Description

Pokémon GO has now introduced social and trading features that allow Trainers to connect with each other by adding friends, sending Gifts, and participating in a new Friendship level system that unlocks bonuses. Trainers can now trade Pokémon with other Trainers nearby, earning a Candy Bonus for the Pokémon received. 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!

    I’ve been playing since the day it came out, loving it, but these past few updates have completely broken my game. It finishes the opening loading screen, tells me to accept the new terms of service, then crashes. Every time. I miss playing this game...
  • Crashes over and over

    Me and my boyfriend has started to play Pokémon Go and recently had to update app twice in the past week or so. The new update made Pokémon’s harder to catch. Ones that have only 65 Cps are now just as hard to catch as ones with 765 plus CPs etc. Although we love there’s new Pokémon’s available to catch we hate the fact easy (less strong) Pokémon’s take 3-5 or more even with a Great or Excellent throw is harder to catch. Please fix !!
  • Why is AR mode mandatory ?!?!?

    Game was somewhat enjoyable u til a recent update forced a weird white screen AR mode on players. What gives? How can anyone catch pokémon when they have to turn around constantly, hold the phone at awkward angles and walk aimlessly?! Seems like a dangerous incident waiting to happen. Does the creator of this app not care about player safety? Come on!
  • AR Fail and Black Screen

    This app needs to be returned to its previous version. AR limits your ability to play in different settings. Now it is loading a black screen and is not working at all. Remove the forced AR setting. It is terrible!
  • Update doesn't work right

    Updated app today and can’t find a way to turn off AR. I will literally never play this game again if this doesn’t change. AR is inconvenient af.

    I want to love this game so much.... but I hate it. Allow me to clarify... I play. Regularly. Every day. My wife fears it has a hold over my life. So many things about the game are fantastic. But there are several flaws, both in system architecture and gameplay, that make this game monotonously torturous. It's so reliant on flawless network connectivity and server processes, half of the time you want to do something very basic (to the user), the app fails, touting network connectivity or poor GPS reception as the cause. Sound like a hardware issue? It's not. I immediately verify every time it happens with other apps, both for connectivity and GPS signal. Great and great, and yet Niantic fails. These issues mostly occur when transitioning between signal sources, WiFi to WiFi, WiFi to cell, cell to WiFi, and cell tower to cell tower transitions. Why is this a problem? The game is designed to be mobile. It FORCES the user to move around, (which is its best feature!)... so if that's the original intent and the user interaction architecture... wouldn't it make sense to ensure the backend architecture supports that? Nope. Flaws. Critical flaws. Next complaint is the gameplay itself. It punishes high level players. You basically have to make Pokemon Go a part time (at least) job to stay competitive with level 35 and up players. This is where the "premium" aspect of "freemium" comes in. If you're not sinking coin into this game, it will take you years to max out your level. Next problem... maxing our your player level is untenable. Maxing out enough Pokemon levels to be competitive? Laughable. You have to earn an UNGODLY amount of "Stardust" to do anything of value in the game. Consistent, 2-4 hours of gameplay a day, without in-app purchases, yields 10,000 or so Stardust per day. At high levels, that's barely enough to level up one high level pokemon. This game rapidly becomes monotonously torturous. Don't try it. Don't even download it.
