Description

Pokémon GO just introduced a new research feature that encourages Trainers to explore the world by completing a variety of objectives with the opportunity to earn helpful rewards and discover powerful Pokémon. Join Trainers across the globe who are discovering Pokémon as they explore the world around them. Pokémon GO is the global gaming sensation that has been downloaded over 800 million times and named “Best Mobile Game” by The Game Developers Choice Awards and “Best App of the Year” by TechCrunch. Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Pikachu, and many other Pokémon have been discovered! Pokémon are out there, and you need to find them. As you walk around a neighborhood, your smartphone will vibrate when there’s a Pokémon nearby. Take aim and throw a Poké Ball… You’ll have to stay alert, or it might get away! Search far and wide for Pokémon and items Certain Pokémon appear near their native environment—look for Water-type Pokémon by lakes and oceans. Visit PokéStops and Gyms—found at interesting places like museums, art installations, historical markers, and monuments—to stock up on Poké Balls and helpful items. Catching, hatching, evolving, and more As you level up, you’ll be able to catch more-powerful Pokémon to complete your Pokédex. You can add to your collection by hatching Pokémon Eggs based on the distances you walk. Help your Pokémon evolve by catching many of the same kind. Choose a Buddy Pokémon to walk with and earn Candy that will help you make your Pokémon stronger. Compete in epic Gym battles You’ll join one of three teams and battle for the ownership of Gyms with your Pokémon at your side. As your Charmander evolves to Charmeleon and then Charizard, you can battle together to defeat a Gym and assign your Pokémon to defend it against all comers. Team up to defeat powerful Raid Bosses A Raid Battle is a cooperative gameplay experience that encourages you to work with up to 20 other Trainers to defeat an extremely powerful Pokémon known as the Raid Boss. If you succeed in defeating it in battle, you’ll have the chance to catch an extra powerful Pokémon of your own! It’s time to get moving—your real-life adventures await!

  • Server Issues

    By Collin1023
    The game relies solely on connection with the Pokémon Go Servers and god knows it’s a roll of the dice if it decides to connect. I played this game for little over 100 hours and when my game failed to connect to the server it deleted over 100 revives I had saved and had no way to recover the items. The servers are worst then Ubisoft and is the worst I’ve ever seen for any game. Ever. And that is just discussing connection to the servers and not begging to discuss how fast the game drains your battery. Would not recommend to anyone if they had an IPhone or even a galaxy.
  • Great game; flakey app

    The recent revision has caused so many problems for me to log in. At least once a day, the app gets stuck at the start screen halfway through the progress bar. I’ve tried all the trouble shooting tips on their website, but nothing helps. This problem also made me miss 40 minutes of community day and wasted me my star piece, lucky egg and incense.

  • Needs number of fixes

    Number of fixes/issues that needs to be addressed. 1) Have the events in the different parts of the country and and different continents. I know a few events are switching around but have some of the events in different locations. The Chicago event this year has happened the last year or two, so it would be great to change the location from year to year like from Chicago to Anchorage then to Los Angeles then some small towns mixed in. 2) Is a option to see previous raids at a gym for that day. So if there were 3 raids at gym 1 and most recent raid ended at 2:30pm, it can give out the chance that gym would host another raid. 3) Is receiving coins after defending a gym. About 90% of the time I do receive coins for defending a gym. But other times the game doesn’t want to reward me for work and time to defend the gym. The bonus should be for the day you put your Pokémon in the gym. 4) Spoofing shouldn’t be allowed. It’s ruining the game when they are hogging up all raid spots or taking over gyms. I have missed good raid sessions (with people I know or I’ve done raids with before) because of spoofers. And have been knocked out of gyms within 5 minutes because of them. 5) The feeding system should be available only AFTER a battle of all the Pokémon in the gym OR when nobody is battling down the gym. I have encountered along with few others that we are in a battle to faint a 800CP Blissey (for example) out and as soon as we believe that we knocked that Blissey out it got fed a golden berry just before it got knocked out to go back to 2997. Also it’s upsetting when myself (others to) are battling down a gym and someone puts their Pokémon in the gym while it’s under attack. Tried putting my Pokémon in gyms while under attack and says “gym is under attack”. So please come out with a legit fix. 6)Gps needs to be fixed. Sometimes when I play my character either stays in one place and takes his sweet time walking to where I’m at or my player starts walking on the other side of the street and seems like he is taking a walk somewhere or on a worse case he would run about 2-3 blocks away and start walking around that location and then runs back and says I’m a passenger. Or says “No GPS found”. 7) Able to request and/or request a removal of a Pokéstops without being a business owner. I’ve seen Pokéstops that hasn’t been their in months/years or businesses that went out ages ago and it would be great to request a removal of those Pokéstops. The game was meant to be played by people who can get around. Using a disability as a excuse to cheat is just plain lousy. Their are people who are disabled who can get out play. I’m disabled but can walk a combined 5 miles on average. If you can’t get out and play then find a Nintendo system and play on that. Also needs a friend request option. If someone ran across a few helpful raiders or whatever it would be handy. What’s needed soon is chat. There should be three types of chat: 1)Local chat 1 & 2, which allows you to chat to people within a few blocks away in 1 and the city in 2, 2) Friend chat, allows you to talk to friends 3) Normal chat, allows people to chat with others from across the world. It would be great for getting a raid group going or just need a few more people in the raid or to see if someone wants to walk around and play Pokémon or whatever. You can enable/disable any of them when you like. One feature that needs to be fixed is throwing Pokéballs at Pokémon. Half the time the ball can hit the Pokémon and either go through the Pokémon or will use the dodge animation after the ball hits the Pokémon. One feature that would be great to see is bonuses on raids for interacting with others that are doing the raid. So if myself and 7 others are at a raid and not interacting with each other then we won’t be able to get the bonuses. If myself and 2 others are interacting then just us 3 would only be able to get the bonus. The rewards could be increased. I’m not saying you need to interact with people but I’m saying it might be a great incentive for people to interact with others and eventually form a raid group or even help with the bonuses or even play Pokémon together. The weather feature is great but needs a more realistic feeling. Like where I live sometimes it can be foggy for 6 blocks and mostly cloudy for the next 15 blocks and mostly sunny into the next city. So it would be nice to implement a weather system depending on where you are walking. What should be done if 2 people from different teams battled down a gym (only qualified if the players joined early) is have a a best of 3 challenge for the gym. Winner gets control over the gym until knocked out. Edit: With the EX Raid passes, the passes should go to active raiders in the community equally. I’m a active raider and got a few EX passes while someone I raid with at the same places finally got one about a month ago along with myself. What’s needed soon is a trading for Pokémon and trading for stuff in the inventory. I know a lot of people have been requesting that for awhile. And have equal trades. So if I was trading a wonder nearly maxed out Tauros for another regional then the other person must have a wonder regional with good or better CP. Also what's needed is raid punishment for people who leave during battle. It gets frustrating when you almost done with the raid and most people leave because their Pokémon die and don't feel like selecting new ones or a raid just starts with 12 people (example) and most of them leave except myself and 1-2 other people or people think that they can’t complete the raid before the timer so they leave. But if you do leave then it would start with a gym suspension (can’t do battles and raids) and then leads to gym and game suspensions. The suspensions will increase in time the more you leave. Then leads into a permanent ban if you continue. If you lag out or lose connection or "error" then you won't be punished.

    Racist and Fascist. This game only works if you pay money and don’t have a soul. I guess justice and legal matters don’t count on phones and games since it’s ok for them to steal my data and information but not actually function as a game. I guess they get to burn in H for committing so many sins. Thanks for being so selfish and ruining Pokemon and religion
  • Trade Pokémon?!?!?

    By Steventran4500
    This game is amazing and motivational when trying to get fit! I grew up watching and loving Pokémon!! I love catching Pokémon but I have some request. I believe that there should be more poké stops at places including high schools and the ability to trade Pokémon with other trainers! I believe there should be a chatting message place to communicate with other trainers! Thank you so much and let’s go catch them all!!
  • I’d play this if it had the old battle system
