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 650 million times and named “Best Mobile Game” by The Game Developers Choice Awards and “Best App of the Year” by TechCrunch, introduced the addition of over 80 beloved Pokémon among several other new features.
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 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. 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.
It’s time to get moving—your real-life adventures await!

Maybe stop saying it's dead?
Making a Pokémon game designed to appeal to everyone is pretty hard, yet niantic and the Pokémon company are killing it. Don't claim its dead. Think about it, they took a franchise that mostly appealed to the nerdier people and managed to make it the most downloaded app in the world for months on end. They didn't just leave it like that, continuous updates. It takes time to develop hundreds of sprites with motion, so enough with the "new generations aren't coming quickly enough" complaints. Do you really want to be overwhelmed with 800 Pokémon at once?
Yes, there's some issues obviously. The absence of legendaries, smeargle, and delibird. How long it took to get ditto. The obscene idea to region lock Pokémon and essentially make it impossible for 99% of players to catch them all and actually impossible to do it without leaving their continent. At least make them hatchable?
Anyways. The new update seems promising, raid battles are a much needed true multiplayer aspect, and hopefully the new gym mechanics will balance the gameplay. Bottom line. Just because you don't play it doesn't mean it's dead. Stop complaining and move on with your life if you're over it.
Game forces players to walk and makes it difficult for those who are passengers in cars. How are kids who aren't drivers suppose to catch Pokémon or collect Pokéstops if they are in a moving vehicle and have no freedom to walk where they want to? The game asks whether you are a passenger and most of us players are. Tracking system is no help to the players when nearby is on now. Pokemon that are rare or uncommon are only found in popular areas, can't find anything but the Pokemon we all can catch while walking in my neighborhood (pigeys, rattatas, spearows, zubats, and drowsy). I literally have to drive to crowded places to find Pokemon that I want to catch or are new(never while driving). Eggs never hatch anything new or exciting. Niantic continues making updates that players don't want and continue to kill the fun of this game. Now wih the most recent update the game is glitchy and doesn't load properly. They said for every first pokestop spun from Dec 25, 2016-Jan 3, 2017 you would get a one use incubator. Did not get one on Christmas but got one every day after. New gym system isn't fair to players who play alone. This game was really fun in the beginning, but updates throughout the game's existence seem to not improve the experience. Either by contacting support on issues or reviewing this app never seem to work to get these greeting creators of a pointless game.
Please ban spoofers.
The new gym system hinders legitimate players and gives a substantial advantage to spoofers. I'm level 39 and can't even fathom on why I should continue playing. The new gym system is worse than the old one. With the old system you have to earn your spot in a gym by raising the prestige of that gym. Now, we have less slots for gyms and no training against it is required. All spoofers have to do is use berries to hold their spots. It's even worse when the spoofers are on the same team as you. I deposited 9 Pokémon in gyms last night which took me about 3 hours to do. Today I woke up with none.. and only a measly 100 coins to accommodate for that. My question to Niantic is, why on earth are users with "slashed" Pokémon (those who have been proven to cheat) still allowed to play? Why not ban them? I really don't understand and it seems a lot harder for legitimate players to maintain gyms. A spoofer has the ultimate advantage because they can travel from gym to gym in a matter of seconds. Not to mention, they can still take part in Gym Raids. This seriously needs to be addressed and I refuse to spend money until you solve this problem. Till then, I'll just catch Pokémon I guess.
