Pokémon GO has now introduced social and trading features that allow Trainers to connect with each other by adding friends, sending Gifts, and participating in a new Friendship level system that unlocks bonuses. Trainers can now trade Pokémon with other Trainers nearby, earning a Candy Bonus for the Pokémon received. Join Trainers across the globe who are discovering Pokémon as they explore the world around them. Pokémon GO is the global gaming sensation that has been downloaded over 800 million times and named "Best Mobile Game" by The Game Developers Choice Awards and "Best App of the Year" by TechCrunch. Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Pikachu, and many other Pokémon have been discovered! 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 and Gyms—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. Compete in epic Gym battles You’ll join one of three teams and battle for the ownership of Gyms with your Pokémon at your side. 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. Team up to defeat powerful Raid Bosses A Raid Battle is a cooperative gameplay experience that encourages you to work with up to 20 other Trainers to defeat an extremely powerful Pokémon known as the Raid Boss. If you succeed in defeating it in battle, you’ll have the chance to catch an extra powerful Pokémon of your own! It’s time to get moving—your real-life adventures await!

  • Trading is trash

    By LumikkiCresent
    Why make it cost 800,000 STARDUST to just trade when you’re 2 hearts friendship level... for a small town with about 1000 population, NOTHING should cost more than around a couple hundred thousand and that’s IF it’s like a Legendary... this game is supposed to make it where u can catch Pokémon and fill up your Pokédex but how can anyone do that when 1. You can’t get really any stardust or 2. ITS TOO FUDGING HIGH COST!!!! It would be MUCH BETTER if either you get MORE STARDUST or LESS COST because for smaller towns, there’s not a way we can get much within a reasonable amount of time... it took me about 2 hours to JUST get 20,000 Stardust... that’s from friends gifts and the little 100-125 stardust from actually catching a few Pokémon here and there... Again please make it lower cost or make it an easier way to get stardust, the reading system NEEDS TO BE FIXED BECAUSE IT IS BROKEN
  • Not enough Pokémon diversity

    By Adrianez
    This game is great, but it seems like they only way to fill the Pokédex is to wait for special events. In order to get cool Pokémon that are kinda rare like leidyba or duskull we have to go to other cities which sounds great. Not everyone can go city to city just to catch a new Pokémon entry. I have had the experience in which I have seen a Chansey in the wild ever since then I have not. Pokémon go is great, and it would be better if there was more spawns or pawn times changed more often. I don’t think this game it más to frustrate people, but sometimes it feels like it is. Personally; I would like for Niantic to listen more to the people’s comments so they can improve the game.
  • Different types of pokeballs

  • Just frustrated

    By Stormyblueseas
    I really loved this game...playing everyday... working hard at quests... the timing is impeccable. I have grown frustrated by quests...and sitting at raids without any other players (even encouraging people on social forums to join). Too much time invested with little to no progress. I am getting really close to giving up on the game. For example: Two days after evolving a magikarp my quest requires me to evolve a magikarp. Another example: I walked my evee 10km and then waited until night and evolved it as the quest required me to evolve an umbreon. I met my 10k in the morning and I was still working on my magikarp so I switched my buddies. Went to evolve my evee at night ... got a Flareon. Apparently, per forums it has to stay your buddy (that would have been nice to know ... now I’m back to walking another 10k with the game... but that wasn’t included in the quest directions. there are not enough people raiding in my neighborhood to even have a chance at anything big (I.e. mew) and my friends don’t play... There are great opportunities for people to go get special pokemon (like unknown event in so. Cal) but traveling is not feesible If you have no transportation and work two jobs. I have, on many occasions I would walk to sightings of Pokémon (on radar), yet they would vanish by the time or before I reached them.
  • Great game but please make it a little better

    By Omega10000
    Hey Niantic I love Pokémon Go it is a really great game but there is some stuff I would like to tell you first first of all I feel like you should put Pokè stops everywhere that is famous or had a name on it second keep the Pokémon spawned until it is out of your screen it bothers me cause today a megnium showed up and it despawned on me third make special trades a little cheaper because losing a 25,000 stardust hurts me last make raids better it is annoying because the raids are not even fun anymore make them how they used to be.
  • Good so far

    By Dartrix509
    I’ve been playing Pokémon GO for a few weeks now, and I’ve made good progress so far (I caught a shiny Snubbul). The only major complaint I have is the Poké Stops. They’re too far apart, and if you’re at a Poké Stop, you open it, and you walk away before spinning, it won’t allow you to. I ride the bus to and from school, and I miss out on a TON of Poké Stops because by the time I’ve opened a Poké Stop, the bus has already driven past it. One thing in particular that I suggest is this: there should be an update where if you type in your home address, a Poké Stop is created at your house. It’s very convenient for me (mainly because I miss a lot of Poké Stops as I mentioned). Another reason you should add this is because I’m only at level fourteen, and I’ve already run out of Poké Balls thirty times. So that’s my current review for Pokémon GO. Will update this if the issues above are resolved. Thank you for reading. -ABrokenLegacy
  • Love it but...

    By Crissywissy6923
    I love this game but I’m not getting all of my pokecoins when I’ve defended gyms.
  • Needs improvement

    By RayBubba7
    My games reset twice when I loaded up the app. It freezes often when I’m playing if these guy want to become better they need to improve this less bugs!
  • New events constantly & great way to make new friends

    By Sparkley8
    When the game first came out, there wasn’t much to do and no one could do raids above level 2 or 3 because you needed several people and you didn’t know who played Pokémon Go. There also wasn’t much going on and people got bored after the first couple of months. Now, there’s community days every month, events almost every week, 3 hour legendary raid days most months, field and special research, and 3, almost 4, generations of Pokémon. Also, there’s ways to communicate and coordinate trades and raids with other players using different apps like Discord, Reddit, and Facebook. There are new events going on constantly and new shinies being released. Some events are great and others aren’t, but at least there’s constant change so players don’t get bored. I really enjoy this game because I’ve made several friends who play it and it makes walks with my dog much longer and more enjoyable. If you do it right, it can be a great way to make friends and get yourself outside and away from the tv and laptop. Just please be safe about it. Don’t play while you cross streets, don’t go to parks when they are closed, don’t trespass anywhere, and don’t take it too seriously. Be nice and fair to other players. Deliberately kicking someone out of a gym at 11:55 pm is very rude. And lying about what Pokémon you have to trade with will make people not want to ever trade with you again. Think about it like a sport: competitiveness is great, but show good sportsmanship and respect others who are playing the game. Suggestion for the game: I’d suggest more ways to receive stardust like maybe when you win a battle, you get stardust for defeating that Pokémon. Another method would be fine as well. Since stardust is required for trades and powering up Pokémon, it is difficult to get stardust even though you can get it from catching Pokémon, feeding berries in gyms, using star pieces, and doing research tasks. People who don’t trade or power up Pokémon have a ridiculous amount of stardust, but those that do both never seem to have enough. Stardust was fine when we were only using it to power up Pokémon, but since trading was added, we need a way to compensate for that addition to the game.
