You've upped your security and changed your program to combat trackers and radars when the simplest thing to do would be to create your own! Even if it had a small price tag I'm sure people would still buy it if it was accurate and you could search for the pokemon missing from your Pokedex or the ones you need candies for. Or an alert when something you'd ticked spawned. Sightings are good but not specific. I'm sure it would be huge if you did your own and would keep gamers interested. Full Review

When this game came out, I played it nonstop. I was stationed in Texas and it was fine minus the new game bugs. Now I'm stationed in Okinawa, Japan and it does not work on my base while it worked perfectly fine on my previous one. I now have to go to certain places on the island to actually play the game. If possible can we give easier access to us overseas troops? On my previous base, there were several monuments that were turned into gyms and the like so it's doable. Full Review

I am in level 25 and have registered 237 pokemon in my pokedex. I have been playing the game since 10/01/2017.The legendary beasts are awesome. I have caught RAIKOU and SUICUNE and ENTEI . Only a few requests to Niantic.... 1. Please make the legendary bird raids reappear in Pokemon Go . 2. Please make MEWTWO raids more widespread around the world. 3.Please release MEW, HO-OH and CELEBI raids , I am a great fan of HO-OH. THANKS TO NIANTIC FOR RELEASING GEN 3 IN POKEMON GO Full Review
Kylan Rider Published date: October 22, 2017
I wish it wasn't so hard to catch Pokemon in my neighborhood, there's never any around!!! I've been playing since the game started running in 2016 properly since the first few months Niantic couldn't allow so many people to play at once, and the games been so slow for me since I can't catch anything. I know this won't even make a difference but at least maybe someone can give me some advice to make the game more enjoyable. Thanks alot. Great game!!! Lots of potential! Full Review
John Published date: October 19, 2017
It was good, then it got bad, now it's pretty good again. The best part about it is Niantic are actually making an effort now to make the game better. Regular events make it fun to keep playing. Some sore points that haven't been addressed since launch - trading Pokemon, and not being able to complete the Pokedex without literally flying around the world or cheating. But it's getting better. Full Review
Dan Marcadet Published date: October 18, 2017
By all means the game is great... When it works. Started playing again over the last week, in four days I've managed to get to level 16, connection to your server has been great especially over those first few days. Yesterday and today however my game will only work if I'm connected to my WiFi and instantly bugs out or loses connection to your servers the second I walk out the door. Didn't have any problems with this game until the rescent update. Please sort it out. Full Review
Cyrus Shade Published date: October 21, 2017
This game is only really for people who live in heavily populated areas. If you live in an area of less than tens of thousands of people there's really no point to playing this game. You will not succeed in raids due a lack of participants, there are no longer rare Pokemon to find outside major cities, and for some reason whatever your so privileged to find is only getting harder to catch with each update. Full Review
Pandis Pandus Published date: October 17, 2017
It's a great game, but really? Fix the servers. Me and my friend planned one day PÃ³kemon GO, I had to watch him collecting all the stuffs. And no, there is nothing wrong with my network or phone. Every other apps works just fine... Full Review
Yaseen Mustapha Published date: October 18, 2017
The game has come very far and finally feels like it's out of beta. The gym rework and bug fixes make it much more enjoyable. Although the PokÃ©coins system doesn't seem thought out well, other than that, the release of Gen III and trading/battling friends is all that's needed to keep people playing. Full Review
Himan Panda Published date: October 18, 2017
Want more improved and a joystick PokÃ©mon game because it was caused for 3 accidents in India. ..want a joystick game soon we all...love PokÃ©mon. ..ð or give minimum 2 pokÃ©stop in village area for playsers from those area dont had to go 80 km at city to get items and pokÃ©boll and eggs... give pokÃ©stop in every station and police station and a raid spot on the bank or high school ... Full Review
Virginia Orr Published date: October 19, 2017
Very addicting especially if you're a long-time Pokemon fan. The recent gym overhaul has made the game much more accessible to new or less hard-core players. The game gets buggy for a bit after updates but I haven't had any major issues in a long time. Full Review
Oliver Gaden Published date: October 22, 2017
my username is Ogado21 im lvl 32 and have registered 241 pokÃ©mon in the pokedex. I play with my dad whose username is gadothegreat we love the game and play it nearley every day. One thing is that the game is laggy and glitchy please fix this problem. BEFORE DOWNLOADING MAKE SURE YOU CAN TAKE BEING KICKED OUT OF RAIDS AND BATTLES. Niantic should bring in trading so me my dad and freinds from school can trade along with freinds we make via pokÃ©mon GO. Full Review
Bradford Neu Published date: October 20, 2017
They are adding unneeded features at this time without fixing issues in the app. With a broken tracking system, removing access for third party trackers is the most frustrating approach. Third party systems should be a sign that you have done something right that people want to make something else to enhance their experiences. Full Review
Sarah Nixon Published date: October 20, 2017
The whole tracking system in the game has been removed by Niantic, with little communication as to what's going on. Without the step indicator, the game has become less of a hunt down Pokemon game and more of a wander around aimlessly and hope you find something game. You can't remove a key feature, offer little to no explanation as to why and expect players to be alright with it. I like the game but this is a huge game breaker and I am not going to give Pokemon Go a positive review it doesn't deserve. Full Review
Published date: October 20, 2017
This game is a waste. I was locked out of my first account and now because of how the log in is set up I can't log back in to my second account on my new phone. After spending hundreds of dollars, this game obviously does not want any more of my money or my time. Don't waste your time. Full Review
daniel morano Published date: October 17, 2017
Fun to play. Things are getting better for this app. A note for improving would be , if Pikachu wasn't the only Pokemon who got something different like a hat, during special events. If you have time to kill and don't care about just throwing pokeballs at Pokemon, or gym battles, give it a try Full Review
Caroline BooksInTheWild Published date: October 22, 2017
It a fun game! But... It glitches a lot and disconnected a lot! And the raids are to hard cause not much people so you can't beat them. And the should be spawns and pokestops and gyms. And maybe,like draconius go, there could be a new building! Like a one that takes you to a new world with new pokemon maybe?!? Full Review
Arun Shukla Published date: October 21, 2017
Since after halloween event i not getting any spooky pokemon. Everything in game is working fine only third generation pokemons are not appearing in my game. Me and my friends are playing at the same place he got 5 spooky pokemons from gen3 and i didnt get even single. It was not showing in nearby not on near pokestops. Dont know what problem it is. I got nothing fron 3rd gen seems like halloween update is not working on my id. Please help me Niantic. i love this game a lot. :( Full Review
Published date: October 19, 2017
It's really fun when you start thr game abd try to figure everything out, but now it seems like there is nothing new to do. Catch pokemon and fight in gyms and raids... and that's pretty much it. I would be much more excited to play the game if there would be 1 on 1 fights, breeding and/or trading between players... but hey, with the halloween event coming up, I'm not gonna spit on the new pokemon! Itll give us something else to do while waiting for the otger features! Full Review
Adam Leist Published date: October 21, 2017
Now a pay to win game. You have to spend money on raid passes so you have gold berries to defend gyms. Either drop the gym holding limit to 5 gyms or take away gold berries at gyms to balance the game. Or continue to always cut off 2/3rds of your players by keeping them out of gyms. Full Review
Jared Jones Published date: October 20, 2017
I love this game, I've been playing since 7/6/16. Through all the glitches, hiccups and crashes, but today Im feeling really let down. As soon as gen 3 dropped I was excited as any one, but as everyone around me is catching. Nothing is popping up on my screen I've got the update the new load screen, my buddy walking is cut in half double candy and everything but no new pokemon even when i cam see them on my friends screen right next to me.... PLEASE look into this. Full Review
kishore kumar Published date: October 19, 2017
In starting,I can't catch any Pokemon and all the Pokemon is in one place and I cannot move it. So please fix it soon niantic company. So many errors in new update.So do it sooner.ð¥ðð Thanks.remove the captcha and so I cannot enter even though I put it correctly. Full Review
Michelle Tin Published date: October 17, 2017
"#1 Top Grossing Adventure." This game is a nightmare for people with gambling problems. Too many garbage pokemon, especially garbage pokemon that are hard to catch. But the stupid concept of stardust makes you waste all your pokeballs on said GARBAGE pokemon and tricks you into spending money on more if you don't have the luxury of being able to walk around all day. Enjoy getting addicted to wasting your money. Full Review
Jenny Lane Published date: October 18, 2017
Didn't wanna get into it when it first came out... And now I'm walking through town at 2am, weapon in one hand, phone in the other because I LITERALLY CANNOT STOP. D@MN YOU POKEMON GOOOO Full Review
chay sm Published date: October 16, 2017
Beware, seems like they are violating our privacy to chk what apps we installed on our phone. App needs to be forced stop after exit. Kids and me share phones but they don't use poke genie unlike me but all of us got warning. Up yours, Niantic ð¡ Full Review
Ashley Smejkal Published date: October 19, 2017
Look I use a Mock GPS app to protect myself and my kids and now this stupid app is telling me I have to unistall the app in order to play pokemon go. I dont use the app to play pokemon go. So guess no need for me to keep my pokemon go account. Been using this mock app before i ever got pokemon go. Been fun, but im not risking safety for a damn game. Anybody want my go account? Its a level 30 message me X Full Review
Stacey Rae Published date: October 20, 2017
This update is pointless. Gen 3 has no business being out yet. You never updated anything for people in rural areas. We get totally shafted in terms of Pokemon. I have had the app since basically the start. I went on vacation LAST WEEK and saw a Voltorb FOR THE FIRST TIME. I am so fed up. It's BS. Full Review
Alvin Tam Published date: October 22, 2017
It had so much potential. No battle system outside of gym battles. Took away the third party map radar so it's walking around blindly until you find the pokemon ypu are looking for. Disappointed in how it came out Full Review
Goodygirl Published date: October 21, 2017
Everything in the game keeps getting dragged out. It's really frustrating only having access to 5 gen 3 pokemon and not all of them. There is only so much you can currently do in the game and the game will very quickly die down again until all of gen 3 releases. Please try to implement more into the game. It sucks waiting around for months with very little rewards Full Review
Published date: October 21, 2017
Too much lag, and for some reason a legendary pokemon runs away from me even though i have premier balls left. SUPER FRUSTRATING. Fix this glitch plz and not lag when catching a raid boss plz. And why do we have the limit of 50 Pokecoins per day. Why not more?? Full Review
Josh Mueller Published date: October 16, 2017
Gave it 5 "*" 's before. Now, Pokemon go deserves 1 "*" from my view. Too many Errors especially after a year of Avidly playing and giving Niantic a chance to fix them. #1 :"Network" & "Network Errors" Suck! I spend 30 mins reconnecting and attempting to with trying to figure out how to connect again...gets annoying! I am starting to loose interest in Pokemon Go. However, I believe in everything else. It's helped myself get out of isolation quite a bit and manage my depression better! Full Review
melissa fording Published date: October 22, 2017
From when the game was first launched in 2016 up to now, I've given enough $$$ in a few hundred to this crappy "buy your FAT CHANCES" of a game. My friends have better luck than I do while they have spent far less $ than I have. Niantic, I have tried more than I should have to get better luck, and therefore it is final that I am THROUGH with your game. Full Review
Ben Stoney Published date: October 20, 2017
Played since day one now for the last few weeks I've been unable to due to the game unable to find gps. I have reported the issue and still no fix. I have the latest Samsung s8 so should be no reason for my device to be an issue. Maybe by leaving this review you might actually do something about it Full Review
Sharpshooter0221 Published date: October 20, 2017
I think the game is pretty good, pokÃ©mon has been my childhood and when i got my new phone i didnt hesitate to download it. But ive been having problems with the internet connection when i leave my house. Could you please get this fixed so i can have another good reason to leave my house? Full Review
Notmeh Buddy Published date: October 18, 2017
Very buggy. Bad customer support. Player community has to figure out every issue on their own and make enough noise until Niantic actually acknowledges a problem before anything ever gets fixed. Cheaters are not punished, so the game is unfair for real players. Full Review
Stefan Bakken Published date: October 17, 2017
Uses a LOT of data. Raids end too early for people who work. No communication system at all to organize a raid. Not enough players to raid. PTC is CONSTANTLY down. HUGE battery drain; very warm phone. Very few Pokestops in my area, always running out of Pokeballs. Sightings constantly dissapperaring, Pokemon fleeing. Safetynet sucks. Little variety in Pokemon. Big team imbalance. Full Review
Ice Devil Slayer Published date: October 18, 2017
Some suggestions for a better Pokemon Go. 1. Some pokestops to be changed into in-game shop (pokemart with AR mode) where only certain items not sold in the current in-game shop can be bought there. 2. Adjust the gym system or introduce a whole new system where pokemon can be TRAINED (the current gym system is nice too). 3. Introduce a simple yet engaging campaign/story mode (it is a very simple idea to keep trainers keep playing). 4. Give our team leaders greater purpose of existence other than apprasing our pokemons. 5. Introduce new mechanics where teams can compete in different ways other than taking down gyms. 6. Seasonal swap (migration) of regional exclusive pokemons. 7. Seasonal swap of raid bosses or expand the raid bosses roster. 8. Give balance of pokestops and gyms between cities and rural areas (not everyone are Ash Ketchum that travel all days, not having to work). 9. Do somthing about battery and data consumption. 10. Breeding system 11. Allow trainer to form parties of pokemons for easier pre-raid battle and before gym battle ** Test any new updates before release to public. Full Review

PokemonGo Plus doesn't connect very consistently or stay connected if you loose data or net even for split second takes forever to reconnect if it does at all. None of the updates or bug fixes have fixed the issue! Full Review
Albert Z Published date: October 21, 2017
This game is getting worse and worse each time it has an "upgrade". It is now over run with raid battles. Much of them need so many people to join that they are pretty much unbeatable. Now only 2 items are given at pokestops. (Basically almost half of what used to be given, 3 to 4). Any more and it's time to let the game go. Full Review
Arcanith Published date: October 18, 2017
Game is great to leave the house with a friend or two, have a chat, take a gym and just have a nice day. I love the new gym system because now it rewards players for trying and gives coins for the time your pokemon stayed there. The old system was a bit punishing, too many pokemon and rarely a team would loose control, making it hard for casual players to get the feel of progression, now everybody wins coins for as long as you manage to put a pokemon in a gym Full Review
