Pokémon GO has now introduced social and trading features that allow Trainers to connect with each other by adding friends, sending Gifts, and participating in a new Friendship level system that unlocks bonuses. Trainers can now trade Pokémon with other Trainers nearby, earning a Candy Bonus for the Pokémon received.

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 800 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!

It’s time to get moving—your real-life adventures await!

Take down gym priority and shavers


Game should be tweaked to a First In Last Out (FILO) System. At least give some recognition to the fighter that took the gym down. First in first out don’t encourage gym take down. Also to counter shavers, the time limit to slot in must be increase to at least 1 hour. Not unless an entire gym is taken down, it would serve as a deterrent to shavers, especially current system when one spends an entire half an hour to take down a full gym only to be “shaved” off in less then half an hour later by a shaver. Also when it comes to gym take down, priority to slot in should be given to the one that initial the takedown. All too often efforts spend taking down a gym only for another team color to sneak in and join the fight stealing the thunder literally from under the one who initiated the takedown. Perhaps a certain token should be claimed before one take down a gym and once gym is down, the token to be returned to the gym before one can slot one Pokémon in. At least give credits to the fighters who initial taking down gyms and not slackers who just sneak in.

Good game... But a few issues


This is a great game for my cousins and I but it gets boring as we live in a place where gyms nor poké stops are available, and going out to a gym somewhere else is a big no-no on our parent's side. Please activate battles with wild pokémon so we still have fun while catching them, instead of flicking the screen with crossed fingers hoping the pokémon doesn't throw too big of a tantrum. The game should be a bit like the original pokémon game ideas, where weakening the pokémon by fighting with it makes it easier to catch.

Add healing centres to places too, but they should be a little more scarce than poké stops. A 30 min heal timer can then be applied to pokémon in the healing centre.

Breeding centres will also be quite interesting as then getting new pokémon from the ones you already have would be really helpful if you don't have a certain type of strong pokémon

Interaction with real players that are online and near you, and outside of the gym can also be fun. By tapping on the character of another player, a battle can be held then and there if the other player accepts the invitation to battle.

Adding this would make the game be way more fun to play. So please do try to implement this.

attacking n defending gyms

michael sim

do not quite agree to FILO as the defending team may not be strong. e.g. blissey as the last defender. agreed that it’s unfair for the attacker who initiated the attack losing out the slot to another team sneaking in to join the fight and getting the slot.
may be better to give priority to the attacker that win the most fight (normally should be the initial attacker) piority to the gym. instead of first in first out or last out, allow her to choose the position of the 6 slots before putting in her choice pokemon. the attacker with the second most win will be next. to also have a time limit in case she take her sweet time to slot in her pokemon defender. this way will allow the team to strategize the defending team formation.
