Join Trainers across the globe who are discovering Pokémon as they explore the world around them. The newest update to Pokémon GO, the global gaming sensation that has been downloaded over 750 million times and named “Best Mobile Game” by The Game Developers Choice Awards and “Best App of the Year” by TechCrunch, introduced a revamped Gym gameplay experience, including the opportunity to join together with others to battle against powerful Pokémon in the new Raid Battle feature!
Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Pikachu, and many other Pokémon have been discovered!
Now’s your chance to discover and capture the Pokémon all around you—so get your shoes on, step outside, and explore the world. You’ll join one of three teams and battle for the ownership of Gyms with your Pokémon at your side.
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.
Take on Gym battles and defend your Gym
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. You can also participate in Raid Battles at Gyms around the world. 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!

I live at the far end of nowhere. For me to find a Pokestop or gym it takes a minimum 15 minute drive. Once a three mile run only had two total Pokemon show up. I also live where the only Internet access I have comes through my cellular network, to get to a place where I have public internet access takes about 40 minutes. When the game constantly requires updates in order to play, I am left with the option of wasting my precious data or driving at least an hour and 20 minute round trip.* If I felt the updates were worthwhile, I wouldn't gripe and the game would receive a higher rating, many of the required updates do not improve functionality though and, in the most recent case, forced a download with an unneeded feature that doesn't function at all.
I have been a Pokemon fan since Red and Blue hit the States and I have always valued the franchise for being inclusive of all people; I really wish Niantic would make the game more inclusive for people who live in a rural area.
*Note to those arguing I should be on an unlimited plan: an unlimited plan would actually work against my ability to use a hotspot for homework, they cap hotspot access at 11GB/month and during the school year I need at least 1GB/day to run required software.
i definitely love how young level players are able to earn spots at gyms now!!! I also appreciate the pokeball icons that appear on how you catch your pokémon. There should be a pokedex for gyms that are being held within a 15-30 mile radius of the players location and you should be able to navigate there through the pokémon Go app. I also believe that it's good to earn more coins if your pokémon hold a gym longer than a day. Every additional hour after the first 24 hours should add atleast 10-15 coins. non powerful pokémon that are fully leveled should be able to compete with high cp pokémon. I am apart of team mystic and i love how the professor analyzes my new/old pokémon. You should be able to battle wild pokémon you don't want to catch with a pokémon that is either equal or lesser cp than the wild pokémon and earn stardust. if the pokémon is higher than the wild pokémon by a margin then less stardust is awarded. when battling wild pokémon stardust should be earned based on battle performance between the pokémon that battled!!! i love this game and hopefully you guys make the pokémon league for the elite trainers who are serious about this amazing platform.
Anyone who grew up playing Pokèmon should understand how I feel about this game. Totally geeked out when it came out, and I'm *still* excited to play. It is basically a fitness app, which I think is vcool. What better way to motivate people to exercise more than the promise of a complete Pokèdex? Haha. Yes, it is glitchy at times and there are a lot of additional features I would like to see implemented in the future but give 'em a break. If it isn't working at all, it is most likely your phone or the wifi connection. I'm hoping to see a friends list at some point, and being able to battle each other or other passerby as opposed to having to go to gyms where the trainers are a much higher lvl than me and I have no chance. I wish there was more to do on it sometimes but I'm cool with the fact that it was created at all, and isn't poorly executed. 👏🏼 Much love to you all at Niantic, I'm stoked for the future gens to be released!
