The game has lost most of it's fun. When the game first came out pokemon would spawn within a shott distance from my home. Even in my front yard. Now I have to go a good distance to find anything. There used to be rare pokemon that would spawn nearby but not anymore. I could deal with the over abundance of common type if pokeballs weren't so sparse. Everyone I know is always out of pokeballs. I want to play but its kind of hard to do without any pokeballs. Full Review

I love po-go. It's a great game but not for everyone. Po-go is playable for them who are rich, can spend money travelling and for them who lives in metro cities. If you are in a rural area forget about getting decent pokemans and satisfy yourself with ratatta, pidgey in the wild and level 1 raids cause you can't beat a level 2 raid boss alone. But you won't have eough pokestops or jyms there so forget about raids too. You will be like ash who never caught a legendery pokeman. This game is getting better yes but not for rural areas players, not for me. Apparently you need gyroscope sensor in your phone to use AR mode in pokeman go or your phone sucks. Quiting. Full Review

Playing this game in England is so much fun! However you guys gotta show Cyprus, especially Paphos, some love! There aren't many Pokestops around, I see many places that could be Pokestops, example Churches and Statues etc, but there are not. The only Pokestops are in the middle of the town, and there are only a handful, and there are just a few scattered one's here and there. Overall I think Niantic are doing a great job, and I don't get why people complain so much about you, however I would like to see a feature were you let the players help you and add pokestops, by providing location, photos, and reason to why that area should be a Pokestop! Let's all help shape the game, and give everyone a better experience! Thank you Niantic! Full Review

Transferring to SD is STILL broken! Can we have yet another update to re-enable transferring the app data to SD? Transferring it to SD WAS possible in previous versions. But, various updates regularly break it again. The option is there, but it keeps giving a generic error message. It isn't my SD card, I have a genuine 64GB Samsung Evo Plus. It is definitely the app itself causing the issue, as I could transfer the previous versions fine. And especially as every single other app with the option to move to SD works fine. This is the only app on my phone with this feature that it intermittently doesn't work. Full Review

This game is absolutly brilliant. Not only has it got be out and about I'm spending time with my daughter playing it. The raids really bring people together and everyone I've met a really nice. Need gen three now tho so will have to switch off for a few months because it gets boring inbetween releases. Full Review
Christopher Zapata Published date: January 19, 2018
The last few updates have made the game a whole lot better than when it first came out. No longer do I have to wait for several minutes only to be told that I cannot log in! Only thing I miss about the launch version is the distance indicator on the pokeradar. Full Review
erik aparicio Published date: January 20, 2018
Overall great game play. Having many issues with sign in to my account since day one because I have a Pokemon trainer account. I thought this would give me an edge on the game play but it's quite the opposite. If I see a cool Pokemon outside I catch it and try to catch it for my girlfriend but then the app says "unable to authenticate" and then I try logging in back to my account but I also get the same error message. The error message last the whole day. I'm using the Galaxy S8 so I know it's probably a server issue because I can log in fine with my brother's account on the Google email instead of the trainer account that me and my girlfriend have.

While I absolutely love the game, it's a lot of fun to play and get out to explore your area. Is anyone else annoyed that you now can't remove extra event Pokemon?! We already have limited space and now you won't let us remove the extras? That's annoying. Other than that, great game! Full Review
Jared Murphy Published date: January 19, 2018
Wow.... A company that ACTUALLY listened to the complaints, and corrected them to the best of their ability.... Impressive to say the least. Love this game. My son and I get to play together, AND it's one thing that gets him out of the house. Really appreciate everything about this game. Full Review

A truly unique experience which constantly filling with fresh ideas. I'm still having fun with this game more than a year after its debut. I've made real life friends through it, bonded with old ones, and used it plenty of times as an excuse to go outside. Full Review
Ron Black Published date: January 21, 2018
I stopped playing when an update hosed every thing up about a year ago and had not been fixed a month later. I decided to give it another try. Now this stupid app says that I don't have an account. I want a FULL REFUND for all the real money I put into this when I did play every day. I am not about to start over and I still had almost $20 in in game currency that I had not spent. Full Review
Lauren Bailey Published date: January 20, 2018
Although I do love playing this game it is really frustrating that there is no pokestops or gyms where I live! There are lots of parks where I live so there is potential and it would make it a lot more fun to play as at the moment I am missing out on raids etc. There is a really low spawn rate as well so I only catch about 1 to 2 Pokemon a day in this area! Also you really should bring back being able to train your Pokemon in gyms! It was a lot of fun and a features that is really missed! Full Review
Published date: January 20, 2018
I think its a great game.theres heaps of pokemon that ive never seen before. The gameplay is great, no controls you just have to walk around the streets. It would be better if you could just walk around without the game open and your eggs would incubate.the best thing about pokÃ¨mon go is the veiw point behind the pokÃ¨mon.i think that pokemon go is great.

Don't expect any help if you have issues. Been getting unable to authenticate for the last week when trying to get in. Have reinstalled dozens of time and nada. Troubleshooting online does no good Full Review
Published date: January 19, 2018
Please make some changes about assign pokemon to gym defend. It's not funny every time it prompts up "The gym is under attack. Please try again later." No longer fun about gym. Also, still no one find out the pokemons "sort by HP" function is the same as "sort by CP". Full Review
David B Published date: January 20, 2018
The new parties are bad because in raids, you can only choose from your parties. That is a problem, please remove the parties. Also, the community event releases the event at one time zone so it could be really late or early, making it an all day event would make this a lot more minor. Otherwise the game is amazing.

I love this game. But since last second version update, I faced problem with gps error when I was at indoor. Even worse with this recent version update, I am having this gps error problem when I am at outdoor. It make me annoying and unable to play the game smoothly. Full Review
Nathaniel Gonzales Published date: January 20, 2018
My buddy pokemon is bot gaining any candy and the meter isn't going up after walking I noticed that my pokemon's meter didn't go up so I switched the buddy pokemon and the same problem happened. Another glitch is when entering the pokedex it doesn't allow you to scroll down unless you click on one of the three pokedex icons. Full Review

I think it might be better if you add joystick in your game because many peoples like handicapped are not able to play this game. It is a lot of trouble for people to move around and it also have caused a lot of accidents and iwould like to suggest the niantic to add joystick in the game. It might attract the players who stopped to play the game due to the trouble of walking. So plz add joystick in the game. Full Review
Stephen Allison Published date: January 20, 2018
I love this game and have been a huge fan on the series. that being said I would like to catch something I'm looking for instead of wandering aimlessly for hours on end with the only hope of finding a good rare in the eggs now which you severely limit incubators. someone actually made your tracking work why not just employ these people and get them to fix your programming And make this game great or you can kiss your fans and money goodbye! Full Review
sarah hensley Published date: January 20, 2018
I'm only giving it 4 stars because I can't transfer event pokemon and they are taking up to much space. Please fix it to where we can transfer any pokemon... Other than that its a great game!!!! Please allow transfer of event pokemon though. . Full Review
Charlie Buckner Published date: January 20, 2018
Love the game. To those who want Niantic to add a joystick, it would make no sense to do so as it defeats the purpose of the game which is to encourage people pokefans (like me) and many others to embark on their own journeys, meet new people and have fun playing a Pokemon game that is built for the outdoors, and for fulfilling our dreams of becoming true Pokemon trainers.

Vincent Gammage Published date: January 19, 2018
And still is! Niantic, you are getting better. So is the game. So I figured you deserved an updated review. I miss the nearby tracker, but I understand why it is gone. The addition of buddies is also good. And the server load issues are gone. You give me PvP and a better tracker and you will get 5*s Full Review
Bobby Ward Published date: January 19, 2018
So much potential wasted - at first the little problems with the game could be accepted due to it being a new game however after nearly a year they aren't much further along. The gym battling is still weak and bots are able to hack into them all the time even when reported. The game has become completely tedious. No legendaires, No trading, No battling, Not enough shiny Pokemon, not enough daily bonuses, needs to be a month bonus system. Such a shame .... Full Review

Why there is no debug on "GPS signal not found" errors? It's been a while and very annoying. Hope to see provement here soon. Full Review
Barrie Wilson Published date: January 21, 2018
I really liked this game in the beginning but the mass of glitches, and problems with raids has really put me off. The total lack of customer care is also a massive issue. Niantic are quite happy to take our money but have done nothing to address the mass of glitches that still persist in the game. It needs to be sorted as there is a mass of disgruntled users all over the web that are very quickly going to become ex-users. Pull your socks up Niantic. I also think that the arbitrary manner of the gym control bonus ball is unfair. Why should the team that controls the gym get extra balls???? Also why are revives not dropping any more??? REVIVES!!!!! Full Review
blackstarlight17 Published date: January 20, 2018
The game is a lot of fun, however there are times it glitches. The most annoying part is the speed limit. My mom plays, but she can't walk much. She can only play if we're driving. One of us is the passenger who plays, while the other focuses on driving. I understand the speed cap, but it gets ridiculous to have a passenger option when one still can't catch/spin passing PokeStops. Full Review
Jennifer Deily Published date: January 21, 2018
Wonderful game, fun, and enjoy. I love it and try play everyday but with pollution air and not able play much. May someday if I am move different place. When update and lot better and love weather system find pokemon and I what look for! There is some bugs events sometime but not worry. By way Please set up alerts for event as hr of shiny pokemon and others so we not miss event hrly.. Full Review

Over all good , but battery consumption very high and one thing has to improve i.e when player assign a Pokemon to a Gym poke battle with other notification sent to that player if he ready then battle start between those players manually..then it could be pretty interesting... Full Review
Bobby Billy Published date: January 19, 2018
Overall really great game and concept but needs trading PokÃ©mon with other players and battling wild Pokemon in order to catch them and level up your own Pokemon. UPDATE: Love the interactive weather map now. Full Review
Umm Really Published date: January 20, 2018
The scrolling to the top bug is fixed so here is the promised 5 star review...The event was really fun..I even got a shiny pikachu and went from 1.1 million out of 1.5 million to 1.46 needed with my mass evolves of the new Pokemon and all the weedles and pidgies I saved up. I can actually hit kyogre a lot more too and got one with 2320 cp during the event...I really enjoyed community day and the updated pokemon...the pokeballs glitch where it stays for the next encounter is pretty minor I'm sure it will be fixed eventually. Thanks for listening to your fans I had a great time. ð Full Review
Katie Rek Published date: January 20, 2018
I really enjoy the concept of the game. However with my new Motorola every time I start the game up I am having to reset the location settings just so the game will work for me. Please fix this. It is rather irritating. Full Review

I like pokemon go a lot but its full of bugs still now... Before the update it was good but after the new update it is disturbing a lot... Plz fix it soon.. I hope you will proceed with the working soon.. But although i like this game... nice game by the way Full Review

Great game...updated review 1/20/19 haven't played since 2016 but the game is still goof. I find myself logging in to check on my Pokemon from 2 years ago about time to start grinding again! Full Review
Prodigal Son Published date: January 19, 2018
The Grind this game requires is horrendous, and never comes close to a reasonable amount of reward for the frustration. Beyond that, at least where I live, the game is totally dominated by "Spoofers". Niantic has a built-in reporting system for players to report them, but unfortunetely, it turned out to be a token gesture. After multiple reports, and months later, those same acounts reported are still holding down this entire city, and have it in a state of majority lockdown. This company is squeezing the life out of this Golden Goose for every penny they can, while not givng a care about those who actually paid it to them. And all the while for a game that in reality is a fraud, because they've allowed the Spoofers to run it and ruin it for honest players. A full refund should be made to all who have been defrauded by this company. Shame on them as they laugh all the way to the bank. Full Review
Bryce Helvy Published date: January 20, 2018
The reason I give 3 stars is because my game has run into a game breaking bug. My phone died in the middle of a raid and now when I log onto it the game spawns a fake gym on my area that interferes with other gyms and pokestops spawning for me. It also interferes with Pokemon spawns. Please help. Full Review
Published date: January 20, 2018
I'm thinking of deleteing Pokemon go for the simple reason that balls are to hard to collect in the area I live and play Pokemon go so I'm at a disadvantage from other players who have more gyms and stops out side and around there house so I have to buy balls if I want to play but I'm getting sick of paying for items that cost far to mutch for a game on a phone it's a rip off and also when I walk with my phone in my pocket all of my balls throw buy them self so I waste money for no reason Full Review

On the Pixel phone, app causes a full reboot randomly. Latest Oreo install. No warning, phone hangs for 10-20 seconds, and reboots. No problems with any other apps. Spoofing remains a huge problem too. Full Review

If you are going to release a western countries centric app, then please don't bother to release it in Asian countries. I live in a metro city and still I can't find a pokestop or gym for miles at my location. Absolutely hate this game. Can't even delete my account as the official never bothered to even respond to my emails. Full Review
