So a year playing it and things have gotten better. Like, gen2, new items, the ability to evolve certain characters you couldn't before. I loved how the gyms worked before. Not a huge fan on these "new gyms." I liked how they use to be. Now you barely make coinage and makes it seem like Niantic is forcing players to actually spend money on their app. I still play, but just to get pokemon now. The gyms aren't really that fun anymore.

I just now started playing after following the initial hype but not having a compatible phone at the time. I have been having a fun time collecting Pokemon and visiting various landmarks in my city. I would like to see a more social aspect to communicating with friends and making new ones at some point. Maybe some kind of messenger app to accompany the main app? Also trading and PvP battles somewhere down the road would be nice too! Full Review

Review: 10/25/2016: Still waiting on the trainer battles and trading you promised us, Niantic. Lowered to 3 stars. ORIGINAL REVIEW: Love the game, and the server stability has been very good despite the massive amount of users accessing the game. Looking forward to Niantic and their partners to get things stable, and I can't wait to see what updates come further down the line. Full Review
Forrest Ferris Published date: July 19, 2017
Over one million negatives and growing. Congratulations. Loose balls too easily. Need to buy more because it's difficult to get free ones. Foreground app only and will not run in the background. Means that it drains battery quickly and I can't hatch eggs during my runs. And to others that rate it lower stars, like me, App developers don't care. Full Review
Zeri Blackheart Published date: July 20, 2017
This is a fun app, that gets you out of the house, and exploring your neighborhood. Even if you arent a fan of pokemon, you can have fun catching these cute critters and discovering historic landmarks, and parks, and other things right outside your window you may have never noticed before. Fun for the whole family too! Its a great way to get the kids (or grandkids) out for a nice walk. As for the game itself, it had a rocky start but it has found its feet and there are very few If any issues. Full Review
Sudarshan Pardeshi Published date: July 20, 2017
Bravo Update Guys ... There is nothing like update ... Your developer need to really work on increasing pokestop around country and specially in India ... I really like PG but i dont have enough time to switch city for your game ... You did great job in urban area... Now its time to Update ruler area too... Coz there is no fun in MOD version ... HOPE YOU CONCERN USERS SUGGESTIONS . Full Review
Abishek Kumar Published date: July 20, 2017
It's a futuristic game, it asssumes you have data service all over the place, which is not true. It has been twice now I was standing at a raid battle but couldn't join, it is very difficult to play it legit, so would be leaving this game. One more thing please provide joystick, because half of them are using it why shouldn't we use it then. Full Review
Wesley Grant Published date: July 19, 2017
Fun game on enjoy playing with the family. Niantic has royally jacked up the reward system for keeping Pokemon in the gym. Now you're only rewarded for your inability to keep Pokemon in the gym... and no more then 50 gold a day. Great new update to remotely feed your Pokemon but what's the point? Full Review
Kimberley Cass Published date: July 20, 2017
Okay, so a year on and it's definitely a better app. In a way, I wish they had waited a year for release and just brought it out now - the hype may have lasted longer. Regardless I enjoy the game, it adds extra motivation to go for a walk when you don't have anywhere particular to go, and it is a pretty big thrill when you catch something rare (Polygon. Hell yes). But for God's sake, it needs some sort of sister app or... 'poke tracker' or something so you can run it in the background. I hate that if I want to go for a genuinely long walk I won't use it because of the battery drain. Full Review
Gerald Gonzales Published date: July 20, 2017
Connection has slowed down a lot. As soon as you open the app, it would load for a quick second then it goes and reloads after a minute or so. Network errors a lot during battles /raid. Unfair spawns as well, depends on what area you are. You get a lot of crappy pokemon if you're not in a major city. Full Review
Angelina Crumpler Published date: July 20, 2017
Awesome game. My husband and I both play. Just wish eggs hatched quicker and that starters and rare pokemon spawned more often in Alaskan rural areas. Been playing since the day it came out and still haven't found any of the Chancey evelutions. But otherwise a great game. Gets me out and moving :) Full Review
Noah Shannon Published date: July 20, 2017
Stop trying to be somthing your not, this is Pokemon Go, not Ingress. I started playing this game because i loved Pokemon, not because i loved Ingress. Please think about how the people who live in small towns outside of the city who rarly see other Pokemon go players. People like us will probably never get a legendary because there aren't enough players for us to fight the raid bosses that are out now. Let alone a legendary.. Full Review
Tyler Lucas Published date: July 20, 2017
How am I supposed to find any pokemon if I can't tell where to go. You give me 15 minutes to catch a pokemon and I have no clue where and no one else can tell either because they don't even show the same pokemon. Get it together. This used to be a fun game. Now it's just frustrating Full Review
Pug Dud Published date: July 20, 2017
I think it's great best game I have ever played. The,Pokemon are awsome same as the gym battles. Every thing looks great in the game. There are so many Pokemon in the game. But I realy wish you could see the other Pokemon go players on Screen so you trade with them I'm shure it's to come in a update sone unough.i love it I think I'll give it a 100 out of 10 Full Review
Andrew Rice Published date: July 19, 2017
It's a great game but there are a ton of bugs still like the one I've been fighting with for 3 days. It says that it's unable to retrieve my game data but I did a couple of methods to see if my account was banned which it's not because I tried making a new account with my old username it said username not available over all it's a great game I'm slowly becoming disappointed in it Full Review
Jazmin Napoles Published date: July 20, 2017
I have noticed it still heats up my phone and drains the battery too fast unlike other playing apps. Also there are like no poke stops or gyms in Bakersfield at least not west on Panama Ln which sucks, probably doesn't help the entire neighborhood is new. Full Review
William Jewett Published date: July 20, 2017
Still has too many issues. Sitting in my house and switching apps apparently means I have exceeded speed limits and mons disappear. Then they take forever to reappear. Your efforts to prevent people from playing while driving are excessive and detract from normal gameplay. Login takes forever. Gyms force crash frequently. Full Review
Itachi Uchiha Published date: July 19, 2017
Nice texts. Graphics run smoother. Daily bonuses are pretty cool. I just don't like the new speed cap for pokestops. I'm fine with having to walk for Pokemon and eggs and buddy KM, but sometimes I have to drive around to find pokestops to fill up that 1000 spaces in my bag. Please change. Full Review
Nick Jacobson Published date: July 19, 2017
The app crashes a lot more than Niantic's other game, Ingress. I would have liked to see a more social experience like the aforementioned game. Pokemon Go can easily be played lone wolf and playing socially doesn't seem to have much of an impact like it does with Ingress. Full Review
wandering ferrets Zeke Brophy Published date: July 20, 2017
I love this game. but to things I would love to see change please is reigon locked Pokemon... Maybe make a rare egg that holds the reigon Pokemon and I would love to battle my mates in one on one fights and also love to trade my Pokemon with others and items thank you for your time and constantly updating bugs and fixes it shows what dedication you developers have :) Full Review
Matt Burkett Published date: July 20, 2017
Exciting game. Same problems a year later. Why must I drive 25 miles to catch pokemon or encounter more than 1 or 2 pokestops within a mile. Still no background capability? Do you own stock in pocket chargers as well? Disappointing for such a large sum of cash Niantic has taken in piggy backing Pokemon. Full Review
Eon Drache Published date: July 20, 2017
Updated review for 0.69.0 on Android. App is riddled with bugs on the galaxy s8 to 4 loading bars on the loading screen to actually being unable to click the journal button at all. It doesn't exist on the s8. An app the size of pokemon go I would think it would be fully functioning on the Galaxy S8. Full Review
Published date: July 20, 2017
This is an amazig game developed extremely well and can go very far. But one thing i can possibly recommend adding in a chat in game where people can get hold of other players within probibly within 1km away from each other so that if help is needed on a raid or anything . You are able to request assistance from nearby players Full Review
Tanya Giaimo Published date: July 20, 2017
Latest update that allows you to "feed berries" to a Pokemon if you're not at the gym DOES NOT WORK. That is ridiculous. I was excited for the update given that I have Pokemon in gyms far away. Doesn't work so update is pointless. Can't fix your bugs before the release? Full Review
Published date: July 20, 2017
This is a great game for those who love pokemon and love (or hate) exercise. Very easy in game controls and settings which any one can get used to. Regular events also help keep the game interesting and now with the soon to be added legendary pokemon, there is more than one reason to. 'Get up and Go'. Full Review
Shawn Sheppard Published date: July 19, 2017
Unless you are in a big city, pokestops are few and far between. Same with pokemon, and the ones you see are always the same variety. Can't trigger the few pokestops there are if commuting by bus, taxi, train, carpool passenger, or subway, since "you're going too fast". Same goes for pokemon. I expected more from choosing a pokemon to walk with, maybe some AR mode with ability to take photos, but it's just an over glorified distance counter, one that doesn't count if commuting. Still lacks ability to trade pokemon and items or see others on your map so you can battle or even know they are playing just to say hi. Full Review
Nehemiah Bordello Published date: July 20, 2017
I always loved Pokemon but do you know when you might add trainer battles? It would be convenient if there was a nearby button or a search bar to search for you friends and just send a battle invite. Sending items and berries would also be a good feature for newcomers or people starting over so more experienced players can help them out. These are just my opinions the game is great already! Full Review
Vivien Dyer Published date: July 20, 2017
Super laggy the last couple of updates. Can't afford to pay for a new phone just for this game, and my current phone can no longer handle it apparently. Shame because I walked a lot getting to level 33 on this device. Clearing cache multiple times in a half hour is not relaxing or enjoyable. Full Review
wayne howard Published date: July 19, 2017
The latest update where you can feed pokemon your berries from far away does not work. When I click on go to gym it comes up with network error. The updates only been active for less than a day. Surely a highly successful Company would go through bugs and glitches before release........... Full Review
Himanshu Sharma Published date: July 19, 2017
Taking a hell lot of time to log in into your game these days. Everything has changed in this game. No one can catch pokemon while in car or any vehicle. If u do like this.. then one day i will surely be going to uninstall it. Full Review
Jamie Williams Published date: July 20, 2017
Can you please fix the issue that has constantly plagued this game that when I open it, it turns down the music on my phone (I use Spotify) to where it's nearly inaudible even at max volume. Then since my volume is maxed out, when my screen times out or I switch to a different app, I'm nearly deafend. I still miss the footprint system, but I can understand why that's been moved away from. Full Review
Richie Olivares Published date: July 20, 2017
The server still lags. Keep getting server errors. New update doesn't work. Can't send berries to PokÃ©mon from PokÃ©mon options. I have a PokÃ©mon Go Plus and it has connection errors. I do everything to make it work and still nothing. Works for 5 min and then doesn't work the entire day. Nice work but you still have a way to go. Full Review
Published date: July 20, 2017
There seems to be a small bug with the new control screen. There's a new option for Pokemon that are assigned to gyms that simply says go to gym. Unfortunately, this button doesn't seem to work on my phone. Can't say for anyone else I have a Galaxy amp Prime if that helps the developers figure out the problem Full Review
Justine Lapolla Published date: July 20, 2017
Again, takes forever to log in. Also, it's extremely buggy- gyms are constantly giving me the error message, the game will freeze upon logging in or when clicking on gyms, and the frame rate is terrible because of how badly optimized it is. Raids are fun though. Full Review
Jenni Kelly Published date: July 20, 2017
Occasional freeze when catching pokemon. Server connection problems. Gym crashes. Too easy to get kicked from gym without getting any coins. Cant do raids with partner because level too low so we dont go out as much. Full Review
robert grime Published date: July 20, 2017
A game definitely worth getting. It contains some great stuff, like how they styled the gym battles, or how they made it so you know where a pokemon in your vicinity is, or how you don't even have to buy pokeballs. Now I'm kinda rambling, so the point is; get this game, and you won't regret it. Full Review
Jonathan Thompson Published date: July 20, 2017
Niantic has improved their overall gameplay which has helped a lot of people. I still wish they could make it so the app counts your steps even when the app is off. The Pokemon Go Plus has it's limits and often disconnects. The raids are a nice touch but wish there was a place to sell our old potions to get coins. Full Review
Noble Lumpkin Published date: July 19, 2017
I figured I would give it another go. The servers is stable from last time.. They somewhat fixed the tracking system. But now let's look at what is wrong... THE LAG! Last time, I could play it when the servers was up.. (same phone) but now the game is so laggy, I can't even play it. Takes 5 mins just for the game to log in. Yeah.. I will up it by 1 star but that's cause of the effort of trying to fix the tracking system. I guess I will try later. Full Review
Greg Jones Published date: July 19, 2017
Gyms are now basically meaningless before u could keep pokemon on and gather coins now i have to wait to claim them when my pokmeon gets kicked out i had a cp 36 sunkern and it stayed in a gym for 4 daysbefore someone took the 3 pokemon before me out incense is still pretty useless in 30 minutes i get 400 murkrow.. still no way of tracking anything and. Cant use any maps for fear and ban Full Review
Ryan Jeffcoate Published date: July 19, 2017
Love the idea. Needs more home game play. Not much to do if not out and about. Maybe a trading section might work with others in the area. Take some more inspiration from the original game boy games and incorporate it. a good concept but my battery is taking a beating and phone is on charge when i am not out walking. Pokemon arr aleays the same ones. Full Review
