I Love It 5/5
It is a great game and unanticipated can't do anything about you luck, the eggs you get or the people who use GPS hacks so people should stop complaining
Increase the pokemon population 3/5
Instead of just making the pokemon show up in cities or around attraction sites, you should make it to where they will show up everywhere. That way where ever you are outside, you will find them. Some of us can't always go to town just get pokemon. It would be easier and way better if they would be through the woods, near ponds, etc. Like it is on the games. It would make the game much much better. Please consider.
What's with the crazy battery drain?!? 2/5
I have been using this app since it first came out. After the latest update my battery drains so fast it's almost impossible to play anymore! I have the iPhone 7 with the latest version iOS as well as the app, turn off all other apps, kill wifi & Bluetooth, and darken the screen and the battery gets nerfed right before my eyes. Same thing is happening on my fiancée's phone and we use different carriers (ATT & Verizon) so it's not that either. Whatever it is causing this battery drain need to be fixed!!!
Used To love this game 2/5
I really used to like this game. It's just becoming not as realistic as when it first came out. I also think there should be more updates. Personally I think there would be more updates. When I say updates I mean big updates to keep the app in good shape. Trading. There should be trading centers, out even be able to trade with the people in a 100 Meter radius. Also there should be a lot more Pokémon that are involved in the game. I've noticed that the evolution of certain Pokémon are not complete. Some have only the second evolution. The game is just not catching enough people's attention. But overall it is a good game.
Still has places to improve 4/5
I wish you could sync your app with other fitness apps so you can have a fitness tracker app open and use that to sync your steps to your Pokémon go app. That way I can track my steps while running. All in all I love playing this game. Keeps me active.
Great game! Here is an idea. 5/5
This game is great. I have been playing ever since it came out, and I have enjoyed it. While there are a few issues, I understand how large of a feat it is to fix those on a game this large-scale. It is a really fun game overall!
I do have an idea I would like to propose: could you possibly add a feature into the game like a Candy Store. A place in which you could go trade say 150 Pidgey candies for one Dragonite candy? Obviously that would take a while to code for, but I think it would enhance the game and deviate a little from the "hand-held Pokémon game" mold. That would be a way to make it possible for people who do not see a lot of the more rare Pokémon still be able to evolve them without catching them 50 times.
Thank you for all of the cool features in your game!!
Good but some issues 4/5
Ok so first I think the walking tracker needs to be fixed like maybe it should link to your health app and go by your steps from that. Because I went almost a mile and on my egg it only showed that I walked like .2 km. That is insane it's a lot of effort for nothing. And I'm sick of all the 5km eggs I get but that's just me. Cause I can't even get the walking tracking to work so they take forever to hatch and my egg bag is always full, ugh. But still I do like some of the new Pokémon and I'd also like more clothes to customize my trainer. Like I can't believe there wasn't a poke egg beanie for the waster event. Lol or a water t shirt for the water event.
Absolute trash 1/5
By Slapy bird
I don't need to explain.
By Mega GENGAR 12537
Best game I've ever played despite the new update
FIX THE BUGS!!!!!
First, the gyms are sometimes glitchy when you're using data. I have network errors during battles and in between Pokémon. Other than this issue, the app isn't terrible. Just a headache at times.
Second, it would be nice to have a push notification reminder telling you when to collect your coins and stardust from PokéGyms. Also, a push notification alerting you that a Pokémon has been knocked out of a gym. Additionally, with more Pokémon in gyms, sometimes it's difficult to remember where your Pokémon are. Maybe a feature telling trainers what gym their Pokémon are in would be helpful.
More things 5/5
Put more rare Pokémon in eggs and you have a option to get a evolution or a godly poke stop and add gen 3 in June 18
Nickname wrongfully reset 1/5
By Lucifer’s Angel
My nickname was wrongfully and unfairly reset due to it being offensive. Great. But I can't even change it. Nice to see you guys really care about your players.
Unavailable to authenticate? 3/5
By Joseph Russell
Im hoping that niantic is fixing the problem where most users are blocked from playing Pokémon go, if not 😡
Love it 5/5
You should 5/5
Make it so your buddy walks around with you and so that you can see other Pokémoners and their buddies
Need to add trading with players 3/5
It's ok but I want to trade a Pokémon with my friend but I can't please add that
Would give zero stars 1/5
I downloaded this to play with my girls. However, I can't get past trying to create an Account. I did the trainer thing and still can't get to where you can look for and catch anything. Not happy at all. There's no where on the site where you can get support and help with issues. What's the point if the app if it's. it going to work.
Wouldn't recommend—at the moment 2/5
In short, it's just lacking in general. Gameplay is simple, but too much so, and many elements are absurd &/or contrary to previous games (read: battling (ugh), Candies, and Stardust, among others). Very grindy, but without the connection one builds with a Pokémon by spending hours with them training in other games. As soon as a bigger number comes in, the old one's off to Willow, and the only way to level or evolve them is to catch more of them, to inevitably be thrown out. On the technical side, distance tracking is bad. Lag causes slingshotting, making the game think I'm in a car even if I'm sitting still. Riding a bike is too fast for the game's liking, another discrepancy with the other games. Data & battery usage are pretty atrocious, too. No trading, no locations aside from 'stops and Gyms, no battle strategy, no Poké tracking (and no love for rural players).
Edit: Not really any better than it was the first time around, and in some ways it's actually worse. New Poké tracking is bad — in the city, it literally tells you where to walk, and in the country, it gives you nothing. Few things are more exciting than seeing a Venusaur pop up in the sightings, nor more infuriating than knowing it will probably disappear long before I can stumble upon it as I walk (can't run, or I'd be "moving too fast") randomly around (and it did). There also seems to be precisely zero correlation between a 'mon's usefulness, or my catch bonus, or its CP, and how difficult it is to catch. Why does a great throw with a great ball from a level 25 trainer with +3 catch bonus fail to catch a 160 CP Weedle — twice? Why is it that an excellent throw with a great ball fails on a dual-type Pokémon with a +3 and +2, and it runs away after the first throw? All the other problems I mentioned previously are still there, except now with a chokehold on speed only exacerbated by the slingshotting. It also crashes about 50% of the time on startup. The lack of any social aspect to the game is also becoming more frustrating. There's very little "game" to be found in this game. So much potential, so little delivery.
Server Update 2/5
Niantic recently pushed a server update to randomize Pokémon IV. Sadly this punishes anyone not spoofing. This is not the first time an update got pushed to try and prevent spoofers and cheaters, but has also hurt regular people just trying to play the game. Niantic are clearly not prepared for such a large player base and large number of players wanting fixes. They are struggling to keep up with server issues and ways to prevent cheaters. The sad part is since they haven't had a large player base to handle in the past they don't understand all the ripple effect impacts that happen when trying to punish cheaters or how it actually hurts them as well. For instance, I have been playing this game since it's release and initially I spent a significant amount of money on incubators, fully expanded my back pack and poke storage, incenses, eggs, etc. on my account alone I've probably spent a a couple hundred easy and when I convinced my wife to play initially she spent about a hundred as well. My wife and I would have fun checking poke IV of Pokémon we just caught at the park and the other would go catch it immediately if it was perfect or battle of the best, and now Niantic has taken away a favorite past time for both of us. Not to mention a past update they did to attempt to stop cheaters makes the Apple Watch app shutdown or close out randomly. I responded to them immediately about this and the first thing they email back is that I should troubleshoot my devices and it sent me a list of troubleshooting suggestions. I have several computer certifications by Comp TIA and am a computer science major. I would tend to think I can spot an update flaw, but whatever. I will say they have re-responded after I unhappily had to email back that it had nothing to do with my device and only occurred immediately after the update and sadly I was a bit more sarcastic, but at least they admitted it was a known error that they're working on instead trying to say it was me. Due to these and other experiences, like myself and my wife's app crashing right before an egg hatch especially a 10k, and then not getting the hatched Pokémon in inventory, journal or otherwise, but lose the egg and any incubator uses and many others, myself and my wife have not purchased anything from the game since these and other events and probably never will again. In fact she debated on purchasing incubators during the Easter event but I talked her out of it due to the crashes and loss of uses that still occur and have sent emails to niantic with virtually no response. This game is slowly dying and I personally know over 50 people that have quit the game and/or deleted the app because of the lack of solving app issues and more care about trying to put game wide limits to help stop cheaters, while punishing honest players time and time again. This will happen again soon I'm sure of it, the only thing I'm debating is what will they do to get me to delete the app for good?
Full of cheaters 1/5
It is just sad how many cheaters there are in this game and Niantic is not doing anything to prevent them from ruining ghe game for everyone.
Pokémon GO 1/5
Terrible game. Fun if you want to just collect Pokémon. But you will never be able to do anything else fun such as gym battles. Game caters to people who play the longest. So someone who has been playing since the start will own a gym with Pokémon that are so far ahead of yours that you will never catch up. I played everyday for 4 months and still didn't have any Pokémon that could even have a chance at gyms. Don't waste your time. Good idea, terrible execution.
Forget about it 1/5
Buggy and errors out frequently. Gps drift is terrible. Gym battles throw errors CONSTANTLY. Wish they'd learn to code.
This happen 1/5
By potato lover 123
So I just downloaded the game and I'm done picking my character and the three Pokémon that are for starters are mushed together so I can't play the game I really want to play
I quit! 1/5
Let's be clear: I started this game two weeks after the initial rollout. I play diligently and I'm currently at level 36. I've suffered through changes and game mechanics (and always excepted them with a grain of salt).
However, and this is the important part, the proliferation of people using GPS spoofing has gotten out of hand. It is impossible for someone who is not cheating to hold a gym. Oh' I can take them just fine (and I have defeated my share of maxed out Dragonites. Snorlaxes, Gyarados, and now Blisseys). But when the cheaters are able to swoop-in right behind you stack the deck over and over again I am reminded of the definition of insanity.
From what I can until Niantic is either unable or unwilling to to do anything about the situation. I as well as many of my fellow legitimate players have reported the cheating accounts over and over again to no end. And so it is with heavy heart and great sadness that I give my final goodbyes to Pokémon Go.
Please fix asap 1/5
I cannot fully enjoy this game as a passenger if every time we go over 20 miles on the speedometer every Pokémon disappears and it's frustrating. I would like to catch them as I'm sitting in the car other then having to walk and see if the Pokémon will still be there if I was to drive. Please fix we would like to see the Pokémon as we're in the passenger seat of the car.
A rode that went into a dead end 5/5
I was one of the day one players it was awesome I saw people outside EVERYWHERE and it was just cool but then everything went down people started getting tired of it then it went into a dead end
Pokémon LOVER. 5/5
There just something about having s companion that is just like you, except has lasers. And can shoot your competitors that makes this game fun. Gangar is my favorite Pokémon. Cause he's mean and cute.
Missed the mark 2/5
Game had so much hype
And potential, but it totally missed the mark. There shouldn't be any teams, that way the gym isn't overloaded with the same people FOREVER. Should be every man or girl for themselves in the gym. Your 6 against their 6, just like the tv show and ALL other Pokémon games.
The whole story// Small issues that could've been fixed 3/5
I got this game right after it was launched. I remember the excitement and the anticipation about the app months before it was released, the rush to download and play the game, and the bugs. From the beginning there always has been something silly about this game. The first thing was server issues. This, I never blamed the company for. Who could have know how much the game would have blown up, so of course there would be lag. But then there was the 3rd party tracking fiasco. If you aren't aware, when the game was first created, you could find nearby Pokémon by tracking "steps." Basically there would be three footprints under the picture or silhouette and the closer you got, the less footprints would appear until you found the Pokémon. This was honestly perfect for the game. It actually had me and my friend running to catch a bulbasaur haha. However, there were some app produced that took advantage of this tracking system and created maps to show you exactly where any and all Pokémon were located. Well Niantic kinda went crazy. They began pursing legal action against said people, removed tracking all together, and came out with some pretty garbage ways to "replace" tracking. Honestly, this was their Achilles heal. They became so obsessed with 3rd party tracking that they slipped up. Several game breaking bugs were left untouched for long periods of time. I knew tons of people who, during this time, deleted the game due to these bugs. I even specifically remember from day one (launch) how everyone would check for updates on the app religiously. Niantic's obsession with tracking and lack of consumer support or response killed this game's popularity. The game was at time unplayable and made even worse with the lovely speed checker being added to the game after car accidents were linked to the game. (This is still an issue btw.) Anyway to wrap this up here is my final thoughts. If this game would have simply focused on player concerns and game issues, the app would still be popular. Even without the tracking, people still loved the game and played it constantly. I do, however, believe it could have a comeback. Let's hope if it does nothing else dramatic will happen. //Pokémon Go is very fun when it works//
Could have been better 1/5
I was so excited thought it was great but they took away all the best parts in the game. Horrible customer sourcing.... yeah it was awesome at first a lot of bugs but it never got better so I deleted it.
Bots/Spoofers at gyms 1/5
I caught all the Pokémon in North America so there's nothing to do anymore. The developers don't care to interact with their customers. Customer support is non existent. No gen 2 in the wild. No legendaries. No mewtwo. No mew. No future. If you're reading this now, just quit the game. Niantic doesn't care about us or our ideas. They think they know best when they CLEARLY don't.
Needs improvements, but I still play 3/5
By S.R. Hunt
This game is not everything Niantic promised, for example the original trailer promised trading and actual Pokemon battles, but I'll still boot it up when I go out. My dad and I enjoy playing it together, we'll go around town, hit PokeStops, catch Pokemon, and take down the occasional gym. If you aren't a hard core Pokemon fan, I wouldn't recommend it. But if you are, I'd stick to the main games on Nintendo handhelds, unless you are EXTREMELY forgiving of this game.
It crap 1/5
By This is so so so crapy
I can not get a account or log in for my son crap crap crap crap crap crap crap crap crap crap crap crap crap crap crap crap crap crap
I can't even open it 1/5
The app crashes on launch. That's just disappointing. I'm on iOS 9.2.1. This shouldn't happen.
You're worth 0 stars 1/5
By 0 stars for Niantic
There are many reasons why this deserves 0 stars, but there are two main reasons that keep coming to mind. The first being that if you live anywhere but in a big city, you can cross becoming a top player off your list. The other being that the distance tracking service is so terrible that it makes you not even want to play for fun. FIX YOUR APP.
This is always my go to game! Daily player. Very addicting. Gotta catch them all! :)
This game is garbage add player vs play 1/5
Save Your Balls... Screw this update! 1/5
Using incense, raspberries and mega balls, every single Pokémon is breaking free and running away. Even low level pidgeys and ratattas. I wasted the last 15 minutes of my incense being I'm simply wasting all my poke balls with this update (that's with good throws/curveballs). Screw this! Never purchasing another pokeball pack ever again. What a WASTE!
Escape problem 1/5
Been playing since release last July. Every time I attempt to catch something when I open the game, it runs away. Been happening for the past 3 days. Done with this game.
Fun, but needs work 4/5
Pokémon go is fun game don't get me wrong. It's really my major motivation to go on runs. I have been having problems with eggs it will say it's complete and never hatch?!? Also during your so called rarer Pokémon event for Easter was a bust I got nothing but pidgeys and one decent caterpie. The speed limit is driving me crazy I have yet to learn to drive and while in the car while we are going ten mph it says I'm going too fast 😡 recently it has been more difficult to catch Pokémon because I can't get Pokémon stops while in the car! I understand that shinies are rare but they're a little too hard to find, but it's hard to find them living in a small town. I understand Niantic is always looking for bugs and such and appreciate their hard work and consideration.
Make trading and battling people a thing
Stupid driving rules 1/5
Not allowing people to catch Pokémon for being in a car is the dumbest rule ever. I'm a passenger quite often and no other game stops me from playing for being in a car. People pass the time of car rides with games why would you disable poke stops and Pokémon while driving. Also game has slowly had worse and worse Pokémon show up all the time.
Pokémon Go For it 5/5
By THE FLAPPY ONE
Saw some idiots complaining in their reviews how hard it is to level up. More levels are coming. And if you play and get your seven day streaks, it's not too hard. Saw some idiots complaining that Niantic works too hard on stoping trackers and spoofers. I'd say it's great that they're targeting spoofers, my neighborhood is overrun with 3000+ CP Dragonites, Blisseys, and more. Same users in gyms over and over, they must be stopped. We get a new event every 1-2 months. Stop complaining about every little glitch and problem and enjoy the game. Go outside. Explore. Go.
This app stinks!!! 1/5
I tryed to create a passcode and they made it so difficult to wear I jut gave up!!! They should really fix this...ANY TYPE OF PASSWORD SHOULD BE ALLOWED AND EMAILS PHONE NUMBERS AND OTHER THINGS SHOULD NOT BE NEEDED TO DIFFUCULT!!!!!
Love it!😍 5/5
I've been playing this game ever since it came out and it's still my favorite app. Great job Niantic but I was trying to catch 30 torus like Ash and you made the spawning go way down. I get it but I was at 28, Nice job though on the game again.
Like and don't 1/5
By like and dont
I like it because it fun but don't because you have to sign up on the internet
Too many spoofers 1/5
They should do something with the spoofer😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
