I've been playing the game since the beginning and it's mostly fine. I just wish we could open as many gifts as we want. I have 200 friends and trying to improve our friendship is so hard when, atm, I can open only 30 a day. It used to be only 20 before COVID. And now I can't get the tasks for the limited special research.. Glitchy and now I'm behind if I ever get it
There should be bug fixes. It can't access my location most of the time. It doesn't have km counting in a proper sequence, it counts only on using app even after giving permission to allow location all the time. I can't access go snapshot, my friends experience this too, the screen goes black. Please support my review if you too face these problems to grab the attention of Niantic.
Im having an issue with the last event that gave us meowths. I was playing till the very last second of 10 pm, and when I went to collect rewards it wouldnt let me. Now its glitching and showing multiple buttons to get the same reward but when i click it nothing happens. It doesnt do anything and the glitch remains on the screen. I love this game and if you could fix the glitch that would be great.
It used to be a flawless app, but after new things were coming out constantly, the app is constantly bugging out, crashing, and internal errors and system errors constantly. I love the game and will continue to play but the quality of the app and it's stability has gone down the toilet in recent weeks. As of recently, the app also barely functions if it is raining out. Maybe that's acceptable if you live where it doesn't rain, but outside of LA, that's not acceptable. Playing Go since 2017...
Look at Edit in the end: It's a good game. I travel a lot and walk a good enough distance to work. The only thing that is so horrible is the online battles. It's impossible to have a good connection. I also think they should nerf the team rocket power. Mean now it's impossible to beat them unless you're a die heart old timer playing the game.... Edit: I tried coming back after a month break and now the game is unplayable. It lags so much. Does anyone else have this problem?
The game is fun. But after the update, there has been issues in the Battle League. Where the player will experience internet problems during the battle. But to other games, they dont have any problems on the internet. I myself has experience this type of issue, but to other players, they seem to not encounter this kind of problem. Please fix this ASAP.
I would get at five stars except lately, every time I go to battle somebody, it says I have a slow connection and doesn't let me fight. I just have to watch my top pokemon die. It is frustrating and not fair considering how much money I've spent on coins to continue playing. I downloaded the update so hopefully that will help. I'll let you know... Other than that, very fun game thats kept me busy for hours and made taking the bus not so bad. Also, what can I do if I have no friends that play?
Great game and all, but it would be really nice if they made it so that raids don't depend on who's around (which for me is usually nobody), but depends on who is doing the raids globally. Meaning that if someone in Japan is doing a raid that is exactly the same as one in America, they both will have the same lobby. This would make it easy for those without many nearby players to do mega and 5-star raids.
I like this game a lot, and I've gotten pretty invested in it. However, the amount that it's crashing right now makes the game basically unplayable. Hey, developers! How about step away from the new features until the game is more stable? A dozen or more crashes a day, every day, is just unacceptable.
This would normally be a five star but since the updates I can no longer play. The game crashes and freezes alot and now won't even let me sign in. I've restarted my phone, uninstalled the game to reinstall but now I can't even get the game on my phone anymore! :'( Hopefully this will be fixed soon as I love playing this with my kids and their dad.
I've played PokeGo since 2016 on the same account. Never had issue into this past month. Me and some local friends I play with have been kicked from 5* raids after our first lineup faints. Click to bring fresh units into raid and we get kicked back to the overworld map. Soooo disappointing and aggravating. Especially when remote raid passes cost coins which cost real currency. Please fix this bug Niantic. I will gladly give 5* when updated or resolved. Love this game so much don't fail me now.
Great game. Everything about this game "except for a few errors" is great. The only thing I would want to change is to add friends into your world. So as you play u can see your friends next to you on screen. And you see and help with what they are doing. Such as raiding, gym battling, etc.
5 stars, to 4, to 2, to 1. Now 0. Stats randomize when you trade, and the insane stardust cost for a shine or purified is broken. Also don't buy the pokeball plus accessories. They disconnect constantly, as well as needing to re-pair it 6 times a day from app and phone. Having the "GO" not go away during a raid. Forcing a restart and screwing my friends over. I loved this game. I can't support the level of frustration the devs are ok with causing. As long as you keep paying. Fix your damn game.
I can be on 4g 5g or WiFi and yet most go battle league matches have "weak connections". I've been robbed of countless games where my guy just stands there while they keep attacking(which really burns when I'm winning). My phone works great and this is the only game that gives me problems. I liked the idea of the go battle league but it needs a lot more stability if I'm ever going to give it a chance again.
Should be 4.5/5 stars, but there's no option , so I'm giving it 4/5. Great game, but has many flaws. They like to add new features without fixing problems with current features or adding much needed QoL changes. Lots of potential for many years to come though. EDIT: After their recent attempt to milk megas as much as possible, im bringing the rating down to 2 stars. I will change it back to 4 if they can make some kind of change, but this is just a cash grab.
Legendary game; these must be some of the hardest working developers in the world! They are SO on it. Sometimes I worry they're chained to their desks, being flogged for errors, but I hope (and assume) that isn't the case. This game is a piece of art, and like all great works, it has changed the world. How many years do you think all these poké walks have added to our lives? Friends made? Fun had? Hands down, best game ever. Update: 2 stars deducted for bad customer service & frequent glitches
As a player who is a few hundred k points away from level 40, playing for 3+ years, I had to take my stars down from 5 to 4. I enjoy the updates and new ways to play the game, but they never roll out smooth at all. Currently having an issue redeeming a special research prize, the game is frozen, and I don't see an easy way to report it. Sucks. Otherwise, yeah I'm obsessed.
The game used to be great but then Megas came out and turned it into a "pay to win" game. This will only get worse because of they're obvious corporate greed. This game is jam packed with bugs that seems to never be fixed or even looked into. The support team is totally useless. I won't be playing much longer at this rate. Wish I could "Rate" the game 0/5.
Very fun game, but has a few bugs that make the game a little annoying or weird. Like sometimes you can log on to pokemon go with your buddy's head stick in the ground. Or sometimes in the battle league instead of saying "You Win!" or "Good effort!", it stays on a frozen frame of your character. Also, the game says it has an update, but there aren't any present.
I think its a great game to get people moving. But its a total ripoff ant time you have built up inventory on balls it will make every pokemon get out several times no matter what. I have had this happen to me several times to the point that i almost dont wanna play anymore. It sucks to not be able to stock up without game making sure you waist them.
This used to be a really fun game but with every "update" the game gets worse. I can no longer do remote raid battles because every time I do my character freezes and doesnt work which leads me to wasting a remote raid pass and having to leave the battle. It's really frustrating losing out on so many remote raid passes for nothing. Since all the updates started the game constantly freezes, glitches, and lags. Not happy with this game anymore. Also everytime I update it takes all of my storage
It's been useful during this whole quarantine thing I finally have something to do. Helps get me exercise by going on walks. The graphics are amazing and, it's completely kid-friendly. However, I think that there should be a fix on how bad the lag can be sometimes. But that's about all I got to say for this app momentarily. I look forward to Future progression! This is one of the best apps I've ever really played. I think more apps should be like this rating 10/10. Good job, keep up the work.
I love Pokemon, and I used to love this game, but it's so insanely glitchy that it's taking all the fun out of it completely. For example: pokeballs lag when I try to curve them, eggs don't register my walking, or worse, my distance is completely erased from an egg, lagging and freezing in every single pvp battle, lagging when I try to spin disks, and so many more. It would be great if your constant updates actually fixed some of these issues, but they never seem to be resolved.
Really love the app, but some of the updates just broke the game entirely. Got logged out somehow yesterday and since then can't log in on my own phone with my own account because "authentication failed." Tried all the hacks online - nothing fixed it. However I can open and run it no problem if I log in with my Google account on anothephone. What the hell???? How can authentication fail if it's my own account and phone? Doesn't make any sense because I used it a day before - it worked.
This game is terrible. I invested a lot of time into catching pokemon in order to use the pvp aspect. The connection is terrible to other people which makes me sit there while everyone else just gets to beat up my characters without a fight. It does not matter whether I am on my personal internet or roaming. Do not waste your time on this game, definitely don't waste your money on their millions of micro transactions.
Truly appalling how this game is constantly being updated, yet almost all Android users complain about the same thing... The game is not fun anymore, it's highly frustrating experiencing "weak connection" during every battle, whereas iOs users don't go through such. It's almost as if we're not being prioritised & that's saddening because we're all financially/emotionally invested in the game but our cries fall on deaf ears.
the pvp experience is the worst of any game I've played so far. not because of its mechanics (which I like) but the servers are lagging and it's impossible to play it. Never to mention to have a decent experience Nrver to mention to actually have an enjoyable one. Fix the damn servers (it's not my connection, so fix it on your end!!!).
Fair...I left a few of my Pokemon out at gyms, and I received the notification they (3 or 4 actually) returned with the max of 50 coins, but the coins never populated in my store account. I've tried logging back in, waiting a day or two, and refreshing game data, but still nothing. I tried going through the customer service and got caught in a loop with their autobot which was not very helpful at all. Really hope its just a glitch and not a shift to the pay to play template.
I love this game but it keeps taking money from me since the new update. It has charged me multiple times for the same purchase and has not given me my items I purchased. Also there's is literally no real customer support. Which is especially frustrating when things like this happens. Niantic makes plenty of money they should have a better customer support basis.
This is a super fun game. Especially if your into pokemon alot of fun challenges and things to do and encourages users to get out and walk around. Its fun to play and battle online with friends. And the cost of upgrades is very reasonable and you don't need to purchase it to play the game, but it does make it a little more enjoyable knowing that you have more storage space and dont have to get rid of things.
I'm getting seriously pissed off with how many GoBattles I lose , without a fight due to freezing and lagging. Its ridiculous. I dont know why I keep trying. Its not getting fixed. Considering uninstalling indefinitely. Come on niantic! Fix it please. Ive uninstalled because of how glitchy it was and reinstalled only to find out its even worse now. I can't do anything progressive on this game. Very annoyed with it at this point.
So honestly, fun game. Nice way to waste some free time, but recently, ranked battles are not working appropriately, and it is maddening. I have lost 3 sets of 5 matches for no reason other than the game having communication errors. While I'm sure that my opponents enjoyed having a free win, I, myself, did not. I've seen comments claiming to have the same problem, so I know this isn't just an issue with me. Please fix this soon, so I can actually play this game again.
I, like a few others I've read, have been having some issues with the Go Battle League. Checking the known issues I've seen that they fixed the latency issues, however, I am still receiving the same problem. I am unable to battle due to "weak network connection" when I have perfect connections. My ranking is suffering due to this and am wondering when a more certain and secure patch will be available.
Update: this game is so frustrating. Everytime I try to catch a new pokemon that I don't have, all of a sudden theres a network error. I have 40 pokemon that I haven't been able to carch because of network error. Come on people fix this. Be fore it was log in issues now this. OLD REVIEW: I haven't been able to log on in a really long time. the system needs to be fixed
Since the last update when I battle in GBL, it always says that my connection is weak and makes me lose on the battle again and again. Beside that everything is ok. I really love this game. I think the developer doing a great job to improve the game since 2016, especially during Covid. There are lots of improvement to help user to play this game from home, but yet it still need more to stabilize the game performance
3 stars because a few years ago, when I first played it... it was amazing. It worked perfectly, and it was fine the way it was. Now that I've reinstalled it for my own phone, the intro doesn't work, and I can't catch my first pokémon. Please fix this. As someone who's loved Pokémon GO since the beginning, I can't bear to see it broken. Thank you.
The game play itself is as enjoyable as it ever was. Unfortunately, you'll soon notice that now you're having to make various cash purchases in the app for that same experience. Many of the changes are essentially unnoticeable (i.e. the number of ball frequently needed to now "catch" your Pokemon). Niantic did add some new features (mega-evolve, etc), unfortunately any excitement surrounding these additions have been replaced by disappointment at what it actually costs to enjoy the full benefits
I'm perfectly fine with everything, except for one thing. The entire online battle thing gives me a bunch of hooey. I have a NEAR-PERFECT 5G connection, and what happens? It tells me that I have a weak connection! I can't even battle my mom without getting upset! I can be tapping the charged attack for 5 seconds straight, but it doesn't work! You really need to work on this, Niantic!
This game is fine. Had it from the start. Although you really shouldn't be charging for rewards that you unlock. That's seriously unfair and provides little to no incentive to level up. Since the recent update, I've constantly been bombarded with "weak connection" even when my signal is great. It makes doing the league literally impossible. Adventure sync barely works and there is no reason the Go Rocket members need to be so ridiculously overpowered.
Pretty game, mainly featuring using your GPS as part of the gameplay. On the downside, it has far too many bugs, problems, etc. Various errors, multiple freezes a day requiring game restart, annoying bugs, that's all about the game. As a popular example: as part of COVID they made free PvP, well, turned out these are often unplayable (just search for "pokemon go weak connection" to understand why; and no, it's unrelated to connection). It is also terribly unoptimized: despite having a simplistic graphics game has far too many moments when it "loads" something. At first I was blaming unoptimized network usage — but no, for my gf with the same network but a newer phone these things load up much faster. That's when I figured, all these moments it indeed calculates something on my phone. To give you an example: friends list, there's nothing to process, really, it's just a menu with a few images, it gotta be instant! Well, turns out it depends on the phone. For an indirect evidence of being badly optimized: it is the most energy-hungry app I've seen so far. There's also a feature of trying to catch pokemon with your camera enabled, but without going into details, you'll most likely disable it quickly. For my gf on her brand new Xiaomi it was wrongly calculating environment, for me in turn pokemon seems not aware of it at all. The world map isn't the most correct one either. So, is it good? Well, for me it was fun to play first 30 hours I think, in part due to quests I have to complete. And I still using it for a friend who I have little other chance to make go out. Other than that, it quickly becomes boring, and the tons of bugs tend to make the game too annoying.
Its a fun game and they've added a lot of features, but most are "pay to play" now. It costs way too much money to get the good stuff you have to have to play the game competitively, so its really not much fun unless you've got a lot of money to throw at it... especially in the days of quarantining and Covid 19! They even ask you to pay extra for Community Day tasks!
I'm a returning player from 2016. I love this game and all the features and events they've added but I am unsatisfied with how the game freezes after beating Go Rocket Leaders. They're challenging enough to defeat and majority of the time (like 85%), my game freezes and I have to reboot. After getting the game up, the Go Rocket leader is gone and so is my shadow pokemon capture... it's really disheartening and I have tried reporting/complaining to tech support with no response. Please fix.
Love! This is a great game for all ages. An opportunity for parents and children to connect - I started playing shortly after my son so I could share a common interest . I was driving him all over to play so I figured I should join in the fun too! Now I'm more addicted than my son! They've made it "covid-friendly" by giving players opportunities to play at home which is an added bonus! I also have found this community of players to be some really good people- kind hearts!
They just leave the lag issues in the entire game unanswered, not only GBL, Raids also getting the "Weak Connection" issue, sometimes even worse, Network Error strikes you, leaving my Pokemons just standing there in Raid, postponing the Flying Cup won't help with the issues if you don't fix it asap. For the Weekly Adventure Sync rewards, the game doesn't give any Berries/candies/Eggs with slots still available while claiming it. And they also didn't reply to any of your complains in the Support.
