This Game Is Awesome In Every Way. and the those who say we have to play this walking...But I Got A Solution for that... (To Niantic:This hack doesn't go over the t&c of Niantic, So Everyone can use it) -Just stay in your place And Walk about in your house..You will surely get around 12-15 Pokemon's a day...But that doesn't work on PokeStops or Gyms coz this is not compulsory that a PokeStops is near your house.

The game works fine except I can't play the game at all when I'm in the car. When my mom or whoever is driving around (I'm to young to drive) I can't be on Pokemon bc of the stupid "going to fast" and doesn't track any Pokemon or let me get any pokesros and the only time I have to play is to/ from school and wherever else I go. We can't just go and Pokemon hunt. Can you fix the issue so I can play while in the car? Full Review
Cassie Townsend Published date: January 7, 2018
The game is brilliant. Pokemon are cute and have fun animations. But it's only good when I'm not in my village. Otherwise I'm unlikely to see more than one pokemon a day and there's no pokemon stop for miles. If pokemon stops were less spread out in rural areas (my village is not rural BTW. It's slap bang between a main city and town and thats only 20 mins by car away. Plus it's on a main bus route) or wild pokemon appear more frequently then I would rate this game a 5 Full Review

The game is great the features are excellent but the only problem is, is that pokemon only show up in one spot I know you have to out and about to find them but it would be nice to be able to move my character in the pokemon world. And it would be nice to actually update the scenery as well so it's not just a grass land area. You need to add say like pokemon centres and contests and other building and characters you can bump into to talk to. But other than that it's a great game and I do love playing. Full Review

The last update from 2 weeks ago is causing the Pokemon collection list to loose it's scroll position after evolving or transferring a Pokemon. I've left bug reports on Niantics site that this makes it a hard user experience for people to play the game if this is not fixed. I'll change my rating if and when they debug this. Full Review
Nigel Miles Published date: December 27, 2017
A totally rewarding experience from an amazing franchise, however, there's so much untapped potential and some of us are just waiting to see some change. The maps need improvement, and pokestops should be spread all over and not just in the big cities. We also need Battle Towers where trainers can meet and duke it out against each other like in the classical games. Sooner updates of such will ensure player retention. The app takes too much time to restart and load though. Full Review
Peter Brennan Published date: January 9, 2018
As far as I am concerned, radars and maps (the things that Niantic doesn't want) make the game more fun. The ability to see where PokÃ©mon are gives everyone a chance to raise there animals the best they can. Gym leaders with 3000+ cp Dragonites could have better competition if other people were able to find something worth while. I live in a rural area where Pidgeys and Ratattas are the best I can get. Yes, I can go to a "nearby" city...but it's not like I can use the map to find a Blastoise and drive. Full Review
Roris norris Published date: December 26, 2017
Would be a 5 star if you could control your character at least within a 1 mile radius and cruise around and catch pokemon. This game more so applies to kids because of this factor alone. Its a good game and i still hop on from time to time but with busy schedual i cant really do much outside. So inside with controls to be able to run around with my character at least a mile outside of my starting position would make this game playable way way more often. Just sayin. This game needs a little fixing to make it appeal to the older crowd even further. Full Review
Tirthankar Das Published date: January 3, 2018
I am in level 28 and have registered 314 pokemon in my pokedex. I have been playing the game since 10/01/2017.The legendary pokemon are awesome. I have caught RAIKOU , SUICUNE , ENTEI , ARTICUNO , ZAPDOS , MOLTRES , LUGIA , HO-OH and GROUDON.Only a few requests to Niantic.... 1. Please make MEWTWO raids more widespread around the world. 2.Please release MEW and CELEBI raids . Full Review
Mishelen M Singh Published date: December 25, 2017
Brilliant game. I would have recommended releasing one on one battling and trading before launching gen 3 though. And the screen shifting back to the top of the page after unfavoriting and transferring pokemon is quite annoying along with the motivation of pokemon in gyms decreasing too quickly. Its not challenging enough. Please fix. But overall keep it up though. Epic game. Enjoy it thoroughly :) Full Review
Carson Lamphear Published date: December 22, 2017
Love the game! Even though its dying to most, I would still rate it one of the best games I ever played. One thing I think would make the game better: MAKE IT EASIER TO GET POKEBALLS!!! especially ultra and great balls. I keep finding myself with zero pokeballs and then a freaken 918 CP arcanine shows up(actually happened). Plz take this into account. Great Game that keeps getting better! Full Review
David G. Rhodes Published date: January 1, 2018
I walk for an hour every morning, and take my game with me. It doesn't stop me from enjoying the flora and fauna, but it is a fun addition to my morning. My wife and our kids and grandkids all play, and it's something to kick off conversation, as well as meet new players as we walk around or connect for raids. Great fun!! Full Review
Noor Mohamed Published date: January 7, 2018
Hi Niantic, what are you thinking! I'm out of pokeballs and I don't have any coins! Check my location, my location is kilakarai, ramanathapuram, tamilnadu, india. There are no gyms and no raid battles! I have only one pokestop to spin and I get only about 10 pokeballs everyday! How do I play? without anything except one pokestop! My Username is Noor00786123 in Pokemon trainer club! S**t! Add some! You f***!!! Then I'll put 5 stars. Full Review
Charlotte Hookins Published date: December 20, 2017
Love it! Really good game, very addictive. Great features added with the gyms and raids etc. Love the ongoing updates with new gen of PokÃ©mon. Gets your steps up as well so can't complain there! I think this is better for people who live in the city due to the amount of pokestops, gyms, and the tracking system being linked to pokestops so if you live in a more rural area it's a lot harder as there's less pokestops about and you have to keep driving to places of interest to top up on everything. Also, when it's refreshing, sometimes it takes time and you end up with a blank nearby list with no PokÃ©mon around you for a little while before it all loads. Hopefully this is something that gets improved! Full Review
Lisa Published date: January 5, 2018
Can you PLEASE add some options to the settings to ease the amount of resources the game uses? ie: Turn off animation of pokemon in inventory? Option to turn off animation when evolving pokemon? Or just general lower graphics options? *The only recent issue is after transferring a Pokemon the screen moves back to the top and I have to scroll all the way back down to the position I was in. This is a major pain since my Pokemon inventory keeps growing longer. I sure hope you have better layout coming in the future or at least make it hold your position again... Looking forward to more updates. Thanks :) Full Review

Ex raid system is broken. We can barely get enough people together for a legendary raid in my town, and haven't received ex raid passes since after the change to how they're distributed. Need to be automatically triggered at every park and should be able to shared your pass with a friend so people aren't left out who actually enjoy playing. Full Review
Mike Murphy Published date: January 3, 2018
Error (29) whwn battling gyms. Cant do ANYTHING Can you make it so that when a pokÃ¨mon on a gyms cp turns red, can they return when reaching 0 CP as many people on my team don't feed berries and im the only one that does and my berries' stack depletes very quickly. Full Review
Mitsuki Maigo Published date: December 29, 2017
I love this game, I've been a loyal player since it first came out, but now for some reason I can't get the game to stay on longer than 5 seconds before it closes itself. Please either fix this or someone tell me how to fix it. I just got a new phone, is it perhaps non compatible with my phone? Full Review
Published date: December 31, 2017
Its awesome BUT!!! Id really like if the makers of pokemon go would concider a update where players can actually battle against each other and like rewards can be some stardust, XP and some candies coz some pokemon are hard to come buy and to evolve. I also saw something mentioning trading which i believe would also be a excellent adition to the game. Hope this review is read and hopefully taking in cause i think alot of players would like this suggestion. But good game Full Review
T Zero Published date: December 29, 2017
Great game. Glad a lot of things were fixed in this update. Don't have Any problems at all anymore here for now. Just find it strange that iOS gets Apple watch & AR+ supporr. While Android users even on galaxy s8 don't have Android wear support or any new AR features.. Full Review
ParadymShift Published date: December 25, 2017
Galaxy S8+ with latest Android version. Authentication failed when I try to login with Google. I made an account with Pokemon, but still get authentication failed message with no advice for how to solve. If I type the wrong password it says the credentials are wrong but the right one is the same authentication failed error. So, for my phone, this is the most useless app. It's only good for a login screen. Full Review
Marsha Liza Jumalon Published date: December 30, 2017
Game is ok. New pokemeons are frequently added. I just hate the recent update. The list goes back to the top of the list during evolution and tranfer of pokemon. I really hope that you can fix then problem in your next update. I've been playing for more than a year and hope to complete all the pokemons. If you can make more available all the pokemons in the field and in eggs, it would be extra fun!! Full Review
Clay Doh Published date: January 6, 2018
Great updates! Suggestion...include an algorithm that awards free pokeballs over a dormant period of time or specifically when a trainer is zero balance on pokeballs. This can be useful when the trainer is unable to access a pokespot or has no pokecoins to purchase items. It will increase retention in my opinion. The type of pokeball spawned can be relative to the level of the trainer or other relevant factors such as activity. Let's go Niantic! I know it's not unreasonable. Full Review
Colton Byrn Published date: January 14, 2018
It is an amazing game. I love that it let's you get out and meet new people. One thing that really needs to be added is a trade system between players. The only bug is when you transfer evolve or favorite a pokemon it takes you back to the top of your list. Once that's added and bug is fixed 5 stars. Full Review
Heather Smithson Published date: December 20, 2017
Update: when powering up Pokemon, the list takes me back to the top when exiting out of a Pokemon's profile page. This is quite annoying. I'd like to keep scrolling down from where I was last, not from the top over and over again. Original: Niantic, please up the drop rate for potions and revives! Hardly any drop from stops anymore. Raids don't drop much either. Max of 3- 9 hyper potions and only a few revives. As someone who loves to raid and partake in gyms, I need potions and revives. I have two full pages of Pokemon that need healing, but can't do a thing about it. The catching event is over, so please stop the massive pokeball drop rate. I'd really appreciate it. Tons of players in my area feel the same. I love this game and wanna keep participating, but I need the resources to do so. Full Review
Ikmal Ahmad Published date: December 29, 2017
as for the recent update, my gps is broken and i cannot participate to raid groudon. and the most irritating part is, whenever i transfer pokemon to professor, the page scroll up automatically. for example, after i transfer or put favorite mark on makuhita, the screen will automatically scroll up to the very beginning of the list (abra) and i have to scroll down again to transfer other pokemon. this might look like a simple problem but it is very annoying. please fix this. thank you.

I'm tired of trying to evolve Eevee, to only get jolteon mostly and then vaporeon and Flareon. What happened to the new ones that came out? Can you please fix that. It's getting old. I know it's not a big deal, but it's getting annoying now. And do shiny magikarp even exsist? Full Review
lover squirrel Published date: December 30, 2017
There is a gym glitch whereby once I put a pokemon in the gym becomes neutral and it allows another player of an opposite team to claim it. It is unfair as nobody was even fighting the gym and MY POKEMON CAME BACK FAINTED. I wasted countless potions and revives as it keeps happening to me everytime I put a pokemon into a gym. Please resolve this issue and I will rate it back 5 stars. Full Review
TheLavaCreeper Published date: January 2, 2018
Too many bugs - Its a great game but there are just too many bugs stopping me from rating 5stars. The one I found most annoying is where the camera locks after exiting a gym. Please fix this issue and I will rate 4 or 5 stars Full Review
Avroix Published date: January 5, 2018
When has there ever been a time where this app worked perfectly? Since day one, this app has had a myriad of issues; the most recent being the scrolling problem, as well as the shoddy connections to the Go Plus. It's not even worth it to buy the accessory anymore, as half the time it doesn't pick up anything; and that's assuming it connected in the first place. So disappointed. Full Review
Brock hoyle Published date: January 7, 2018
Ex raid system is terrible. Bring some transparency to it, so we know what qualifies us for it. There's no reason it needs to be a big secret. If all you want is people to spend money just say you have to do 20 raids a week. Get it figured out please, it is very frustrating. Full Review
Diego Torres Published date: December 21, 2017
While I understand the theory that it should help keep cheaters at bay, in practice it's pointless. There are already ways to cheat the system and hide the root, which cheaters obviously will be using. As for me, a rooted user for the sake of Android customization, and who has never cheated on PokÃ©mon Go, I am now prevented from playing. All they are damaging are the non cheating players. Terrible move on a long list of bad decisions from Niantic. Full Review
Nikki Criss Published date: December 20, 2017
Thank goodness for gen 3 pokemon and the new weather system. Both make going out and hunting much more enjoyable. My only complaint is that the game makes it impossible to find water pokemon even when it's pouring rain outside. I searched from morning to night in the rain and only found woopers. Full Review

Yeah horrible customer service. Keep getting GPS sigbal not found they tell me its no my account its my device. Well ita not my device now they refuse to help so i have to constantly log in and out just to play 3 minutes of the game Full Review
Phil Estelle Published date: December 20, 2017
Game crashes or freezes pretty much every day. The Raid system, which is the main endgame mechanic, is shaky at best. During busy times, if more than 25 to 30 people are at a given gym, it becomes unstable and kicks people out randomly, thus wasting raid passes that people pay good money for. For a game that should support thousands of people concurrently, this is unacceptable . The EX Raid system is hopelessly broken. Do not waste your time or money on this game Full Review
don cagle Published date: December 26, 2017
The most recent error is BEYOND IRRITATING. Inside the Pokemon list- after transferring and or selecting a Pokemon to favor, the scroll resets to the top. Basically after any action the scroll resets to default top/beginning. THIS IS VERY INCONVENIENT. I am thinking about uninstalling again.... Already submitted this error to Niantic with out any confirmation they're working on it. Full Review
Mercedes Taylor Published date: December 28, 2017
I am an avid Pokemon fan, I have been since the first games. I love the idea. But I live in a small town, and there are no Pokestops, or gyms, and I'd really like for there to be. I'm running low on pokeballs and I can't stock up unless I go somewhere else or pay. That doesn't seem very fair. Please fix and add trading and battling others. For each fix I will raise a star. Full Review
Joshua Flores Published date: January 8, 2018
The game really has gotten me active. I get out usually in the mornings and take the gyms nearby and collect the stops. My only issue is that I don't get coins sometimes when I defend the gyms. I had my Pinsir on a gym for a good 22 hours but earned nothing. I hope the devs see this, otherwise I'd give a 5 Full Review
Zack Steffel Published date: December 27, 2017
Haven't played this game since the raid battles came out. It REALLY sucks now. It's a really stupid game. Also, I ride a bike everywhere and apparently I ride too fast for PokÃ©mon. I mean in every single game you get a bicycle. I should be able to hatch my eggs while bicycling. Now it doesn't reward me at all for bicycling. This sucks! Full Review
Duke Yin Published date: January 13, 2018
Kyogre is too difficult to catch, and legendary spawns are down. Please give us EX Raid Pass transparency. I do the correct raids at the winning time and grind my gym badge points, but I don't win a pass while my raid lobby mates do win. Why do you purposefully separate players for EX Raids, and sometimes don't invite enough trainers to beat Mewtwo? Why is there no in-game feature to show us if we have entered ourselves into the lottery and what our odds are of winning a pass? And do your sponsors realize that spoofers can't buy coffee?
