Pokémon Go is great but a couple things
First of all I want to address the bad reviews left by people who hate the overpricing of remote raid passes and them skipping Galar. Them skipping Galar was for hype, and for more downloads, which I can see where they’re coming from, and they might be developing gigantimaxing, who knows? The remote raid changes were necessary for their game as it was becoming too much of a thing for players to do at home instead of going out and exploring WHICH IS THE POINT OF THE GAME. And if niantic decides to limit their most money making source, then they know what they’re doing.
I’ve been playing on/off since 2016, and in the past 2 years I’ve really gotten back into it! The game is great, awesome events, community days, my area has a pretty great and active community! Awesome shinies and they release Pokémon and shiny Pokémon every couple weeks, overall pretty good variety! There is a few glitches though, like some people have lost master balls, and that’s a pretty hard thing for them to experience! And there’s so many go battle league bugs don’t get me started on that I stopped playing a long time ago, but no draws just wins and losses and so many stupid bugs, random losses and invisible Pokémon, not to mention the lag. Not perfect: 🌟4/5🌟
Shorter Version: Don’t get mad at Niantic for their decisions, even if you don’t like them you will get used to it. Great game but many bugs that need to be fixed and addressed. 🌟4/5🌟
Mostly good game
I would say overall that the game is fun. However there are some ways tbat I feel would make the game much better. For example when you catch pokemon, I feel like the rare candies should be able to be used on any pokemon like in the original game and not just when you win blank ones. I also feel like some of the challenges are completely crap. For example you get zero credit for the masterball challenge if you lose the raid or the battle. You can literally spend hours and days trying but get zero credit and fail the challenge regardless of the work you put in if you lose. That really is not fair at all to the users. Stardust should be in the shop for purchase and the absolute worst part of the game is when you trade a Pokémon and its stats change. In the original game this does not happen. You can send a 3 star pokemon to your friend and suddenly it become a 1 or even a 0 star. It takes all the fun of trading away when you spend months trying to find 3 stars and then the stats are tossed around if you try to share it. When you win a raid, you also should automatically get the pokemon. It shouldn’t be allowed to run away. If they would fix these issues I would happily change my rating but until then I will have to say that the issues I mention make it hard to want to play sometimes.
