My wife and I have been playing this game since it came out. We have had a lot of fun. Rcently, all the gyms in our town have been taken over by a bot. When we take a gym we get kicked out within a couple minutes with no one around. The gym the quickly escalates to level 10, again, with no one around. The cheating bot is named Gastly75. I have filed a complaint Niantic but they have done nothing. My wife and I will just have to find a better use of our time. Full Review

I love the game. It's awesome and gets you outside and meeting people. I can deal with the server crashes and what not. It's still a beta. I would like to be able to trade and battle friends outside of a gym to train my pokemon. I also feel that instead of just throwing the ball to catch a pokemon, we should be able to battle them first. Just like "walking in the tall grass" on the games. Full Review

All I want is stability improvements. Stop changing the game until you can manage that. The game keeps crashing and freezing and glitching out, but hey! At least everything is different now! Who cares if it's constantly falling apart at the seams? Not me! Gotta catch 'em all! ð Full Review

From concept to execution this app is genius. It works like a dream on my s7 with only a few, very minor, issues. Love the new update, when hunting with friends, the same Pokemon appear at the same time for us all. So much fun. Can't wait for one on one battle and trading. Good work guys, thank you. Full Review

Used to love it until the recent update. I even just bought the pogo+ and gameplay somehow got worse. Loading time is terrible, pokestops don't register until you are out of range. Ultra rare Pokemon run after the first throw even with a razz. Trust this game used to be cool. Now I feel like it's trolling me. If the game gets better, so will my review rating. Full Review

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

I love this game it's so interactive and fun! People aren't cooped inside all day , they are walking around having a great time! I still play this game even today when nobody else does, because Niantic has really fixed all the bugs and are even making it better ,in fact there are raid battles now and something new is happening to the gyms!!! I'm so happy with PokÃ©mon Go. I've loved PokÃ©mon ever since I was super little and now it's a reality. Thanks so much Niantic and Nintendo! ð Full Review
Xobb Felane Published date: June 20, 2017
They went and sold too few tickets even though the park holds way more people. All these scalpers pop up but screw the honest players who just want to enjoy a day together. Niantic you hecked up for the last time. The bugs I understood but this? This is ridiculous. And of course they won't listen to anyone because forget the people who remained loyal. We don't mean a thing. Full Review
Alyssa Bergstrom Published date: June 21, 2017
I love this game so much, at least I did until it wouldn't let me log into my account. I've don't everything I can think of, I uninstalled and reinstalled it, I updated it, I even changed my password. No matter what I do I keep getting an error saying it was unable to authenticate my account. This has been going on for three days going on four. This isn't happening to any of my friends accounts so it's just me. My username and my password are spelled correctly. So I have no idea what the problem is. Please help Full Review
LuckyKai Published date: June 22, 2017
Love this GAME! Though sometimes, I CAN'T fight in gyms because I'm too far away... Can you make a function in this game so you can battle players from all over the world just from your location... ANYTIME?? And why would people wanna spend $2 just on clothing for your character?? MAKE IT FREE!! If you do, I'll rate this game 5 stars and please give this comment a ðð¼!! Full Review

This is the most unstable game i have ever played. When it was first released, it did offer a tracking solution to the pokemon, then updated - gone. I got bored of roaming in the wild, so i deleted it. Then on March this year, i downloaded again just because of the nearby feature - show you where the pokemons are by local landmarks. And yesterday, I played it again to find out the feature is now gone again?! To developers: if you want to do it, do it right and set your mind to it. Don't be like this! Full Review
Darren Gattesco Published date: June 22, 2017
Pokemon spawning at gyms and tracking them has improved. small cities and rural areas have a much harder time playing the game. Not nearly as many spawn points or pokestop. Need more at places like restaurants and bars. And I wonder what there plan is for winter. With neg 40 Celsius weather it's not like we can go outside and play on our phones. I basically didn't play from October till may Full Review

Since the latest update. Locked out for 2 days. 're installed twice already now locked out again. Constantly saying cannot connect to server. Lost daily log in bonuses. Used to play for hours now spending hours trying to even log in. Full Review
Zach Kris Published date: June 22, 2017
Game is more bugs than content. Every new update is one step forward, three steps back. I have never seen a company fumble intellectual property so hard. Constant server issues with ZERO explanation, ZERO apologies. And if you fell for the Go+ joke, you were sold a NON WORKING prooduct which they refuse to comment on. Full Review
Francis Montry Published date: June 22, 2017
Gyms still dont work. Keep getting that they are still under maintenance. Gyms are 90% of the game and with out them this game is worthless. There is no variety of Pokemon and no trading. Its sad when a company has to scam Pokemon's followers. With at the beginning they showed commericals with 1v1 battles and trading. Still yet to see that. Full Review
R W Published date: June 22, 2017
This game is very fun and they did a good job of fixing peoblems with the recent updates. That being said, I need more from this game. The potential is there. Pokestop/gym moderated message boards, trainer battling, contests... i would be willing to host events in my area if Niantic decided to have user moderated contests/tournaments and message boards. Give the people what they want! Full Review
Jen Robertson Published date: June 21, 2017
When I first started playing really enjoyed but last few weeks I'm getting repeat common PokÃ©mon and my GPS which had not been a problem at all now has me two or three streets away from where I actually am. Not happy with new update, fix the GPS lock and help people who are not able to get out to go hunting. Review may improve if you improve the quality of the game. Full Review
Christopher Milton Published date: June 21, 2017
The game to me has definitely improved since my last review. On my current account I am level 23, and have only been playing for about 20 days now. I got to partake in my first event since joining the game last summer and I loved it. With the gym overhaul there has been a new gym added to my city. Overall the updates only improve the game. Pokemon Go is a fantastic addition to the Pokemon franchise. Full Review
William Gortemiller Published date: June 22, 2017
Oh cool! You guys were able to add a sliding tab for the Raid on the Nearby PokÃ©mon screen! Now why can't you do that with the wild PokÃ©mon that are nearby and NOT at a PokÃ©stop??? Do that and I'll give you four stars. Bring back the footsteps and the ability to actually hunt down wild PokÃ©mon and you'll be five star worthy, and I'll be strongly recommending everyone to play again. Full Review
Jo Draper Published date: June 20, 2017
Had the last 24 hours without access to my trainer account. Getting fed up with all the glitches. Lost my daily streak bonuses and last day of the event Pokemon. Not happy with the treatment loyal, paying users get. Still few pokestops, gyms and rare Pokemon for non-city players. And still the stupid inability to collect items or Pokemon when a car, bus, coach passenger. Full Review
Tyler Cavenaile Published date: June 22, 2017
Still disappointed. I started on this game last summer and stopped because about 90% of the time the game couldn't be played. You can't play it outside of internet range, there's no PvP battles, and it looks like pokestops are fairly well broken. It's also getting rather annoying with these little teases to the new gyms, which will likely also be a disappointment since the developers have been extremely vague about them. You would think that in a community driven game, the community would have more leverage and understanding in the development process, but no. Just more garbage. Pretty upset that this is what a major part of so many childhoods has sunk to. Can't believe I spent money on this. Full Review
Sal Flores III Published date: June 20, 2017
There's a few issues with the sever and battery life usage. When you open the app, there's a chance of not being able to play due issues with the sever. There is a power save mode in the settings. When you close the app and come back to it, the settings go back to default. This means if you turn off the music, it will go back on or if you put power save on that it will go back off. I understand that this is a new game but these are a few things you guys can look into and improve to make this app better. Full Review
ayla prest Published date: June 21, 2017
Its a great game for all those fans of pokemon and those who have never played! There are some improvements I think would benefit the game.. such as, more pokÃ©stops in rural areas. I have 1 gym close to me and only 3 pokÃ©stops in a 10 minute radius. I find this a hassle and I'm less likely to go out as it takes so much time. If niantic opened a pokÃ©stop thread I think it would really help. I know I would deffinatly play more. I think berries should last 2 poke ball throws as well because it's such a waste of berries if you're trying to get a rare pokemon but you have to use a berry each time as when it pops out of the ball it removes the berries effect.

This game is awesome! I've had no issues with anything. The gym rework is going to be awesome! Screw the whiners, keep making it a great game! Sold out in less than 2 min? Those are your real fans! We will see you in Chicago! Full Review
Alicia Slingerland Published date: June 21, 2017
The most recent update is horrible. Pokestops don't register (always says try again later) and there are virtually no more pokemon. Last week they were everywhere and now today nothing. I saw 1 pidgey. I live in an area where stops are far and few between, need the ones we do have to work or give out more than 2 pokeballs per stop. They want you to have to spend money. Full Review

I will always love Pokemon. But I started hating this game. In city there are more Pokemon than village or forest how can it be. In Pokemon shows there are more Pokemon in city side or village. Most of Rare pokemon live in far from city. The game will go pathetic if legendary Pokemon introduce. If the legendary Pokemon get caught how the nature will be stable. ridiculous raid battle, a trainer in u tube can't play this even he is level 40. So how i can able to play it my level is only 23. Niantic is goning to mad Full Review
Stephanie Carreno Published date: June 21, 2017
I think Pokemon go is wonderful, I would really want login rewards too. Some people cant go out of their homes because of a sickness. If they go out they can die so if they ran out of pokeballs they cant do anything. Or if your mom wont let you go collect pokestops because you cant bring your phone or tablet with you... I really think login rewards are needed. Full Review
Matthew Michelberger Published date: June 21, 2017
Ever since the most recent update, the game had forced me to log out of my account; no big deal. But then I tried a whole variety of passwords to get back in and the game wouldn't let me log in. So then I decided to go reset my password. Now just so you know, I only have two email accounts: 1 Roger account and 1 gmail account. I tried resetting my password with both the accounts and everytime I tried it, the game claimed that both emails do not exist. Well guess what, THOSE ARE THE ONLY TWO EAMIL ACCOUNTS I own and I know for a fact that one of them works but supposedly both of them don't. DUMBEST EXCUSE. DO NOT DOWNLOAD. Full Review

The Nexus 5 is not compatible with this game after the latest update, they stole my money! Update: Still unable to play after the latest update, Niantic still has no love for their users. Update: Months later and still no fix in sight. Don't give Niantic any of your hard earned cash, they are thieves! Update: Still can't sign in. Full Review

Will I used to be an avid daily player but stopped about 3 months ago due to problems logging in, GPS loss, lagging etc. I've just come back but reading the reviews it seems the problems are still there only they've added a few more! Will give it one more chance but it seems I can actually live without it. There was a time where I couldn't. Such a shame that they don't sorry out these persistent issues before added more stuff to cock up. Full Review
Goth Fvck Published date: June 21, 2017
Connection and GPS issues in this app when others work fine. Ease of life functions lacking. Not a tremendous amount to do. I expect far more from these long standing companies. Seems almost like an indie game with good art. Customer support illiterate and it takes several e-mails for them to comprehend a point. Full Review
Muscles C Published date: June 20, 2017
Gyms are useless now. They won't you collect coins when you want to and it's harder to stay in gyms now that it's only 6 spots instead of 10. They Speed locked pokestops recently but still allow you to buy from the store..... Eggs stop at .99 sometimes and restart at .25. So if i have a 10K egg that is at 1.99 and a 5k that is at 4.99 the 10K egg will be at 4.24 and the next five k will be at zero. this is a major problem I hope they don't mess this up in the next update. Also many gym error problems and speed messages when I am standing perfectly still. And when I use a berry and get an excellent throw the Pokemon will run away. Eggs are even harder to hatch due to the recent update. Try your best not to update. They also allow spoofers who use the word spoofing in their names and still won't delete them Full Review

really fun! i use this to exercise and feel like i get a prize from walking or biking. but, i do wish there were more selections of hair STYLES because the current hairstyle my avatar has is not even close to my real hair. my avatar is female, and she has long hair. but my hair is as short as a pixie. Full Review
Red Stark Published date: June 21, 2017
Please allow AR mode to run using a device's accelerometer instead of gyroscope. Or just overlay the pokemon over the camera (effectively replacing the static background with the camera view). So many devices don't have gyroscope and it is really disappointing to miss out on the blended reality experience. Otherwise love the graphics and joy of catching pokemon in my area :) Full Review

Still can't get into my account. Customer service just keeps repeating itself...help me please. Been about a year now of asking for help...useless. haven't played since the second generation arrived coz they can't reset a password. Useless! Full Review

Been playing PokÃ©mon all my life and now a brand new spin on the game has come out. Issues occurred, but that was only because the game was brand new and grew quickly! I have had amazing experiences meeting people and hanging with friends. I am truly happy with this game and am looking forward to catching them all! Full Review
Neia Dreamfire Published date: June 21, 2017
Can't loginâ and I love how only a couple of things where fixed when the major problems is signing in and gps tracking has those been fixed? no I'm getting fed up with waitingâ I mean seriously. Worry about getting people able to play and then worry about the new stuff otherwise this game should just disappear off the face of the earth. Full Review

PokÃ©mon Go is constantly improving. Have loved the adventure aspect of this game the day it released and look forward to each event and update Niantic constantly brings. They still need to improve quite a hit of things such as customizing your character and the occasional lag but I enjoy it. Full Review
Daniel Fletcher Published date: June 22, 2017
I love how slow this loads now. I often look for games that take awhile to load. Give me time to change my mind and uninstall it. I also like they added raids but apparently, you have to be a super high level to use that feature. A 20+ level isn't good enough. Hopefully they will let us use the gyms instead of having them under construction all the time. Please make the app bigger with the next update as well. Full Review
Helen X Published date: June 20, 2017
I really want to rate this higher, but the sheer volume of PTC server outages drag the whole thing down. Not much of a fun game if you don't even know if you can log in and you lose your every day log in bonuses because the servers are down yet again. Full Review
