About Pokémon GO

Developer Description

Trainers can now trade Pokémon with other Trainers nearby, earning a Candy Bonus for the Pokémon received. Join Trainers across the globe who are discovering Pokémon as they explore the world around them. Pokémon GO is the global gaming sensation that has been downloaded over 800 million times and named "Best Mobile Game" by The Game Developers Choice Awards and "Best App of the Year" by TechCrunch. Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Pikachu, and many other Pokémon have been discovered! Pokémon are out there, and you need to find them. As you walk around a neighborhood, your smartphone will vibrate when there’s a Pokémon nearby. Take aim and throw a Poké Ball… You’ll have to stay alert, or it might get away! Search far and wide for Pokémon and items Certain Pokémon appear near their native environment—look for Water-type Pokémon by lakes and oceans. Visit PokéStops and Gyms—found at interesting places like museums, art installations, historical markers, and monuments—to stock up on Poké Balls and helpful items.

  • Love this game, I think it can be even better if...

    I love this game it got my family motivated to get out there and get fit. My kids have acquired a healthy love for walking. Reading all these reviews I think there needs to be a platform where users can make suggestions. Obviously niantic can ignore the suggestions but they might get some really good ideas from it. I think they should also have a platform for support when the troubleshooting doesn’t solve the problem. For instance the app says it has a capability for family sharing... How do we do that??? My kids play with us but they don’t have their own devices I’d love to figure out how to use that! Also I think t would be a great added bonus to getting in a gym if you could collect items from the gym regardless of where you are (similar to the option where you can feed your Pokémon from far away)and it would give ppl who are far away from any gyms or stops a chance to collect items at a rate those of us who are near them can collect them. It would also motivate ppl more to get in those gyms or get in more gyms. Additionally in the areas where there are less stops you could make more of them gyms to provide more access to players in that area. Of course you could always limit the benefit when collecting from afar like you do with feeding Pokémon maybe make it collectible only every ten minutes or something... Anyways love the game not complaining just making suggestions ;)
  • Great game but more content plz

    By 5 STAR!!!!!!!!<3
    I love the game and its easy to use interface but I and all of my friends at school agree that your amazing game lacks some necissary content to be a truly great game. I belive you should add trading pokemon above all else and along with that casual battles with near by players. Now for my personal favorite addition is that some people have a daily struggle with living in a small town like mine where there is literaly 1 pokestop in all of town and you never go near it so that results in having a very limited supply of poke balls which is by far the most important item in the game because without them you cant catch anything which results in the lack of xp which means you cant level up. You cant get good cp pokemon (much less pokemon at all) which means no gyms or raids. To combat this major issue I propose you and some sort of daily spin or add more pokestops and gyms. Now I doubt you (the devs) will see this much less read it all but if you do I greatly appreciate it. Thank you as I hope this may help bring life back into this once amazing and well played game. P.S. ( I am saying this not only to make this game more fun for me but all of the friends I play this game with are compaining about a few of these issues and I would like to continue playing the game with the game with them as this is the only game I play and I fear they may quit playing if you do not add content. )
  • Great Game BUT........

    By canine baker
    This is a wonderful game, great to get people out and moving I definitely recommend it for people who live in populated areas and towns BUT if you live in the rural areas and the country sides of this country where service is spotty and where they placed most all the stops and gyms there is NO SERVICE then playing this game is almost worthless. As a player moving from the city to the country it almost leaves me no choice but to quit or almost forget about the game, sad because I’m a paying player. I read how Niantic was working hard at trying to come up with a resolution for RURAL players but every update and addition to the game benefits populated players. Even trying to contact help support and Niantic is a waste of time, all you will get is a return email where someone will just copy and paste the same answers over and over again, if you cared to do something about this critical issue then maybe taking a moment and conversing with the rural players may help. I hate to have to leave this game but Niantic does not seem to care if they lose their rural players and that is so sad as if you maybe took the time to work with rural players the issue could be resolved, I say to the populated players get out and have an awesome time playing this game and don’t complain about adding a couple bucks to the game it is a lot cheaper then a night out to the movies and a lot more fun with the family! Signed The forgotten rural players!
  • I’m always outside, thanks Niantic!

    I am loving all of the events and things we have to look forward to. Community days were a great idea. Friends and trading were wonderful updates that added a lot to the game, though I wish that there was an option to toggle off the exact location and map directions in the gift you send people. Even better if you could turn on/off per friend level or even individual friends as well as an all on/off. Also, if you could create a kind of lure for gyms where raids are happening, and nearby players could see that and head over because they know people are there to raid. Lure could last 5-10min so people can wait for it to run out (and if they don’t want to wait, they don’t use the lure). And nearby players can view the raid and leave like a thumbs up or thumbs down so others know someone is on their way. The GO community has really come together and made raid planning possible in a lot of places, but this would be more inclusive to those that haven’t joined their local community or that live rurally and have a hard time getting enough people. These are just suggestions for improvements to an already amazing game that I am pretty happy with, Pokémon GO has come a long way since those first several months of release where I always seemed to be annoyed at Niantic. So, well done :)
  • Rural players matter too!!

    I love this game and play everyday but some recent changes are really hurting rural players. I live in a town of >1500 people and we have a Pokémon base of maybe 50 players around town, many of us having full time jobs, kids, or school or any combination of the 3. Sometimes it gets really difficult to get a enough players together for raids especially legendary raids that require a group of 7-8 or more because most of the players in rural areas like this aren’t much higher level than 25.. even some of the most active players are still only 30-33. Now you’ve changed the raid timers down to 45 there will be even less raids happening in my area. Most of the raids we were able to complete have been in the last 10-15 minutes of the 1 hour raids. Also the raid boss switch is pretty lame in my opinion the level 4s aren’t even worth while anymore at least before every once in a while you could get a snorlax or t-tar. Now the best thing is golem and what avid players don’t already have an army of them from fighting the legendary birds? Sableye and porygon are the only decent changes but now there is nothing with the strength of alakazam or machamp that is worth while for tier 3 and lower. Your changes have been for the worse and you are just making your fan base angrier with these useless changes when you should be focused on giving us thing we all want like trading, pvp, mew, and the rest of gen 2!!
  • Good but could be better

    I’ve been playing almost since the beginning and am a daily player. Love the research tasks. I do however think niantic is a bit greedy. Let me start off by saying I buy coins at least once a month if not more during special events. With that said can you tell me why it takes me five balls to catch a 112 weedle? I’m level 38. I should catch them with the first ball. I don’t mind it head butting the ball away but it should not break free when I catch it at my level. What’s the point of golden raspberries or regular for that matter when they do nothing? Why am I 3 for 11 on latios raid? I throw great curveballs every time. I should have better odds at my level. What’s the point of the levels if you are not benefiting any where in the game? Just disappointed. Feel some thought should go in to how you do when catching either wild or raid bosses based on level otherwise it’s all meaningless. Don’t make me waste balls on crappy or low xp rats, it’s not challenging, it’s annoying. That’s why people quit or take breaks. Lures and incense are completely useless. Don’t do jack. Stop putting them in special boxes. Also sick of same ones everyday. The only time you mix it up is during special events. It’s just lazy computer script writing. Otherwise the game is fun and worth trying whether your a fan of the series or not. But have to give three stars because you work really hard to level up for NOTHING.
  • After a lot of work...

    I got through the bad things about this app (Making an account took forever and I got stuck on loading) I have enjoyed the good stuff. I am on a roadtrip and as such I have been able to sit down, relax, then get exercising because the game has plenty of Poké Stops in cities, suburban areas have schools as Poké Stops sometimes, and basically, as long as you are near a Poké Stop you can enjoy this app to the fullest. Partly Cloudy weather has lead to me being able to catch so many different Pokémon and within a few minutes of playing I caught an Eevee and I love my Water Pokemon that I caught so far (Water is my favorite type) and I have enjoyed being able to play this game that has encouraged me to Pokémon GO outside and get exercise! At first the app seems blank, sure, but then you walk around and find a group of Plusle, Minun, Geodude, and so many more. And thankfully catching one doesn’t scare all the others away. I haven’t caught Pikachu, one of my favorite Pokémon, but on this road-trip I feel like I am destined to find one. I don’t care if I have to walk around the campground until 10:00 At Night. I will do what all my years of playing Pokémon has taught me. I will tell myself this everytime I feel tired and there is a nearby Poké Stop. Gotta Catch ‘em All! But seriously. Don’t put yourself in danger playing this app. Even if that shiny Magikarp (The King of Carp!) is right there. Don’t drown for it.
  • A really good game but some disappointments

    By SUPER SANICCCCC MLG
    Pokémon GO is a really good game. I like the fact that the game makes you go outside to catch Pokémon. The game makes you really excited about what you are going to catch next... but there are a few thing I want to talk about, like regional Pokémon. I think that you guys at Niantic should think of something to people is the USA can catch Pokémon like mr. mine and let the people in England catch Tauros with out needing to fly there just to catch ONE Pokémon. Another thing is the Field Research. I like it a lot and when you finish it and get the “Mystery Pokémon” you either get Moltres, Zapdose, or Articuno. But when you finish it a second time around, you get the same legendary Pokémon. I think that every time you get the field research mystery encounter should be a different bird Pokémon. And after you get all the three legendary bird Pokémon, It would give you The legendary Pokémon Mewtwo, then onto the GEN two legendary Pokémon, then to the GEN three Pokémon etc, etc. I think this would be a good idea for the people who missed out on the special raids like for Mewtwo and the other Legendary Pokémon. Please make this an update because I’m only a 12-year-old boy who has been in Pokémon GO since the beginning and the only 2 legendary Pokémon I have are Entei and Moltres, which I got from the Field Research. Thank you.
  • Love this game so much, but some flaws cause it to be so frustrating

    By Jaclynlou
    There have been a few times where I’ve been in a very large raid group (10-20 people) and a few of us will get kicked out in the middle of the battle and we won’t be allowed back in (even when there’s time left on the clock) to catch the Pokemon. There have been times where after this glitch happens, I will still have my raid pass, but all of my Pokemon will be injured or knocked out. There are also times where I have lost my raid pass in this glitch and it causes me to have to buy another one on the spot. It’s very frustrating and embarrassing to commute far out to meet up with a raid group, only to have the game glitch out on me. I’ve been playing this game since the day it came out and glitches like this cause me to get very discouraged and flustered. That being said, I love this game so much; it truly makes my long walk into work better and more fun, AND it encourages me to go out for walks during my lunch break. I would say that it has been a very positive influence on my life and some of my friends lives. It makes my day more exciting, and it helps me feel a level of nostalgia considering I played all of the Pokemon games growing up. I hope this game is up and running forever, I just wish that some of the gym issues would get cleaned up a bit :)
  • Love it but....

    I’m gonna keep this short and sweet I’ve recently picked up Pokémon go again after about 7 months of not playing this game I once was obsessed with now I can say that it definitely has grown in a lot of ways but still things need to be changed starting with people in rural areas have a tough time really playing this game because of the lack of poke stops and variety of Pokémon given to them. I myself live in the Suburbs and also once lived in the city and FYI it’s such a drastic difference in terms of pokestops and Pokemon in general the cities are obviously flooded with both while the suburbs yet not completely empty still lacks the ability to grow within this game, but back to my point I have friends who love this game who live in much more rural areas and they just can’t really grow or have much fun with this wonderful game and they become extremely frustrated with it because they really must travel such a distance to be able to play this game it was obviously meant to be played with gym battles galore, pokestop madness and obviously new Pokédex entries. So I conclude this with Niantic you guys have really made this game fun again but please show more of a distribution of Pokémon, gyms, and pokestops to all your players across the country because I want this game to do better then it has ever been. P.s. sorry for the lack of punctuation
