Description

Join Trainers across the globe who are discovering Pokémon as they explore the world around them. The newest update to Pokémon GO, the global gaming sensation that has been downloaded over 750 million times and named “Best Mobile Game” by The Game Developers Choice Awards and “Best App of the Year” by TechCrunch, introduced a dynamic weather system that recognizes real-world weather, impacting the gameplay experience in a variety of ways, from changing the Pokémon encountered to increasing their effectiveness in combat. 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!

  • Great game but...

    This is a great game and I like playing it but I think the battle option would be a great feature to integrate in order for users to play and battle with friends. I think transferring Pokémon with friends would also be a cool feature to integrate since you could transfer Pokémon with friends who have Pokémon you don’t and vise versa
  • Awesome Game

    They fixed the issue of having to scroll down every time a Pokémon is transferred. Thank you.
  • A huge oversight

    I feel Pokémon Go was a great concept and the commercials were amazing. Unfortunately this was nothing like the game. The servers are bad, The glitches are bad, and you can hardly ever get in the game! I seriously hope they can fix these bugs, and make the game as good as it should be. Thanks!

    What’s frustrating lately is when you battle a gym down and the same exact team takes it over before you can put a Pokémon into the gym. Example Instinct gets knocked out of the gym and within 5 seconds Instinct is taking over that gym. How is that even possible? I thought whoever defeated the gym first was prioritized. Niantic- Do something to fix this issue. And add a minimum time before a gym (if it has anyone been in their for under 30 minutes) before anyone can battle it to earn 1-2 coins. Edit: With the EX Raid passes, the passes should go to active raiders in the community and NOT some level 20 guy who has done a few raids recently (3 in one week and 7 all together). Also spread the passes along the active raiders so everyone has a fair chance. What’s needed soon is a trading for Pokémon and trading/selling for stuff in the inventory. The reason for trading Pokémon needs to come out because someone people came around just after the Legendary Birds disappeared or may not have Tauros (my region Pokémon) and are extremely low on funds or don’t have time to travel). Selling/trading items in the inventory is needed because some people don’t have enough of one or two items or people don’t want to give up tons of items in the inventory for nothing (maybe bulk selling is worth 5-10 coins for potions and 2-5 coins for balls) and bulk selling can happen every 3-4 days. What’s needed is daily objectives. Need to complete 2 or 3 goals. And the rewards are 5 Pokeballs, 15 or 20 coins, and 100xp for daily rewards and 10 Pokeballs, 50 coins, and 400xp for the weekly reward and 30 Pokeballs, 200 coins, and 2,000xp for the monthly reward. 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. But if you do leave for whatever reason it should go 1) warning 2) 4 day raid suspension 3) 1 1/2 weeks raid and gym suspension 4) 4 weeks raid and gym suspension. And game suspension after 3rd suspension (starts at 2 weeks then when you come back you start the gym/raid suspension). If you lag out or lose connection or "error" then you won't be punished. Also if you join a Raid but have to get going (work, weather, emergency in the area, late somewhere) just as it starts or shortly after it starts they should give the player a .25 to .5 of a mile to battle in the raid before it kicks them out. With raids, they should pop up even at night and early morning hours from 8pm to 5am. The only catch is that the raids are 1 and 2 stars in parks and non-residential areas so it won’t disturb people. With earning coins at gyms, it frustrating when you in a gym for 2+ days and only get A 1 day bonus of 50 coins. I've been in multiple gyms that I've defended for 3-4 days and only got 50 coins. So it would be nice to get the coins for the rest of days you are in the gym and get extra coins for extended stays in the gyms (so if you stay in for 4 days it would be 200 and extended stay would be 250 altogether). And if there are 2+ Pokémon in different gyms you should be able to get the same coins amount. Also if you are in a gym for a short period of time (like 5 minutes give or take) at least reward us with a couple of coins at least. Edit: There should be a friend request/list for this game along with with chat. So if you run across a helpful person/group you have the option to send them a friend request. Or can add people in different states and countries. It might be good so you can invite friends to raids or trading (if it comes out). Edit: Also maybe once a month for 1 day is open the requests for gyms and Pokéstops. It will be great for for people in rural areas (not myself though) and places that don’t have that many (which I seen). And maybe remove/organize couple of pointless Pokéstops (there’s one Pokéstop that’s a painting that isn’t there anymore and with a gym draped over the Pokéstop is a Starbucks so maybe have the Starbucks as the gym badge or whatever it’s called).
  • more than a game.

    I was feeling so depressed and horrible for couple of months. Even worse, the weather is not very helping, as i live in northern hemisphere, meaning it is winter now. All day dark and bleak. One day, i thought to myself, i need to get out of my room and take a fresh air, at least that would help me cope with my depression for a bit. I decided to re-download pokemon go & resume my progress on where i left off. At first i was quite reluctant to go out and chase off Pokemons, and then after few weeks, i feel much better, i started to go out on regular basis, albeit just couple of hours, in order to hatch the eggs, defend my gyms, defeat and conquer other gyms and catching pokemon. My friends have been following my progress and they have been quite supportive, sometimes they go out with me just to accompany me catch pokemon and talking about problems and stuffs. I am grateful for the Niantic team, for making this game. I am still battling with my depression, but ever-since i know that i have pokemons to chase and evolve, i am hopeful that i will cope out. xoxo
  • Too slow.

    I used to like playing this game, but now when you open it, it takes around two minutes just to load thanks to all of the updates and stuff. I would start to play it again if they could speed that up. It’s very frustrating when I know I’ll have to wait a few minutes just to open it once to get a Pokéstop.

    ERROR GPS SIGNAL NOT FOUND. (11) is the message I get almost every time I enter the game! It doesn't load and it won't even work when I'm using wifi!? I love the game but Niantec needs to fix this now. It ruins the gaming experience.
