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 dynamic weather system that recognizes real-world weather, impacting the gameplay experience in a variety of ways, from changing the Pokémon encountered to increasing their effectiveness in combat.

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!

Editors' Notes

Once again, the world’s gone crazy for Pokémon. This time around, the lovable pocket monsters have invaded our parks, roads, even homes. We can't stop running around the neighborhood collecting items—and capturing 3D monsters with the futuristic augmented reality makes it feel like they're actually there. Becoming a real-life Pokémon Trainer is as cool as it sounds, but the hook here—as always—is trying to catch ’em all.

Still love it


I was in her majistys hotel when GO was released and as I am a Pokemon fan from day one I decided to boycott it as I thought “how dare they release a new game while it’s number 1 fan was incarcerated” well it didn’t take long for me to crumble and I love it even though I’m waaay behind everyone else. I live rural but are lucky enough to have a handful of gyms and stops in walking distance which I take back everyday. I walk more to hatch eggs and it is a joy to play! Other than the hackers which spoil it! They stand out a mile when they have ridiculous high level ultra rare shiny Pokemon defending gyms! They should get more punishment than a ‘soft ban’ which allows them to carry on teleporting willy nilly around the world at the price of a daft pokestop bam for a few hours! Come on nintendic it’s 2017 beat these game spoilers! But in conclusion, I do agree with most, if you are a dirty city dweller then you can thrive on this game with no actual cost! Our main city of york is crazy for rare Pokemon and pokestops! I have to drive, park up and do a 30min walk to get the benefits most get for just a quick walk round the block! Sort it out! But still rate it 75% out of 100% way more fun than sun and moon! And cheaper!

Atrocious experience

Jon Cullen

Despite additions of some content the game is severely lacking and has zero end game content even one and a half years after it released. Countless bugs still exist and every "update" introducing new ones which may never be resolved. The communication from Niantic is truly appalling and without doubt the worst I have ever experienced, numerous features in the game have still not been explained in terms of the relevant game mechanics and how they work. The main tag line for the Pokemon franchise is gotta catch em all which is still impossible as some haven't been released while others that have are pointlessly locked to specific regions for no benefit to the user. The worst feature by far is the ex raid system which is less fun than hugging a cactus and the only way of obtaining a certain Pokemon, mainly as the selection criteria have not ever been detailed and it is essentially a random number generator. The whole game requires very little skill and is solely a test for your luck and desire to waste time performing repetitive nonsense. Easily the worst Pokemon game ever to plague the series, Hey you Pikachu and Pokemon channel stand out as masterpieces next to this pathetic excuse for a game.
