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!

Don't listen to all the bad reviews.
The more popular a game gets the more critics it gets. This is definitely worth the download. It's a wonderful game despite it's now 3 star rating.
I know this critic, however, is all around the place, and that's that people are running short on items like pokéballs. I don't know where everyone lives but if you're really that short go somewhere with a lot of pokéstops and just stock up. I live somewhat next to a shop circuit and I've gone there and just drove around and gotten 200 or so pokéballs from simply walking or driving around in a circle. Go to a mall or something and stock up if you're having that problem.
What is bothering me though- and I know it's bothering other people is the "you're going too fast" icon. I know you need it for lawsuit reasons, so if you want to keep it, go ahead. But at least make it so it works correctly. I have literally been on my couch sitting and doing nothing and it tells me that I'm going too fast. If you want a speed reminder then please make it so it doesn't tell you to slow down when you're not moving. It does that to me all the time and it gets really frustrating.
This app however, overall is wonderful. Don't listen to all the bad things people have said about it. It's really a great app and I am still going to keep it despite its small defects.
I need balls...
No seriously, I need Pokéballs. The Pokéstops are killing me. I don't have money to spend on Pokéballs, Pokéstops don't give enough, & I can't get Pokéstops from the car anymore. Before someone says, "You're not supposed to play from the car!" I know that, I do. However, the game also says "Do not enter dangerous areas" & guys....I LIVE in a dangerous area. I went to my nearest Pokéstop by a little league field & set off a lure in broad daylight with people out & about & was solicited for sex by a stranger. There are gunshots & fights during the day. I cannot walk around where I live because someone will mug/shoot me JUST for my phone(it's the only valuable I carry when I play). The thing is that I don't battle or train much yet. I'm more concerned with catching, evolving, & hatching Pokémon because I want the best ones to level up. Stardust is too precious to waste on Pokémon with IVs under 90%. The bonuses ARE helping & are greatly appreciated, but it's still unbalanced. So I have an idea(please consider it)...my thought is to allow trading @ the Pokéstops. Have an excess of potions & revives? Trade them for Pokéballs. Only getting basic potions that aren't enough to heal your high HP Pokémon? Trade large lots for a few better potions. Have to many Pokéballs? Trade for raspberries or whatever else you need. That's my idea. That way every trainer regardless of their focus gets what they NEED.
The game needs to start giving decent Pokémon from 2k and 5K eggs. It's very frustrating to take time to walk to hatch an egg to get some common Pokémon that we have pop up by the dozens every day. It gets very discouraging.
Also, it's rare anymore to see new Pokémon in sightings or if you do, they don't pop up to try and catch them. It gets very frustrating to spend a couple of hours seeking Pokémon only to have the same common ones come up over and over again.
Also, only show things in sightings at PokéStops that we don't see very often. We don't really need to know that there is a Pidgey or Rattata or some other common Pokémon at a PokéStop. We have them come up by the dozens every day, so that is not going to entice us to run to that PokéStop when we will probably have several of them pop up on our way to that PokéStop.
Please keep new Pokémon showing up to keep the interest in the game, because after a while, you really lose interest when you get the same things over and over that you don't want anymore of. It is so rare to ever get anything new, that I am literally about burned out on keeping on playing, so please do something to keep the interest in the game. It's one thing to say a lot of new Pokémon have been added, but if you don't ever see any of them to catch them, it gets very discouraging to say the least. Thank you in advance for your help.
