Description

Join Trainers across the globe who are discovering Pokémon as they explore the world around them. The newest update to Pokémon GO, the global gaming sensation that has been downloaded 650 million times and named “Best Mobile Game” by The Game Developers Choice Awards and “Best App of the Year” by TechCrunch, introduced the addition of over 80 beloved Pokémon among several other new features. Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Pikachu, and many other Pokémon have been discovered! Now’s your chance to discover and capture the Pokémon all around you—so get your shoes on, step outside, and explore the world. You’ll join one of three teams and battle for the prestige and ownership of Gyms with your Pokémon at your side. Pokémon are out there, and you need to find them. As you walk around a neighborhood, your smartphone will vibrate when there’s a Pokémon nearby. Take aim and throw a Poké Ball… You’ll have to stay alert, or it might get away! Search far and wide for Pokémon and items Certain Pokémon appear near their native environment—look for Water-type Pokémon by lakes and oceans. Visit PokéStops, found at interesting places like museums, art installations, historical markers, and monuments, to stock up on Poké Balls and helpful items. Catching, hatching, evolving, and more As you level up, you’ll be able to catch more-powerful Pokémon to complete your Pokédex. You can add to your collection by hatching Pokémon Eggs based on the distances you walk. Help your Pokémon evolve by catching many of the same kind. Choose a Buddy Pokémon to walk with and earn Candy that will help you make your Pokémon stronger. Take on Gym battles and defend your Gym As your Charmander evolves to Charmeleon and then Charizard, you can battle together to defeat a Gym and assign your Pokémon to defend it against all comers. It’s time to get moving—your real-life adventures await! Note: - This app is free-to-play and offers in-game purchases.

  • Can't even skip a song...

    I normally love playing Pokémon Go (level34) while listening to music on my iPhone 6S (with plenty of extra storage). The current version is so frustrating, I don't want to play at all. The startup screen takes easily 2-3 minutes to process before the game actually starts. Once I'm finally playing, I'm unable to even skip a song in the control center - unless I want to begin the entire startup process again. Every time I click the home button, for whatever reason, the app resets, and begins the tedious startup process again, upon my return to the app (which can be as little as 2-3 seconds). Also, Pokémon regularly disappear at random times and don't reappear until the gps has had a chance to ping again. I suspect Niantic did both of these things to make GPS more accurate, but let's be real. We all know players are not getting fair distance on eggs or buddy candy. Even IF players were being given any extra distance due to GPS inaccuracy, the minuscule amount doesn't make up for the fact that not all of our distance is logged to begin. Please fix this. Seriously.
  • Over It

    I hate the new gym update. It was hard enough to try getting in before, but now it's worse. After FINALLY beating a gym with friends and placing a Pokémon, it returned after maybe 8 hours just because I didn't go give it a berry. I got 5 stupid coins. At this rate I'll never be able to save up for anything in the store. I'm just going to throw all my potions away and keep trying to complete my pokedex - maybe. If I don't get bored. I was hopeful that the gym rework would bring good things, not make me want to quit playing half the game.
  • Still needs work

    The updates are nice and the game works well. But making the app read distance in the background (like most step counted) is a much needed feature! I can't have the app open for 8 hours while my phone is in my pocket, but I walk for my job. It'd be great to earn candy if I'm already walking!
  • New Updates are Great! Still nothing for suburban players...

    Super excited to see more multiplayer functionality added to the game! I've been a fan since Day One of the game. But...if you live out in the suburbs or in the country, there is literally no chance to play. At home, in my neighborhood, etc I get maybe two or three Pokémon spawns, and that's on a good day. And they are all of the same 6 types of Pokémon, so it makes catching Pokémon dull. The nearest Pokestop is a few minutes' walk away, fine, but it's the ONLY one in a mile radius. The nearest gym is 2+ miles away, and as it's suburbia--no sidewalks, so it's unsafe. When I play in the city or at the mall, there are Pokestops every few hundred feet, and dozens of Pokémon spawning near each one. As fun as that is, I only go places like that on the weekends. If we can't have more stops in the suburbs/rural areas, at least spawn more and varied kinds of Pokémon please? The different ones WOULD hang out in less populated areas right?
  • Once again, rural players are boned.

    Niantic one again releases a feature that is cool on paper, but royally screws the rural area players. Everything they do is meant for urban players. Think of the little guys you morons. I have to drive across town to feed my Pokémon, other wise they come home to me because they're bored. And if I go to sleep, which normal people do, they also come back to me. These new gym features have some cool ideas, but need some hard tweaking.
  • Spoofing is still rampant

    By Poproxboy
    Thought the update would stop spoofing, but it had no effect. The new graphics are great, I don't like the new battling system and some previously available aspects are gone. They just convoluted and churned the game. And now, play is so much slower. I think it's over for me, sadly...
  • Has it's problems, but still a fun social game.

    Better gameplay at gyms! Still buggy though. My Pokémon returned back with 20 coins... except they were never added to my coin total. :(

    The game crashes ever since the latest update came out. I have an iPhone 6s. And can you make it to where we can interact with the pokemon that have already been caught? Like petting, playing with like Pikachu or something? And phone to phone battles and trading?
