forced AR? ridiculous 1/5
joke that you can no longer turn off ar. now it's either ar or ar+ smh
Used to be better 2/5
The new GO AR version is crappy and unreliable. It’s so inconvenient to twist a phone around and around and just waste pokeballs for this horrid thing. I suggest AR should be an option. The old cartoonish background was better than whatever AR is now by a million times.
Gen 3 5/5
By Twisted 99
I have played this game since it came out. Waiting gen 4 and know it going to be great. There is still gen three that hasn’t been set free in my area. Not just the specials
New update more bugs 2/5
First of all I love this game but....
1. game crashes frequently when selecting avatar (OLD)
2. game sometimes launches to black screen (NEW)
3. game freezes just before gotcha message sometimes after catching pokémon (NEW)
Crashes on iPhone X 1/5
Play The Walking Dead: Our World instead of this glorified ring toss. Can't go wrong with guns and zombies.
Can’t turn off AR 4/5
With the new update I can not turn off the AR. I don’t like that. The background is white also when catching. Lame and annoying.
Can’t turn off AR Mode after update 5/5
Even after disabling AR+ Mode once it...just was not working, I can’t turn off regular AR Mode and am forced to deal with motion controls when...I don’t want to.
I got awesome service 5/5
I’m level 38. I give 5 stars because my email was answered for help recovering my daughter’s account and the staff person helped me in the same day! That was amazing service!
Please add 3/5
I am tired of having to stack and save revives and potions we need Pokécenters and we need to be able to use Potions and revives in battles and gyms and raids I don’t have all the time in the world to drive around and get out and hope to randomly get revives and potions to be dead for a week this is trash feature we need Poké centers and able to use things in battle please the game is my favorite
Don’t update 1/5
You will get stuck in ar+ mode
White screen when catching Pokémon 1/5
There is a white screen when catching Pokémon and makes them impossible to catch I can't turn off the AR. Fix it.
Not working 1/5
After new update I only get a black screen
Best Pokémon game arround since put on a cell phone 4/5
The problem is this game lags when you sign in only problem need to be fixed other that that
New update had made the experience even worse 1/5
By Xopher TAF
EDIT 2: version 1.91.2 has made catching awful. Even with AR switched off, catching still uses an “shaky cam” AR mode in a white instead of the stationary version. This is completely obnoxious to work with and makes catching a terrible experience. Not a single part of this game in this current state is worthwhile.
EDIT: I would recommend checking the ratings before any update. Currently works, but you’re gambling with each update.
A fun time waster, but the recent update makes it crash during the starting load up. Pretty unfortunate timing, but these types of errors and game breaking glitches have been pretty common, it’s sad to say.
iPhone Xs Max support? 1/5
Cannot open on iPhone Xs Max. Still cannot open with latest update.
Bug fixes? 1/5
Most recent update broke the app. It no longer loads without crashing 15 seconds after opening.
Finally works again 4/5
The second 10/15 update (listing “bug fixes”) finally works for me!
Login issues 1/5
Can’t login in. Unable to authenticate.
Works once in a blue moon, then doesn’t work again.
Updates aren’t fixing this
Update broke AR view. 1/5
On iOS 12.0.1, with app Privacy Permission disabled for camera use, if you go to add a friend and scan QR code and then go catch a Pokémon, you get a white/washed out background on the catch screen. There’s no place to turn off AR mode in Settings either. Seems to be a defect in latest app update.
During afternoon times on the weekend when raid times are high, login ability via PTC is a f**king joke! Fix your servers and network load issues!!!!!!
Almost constant GPS Signal Not Found errors since last update. Happens if you pull down Notification Center or Control Center. 👎
Can’t log into PTC account since last update to app. Way to go devs. 👎
I’m in the middle of the county 5/5
Could you add something that we could do without walking around? Kinda in a dry area for pokestops
1.91.1 is worst 1/5
By Ang bo
Catching Pokémon is bad now with the update
Monster for phone resources 1/5
A few new bugs are introduced in every update. Why don't you just stop your development and keep with one of the old versions which are more stable?
Not happy with newest update 3/5
By Mary E Moo
You don’t have the cartoony background anymore. Even with augmented reality turned off you HAVE to move the phone around to “find” the Pokémon on the white background. Inconvenient.

For the longest time, Apple Watch app did not work but with the newest update just rolled out, my pikachu and my wrist are BFFs again. Woo hoo
Crashes on login/launch 1/5
Still 1.91.2 crashes on launch. Won’t run on iPhone X’s max. Maybe some time this year I’ll be able to play again.

Not loading properly

I deleted the app and redownloaded it. I am all good now.

This update broke the app on the iPhone XS Max. Now when it loads, I get a pitch black screen. It’s unplayable.
Hangs/crashes on startup 1/5
Hangs/crashes on startup
PLEASE BRING POKEMON BRICK BRONZE BACK ON ROBLOX 1/5
PLZZZZZZ I REALLY LOVE PBB ;( IT WAS MY ONLY GAME TO PLAY AND IT HAD TO BE TOOKEN AWAY....PLZZZZZ LET THEM KEEP IT
Update messed things up 2/5
Had an update today and now my game is freezing after I catch a Pokémon, I keep losing poké balls I haven’t used, keeps dropping gps signal, and telling me I’m “going too fast” when I’m sitting on my couch.
I can’t open my app. It just keeps crashing on me 1/5
I don’t know what’s going on. But I’ve tried removing and downloading the app again. Still it doesn’t work for me .. it just kept crashing on me
Great until 1.91.1 1/5
By Carpe Cookies
Bugtastic. Freezing after capture of wild Pokémon. Solid white background like it is trying to load AR when it is not enabled.
By 🇯🇵Otaku 28🇯🇵
Every time I start the app my iPhone X screen just turns black. Doesn’t crash or restart just stays black.
Was fine, now freezes when in catching animation. 1/5
Why did you break it?
Won’t load on my Xs Max.
Update 1.91.1, black screen 1/5
By Terra O
Update to the review below: Still getting the black screen upon loading, even after the clean install. Way to go, Niantic!
It seems having to do a clean install is now the norm after every major update. With Update 1.91.1, the screen went black and the game froze as soon as it was loaded. Tried several times, rebooted the phone, nothing. Deleted and reinstalled the game, it works. Why does this keep happening?
I am a dedicated Level 40 player. I love the game. The consistently bug ridden app, however, will never earn more than one star from me until all the bugs are fixed rather than new (and worse) ones being added with each update.
Cannot open since last update 3/5
Device: iPhone Xs max.
They broke the game entirely 1/5
The game freezes up constantly. Right before a major release they break the game. Apple needs to hold them far more accountable. This is absolutely ridiculous. Shame on you, Niantic!
New update 1/5
Due to the newest update, it strictly requires an vr connection for some stupid reason and can not be turn off. Due to this feature, I am unable to catch any Pokémon, thus making the literally pointless
Login issues 1/5
By login issues cap personal
Constantly have login issues where I can’t login in time.
Game keeps freezing after update today WTH 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻
Why isn’t there gen four already 5/5
Why can’t you just add generation
I would really like to sort friends by reverse order, or better yet, by recent. Thanks.
Love the game if it would work 2/5
I’m on an iPhone Xs Max and I’ve tried reinstalling and all the “work arounds” to get the game to open but it always just crashes when I get past the load screen. Would love to keep playing but I am literally not able to
Latest Patch is completely broken 1/5
Latest patch is completely broken AR mode is Locked ON - can only catch in AR mode and the pokes don’t come out of the grass
