Crashing on iOS 12.5My phone keeps crashing when I have a 12.5 and I have a lot of Pokémon before I could play and now it’s not working I can’t load in.Version: 1.167.1

PokéBall doesn’t connectThe game itself is great and I love all the updates since I last played about a year or so ago. However I was given a PokéBall Plus and it worked perfectly fine the first two days but now it fails to connect to the app every single time I try. It recognises it in the “Paired Devices” part in Settings, just not when you attempt to connect it via the map screen (using the PokéBall icon in the top right corner).Version: 1.123.0

Good but has issuesConstantly freezes or has errors/network problems. Can’t run or ride my bike to hatch eggs so that side of the game is a bit of a write off. Inability to manually dodge attack during battle sucks. Also having very few poke stops near my day to day areas makes it tough. Certainly stuff to improve but otherwise quite enjoyable..Version: 1.169.0

It is not exactly a Pokemon gameI appreciate your creativity that turn people into a Pokemon world through smart phone. However this is not the Pokemon world that people know about Firstly, Pokemon fight with wild Pokemon or others people’s Pokemon to be more powerful, and evolve. Not by using Candy Secondary, Pokemon fight by choosing skill, not tap tap tap and tap Its all my personal suggestion. I still play but if this game change like the Pokemon world that people know about, I will be the loyal player of the game. Thank for listening.Version: 1.75.0

Horrible raid boss catch rateI have done so many raids where I get a majority of excellent throws and the raid boss still couldn’t get caught. Terrible rng.Version: 1.159.2

Always crashing, now.With everything being added the more this game keeps crashing. Crashes and closes the app going into trades, crashes and closes going into the buddy screen, crashes and closes when there is a lot of pokémon in one area. Just making the game really unplayable and frustrating to have the app always closing. At times for multiple hours of trying to get into trading especially..Version: 1.145.2

It is fun.It is indeed fun and has grown a lot since I first started about four years ago. I am also really glad they retracted with the sprite version of Pokémon. I would have quit. I am proud that those behind Pokémon Go are doing what they can to help people enjoy the app during the pandemic. Even more so, I commend them for standing up for the black people and all races. Being anything other than white dose not mean that they mean less. To me they mean so much more. Now on from that and back to Pokémon Go. I find myself pondering weather to keep with Pokémon go, or to let it go. Community days end when workers are getting off work or kids getting off school. That is extremely unfair. There should also be more Pokémon, Pokémon stops and gems for those in rural areas. Also, I purchased a remote raid pass for the event. When I hopped in to join, the people left so I hopped out only to find that I had completely lost my remote raid pass. This was also unfair as other raid passes do not vanish when you hop in and out when others leave. Another reason for me to consider leaving. It is very wrong for the raid to be used up like that especially when we have to pay for them. I surely will not buy another, event or not. Sure, coins, incubators, lucky eggs and so on are expected to disappear when used, but when other raid passes let you hop in and out, it is shameful to take the remote raid pass without having participated in any raid. That is all I have to say..Version: 1.143.0

It’s okThe game play is fun when it actually works. However I’ve found that almost every time I’ve tried any of the interactive features like any battle, trade, or opening gifts the app shuts down. I can win a battle then right before it says you win it kicks me out of the app and It counts it as a loss and that’s if I can even get to that point presuming it doesn’t kick me out half in a battle (but it doesn’t end the battle).Also I live in a rural area so the closest poke stop is 5.4 km away and the closest gym is like 15 km away..Version: 1.151.0

Missing key Pokémon featuresThe game is boring and it’s hard to collect coins to buy backpack space, bag space is also way to limited, key features that are missing in this game that we need: surfing, fishing and fast travel/flying to new locations, joystick for surfing only, fishing, poke-ball crafting like in gold and silver, unlimited bag/item/Pokémon storage space, actual Pokémon game music, patches of tall grass to walk into to catch Pokémon just like in the actual games, decent U.i backgrounds and buildings, anything really to make it look like a game and not a avatar walking on a GPS screen, theirs so many more features I could list but theirs no room to right them all down, overall the game is poor due to activities like raids requiring 6-8 or more people to complete, regional Pokémon that can’t be captured in your own country, and micro transactions are very very expensive and it takes forever to earn required coins in game. 1/10.Version: 1.79.2

ProblemLately I’ve been really joining raids and they been kicking me out for no actual reason at all and I really need you to fix this because I am literally done.Version: 1.167.0

Not gonna lieI’m not even going to lie, I’m 27 and absolutely love this game. I grew up with Pokémon and this is by far the best Pokémon game. I stopped playing for a year or so because I reached the top level and got bored with it; about 6 months ago my husband convinced me to redownload it because of the numerous new features and two more generations of Pokémon that had been added to the game. Unfortunately as of lately I’ve been having nothing but problems with getting it to load. This is now the third time in a week that I’ve had to uninstall and reinstall the game and unfortunately this time it doesn’t appear to even be reinstalling. And yes the app and phone software are all up to date and everything like that. On top of that, on my other phone, if/when the game loads it no longer loads all of the way. It’s genuinely one of the most frustrating things I’ve been dealing with because playing this game keeps me out of trouble and out of my own head. It’s definitely become my biggest hobby and biggest outlet, so when I’m stressed out to the max and it doesn’t want to load - which seems to be every single time I’m excessively stressed lately- it just makes everything worse. I was praying that these last batch of updates they did would have fixed that but I haven’t even been able to get the game to load since it updated! That is literally the only downside to it and unfortunately it’s a major one..Version: 1.85.5

Bugs......Do you test your updates before publishing them? I think not because the game has more and more bugs. the pokemon go plus no longer react under ios 11 and the application crash very often..Version: 1.45.0

Careless of user experience“improvements” are worthless; user experience is too poor. to be honnest , beside increasing the number of monster in the game , i csnt even tell you Real upgrades/add ons on the game. Not enough quest variety and event quest are likely the same every time. (We get it that the team rocket is around , but can we fight sometime « leaders » others than the 4 useless overpowered one ?) Gameboy game was at least let you fight in wild for improvement, this one is pay to upgrade and even there you’re not reaching the random npc. what impress me the most is when they decide to « improve the graphics » that are not seen by the audience but that multitude of users cant play anymore cause them phone doesnt have no more the ability to do so. raid , despite to be the best portion of the game need to be accessible not only to elite but standard player ; 30% of the people from my friend list quit because them lack of time to lvl. Ithey were mainlystruggling to any 3to5 stars raid. leveling , thanks to have promising to bring easier exp but that would have been fun it it was true... Quest can give you what 500xp maybe 1.500xp over the questing if captures but you need 1.5Millions xp to reach for next level . on over 7h contant gaming double xp + xp item enable doing over and over the quests ive reach 700k xp. that represent 6-7month of regular play and not even half of a level. So technically Worthless. easy suggestions; deep drop lvl cap for inferior level and increase task reward. Raid Cue with country or even at large , remote passes should be the currency to cue to a random raid to a lvl choose by users . fight against sbire or others rewards, how many here cant get an hand on a good potion or revives... monthly rewards based on different skills like numbers of capture or task completed. Select a « pokemon » , set as an objective for the week/month/year what ever you wanted . select from your pokedex your wanted pokemon. after complex task , receive it. by exemple Complete 100 daily task to capture a lvl10 miniature of the mon’s you looking into it. Good luck to all players , im giving up. Programmers , farewell..Version: 1.167.1

Frustrating Customer ServiceCurrently customer service does not provide adequate support. During and shortly after go-fest, I was invited to multiple mobile raids but got flat kicked out after all my Pokémon fainted. I couldn’t get back in. If the timer hadn’t expired and I was able to get back in, it burned a second pass. This glitch cost me at least 6 mobile raid passes which I had purchased with money (not coins from raiding.) I bought more because I wanted to have fun with my friends and not let it ruin my time. Later when I contacted customer service I got reimbursed for 1 pass. One. That’s it. They blamed it on a “visual glitch” saying the pass was still there, but it wasn’t. My inventory never got reset, the passes just disappeared. Even after closing and logging out. They know the system is buggy and people are getting gypped out of things they purchased but don’t seem to care. Everyone I play with experienced the same issues and only half of us have received any sort of refund. Also: (yea I know it’s petty) character customization. There’s lacking color variants for even the basic items, you can’t choose between long or short hair. Every male/female looks the same but with a different skin tone. We’re 4 years into this game and you can have blue, yellow, green, white, purple or 3 different shades of brown hair ... but no RED. (Give me my stupid red hair!!!).Version: 1.149.0

Good but the bugs :((This game is by far one of my favourites, i grew up with pokémon so being able to play on phone is really neat when out and about. it IS really nice and has improved so much since it was released but guys, come on, fix your bugs! the first worldwide GO Fest was an absolute sham, i haven’t met anyone who wasn’t disappointed. please update your servers, the fact that people couldn’t play due to the app freezing, lag and being forced shut is really terrible considering people had to pay to play yknow. remote passes have so many bugs too, please fix being kicked from raids & being unable to rejoin. it’s very frustrating and gives a sour taste towards the game. i appreciate the frequent updates but stop adding more fire to the issues than fixing them.Version: 1.147.0

This new coin scheme is a scamThe daily limit of fifty coins was always frustrating, and now limiting the way they can be earned doesn't help. I understand not everyone can easily reach a gym to leave their Pokemon at to earn for them, but restricting everyone else to only being able to earn thirty from gyms while randomising arbitrary daily activities to earn the other twenty is even worse. Leave the gym earnings capped at fifty if you must, but make the activity earnings a completely separate source of income. What's another twenty coins a day really going to affect "business-wise" for the app in the virtual shop, anyway? A real $1 NZD for a hundred coins that you'd otherwise have to work five days for?.Version: 1.149.0

New update is great but it might as well have totally killed the go plus deviceUpdate with the newest version. Really annoying bug I’m hoping it’s a bug at least. Every time you transfer or rename a Pokémon it always jumps back to the top of the list instead of staying where you were. Very annoying and time wasting change having to scroll all the time. I really like the changes in the new update. The weather pattern thing is great. The button push charge move in gym battles is a huge improvement. The spawn rates have improved. Overall a really great update. However, it has basically killed any usefulness the go plus device had. The catch rate wasn’t great before, but at least it was acceptable for what it was. That definitely changed with the update. With the weather feature causing affected Pokémon to be higher cp the plus is even worse. You just can’t catch an almost maxed out anything with a regular ball. I would suggest what I think would be a fairly easy fix. Maybe have the game automatically start a catch attempt with a suggested ball instead of a regular one every time. Ie... if it pops up and I see the circle yellow I switch to a great ball. Red goes to ultra balls. Have the game/go plus be smart enough to do the same thing. I have huge stockpiles of great and ultra balls so I’d rather the plus use those to improve the catch rate..Version: 1.57.5

Some areas been having trouble with Newtown parkHi there, There’s two zones at Newtown Rose Garden park where myself and my partner could not get the prizes for Roses Artwork Seat. The other one is the West Toowoomba Croquet Club. It keeps telling us both to walk closer to interact with this pokestop. We’ve been extremely close and under the sign for the West Toowoomba Croquet Club. The Roses Artwork Seat we have sat on it to try to get it to work and that one tells us to walk closer to interact with this pokestop. It could of been the graffiti on the Roses Artwork Seat. The West Toowoomba Croquet Club sign could be because there was no shrubs on the ground underneath the mailbox. Otherwise we haven’t had any problems with it so far. Since we joined the Pokémon GO. We are enjoying it so far. But if you could check this out please and have it fix for us and everyone else who plays it. Please and thank you. We will let you know in future if there are anymore that aren’t working. Thank you for your time and helping us to try and get this fix and other players who play the game. MAYBE DO UPDATES ON THE POKESTOP TOO MAKE SURE ALL POKESTOPS ARE ALL WORKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.Version: 1.117.1

Get rid of regionalIf all pokemon were available, there wouldent be any spoofers ruining the game for us. Having regionals is unfair, cos if you want players to play by the rules you have to fly around countries which can be very expensive. Just stop making region specific pokemon and lets give everyone a chance to catch them all. Other than that its a fun game to play..Version: 1.71.1

Too many glitches make it impossible to progressUgh, I really want to love this game, but the glitches make it nearly impossible to progress. The first glitch is it never tracks how many km I've walked when adventure mode is turned on. I can't spend hours with my phone open on Pokemon go walking around, because I have a life, though I'd like to I have work and school. I'll dedicate a few hours here and then but not enough to progress that far. The next glitch is in the quest where you have to evolve your Dratini, I can't complete it because I accidentally evolved it before taking a stupid snapshot of the Dratini. You can only complete it by taking a snapshot of a Dratini, but I evolved it into a Dragonair. I've been looking for a Dratini outside and can't find one anywhere. Th glitches make it nearly impossible to progress any further, because you have to level up to be stronger but it's very difficult to level up without the important Dratini quest being completed which I can't complete. :/ I nearly lose in battles with people my level, because everyone has a Dragonite but I can't complete the quest to get the dragonite unless I walk 93 miles (1 candy every 5km and 93miles is enough km for the candies to evolve it), which I was prepared to do so I went for an hour walk today as a start, and it didn't track any of the km I walked..Version: 1.147.0

APPLE WATCH 3 EDITION APP CRASH KILLER!!!!!Major crash issue within app downloading pokemon go and signing in is no problem iPhone 6 ios 11.3. Only problem is crashes after splash screen after downloading I watch app on latest ios for it. Once downloaded on phone for watch main app crashes and will not fix even after troubleshooting and after deletion and rely installing No more iPhone 6 support for updated iOS it seems to be when downloading apple watch addition. It’s very unfortunate. Even bought a Apple Watch and pokego device for this just yesterday to get back in. And then an update delete re install delete reinstall and nothing.... very disappointed. ALSO LOST IPHONE 5 SUPPORT WHICH IS REALLY ONLY A BLICK IN THE GAMES BUILD PROPERTY FILE FOR ANYONE THAT WANTS TO EXPLORE THAT FOR YOUR SELVES. SHAME TO TAKE A GOOD THING AND SELL OUT SO PEOPLE HAVE TO YET FIND ANOTHER WAY TO DISH OUT MONEY TAKE OUT LOANS TO UPGRADE JUST TO ENJOY SOMETHING LIKE THIS. NOT SAYING THAT I HAVE PERSONALLY I'M JUST A DEV THAT KNOWS ABOUT THESE THING AND KNOW PEOPLE THAT GO THROUGH THIS UNFORTUNATE HONESTLY SCAM OF CORPERATE COHOOTS TO GAIN MORE THAN THEY SHOULD AND REALLY GIVE NOTHING BACK TO THE XONSUMER SO KUDOS TO YOU NIANTIC FOR SELLING OUT!!!!.Version: 1.75.0

New update disappointingIn the previous versions transferring and evolving Pokémon was easy and quick to do. I'm annoyed with the new update, when you transfer a Pokemon, you are automatically scrolled to the top of the Pokemon in your bag, rather than remaining in place. Before the update I could transfer a Pokémon and the app would leave me on the same pokemon number in my bag. Now you have to constantly scroll back..Version: 1.57.5

😢There is to many bugs.Every two minutes the game crashes..Version: 1.161.1

Battery drained in the backgroundNot sure when this started happening but I’ve noticed that my phone would be fully charged at night and when I woke up in the morning it would be at 50%! I checked my battery usage in settings and found that Pokémon go was running in the background. Not sure why it’s drained so much in the background though, especially between midnight and 7am...... would be great if you guys could look into it and see why that’s happened.Version: 1.139.0

Please make it work better with iPad!!!I absolutely LOVE this game, but the performance on my iPad Air 2 is pretty crappy at times. Like all day today it’s been giving me GPS errors, and it’s also been telling me to ‘try again later’ when I’m doing poké stops even though I’m not driving and I’m close enough. I have to try them like 10 times before they finally work. There’s also a glitch where sometimes when I try to place a Pokémon in a gym it tells me ‘this gym has no room for additional Pokémon’, even though there’s only one or two in there. And last but definitely not least, I just got into a legendary Pokémon raid (which I was very excited for by the way, and used a remote raid pass but when I went to go into the gym it told me I was too far and kicked me out. That was my last remote raid pass. Why did I get kicked out when it was a remote pass? Now I have none left. These issues are very very frustrating. I spend good hard earned money to buy things on this app, and when I use it on my iPad it does not function properly. It does a lot of other stuff too that I can’t think of at the moment that does not happen on the same account on my iPhone. I think you guys need to do some fine-tuning so that it works better with iPads. I would definitely give it 5 stars if these issues were fixed. Thanks for your time!.Version: 1.159.2

Pokecoins not added and not refundedAfter playing for over three years I recently had a very negative experience with Niantic/apple. Due to the upcoming community day, I wanted to add funds to my pogo account. The procedure went normal and I had to press the button that if I don’t reclaim within 2 weeks, purchase cannot be refunded. Despite purchase went though and I received the confirmation mail by apple some moments later, there was an error message within the app after the purchase. I ended up without coins in my account but a receipt of 100£. Due to apple policies I cannot get a refund. Niantic cannot confirm the purchase as it is not in their system due to the error message. Therefore, I had very poor customer support as Apple just recommended to contact the app developer and Niantic suggested to reach out to Apple for a refund. Both companies refused to reach out to the other company and to solve the problem despite I could provide both companies with proof of payment on my credit card. Therefore, I am very angry and disappointed from both companies - currently thinking of stopping to play! Hope there will still be a solution..Version: 1.127.1

ALL THOSE WHO WANT TO MAKE THE BATTLES FUNNERWe’ll Pokémon go has made GYM BATTLES? well really are they cool battles do they take Skill no , they take skill those gym battles. Any ways what I want in the gym battle S to get ... A BETTER VERSION LIKE INSTEAD OF TAPING THE SCREEN AND DOING NOTHING ELS BUT TAP ... IT SHOULD BE LIKE this ... you can have a strong Pokémon but the other player could have a lot more skill at battles like you could tell your Pokémon to jump in the air to dodge the enemy and also shot fire at the enemy Pokémon and like pikachu use IRON TAIL and PIKACHU DODGE , PIKACHU JUMP , PIKACHU DO SOME THING THAT MAKE ME NOT HAVE TO KEEP TAPING THE SCREEN AND NOT THINK ABOUT HAVING TO LOSE COZ MY POKÉMON IS STRONGER. and thank you for listening. Tell me when you have added it in the game then I’ll play Pokémon GO.Version: 1.65.3

Getting worse and worse.My first rating was 4*. My second went down to 3* with a few suggestions. My last and final is 1* cos the game is now unplayable. It keeps crashing. Every time I take a gym then tap it to go back in and leave one of my Pokemon there it crashes. It happens randomly too sometimes when I catch a Pokémon it’ll crash with the poke ball sitting in the middle of my screen. And today I was wondering if it would work and it crashed in the middle of loading up! So I’m going to take it that this is the universe telling me to stop wasting my precious time on attention demanding apps and games that do nothing for me. Good bye forever Pokemon you are the first to fall to my techno-purge..Version: 1.61.2

Update features of niantic kids pleaseGreat game, love it, BUT Can you please make it so niantic kids can add friends and trade, my 11 year old son would love to trade with me, otherwise people are just gonna lie and make adult accounts for their kids (which a lot of people do) Why is it that kids can’t trade? Also, why do my Pokecoin purchases come out weeks after I make the purchases , and all at once. That is really annoying.Version: 1.119.0

Save your moneyNiantic makes a TON of money off this game and yet the app has so many issues that they won’t or can’t fix. Would you buy a new car knowing the brakes would fail daily or the engine quits all the time? If you put money into this app then maybe you would. This is what Niantic is selling, a lemon of an app. Stop wasting your money on Pokémon GO and buy yourself something frilly..Version: 1.141.1

UpdateI love the game but i give it a 2 bc it needs updates for ease of use. im a passenger in a car alot and pokestops should be able to open and spin if were going past one at 60 mph bc some of the places we go by no one is walking to so the onlyway to hit it is from a car but like i said if im a passenger there shouldnt be restrictions. also i dont need the dont pokemon and go while driving message to pop up every time my speed changes if i say im a passenger it should acknowledge and not ask again unless i close the app and open back up if u have to create a license agreement stating that if u check this box and are using pokémon go while driving after it asks if ur a passenger and u aren't a passenger u cant sue if u get in an accident then do that . also the special stones and leafs and all that for upgrades should be way easier to get I'm level 28 and have never seen some of them and i have the candies to upgrade idk if thats just me but ... lastly ditto idk what i have to do but its the longest achievement I've been trying to get i cant ever find him and like i said i'm a passenger a-lot i go all over the state it's getting to the point where i don't wanna play anymore bc i cant get to the next stage of special research its a lil ridiculous like i feel like they should pop up once since i have 2 special researches for it but yea hope thats all taken into account before i delete the app bc i like playing.Version: 1.117.1

Why coin limitThere shouldn’t a limit on how many coins I can get in a day it basically punishes the player for playing the game there is no real or justified reason for this please make bigger wallet.Version: 1.159.3

Greed is ruining POGOThis game has been around since 2016, you would expect it to be incredibly polished by now, but it isn’t. That’s just the tip of the iceberg though, for example say you buy some raid passes to raid with friends, the game can glitch out and boot you from the raid. You lose your pass and the chance to catch the elite Pokémon, you might get one pass returned to you if you contact support, but that’s it, even though this problem is common you won’t get any more refunds and are possibly gambling money away. You can essentially be taxed for the technical faults of the game. Now there are nerfs to earning the in-game currency, in Australia at least. You could earn coins daily by holding gyms long enough, it was fair and rewarded players who kept going out and playing the game. Now they’re trying to make it harder and more tedious to earn coins for free, to encourage people to buy coins with real money..Version: 1.141.0

I LOVE IT BUT,Ok I have been playing Pokémon go since it came out. I have never left it, and I have probably spent 100$ on it this year. Pokémon go is so fun and addicting for Pokémon fans. Now on to the bad parts. A Raid glitch happens here’s how, so I was playing Pokémon go and my friend invited me to a Espurr raid yesterday, and we won because me and my friend have good Pokémon and I went to the catch screen. IT WAS A SHINY. I freaked out and I started screen recording. But then it said “network error (3)”. I didn’t care because that happens when u exit out of Pokémon go. So I went to my berry screen to get a golden Berry and it just started spamming network error 3. It didn’t let me touch or do anything. My entire phone was frozen! I tried to power it off and it didn’t work. So I went to apple to fix my phone. They fixed it but I lost the shiny Espurr. I was so mad. And your probably like “oh just go and get another raid” I live somewhere where there is no gyms, or raids. The only place where I live where there gyms and raids are at the city capital (where the apple store was) and I can’t go there because of covid. Oh and to mention I lost my Pokémon go account because I forgot my password (when apple fixed my phone they reset it completely deleting all my apps and photos.) but I made a new account and I’m level 20. I’m gonna try the grind to get my account back. (Sorry for spelling errors I rushed this.).Version: 1.159.1

Room for improvement!1) I would like a grass feature from the original gameboy game 2) Major grind! I’ve had the game from before it even released in Canada, had been inactive for a year but all this time and I’ve got 4 maybe 5 perfect Pokémon! 3) I think you should be able to remote into a raid anyways, like within a certain radius of where you are and to register for it so you can have more participate instead of looking for one hopefully having others around especially in the town/city near the country! Even in the city I’ve scene some good raid opportunities but no shows, probably because no one saw anyone there. 4) have monster level or gain combat power when in battles or raids would be nice! 5) now glitching where the whole app closes in the middle of throwing a poke ball or hatching an egg. 6) Remote raid promo shows up but won’t let me use my 1 gold for the items. I have enough space, I’ve updated and restarted the app etc. 7) Stardust takes forever to gain! Even if you do quests and battles. 8) Do and fix the above and I think the game could really pick up some traction! 9) play with Pokémon feature half the time doesn’t recognize flat level unless a couple feet off the ground, and gets so big the minister that you have to be like 20 feet away to see reasonably at least. Oh and iPhone 12 so not like old struggling phone..Version: 1.141.1

Not a game for AgoraphobicsSo when I first played this game I used to love in bumfuq nowhere land where the closest gym was 30 minutes away, gathering coins was a distant dream at that point which is why I tried to cheat and use programs to make it so my character could actually go places for once but then that account got banned. 😔 I can understand why but how tf else was I suppose to progress!!? Anyways, even after moving closer to stops and gyms, though I live like maybe 10 minutes away from a gym walking distance it doesn’t matter because of my anxiety and agoraphobia so either way I’m screwed here. XD Not to mention being in the middle of a virus pandemic has made it EVEN HARDER to even TRY and go to gyms or stops out of fear of killing ppl by spreading said virus... and NOW I got riots to worry about... idk if you know this Niantic but the world isn’t always a nice place especially now and playing this game would be loads more fun if we could actually move our characters manually without actually having to leave our house and our characters could even travel the world that way which would be cool. (Or even have 2 modes so ppl can still walk around if they wanted, idk just an idea) Please fix this game so that EVERYONE can enjoy this game because as it is right now some people have a disadvantage and it’s just not fair to those people :T.Version: 1.143.1

This device is not compatibleThis review is for customer service more than the “This device is not compatible” error message. Like many others, I did the game update and the IOS update that ended my Pokémon game. Since that update a few months ago, I have updated my game several times and my IOS. After each update, I get excited hoping that this will be the update that fixes the “This device is not compatible” error message, but that update has not yet come. After the first “This device is not compatible” error message, I started searching for an answer. After not finding anything, I reached out to customer support for help. I filled out the form and explained in detail the best I could about what was happening. To my surprise, I received a reply pretty quickly. The only problem was it was just a link that took me to the troubleshooting guide that was inside the game. How do I know this you might ask, my friends I play with had the same guide opened in their game as I was doing what it said. After many failed attempts I reached back out to the customer and was once again sent the same link. I replied that I have already tried all these steps the best I could since the game will not even open. After more looking around I found other people were also having this problem and that there was no way to fix it. This game is so much fun and happily change my review if and when this problem is addressed..Version: 1.165.0

PfftI used to love this game. I was never big into Pokemon growing up, but then my partner got me into Pokemon Go and now I enjoy it and have since started playing all other Pokemon games. But lately, it all just seems pointless. I greatly appreciate the efforts made by Niantic to help players during this time of pandemic, and making it “easier” to catch, hatch and battle etc. But mostly the updates are at best, idiotic. Master battles? Impossible to win. I’ve gone from winning perhaps every other battle to now winning maybe 1 in every 10-15. Battle rewards? If I ever do get 2 wins in the master league, I am rewarded with a Landorus. Well, I say “reward” you still have to try and catch the thing and it’s impossible to do so. You may as well just delete all your berries and Pokeballs, it has the same effect. Completing special research tasks? These themselves aren’t too bad but again, I’m “rewarded” with a Celebi but I’m not allowed to catch it. Apparently it can only be caught in AR mode but the app WILL NOT let me use AR mode for this catch...any other Pokemon and it’s fine, but I can’t on this one..so what’s the point? I’ll never really complete that special research or catch my “reward”. This past week of updates has left me a bit disappointed and wondering what the point is anymore. There’s very little incentive to try and achieve anything on the app at the moment..Version: 1.139.0

CrashOk so I like Pokémon go but every time I try to play i crash.Version: 1.169.1

Go Battle LeagueThe G.B.L used to be very fun and competitive. I could go out and see what people were using and strategize teams capable of doing well. But, now in season 3 the algorithm feels socialist and fixed, way more than last season. What I mean by that is, I’ll use a team and everyone I go up against “just happens” to have the perfect team to destroy mine more than half the time, so I’ll change my team to combat the teams that I have been seeing, but the teams I’ve been seeing are no longer what I am seeing and again everyone I verse has a different team which “happens” to be made to easily destroy my team. This algorithm has in fact ruined the G.B.L. by removing most if not all of the competitiveness. So, people get wins when the algorithm says they should win and loses when the algorithm says they should lose. The only way to really get more than 50% wins seems to be if your opponent makes a mistake, which doesn’t usually happen because people who you verse when ranking matters usually know what they’re doing because they got to the rank they have by knowing what they’re doing. So, socialism may sound great, but in a competitive game it is asinine to have the system built around an idea that completely lacks competitiveness. Please allow the matching system to be more capitalist because capitalism is very competitive. And competitiveness is way more fun than non-competitiveness. I’ll probably increase my ranking if this change is made..Version: 1.141.2

Great game but...Great game but you need data or wifi to play and some people only have limited access to data and can’t spin Pokestops from home. Also, there should be Poké Centers like in the main series games or at least make it more common to find potions and revives cause I love battling but it’s hard to do so when you only have Pokémon that are super low in cp still alive. Also I should mention that I found a shiny Roselia and had no poke balls so I think they should give you Poké balls when you find a shiny and don’t have poke balls or at least give you a way to keep the shiny where it is so you can catch it later. A Nd my freind code is 4505 6927 4190 so invite me to a raid sometime.Version: 1.153.2

Good concept, poor execution. don’t expect muchThe two biggest problems in my opinion are: 1) Stability The app crashes constantly. This has been an issue for a very long time, and I honestly don’t see it being fixed any time soon. I can’t complete some of the in-game tasks such as using the buddy system because the app crashes. This is especially an issue in battles, which leads me to... 2) Gyms I love the idea of them, but gyms just aren’t fun. They cause the app to crash, there is no benefit to populating multiple gyms due to the coins limit, and trying to keep control of a gym for your team for more than a day is disincentivized. It’s an aspect of gameplay I’d like to engage with more, but can’t get much out of. There are some features I like though: 1) The variety of Pokémon spawning is good in my experience, with common spawns cycling frequently enough to not get tedious. Rare spawns are at a good rate to be both interesting and valuable. 2) Item drops seem balanced to me, if perhaps a little low on potions and a little too heavy on berries. 3) Team rocket balloons. I wouldn’t spend much time battling them at stops since I don’t want to stop walking in the middle of the street, but the battle balloons make these battles fun (when they don’t crash the game...).Version: 1.155.0

Pokémon GoThe game is very good it’s self, inspiring people to walk around and catch Pokémon. The thing that’s really letting it down is the battling feature. Essentially, there are two types of attacks: the fast attacks that you tap, and the charged attacks, which you can use after using a certain amount of fast attack. The problem with it is that different charged attacks take more or less fast attacks to use. The difference doesn’t sound like much but in battle it is very OP. I’ve fought some Pokémon that can release a charged attack after around 5 fast attacks. To put this into perspective, most Pokémon take around 15 fast attacks to make a charged attack. This means that it releases a powerful attach 3 times faster, and it can also run through your protect shields. If all Pokémon attacked at the same speed and the charged attacks took the same amount of fast attacks, then that would be much more equal. To make some Pokémon better, you could instead change the power of their attacks. If this was put into effect I would leave a 5-star review. Other than the battling the game is pretty much perfect, except from the fact that it takes quite a bit of battery life, which isn’t great considering it encourages you to walk around outside, without a charger, and using your (or someone else’s) mobile data..Version: 1.167.1

Used to love... Update: Can't even play anymore!I used to play this daily but uninstalled it today after waiting a week for community day, got ready thinking it was going to be all day as it says in the name 'community day' to find out it only lasted 3 hours! Also your making us pay for everything we need, incubators 150 coins for 3 uses... raid passes 100 coins for a 1% chance of catching a legendary... and then you bring out so many new Pokemon and expect us to either pay for storage upgrades or either not catch new Pokemon or get rid of the Pokemon we already had! It wouldn't be so bad if the price of coins was reasonable or we could earn more than 50 coins per day from gyms... I am so disappointed in how this game has turned out please get your act together! Well Niantic 10/10 for you. So iOS 11 came out and doesn't support iPhone 5! Pokemon go ONLY supports iOS 11 so us that are either trying to save money or just love our current phones and don't see any need to pay apple hundreds of pounds unnecessarily can't play Pokemon go anymore, brilliant app 10/10 *sarcastically*.Version: 1.61.2

Horrible customer service!!!!!!I’m writing this because of an experience I just had with this game. I’m a long time player, I have been playing since the game came out. Anyways I took part in go fest that just took place and besides a few glitches everything was fine until 8pm hit on Sunday. I was playing and I had a Durant spawn at 8pm and it was shiny!!! I couldn’t believe it I was so excited so I took a snap shot of it and then proceeded to catch it. I posted the Pokémon I just got on the Pokémon messager group I am in to show everyone how excited I was. Well that’s when everything went south. I went back to my game and it wasn’t shiny anymore... so I took screenshots of everything including the original shiny one I had and sent it to niantic to have them try and fix it. Well guess what the creators of the game said they can’t help me... I mean you would think that maybe they would wanna do something to make me happy because I have been playing this game for 4 years and have given them thousands of dollars. So I messaged them and told them my situation again and all they said was it’s a glitch and nothing they can do.. they didn’t even offer any sort of compensation for my troubles. Then Regina was the person who messaged me and was very rude about everything. Well I am very disappointed in the customer service they offer and I will absolutely think twice before spending my money and time in this game again if this is how they treat people!!!.Version: 1.147.1

Level 40 and over 13 - friends featureSecond edit: Surely you can have setting that allows the adult to be able to give authority to let an under 13 see the new social feature instead of making this unavailable to them? Or that the adult has to authorise friends. This is totally going to ruin the enjoyment of my nephew playing alongside me, which actually helps keep him active as he comes on walks with me. Even at least let the adult that their account is linked to and child be friends (even if the child can not add anyone else) so at least the child can benefit from this new added feature. C’mon these are surely better options that simply not letting an under 13 being able to see the feature and ruin their play, alongside the adult that they probably play with. Edit: interestingly the please come back when you hit be level 40 to access social feature! Has gone this morning and I can now access it on adult account. Still not visible on child linked account. To be able to use to the added social feature?! You don’t mention that in the update notes. How to ruin the excitement for the change to us more casual players (30 mins to an hour a day) , level 32 going to be a good few months before get to level 40. Also hoping that the roll out is gradually and you haven’t stopped child linked to adult accounts from having this as will totally ruin my nephew playing along side me (currently me adult can see feature but child nephew can’t).Version: 1.77.1

Lag lag crash crash crash....Game is incredibly laggy and constantly crashes. Every time I open friends list CRASH, just looking through my Pokémon CRASH, try to submit support tickets CRASH, trying to trade CRASH about 10 times before can actually trade and game crashes during the trade. Devs seem to not care about fixing issues that have been in the game for years, if they do fix something they end up breaking it again in a future update. Game itself used to be about promoting health and fitness, now it seems to just be about nurturing unhealthy addiction through fear of missing out and locking content behind paywalls. There are so many other issues with this game and some of the decisions they make show that they very know very little about Pokémon in general. It’s an amazing idea for a Pokémon game, it could’ve been something incredible if the devs were semi competent or even just actually listened to feedback.Version: 1.141.1

It’s really good butIt says like I’ve made my character and everything and then it says are you done with finishing your character so I like yes but then it just says location not found so open up settings so I open up the settings and I turn location on so then I go back into Pokémon GO and then just says that the location can’t be found and I’m like yes I put everything on your Settings and allowed it but its not working so what should I do because I don’t know how to get into the game it’s just really hard because I keep on allowing it for my location but it was like you know haven’t found location and everything but I deleted the app well the first time I got on it arm it said do you want the location to be found and I was like no but then I realise that I had to so I deleted the app and got back in but then it like I made my account and everything is on Google and everything but I went back in and it said that the location was around and open it up and told you all of that but it just doesn’t work and says the location hasn’t been found so please help me with the app 🙁🙁😞😞😞.Version: 1.171.0

Not RightI have been playing Pokémon go for several years now and about a year ago started getting into the raid. Until today I actually enjoyed playing Pokémon and doing the raids. I got the chance to do the new raid boss Giratina and actually had enough people to down the raid boss just before the time ran out. However I DIDNT GET Giratina because it would NOT stay in the White ball. I gave it berry’s but NOTHING WOULD HELP. I was not over throwing the balls and I didn’t miss 1 time but didn’t get the Pokémon because it would NOT stay in the ball AT ALL didn’t matter if I threw a berry or not. We do the raids to win the Pokémon and to do all that work and not win the Pokémon because it won’t stay in the ball is very wrong. It’s hard enough to actually find enough players to down a boss like Giratina where I live which is why I’m so very frustrated this happened. I’m sure some might think I’m just complaining but this is the 2nd time this has happened. I fully believe something needs to be done about this. If we are given these special white balls then it should be very hard for the Pokémon to brake out so we actually get the prize we are there for not break out as soon as it’s caught ever time. If that’s the case then why give us the special white balls .I don’t know if this has been happing to others I’m sure I’m not the only one but I can say if this happens again I will stop playing it Pokémon!!.Version: 1.91.2

Needs more for long term playersGood and bad. People look forward to such good rewards and you give us “mewtwo” after all the hard work we went through to do ex raid battles. Back in the day when it was so hard to find a chansey, they’re just spawning everywhere. There is no challenge because we know what to expect. Make it more interesting and unpredictable because I know it’s not just me who is sick of all your rewards. 7 day pokestop rewards too. How about rare candy and not “upgrades”. Kudos on community days but what, aren’t you ever going to now have one for a swanky because they’re already out as a shiny?? Or growlithe? Or magicarp? I’m not even going to bother getting deoxys because yep, sure, there WILL be a way somehow. For people who started in 2016, what good are events like the frequent spawn of the manor region, other than few extra candies to add to my collection. Overall it’s fun, but people want more..Version: 1.89.2

Love the game, not the bugs.I absolutely love this game and really appreciate the developers putting in all the hard work to make the game more accommodating during self-isolation. Unfortunately there seems to be a couple of bugs that are quite annoying. The first is my friends list automatically scrolls back up after sending someone a gift. You have to keep manually scrolling down after closing each friend to get to the next one. The other bug I’m running into is when I open a mystery box alongside incense, rather than tell me I can’t run both at the same time it just opens another incense and stacks the time on top of what was already remaining from the initial incense. Finally, I’m not keen on the proposed lower rate of coins earned per minute at the gym. You end up having to take over 3 gyms to earn coins at the same rate currently. Not exactly conducive to self isolating if you have to go to additional gyms. I hope this just isn’t a potential money grab by the developers to have people buy more coins than rather earn them in these difficult times..Version: 1.141.0

Shame!The developer - Niantic is a total shame. Every time they release an update, this update contains huge number of bags, even if they fixed something they definitely add new bags or take back old ones. What they have done with the friends list - outrageous. When you send a gift you go back to the top of the list. Why they can’t hire efficient professionals, who can manage the application. I’m sure that everything is as cheap as possible, except the donation policy and how they make you buy incubators and hatch rubbish. I hope one day a descent company will buy you, Niantic, and will manage the game in a proper way..Version: 1.97.1

Very Frustrating.The distance reader is horrible, WALKED 20km today and it only counted 4.6km, seemed like my distance counter just froze. Should be Pokemon in more places other than just in Towns or Cities..Version: 1.113.1

Signed outThis game is really good apart from the fact that it signed me out multiple times, and I am not able to sign in with google even though it is linked. I am going to stop playing until they fix this and actually let me sign in with google or just stop sign in me out in the first place..Version: 1.123.1

From fun to frustrating fast.The problem with Pokémon Go is that it starts off really fun and then after a few weeks it quickly gets frustrating and boring. You stop discovering new types and just catch the same old Pokémon over and over. You complete the research tasks or get close to finishing them but get stuck on extremely tedious tasks like evolving a magikarp which requires you to collect 400 candy for a Pokémon that rarely appears. The PVP competition is confusing as is the Pokémon appraisal system. The game is structured in a way that tries to force you to spend money in game. The game constantly glitches and freezes resulting in you losing things like remote raid passes halfway through a raid with no way of recovering them or the Pokémon you were attempting to defeat and catch. This is exceptionally annoying as it’s takes a lot of time or for you to pay money to obtain remote raid passes. You can’t communicate with friends in app which makes coordinating raids a nightmare. A lot more work has to be done to improve the stability of this app and make the game more engaging if Niantic wants to retain players long term..Version: 1.153.2

Account IssuesFirst off, I’m a huge Pokémon fan! Have been all my life. I got super far in my original account but then it wasn’t letting me buy stuff in the shop with my coins I had. So I figured I’d log out and go back in. Now it’s saying my password isn’t correct which I know it is. But then I requested an email to change it. They said it was sent but I never got it. I tried retrying and it said the link is active for 48 hours. Does that mean I’ll get the email within 48 hours or I have 48 hours? I tried using a made up email just to see what would happen and they said there’s no account on there with that email. Just wanted to be sure the email wasn’t a problem. So why is it not allowing me to change my password by sending me an email?? Also I made a second one just for the meantime but on this one it won’t allow me progress with egg hatching and/or buddy Pokémon getting candies. I turned all settings on for allowing my location and all that. My battery saving mode isn’t on either. Aside from that, I can’t add friends. It said that it won’t load and to try again later. All I’m saying is that on my original account, everything was okay. I was even playing earlier this morning. Is there anything that can be done? I can’t even really get the full experience because the events have to do with my buddy getting candies and also hatching eggs. What can be done?? I’m just upset because I put so much time and effort into this all for this to happen....Version: 1.141.0

Good, but needs major improvementsI have been playing Pokémon Go on and off since it came out, and it’s undoubtedly improved since then, evolving into a mostly enjoyable experience, and Niantic has adapted to the restrictions of COVID-19 pretty well. However, there are some things that desperately need fixing. The first one is raids: when a raid boss is defeated, the timer keeps running out for several seconds until the boss shrinks down and you can capture it. The timer should stop immediately once the boss’s health reaches zero. The second is Go Battle League: connectivity issues really ruin a lot of battles. I don’t want to win a battle because my opponent can’t fight back, and I don’t want to lose a battle because I’m taking damage and am unable to deal any back. There have been several instances where I will attempt to use a charge move, and despite no shields being used, it won’t do any damage to my opponent. And vice versa, I will use a shield, but I will still take full damage from my opponent’s charge move. If there is a connectivity issue, it should affect both players equally (read: neither should be able to do anything until it improves). It really ruins the excitement of GBL to experience something like that when there’s nothing you can do, and you still lose rank points for it. Please Niantic, fix these issues..Version: 1.139.2

Buggy appFor the most part you better have good connectivity with your mobile device or you will experience the most frustrating lag at times when you are battling other trainers thru the new go battle league schematic. I have lost tons of battles due to not my skill level but the servers not being able to connect my Pokémon fighting the other trainers Pokémon. There are times where the Pokémon disappears or takes time for the servers to load the Pokémon on the map which delays the time frame of events like community days etc. if you carry an iPhone I don’t think this game will be any fun due to the lag and any other issues that come across over time. Even Samsung has trouble on occasion with the 5g connectivity in certain areas. The antennae’s on the iPhone are awful and are better used for taking pictures and just calls. But for games stuck with a Samsung note or the galaxy series to get a better experience. This game after four years in the making struggles to allow any fun for the user about 60% of the time. Playable only when poke stops are near by and if you are out and about. Absolutely unappealing due to the laggy servers and lousy deals from in app purchases. One star automatically until this issue is fixed which will never happen. There will always be crashes and laggy gameplay for more than half of the time playing. Also make sure you have the unlimited data plan so you can at least load the game..Version: 1.137.1

Good, but limited nowThis game is great. It is fun and does get you out, but some changes have occurred which have really made the game less fun. First, there is really no way to get coins, which allow you to play, without buying them (you can get some things you need within the game but it cripples your ability to play much). So now you have to pay to play more than just the minimum. Next, there is no longer any incentive to fight to capture a gym or to hold one. You can get 50 coins per day by holding a gym - but there isn’t anything you can buy for 50 coins in the game. For instance, an incubator, which lets you hatch an egg, costs 150 coins. And that’s it. You don’t get any points or experience beyond just practice fighting and you Pokémon’s are stuck in the gym until someone takes it over - which there isn’t much incentive to do. I’ve had Pokémons sit there for days waiting for someone to take the gym. I’ve noticed players now no longer support their pm’s in the gym if they are under attack and some players put in very week pm’s so they don’t have to waste resources to revive. As more players figure this out, fighting for and holding gyms will become a thing of the past. And people without money to spare will find the game frustrating and limited. So sad, because it really was a great, community game once..Version: 1.91.2

CrashingI was really looking toward the community day on Saturday then I just kept getting constant crashes. I still to this day at getting constant crashes and it hurts to see. I waited weeks for this community day and the day it comes I can’t load the game anymore like come on. Please fix it I still can’t load in and it’s extremely frustrating especially when everyone else can still get in..Version: 1.155.0

Location accuracy is terrible; gets real boring.I could be right where a pokestop is, and when I click on it it says “walk closer “. How much closer do you want me to get??? Then all those annoying warnings about my speed when I’m not even moving is a HUGE NEGATIVE! The location accuracy is terrible; I can be right in one area, then the game will show I’m half way across from where I actually am. Furthermore, as they continue to add new Pokémon to the game; the same repetitive ones still show up consistently all the time. There’s no variety to catch unless you are walking all over the place; at random you may come across something worth the effort that’s IF the game is functioning properly; or if they have some sort of event happening. Lastly, I finally deleted the game because any time I have an opportunity to do something with the game, it ALWAYS takes a lifetime to load up EVERY time i get ready to try and play it, or it won’t load at all. Additionally you can’t play it if the game fails to read your location properly. I honestly wouldn’t recommend this game. Update: now the experience as far as catching the Pokémon is worst! They seem to now make you use the augmented reality when trying to catch the Pokémon forcing you to lose several balls, because if you move the phone around you lose sight of the Pokémon too. It’s like they think they’re making this game better, but it just gets worse with each update!.Version: 1.123.0

Pokémon go is OKI like Pokémon GO it’s very simple now very hard to use and it takes you out of all of the house and help his people to walk about and explore but the one thing I have problems with is that when I logged on for the first time I was at level one and then also I had a glitch and also I became level six on the red team even though I never chose that team the problem with this Pokémon go is that the team that develop the And the support system there is terrible because when I tell him about my issue they won’t even respond to my problem I was trying to tell him that I did not pick my team and they were saying that we can’t do anything about it once you pick your team there’s nothing that you can do I also try to reset my account with my new email and I didn’t do any good like I had really had issue with the login is your for Pokémon go and the support staff on that game was terrible they need to learn to have some Consideration about their customers if there’s a problem they should take the time and look into issues instead of just sitting on the automated discussions about what we need to know stuff like that the support system was really terrible in my case I mean the game is fine not gonna lie but the support system is terrible though tech-support for their game is terrible I even went to the website and didn’t do anything about it.Version: 1.99.2

Good game but many fixes.OK so first of all I would like to say is a great game plus there’s many problems with it. My first problem is that you have to pay for everything in the shop instead of earning points but I have played for about three months now and I haven’t a single coin and it is really annoying to have to pay money to be able to get more poke balls and revives. Another problem is that a lot of times when I go to a PokéStop and spin it, it won’t let me collect anything, and will tell me to please try again later even though I already tried but it didn’t give me anything. One of my last two problems is that I hate how you run out of poke balls so quickly because then the only way to get more is to buy with money, or go to a poke stop for only 3 poke balls, which gets really annoying at times. One of my last problems with this game is, I don’t like having battles that all you can do is tap the screen I wish it was like that you could actually choose your move I could use and you can dodge other moves like a real Pokémon battle and I think that would improve the game much better. Just being able to tap the screen taking in every single shot is really annoying. Also the blocks don’t really seem very Pokémon, since in actual Pokémon battles you don’t really have a big screen in front of you blocking so I think it would be better if you guys let us be able to dodge instead of blocking..Version: 1.161.1

I have a problemI have only just got into pokimon go and spent 2$ yesterday on a lure ( its not much money i know but i would continue to pay more if i hadint run into this problem) So today i come to find the game saying that i have been signed out and there is an authentication problem with every account i try, facebook, google and even creating a new profile.Version: 1.111.2

Research missionsI miss the legendary Pokémons from the 7 days research mission box so much. I didn’t understand how the people didn’t want legendary Pokémon but they were just ungrateful people, can u make the legendary Pokémons returns to the 7days mission please?As now only junkies Pokémons are given from this mission, which lower my motivation to doing it. It’s so hard to get legendary Pokémons even from distance raids because there are not always people can fight with u. And please release more 10km eggs, I have not gotten any for ages. It’s disappointing when only 10km eggs are the only thing that I want..Version: 1.151.3

While looking at Pokemon ....When you transfer or evolve Pokemon that aren't the first few it is so bloody annoying taking you back to Bulbasaur. This is a new "bug fix" in the last update? Come on. What a waste of time. When you have nearly 1000 Pokemon this is such a pain. Fix this now..Version: 1.57.5

Pokemon Go seriously need to fix This pleaseI love playing Pokemon go I play it everyone for a long time, at first the game worked perfectly no issues but now for me and for some other people who play this game it lags and kicks you off the game, when battling a friend and you send them an invite and they join and you both press ready to battle it won't start the battle. For me when feeding or trying to take a photo of my buddy it glitches out of the game and IK don't understand why. The game was working perfectly about a week ago but now it's lagging and glitching even when I walk 1 km it would come up as 0.01 or not even register. I use Apple but it's also Samsung some Samsung users who are having a problem with Pokemon Can you try and fix this please 🙏.Version: 1.149.0

Unnecessarily strict securityI became locked out of my account due to closing my old email account (I didn’t realise that was what I was logged in through, so my fault). I contacted support to help transfer my account to a new email, and I thought they were being helpful until I received 11 security questions to answer. Never have I had to answer 11 security questions, and for a game? Why on earth is there such tight security around a game? I answered them, however there were 4 I could not answer, which were very specific questions, such as “what was the last achievement you received in the game and what month did you achieve it?”. The whole reason I’m locked out is that’s it’s been so long, otherwise I’d just log back into my email, but it’s permanently gone now. How am I supposed to remember that? Yet I provided evidence that I am the owner of my Apple ID, a tax invoice of the last purchase I made through the game, the exact date I created my account and a bunch of other more valuable security questions. But because I cannot remember minuscule details from the last time I played the game, I am not able to retrieve my account. I’m not trying to log into my bank, I’m trying to log into a game! The security questions are ridiculous. Please change them and allow me access to my account..Version: 1.157.1

Trading waste of timeLove the Pokemon go idea it gets me out and about and I have always loved pokemon since my kids were little I’ve been using app from the start. I am extremely disappointed with the long awaited trading I find it totally pointless when you can only trade with the person standing next to you.... 🤦‍♀️ seriously what use is that I actually thought I might be able to get sone of the none Europe pokemon but apparently not! Gyms too are a little pointless it takes 3 fights basically to knock out an opponent no matter how much higher they are than you 🙄 not quite how they are supposed to work is it, my fantastic Blissey blah blah is no more use than a magikarp in the reality of the game so somewhat a waste. But that said I will continue to play purely because I like pokemon. Oh and fix the disconnection issue with the plus come on you are making money from it it should work properly!.Version: 1.81.4

Lags. Lags. More lags.We walk to a gym, start battling in a raid, use all the best and brightest Pokémons we have. The game freezes about 60 seconds in and then it runs the timer down. You spend a whole bunch of time and turns out when the app “refreshes” again, the raid is over and we get nothing - no Pokémon, no rewards - nothing. Then off course you have to spend your resources trying to revive your pokemons. Worst thing is that there is no way to contact the help support or anyone to ask to at least give us the rewards of the raid that we were well on course to win or to at least not cost us our resources like raid pass or revives if we couldn’t battle the raid cause the stupid app froze!.Version: 1.141.0

Fix the buddy feature ASAPI reopened the game after almost 4 years and almost forgot how to play it. There’s quite a lot of different menu’s, and it’s taken quite some time to relearn it’s complexity. I do enjoy the buddy features, though I struggle to be able to place the buddy in a room to gain stars for playing and feeding the buddy candy - the main reason I’ve detracted a single star. Even in a well lit room or space, the game struggles to identify places and is a waste of time opening during the evening when I’ve finished my shift work. I’ve also asked a question in the game regarding the ability to place your buddy on your characters shoulder (reflecting Misty and others in the cartoon TV series) however I received no reply. I don’t like the aspects of the game where spending money is required either..Version: 1.137.3

2019 and the game is buggy plus cheaters ignoredAs a new player who just started playing in 2019 and with high hope of becoming a loyal customer / supporting financially, i am devastatingly disappointed with my experience. Just a few days into the game ive came across a very very obvious cheater using multiple level 40 accounts to attack / defend all gyms in the surrounding local area. first its unfair to the opposition teams, second HIS own teammates wouldnt be able to get a spot thanks to his selfishness. I tried and reported this a few times to Niantic only ended up getting ignored, not even a single acknowledgement email saying the matter is being investigated. And today my character suddenly stopped moving completely and i have submitted a support ticket and not yet answered as well. I am very pessimistic with the integrity of Niantic’’s T&Cs as it seems they dont care about their own policy and the customers either. And i checked this with a few pokemon go communities in social media and they said dont bother, thousands of people have tried but Niantic doesnt do anything about it. So yeah my suggestion, if you want to play this game casually for free, then go for it. but dont get your hope up and dont even think to support niantic because they dont even care about you. I wonder if this review will get deleted by them also..Version: 1.125.2

Inconsistent and unequalAt first I would have given a 4* rating, however now I begrudgingly rate it a 1*. Disproportionately to my spend on for example egg hatches; my total of 4244 vs partners 1640, have not yielded many quality or shiny Pokémon. When it comes to catch or special events counts it’s much the same. So out of frustration and a feeling of falling behind you spend some more....and some more... without results. Then there’s the unsporting cheaters that spoof and/or have multiple accounts... reporting them doesn’t seem to bring results, not only do they do better, they do better on their multiple accounts. There’s also been some really inappropriate individuals miss using the game as a bullying platform, who seem to do so for many months before they’re either stopped or move on to targeting someone else. Which makes both the game and enjoyment inconsistent. Furthermore, if you own the newer iPhone the PogoPlus doesn’t work, and if like myself (an invested level 40 player) you where forced to upgrade to a newer phone as Niantic no longer supported the old phones software, you may be forgiven for feeling cheated!.Version: 1.73.5

How To Ruin A GameNo one company has shown itself to be more skilled at ruining a game than niantic. If you want to play a game that is riddled with bugs and over run with cheats than this is the game for you. Instead of targeting spoofers, niantic positively encourages cheating by rewarding spoofers with fistfuls of ex raid passes. Contacting niantic is hopeless, responses range from the stunningly ignorant to outright blatant lies, it’s easy to see that no one working there even plays the game and their mission statement must be to screw money out of players at all costs. I can’t even imagine just how bad they will ruin the Harry Potter game they are planning on releasing, whoever gave them the rights to turn that into a game needs their head examined..Version: 1.149.0

Good game but...Hello I have been playing Pokémon go for a while now and I am enjoying it a lot but their are some things that are annoying. One of those things being u need mobile data or a hot spot on to be able to go through the world to get more Pokemon. Luckily I have a poke stop within my wi fi range so I can still get Pokemon. I understand is impossible for you guys to make this game without having to use wifi but it does annoy me sometimes. Next thing is you need a pass thing that costs real money to participate in raid battles. They are basically the only way to get high cp Pokemon with out having to grind for a good encounter but I don’t think it’s necessary to pay for to participate in arias battle. I haven’t played for that long so their might be another way but yeah. That’s my honest review :P.Version: 1.131.1

PokemonGo has a big problem with step count rewardsI have been playing PG since 2016. It’s a great game in many ways. I especially appreciate the attention to getting players moving - increasing activity is so good for health - and it avoids the pitfall of most smartphone apps, which tend to incentivize sedentary behaviors. But recently they’ve started using language about “burning calories.” At the end of each week, the app pops up a notification that says “Congrats, you burned a ton of calories this week!” I have no idea why they would do this. First of all, it isn’t a weight loss or dieting app. Second of all, duh. You can lay in bed for a week straight and the human body will still burn about 13,000 calories. Calorie “burning” is a biological function that doesn’t need congratulated. Movement doesn’t increase it that dramatically, and increasing activity levels is laudable and healthy REGARDLESS of caloric effect. Thirdly, and most importantly, this kind of language is incredibly dangerous and triggering for those who are recovering from disordered eating and EDs. If the developers had consulted a medical or nutritional professional, they would know this. They are literally risking lives with this phrase. It would be very easy to correct. Do better, please. Also, minor, but when will we get alternate hairstyles? It’s so frustrating to be stuck with long hair just bc your avatar is female..Version: 0.129.0

Seriously thoughAs a Pokemon lover it’s great to be playing it everyday, and as sad as it sounds, it’s part of my routine now, whenever or wherever I go out to. I really do like the fact you can add a Pokemon to the gym that your team is assigned to, without having to battle getting in. I mean who had time for that? Especially when you’re on the move. So I really do appreciate it. But, recently I’ve noticed something very very irritating. Every time I come across a new Pokemon, they seem to run away from me, or any Pokemon that I want to catch. It’s really frustrating. Makes me to not want to play because I think well if the game is programmed like that then I just simply can’t be arsed with it. What’s the point. But it’s been continuous over the past few days. I’m hoping it’s just a glitch and everyone has experienced it, but seriously though. Why? It’s like teasing a dog with a treat it can’t have..Version: 1.61.1

Played since release.Game used to be fun, then Niantic started enforcing their definition of what kind of fun you should be having with their game. I used hacks and location spoofing specifically because of Niantic shutting down any tracking program and the abomination they call trading Pokémon. The game location services gives errors more times than it loading properly. The game decides when you’re actually close enough to the stop/gym to spin for items. Instead of finding the Pokémon you wanted in an accessible public area, you’re forced to wander around potentially trespassing because being able to track isn’t fun to Niantic. When you trade Pokémon, all stats are randomly set so giving /receiving good stuff to/from your friends is fubar. Trading mechanics are completely random to the point that a good Pokémon immediately becomes trash to be transferred. Instead of putting in trading or switching teams to make the game somewhat enjoyable to play with friends or convince other people it’s not a waste of time, they hold events in cities that are only for the people willing to send them money and travel 500 to 2000 miles away. As well, that’s assuming that the real life events aren’t disasters like the first few events in Chicago. You’re doing good following Nintendo’s model of just adding in more busywork rather than doing anything groundbreaking, guys. You’re right in thinking people only want a mile wide but an inch deep..Version: 1.135.0

Introduce trading? But can’t trade items?As much as I love this game and want to love it more I can’t seem to. This is the only app I would spend money on and yet with every update you fall short every time. Why can’t you trade or sell items that you have excess of? Why can you only trade Pokémon? If you are introducing Pokecentres, that’s good and all but what’s the point of me having 3 dragon scales after I’ve evolved my Seadra? There isn’t much. What’s the point of my girlfriend having 4 Kings Rock after she’s evolved Slowbro and Poliwhirl? Not a lot really. Waste of a reward system for 7 day streaks and just seems like the system isn’t as well thought out as it could be. I get that it’s hard to make a game as good as this but you guys fall short every time. It’s just lucky that the Pokémon Community is as big and loving as it is. And what sort of company doesn’t have an email where you can’t have some sort of free form text where you can actually explain a personal issue with the game. Your consumers have a right to voice there opinion to listen and it’s your job to listen. You say you are very supportive of the community but it feels like you guys don’t care about us and limit what we can tell you so you can hear what you want to hear..Version: 1.79.2

Fraud & Theft!! Horrible customer service!!I bought some pokecoins for my son and after the purchase went through they did not show up in the account. I called customer service and according to them I received them so they refused to add the coins to the account or to reimburse me for the purchase. I had to call my credit card company and report them for fraud and was reimbursed through them. This company is now being investigated by the Better Business Bureau and MBNA..Version: 1.139.0

No running eggs :(The speed limit on hatching eggs needs to be increased to 15 km/hr to accumulate egg hatch distance while running. 10.5 is too slow. This is the biggest downfall IMO..Version: 1.67.2

Frustrating glitchesI would rate game higher if it wasn’t for the constant glitches, like walking down the road and it comes up with you are moving to fast, or worse same message while sitting on park bench and you can see your avitar running around lost on screen. Often has network error when in full mobile service, the worst is just win a hard battle and network error loose the progress but still have to heal/revive the Pokémon ive used.Version: 1.127.1

Great Concept, But It Could Use PolishSo, Pokemon games are about getting Pokemon and pitting those Pokemon against other Pokemon, right? Well this game is just that, but without the second part. Sure, catching Pokémon in the real world with AR is genius, but it gets old after a while. And the only way to battle other Pokemon is going to gyms. Now, what’s smart about the gyms is that you need to be a certain level to enter certain gyms, which encourages you to level up more by, again, getting Pokemon. Now, what I mean by the battling part of the game not being there is this: it sort of feels like an afterthought. If your Pokemon faint in battle, you’re in for some SERIOUS grinding. First, you have to get potions from pokestops so you can use them to heal your Pokemon. But oh no! If your Pokemon aren’t leveled up enough, you can’t heal them! Wanna level them up? Sorry! Nope! YOU have to be a certain level in order to level up your Pokemon, AND THEN you can heal them. This is literally the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever experienced in a video game. Granted, gym battles are optional, but if the option is available, don’t make it so freaking tedious!! Although, I have hope that you will fix these problems, because this game used to have SEVERE internet issues, and you fixed that. So please, listen to my complaints and fix the grinding issues!!.Version: 1.57.5

Worst game by an even worse developerOnce the nostalgia wears off you'll realize this is a bad game. Boring and repetitive. After catching 3000 pidgeys you finally find a rare pokemon but oh, after 27 pokeballs it runs away. Thanks. If Niantic didn't spend 6 months trying to stop people "cheating" *read - actually track pokemon in games because the developer thinks that being able to see where a nearby pokemon is, is cheating. And they're too focused on making money to actually produce an in game tracker that works. So you wander around aimlessly until you happen upon something by chance and it runs away. The worst. I would happily pay to win if a different company was developing it but Niantic have ruined the game beyond fixing..Version: 1.91.2

Bad designGreat concept, poor design. This should have been made for everyone from day 1. The spawns should be random and based on movement exclusively. Would’ve saved the developers a lot of trouble and would have included rural players. I wanted to be playing this long term but it wasn’t designed for my locale. After all this time, it doesn’t deserve the attention for excluding a lot of people from the core gameplay experience..Version: 1.167.1

Unplayable. Zero stars.My game just crashed 12 times in the last hour (I have time-stamped screen shots to prove it). I have an iPhone 6+. No other app I’ve ever used has been like this. This game has been consistently glitchy since it launched 3+ years ago, and there have been times when it was basically unplayable for me. But I’ve been a lifelong pokémon lover, so I didn’t give up back then. I am seriously considering it now. Literally the only thing tying me to this game is Nintendo’s franchise. Niantic is terrible, and if any other company were to put out a pokémon game, I would dump this game in a heartbeat. Even though I love Harry Potter just as much (if not more) than I love pokémon, I can’t actually bring myself to play WizardingWorld because I can barely tolerate ONE Niantic game. Two would be impossible. Niantic needs to completely overhaul its entire programming department, because as it is it seems like they’re incapable of producing a halfway decent game. They might make a bunch of money, but it’s all through gimmicks. If they actually had a game that most other developers would consider worthy of making available to the public, they’d be making billions more than they are now. Update 6/6/20: Still terrible. My game just crashed 3 times in 2 minutes, costing me a raid pass and a lost opportunity to get roughly 1500 stardust. I’m really not sure what the recent server updates are supposed to have done. I see no changes. Still worst app ever..Version: 1.143.0

Lame Pokemon - loose interestWhy are all the Pokémon around local area always so boring. They’re so boring it makes you not want to play the game. When you open the app and there’s just some stupid bug Pokémon then I start thinking aw dumb... what’s the point and then I’ll close the app. Make it more interesting with more cool Pokémon. People will only play with those ugly Pokémon for so long and then stop playing. Like I’m about to.Version: 1.153.2

BugWhen I try to load the game it crashes it’s terrible.Version: 1.167.0

This game needs A LOT of work!!!!The game has a lot of potential, but it also needs a lot of work! There are so many things wrong with this game!! 1. It shouldn’t take more then 10+ balls/berries to catch a Pokémon. Especially if they’re just going to flee right after! 2. Raids shouldn’t be so hard! Not everyone can always go out when there’s a raid going on. Let alone find enough people to battle with them to get the legendary Pokémon. 3. The battle CP should be more matchable to the CP of your own Pokémon. A Basic Pokemon against a bunch of legendary Pokémon, that’s not really fair! No ones gonna win that! 4. Research should actually have Pokémon you can’t always catch in the wild. I have enough Zubats, thanks!! More rare Pokémon would be nice. 5. You should be able to earn more then 50 coins from a gym per day! Or be able to remove your own Pokémon from the gym whenever you please. It’s not worth it to have it in there more then 1 day. I know someone that had theirs in a gym for 45 days. Only got 50 coins. 6. Not everyone is at a high level, a lot of the events that take place can’t be done with low levels or basic Pokémon. Maybe make it fair for everyone and give everyone a chance to catch some rare Pokémon. The list can go on and on, hopefully better changes are In the near future for this game!.Version: 1.133.1

Bearable when it worksGreat intention behind this game when it first launched. Since then its became a constant grab for money with time not being devoted to bug testing. The game crashes, has many graphical glitches and other annoyances, which take the fun from the game. PvP was a great idea however it has broke the game in it’s entirety. There is to many cheaters and/or other bad mannered folk, to play the game as it was intended. I respect the free to play model as much as the next person however, there is definitely fairer and better ways of implementing this kinda model without turning it into a grab for money. Events can at times be worthwhile, however these are more targeted towards the newer players, and are rarely rewarding for those who have reached lvl 30 and beyond. The recent experience with this game has not given me any reason to believe the game can be played for enjoyment..Version: 1.139.0

Unfortunate timesLoved this game for a couple months until the recent update won’t work on my phone and crashes everytime and lags me out the app! I was gonna catch a lotad too... I don’t have that one.... who knows when I’ll see it again... that’s like 1000xp for a new Pokémon.... also there was a Vaporeon beside him... I have some of those but cmon, I had to sacrifice 25 eevees for it.... and yeah fix the app and give me a shundo lotad please. Seems fair..Version: 1.169.1

Not pleased currentlyI’ve been playing Pokémon go since it first came out. There have probably only been 2 game apps I’ve ever used for this long. There are two things I’m currently unhappy about. How difficult it is for rural players to get some action. It is at least 5 miles to the closest pokestop—-there’s no way of walking that far, which I thought was the main idea of PG (getting people more active). There is NO Pokemon spawning near my home. I can walk from one end of my road to the other end and there are 2 spots where they spawn. 2 lousy spots. Once I catch what’s there, it takes a while for a new one to spawn so what am I supposed to do? Turn around and walk the miles again for 2 more Pokemon? And the raid battles. There is no way on earth that a small town will ever get 17-20 people together to catch a legendary out here. It’s impossible even with social media. My second complaint is the lack of revives! I understand that you want to make money on the game but come on! Pokémon go is one of the few games I have spent money on. I have mainly bought lucky eggs and incubators. No way am I gonna sink money into revives. I guess when all my Pokémon faint I will just quit the game. It wouldn’t be as bad if there was a way to earn coins in the game. I used to earn a few coins by defending gyms but you hardly earn any coins currently..Version: 1.61.1

Decent game, but unless you spend real money you miss out on most thingsEven with max friend gifts daily, random free daily store gift you are veryyyyyy limited on what you can do playing this game for free. It is a fun game dont get me wrong but the battle system is very flawed and lazy, you could easily have every pokemon capable of 4 different moves AT ONCE like the Older but better pokemon games. Depending where you live you might not be able to see a poke center or gym or any buildings icons at ALL on your map while home so again certain people constantly have a advantage. Many glitches and modders on the game who can force you out of a battle and count 50 wins against you in 1 battle . Pokemon spawning system should be improved as well, and team rocket ballons are veryyyyy scarce . I hope they keep improving this game but really it just seems like most other phone games where its all about the money and very little actual quality and time put into making a good game, just a okay game that was super rushed and underdevoleped in EVERY aspect, not like any other pokemon game for evolving too? Whats up with getting rid of stones or having a inventory that is SOOoo limited you cant even hold 1 of every pokemon... suppppppper lazy. Please fix, i dony care if a game has to be 50 gigs or more, it should be quality, not rich kids auto advantage and free players play 10 times as long just to keep up..Version: 1.171.0

Waste of time, not fun anymoreThis game has literally just become a gate way to market other games such as Pokémon let’s go . Spawns are at an all time low with little to no variety in the wild Pokémon, legendarys are rendered quite useless, PvP still not out on iOS, continuous crashes on the game, no new releases of Sinnoh Pokémon in over 3 weeks and will probably be walking Meltan for the next year or two to evolve it because I can’t afford to buy a nitendo switch. I honestly used to love this game so much because it brought back memories of childhood and was a way to actually get out of the house and have fun. Now days there is no point..Version: 1.99.1

Half and halfIt’s a difficult one for me this game because when it’s good it’s really good and when it’s not it’s really not, i started playing it when it first came out and loved it but it soon got incredibly boring so I deleted it, recently downloaded it and it was great for a couple of months and now is boring again it seems like there’s just nothing to do in the game the field tasks are too difficult and never really amount to any decent rewards the Pokémon around are always the same when you beat a legendary Pokémon in a raid (which is difficult cause you need like 20 people) the Pokémon you’ve worked hard to defeat and catch comes with poor rewards and is low level. When they introduce new things in the game I’m rarely impressed the game itself looks so dull meaning they should introduce trainers like the bug catcher guy or swimmer or even double battles make it more like the nostalgic games we used to play also some trees or bushes instead of fluorescent green roads it looks awful, it is incredible addictive though and occasionally fun.Version: 1.171.0

I love the game but customer support is limited and I’m having some serious progression issuesAll in all I love Pokémon go. I started playing when the game first came out and played for about a year. After that I stopped playing for a while and only played on occasion. I have recently reinstalled the game and have having a lot of fun again! All the new additions they have made since the launch of the app complement each other nicely to make it a very fun and enjoyable gameplay experience. The only issues I am having is with the egg hatching and buddy Pokémon candy collection. No matter how much I walk my eggs are stuck in 0km meaning I am unable to hatch any of my eggs. This is the same for my buddy Pokémon. I have done all of the troubleshooting steps that are recommended. I’ve even uninstalled and reinstalled the game twice now to no avail. I have spoken with customer support after a full 24hours of waiting and they unfortunately were not able to help me. This is quite a major progression issue as eggs are a vital part of collecting new Pokémon and candy’s and I find them to be one of the more fun parts of the game. Other than that I really love this game..Version: 1.161.0

WasteWaste my raid pass.Version: 1.155.0

CrashIt always crashes and I have iOS 12 it won’t even load the game.Version: 1.167.1

Crashinngggggg againOh my god...this game has started crashing every other time when i am in a raid battle..Version: 1.141.1

ReviewOk so I would have rated it 5 stars if t weren’t for one thing that happened to me. Before a certain update (I don’t know which one) the game was perfectly playable and fun, but now I can’t even play properly as when I try play it just freezes, goes black and closes itself. In the description it says that it is compatible with IPhone 6, but that’s not the case for me..Version: 1.165.0

Brilliant concept, awful delivery, awful supportWhen it works the game is amazing and I absolutely love it. However I have unfortunately discovered that the more you play it the more bugs you’ll find in it. The developer (Niantic) often puts out poorly tested updates which lead to continuous problems and immense frustration, for around 3 weeks the game has been completely unplayable for me (iPhone 11 Pro). The in game support is woeful, at best you’ll have their issues presented to you as though it’s your fault, at worst they’ll ignore you for days then close your request. I have previously tried contacting them by email expecting that a formal complaint would get me somewhere - this was ignored for a month, when I replied to myself I received a generic message (in the middle of the night) asking for more details, 2 hours later I received another email saying my request had been closed due to inactivity. Long in the short; I chased this with the team, my issue was never resolved, I was never apologised to, I was not offered any explanation for my original issue, why they had ignored it for a month or why they deemed it necessary to close the request down. In summary, Niantic are a terrible games developer with an awful attitude towards their customers, they completely lucked out when they got the contract from The Pokémon Company, the game owes its success to the original concept that people got onboard with back in the 90’s..Version: 1.161.1

Crashes before I can even open itAs soon as I press the app and the Niantic logo comes up, the games crashes back to the home screen, I’ve deleted and downloaded the app countless times and nothing seems to work..Version: 1.143.1

Gotta crash 'em allIf this app works well for you, awesome. I can't play for 2 minutes without it crashing (then having to wait ages for it to start back up again). I've given up on battling since I can't get through a single one without the app crashing. I feel stupid writing this because I'm still using it, but boy do I wish I could play it properly. :( Using an iPhone 5S and no other app demands so much battery with such a high crash rate..Version: 1.125.2

OkIts ok.Version: 1.167.1

Catch em all? As if..Far too difficult to catch higher ranking Pokémon unless you know at least a dozen other players. Raids above level 3 are un-soloable so if you mostly play on your own or even with one other trainer then forget about ever getting the better Pokémon. Eggs hatched give you basic Pokémon. Why? Give a chance to hatch rare ones please! 10km eggs are as rare as Mew in this game. Takes forever to rank up Pokémon to any useful level. Played since the start. The game needs easier access to stardust and sinnoh stones. Once you collect over 250 candy for a Pokémon you should be able to trade excess candy above that for stardust. I’d suggest one candy for 1000 stardust. This would give you more incentive to keep catching the useless Pokémon that are the majority. Sinnoh stones are far too hard to acquire for all the Pokémon that need it to evolve. It’s ridiculous. Once you catch a certain amount of one Pokémon they should then be very, very easy to catch. Like 1 ball catch every time. Game is currently 9 parts frustration to 1 part rewarding in my opinion..Version: 1.151.3

I want my wife backWe were married 3 years before she downloaded Pokémon Go - this game has put extreme strain on our marriage. The game incentivises obsession, no matter where you are, you’re expected to log in every single day for a “streak”, I never get a break. I have no Pokémon-free days . Collecting Pokémon requires you to walk with your phone out. I’m never alone with my wife anymore. She always is somewhere else. We could be walking on the beach and she will be looking on her phone for Pokémon. It’s like everything around her is a distraction. We are together but I’m lonely. I play the game too so that I can be involved in her life while we are out in the world but I wish she was more present. The object of the game is to waste the other persons time (though the game does waste your time with insane loading times and connectivity crashes). You play capture the flag with Pokémon gyms and you “strengthen them” which essentially means build them to waste more of the opponents time since you can’t prevent the eventual capture. Daily “research tasks” involve repeating mundane game functions with no variation. Rare “shiny” Pokémon are available after absurd periods of grifting. You do get coins sometimes though. Anyway I still play the game because I have to. If I didn’t, we’d have nothing left. 2 stars because at least it’s not taking our money too..Version: 1.115.1

It’s quarantineOn the throwback quests, can you not put “walk your buddy till you get a candy” on it because it’s quarantine and I can’t walk anywhere and my house is small as hell and so is my backyard and my family won’t let me go outside.Version: 1.141.1

Niantic doesn’t care about COVID-19In the middle of a pandemic Niantic is shutting down the accounts of “spoofers”. Those are people who are still trying to play while they are quarantined. SHAME!!!.Version: 1.135.1

CrashingI have a iPhone 6 Plus and the game is basically unplayable, I can’t do anything without it crashing. If they can fix that then it would be a five star rating.Version: 1.167.0

Niantic are trash, but we already knew this.Another event messed up. False advertisement for events where they promise increased shiny rates but ends up just being old community day ones that you get and none of the advertised Pokémon. Some people get the event for free in some regions but not others - if you mess up, mess up for all players. The recent event I had to do too many tasks which took away from the time I could catch ‘shinys’. You also had to pay money for the event but choose to only be able to get half the shinys in event. The make up event was also given out for free and was just rubbish items for my bag, there was no extra event. I was refused a refund. Also constantly getting new bugs in the game and no new Pokémon. The game is geared towards battling grunts and online pvp which I find really boring. Give me new Pokémon from this gen and stop drip feeding them over months! I don’t care if you catch up, I don’t wanna play this game for 15years. Eggs - in the last year I have had 1 deino from a 10k egg and 3 from 12k. I have had 0 axew. The odds on these eggs are worse than a casino odds. Surprised this isn’t considering gambling how poor the odds are just like other games that are now being looked into..Version: 1.169.0

AmazingThis app is an amazing app! It is an amazing way to kill time and a great app to get your exercise in! There are a couple things that I think could be better. I feel there should be a chat space! So you can talk to the people you are friends with to meet up and do raids or battle together. Instead of having to download an app which even then you need to at least know there phone number. I feel you should be able to get more than 50 coins a day. Or at least be able to get a bonus for every continuous day your Pokémon is at a gym. Saying that I know that the prices to buy stuff is set to match the amount of coins able to be received each day. So if needed I feel it would be ok to up the price on coins a little. For trading.... I feel you should be able to choose what your friend gets. Or at least be able to put something in there for them besides a sticker. This also adds onto the fact that we need a chat system between friends to be able to tell what each other needs and or is receiving. I know you have the notifications for what your friend has received but it would still be nice to be able to say “oh thanks for the poke balls dude” or something along the lines of that. Overall this game is amazing! And I get on it several times a day. But I am sure other people have been saying things along the lines of what I have said! I mean none of this is no rude way but I do feel that these things should either be changed or added into the game!.Version: 1.147.0

Latest update issuesI have been really enjoying playing this game but I have found a few issues with this latest update, The first was that the game wouldn’t open, it kept crashing on the loading screen so I deleted and re installed the game, once I did that it loaded up but then took 10-15 minutes and three tries for it to accept my login. Secondly we have found an issue with the gyms, We have been within range of a gym (can see it but not interact) and either see it’s our colour or has very weak Pokémon so we decide to go take the gym and once we come close enough to interact the Pokémon either get really strong like they have only just been put in or changes from our gym back to a group of Pokémon that were in there hours before and had already been beaten. Also on at least one occasion we battled and won a gym only to have it glitch up and not allow us to put our Pokémon in and turn back into the team we just beat, also back at full strength. One game improvement that I’d love to see is in the journal to show more information when a Pokémon returns from a gym, e.g how long they were in the gym and how many battles it won..Version: 1.85.5

Logging into the gamePokemon Go, has taken over my life since 2018, and I love it, so why the one star? Three words, logging in continuously! Every time I’m playing Pokemon go, I get logged out the day after because of WiFi, and it’s annoyingly hard to get back on the game, especially with the new update where it’s Pokemon trainer club and niantic kids! I just wished that they would make it so that you don’t have to take a super long time trying to log in again but get rejected every single time, and I wish you didn’t have to use WiFi to be able to play, because that would just log you out instantly and it won’t work when you restart either, So NiANTIC, for the people who love your game Pokemon go even me, please fix it so that you can log into the app and play without using Pokemon trainer club or niantic kids, and don’t keep it so that the game will reject you when you try to log in, but aside from all those problems the game is great and it’s animated in an amazing way! But seriously Niantic can you please fix the problems I just said, listen to the other reviews here and make Pokemon go a game for everyone else and me as well, and if not welp I’m deleting unless you fix these problems I have with the game..Version: 1.159.0

Fun game, needs to be polishedLove the game. With the newer updates there’s a lot more to do in a more organized way. Most of the objectives of the game work flawlessly. The inner economy of items and Pokémon’s creates a wonderful system that makes you want to come back and play more. But, there are a lot of issues to still work out. One of which is the coins and gyms system. Right now, you can only get 50 coins per day. And a pokemon earns a single coin per 10 minutes in a gym. You would reach the max limit for coins in about 8 hours. This creates an issue, in which, if you have 4 pokemon in different gyms that have been in there for all over a day. Well over the limit. Meaning you could make 200 coins total, if they get defeated on different days. However, if they are all defeated on a single day then you only receive 50 coins for all 4, missing out on the 150. Currently, there is no work around this issue. You can’t recall your pokemon early, and if one gets stuck in a gym you are sitting there praying for it to be beaten. Another issue is with the combat leagues. When I first started the game with my most powerful pokemon at about 1000cp to try out the feature, the opponents were vastly unbalanced. I had to fight a 3000cp mewtwo on my 4th or so fight. It just seems that some of the features weren’t given enough time as opposed to other features of the game, and that lackluster approach clearly shows..Version: 1.137.3

Getting better, but...What happened with this latest update?? When delete, change a mon's name, or evolve, it brings you back to the top of list... Every time!! This version is not usable to do anything w the mons you've caught already. Please fix asap!!.Version: 1.57.5


Why should I report an issue with Pokémon GO?

  1. Pulling issues faced by users like you is a good way to draw attention of Pokémon GO to your problem using the strength of crowds.
  2. We have developed a system that will try to get in touch with a company once an issue is reported and with lots of issues reported, companies will definitely listen.
  3. Importantly, customers can learn from other customers in case the issue is a common problem that has been solved before.
  4. If you are a Pokémon GO customer and are running into a problem, appsupports.co might not be the fastest and most effective way for you to solve the problem but at least you can warn others off using Pokémon GO.

Is Pokémon GO not working?

Pokémon GO works most of the time. If it is not working for you, we recommend you excersise some patience and retry later or contact Pokémon GO.
