NEW! It’s time to interact with your Pokémon like never before—Pokémon GO has recently introduced GO Snapshot! Taking AR photos is a snap with this easy-to-use update. You’re now able to take photos of any Pokémon you have in your collection. Document your adventures by taking photos of your favorite Pokémon to share with friends or as a memento of your epic journey.
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!

Ratings and Reviews
Research Tasks Give you Legendaries
The research task feature is an amazing addition. I only started playing again because of it, daily quests are a great way to get more involved. Giving those who dont have friends playing with them A CHANCE TO CATCH LEGENDARY POKEMON, they are also adding Aloan pokemon to the game.
Pokemon go is constantly being updated, there are cool events to catch your favorite shiny every month, events about cleaning up the planet, new legendaries, just constant content. This game isnt dead just because not everyone plays it, it’s only getting better. So pick it up again and see just how much they’ve changed
The one review at the top is outdated, misinformed and probably written by 9 year old who doesn’t understand how games work. The game is huge, each pokemon having their moves added into it. Is plain stupid, get realistic. Its a phone game, for free. If you want more realistic pokemon battles then go buy a 3DS.
It saddens me to see that Pokémon Go gets a lot of negativity from players. I’ve been playing since it was first released and I’ve literally had no issues with it. Yeah sometimes it’s glitchy and a bit slow, but Niantic have been quick to fix that and improve the game as soon as they could. They constantly bring out new features and events which keeps the thrill of the game high, they have also just brought out a few generation 4 Pokémon which is so exciting! The general game play is awesome and has been since day 1. I can’t wait to see where Pokémon Go goes because there’s so much more that they could do with it!
I think it’s so good that it includes literally everyone and anyone of all ages, we all do Raids and go hunting for Pokémon together and it just brings the community together. We are constantly meeting new people as we go too!
Don’t listen to the 1 star reviews, I am not entirely sure why everyone is so salty. It’s probably a bunch of young kids that are mad because they can’t catch every single Pokémon - if they could, it would ruin the fun and the whole point of the game.
All in all, I really do love Pokémon go, the original Nintendo games will still always be better just because of the nostalgia. However maybe as the younger children play this game will be nostalgic for them in the following years to come.
ALL THOSE WHO WANT TO MAKE THE BATTLES FUNNER
We’ll Pokémon go has made GYM BATTLES? well really are they cool battles do they take Skill no , they take skill those gym battles. Any ways what I want in the gym battle
S to get ... A BETTER VERSION LIKE INSTEAD OF TAPING THE SCREEN AND DOING NOTHING ELS BUT TAP ... IT SHOULD BE LIKE this ... you can have a strong Pokémon but the other player could have a lot more skill at battles like you could tell your Pokémon to jump in the air to dodge the enemy and also shot fire at the enemy Pokémon and like pikachu use IRON TAIL and PIKACHU DODGE , PIKACHU JUMP , PIKACHU DO SOME THING THAT MAKE ME NOT HAVE TO KEEP TAPING THE SCREEN AND NOT THINK ABOUT HAVING TO LOSE COZ MY POKÉMON IS STRONGER. and thank you for listening.
