THREAT TO YOUR SYSTEM, TRACKS DATA, UNSAFE TO YOU 1/5
By I don't know about you
BAD DESIGN----THIS GAME IS SO BORING WHEN NO POKESTOPS OR GYMS ARE IN YOUR AREA WHICH IS MOST AREAS. IT PUTS YOU AT THREAT WITH SOME OF THE REAL WORLD PLACES POKESTOPS AND GYMS ARE PLACED SO BE REAL CAREFUL SO YOU AREN'T KNIFED OR SHOT. In addition, this game has specifically designed it's locations of Pokestops and gyms to push crowds of people to specific shops to spend money and specific religious buildings to consider your beliefs. In addition, IT TRACKS YOUR EVERY MOVE WHICH CAN BE GIVEN OR SOLD TO OTHER COUNTRIES LIKE GOV. & MILITARY. This "GAME" is a design of much higher social politics being used on the people and the people are being moved like SHEEP by their own choice in specific countries and not all countries. MOSTLY THE U.S.
Stolen Pokémon coins 2/5
By That Kid Zap
There has been several times I have tried to purchase a bag upgrade to be able to collect more items but when I purchased the upgrade the bag amount stood the same. I’ve spent over 600 coins to upgrade and the game takes the coins but does not upgrade the bag amount. PLEASE FIX THIS ISSUE.
Could be better. Battling and leveling up are both lame. 1/5
Yeah. The whole real world mapping is cool. Turning parks and churches into gyms and stops. That’s cool too. But t what is lame is the lack of battles, and the only way to level up your Pokémon is to catch more of the same kind and feeding them the candy. Lame. The battling, or lack there of. I’d like to be able to battle people in range of me, or battle wild Pokémon. Just like the original. I guess it was an alright attempt. But it just didn’t harness my favorite parts of the original game, which was beefing up my team through lots and lots of battles. One star.
iPhone 8 latest ver. 3/5
Keeps freezing. It will last until I manually close the app.
Aw Freakin’ Thing 1/5
I MEAN LIKE, SHOULDN’T YOU BE ABLE TO MAKE 2 ACCOUNTS WITH THE SAME EMAIL? Like what if you’re a parent that makes an account with some email and then likes it and wants your kids to be able to play and then you try to put the same email and it thinks you forgot the password for the other one. I haven’t played Pokémon Go for a long time and then I decided to play it once more and make a brand new account but since I tried to use the same email it won’t let me. So then I’m just like, “Why won’t it freakin’ let me?!” And I get angry so just please please please please please please please please please please make it possible to use the same email and I might rate this game better rather than the worst.
Such wow such gym 1/5
Nerf the use of berries from remote gym owners when battling. Been sitting here for 30 minutes fighting the same blissey. Making them waste their berries but still :)
Number of peaple killed 1/5
There have been 182 peaple killed because of pokemon go and im surprised that Pokémon go hasn’t been taken of the App Store by now.
Does AR Plus work for IPod? 5/5
I have a question does AR plus work for IPod cause it says it works for IOS but it doesn’t work for my IPod which is IOS
Avatar won’t walk 2/5
My character won’t walk anywhere even when I have a full signal it’s just not loading properly. Since it won’t walk anywhere my eggs won’t hatch.
No Account?¡!¿... 2/5
ok so the now after I deleted the app and redownloading it, it says unable to authenticate for my trainer account. additionally have written it down before any of this happened. I love this app but you already know that niamtic sense you fixed the past problems I had. I now just am worried that because I didn't download the app from the cloud that my trainer account is gone. I needs the Helps.?!!
Other ways to level up Pokémon and get them stronger would be great! 4/5
You should make random looking trainer bots out and when you tap them first, a dialogue box will appear saying: “Are you sure you want to battle this trainer?” And next, you have a choice of yes and no, and then you click next, and then the game finds an accurate CP for someone your level, or your Pokémon’s CP. Then, you battle the trainer (But the trainer also has a randomized set of 6 Pokémon). And then, you get about 200 XP, (This isn’t a Raid Battle, so you don’t get as much XP) and then you have more trainers to battle. And everyday, you can get a daily trainer to battle. If this actually becomes a thing, I would be so happy!!!
Great game 4/5
I really enjoy playing this game, however I would love to be able to battle those pokemons as I catch them just like in the real cartoon.
When that happens ill give my 5stars
No revives 1/5
No way to get revives I currently have 100 potions but no revives my bag is almost empty with dead Pokémon
Old splash screen 5/5
Hey guys, it’s March 17. Perhaps time to get rid of the New Year’s splash screen?
Gym bug 3/5
Fix the bug that makes your game freeze every time you click on a gym. Affecting everyone i know. Jesus.
Problem after Problem 1/5
I love this game but Pokémon Go does not have a good way to contact customer support the website is impossible to manage. I want to know why poke balls keep going missing. I am not sure why I should keep playing this game if poke balls keep vanishing. It happens to my husband and it happens to me. Someone better fix this because I love Pokémon Go and this is not okay!
Ideas for updates 4/5
By BKA Chief
Here's an idea for an update: give a Pokestop a Pokémon Center function. I am burning through most of my potions and cannot seem to replenish them fast enough. It would be so much easier if I could go to a nearby location and heal my Pokémon instead of 1 revive plus several potions
Edit: I don’t know what’s the deal with determining who gets an EX raid pass, but I have never received one despite having raided several times at a known EX location in my hometown. How can I increase my chances?
Addendum: Why have revives become so scarce? I hope in a future update that they become more common as I have several friends in my raid group who have several fainted Pokémon and have no revives to wake them up
First I’ll say that I love to play Pokémon and had given it 5 stars on my original review, however I had to downgrade that to 3 stars.
I walk a lot and play Pokémon as I go. Since ur last upgrade it freezes up continually causing me to have to close then reopen the app and then wait for a connection which is sometimes difficult when ur walking through the woods.
Another problem I’m having is after capturing a Pokémon it will sometimes say “evolve” then when I hit it it won’t evolve, however nothing happens and you don’t get a second chance to try again as the “evolve” is no longer highlighted!
Both of these problems happen numerous times during my 5 mile walk and I’m ready to get rid of the app altogether.
Pls pls pls fix this and next time u put an update out to fix one problem pls do not have it cause another sometimes more irritating one!
Hating this game 1/5
By sophia maggie
This game is so bad. When I try to sign in it does not work. I do not recommend.
I have to say... 1/5
By The spoon is eating me

Miss Older Version. 1/5
Rated 4* so people can see....
If this game EVER goes back WITHOUT raids, I’ll play. Or at least give US an option for the battle,
Example: Are you trying to defend the gym by yourself, or with the full team?
It’s hard when you have absolutely NO friends or family who are interested in Pokémon. Otherwise. I haven’t played it in months. I picked up in Nov. ‘17, played in a raid, got my Pokémon in, next few minutes to an hour...it was out.
I LOVED the older version WAY more!
Please release legendary without raids 1/5
Well, new Pokemon mean I'm back. But I, like others, am a solo player and with the raids are shut out of the legendary Pokemon. I cannot win a raid against a legendary by myself. The first round of legendary Pokemon came and went. I saw them but had zero chance to get them. Once, and only once, two other people showed up to battle Zapdos. No luck, we couldn't defeat it. All the other times, I was by myself, even at a community college. Since then, Niantic keeps releasing them through the raid system. Worthless!!! I can never get one. Strange, these are supposed to be ultra rare and legendary yet some people have 5, 10 even 20 of EACH legendary and I have zero!!! Why??? I'm a solo player and Niantic doesn't care. They do more to exclude than help. Ex raids are not exclusive, they are excluding!!! Basically I am not worthy to have one per Niantic. I do not waste my time with raids I cannot win but I did hatch 1,500 eggs. But that does not count I guess. Please, enough with the legendary raids already and release them where a solo player like me have a chance. The only reason you keep doing this is all money driven. So, I will not pay for raids I cannot win BUT, I would pay $5 or $10 for a legendary incubator to hatch a 50 km egg to hatch a legendary. Niantic said months ago they knew it was not fair for rural or solo players and they have improved spawns but have done absolutely nothing to help solo or rural players when it comes to legendary Pokemon. A game should be fair to everyone and not different between locations. Love Pokemon, hate raids and legendary release. DO SOMETHING!!
Update: still no changes with legendary raids so no legendary Pokémon for me! So annoying.
2nd update: they released Lugia again! Awesome I may get my first legendary Pokémon. Nope only available through raids again. WORTHLESS!! I’m a solo player in a rural suburb. I tried. First day, 6:00pm on Friday. Maybe it will happen. Went to local Post office where raid was happening and as always, I’m by myself. Thanks for nothing Niantic. Why should I play this game anymore. Niantic is doing everything it can to make me quit or frustrate me. Ugh!!!!
Freezes repeatedly feeding gyms 1/5
By Michael haas
One on guys! It been two weeks!! Fix it! It makes feeding guns impossible
Fun but 4/5
By josh slicker
The game gets repetitive and it would be nice to add in trading and pvp but i doubt that will happen so just keep the game up to date and i will keep playing. Raid battles are definitely a good thing!
Good but needs work 3/5
It is a fun game bug it will lag and take me out of the game when I find a animal so then it’s makes me mad because I spent most of my time doing the beginning like dressing my character and singing in!!😕
Always crash...... 3/5
Always crash so have to restart the app.....
(iPhone X user)
Too much problems 1/5
you can even change the move is the same thing over and over steel and fired bast nothing you can change
Freezes in the gym 3/5
Lately the game has been freezing every time you go to feed a Pokémon in the gym.
Also the ability to link with friends and exchange items would be awesome but mainly the gym feature needs to be addressed.
Please ad a soundtrack 5/5
By insigna game creators
I would love if you guys put a soundtrack on it like the Pokémon black and white 2
So fun, but needs a patch 4/5
I played Pokémon go for a year and a half when it came out, and just got back into it. I love the changes they’ve made!
BUT the current version is laggy and freezes regularly (even have to re-start the app), especially at gyms. Kinda the worst place to have lag...
Hoping for a good patch, or I might have to take another break from the game.
It still needs TLC 2/5
Lots of crashes, specially if you’re on the go below the speed limit (like 20 mph). After a year of development, some text screens for Spanish overlap with the app’s UI graphics. Also, I’d love Spanish to be localized for Latin American users, or Spanish speaking users living in the US. Lastly, it seems that the screen freezes quite a bit with the iPhone X. I’m not spending more moolah on it unless that issue is solved.
Pos game 1/5
Wish I didn’t have to give it a star to comment. This pos don’t even deserve one star.
By ++cj 2005++
I really hate this game it just is horrible
TRASH!!! 😡😡😡 1/5
This game is horrible. I found out there was a TON of pokemon at my house and a gym right across the street. BUT, I the GPS was not working, yet I went to maps and it was working. The only way I could get pokemon near me was with essence, WHICH I ONLY HAD 2 OF!! And better yet: when you tap on pokemon IT DOES NOT EVEN BRING TO THE CATCHING SCREEN!!!!!! Later, I decided to try again. I found out that my account was DELETED for NO REASON. In conclusion: THIS IS TRASH!!!
Big bug 3/5
With this new update I found a rather big bug, when you spin a gym or pokestop, it does not change to purple. So you have no idea what stops you have spun and you just have to guess when the stop / gym is ready for a new spin
Spoofing is rampant 1/5
They haven’t addressed the spoofing issue. I quit playing the game after I spent 30 minutes trying to take a gym only to have one spoofer continuously re-place the Pokemon I just beat and finally when it stopped. A pair of spoofers from my team steal the gym right from under me. With 360 degree view there was no one in sight. A year later I came back to an updated gym system which made things worse. Same thing after nearly taking out the gym and brought down to three Pokemon I watched the CP’s rise back up to max AS I WAS BATTLING THEM, which is weird because I wasn’t allowed to do wait for the battle to end before attempting anything. Lag? Still.... the spoofing hasn’t changed and killed this game for me. Wish I never spent any money on this
Battle able 4/5
I love this game play it all the time but I would love if you could really battle. Like how it was on the game boy I have the Pokémon plus as well but I’d like to be able to battle other players not just at gyms . Kinda like if you were near another player you 2 could battle. Over all great game
Game is getting worse 2/5
Many bugs need to be fixed. The game freezes often. When you try and feed Pokémon in gyms the game will freeze. Some time when you log in the game loads to a blank ground/sky screen. The gym change to restrict coins is a rip off, meant to force people to spend money in the store to buy stuff. Lame.
Best game ever 1/5
By cyden pattersom
Pokemon go is my favorite I play it every day from,cayden age 9
Play only if you live in a city 2/5
It's designed to be played in dense populated areas. If you live in a small town or just in the middle of nowhere, accept the fact you will never get some of the more rare pokemon.
I was wandering if we can saw our friends who has Pokémon go Like Snapchat.........
The only reason I gave this four stars is cause there’s this bug that makes you not able to anything
Help me use the joystick
This app is fun to play but it doesn’t always work. Most of the time it only works at home, it’s very annoying because every time I go to the park it never works.
Pokémon Go Plus 4/5
There’s need to be an update that allows the Go Plus to throw all my pokeballs! Why would you restrict the ability to throw great and ultra balls? Oh wait, because with the go plus you waste your pokeballs quickly and if you want more you can buy more in the shop. Screw these Special Boxes and give us more bang for our buck with the base items. Thought EA was bad, pfft.
Raid communication 4/5
By Nd hendecagon
When I go to a raid I’d like to know if there are other strong trainers around me and who’s all at the raid and stuff like that. Make it to where you can communicate with others who are looking for strong trainers to raid with. Like a chat room for people in your area
I know wow... 1/5
By magikarp review
The game deleted my account
Needs overhauling 3/5
By my Mustang
Major issue that needs to be fixed: Is the feeding system should be available only AFTER a battle of all the Pokémon in the gym AND/OR when nobody is battling down the gym. I have encountered along with few others that we are in a battle to faint a 800CP Blissey (for example) out and as soon as we believe that we knocked that Blissey out it got fed a golden berry just before it got knocked out to go back to 2997. It would be great to disable treat feeding during battles. Also it’s upsetting when myself (along with others sometimes) are battling down a gym and someone puts their Pokémon in the gym while it’s under attack. Last I heard it wasn’t allowed to put in Pokémon in gyms that were under attack.Yes I know that you might get a few coins less but it would level the playing ground in general.
The weather feature is great but needs a more realistic feeling. Like where I live sometimes it can be cloudy/partly cloudy on one side of town and sunny on the other side of the town or foggy on one side and either cloudy or sunny on the side or light rain around town with cloudy weather on other parts. The feature that needed is weather changes depends where you are at the moment.
What’s frustrating lately is when you battle a gym down and the same exact team takes it over before you can put a Pokémon into the gym. Example Instinct gets knocked out of the gym and within 3 seconds Instinct is taking over that gym again. How is that even possible? I thought whoever defeated the gym first was prioritized. Niantic- Do something to fix this issue. Also I ran across a bug/glitch that error myself along with a few people I’m with out of battling after damaging a few Pokémon in a nearby gym.
Edit: With the EX Raid passes, the passes should go to active raiders in the community and NOT some level 20 guy who has done a few raids recently (3 in one week and 7 all together). Also spread the passes along the active raiders so everyone has a fair chance. And if a group of people get an EX-Raid pass for the same gym there should be talks between the group to see what day and time would work instead of a set day and time and is a inconvenience for some of the group. And then report back to Niantic to say the time and day.
What’s needed soon is a trading for Pokémon and trading/selling for stuff in the inventory. The reason for trading Pokémon needs to come out because someone people came around just after the Legendary Birds disappeared or may not have Tauros (my region Pokémon) and are extremely low on funds or don’t have time to travel). Selling/trading items in the inventory is needed because some people don’t have enough of one or two items or people don’t want to give up tons of items in the inventory for nothing (maybe bulk selling is worth 5-10 coins for potions and 2-5 coins for balls) and bulk selling can happen every 3-4 days.
What’s needed is daily objectives. Need to complete 2 or 3 goals. And the rewards are 5 Pokeballs, 15 or 20 coins, and 100xp for daily rewards and 10 Pokeballs, 50 coins, and 400xp for the weekly reward and 30 Pokeballs, 200 coins, and 2,000xp for the monthly reward.
Also what's needed is raid punishment for people who leave during battle. It gets frustrating when you almost done with the raid and most people leave because their Pokémon die and don't feel like selecting new ones or a raid just starts with 12 people (example) and most of them leave except myself and 1-2 other people. But if you do leave for whatever reason it should go 1) warning 2) 4 day raid suspension 3) 1 1/2 weeks raid and gym suspension 4) 4 weeks raid and gym suspension. And game suspension after 3rd suspension (starts at 2 weeks then when you come back you start the gym/raid suspension). If you lag out or lose connection or "error" then you won't be punished.
Also if you join a Raid but have to get going (work, weather, emergency in the area, late somewhere) just as it starts or shortly after it starts they should give the player a .25 to .5 of a mile to battle in the raid before it kicks them out.
With raids, they should pop up even at night and early morning hours from 7:30pm to 6am. The only catch is that the raids are 1 and 2 stars in parks and non-residential areas. Some people do play at night or can’t sleep and might want to play. And doing that might increase the playerbase a little.
With earning coins at gyms, it frustrating when you in a gym for 2+ days and only get A 1 day bonus of 50 coins. I've been in multiple gyms that I've defended for 3-4 days and only got 50 coins. So it would be nice to get the coins for the rest of days you are in the gym and get extra coins for extended stays in the gyms (so if you stay in for 4 days it would be 200 and extended stay would be 250 altogether). And if there are 2+ Pokémon in different gyms you should be able to get the same coins amount. Also if you are in a gym for a short period of time (like 5 minutes give or take) at least reward us with a couple of coins at least. Also one feature that would be interesting to add is more coins for the people battle down the gym and leaves their Pokémon in that gym followed by placement of the Pokémon (ex for a day. The 2 people who battle down the gym might get 65 coins followed by the 1 person who put their Pokémon in right after for 55 coins and 50 coins for the 3 people who put thePokémon in about 20 minutes later).
Edit: There should be a friend request/list for this game along with with chat. So if you run across a helpful person/group you have the option to send them a friend request. Or can add people in different states and countries. It might be good so you can invite friends to raids or trading (if it comes out).
Edit: Also maybe once a month for 1 day is open the requests for gyms and Pokéstops. It will be great for for people in rural areas (not myself though) and places that don’t have that many.
Game keeps crashing and giving error messages 3/5
My game crashes spontaneously and force closes. I also get a lot of error messages when transferring, evolving, catching...a lot. I’m playing the most recent update on the IPhone 8.
