Everything is great except that when listening to my favourite music and the app is on, the music automatically drops volume to about less than half. If we can opt out of this, you'd have more of my support. I have no issues on Ingress, your flagship game. I only have an issue with PokÃ©mon GO. And to all detractors about exercise, the game doesn't cause you to exercise more. You exercise whether you play the game or not. It's our decisions in life that makes us what we become, including our attitudes which translates to mental fortitude. "I think therefore I am" is a good representation of this. Full Review

I think the new "SUPER INCUBATOR" is just another example of this game becoming pay to win. I played this game almost every day for a year but stopped shortly after the gym update. They started giving half the amount of free coins a day from gyms and started charging players to play more than one raid a day. With the Raids giving the easiest and best chance of getting the best Pokemon, this game now sucks and is dead to me. Niantic is not sucking another penny out of me. That's my two cents. This game is now dead to me. GL Full Review
John Barlow Published date: September 15, 2017
I'm gonna make something clear; I love this game. I think it's great and all the more reason to go outside more. BUT... It completely sucks in suburban areas. There's no pokestops, almost no gyms, and crappy and sparce pokemon. They really need to ramp up the suburban areas considerably, because I don't like to walk 3 miles just to get a ton of pokemon and items every day. Full Review
Howard Platz Published date: September 21, 2017
The game mechanics are easy to adapt to. Love that the 90's gen just got a morale boost from the game everyone loved as a kid revamped to capture new generations and old. Still a few bugs, trading and battling still not available... bummer, Pokemon was built on trading. Let's go Niantic Full Review
Nate Calderon Published date: September 16, 2017
It gets me to exercise wich I don't really like doing.I also want to know which team is more popular I'm on Team Instinct. Can you fix the bug with the AR I can't stand not being able to use it anymore. Love this game can't wait for all gens to be released oh and when are you going to add legendary pokemon. Full Review
Bunny P Published date: September 21, 2017
Never calculates distance correctly I should not have to walk 10 miles to hatch a 5km Pokemon egg I shouldn't even have to walk 5 miles to hatch a 5km Pokemon egg. The app itself takes way too long to load especially when you know there's going to be a pop-up that you HAVE TO click in order to actually make the app work. Full Review
Hani Farrukh Published date: September 13, 2017
Even through many updates the game hasn't been fun anymore especially legendary raids only got zapados through after 10 attempts of failure. Wasn't able to catch the other legendaries. Even now summer over and back in college can't attend the Mewtwo raid cuz it's exclusive. False advertising showing everyone catch Mewtwo in the trailers. I don't even play anymore only waiting for a big update which has never came. Full Review
Binodkumar Thiyam Published date: September 18, 2017
It is different fron real pokemon, It will have been better if we battle before catching a pokemon. There are not enough gym and pokestop. The game is confusing and waste lot of time . We travel a lot and its use less since the km is not appropriate and my buddy is walking beside me . And the incense it suppose to lures pokemon near me but but none apper in other time Pokemon pokrmon are always near me .what is the of incrnse it it doesn't do it work. Hate it Try to improve it. Full Review
Christopher Miller Published date: September 22, 2017
Showed promise of turning a corner. Then you showed me why I left the game originally. Either right as I am about to start a gym fight and sometimes in the middle of one or even Raids, the avatar runs off and cuts me off mid-fight. Your GPS system is GARBAGE. Fix and you just might save you some players Full Review
Dog Friend Published date: September 20, 2017
If it weren't so involved and engaging, nobody would tough out the numerous bugs and server failures. Niantic really needs to work on their qc. UPDATE JULY 30: Niantic has only made some minor fixes but new ones keep cropping up suggesting lazy debugging or understaffing. Either way; come on Full Review
Eon Drache Published date: September 14, 2017
App has bugs that have affected raids since they came out. If you error out when an egg is hatching you lose the egg, incubator charge and the pokemon that hatches. We have a gym here no one can raid at as everyone errors out. Losing their pass. This is akin to literally stealing. Developers do NOT care. Full Review
Virginia Filipe Published date: September 16, 2017
So right now I can't even play because the game doesn't seem to register my location. 3 days without being able to catch a Pokemon or go to a pokestop or gym. When the game works I love it, problem is all he glitches that are all too common Full Review
Nick Simmons Published date: September 15, 2017
Niantic please listen. Used to play all the time despite being of an older generation. Almost completed gen 2. However, this timed raiding gym system means I can no longer play in reality. Before I could fit PokÃ©mon Go around my life/work etc. Now the random time raids occur during work hours etc which is hopeless. I cannot fit my life around PokÃ©mon Go, it needs to be something I can play when I have time. PokÃ©mon Go needs to be playable at all times not just when a raid time occurs. Full Review
Roy Lemi Published date: September 16, 2017
I HATE THAT IT LOWERS THE VOLUME OF MY MUSIC PLAYER. I play Ingress with my own music. Why can't I do the same here?! Grind away in a cycle of getting balls then using them to catch pokemon. Low level players doesn't stand a chance in gym gameplay. Unless you pay. Full Review
Amiibo4Life Published date: September 19, 2017
New problem: Now I frequently get constant network errors when trying to do a gym battle. When it happens, I can't get anywhere in the battle and I end up wasting healing items. Fix this asap niantic or you'll hardly deserve the one star that I have to give you. Full Review
Published date: September 23, 2017
Most glitches fixed so the game is good again. Like the gyms changes as it makes it much easier to defeat and take over a gym and earn coins, not so easy to defend though. Raids are good but I always get mon that are weaker than I already have. Need more time to defeat the bigger bosses though as I always seem to be the only one battling and lose out by only a few seconds. Full Review
Rainbow Art Cat Published date: September 18, 2017
Some graphics are pixelated, which looks bad. Overall a decent game. It definitely needs improvement and easier ways to get coins. I also think being able to battle other players would be great, other than at gyms of course. Update: The game has stopped working, it won't connect no matter what I do. Full Review
Jonathan Dixon Published date: September 16, 2017
You are theives Niantic. STRAIGHT UP VANDALS! Stealing time. Stealing Raid passes with glitches. Stealing Potions. Stealing Revives. You are aweful and should feel aweful. "Hey gather all your friends and try a legendary raid. Oh what? Rejoin battle? NOPE! GET REKT SON! RESTART APP. GOTO HELL POKEMON AND NIANTIC. YOU ARE ALL GARBAGE PEOPLE. Full Review
Julie Henry Published date: September 18, 2017
I will change my rating if you fix my problem. I try to log in and no keyboard shows up. I have played this on another device and I really like playing it but how in the world am I supposed to play it on MY device if it won't let me log in. Fix this please it's making me very angry Full Review
Kyle Robertson Published date: September 17, 2017
Still sucks. Game crashes when reviving or healing. Pokemon red and blue seemed to do that just fine and how long ago did they come out? You can't catch a pokemon on a "excellent" throw using an Ultraball but can catch that very same pokemon with a crappy throw and a regular pokeball. Figure it out Niantic! Full Review
KKcrazy04 Published date: September 21, 2017
Ok I understand this game is for walking but when you have to walk 5 miles with nothing around no pokemon no gyms and no pokestops it's annoying. Camp Pendleton needs more pokemon stuff there's very little stuff around and if I want pokemon I have to put an incense and only 2 to 3 pokemon show up out of the thirty minutes. But the most annoying thing is the network errors. Other that it's great and it's fun. Full Review
Melissa Baatz Published date: September 13, 2017
Been playing since the beta and have seen the game evolve into what it is today. The promo video has shown us what pokemon go could be only if the developers actually put their time into it. I would like to see ability to use the note phone stylus as a way to throw balls and catch pokemon. Also battery drain on android needs to be seriously liked at and fixed Full Review
Hrishikesh Bordoloi Published date: September 17, 2017
The game is good. But it sucks that we don't have a single gym or pokÃ©shop in our area. I live in Guwahati, Assam (India) and we rarely find any new pokÃ©mon. I've asked other players in from other parts of Assam and they face the same problem. Many of them have stopped playing for the same. It would be great if more pokÃ©mons, gyms and shops were added here. Full Review
Brett Pearse Published date: September 23, 2017
Its a really good game. But out in the country side there are only 3 pokie stops and only one gym. And when i walked 5hrs so around 23km, it only said 9km which didn't hatch my 10km egg. And there are no good pokemons as there are in the city. I really want to find more awesome and powerful pokemon. Full Review
Wyatt Delahunt Published date: September 19, 2017
Please fix EX raid invites. I've done over 100 raids and no invite, but I have a friend who's done 3 raids total, and 2 invites. Seriously!? What is your problem? If I don't play for a few months, are you going to give me a Master Ball to convince me to play again? Full Review
Si Bates Published date: September 16, 2017
Can we have yet another update to re-enable transferring the app data to SD? Transferring it to SD was re-enableed in the previous version. But, this update broke it agsin. The option is there, but it keeps giving a generic error message now. Again, it's not my SD card, I have a genuine 64GB Samsung Evo Plus. It is definitely the app itself causing the issue as I could transfer the previous version fine. And especially as every single other app with the option to move to SD works fine. This is the only app on my phone with this feature that it doesn't work. Full Review
Anand Sagar Published date: September 22, 2017
The new Ex-Pass thing is the worst thing niantic has done till now, what is the basis of giving ex-pass? It is pure luck and nothing. I do raida daily and am a very dedicated player but till now haven't got a single pass and there are many who got multiple passes, this is not fair. Niantic just want to make money and they do not care anything except that, by ginving ex-pases to sponsored gyms only it is proved now. Very bad. Full Review
Published date: September 17, 2017
Absolutely horrible. Bugs won't let me enter any sort of raid battle. I've tried everything I can think of to fix the problem but there's nothing I can do. Raids are 100 percent unplayable for me. I always get error 33. Niantic won't do anything about it so I'm stuck with a broken game. I'm so glad I've never spent money on this trash. Full Review
randy hughes Published date: September 15, 2017
Just too many variables that make the game just too hard to play.... Raids too hard and times to short or some locations not accessible ... More raid passes ... Need rewards if you fail to get a legendary monster .... Too many throw away monsters.... Make all monsters available to everyone, not just to those who live in or travel to certain locations..... Full Review
Dynz Clemente Published date: September 14, 2017
Pokemon does not leveled when left in gym? Also can you have any updates on how can we use a specific move by pokemon when battling? I mean whats the use of the move if we can't select it during battle? No update yet on how meny players in the area? No other thing to do except grinding (catching pokemon?) is this the extent of the game? Full Review
Joe Prajogo Published date: September 18, 2017
Improving, though this last version hangs occasionally, eg after remote berry feeding. It also remains that it would be nice if we can track distance covered under low power conditions; ie the way fitness trackers do. That way you also cater for us runners, who actually do cover long distances regularly. Would be an easy 5 star then. Oneplus one, marshmallow. Full Review
Samantha Hunter Published date: September 21, 2017
It could be a really cool app. Just don't understand how they think we can get 10-20 other people to help in a battle that's 3 or more difficulty. I think you should still be able to get the legendary pokemon by yourself. Not to mention the candy and rate you get it. I've been playing for a year now and haven't been able to evolve very many. Wish it was leveled by experience instead of candy like true pokemon games. Every time I try this again I find myself going back to pokemon red,yellow, blue, emerald or sapphire instead just to actually catch and evolve pokemon. Could be cool. Full Review
Kelly Lim Published date: September 15, 2017
Every single update getting worst and worst. The player become "black" like a shadow. The game automatically close during playing even when we are fighting in the middle of a raid. The legendary beast become harder to catch and no special items are given after we fought so hard. Please fix these problems and not to create more and more problems. Full Review
Kadah Published date: September 20, 2017
Location issues (stops moving or completely inaccurate despite GPS and network location both being working and accurate). Constant network errors and sync Indies. Massive battery hog and overheats phone. Countless bugs, many from beta. Cheating is extremely common, and since gym update, tolerated by many players, which is even worse than before. Full Review
Published date: September 19, 2017
One positive: great concept! Good way to bring people together in real life unlike a lot of video games these days! I appreciate that! One suggestion: Pokemon should slightly gain cp or experience when defeating gym pokemon. The catching aspect to pokemon has been nailed but the training aspect is not there at all. Stardust is a neat twist but it should coincide with training the individual pokemon. I'm not saying it should be easy to gain cp through battling, challenges are what create perseverance! To be honest though, this game looks like pokemon on the outside but it's not pokemon at all. If I created a game, it would be for the people, not myself. Always thinking of how i could benefit the player even at my own expense. Which unfortunately seems to be the case when maximum of daily coins and raid perks are diminished. It comes off to the player that the developer isn't all that interested in making a good game but making more money. Full Review
Philip mcgrath Published date: September 16, 2017
The servers suck and only at the worst of times. I was doing a raid with my gf and it wouldn't even let me in till 10 seconds after it started, and then it wouldn't let me attack for 10 seconds everytime I used a super. It all added up to not allow us to win the raid. Full Review
Shane Dillingham Published date: September 13, 2017
After getting around safetynet by using systemless root (because blocking all root users because some spoof is rather heavy handed) the game is ok. Niantic is definitely hard at work improving the game and with each new update it definitely shows. Hopefully we get trading soon. Full Review
Ryan Gravel Published date: September 17, 2017
Fix your s*it Niantic before you add more to this. I constantly receive "Network Error" when I'm trying to battle a gym, or "could not connect to server" in the middle of a walk. Did you guys ever play PokÃ©mon? Do you understand type weaknesses and immunities? When you get your act together, I'll change the rating back to a higher number, but for now, this glitchy, well meant but poorly executed game gets a 1. Full Review
Shyann Smith Published date: September 23, 2017
First I'd get kicked out of raids due to error, so I missed all.the birds. Then it started working after an update, caught a raiku. Now it's kicking me out of raids again since the "world hunger t-shirt" came out. Why does this keep happening? Would be great if it wasn't so glitchy. Full Review
Alucard Peach Published date: September 20, 2017
After the Sept 18, 2017 update- BARELY works. Force closes ALL THE TIME, gyms that I know are there AREN'T SHOWING UP, charged moves are RARELY working - but it depletes your charge anyway. Tapping gyms over and over before it opens - IF it opens without force closing the game. Glitchy, spinning pokeball of death almost constant, avatar going full blacked out. Oh! & PokÃ©mon show up and disappear - while I'm in the same spot. PLEASE FIX Full Review
