Where is pokÃ©mon trading??? It is essential and was already in trailer, the functionality is not there even after 2 years! Why is there not possibility of duelling - it's one of foundations in pokÃ©mon world - to be able to challenge any trainer! Why do we need to cooperate with that many players to get a legendary pokemon? Impossible for people living in cities under 100k population. Create more likely some chasing of these pokemons between pokestops around cca 3km radius. Full Review

In its current state the game is just okay, after some very controversial changes that were made. Thankfully niantic has finally addressed the public regarding the 3 step bug. They also said that the game is only 10% of what they want it to be so it's just a matter of time before it gets really good. Full Review
Tirthankar Das Published date: November 12, 2017
I am in level 26 and have registered 243 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 and LUGIA. Only a few requests to Niantic.... 1. Please make MEWTWO raids more widespread around the world. 2.Please release MEW, HO-OH and CELEBI raids , I am a great fan of HO-OH. THANKS TO NIANTIC FOR RELEASING GEN 3 IN POKEMON GO Full Review
Peter Brennan Published date: November 9, 2017
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
Pixel Pirate Published date: November 7, 2017
The game is working well enough, although Niantic really needs to sort out the MewTwo raids. People need a fighting chance at getting an ex raid pass rather than it being dumb luck. Also more ways to obtain stardust (especially at higher levels) would make the game much more enjoyable. Full Review
Calvin Cotton Published date: November 9, 2017
Coin system is 1 coin per 10 minutes of your Pokemon being on a gym. 50 coins max in a day. Read the notes! Saying youre a rural player doesnt really matter, the idea is to get out of your subdivision and walk/bike around. The game is great, my wife, child and I go for walks every night and catch Pokemons. I just wish a One Time Team Change would be implemented as I chose a different team then my friends at the start. Full Review
William Johnston Published date: November 15, 2017
Love the game. Since i travel for work i get a chance to play this in a number of areas. The only thing is it needs a touch of oldschool. I miss leveling my pokemon or getting items from battling wild ones. Gyms are cool, but we definitely need some more of the battle aspect Full Review
Roy Flatt Published date: November 13, 2017
I love pokemon go. I been playing since it came out. I just wish we chnage the ammount of coins you get. Like 1 gym you get 50 max but if you hold more then one gym a day you should be able get 50 one gym and 50 for other gym ad 50 for other gym depending on how many gyms you held for one day. And cant wait til 4th gen. Thank you pokemon go and developers for the great game. Full Review
hyacinth chan Published date: November 7, 2017
As a game, it is a pretty good game if you do not go too competitive. I am here b/c I need to prepare for the gen 3 release lol. :) Hope it will release the whole Hoenn Dex soon. It's only the ghosts that came out. Full Review
gulab khan Published date: November 8, 2017
Hello developer, I'm gulab, this game is so awesome and very addictive... But I want to add more things on this game to popular... You have to add more attractive things such as, communication with other peoples in this game, you have to add chat box, you have to add PokÃ©mon go clan in this game those who wants to join this clan and make PokÃ©mon army for battle, you have to add live match video whose gonna to attack in gym battle, you have to add more items in shop to buy, you have to add online people who is playing PokÃ©mon go... Etc. Plss developer of this game plss add this things... Don't ignore plss work for it next updation of PokÃ©mon go.. Full Review
Brandi Michelle Published date: November 6, 2017
It's a fun way to play Pokemon!! I play almost everyday and it makes the walk to and from my kid's school less tedious. Only thing, it's not very disabled friendly. I can't always get out to a pokestop to replenish my higher level balls. You can only buy standard pokeballs and I can't always afford to do that. It takes forever to level when I'm stuck indoors, also. Overall, it's a good game. It could use improvements so everyone is included, however. Full Review
Duane Green Published date: November 7, 2017
PokÃ©mon Go is Niantic's nostalgia cash cow. It has been riddled with bugs and starved for features since launch. It survives thanks to people that love PokÃ©mon, but suffer through the bare-bones shell of a game. Niantic could have listened to the fans and their paying players. PokÃ©mon Go is one of the biggest squandered opportunities in the history of gaming. Full Review
luna tan Published date: November 16, 2017
It's OK. The game just randomly gets out, especially when you at in a raid. It's not good to be in a country town where there are less poke stupid than a large city. Also less variety of Pokemon. Even hard to try to battle a larger them three star raid when there are not many gyms. Full Review
Ryan Greene Published date: November 9, 2017
You had all this time to get ready and half the game doesn't work. Way to kill the buzz of this game. HOW ARE PEOPLE GIVING THIS 5 STARS. YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES FOR PUTTING OUT SUCH GARBAGE PRODUCT. Full Review
Einar Benjamin Published date: November 14, 2017
When you leave a gym, touchscreen becomes unusable every time. Ruins the experience completely, Fix that. Also potion drop rates have become abysmal, I stop using stops and started only "spinning" gyms, still I can get only a fraction of the usual. Full Review
Gene Lee Published date: November 12, 2017
The raid times after the daylight savings time change ends too early in the evenings. I can't play until the late afternoons at the earliest. Setting raids to continue spawning eggs until after 8pm would be great. Thanks and keep up the hard work. Full Review
diana tovar de la rosa Published date: November 7, 2017
Everything is so nice with this game, the only problem is that lately I've been having issues with the location GPS signal, I even received an error and now Everytime that I open Pokemon I receive the message that I may have applications that change my location but I don't. I took screenshots about the jumps that the app is doing Everytime that I'm at home. I'll really appreciate if you could take a look at our it. Regards Full Review
Matt Rowland Published date: November 11, 2017
The gym where an ex raid took place at I battled there since the games release but because I shifted my attention to school once the semester starts and not battle at said gym I lost a chance at Mewtwo. I'm done with this game in every single way. I have to put in $ just to play now. It was fun while it lasted. Update: Niantic is currently developing a new game Harry Potter, ingress has received no feature updates. 2019 for PvP or trading if we're lucky. Full Review
Gustavo Negrete Published date: November 9, 2017
These updates take too long. Need to release trading and battle with friends. Need to be more interactive. Gets boring fast. Raid end waayy to soon. People work and raid are over by the time your out. Stop appealing to younger players who can't play this game. Has potential but failing Full Review
Ash G Published date: November 10, 2017
Regardless of the all the people whining about aspects of the updates that they personally don't like because it's inconvenient for just them, this is a cool app. It's an app that encourages me to go outdoors when I otherwise would just sit inside. Plus the animations are just adorable. Now, trying to get the go plus accessory in NZ, that's a real challenge :P Full Review
Published date: November 8, 2017
This app is truly amazing! It's unique, and the graphics are great. Although, it does need some more legendary Pokemon, or just more Pokemon. Also, when you can "walk with your buddy" it would be really cool if it actually shows up on the GPS with your avatar. Otherwise, love it ð Full Review
Published date: November 11, 2017
Game is getting stale. Need to give out more mewtwo passes, rotate the raid bosses, and do something better then log in bonuses. Have weeklong events, something like catch 100 grass types and get a exclusive hat or pokecoin. Full Review
Petri MajamÃ¤ki Published date: November 15, 2017
All the "security" measures Niantic has been implementing are hurting users from using their phones in normal manner. Blacklisted apps and root detection disable users from either playing or using their phones to their fullest capacity. Blacklisting apps could also be considered as abuse of their high market position as they are blacklisting apps that have a established use case outside anything relating to Pokemon Go. Full Review
Jeff Cameron Published date: November 16, 2017
Constant location errors (GPS code 11) have made this game unplayable. Using Android 8. All my location settings are correct. The issue is on your end and it's getting worse every day Full Review
Kevin Buhler Published date: November 15, 2017
It's just.. incomplete. And screwy sometimes. Like. Trainer level seems to do jack all when it comes to catching anything. I caught a 1100cp Granbull in 2 or 3 balls. But I just used all the ultra and great balls I had and several berries for a 460cp Pikachu only for the damn thing to flee. Pretty random how many balls it takes to catch Pokemon. Full Review
James Lopez Published date: November 14, 2017
Going to hold off on the next update. There is absolutely zero reason Pokemon go needs to "observe" or "communicate" with other applications that are on my phone. As far as I'm concerned, that is a blatant privacy violation and I hope Google will actually do something about it. Apple has already done something, now it's Google's turn, that or samsung needs to ensure other apps require your permissions to communicate with one another. Full Review
Published date: November 13, 2017
You guys keep screwing things up. Fix one thing and then break another. Now you give little or no potions and revives at pokestops. Why don't you guys actually fix what is wrong and stop breaking those that work. Full Review
Sebastiao Silva Published date: November 10, 2017
- Fix your game before comiting to another one - Listen to the fans, ignore the whiners Easy peasy lemon squeezy - Dont wanna work hard? Sell the game to a company who will. - This game could be the most revolutinoary game ever... right now its a skeleton of a game. - Niantic you work at a pace of a Slakoth PokÃ©Souls: Prepare to grind edition. Full Review
Chetan pant Published date: November 14, 2017
Worst service. I lost many of my raid passes because of error. Like 4-5 times during legendary Pokemon raid. Even after writing several times to niantic in their "report critical issues" page .Never got raid passes. Full Review
Stephen Brown Published date: November 6, 2017
GPS used to work on battery saving and now only when high accuracy is on. Tons of Pokemon I've still never seen. A bit dull and repetitive, but helps my agoraphobia by getting me outside and around town. Full Review
Published date: November 10, 2017
I really like this game but it dose feel like I'm just collecting and there's no other objective, the features that we all want are quite simple, the ability to trade as well as being able to battle your friends. Please implement these things thank you Full Review
Muhammad Zaid Hasbullah Published date: November 14, 2017
Please, its loading to enter the game so long, i have walked pathway to my house, then it finally end the loading. Please, it's 7 minute, that's so long. And please, provide more wild pokemon for people that are walking. I wait so long for loading but only 3 PokÃ©mon, please. And please provide classic battle like PokÃ©mon in 3ds. Help me Full Review
Published date: November 8, 2017
Improve some things. Bring back lugia and legendary birds. Also remove the ex raid pass system and release mewtwo worldwide. Release mew , ho-oh , celebi . Relase gen 3 by maybe next year Full Review
Scott Logan Published date: November 9, 2017
It's okay I enjoy it from time to time, however I noticed that my Pokemon sightings often appear blank even if I'm right next to a Pokestop and it makes it so I can't find any Pokemon which is like 90% of the game. Very annoying! Full Review
Mike Lane Published date: November 16, 2017
Great game. Idea for update though: Add another way to battle. Instead of JUST gym battles, add player battles where you can can battle other players the same way you would battle gyms. Full Review
Ravindu Methsara Published date: November 13, 2017
This game is my favourite game. Please I need to join pokemon trainer club.I try it but they ask country and there was no Sir Lanka .So My country is SRI LANKA and please fix this problem Full Review
Published date: November 12, 2017
Dear Niantic, will you please bother to explain why the he*l will a robot bother to play this game? I am verifying for the umpteenth time. Uninstalling this. Your security protocol is worse than luvdisc's attacks. Full Review
Published date: November 8, 2017
It's a fun game but really buggy. When I'm running it only detects about one third of the actual distance. That makes it hard to hatch eggs. Sometimes pokestops and gyms don't activate when I'm in the correct location. Full Review
Corina Pegram-Mills Published date: November 13, 2017
Downloaded it and set up the username and password stuff and all I get is a black screen. Sometimes an ad will pop up but I click the app and it's just a black screen. Used to love the game and now can't play it ð Full Review
Joshua Swart Published date: November 14, 2017
This game must be fixed! When I'm on my samsung galaxy s6 edge, it says that i'm not compatible with pokemon go. I don't even have any root what so ever! Full Review
