Ratings and Reviews
Great game, candy suggestion
I have been playing Pokémon for 5 years. There’s always new missions and adventures, so many different ways to battle, collect Pokémon, evolve, meet/make friends, etc. This game is not a game you will get tired of playing, guaranteed. My only suggestion that I have always thought would be a great addition, is to allow the transfer of candies. Some Pokémon can’t evolve, as anyone who plays knows this already. Take Tauros for example, I always catch him when I see him as I try to catch every Pokémon to gain stardust and level up. However, his candies add up and there is nothing to do with them except to level your Tauros up. This is great if you plan to use this Pokémon in battles and gyms, but Tauros (at least in my area) isn’t a popular Pokémon that trainers absolutely have to have, or have to catch if they see in the wild. My suggestion would be if Niantic would incorporate a way to transfer candies. Maybe you could transfer 50 candies and get a rare candy in return, or transfer a certain type of candy, perhaps 100 grass-type candies and get a Mossy Lure. Maybe even something as simple as trading candies for stardust. This could be another great way to help trainers level up their other Pokémon, catch different Pokémon, and give them a reason to catch certain Pokémon who they know will never evolve. I hope Niantic will consider this in the future if they haven’t already. As always, gotta catch ‘em all! Happy playing, trainers.
Hands down, best app available.
I’ll shoot it to you straight. Don’t listen to the negative reviews. Contrary to “popular” belief, this game isn’t “paywalled” unless you have a fear of missing out on what other players spend 6+ hours achieving in a day. A very small portion of exclusive events are paywalled, like go fest/safari zone and that’s it. If you want items from the store, Drop in as many gyms as possible, it’s good for 350 coins per week if done right, and have reasonable expectations (and by that I mean shiny Pokémon. Shiny Pokémon in GO are given out at an insanely high rate compared to main series games) Competitive gameplay (Go battle league) having some glitching issues, doesn’t make it a bad game for those that choose not to play competitively, and even with the glitching, proper investments in Pokémon far outweigh any glitching that occurs, that and most players just expect to go 5/5 on every round played and anything less than that is a failure on Niantic’s part. Raids are very easy if you toss your IV expectations out the window and focus on high CP counters. Each Pokémon has given base stats, and IV doesn’t make or break most Pokémon when raiding, counters make or break your success. The game is completely add free, it’s free of actual currency, it’s fun, it’s addictive and it gets you outside. Just play it how YOU want to play it, and you’ll love it regardless.
This app is an amazing app! It is an amazing way to kill time and a great app to get your exercise in! There are a couple things that I think could be better. I feel there should be a chat space! So you can talk to the people you are friends with to meet up and do raids or battle together. Instead of having to download an app which even then you need to at least know there phone number. I feel you should be able to get more than 50 coins a day. Or at least be able to get a bonus for every continuous day your Pokémon is at a gym. Saying that I know that the prices to buy stuff is set to match the amount of coins able to be received each day. So if needed I feel it would be ok to up the price on coins a little. For trading.... I feel you should be able to choose what your friend gets. Or at least be able to put something in there for them besides a sticker. This also adds onto the fact that we need a chat system between friends to be able to tell what each other needs and or is receiving. I know you have the notifications for what your friend has received but it would still be nice to be able to say “oh thanks for the poke balls dude” or something along the lines of that. Overall this game is amazing! And I get on it several times a day. But I am sure other people have been saying things along the lines of what I have said! I mean none of this is no rude way but I do feel that these things should either be changed or added into the game!
