will have me running all over the screen, and while that helps put miles on my eggs and my buddy, it doesn't help when I'm trying to catch Pokemon. It also freezes when I try to catch some. I've lost high CP or rare Pokemon that aren't in the area because of it. There's also still no variation of Pokemon that appear in your area. Full Review
John Nicolas PereZ Published date: August 1, 2017
I grew up playing pokemon since I was a kid and I think this is fairly good. Graphics wise, it's great. For gameplay, I dunno why a lot of players ask too much. No this and no that. I mean for me, niantic and nintendo is doing their best to improve it. Its a like a slow but steady. Unlike games that booms fast also whitles fast. Sorry for the long comment. Again, thanks nintendo and niantic. Will be waiting for the trade system and battle system. :) Full Review
Daniel Ngo Published date: August 14, 2017
Hello all. I would like to thank you for creating this game. It is very fun. I especially enjoy playing it with my nephew. I would like a better chance to get legendaries, it's really hard when I come accord one with no help of capturing it in the raid. Also I do not have the luxury of being able to travel for certain pokemon. Please find a way to make it more exciting with more chances to catch them all. Thank you. Full Review
Siri Pulli Published date: August 6, 2017
The game is amazing and addicting. I actually like that there's legendary Pokemons as well now (I have caught 8 of them). But still the game has its flaws. Sometimes during the raids the game crashes and I have to open it again. Sometimes it doesn't even want to open the app. Please fix this. I have seen that people have lost their raid passes because of this. GPS location is buggy as well. My avatar runs to a different location where I'm instead. Add something new for it as well because it clearly needs new ideas like trading and challenging other players for a duel. Maybe some stories would be great and I kinda wish Team Rocket to appear too. Full Review
SAMUEL SPELL Published date: August 7, 2017
Do to the raids the gsme is know longer interesting or fun . Do to some of us do not have lot people to help beat the raid bosses. And not all of are able travel around the world to catch pokemon. It was more fun walk around and catching them . So being that the raids to me aren't fun to me . This ends my pokemon quest goodbye pokemon go it was fun while it lasted Full Review
Noah Piskoty Published date: August 4, 2017
Great game, lots of fun and only slightly addicting, lol. Though they could make it better, by making it like the traditional games. Where you get to battle other trainers to get your PokÃ©mon xp and level them up. The whole having to catch the same pokemon over and over to get candies to level them up, seems counter productive to me. Though over all one of the best games I've ever played on my phone. Would be alot better if you could battle wild pokemon to gain xp and level yours up as well, like the old games! Full Review
Floris van Lent Published date: August 2, 2017
I like cathing them all, figuring out the best movesets and counters for raids and meeting new people through this game. However, I can't believe how poorly Niantic handles communication and testing of their game. Almost every update introduces new bugs that seem to stem from not using unit tests or professional testers in their team at all. They made an impossible amount of money so they should really hire people for PR and code quality in my opinion. Full Review
Tommy Gulumian Published date: August 11, 2017
Really addictive fun game to play with friends. I've been playing for so long and it's still refreshing to see a new or high leveled pokemon! Graphics are good and the game never runs out of things to do! The only issue is where you live. City folk get resources 15x faster than me in the suburbs and pokemon or easier to get to. Gyms are fun and so are raids. I'm glad this kind of game exists Full Review

This saved my marriage! I swear if I hadn't shown this to my wife, she would've left me in an instant. But thanks to this lovely app, our love has been restored. In fact, it even increased our lovemaking in bed. My wife had already written the divorce papers and had her boyfriend she was cheating on me in her getaway red Subaru waiting to fly to her honeymoon. But thanks to you guys, all that stopped! Now me and my wife can have a good marriage by walking around the road, holding up our phones, trying not to get hit by cars. Thank you Niantic Inc. Full Review
Published date: August 14, 2017
I really like the gameplay and the encouragement of multiplayer through raids being too hard to do on your own. My only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that I want to listen to my own music. When I open the app, it lowers the volume of my music, forcing me to turn it up to max. Any time I exit the app though, my ears are ripped apart because the volume increases to normal with that fix, five stars easily. Full Review
Dustin Reznichek Published date: August 5, 2017
The game is improving in a positive way, however it is becoming very much more apparent that the creators care more about making money off the app then anything. Rarely receive coins for having gym defenders even tho i haven't reached the max for that day and i can't even report it as an issue. Typical. You're that most downloaded app out there, give back to the players already. Full Review
Brittany Love Published date: August 11, 2017
Okay, it's been a while since I posted my review, and while some of my opinions have changed, many have not. The gameplay is addictive, but the game is still hard on the battery. Gps tracking is better, but Many of the areas that I am in are pretty much "dead zones" to the game. Including where I work. The go plus isn't much of a help, as it's not an actual pedometer, so people who can't, for one reason or another, go outside And explore, cannot play this game without cheating. Make the next go plus a pedometer, or even make connectivity to fitbit possible for a 5 star review. Full Review
Marvin Locke Published date: July 31, 2017
Great game overall, but most of the pokestops I visit just say "Try again", no matter how many times I try to activate them. Also, sometimes PokÃ©mon that the nearby tab says are at a pokestop, aren't at the pokestop or anywhere near it, which I find really annoying. The most important issue to me is the fact that if your not in a town, there are absolutely no PokÃ©mon to be seen which goes against everything that is PokÃ©mon, because in PokÃ©mon, the PokÃ©mon were always found in the wild, where wild creatures live. If PokÃ©mon were everywhere and not just in towns and cities, this would definitely be my favorite app on the app store. Full Review
Jonathan Moore Published date: July 31, 2017
Honestly, this game just about died around April. I had almost given up until i heard rumors of legendary Pokemon. I am glad i stayed because the new gym system is better for taking, the remote berry feeding is cool too. It is more engaging for my lower level gf to play with me now as we can take things together a lot easier now. My only complaint is that the coin limit ve put back to 100 a day. Other than that, the raid system is great! Full Review
LUNO DRA Published date: August 1, 2017
How is that hard to capture legendaries? Giving the fact that most of us live in small towns, its hard already to gather 10-15 people, after that defeating it and capturing its even harder... If it was easier and if you needed less people I might be using 3-5 premium passes per day and maybe buying pokecoins, everyone would. Think smart. Full Review
John Koonce Published date: August 5, 2017
Pokemon Go is a good game with a few technical problems. Catching Pokemon "in real life" is exciting especially when you find a rare one. Battling gyms is fun but perhaps a bit too simple. Unfortunately the game is very prone to crashes and bugs and drains your battery very quickly. Overall if you like Pokemon this game can become more of a hobby than simply a game with all the getting out and about you'll be doing. Hopefully they keep improving the game over the next several years. Full Review
Noah Smith Published date: August 13, 2017
I love the variety between spaces, and it's an accurate map. Overall weird but new way to experience pokemon. I hope this gets greater from here! Edit 8/13/17: After playing for a year I can still say that I enjoy this game just as much. It has had its ups and downs as far as updates go. But the seasonal events were fun, this new gym rework was definitely a step in the right direction, and raid battles are super fun and have brought the community for this game closer than before. I looked forward to trading and PvP among other features to be added along the way! Full Review
Simon Malm Published date: August 8, 2017
The game is pretty good, but it is lacking in a few ways that i feel is crucial for pokemon games. The combat system is very poorly designed, I think they should have used the old turn-based system. It is to the point where i just dont care for battling at all. I also think events for a game like this is very important to keep players intrested. The new buddy pokemon feature is a nice improvement. Full Review
Cameron O'Quinn Published date: August 15, 2017
Well we're almost a year into the full release of the game so now I can offer a strong opinion on what I think of it. I've never until now seen a game involving Pokemon that did not include some form of trainer battles and PVP, I'm not talking about a sorry excuse for a gym. I'm talking about random Pokemon battles in the street, there is no Trading, there are no poke centers that I can see, there is so much missing from the game at feels like an empty shell of what they actually intended it to be. Full Review
Jeff Woodard Published date: August 1, 2017
I think that you give the people in Chicago the legandaries each time they get it every time and give the people in other cities a 2% catch rate even though everybody helped get them unlocked. Sorry bit I'm about to uninstall the game do to all the problems with the gyms as well. The game is going down hill fast in my opinion. Full Review
Elizabeth Teser Published date: August 8, 2017
Ok what is going on with you guys taking all my damb coins.. I dont buy anything. I am missing 100 coins right now and on the last big update i lost 360 coins. I love the game and will contuine to play but i really need my coins back. I play hard to get those and spend hours on this game.. Hope to hear from ya soon. Thanks Full Review
Jeanette Ferut Published date: August 11, 2017
It refuses to let me log in. It just keeps saying that it can't authenticate my information. Regardless of what account I use, I can't even start over. I can't use the pokemon club ID or google. I changed my OS twice and am now running marshmallow, I've cleared the data, uninstalled and reinstalled it, but nothing works. My device is definitely capable of running it, it certainly has the RAM and more than enough ROM space. My processor is fast enough. I don't really get whats wrong. Full Review
Josue Alvarez Published date: July 30, 2017
After one year of it's release, it has truly been an improvement both on the game & on the developers over at Niantic. Although it's still not perfect (far from it), the optimization & stability is a whole lot better. Still needs improvement on Niantic's Servers. Trading & Battling other players. And of course, more pokemon. Maybe it's worth coming back, but who knows. Definitely a step in the right direction. Full Review
vishal agrawal Published date: August 3, 2017
You can make this game wonderful. Pokemon is a topic on which a game can be awesome. Add some storylines to it. Make battles interesting. Make this game a social point to. This way this game is a way getting bored off. Catching pokemon can become interesting if u add feature of first fighting with it make it stun then catch it. Also in fight there should be chance wise fight like first mine turn to attack and then choose defense and then its opponent turn. Also not all famous places are pokestop only few are. If u want to make GAME FAMOUS AGAIN u have to make tremendous changes. Thank you Full Review
Saber Published date: August 4, 2017
caused phone to lag and overheat, severe battery depletion. will drop balls. freeze during raids and boot you out. will take your money and not give you coins. will take your raid pass let you play then freeze and boot you out; then acknowledges you used a raid pass and that your PokÃ©mon are fainted but not that your group just won. leaving you alone with a used pass fainted pokemon and no one to fight with. waste of money. constant "error" and "network error" even with latest update. Full Review
Tiffany Dutton Published date: August 14, 2017
With raids and legendary Pokemon introduced now, this game is going in the right direction. There are still many things we players want to see added to the game, but overall I'm happy with it. My only complaint is that I can't get my PoGo Plus to work anymore, it won't connect. Full Review
Shrey Biswas Published date: August 2, 2017
It's an amazing game. I don't get why everyone complains about it... Crashes are pretty rare... Niantic have done really well, and not just liked it with ads like other games. The release of Legendary PokÃ©mon showed how amazing this game is. People once again went back to the early days and worked together with strangers forming new bonds and getting new friends. Full Review
wes cronik Published date: August 3, 2017
I love pokemon been a fan all my life. The problem that i keep encountering is everytime i do a raid i get kicked when the raid pokemon is nearly beat and ive lost a articuno and a moltres due to this "error" and now when i use a raid pass i cant even get into the raid to battle it loads my pokemon and the raid one and says error and i get kicked to try and rejoin to get kicked again its frustrating Full Review
FireSpiderDC Published date: July 31, 2017
I love playing this game its fun and amazing. What I want to see in the future updates is more potions coming out from the Poke stop ( not sure I spelled that right or not) or have a pokemon Center because I participate in a lot of raid battles and Pokemon Gym Battles and its getting harder and harder to heal them all. It would be awesome to have both in the game but if only one of these changes comes in I am ok Full Review
Stevo Kaul Published date: July 31, 2017
Removing the only part of the game that was entertaining. I have a life outside of my phone and can't wander town aimlessly for hours hoping to stumble upon a creature the is supposedly nearby. But those achievement badges and that text! Wow nobody cares about that. The new badges just makes it more complicated to tell what rank it is. You had a good thing going. quit trying to improve on greatness, you'll only burn it to the ground. Fix the damage you've already caused and let people enjoy it. Full Review
Published date: August 1, 2017
I love this game and started to play it to and from work everyday. The only issue I have is with raid battles. Ever time I try to enter one there is always a network error and forces me to hard reset the game. When I do manage to enter , the battle constantly freezes also with network error. After all this if I manage to beat the raid boss, I am unable to attempt to catch it as game freezes and kicks me out. If this issue is sorted I'd give higher rating. Full Review
Herbert Chen Published date: August 4, 2017
Great, fun game for everybody. It keeps you in shape, chasing Pokemon, and going after those legendary raids. Also great with making new friends or other trainers out there. Looking forward to their next big event. P.s. Can you shift raids a little later, I see raids when I wake up; 6am eastern usa time, and ends 7pm, when I get off work. Full Review
Guadalupe Martinez Published date: August 6, 2017
It's an awesome game but whenever i open another app really quick it has to reopen the game. Also every time i try to do a lvl 2 raid it always says error doesn't even let me try to battle. Also you guys should try to make berries buyable but not right away like at a certain lvl. Still really great game. Full Review
jodie du plessis Published date: August 7, 2017
This app would really be perfect if they actually put pokestops and gyms in rural places like suburbs just outside cities or towns. Because I run out of pokeballs twice and have to wait awhole week before we go into town to visit a pokestop. And hell I've never even done a gym battle because our gym is in a place everyone just drives by you can't sit or stand there it be better if pokestops were fast food places or restaurants Full Review
Lily Yang Published date: July 31, 2017
What became a 3* mediocre game is now 1* due to being literally unplayable. I don't use the AR, but the update reset that to on and now it will not launch a capture menu without crashing. How do you have this game out for a whole year that is not only terribly optimized, but settings remain locked behind menus that stress your device to even reach. Full Review
micheal peljae Published date: July 31, 2017
Fix the gym under attack glitch. It sucks when you take a gym down with a group of 4 people and only 1 of us can put a pokemon in. The rest of us either have to try and force close the app or walk to another gym and then come back. Highly irritating. Fix it it's 5 stars Full Review
David Caitens Published date: August 1, 2017
Still after release no use of magnetometer or accelerometer so unable to use AR mode because my phone doesn't have a gyroscope :/. The game also because of lack of the above doesn't go to standby when in my pocket so doesn't track my walking correctly. Honestly developer get this sorted. I would like if they brought in type folders so PokÃ©mon are not just listed in one big page but in sub categories of type. Full Review
