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!

Love the new updates but...
Love the new updates but I have a few suggestions to make this game even more better! Ok so first of all, I love the new raid battles! They are so cool and I have a chance of catching a cool Pokémon! But, sometimes you are battling a raid by yourself, and it's hard to win. Especially if you are at a lower kind of level. (I'm on level 21) So, it would be cool to add some kind of chat, or like when you see the raids around you, it should have a number that says the number of people there now. The second suggestion is trading. So, trading Pokémon is fun! The card game, the ds games, and more!! I love wonder trade the most!! I have heard that they are adding trading soon, so I hope that's true!! (Pokémon company if you are reading this please also do wonder trading!!) and my last suggestion to make this game better is to have more ways to earn poke coins. Now, the only ways to get poke coins is to leave your Pokémon at a gym or buy them. So what I want is to have more ways to get poke coins. Like, at poke stops or when you catch Pokémon you get a few. Because sometimes I want poke balls really badly, but I don't have enough poke coins. See what i mean? (And this is really a problem for when you don't have poke stops near you!!) but overall, this is one of the best mobile games ever! I know that there will probably be more improvements soon, but, I LOVE THIS GAME!!! ( And also thank you for taking your time for reading this! 😜)
The new changes are nice
I can't even use this app the farthest I've got is making my character and catching your first Pokemon that's it it keeps telling server issues please come back later I feel like if you dont live in a very populated area your out of luck then again I can't even play the game so fix your stuff
Edit: I did finally get to play and it's really fun I've caught a bunch of Pokemon and it's actually quite easy so far only concern I have is people who live in rural areas and small town I'm not going to spend my time drive to different bigger towns to get better Pokemon that's a waist of gas and time and if you want people to waist money on gas to drive to a different town than you need to lower the prices of your gold coin packs to balance out
Edit: I have to be honest shortly after the updated review I quit playing and deleted the app and now my brother who I haven't seen in awhile was playing and I was watching him play and I noticed lots of changes so I redownloaded the app and started playing and I'm really impressed with the game now I live in a rural area and when the game first came out my town had 1 pokestop and it was my church and now we have 4 pokestops and a 1 gym so it has improved and there is more diversity in Pokémon in my area so far I'm very impressed with the new changes with the game and the fact you can request more gym and pokestop locations
This is a great game! I'm still addicted to it. I do have a few suggestions. One is make the regional(Tauros, Mr. Mime, Farfetch'd, Kangaskhan, Heracross, and Corsola) be found everywhere and not just in their regions. But i guess that won't be a problem once trading comes out and we can trade to get those pokémon. I've been saving up my Tauros for a reason now! One more thing is to let people hatch the regional in eggs. Per se, if I lived in the region where I can only get Tauros, let me get Kangaskhan from eggs without traveling to that region. I keep getting Ponyta, Paras, and Nidoran, which are all pretty common. Next, when we have lure modules or Incense, PLEASE make some fun stuff spawn, like Jynx or Hitmonlee or Gyarados. Whenever i do lures i get Nidoran(of both genders), eevee, pidgey, spearow, and occasionally a shellder. Aren't lures supposed to lure kind of rare pokemon? Finally, for raid battles, there should be a chat room so you can chat with trainers to see if they are going to the raid or if there are any rare spawns around. It should be accessible to the main screen. I hate going to a level 3 or 4 or legendary raid and there being no one there, because i don't want to battle by myself because i won't win. if there's a chat room, you'd be able to find out if you're gonna be battling alone!
