Pokémon GO has now introduced the Trainer Battles feature. Enjoy one-on-one Pokémon battles with other Trainers nearby, or practice battling against team leaders Spark, Candela, and Blanche! Trainers can earn rewards for participating in battle and show off exciting Pokémon skills in one of three different Trainer Battle Leagues. 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 850 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!

Updates are getting a little old.
Enough with the every other day updates
do you know how many times pokemon go asks me to update? 2 to 3 times a month. when my gps doesn't refresh my location quickly enough, you know who i can count on to show me where i am? pokemon go. these guys are so freaking dedicated to keeping this game as good as possible and it's insane. pokemon go is the freshest game of the century and the developers go hard as hell.
Hey creators of this game can you please please please take off the ability to have “child safe mode” thank you
I love this game but there are glitches. When I’m about to collect everything in a Pokéstop, it kicks me off the game but I can go back in and collect it. I love the models for the Pokémon and how the concept is simple. You don’t have to become champion like other games. I enjoy it and my friends do to and that’s all that matters to me!!!
People die playing this game
They greatly increased the areas Pokemon spawn in now. Friends system is cool but I have yet to find enough people for a raid :( I have read multiple reviews and it seems like the developer will not listen to its fan base to help improve the game . Overall a much better game since the Marco Polo fail shortly after launch.
I can’t access this at all I was upset when this app had discontinued support for iPhone 5 but it was understandable because it was old hardware but when i finally upgraded to an iPhone XR I was excited to finally play this game again but when I downloaded the app and started it up it instantly crashes on the Niantic screen without letting me log in to my account I’ve tried reinstalling the app 20+ times with no success and I’ve contacted Apple Support and they said there is nothing they can do so they told me to contact Niantic so I did and by the time the new update came out it still doesn't work I’m just kind of fed up with waiting all my friend go out and play this game while I'm stuck at home just because I can’t get this game to work and it makes no sense because I have a better phone than all of them please fix this I will change my review to 5 stars if I can just play this game again.
Stop making the updates for the app mandatory!!! I have zero reason to have the app open at home. And if the update is mandatory and so big that it cannot update over my network, then I can’t play the game until I’m connected to WiFi again. There have been so many updates that I’m to the point where I don’t even want to play anymore because play has been so impeded!! I’m so frustrated!!!
