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 over 750 million times and named “Best Mobile Game” by The Game Developers Choice Awards and “Best App of the Year” by TechCrunch, introduced a dynamic weather system that recognizes real-world weather, impacting the gameplay experience in a variety of ways, from changing the Pokémon encountered to increasing their effectiveness in combat. 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!

  • Very good

    By Kikimcgee
    This game is great and the up tases are phenomenal the only thing that could make it better is if you could sync it with a fitness tracker that counted your steps so the eggs would be able to hatch even if your phone isnt on or opened onto Pokémon go because that eats my battery and data.
  • Fix: No coins awarded after pokemon returns from gyms

    By Morphs gamer
    Please fix the bug/glitch wherein no poké coins are awarded to user after the pokémon returns to owner (after defeating/owning a gym) for a number of hours/days.
  • Love this game so much, but some flaws cause it to be so frustrating

    By Jaclynlou
    There have been a few times where I’ve been in a very large raid group (10-20 people) and a few of us will get kicked out in the middle of the battle and we won’t be allowed back in (even when there’s time left on the clock) to catch the Pokemon. There have been times where after this glitch happens, I will still have my raid pass, but all of my Pokemon will be injured or knocked out. There are also times where I have lost my raid pass in this glitch and it causes me to have to buy another one on the spot. It’s very frustrating and embarrassing to commute far out to meet up with a raid group, only to have the game glitch out on me. I’ve been playing this game since the day it came out and glitches like this cause me to get very discouraged and flustered. That being said, I love this game so much; it truly makes my long walk into work better and more fun, AND it encourages me to go out for walks during my lunch break. I would say that it has been a very positive influence on my life and some of my friends lives. It makes my day more exciting, and it helps me feel a level of nostalgia considering I played all of the Pokemon games growing up. I hope this game is up and running forever, I just wish that some of the gym issues would get cleaned up a bit :)
  • Pokemon in the Real World

    By TerrapinDan
    I remember playing the first games on the original Gameboy for hours. PoGo has captured the nostalgia and translated it into a game that gets players moving and exploring the world around them. While I certainly would love to see some new elements added to the experience (quests, regional rotations, trading, etc.) the core of this game has evolved in a way to make it sustainable for some time. Battling over gyms can be challenging. Tracking down rare Pokemon is almost always rewarding. And I have discovered new places I would have never wandered I to if not for the game. To expand on the couple suggestions above, in case Niantic ever reviews these comments... Quests could be a great way to allow players unable to travel a way to get rare regional Pokemon. It also can give level 40 players new achievements to shoot for when they have reached the max level. Regional Pokemon is a nice concept but is unfair for players with limited funds or travel ability. I know the game is made to get people out to explore but players should not be punished for being unable to jump on a plane and go abroad. Trading could also help with some of the exclusivity of Pokemon related to travel or related to accessibility (with consideration for those in lower population areas). Direct battling is something that every player wants but has not been modeled yet in-game or in previews. I’ve got other suggestions but only as a fan who appreciates the game that has been created.
  • Rural issues...

    By Farmed to Oblivion
    You need to implement a weekly time limit for gym occupation in the rural areas. we have one gym that one team had basically owns because they live so close. Every time any opposing team takes down the gym, it would be taken back within an hour by the geographically advantaged team. After the update we saw that there was another gym added up for grabs. This seemed promising... until we realized that the advantaged team now has two gyms at their disposal. There is no other way to earn coins other than by purchases, but it would be nice to have more options.
  • Ex

    By JoshieMinaj
    Ex Raids are ruining the game. It's unfair that so few people are getting multiple chances to catch Mewtwo. The system is broken. So many people are quitting because of this failed feature.
  • Gotta catch em all

    By paysonallen
    Ex raids r a horrible idea I’ll change my rating when u remove ex raids I love this game but it is horrible w/ex raids Did I mention ex raids are horrible 🙄
  • Can't update for iPhone 6s with iOS 11.2.2

    By Chronogos
    The game won't update past version 0.87.5 despite App Store saying it's up to date.
  • Add a scanner

    By Taylor1125
    You should add scanner so what ever pockemon you have in the cards you can scan it to get that pockemon.
  • Great updates!

    By music is nice
    Always have enjoyed playing the game! Updates and enhancements are improving the game more and more. Gyms could be sped up a bit with the transitions, and I do miss "training" up gyms past level 6. Overall keep up the great work developers, excellent game!
