Please fix this.
Pokémon GO needs to keep going 2/5
For Pokémon Go to stay relevant and succeed, Niantic needs to create a fun, mobile game that encourages adventure and exploration.
Unfortunately, that is the ONLY way to play the game. if you're not out on the road, walking or traveling, the game is unplayable. There is nothing for you to do and no reason for you to turn the game on at home unless you consider grinding up weak Pokémon for candy fun.
Pokémon GO needs to adapt to survive. I can tell you as a player of this game since it originally launched--it does get dull and boring. I still play on the daily, yes. But that is only because my workplace is a gym and a couple of PokéStops, so it is convenient. Don't get me wrong, it is still enjoyable at those times I am able to play, but it is only for a few minutes of gameplay out of the day i.e. while on lunch.
I want to still be able to play the game from home at the end of the day. Not everyone will or can go out of their way to play this game religiously. And not everyone can always be at a Pokéstop or gym (those moments the game actually is fun). Especially not late at night.
As the game is right now, the only things that you can do without going out of your way to play includes, reading the dex entries or grinding up Pokémon for candy. Mass evolutions and powering up Pokémon can be enjoyable, but you rarely get to do that stuff anyway because you have to save up.
I want a way to catch Pokémon without going out (again) at the end of the day. I recommend you NOT spend real money for incense as the item is a waste of time if you're not out walking around anyway.
The only way for Pokémon GO to keep interest is to let players still play the game when they're at home and such, but encourage players to go out (for bigger, better rewards and better catches).
Give players a slower way to hatch eggs from home, but encourage them to walk to hatch it faster.
Give players a way to collect stardust or candy WHEREVER they are, albeit not as much as if they were out and roaming about. That way we can still make progress and keep interest by evolving or powering up the Pokémon we really care about.
Give us players an occasional random Pokémon spawn for tapping the grass in our bubble and remaining active in the game. But entice us to go out and catch that tempting Chansey in the Nearby list.
Let us players battle without having to travel to a gym just to enjoy that part of the game.
The game is currently a repetitive fetch quest. You see some Pokémon at PokéStops on the nearby list (if you even live close to any) until there is one you like, then you drive to that spot to catch it. Rinse and repeat.
If you live by PokéStops then you don't get to see what Pokémon are in the wild. If there are any in the wild (with the grass icon behind them) then you still don't know which direction to go anyway. Pokémon GO is a big, expensive investment of time and gas money for serious players.
My neighbor a couple houses down has a spawn point. I guess I could either creep on over at weird times of the day or stay at my own house and 'buy' incense. Lucky them.
Pokémon sightings in the wild should be indicated by the moving grass/leaves that Niantic took out of the game. You don't know what Pokémon it is, but you know where it is. They should also dynamically change. The same 3 Pokémon spawns up the street are the same 3 from a few months ago. All I want is the chance that Pokémon could or might eventually spawn at my location as well.
The game also becomes unplayable for players who are in a moving vehicle by disabling the entire map.
It is also annoying starting up the game and having Pokémon around me spawn, disappear, spawn, disappear again, then spawn because my character is moving around and the game is recalibrating my location.
It is also annoying getting killed in a gym because the server didn't register my dodge in time before refreshing itself. What happens then is your Pokémon gets killed, it brings out your next one, then brings back out the one that died (now with less life) and it's invisible because the game is broken. Then it dies again 2 seconds later anyway.
CP is also a broken, unbalanced, unfinished concept. There is no reason to put a 2,000 CP Umbreon in the gym when I can put a 3,000 CP Espeon in and hold my position for longer. Although Umbreon has the clear advantage in type and Defense stat. For that reason you see a lot of the same high CP Pokémon in gyms--Vaporeon, Rhydon, Blissey, Arcanine, etc. Just so they could be higher up.
I would love to see a Squirtle, Igglybuff, Meowth or Magcargo in a gym. But Pokémon GO makes every pre-evolution or low CP Pokémon pretty much obsolete. Why use a Pikachu at all once you get a Raichu? Into the grinder, I guess.
Trainers' positions in a gym should be determined by the amount of Prestige they attribute to it.
Gym leader: 5,000 prestige
2nd: 3,000 prestige
3rd: 500 prestige just to throw a Pokémon in to collect coins
Encourage players to continue battling to hold a gym.
The problem Pokémon GO faces is stagnation. The game dictates to you when you can and can't play. The events Niantic does are mostly enjoyable, but there is little reason to play at all when there isn't an event going on because it's the same usual common Pokémon.
Everyone will eventually grow tired of wasting gas, or going out of their way. I want to play the game and have fun, but Niantic won't let me.
For that reason I've been enjoying more of The Pokémon Company mobile games lately, such as Magikarp Splash.
This app crashes 10-20 times a day!!! 1/5
This app is awful. Why in the world don't you fix this? I am constantly reloading the app after it locks up (blue screen) or it auto restarts almost every time I unlock my phone. Consistently loses connection to my Pokémon Go Plus...so annoying!
I keep coming back to the game to see if anything is fixed. Disappointed each and every time!!!
I wish I could give this zero stars!
Extremely one sided and glitchy 1/5
DO NOT PLAY DO NOT PLAY
Horrible gps tracking that covers no distance , as well as over flooded pidgeys and rattatas with absolutely no way of catching anything even near the rare side, taken app off the phone and will no longer support Pokémon and niantic products
WOULD RATE 0 STARS IF I COULD 1/5
Your website says compatible with iPhone 5s but I'm on an iPhone 5s and it won't work plz fix I loved this game before this but now I can't play
I have iPhone 6s Plus and this won't even let me catch first Pokémon. I've tried everything. Unplayable.
Absolute Garbage 1/5
Pokemon Go is one of the worst games I've ever had the displeasure of playing.
Still needs to be fixed on a basic level. . . 1/5
Your pity Snorlax won't change my opinion, you don't get your stars back.
Still waiting on that gym revamp. . .
You make the game more aggravating to play instead of making it more fun to play.
This game could be tons of fun, biggest issues are that they're missing basic functions of most Pokémon games - PvP and Trading. Those two basic features would have kept more people playing. The other problem is it takes them months to fix glitches and problems with the game. They keep implementing features like promo codes and other junk but all most of us want is trading and pvp.
It's almost there 4/5
Please please please add trading! Other than that it's better than last year.
Don't start 1/5
Poorly designed filled with glitches and addicting in a bad unfun way. Don't start it will take you months to get free again
By Ando gamer
So fake man if you only could make it a little more realistic
Festival of Trash 1/5
Is it just me, or does everything caught since the big update with a reasonably high CP appraise as garbage? Oh, hey, also a big thanks for all the Mantines, Niantic! Five 10km eggs since the Gen 2 Update and all hatched the kraptastic and incredibly useless Mantine. But at least I've got that 124 Mantene candy burning a hole in my pocket. Wonder what I'll spend it on...
Correction: make that 6 Mantines and a whopping 144 candy in the last six 10km eggs. Anyone for a nice Mantine steak?
Hoenn is my favorite! 5/5
By Inquisitor Cole
I absolutely cannot wait until gen 3 is released! It's going to be absolutely amazing like when the game launched, and when gen 2 launched! When is it Niantic? We're waiting. The game has died again.
By Hook 2000
I love playing the app, but when I bought coins worth $1 it charged me like $3.75.
It works until... 5/5
Ok so my game works but right when I'm about to get something good it crashes but I will thank you that you've brought my childhood great pleasure!
To people who write bad reviews 5/5
The game has had problems and they have started to fix them so much now it is only getting better. People need to be patient and not take things for granted like even having a tracker
or getting events and Ditto!!!!
Broken on iOS 10.3.2 2/5
Crashes on the latest IOS update when you try to open on iPhone 7+

Pokémon Go Review 5/5

This is an AMAZING game!
Update Delays 👎🏻 2/5
By Jimmy Phillip
I used to play this non-stop, but ever since the trading update and other updates are promised at a certain time but then delayed, I gave up. 2 stars as of right now.
Pokemon Go 4/5
By Dan Gendy
I have had this game since the day the game came out and I still have the game. This game changed mobile gaming and I think it can change it even more. The games popularity has died a little bit but an update like trading and new items can really change the game. The map could also use a little upgrading and I feel there should be more customization for your player. The game is great overall and I hope this game can survive for a long time.
Great idea, bad customer service, no trade 1/5
A novel idea to get nerds out of the house. Also, the game needs to have the ability to trade! Moreover, if you are a college student or was a college student and your college email has a risk of being deleted by your college then don't get this game. Don't waist your time unless you use another email. Even then...don't get this game. The moment you want to switch email addresses because you're being harassed with spam or someone you don't like, you should probably deal with it since this game doesn't allow you to change your profile email. Therefore, if you love the game and hate your Ex then you will have to choose.
Used to be good 1/5
You just can't take the negative reviews, try fixing the game then!
I recently quit playing because:
The speed cap on pokestops.
The blue screens.
The Pokémon randomly disappearing.
The glitches like the speed cap popping up while sitting still.
Another app maker swore they would never make their app better and users just had to deal with it. Look up where yik yak is now.
This game has become more frustrating than fun. Since I've quit my battery lasts all day again and I no longer look like a moron in public 😂 maybe I should thank them since without this game I really do enjoy my days more. I got a Fitbit and still get my steps.
It's okie 3/5
By Nerd girl622
Im currently sitting down at my favorite poke stop and gym and now i cant take down the blue gym because theres a time limit. I understand it makes it harder to get into the gym but it also makes it easier to stay in which if im correct isnt the entire purpose of the game to be diffucult to stay in a gym so that the creators can make money off of people buying coins can we please go back to no time limits
Fix this 1/5
I got the 200 poke ball pack and now I can't log in
It won't load 1/5
This pops up the screen and loads and sends me to a blank white screen and I have a apple and my sisters will load but mine won't do this app needs better updating services or something cause this is dumb and I shouldn't have to go through this and when it loads it's so hard to sight in make a better apple version plz
Old problem to new 2/5
Ok so at first it wouldn't let me make an account now it won't get off the freaking loading screen!!! It will do the music for like 5 minutes and then kick me off!!! I wonder if this happens to others well bye for now. 2 stars make better!
Love this game but... 5/5
I love this game it got me outside, but that was last summer this summer my game somehow reset which I was fine with until I realized it's nearly impossible to take over a gym because they are all level 10 and each Pokémon is over2000 cp and I know Niantic couldn't be bothered to read comments so I just want to say, new players you will be surprised in both ways.
Getting boring and some suggestions 3/5
By somerandoms person
It's starting to get really boring now. First off, not everyone lives in a big city with a whole lot of poke stops and gyms. In some places, some churches are either pokestops or gyms. A way to fix this is by every few km, there should be a pokestop or use bus stops as pokestops. Many people who travel need transportation so bus stops might be a better alternative for many trainers. In addition, the buddy system and egg hatching takes way too much of my time. PLEASE, FIX UR BATTERY SYSTEM AS WELL!!!
I'm sorry but this app isn't worth my time anymore 1/5
They removed the tracker making this app unplayable if you want to catch them all. I actually went out every day just to catch Pokemon and now i can rarely find the Pokemon I'm searching for. It also doesn't help that they lowered the amount of Pokemon in my area too. I use to get several Pokemon just from walking around and now it's getting really hard to want to play this.
Update: It's just getting a lot worse. So now they made it a lot harder to catch Pokemon so i need way more pokeballs than i can get. I guess i will find a real Pokemon game to play. I just spent 10 great balls trying to catch a 300cp pikachu and it still ran away. That is a useless level. I even used the spin catch technique. They also lowered the speed even more so i can't even ride my bike to hatch a egg. I give up this is a simple cash grab not a game. To bad a real game company didn't make it.
Needs Improvement 4/5
By TJ's Ratings
This game is extremely addictive and took the world by storm when it first came out. It's a good concept, being a Pokémon trainer in real life and trying to "catch 'em all". But, there are a few things that need improvement.
This app drains your battery extremely fast, no matter if you are playing on and iPhone or an Android. This makes it difficult to catch Pokémon when you can't have a charger with you.
Pokéballs are extremely hard to come by. Unless you spend months collecting them and catching no Pokémon, they very difficult to gather. I usually have one to two Pokéballs, catch a Pokémon, then stand around the same PokéStop for five minutes until I can get a couple Pokéballs from it, and the cycle repeats.
PokéStops are pretty scarce unless you are in a large city. This adds to the problem of not having any Pokéballs.
Once these problems are solved, I will update my review. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
It won't open anymore 1/5
I haven't been able to open and play for a very very long time. It started freezing and I had to close it completely and restart it. Then finally when that happened it just would look like it's starting to open but it just returns to my home screen. When I go to close all the programs I have open it shows the very last time that it was working and the screen it froze on. Very frustrating.
Get it Together Niantic! 2/5
This app had so much potential but there are too many broken components to this games to actually enjoy playing it. All I ever get are 5 km eggs and I hatch the same few Pokémon from them every time! It's the same old Pokémon popping up every single day. No variety in Pokémon whatsoever unless there is an event going on! This game is fun if you're new to it but after awhile it gets so boring and old.
If you wonder why Niantic doesn't do anything about cheaters...well Niantic doesn't play fair either. There are places where every single Pokémon in the app pops up. Then there are areas (like where I live) that the same ten kinds of Pokémon pop up every day!
Mega awesome game 5/5
So awesome and I love this game so much
CRASHING PROBLEM 1/5
To the creators 3/5
Seriously?Why can't people with iPods or iPads pay Pokémon go? I hope the creators are reading this.Next time please make a game everyone can play. Also, can you add a joy stick or something?
I wanna report it!! 3/5
By laya reed
It's not working now idk why it was working good thos 2 days now it don't wanna work I redown load it still not working y'all need to fixs ur problem
My user name on Pokémon go is : willosreed
Gym Ejection Glitch is still here! 3/5
You're fighting at a Gym, the satellite thinks you've moved out of range, then you get kicked out of your fight for no good reason.
Then, you try and come back to the Gym to fight, only to find the Gym keeps saying "Error" and not letting you fight in the Gym anymore.
This glitch has persisted SINCE LAUNCH!
FIX THIS PROBLEM or I'm taken my money elsewhere.
There needs to be a login! 4/5
I play Pokémon go and I really enjoy this game. One day I splashed my phone with water in it became water damaged I was really upset because of my Pokémon GO account that I had on my phone. I wasn't able to receive my account because I wasn't able to turn my phone back on. Is there anyway that anyone knows how to get your account back from water damage phone. It would be much easier if it was a log in button to the Pokémon go account instead of creating a new one every time.
No Scanner Alternatives after 1 Year- Unacceptable 1/5
Niantic continues to push its player base away by implementing security measures to eliminate 3rd party scanners WITHOUT PROVIDING AN ALTERNATIVE. Pokestop tracking is a very minor improvement. If I play 8 hours and can't find a Dragonite or Snorlax that's a joke. Start fixing your own flaws in your game before eliminating 3rd party scanners that are keeping people around. The majority of players share this view as Niantics own polling has shown.
Not Anymore Fun 1/5
Not worth playing anymore with all the spoofers out there took fun out getting on gyms when no one else is around ! Just took over whole game sick of it ! I AM DONE!
Update 5/27 2017
I did quit playing this game just not interested anymore the area I live in is rural area nothing good around ! Please consider putting more out there instead birds 🤣 Union Ohio And Englewood Ohio !
Yes, I'm a passenger 3/5
When we pass a stop, it'll open up, but when I spin it, if the car is going over about 20mph, it'll say "Try Again Later". So frustrating!
Also, how many times do I have to click "I am a passenger"?!
Will pokecoins ever have a sale!?!?!
