So a year playing it and things have gotten better. Like, gen2, new items, the ability to evolve certain characters you couldn't before. I loved how the gyms worked before. Not a huge fan on these "new gyms." I liked how they use to be. Now you barely make coinage and makes it seem like Niantic is forcing players to actually spend money on their app. I still play, but just to get pokemon now. The gyms aren't really that fun anymore.

I just now started playing after following the initial hype but not having a compatible phone at the time. I have been having a fun time collecting Pokemon and visiting various landmarks in my city. I would like to see a more social aspect to communicating with friends and making new ones at some point. Maybe some kind of messenger app to accompany the main app? Also trading and PvP battles somewhere down the road would be nice too! Full Review

Review: 10/25/2016: Still waiting on the trainer battles and trading you promised us, Niantic. Lowered to 3 stars. ORIGINAL REVIEW: Love the game, and the server stability has been very good despite the massive amount of users accessing the game. Looking forward to Niantic and their partners to get things stable, and I can't wait to see what updates come further down the line. Full Review
Garrison Farquharson-Keener Published date: July 21, 2017
I love this game. However, I am giving this app a poor rating because every time just before or right after an update the app just doesn't work. Basically you can't login, it is really frustrating. It takes about 2 or 3 days before I can finally successfully login again and by that time I lose my daily login rewards. It is ridiculous. So, apart from the continuous login and GPS issues gameplay is fantastic and fun. FIX THE BUGS!!! Full Review
Forrest Ferris Published date: July 19, 2017
Over one million negatives and growing. Congratulations. Loose balls too easily. Need to buy more because it's difficult to get free ones. Foreground app only and will not run in the background. Means that it drains battery quickly and I can't hatch eggs during my runs. And to others that rate it lower stars, like me, App developers don't care. Full Review
Zeri Blackheart Published date: July 20, 2017
This is a fun app, that gets you out of the house, and exploring your neighborhood. Even if you arent a fan of pokemon, you can have fun catching these cute critters and discovering historic landmarks, and parks, and other things right outside your window you may have never noticed before. Fun for the whole family too! Its a great way to get the kids (or grandkids) out for a nice walk. As for the game itself, it had a rocky start but it has found its feet and there are very few If any issues. Full Review

Bravo Update Guys ... There is nothing like update ... Your developer need to really work on increasing pokestop around country and specially in India ... I really like PG but i dont have enough time to switch city for your game ... You did great job in urban area... Now its time to Update ruler area too... Coz there is no fun in MOD version ... HOPE YOU CONCERN USERS SUGGESTIONS . Full Review
Cody Springman Published date: July 23, 2017
This game is amazing and has changed the face of mobile gaming forever. But you hype us all up for the new legendary raids but ever since they started, my "GPS signal cannot be found" and its almost been 24 hrs and I still cant play. Get it together Niantic.. Full Review
Abishek Kumar Published date: July 20, 2017
It's a futuristic game, it asssumes you have data service all over the place, which is not true. It has been twice now I was standing at a raid battle but couldn't join, it is very difficult to play it legit, so would be leaving this game. One more thing please provide joystick, because half of them are using it why shouldn't we use it then. Full Review
Kyle Brodeur Published date: July 21, 2017
I really enjoyed Pokemon Go. It was great since I walk everywhere. And I was really looking forward to everything that was to be added. However, I lost the ability to play when I lost access to my e-mail. I still have the same Google account, but it's under a new e-mail and it will not let me log in to Pokemon Go. I am devasted at the loss of all my friends, and I can't bring myself to start over. Still a fun game and I recommend to Pokemon fans. Full Review
Taylor Johnson Ness Published date: July 22, 2017
I'm still in love with this game. It has helped my extremely depressed and lethargic best friend go outside and have something to look forward too. Thank you for the frequent additions and events! You are helping my best friend, and I'm sure ma y others both physically and mentally. You are doing a good ;) Full Review
Amore Nero Published date: July 22, 2017
I've really enjoyed the game since it came out! And I'm really enjoying the new features! But for some reason I'm unable to join the the raids at all, it always gives me an Error sign.. I did the recent update in hopes it would be fixed, I tried again but it gave me the same message, I've had to pass on really good Pokemon cause I can't join, please fix soon as you can :c Full Review
Erik Bell Published date: July 21, 2017
I really like the overall concept of the game but I was hoping putting a lower rating would get my complaints noticed. Gym and raid battles are very very glitchy for me and I don't know why I have tried to fix it but nothing works. Also the distance counter on my eggs is bad I sometimes have to walk double as far as I need to which is annoying. Other than that the game is fun don't let my review discourage you from playing it. Full Review
Jeff Woodard Published date: July 24, 2017
I think that you give the people in Chicago the legandaries each time they get it every time and give the people in other cities a 2% catch rate even though everybody helped get them unlocked. Sorry bit I'm about to uninstall the game do to all the problems with the gyms as well. The game is going down hill fast in my opinion. Full Review
Speedy Eyebrows Published date: July 21, 2017
Would be better if they stipped limiting coins in dumb ways. Gyms would be more worth it if the limit was on the amount of coins per gym, per day. Not by coins per day in general. And not just per gym. Let people continue earning coins as long as they stay in the gym for multiple days, and don't bar them from coins they earned just because some other gym was claimed that day. Also, please let people have person to person fights and trading. There have been definite improvements, but there are still glaring issues. Full Review
Wesley Grant Published date: July 19, 2017
Fun game on enjoy playing with the family. Niantic has royally jacked up the reward system for keeping Pokemon in the gym. Now you're only rewarded for your inability to keep Pokemon in the gym... and no more then 50 gold a day. Great new update to remotely feed your Pokemon but what's the point? Full Review
James Crawford Published date: July 21, 2017
The location doesn't work. My girl doesn't walk anywhere near where I am. There aren't many pokestops unless I drive to the next town over. A town that I can't safely walk through with my children. I can't do raids, because if I can find a gym that has one, no one is around to do it. Maybe Niantic should put more time and energy into fixing that rather than banning spoofers. I understand why people spoof, because the only way to be able to actually do anything in the game is to spoof in a big city. I've dreamt of catching pokemon in real life since I was a child, and was super excited about sharing that love with my children. This game seemed nice to begin with, but I can't go to different towns often just to play it. Niantic is catering to those that live in big cities, and forgetting about the rest of the population. Full Review
Jason Huffman Published date: July 22, 2017
The game was a blast when it first came out. But now you just see the same Pokemon all the time, nothing new or nothing you need actually shows up. You have to drive over 50 miles just to maybe catch something new or something you need. The only time iys worth playing is when they do the week long festivals they have been doing. It would still be nice to catch all of the first gen and maybe start to see more of the good first gen amd second gen pop up. Almost to the point to where the game isn't worth taking up storage on my phone cause it never get opened up anymore. Full Review
Kimberley Cass Published date: July 20, 2017
Okay, so a year on and it's definitely a better app. In a way, I wish they had waited a year for release and just brought it out now - the hype may have lasted longer. Regardless I enjoy the game, it adds extra motivation to go for a walk when you don't have anywhere particular to go, and it is a pretty big thrill when you catch something rare (Polygon. Hell yes). But for God's sake, it needs some sort of sister app or... 'poke tracker' or something so you can run it in the background. I hate that if I want to go for a genuinely long walk I won't use it because of the battery drain. Full Review
Brian G Published date: July 22, 2017
The game is pretty fun, especially now with the gym improvement and raid battles. It's still lacking necessary features and it's time for Gen3 to make their appearence. I recently removed a star because of the past few Niantic events have fallen apart while underway. We need more things to do in game. Just give us IV appraisal. It currently takes too long. Full Review
Gerald Gonzales Published date: July 20, 2017
Connection has slowed down a lot. As soon as you open the app, it would load for a quick second then it goes and reloads after a minute or so. Network errors a lot during battles /raid. Unfair spawns as well, depends on what area you are. You get a lot of crappy pokemon if you're not in a major city. Full Review
Michael Spencer Published date: July 22, 2017
Hey you know how the point of this app is to catch pokemon... Yea you still can't do it instead you wasted time adding grass to the nearby system instead of fixing it. This app is a disgrace to pokemon and should be removed from the app store. You guys really know how to ruin an app shame on you. Edit. Still trash you spent 2 months have finally had 1 good update why wait 3 weeks for a small update. Oh that's right I forgot you were incompetent Full Review
Ink Bounce Published date: July 21, 2017
It's a little difficult to get Pokemon when you're not old enough to walk around alone in the middle of the night or in the day, add controls so that if you register under the age of 18 we don't have to move around? It makes it easier on children using the game that aren't allowed to leave a parent/guardian's view. Full Review
Angelina Crumpler Published date: July 20, 2017
Awesome game. My husband and I both play. Just wish eggs hatched quicker and that starters and rare pokemon spawned more often in Alaskan rural areas. Been playing since the day it came out and still haven't found any of the Chancey evelutions. But otherwise a great game. Gets me out and moving :) Full Review
Brad Campbell Published date: July 23, 2017
Since day one this app has been plagued with bugs and other problems that make the game almost unplayable. And they continue to make new features, inatead of fixing the game. Very dissapointed, i have loved pokemon since day one and will continue to play it till i die. Was very excited to play this game, but its just buggy and slow Full Review
Tyler Lucas Published date: July 20, 2017
How am I supposed to find any pokemon if I can't tell where to go. You give me 15 minutes to catch a pokemon and I have no clue where and no one else can tell either because they don't even show the same pokemon. Get it together. This used to be a fun game. Now it's just frustrating Full Review
Noah Shannon Published date: July 20, 2017
Stop trying to be somthing your not, this is Pokemon Go, not Ingress. I started playing this game because i loved Pokemon, not because i loved Ingress. Please think about how the people who live in small towns outside of the city who rarly see other Pokemon go players. People like us will probably never get a legendary because there aren't enough players for us to fight the raid bosses that are out now. Let alone a legendary.. Full Review
Michael Paterson Published date: July 24, 2017
The raid system sucks, especially for legendaries, it relies on having loads of people to help. So you either have to know a load of people who can be at the same raid at the exact time as you, or be lucky enough to find enough strangers to battle with. The timers are just rediculous and need to be extended. And there should be a system in place where you can set up battle party slots or pre selected pokemon for gym battles/raids that rather than that short time to choose pokemon before you battle Full Review
Mr Spams Published date: July 21, 2017
So its been about a month now and still cant to raids. Takes longer to put a pokemon in the gym than to take it over. Still cant access gyms when a raid is on. Still problems with gym battles, glitchy or health returns. Remote feeding has been disabled since its introduction? Lol the hardest thing about this game is to get it to work, to stop the app from just closing itself. I cant belive they are even talking about legendarys when alot of people still cant even jion in raids. Full Review
Tamara Tony Wickham Published date: July 23, 2017
I like the game its fun and its something that I can play with my kids. Moast of the time it's glitch free but today it's been a nightmare. We attended raids for the legendary pokemon and defeated the birds but the game kept freezing and crashing so we never got a chance to catch the legendary pokemon very disappointed. Full Review
Maverick Ignus Published date: July 24, 2017
While I wish that notifications for events would load the game and SHOW the details of the event instead of just loading the game. At least some way to see that an event is active that can be accessed easily. Other than that it's a good game to walk around with. Another quip I have though is that the Plus accessory would stay on for longer than an hour. I understand that it's a feature to save battery, but at least have a toggle to enable or disable the Plus disconnect after an hour. Sometimes I'm walking for more than an hour and I don't realize that the Plus has disconnected while attached to my belt. Full Review
Carnage David Zimmer Published date: July 24, 2017
Well I was upset with how Pokemon go fest ended but the 72 hour event made up for it. I will give you that 5 star rating but you're not out of the clear yet one more slip up and I will be giving you a permanent 1star rating. At least you tried to fix your mistake so I feel you deserve a second chance. Just don't screw it up. Full Review
Andrew Rice Published date: July 19, 2017
It's a great game but there are a ton of bugs still like the one I've been fighting with for 3 days. It says that it's unable to retrieve my game data but I did a couple of methods to see if my account was banned which it's not because I tried making a new account with my old username it said username not available over all it's a great game I'm slowly becoming disappointed in it Full Review
Jazmin Napoles Published date: July 20, 2017
I have noticed it still heats up my phone and drains the battery too fast unlike other playing apps. Also there are like no poke stops or gyms in Bakersfield at least not west on Panama Ln which sucks, probably doesn't help the entire neighborhood is new. Full Review
Garrett Published date: July 22, 2017
Why don't you let us transfer multiple Pokemon at once? I will not sit here and play this game for an hours deleting all the Pokemon I needed to catch to level up. It's so boring. Especially since I haven't played since it's release. I'm deleting this again until I know you can transfer multiple Pokemon. Scam not paying to upgrade my poke box. That's BS. Full Review
Matthew Thomsson Published date: July 23, 2017
Niantic, you blew it. Big time. The Pokemon GO Fest was a total disaster and you show you don't care that already millions of people have already stopped playing this game and more are to follow. In my area there is hardly anyone left playing this game and it's not worth trying to raid battle, especially for Lugia and Arcticuno. You and especially John Hanke should be ashamed of yourselves. To all who still play this game, is it even worth it anymore playing this headache inducing, boring as hell game? Full Review
Itachi Uchiha Published date: July 19, 2017
Nice texts. Graphics run smoother. Daily bonuses are pretty cool. I just don't like the new speed cap for pokestops. I'm fine with having to walk for Pokemon and eggs and buddy KM, but sometimes I have to drive around to find pokestops to fill up that 1000 spaces in my bag. Please change. Full Review
William Jewett Published date: July 20, 2017
Still has too many issues. Sitting in my house and switching apps apparently means I have exceeded speed limits and mons disappear. Then they take forever to reappear. Your efforts to prevent people from playing while driving are excessive and detract from normal gameplay. Login takes forever. Gyms force crash frequently. Full Review
Jenni Kelly Published date: July 20, 2017
Occasional freeze when catching pokemon. Server connection problems. Gym crashes. Too easy to get kicked from gym without getting any coins. Cant do raids with partner because level too low so we dont go out as much. Full Review
