Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Pikachu, and many other Pokémon have been discovered on planet Earth!
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 prestige and 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, 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.
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.
It’s time to get moving—your real-life adventures await!

Some constructive feed back
I am constantly having issues signing in. It keeps saying unable to authenticate. The times when I'm already signed in, when I open the app it keeps saying failed to log in. I have been out somewhere on numerous occasions and my partner or one of my friends will proclaim with delight "snorlax" or "dragonite" or "porygon" or "chansey" and by the time I have finally signed in, or the app has sorted itself out, the Pokemon has disappeared. As you can imagine this is not only frustrating but heartbreaking too! That's my only real negative thing I have to say about the app. I would like to make a suggestion to you guys though that myself and quite a few people I know agree on and that is that you should be able to buy stardust packs in the store. Kinda like your Christmas boxes I guess, except you don't have to have a variety of things in there just have say "Stardust pack 1" = 100coins for 5,000stardust "Stardust pack 2" = 500coins for 40,000stardust "Stardust pack 3" = 1,000coins for 100,000stardust. I don't know the exact figures that you would use, although I think that these ones would be fairly accurate. It may seem like a lot of stardust to be awarded but I chew through 70,000 stardust in 10 power ups at the moment. Anyway, I hope this has been informative and constructive and I look forward to seeing what your game has in store for us in the future! Cheers 🍻
Pokemon go is one of the worst designed games i have played. The developers must not play the game as they dont seem to understand what updates are needed and what is not. Every update seems to make the game less playable meaning they dont understand what is good and bad about the game. Niantic spend more time developing an AR system that can easily be sold rather than making pokemon go into a good game.
Pokemon go is a AR mobile activity tracker with a pokemon skin over the top. It feels like a beta project(alpha was ingress) they are using to develop a system that can have any skin added to it. It is not really a game at all.
It is being set up in a way to make revenue from patrons as well as companies like mcdonalds who get to advertise ingame and attract players through pokestops.
Niantic is not interested in making pokemon a better game, just in making a better more marketable system for resale.
When reading the 5 star comments the seem suspiciously like fake paid Chinese commenters. No one is happy with the game anymore. I have never before come across a game that gets worse over time and updates.
No more public transport and play
How about releasing the update to the App Store before forcing me to an update that's not there yet, meaning I can't play until it hits the App Store. Was a paying customer, especially when in small countryside towns with few pokestops, i will no longer buy pokeballs as I'm disgusted by this blatant money grab by putting speed limits on pokestops. Use the excuse of safety all you want. If that's the reason, fine, at least double the amount of pickups from pokestops, like during the pokestops event. This latest greatest update includes gyms crashing numerously while levelling them up, leaving me in a panic especially once they've reached the next level and I tap gym to assign a Pokemon to it and the app crashes! Can't catch Pokemon anymore either. I work 12hour days and travel 2hours a day on public transport, which is the only time I get to restock my pokeballs for the next day. Not anymore. Thanks Niantic, or is it Pedantic?
