Bug fixes


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!

Premium Raid Passes
Nesa844 on 7/19/2018
My only issue is premium raid passes. We can delete almost everything BUT that and the special boxes keep pushing them.
Why does California get no events or other countries etc!
starfall04 on 7/19/2018
I’m tired of not getting very big events that aren’t I can take part in! How is it fair that most of the other countries or states have more events, and we just get PART of the event! Like the more rare Pokémon that will spawn in Japan or the other event that just happened for Germany. Plus what about other smaller states or countries?! Let there be more events for everyone and not just the one state or country city etc! Btw If I could give this game 0 stars I would. Also for the second anniversary why and pikachu like again with some clothing on there! That’s a good enough thing to give us the players clapping for u to give us another recycled idea good job! :p also please fix the thing that happens with go fest where people sell tickets when they can not. I also understand that sometimes u don’t have control over it all.
Lol actress on 7/19/2018
I’m sitting in a church parking lot with my best friend rn before a party and all we wanted to do was download this app to play bc we’re bored. Very super duper disappointed and triggered because every time I try and go on this app IT CRASHES. I tried to download it TWICE while USING MY DATA. So sad so so so sad. Could’ve been a precious memory.
Pokemon go is #1
Hurk Lard on 7/19/2018
Well this game is very much a waste of time but it did help me realize life is wasted with a cell phone and these distracting apps i would walk around but I definitely isolated myself from human to human interaction. I miss the pleasure from not being and addict to this game. so I'm gonna go jump in front of a bus and have my soul start over. i lost the concept of enjoy life without smart phones Life is wasted staring a screen of a map of the place your actually standing clicking on imaginary monster instead actually suffering through life and its dull reality. i cannot believe how dumb i am i literally wasted play this game for two years because I'm a f ing loser I caught myself staring into my phone more looking fake digital animals for momentary satisfaction. Am i actually living life?
Great Game, Bad Bugs
Yawanoc on 7/19/2018
I reinstall this game about once every other week. It has an issue on many devices where you can’t log in without reinstalling it. It’ll randomly choose a time to stop working - even if it was working 10 minutes prior. There have been many times where I’d get a group together to all do a local event, and we end up needing to wait for someone in the group to reinstall their game. This problem isn’t that big, but it’s frequent enough that I wouldn’t recommend this game to a casual player.
Annoyed w niantic

I can not buy anything from the store when I have enough money in my card. It says (Error 3) every time I try to and idk why.
Loved it and then I didn’t!
Beckers86 on 7/19/2018
This was a great game that I loved playing with the family until it started saying that I was using 3rd party apps and threatened to shutdown my account for doing nothing. Then when I submitted a request telling them I am doing no such thing, I go no response.
Good game

Music Godess on 7/19/2018
Love it ughhh
IanExtreme3 on 7/19/2018
One thing that I would change I the max Combat power they should make so you can catch higher Pokémon and make the max level higher and a master ball
GPS signal not found
Lizzy🦋 on 7/19/2018
Alright, I love this game okay its fun it’s something to do when your bored or when your in a town but recently my game wouldn’t follow my avatar and a red notification would pop up on the screen and say “GPS signal not found error (11)” Although sometimes it won’t pop up when I’m sitting still and on the app. I just hope you can fix this because when I’m in the car and we pull up to a poke-stop or gym it says that notification. Please don’t just skim over this review like what you normally do, I understand if you are working on fixing another glitch and are too busy working on that one to work on this one but please fix this.
My addiction
Kathy426xx on 7/19/2018
I love this game since it came out. It’s like my addiction. It’s always fun and always something to do. I started playing the game in New York. I had to go down to North Carolina Fayetteville and Now I live in Virginia Dumfries and I just wish they would update more things in each city. In NYC their are pokestops every where and cool Pokémon but for Dumfries you have to go miles and miles to find pokestops and cool Pokémon. It’s harder to get around in the south and for kids, they can’t just hop in a car to go to a pokestops. Also I wish we could just pick the item we want to give to a friend. That would be awesome.

woods house on 7/19/2018

NoivernGX on 7/19/2018
I love this game! I love Pokémon! I think you should add Pokémon generations faster though. I can’t wait for Noivern!!!!!!
batmon6 on 7/19/2018
This game is amazing. It got me back into exercising and is very fun. I am on team mystic and I beat a gym. Right after I beat the gym someone on team instinct put a Pokémon in it. This is my one problem with the game. Overall it has great quality and I highly recommend it.
App Crashes At Open Screen

iPhone X problem
kakekelsk on 7/19/2018

Great game but could be better
bacoop05 on 7/19/2018
So I am currently trying to complete a mythical discovery but I have to catch ditto again when I’ve already got two I think you guys should make it where if you have one you complete the challenge.Other than that I can’t think of any other problems fix that and I will rate it five stars.Thank you

Nazgray7852 on 7/19/2018
It will not let me use a inscese I can pull it out but not use it please help me with this problem.
Great title in the making!
Super Shelly Kay on 7/19/2018
I was hooked on this game when it was in its fad state but eventually It fell off my map. I eventually couldn’t play anymore, I couldn’t get anymore pokeballs and there was nothing of interest in my area. I am happy to say that coming back to the game was quite the welcome. I loved that they added new regional Pokémon, trading, and friends, and the gym modifications make the game feel nice and well rounded. It still feels like an incomplete game however as I’m sure there are many functions that can be added to the game. I’m hopeful for the future of Pokémon Go and I get the feeling it’s gonna make a comeback for many others.
Huge comeback
Yolo killer227474 on 7/19/2018
I’m very impressed with the comeback pokemon go had over the years, and I’m now hooked on it again.
jjjjjjhjjjjgggggfffdddsssa on 7/19/2018
Rotate regionals. Can’t even finish the gen 1 dex and it’s been a year

App crashes after load screen
You need service!!!!
Golden Creeper 2374 on 7/19/2018
Great but you need service so if you had a iPad for instance you can’t go very far from your house 🤷🏼‍♂️
Great game but not 💯%
Buckeye chris on 7/19/2018
It’s a great game I’ve been addicted for two years now. Made a lot of new friends and been all over my city exploring. I’ve managed 3,000 KM walked and 60,000 Pokémon caught. The game does crash a lot and tends to lag quite often. It’s been pretty bad the last 1-2 months but I deal with it. Now let me say this, the spoofing and multi-accounting is ruining the game for myself and our entire community. The spoofing had slowed down a few months ago when you banned them. Why you let these people have their account ls back is beyond me and the millions of legit players. So Now they have started back up. The multi-accounting usually doesn’t bother me but there’s one guy in particular that has four accounts that is causing everyone to quit. He walks and/or spoofs all over downtown and takes every gym. If someone post a raid and start time on Discord he immediately goes there’s and takes the gym. Then he drops in his 4 Pokémon and that’s it, there’s no way to get it back from him. He feeds golden berries from each account so he never reaches the limit and it’s impossible to take him out. I tried one day for 45 minuets! If someone ask about his 4 accounts then he causes at them and tells people to mind their own business. He’s toxic to the game, community, and even though he’s been reported with evidence he continues to play. If this was fixed I would give the game 5 stars.
Nbdemom on 7/19/2018
Would have given it 5 stars but for some odd reason when I’m at a poke stop it won’t let me let off a lure module?! Please tell me what the trick is! I use to play when the game first came out and I recently redown loaded it and I see a lot has changed!!
DirtNapsAllDay on 7/19/2018
I sure would love to play this game again. But every time it loads, it crashes. I’ve reinstalled it several times and still crashes. What gives?
Great game
dakask24 on 7/19/2018
Wish they would add tangrowth
Love the game but won’t play any more
Koffeekitteh on 7/19/2018
I absolutely loved Pokémon go and played with my friends all the time. But for some reason my account was deleted and when I contacted Niantic support they did not help at all. It was really disappointing to lose all the things I had worked for as well as the things I purchased(!), so I don’t think I’ll be playing any more.
Where did the game go? on 7/19/2018
I like Pokémon, I’ve been a fan for years. I’d love to play this particular game. But I can’t! It won’t load! I had to uninstall and reinstall it to even start it the first time. Now it’s hit or miss. It either loads or I have to uninstall and then reinstall! A total pain!
Pokémon is stuck
will7363637 on 7/19/2018
I love this game but it has an issue. If you assign a Pokémon to a gym there is no way to get it back if it’s “stuck.” I put a Pokémon in a gym and it has been in the gym for 22+ days. If there was a way to retrieve Pokémon from gyms I would give 5 stars.

Bruh I can't log in

I can't log in or create a new guy. It's like this game doesn't want people to play it.

I’ve tried to re-download this app a few times now on my iPhone X & it will not open. Immediately crashes.

The recently added gift box should be trashable
Junkqq on 7/19/2018
Such annoying I cannot put them i the trash can
It was a good game, but it piss me off now.
ococ000 on 7/18/2018
The idea of the game is great. But it’s getting worse. There are some serious bugs and sometimes unreasonable. Like every time when i get to catch a Pokémon as award, the app dies. I have to reboot the game for several times. Also, it’s ridiculous to spend ten balls to catch one Pokémon since it jumps out every time, even with berries feed. What’s the fun if you have to catch a normal Pokémon five times to get it? It was a good game, but it piss me off now.
Generation 4
Swimminggirl23 on 7/18/2018
I love this game and the Pokémon and I really want generation 4 to come how! Please! A lot of my favorite Pokémon are from generation 4! It would be even more motivating to me to find all of my favorites!
