Service is great it’s just that there were too many errors on day one. If those weren’t there, then the service would be perfect.
Great app I love bringing the Pokémon I have had ever since I was a kid with me. The gts and wonder box feature is a lot of fun to spend hours on trying to get shiny, legendary, and strong Pokémon to add to my team. I only have minor problems including the inability to listen to music while using the app because it keeps pausing as I go into different parts of the app. Also there should be an option to skip the trading animation as when trading lots of Pokémon it get annoying after a bit. Lastly you cannot change or turn off the sound of the trading. Overall great app though I would recommend it.
This is so useful and helpful to many people who have played the ds a ton! It is amazing what this app can do!
I really enjoy the app, but I have some concerns. First off, the fact that you can’t trade mythical Pokémon is the worst. People are always asking for Meltan, Melmetal, and. Zerarora, but you can’t trade them. Either make it an option to trade them, or don’t let people choose them as an option at all. Also, I got two of my favorite Pokémon from this app, but I cant transfer them to my shield game. It’s a bit frustrating. That’s about all I have to say. Please fix these issues soon!
Please fix the trade rooms
I’ve always loved Pokémon Bank and GTS features, and it is really cool to have all of my Pokémon from every adventure I’ve ever played in the same place. However, I think the GTS features are really lacking. I haven’t used the GTS too much since Diamond and Pearl, but I find it odd that we can’t trade mythical and special event Pokémon. For example, if I want to trade my shiny Arceus for an Ash-Greninja, this is impossible. Another thing is the search feature. It’s cool that we can just type in the name, but where do we select that we only want a SHINY version of the Pokémon we asked for? Just making everything a bit more advanced is something to think about in the future, but the app is still definitely pretty useful. Now I can bother and show my friends all of my Pokémon even without my Switch on me! Bless their souls
I’ve been using GTS for three different games now and I am still floored that you can’t request a Pokémon be shiny for trade or search by shiny only. As a shiny collector, it would make it a whole lot easier if I could request that the Pokémon I receive be shiny like I would if I required it to be female or level 25.
I see a lot of potential in this app, so here are my two cents as a long time Pokémon fan. THE GTS: ⭐️- I was very happy to see the GTS! After it not being in Sword or Shield, this is a great feature to have back. ❌- Mythical/Untradable Pokémon shouldn't be able to be asked for on GTS. It’s really annoying when you find a Pokémon you want, only for the person to be asking for a Mew. A majority of trades on the GTS are like this, making it cluttered with impossible trades. ROOM TRADES: ❌- Unfortunately I cant really complement this feature. It’s almost identical to wonder trades, except it’s more limited for no real reason. No one trades good Pokémon on it, and you might as well just use SW/SH to trade with your friends. This feature would work MUCH better if the timer was quicker. 90% of the time, almost half the room leaves before the timer is up, and it’s never worth waiting the full time anyways. Instead of 20 people, make it 10, change the timer to 60 seconds, and make the room automatically active as soon as the room is full. WONDER BOXES: ⭐️- Wonder trading has always been one of the most fun things to do and an easy way to get rid of Pokémon you don’t really want anymore, so of course I was happy to see it included here. Unfortunately... ❌- Wonder boxes take WAY too long to finish. It would have been nicer to just include regular wonder trading. Waiting 3-5 hours for a box full of Magikarp isn’t worth the wait, like, at all. I understand why you would try and change it up, but why try and change perfection? Either hurry up the time it takes to trade the boxes, or add/change it to regular wonder trading. CHALLENGES: ⭐️- Having challenges is always fun and makes sure players have something to do. I love the sticker collecting idea and would love to see it expanded upon. ❌- Stickers don’t have much of a point other than to decorate your little player card thing, which is cute, but It would be really neat to see a sticker book instead of just upgrading stickers to decorate a card that no one looks at. It would be even better if this gave us in game item, like rate candies, berries, etc. For now, the rewards aren’t enough for me personally to try and get them. NITPICKS AND SUGGESTIONS ⭐️- More avatar choices please! ⭐️- Adding something similar to Poké-Pelego, Pokemon camp, or Pokemon Amie would be AMAZING. Home is pretty static and boring. ⭐️- Add fitness to achievements, for example; “Walk 10,000 steps and get a 20 BP” ⭐️- Add a “Sort by Favorites” option when looking at your bank.
This isn’t a Pokémon game Let me save you some time by explaining what features this actually offers: •extremely restrictive trading( including actively removing Pokémon from the trade-able list as they please) •a subscription service that gives you access to functions that use to be part of the games at launch(and from what I’ve heard and experience either doesn’t work or just straight up gives you nothing) •if you want real access to all of your Pokémon you will need to have two different versions of the app open because for some reason the switch app and phone app are COMPLETELY DIFFERENT(idk what nonsense you have to go through for the DS games) Game freak and Nintendo used to bring me so much joy, I have played every main story game but now.... every time I see something new from you is makes me sad Oh and they seem to be editing out negative reviews idk if they can but my last review(made not long after launch) is gone
I was so happy that finally we could trade as a family with only on device. That didn’t happen. Even though the accounts are under mine, I’m blocked from trading with them because of age. I let them pick their names and all so I gave the youngest my phone so I’d still be in control of when access was allowed. Long story short the accounts were linked wrong because they used auto fill and clicked the wrong one. This is a major problem when one is special needs and ended up with the wrong starter. (I have submitted a ticket but not heard back and will update this accordingly after). Also it left my son unable to trade with me because of the age restrictions that shouldn’t be on his account and would give the one who shouldn’t be able to the ability to Have a friends list. I accept that was my bad for letting them help set it up but the switch linked account option doesn’t work. So the ability to change may be there but we cannot access it. We can’t log out to share the iPad and you can’t ever log into more than one device (if you do you have to uninstall and reinstall to access your account again) which is inconvenient but not the end of the world. But I really don’t like that my family still cannot interact with one another since we can’t even add the youngest to a friends list but that same child can trade with a random person who names their Pokémon who knows what. (Which is why the switch is locked from the internet from parental settings with the provider so I can monitor in coming wonder trades for the youngest member). So we’re still calling my brother to arrange trades so we can have him bring his device and swap turns trading until people,have the Pokémon they want. It didn’t make life easier. Only benefit is as of now, in theory, I can get them Pokémon from previous games since I pay. It just takes a really long time. But for older kids and adults I would give 4 stars. Just not those with anyone younger than 16 that wants to trade as a family if you only have one device.
