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!

Pokémon GO reviews and comments

The trick here to not play this one at home or get too consumed with FOMO like any mobile game. Playing it out and about here and there with the ability to transfer to Pokemon Home now is a good way to keep moving on days where you feel the laziest. 
I've been playing since launch day 2016 and I can confidently say that the game is now what it should have been when it was first released. Despite a multitude of problems at launch, including a constantly crashing server and only the first generation of pokemon, the game has since gone through multiple revamps including the gym system, adding pvp and trading, and generally fixing it. It's genuinely fun now, and you can get the full pokemon experience without spending a dime. 
I've reached Level 38, caught every Pokemon in my region, and walked over a thousand kilometers ingame.  You could say that I'm a fan.

However, your enjoyment of this game will be directly proportional to how good your local map is.  I lived in an area with five gyms and 5 additional Pokestops;  I work in Downtown with over 10 gyms and tens of Pokestops nearby.  I've got plenty of content to explore and have enjoyed it immensely.  If, however, you live in a more rural area or somewhere lacking in stops and gyms, this game can end up being a slog.

In addition, having an active community of players nearby can give a grand experience of belonging to something bigger... not to mention it's fun seeing people in suits with briefcases standing around to catch a Charizard.

This game is the realization of Satoshi Tajiri's dream of providing a world of exploration in a hand-held format.  The original vision for Pokemon was to help city-bound kids find a huge world to explore full of magical creatures.  20 years later, we now have a game tied to the real world inspiring actual real-world exploration.

For me, Pokémon Go is one of the best "Games" apps for the iPhone. A MUST for all Pokémon Fans! Many of us grew up with Pokémon and somehow can't let go of it altogether. It's just great that even after two Decades, Pokémon is still so popular. Collecting The Type of Pokémon and filling your Pokédex is neither too hard nor too easy-just perfect balance in terms of Difficulty. Here in Germany there are an enormous Number of Gyms and Pokestops, which is very Player-friendly. (Not anywhere in the World like that ...) Increasing His player level takes a relatively long time but a "Challenge" must also be there. (If you have Friends who also like to play Pokémon Go, you can certainly do it faster if you walk around together.) Especially the Events, which occur quite often (E.g. more frequent appearance of water Pokémon), are a great Method for us to stay on the Ball when it comes to completing Pokédex. Just a great Pastime while walking somewhere! I am offered much more than before on the List of friends. You can fight together in the Gyms, send Gifts and Pokémon can of course also be exchanged, but only if you are Close to each other ... For all Pokémon nostalgists, Memories come up ... Of course you could swap at a distance these days but somehow I find it nice that you can't.

I do not understand why it can be found that Pokémon in their early forms eg embrylex. It can be found in shiny but not tyranitar in RAID which is very unfortunate, likewise for the other Pokémon. It would be as good to see these friends connected by a color light because we do not know who is connected or not. Also there are Pokémon still not found as nunja which is my favorite. The stuff that would just be wonderful would be powers to see the player within 50 meter where these friends. For arenas a little improvement would just be cool as a bonus of Pokepiece thanks to defensive bearings using the berries and staying longer than 8h20. A great choice of attacks for Pokémon only for Pokemon catchable in nature because the attacks are too repetitive. Classify these pokemons by IV, add the EV that gets by attacking some Pokémon in arena or RAID as in the game Pokémon, new pokeball that would be obtained as community day with the pokestop. I had a lot of friends who ask me is what it would be possible to have a legendary one by arenas. I got the idea of a new landing for friends catching that increases by 0.25 and a small shiny meeting increase all this will last 3 months or 6. You do a lot of work so if one of my own ideas taken by other players or even the Pokémon game would just be huge. Thank you for all 😁
