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!

Great game but more content plz
I love the game and its easy to use interface but I and all of my friends at school agree that your amazing game lacks some necissary content to be a truly great game. I belive you should add trading pokemon above all else and along with that casual battles with near by players. Now for my personal favorite addition is that some people have a daily struggle with living in a small town like mine where there is literaly 1 pokestop in all of town and you never go near it so that results in having a very limited supply of poke balls which is by far the most important item in the game because without them you cant catch anything which results in the lack of xp which means you cant level up. You cant get good cp pokemon (much less pokemon at all) which means no gyms or raids. To combat this major issue I propose you and some sort of daily spin or add more pokestops and gyms. Now I doubt you (the devs) will see this much less read it all but if you do I greatly appreciate it. Thank you as I hope this may help bring life back into this once amazing and well played game.
P.S. ( I am saying this not only to make this game more fun for me but all of the friends I play this game with are compaining about a few of these issues and I would like to continue playing the game with the game with them as this is the only game I play and I fear they may quit playing if you do not add content. )
Berry Packages & More Candies on Transfers
I love this game far more than I ever thought I could! I downloaded when it was first released and played it for about a year and then stopped and uninstalled it. After returning to the game after a year off I must say with update after update the game is more than I ever could’ve imagined! That being said thank you to the developing team and everyone who has a part in making this game the bomb! I would like to say with rare spawns of Pokémon it would be a tremendous help if when transferring Pokémon you were able to get more than one candy. Like on event days when you catch a Pokémon you get 6 initial candies instead of just the three. I also think that along with all the other things buyable in the shop berry packages would be a huge help as well for people who have grinded and caught a ton of swablu, magikarp, wailmer, etc. and still don’t have the 400 candies to evolve them to be able to use piano berries at their disposal just by buying a berry package I get it not everyone can get those Pokémon and it shouldn’t be easy either but I’m level 35 and have yet to get any of those evolved I am close but still around 80 candies a piece away. All of that said thank you for all that had been done for the Pokémon go community and there is much appreciation for this game! These are the few small things I think would be perfect additions to the game just as a thought! Thank you and I’m still trying to catch’em all!!
A LOT better than before, improvements still needed
I downloaded day one and like a vast amount of people stopped playing after 6 months. 5 months ago I got back into PoGo as a lot of my coworkers play it. The improvements are great. I still think though there are many many more simple additions that can make the game even better. Please cache the Pokédex pictures, I don’t even know why I have to suggest this. Seems like a no brainer. Raids - need a waiting room that is visible to people in your map area (not right on top of gym) that you can wait in BEFORE spending a gym pass. While in the waiting room you can ping your friends to join you (or even nearby players). I know PvP is in the works but additional gameplay is needed. The monotonous grind can definitely get old, and although new generations of Pokémon subdue this, it will eventually lead to decline in players. Mini games or additional tasks/achievements would be great. Legendary gyms is a great idea, having defensive legendaries like Regiice is almost pointless besides the dex entry. This gym could only house legendaries and you get good loot for batting legendaries. This would add another element of leveling your defensive legendaries that are non-existent in the meta. Having gyms with Pve gym leaders you need to defeat like a gauntlet (similar to the gameboy games) would be awesome!! These aren’t difficult additions, please listen to us Niantic!!!
