Login is disappointing to me 1/5
I have two accounts. I can’t remember. I forgot what’s my username. It won’t let me log in. I’ve been resetting my passwords/usernames.
It’s completely useless to me.
It’s so pointless just another app to track and record your personal info! You are trading personal information for useless Pokémon items. bewarrrreeeeee!
Sounds cool but... 1/5
It seems like there are never any events or anything in general that this app provides.
Can’t log in 1/5
because I have to log in to recover my username
Needs working on 1/5
The concept is pretty good based on the description on the official Pokémon site- otherwise this app needs fixing. There are little features or reason to keep the app on my phone at all. I guess I’m just waiting for some major update to come in that fixes everything. I’m not able to scan any of or at the very least import a photo I’ve taken of my QR codes. It’s really just missing a lot of stuff that it claims to offer (at least on my app)
Please fix so I can eventually re-evaluate with a better rating... 👏
A good idea, an easy to use function, but a worrisome issue… 3/5
By Strange Behaviour
This app has the potential to be a good way for people to get distribution event Pokémon in the future…
Any issues I have that other people have (and are vocal about) are expressed in their own reviews, so I won’t repeat what was said here. But, one issue I have that is bothering me, is something I didn’t have that big of a problem with the previous two generations of Pokémon games (besides the Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee games). That is the following;
“What about people (like me) who gets both/all versions of the games, but is only given one code to use?”
This has me really worried, as in the past for example, because I got a copy for Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, & Ultra Moon each, I got one code to use in all those games each.
I’ve hesitated to use codes I already got with Pokémon Pass because I got both/all versions of the games that can use the code, but I’m unsure if it’s restricted to only one game or can be used on all versions of the games you legitimately purchased and own.
To best alleviate this problem that’s preventing me from enjoying the Pokémon experience to the fullest, may I suggest a way that allows the app to recognize people who possess both Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee, or both Sword and Shield? Like using that Game Sync function where you have to put in your copy’s specific code down so the application can recognize that you are among the crowd that gets all versions and you want to have your mythicals, legendaries, special Pokémon on all versions of the games you own, without having to resort to using dubious methods to copy said Pokémon into that game?
I’d really like some clarity on this issue that’s been bugging me, and if it is what I’m afraid of, confirmation that in the future, an update or something to deal with people like me who gets all versions of the games? Because I know I’m not the only one who does the same thing…
This is bad when the stores don’t even put up the QR scan thing for it.
By carey hilliard's 24
Why log in?Why not full screen?Why won't it log in?Why all the weird stuff it wants me to buy?
The app just loads forever when opened.
More like “Pokémon Load” 1/5
Because all it does is load!
Horrible Experience! 1/5
I have endured a very disappointing experience in the search for the scan QR Code of Pokemon Sword & Shield’s Trainer Outfit.
Upon visiting 3 Walmart locations and calling 2 others miles away, I was told the display of the QR Code was destroyed by customers, the display was sold to a customer, and many which didn’t have the display.
I’ve wasted many hours driving to the locations, and ended up with nothing.
Why wasn’t this display of the QR code behind the glass of the video game section? This shows bad promotions for events like these. I’m very disappointed in this experience and I hope it can better itself in the future.
Do not log out! 1/5
If you log out of your trainer account from the app and log back in, you lose all data of codes and stickers you collected. Time spent going to stores I don’t normally shop at during specific days wasted all because the app couldn’t warn me my data would be lost if I logged out.
I want what I was promised! 1/5
When I try to get my codes, it says no codes available even though I never revealed the codes before that! I would totally be ok with changing the review if I was given both the solgaleo and Lunala like I was promised but that’s not gonna ever happen so...1 Star.
Reveal all codes immediately 1/5
Once you have successfully gotten the QR code "scanned" and have received code, REVEAL code immediately and as many times as you needed (up to three reveals) once the end date is past for the availability of the code; YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO REVEAL THE CODE! Even though you still have 60 days after the end date to input the code into the game. THIS Instruction is listed nowhere in the app!!!! You will not get the code!!!! This needs to be fixed!!!! I lost my codes because YOU MUST REVEAL CODES AT PICK UP. YOU DO NOT HAVE 60 DAYS FROM PICK UP.

The code didn’t work
Doesn’t work 1/5
Constant loading screen
can’t scan 1/5
By very triggered person
WHERE IS THE CAMERA BUTTON
Comepelted Events, Can’t Obtain Codes 1/5
The events so far using the app has been easy going. The only issue is when redeeming the codes where I was not able to redeem codes for 2/3 events though the event is posted as complete.
If this is the kind of thing that will be commonplace on this app, I won’t use it again and wouldn’t recommend it
Annoyed user 1/5
Garbage app, doesn’t work when you need it to.
Useless... so useless 🤮 1/5
By Island Life
The app is useless. It’ll load, but that’s it. Even with location settings properly enabled, the app fails to recognize when you’re at a store running a promotion. Completely missed the Best Buy Mewtwo promotion despite two store visits because the app never even gives you an option to scan the code. The troubleshooting steps mentioned in the app don’t work either. This is, frankly, pathetic. Way to go, Pokémon Company... 😨
Couldn’t get legendary because of confusing date 1/5
They should have the end date as the last date to get the Pokémon. The Shiny Solgeo and Shiny Lunala event ends on Nov. 11th, so personally it should still be available on Nov. 11th. It should expire Nov. 12th instead when it’s listed like this.
Please make it available until the end date and I’ll change my review.
This app is rigged 2/5
By FIX THIS APP THIS RIGGED
This won’t work and I try to put in everything write perfectly and my email and password won’t work right I did everything it told me to do so and I followed the rules to make a password and it never works I tried like 50 times and it still won’t work
Nothing good about it 1/5
First off, I had no idea this app existed until I was trying to receive a pokemon from a distribution. After trying to figure out how to get the pokemon for a bit an employee informed me of the app. I have very limited data and the free internet wasn’t good enough to even load the app store. I went home to try and figure it out.
After downloading the app, I set it up with my trainer account and it asked to read the updated terms of service. There was a box to check accepting to receive e-mail notifications from pokemon. I intentionally did not check this box as I absolutely do not want them sending e-mails to me as I already use other methods of keeping track new and upcoming events. A message came up telling me that receiving these e-mails is required to use the app.
At this point I decided I would just use it for the one distribution and the get rid of the app because I didn’t want to deal with that. I then found out that I had to use the location services on my phone to get the pokemon distribution to work.
I decided to see what else the app could do and on it’s own the only thing you can do is get “stickers” you can use to take photos with. That is all. And this is how they plan to do pokemon distributions in the future. I checked the reviews I advise sorting by recency. You’ll see how good this app is.
Garbage App 1/5
By Great Card Details!
No instructions, Shiny event had not expired but does not show, QR code emits nonsense which sends me back to Pokémon Pass app. (Pokémon Pass does not have a scanner as the poster dictates, went to a third party.)
Does not load. >:( 1/5
The app refuses to open, it is stuck on the loading screen. I’ve tried as much as I can and it doesn’t work.
Won’t Load 2/5
For some reason, I don’t know if I’m the only one, but mine will not load up on my phone. I have deleted the app so many times. And I don’t know if this has to do with me reseting my phone (forgot my password) or what, but it will not load no matter how hard I try.
Edit: I also just recently went to GameStop for the Sogalio and Lunala event. My father and I scanned the code. My father’s worked, but mine said it didn’t scan. What’s with that? I don’t understand what’s going on with mine.
What a horrible idea 1/5
Always leave it to GameFreak and The Pokemon Company to make something as awful and user-unfriendly as it can possibly be.
You have to be in the physical location of a participating store and then scan a QR code on an advertisement. What happens if they don’t have the advertisement up? Wasted trip, you can’t get the gift. What happens if they have the poster, but for some reason it’s not saying you’re in the proper location? Wasted trip, you can’t get the gift.
You also only get one code, per event. What happens if the event is for two pokemon (such as the event that’s current, as of writing)? You only get one. What happens if the event is for four games and you have all four? You get one code.
Somehow, every time they update how events work, they manage to make it even worse than the already previously horrible experience they managed to make. This version takes the cake. It’s the apex of terrible, which is par for the course, with GameFreak.
Who do I use this??? 1/5
The app won’t even load up at all I was stuck on a loading screen for an actual hour and it kept trying to load up but never did
Not Shiny Legendary for me... 1/5
By Moonlight SpringAqua
The GameStop people were also trying to help me, but after much resetting and Log Ins and Out, nothing. My phone is up to date and all, the app never detected me on the store despite maps knowing I was there. They should just have given the code cards like they used to.
No current events 1/5
Got an email about a Mewtwo at Best Buy promotion 11/4-14, went to the store and the App lists no current events. Been checking the app every day and nothing comes up. Deleted the app and reinstalled. Nada.
It let me do anything I want it back to card form
By Mr.E Boio
login issue where it says my password isnt up to the aqquirements and my gmail is all wrong. i want to have and use this but this is really annoying please fix it
No additional codes available 1/5
Went to Best Buy, scanned the code, hit reveal, then said no additional codes available. I didn’t get any code at all.
It tells me no more available codes 1/5
I got the app today had no problem logging in or having the location services. I went to Best Buy and GameStop to get the event QR code’s and got them and I can’t get the codes from them because it keeps telling me no additional codes available. I was very upset that I couldn’t reveal my codes for these events.
Tried to get this for my boyfriend. I scanned a QR code and it didn’t give me the code for the game.
Deserves no stars s 1/5
After updating the app, turning on cellular data, and connecting to WiFi and wasting 30 minutes the app still will not work.
I’ve used this app before and liked it but now it doesn’t work. When I open the app the loading screen pops up and doesn’t stop.
Doesn’t open 1/5
I tried opening the app and it hardly ever opens. And when I tried making an account, it wouldn’t let me put my email and said “email or password is incorrect”
Wasted my time 1/5
Thanks to this app I just wasted my time going to Best Buy to download Mewtwo only for the app not to even recognize that I was in Best Buy, so there was no way for me to even be able to scan the code. This really needs to be updated or something.
UPDATE!! Sounded fun but... 4/5
By kris noelle
App didn’t work at Best Buy on my my sons Android phone so I tried it on my Apple....still no go.
STORE WIFI WAS BAD, LOADED WHEN WE LEFT, WENT BACK AND IT WORKED PERFECTLY! EVEN GOT 3 CODES.
Won’t load 2/5
I love the idea of this app, however, it won’t load when I open it. Please fix this problem!
iPhone 7 problems 2/5
It won’t open on my iPhone 7!
Can’t log in 2/5
I have tried to log into Pokémon pass and it’s saying my trainer username or password is wrong and I am 100% sure it is correct. I don’t know if symbols are the problems since it’s now required to have symbols as part of the trainer club password. They need to fix the log in bad
Why do you have to be at GameStop to use the code??? 1/5
You can’t get the Pokémon unless you are at GameStop. This is stupid.
By Jackaroo meep
Broken App 1/5
Cannot get pass the opening loading screen these days. Deleted/reinstalled the app numerous times, but problem still occurs. When the app first launched it seemed like a fun concert, but truthfully not much is done with it. If it wasn’t for Nintendo reminder emails, I probably never touch this app since rewards are kind of limited. Hopefully they’ll fix this severe bug soon so many of us can get the Halloween event shinnies before it ends next month.
Poor quality 1/5
I can’t really even tell you much about the app. Because I can’t get past the login in screen. I try and try to sign up and it will not accept any of my email addresses. I am creating a brand new account. How exactly is there a problem with an email I have never used with this service before? My disappointment is immeasurable and my day is ruined.
Won’t open the camera 2/5
I went to Gamestop today for the Shiny Solgaleo and Shiny Lunala event, but the Pokémon pass app won’t prompt me to open the camera in the application. This is a big issue that needs to be fixed, because I can’t get these once and done Pokémon. And what’s the point of having an application that won’t work.
Fails to load fails to open 1/5
I had it during the Target event, in which it worked. Since then it has never updated for new events. It only said that there were no new events. When I deleted the app and downloaded it again, it would not open. Currently not working, so can’t get the Gamestop event. Extremely disappointed.
