Celebrate 2018 Lunar New Year with Google Play

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!

    The game has been majorly revamped and has benefited from it. It's so much better to see that content and events are happening more often. Hopefully we'll see the first wave of gen 4 by April or May and a nice egg event will happen to get a higher chance of a baby Pokemon from gen 4. Keep up the great work only downside is legendaries. I can't get them as not enough people in my area play Pokemon go and I'm not travelling for a Pokemon. Can we have a legendary event for one week you can get 3* legendary raids? That would make it easier. Full Review

    Constantly saying GPS not found (11). She jumps to random places and takes forever to even move. Its basically useless.. I was going to get a new phone to play this thinking it would work better but even after the update it hasn't changed. Waste all my data trying to play. Not happy. Disappointed. Full Review

    Will Shelton Published date: February 19, 2018

    I'm an android user and also on a budget so I can't get the latest and greatest ever really. And every phone I've ever had cannot run this stupid game. The developers really need to work with the lower quality phones to get it to be able to detect the GPS in them because it will load the character model, and the UI. Nothing else though. As soon as it starts loading it just says GPS signal not found and it can't ever find it total garbage Full Review

    Pokemon keep disappearing from my backpack. They are in there after I catch them but disappear later. They appear in pokedex as one's caught. Never had this problem before. Wasting money for balls when it doesn't count. Will never purchase balls again. Rating would go up if bugs were fixed regularly. Full Review

    I play this game every day and I gotta admit this game has gotten harder since the update making it hard to catch Pokemon you guys control that I understand you want to make money but come on you're gonna lose your fan base buy making it hard to catch Pokemon and making us choose between buying poke balls or driving to go find some either way your costing us money. I wish y'all could fix the issue with Pokemon evolving. Full Review

    I love pokemon go and always get pulled back into playing it. I'm still getting use to the updates after not playing for a while and am disapointed in the gyms. While I love being able to use them like pokestops, I wish to recall my pokeon from the gym. I love I a rural area and my poor Vaporeon has been at a gym for 13 days. THIRTEEN. I want my pokemon to come back please. Full Review

    Requires constantly lookong at the screen(unsafe while walking on street). Doesn't count steps traveled unless application is actively in use. No rural support. Not enough pokestops or gyms in my area parks or other public areas that are safe to access. No player vs player combat. No trading. Doesn't really seem like a Pokemon game, more of a gimmick.

    The game is ok at best. The company that runs it on the other hand is completely incompetent. Terrible planning for their events and some how they manage to screw the event up even more. Play the game if you really like Pokemon but don't expect much from the company. The game cant seem to figure out the weather. The game says its raining in the middle of a snowstorm. The raid system is a complete waste of time. Try and get enough people together just for a shot of getting a legendary pokemon. Just to run out of pokaballs. Waste of time all around. Full Review

    I really like the game. I stopped playing for quite a while because of the connection problems. I made the mistake of choosing a Pokemon trainer club account instead of a google account, so it does have some problems staying logged in or even if you switch between accounts you have to close the app so it allows you to log back into the trainer account. I just wish they would have it so you could connect a trainer account with a google mail, so this would not be an issue. It's a little overdue since a lot of people do want to switch Full Review

    Rosemarie Khan Published date: February 19, 2018

    I used to love this game. I hate the way you can only raid a gym in a group to win the best Pokemon. I do a job where my hrs are different from other ppls. So I am not available to do raids with others. Also I think it would be brilliant if you had a swapping system with other players so it could at least open up the opportunity to gain some of the rarer Pokemon, if you aren't able to get to raids or travel. I live in a rural area and don't drive so it is difficult to get to other areas..... Full Review

    Its getting better. Haven't done raids yet, but hopefully the EX Pass business is fixed soon. Would like to see more Pokestops in rural areas. Arlington has plenty scattered around but anywhere outside in a suburb is a ghost town. Also with more legendary Pokémon, maybe add some extra teams or the ability to switch. (Kinda getting tired of Mythic) Full Review

    I would give 5 stars but my account got lost and I can't figure out how to get it back. Also, when trying to contact Niantic you aren't able to leave an email. Their troubleshooting doesn't work. This game needs a Sign on screen that actually works so you can pull your account up instead of it starting you all over. I spent a lot of money on my previous account because I like the game. I will not spend a dime on this account to have it lost again Full Review

    Updated content since the app was launched. Still recommended. Suggestion: After the daylight savings time change, raiding ends too early in the evenings. Setting raids to continue spawning eggs until after 8pm EST at the earliest would be great. Thanks and keep up the hard work. Full Review

    The tutorial doesn't seem to work. I kept tapping everywhere on the screen and nothing happened. I could only rotate. Also even though my GPS is on, the app still tells me it can't find it (yes I also gave the app permission to access my GPS). I am kind of disappointed with this app :/ Full Review

    Niantic refuse to ban hackers. I can't battle gyms, they get taken over by other players using other means. Gameplay experience has gotten worse because of this. Sick and tired of gyms instantly taken down, even when you help defend. Full Review

    Seana Dykes Published date: February 17, 2018

    Recently it's gone terrible with how many poke balls you need to catch any pokemon. I just used 100+ on ten pokemon six of which ran away! Totally not fair. It's not easy to get many poke balls anymore, really feel like giving this game up. Full Review

    Tvrtko Christopher Samardžija Published date: February 15, 2018

    So far so good, every bugfix update brings new problems instead of bugfixes, but every new update tackles some of these problems. I really hope you'll weed out all the problems by 2020. And the idea to drop a whole generation gradually? Very daring, I must say, and not particularly smart. But in case everyone forgets they are playing a Pokemon game, maybe it won't be that bad.

    Eleazar Joey Published date: February 23, 2018

    Please get rid of spoofers (even if they're paying customers) as you can hardly catch any Chanseys in Malaysia but you can find Blisseys defending gyms which can only mean that those trainers got them while traveling *leisurely* abroad. The EX raid invitation system is a farce so please get rid of it 😡 Full Review

    Francesco Gazza Published date: February 19, 2018

    The game is good for the most part and there's lots of fun easter eggs but with gps spoofers and the fact that you're forced to join in with people to battle high level raids really fails the game play. All I want is a sliding scale of difficulty with raids so that players who want to get a legendary battle going without having to be forced to deal with people can still contend to catch a legendary. I've all but given up raids all together because of this issue. I want to play MY game not play with everyone else, is that so much to ask? Full Review

    Santiago Garabaya Published date: February 16, 2018

    Game idea is good, implementation is not good at all. This game will drain your battery, overheat your device and consume all your mobile data; GPS accuracy is terrible, and the animations slow and cumbersome. TL;DR: it sucks Full Review

    It's a very awesome game I play it just about every day, evening, or night. Except for one problem, the battery on my phone was at 86% before playing for 10 min., then when I went to check it after that 10 min. it was at 15%... (I know that it was from the location), but fix that drainage battery problem ASAP! Thanks. Full Review

    Mohd Azizi Abd Rashid Published date: February 15, 2018

    Recent gym update is most welcome but still no solution to spoofers and please fix defender bonus ratio. It's impossible to defend a gym in high traffic areas and lets not forget spoofers kicking defenders out of gyms. Getting just 1 coin after defending the gym for 1 hour is just ridiculous Full Review

    synchro593 Published date: February 21, 2018

    I just spent the last hour typing out a review that the system seems to have deleted, so I'll just shorten it to the facts that: There is senseless region locking of good pokemon. You can't leave team members notes in gyms, so it's difficult to figure out who guards the same locations with you. The game will CONSTANTLY buffer when you throw pokeballs and waste your items. The game will not recognize where you are sometimes, preventing you from hitting pokestops or raiding. It will think you're spoofing when driving from work to home on a regular basis. You will drop out of raids and not be able to collect rewards. The group aspect and pokemon are fun though. Full Review

    MadDuck RC Published date: February 20, 2018

    Sorry guys, I haven't been into Pokemon in years. I went ahead and got this game since I do travel quite a bit, but I can't even battle my wife or friends? Really....this is the very best (get it) you guys can do. And spending money just to get to the top and still (once again) not be able to battle friends or near by trainers. This is more like the every first test version and the real game will come out on 6 years. I'll keep the game for now, but please update everything and let us battle each other Full Review

    Lags when trying to catch a raid boss which leads many people to missing out on good mon.. You need to put a practice range in the game where people can go and throw at differwnt distances and heights .. The rayquaza is bullcrap.. So high that many can't even throw high enough to touch him most the time time Full Review

    This game have so much potential to be honest, but I had to give you 3 star just because of the gps signal problem, everytime I walked into a building, or some places. My character didnt move and even the gps signal problem is gone. And also a glitch I at the gym, the pokemon are in one place and its kinda weird. Full Review

    Good game. The update didn't do anything though. It also glitches whenever I go to my Pokemon partner. This game is good for a free game. It does not have any ads like other free games. And also, please change the load screen! It's been the 2018 load screen for months! You should have made a Valentine's Day load screen for Valentine's Day. Just please change the 2018 load screen.

    Jason Kidd Published date: February 18, 2018

    Getting a bit bored with it, very annoying when you waste a raid pass because the game bombs out or there wasn't enough people or whatever, you can't get a refund on it so that's it for a day. It can be a bit temperamental anyway. Various buggy issues, it can slow the device right down, it will bomb out and so on, had Pokemon fall through the floor. Ex-raid pass situation is pretty dodgy too. That's twice I've been screwed on them now, this time I get one for a gym 12000! miles away I visited 6 months ago when I was in a different country. I almost gave up after the last one, think this is the final straw. Feels like a bit of a waste of time now. Full Review

    I like the game, I was a bit worried to get it when it came out at first, but after installing it and learning how it generally works I like it a lot. I would love to see more pokemon added and maybe even some PvP/ being able to challenge other people around you some day. So far it's been great, I'm not really sure why so many people have been so upset about it, but it's definitely a 5/5 for me so far. Full Review
