It is ok however to delete the account you have to submit a form to the company, which is fine however the reason all reflect negatively on the customer making the company look flawless. Game play is ok but progression is slow. I suggest you make the "reasons" section free text so that you can get an accurate assessment for process improvement instead of a BS pre stagged answer.

Honestly i really enjoy the game thus far thank you for all the recent updates niantic... but there is one thing that has been bothering me and that is 1v1 with friends and trading... both features were shown in the original trailer... yet again i love the care your giving the game niantic i truly praise it but i would like to know whats happening with my 2 listed thoughts Full Review

The game has been majorly revamped and has benefited from it. It's so much better to see that content and events are happening more often. Hopefully we'll see the first wave of gen 4 by April or May and a nice egg event will happen to get a higher chance of a baby Pokemon from gen 4. Keep up the great work only downside is legendaries. I can't get them as not enough people in my area play Pokemon go and I'm not travelling for a Pokemon. Can we have a legendary event for one week you can get 3* legendary raids? That would make it easier. Full Review

I'm an android user and also on a budget so I can't get the latest and greatest ever really. And every phone I've ever had cannot run this stupid game. The developers really need to work with the lower quality phones to get it to be able to detect the GPS in them because it will load the character model, and the UI. Nothing else though. As soon as it starts loading it just says GPS signal not found and it can't ever find it total garbage Full Review
Gene Lee Published date: February 14, 2018
Updated content since the app was launched. Still recommended. Suggestion: After the daylight savings time change, raiding ends too early in the evenings. Setting raids to continue spawning eggs until after 8pm EST at the earliest would be great. Thanks and keep up the hard work. Full Review
Joana Pereira Published date: February 21, 2018
I really like the game. I stopped playing for quite a while because of the connection problems. I made the mistake of choosing a Pokemon trainer club account instead of a google account, so it does have some problems staying logged in or even if you switch between accounts you have to close the app so it allows you to log back into the trainer account. I just wish they would have it so you could connect a trainer account with a google mail, so this would not be an issue. It's a little overdue since a lot of people do want to switch Full Review
Suzy Published date: February 20, 2018
I love pokemon go and always get pulled back into playing it. I'm still getting use to the updates after not playing for a while and am disapointed in the gyms. While I love being able to use them like pokestops, I wish to recall my pokeon from the gym. I love I a rural area and my poor Vaporeon has been at a gym for 13 days. THIRTEEN. I want my pokemon to come back please. Full Review
Ccmarie 73 Published date: February 17, 2018
Can you please make it so that some Pokemon spon even if you dont go out, I wanna play from home but no Pokemon ever spon . Also can you make it so we can earn coins. I can't buy coins but I want to have a chance to earn coins so I can buy things to use. Thanks I love the game though it's awesome! Full Review
Rosemarie Khan Published date: February 19, 2018
I used to love this game. I hate the way you can only raid a gym in a group to win the best Pokemon. I do a job where my hrs are different from other ppls. So I am not available to do raids with others. Also I think it would be brilliant if you had a swapping system with other players so it could at least open up the opportunity to gain some of the rarer Pokemon, if you aren't able to get to raids or travel. I live in a rural area and don't drive so it is difficult to get to other areas..... Full Review
Ben Arneault Published date: February 15, 2018
Its getting better. Haven't done raids yet, but hopefully the EX Pass business is fixed soon. Would like to see more Pokestops in rural areas. Arlington has plenty scattered around but anywhere outside in a suburb is a ghost town. Also with more legendary PokÃ©mon, maybe add some extra teams or the ability to switch. (Kinda getting tired of Mythic) Full Review
Published date: February 17, 2018
I would give 5 stars but my account got lost and I can't figure out how to get it back. Also, when trying to contact Niantic you aren't able to leave an email. Their troubleshooting doesn't work. This game needs a Sign on screen that actually works so you can pull your account up instead of it starting you all over. I spent a lot of money on my previous account because I like the game. I will not spend a dime on this account to have it lost again Full Review
Brett Olsen Published date: February 19, 2018
Not accessible to all players, especially outside of cities. Inconvenient gameplay because of raids and raid times. Unbalanced Pokemon and no IV modifiers. No trading and no PvP. Itd be better if the game didn't dictate where I needed to go to play it. I just want to go for a walk, find Pokemon and items both at random chance then return home with my haul. Full Review
Published date: February 20, 2018
The tutorial doesn't seem to work. I kept tapping everywhere on the screen and nothing happened. I could only rotate. Also even though my GPS is on, the app still tells me it can't find it (yes I also gave the app permission to access my GPS). I am kind of disappointed with this app :/ Full Review
Seana Dykes Published date: February 17, 2018
Recently it's gone terrible with how many poke balls you need to catch any pokemon. I just used 100+ on ten pokemon six of which ran away! Totally not fair. It's not easy to get many poke balls anymore, really feel like giving this game up. Full Review
Alban Durgaj Published date: February 21, 2018
I have been waiting a long time for this game and it turned to be shity there are server issues , glitches , battles lagging out , sometime the gym pokemons are invincible they stay at 1hp without dying AND the battles , literally the worst battles in Pokemon games history. the battles were supposed to be strategic and not just spamming the screen... catching pokemons use to be cool , but now you just "find and catch"... is awefole , the idea of the game was awesome but how it turned to be... AWEFOLE Full Review
Francesco Gazza Published date: February 19, 2018
The game is good for the most part and there's lots of fun easter eggs but with gps spoofers and the fact that you're forced to join in with people to battle high level raids really fails the game play. All I want is a sliding scale of difficulty with raids so that players who want to get a legendary battle going without having to be forced to deal with people can still contend to catch a legendary. I've all but given up raids all together because of this issue. I want to play MY game not play with everyone else, is that so much to ask? Full Review
Chris Ratcliffe Published date: February 18, 2018
Great game really but word of warning.... do not invest too much into it you will be disappointed. There are so many bugs glitches and errors in this game its beyond belief. But as long as people keep spending money devs dont care. Full Review
Killa Slayer Published date: February 20, 2018
It's a great game and I wanted to go back and play it but it won't let me sign in with Google. How dumb. Until sign in issues are fixed I'll leave this at 3 stars, there's always server and sign in problems it's frustrating. Full Review
Gaming Production's Published date: February 15, 2018
It's a very awesome game I play it just about every day, evening, or night. Except for one problem, the battery on my phone was at 86% before playing for 10 min., then when I went to check it after that 10 min. it was at 15%... (I know that it was from the location), but fix that drainage battery problem ASAP! Thanks. Full Review
Avalon T Published date: February 18, 2018
Laaame why was this game even made it's nothing like real pokemon games, and for some reason randomely only has gen two? Also the avatars look super weird and the proffeser just looks like trash Full Review
Mohd Azizi Abd Rashid Published date: February 15, 2018
Recent gym update is most welcome but still no solution to spoofers and please fix defender bonus ratio. It's impossible to defend a gym in high traffic areas and lets not forget spoofers kicking defenders out of gyms. Getting just 1 coin after defending the gym for 1 hour is just ridiculous Full Review
Gavin Yates Published date: February 17, 2018
Would be 5 stars if was more like the actual game where you could battle friends and wild Pokemon. I wish there was an option to only show the original 151 too. I stopped playing once others were added Full Review
Jerald Jan Paz Published date: February 16, 2018
It is better than before.. but needs to have more pokestops or maybe some gyms in suburban areas. Im rooting for gen 4! And for an update where we can interact to other trainers for battles and maybe trades. Thanks Full Review
Elizabeth Sylvester Published date: February 16, 2018
Constantly saying GPS not found (11). She jumps to random places and takes forever to even move. Its basically useless.. I was going to get a new phone to play this thinking it would work better but even after the update it hasn't changed. Waste all my data trying to play. Not happy. Disappointed. Full Review
Mary Sor Published date: February 18, 2018
If there are 371 pokemon how come we can only catch 300? I hate that! I'll be uninstalling soon, getting closer to the 300 and won't be buying storage, pitty because i do love to play this game. Full Review
Tirthankar Das Published date: February 17, 2018
I am in level 29 and have registered 360 pokemon in my pokedex. I have been playing the game since 10/01/2017.The legendary pokemon are awesome. Only a few requests to Niantic.... 1. Please make MEWTWO raids more widespread around the world. 2.Please release MEW and CELEBI raids . Full Review
synchro593 Published date: February 21, 2018
I just spent the last hour typing out a review that the system seems to have deleted, so I'll just shorten it to the facts that: There is senseless region locking of good pokemon. You can't leave team members notes in gyms, so it's difficult to figure out who guards the same locations with you. The game will CONSTANTLY buffer when you throw pokeballs and waste your items. The game will not recognize where you are sometimes, preventing you from hitting pokestops or raiding. It will think you're spoofing when driving from work to home on a regular basis. You will drop out of raids and not be able to collect rewards. The group aspect and pokemon are fun though. Full Review
MadDuck RC Published date: February 20, 2018
Sorry guys, I haven't been into Pokemon in years. I went ahead and got this game since I do travel quite a bit, but I can't even battle my wife or friends? Really....this is the very best (get it) you guys can do. And spending money just to get to the top and still (once again) not be able to battle friends or near by trainers. This is more like the every first test version and the real game will come out on 6 years. I'll keep the game for now, but please update everything and let us battle each other Full Review
cody Johnson Published date: February 17, 2018
Lags when trying to catch a raid boss which leads many people to missing out on good mon.. You need to put a practice range in the game where people can go and throw at differwnt distances and heights .. The rayquaza is bullcrap.. So high that many can't even throw high enough to touch him most the time time Full Review
Cynice ice Published date: February 18, 2018
This game have so much potential to be honest, but I had to give you 3 star just because of the gps signal problem, everytime I walked into a building, or some places. My character didnt move and even the gps signal problem is gone. And also a glitch I at the gym, the pokemon are in one place and its kinda weird. Full Review
Aedrinnik 'NightOwl' Yaheg Published date: February 17, 2018
I like the game, I was a bit worried to get it when it came out at first, but after installing it and learning how it generally works I like it a lot. I would love to see more pokemon added and maybe even some PvP/ being able to challenge other people around you some day. So far it's been great, I'm not really sure why so many people have been so upset about it, but it's definitely a 5/5 for me so far. Full Review
Dennis Reinhard Published date: February 19, 2018
Hi Niantic. I have been playing since the beginning. I just did 2 rayquaza raids and got errors for those I made it to the catch screen with the creature got errors for catching it and untimely got errors out for the creature. Please fix these bugs. Thank you for your time and consideration Full Review
NeonShadow Published date: February 18, 2018
I hate the vehicle restriction. This game was really fun until the vehicle restrictions went into effect. Not only that but when I go next to a pokestop to collect the items, it won't give me the items and say try again. What good is a AR game of you really can't do anything. Full Review
GXninja Published date: February 17, 2018
When you released the "Team Rocket" outfit set I went to buy it with my coins and it freezes every time I go to buy the set or any other outfits I haven't bought. Also the GPS tracker is kinda off from the real world. All in all it is an awesome game. I'll give it 5/5 when I can buy the outfits again. ð Full Review
Taylor Bolar Published date: February 17, 2018
Way fun for people that have patients a lot of people just don't under stand that to be good at this game reveries a commitment you can't just barely play the game and expect to be really good. I really like the addictions of shinies that add a good challenge to the game... it took me 700 Magikarp to get a shiny oneð Full Review
Santiago Garabaya Published date: February 16, 2018
Game idea is good, implementation is not good at all. This game will drain your battery, overheat your device and consume all your mobile data; GPS accuracy is terrible, and the animations slow and cumbersome. TL;DR: it sucks Full Review
eric grant Published date: February 15, 2018
I wish that I could say I liked this game. I only play because I enjoy pokemon, thats it. The game is constantly crashing and gliching out, has little content for what they said would happen, and seems to be solely made to screw over players for cash. The best option is to just shell out some cash for a 3ds and play a real game rather than this garbage. Full Review
LostGlitch92 The Fallen Published date: February 19, 2018
Update: I just realized there is a small error in the pokedex entry. Volbeat has a 100% male ratio. So it shouldn't really have a female option. That is for Illumise. (I mean, take a look and the nidoqueen and nidoking line. Those two only have one gender option.) It is a fine game to play, if you want to waste time. Obviously, it is different from main pokemon game series. However, if you can't get the main series game(even through emulator), this is a alright game in my opinion to replace it. The raid boss is a pretty interesting concept and with the new wave of pokemons coming in, I would say the game has made progress for the better over the months. With raids, new generation of pokemons introduces and events. However, there are some bugs in the newest update(with some from the lld update getting fixed). For instances, I did not receive any pokecoins from the gym despite my pokemon being there for more than 8 hours. And even when it said my pokemon have return with pokecoins, the pokecoins were not added to my balance of pokecois. So there is that. Overall, the game is decent. Definitely better than it was before. However, there are many things it could improve on. So I am hoping for such improvements in the future. Full Review
Tammy Mierow Published date: February 17, 2018
Tried it...Loved It! It's a game I can enjoy with my 8 yr old. More addicting than I thought it'd be & I'm 48 yrs old. I love the part where you walk & get rewarded while you do it. It can be disappointing when eggs hatch and its a repeat monster but the candy you need to maximize it works itself out in the long run. Full Review
Published date: February 21, 2018
As a game in general, it's extremely fun and gets me out every weekend with friends. The game itself is riddled with little bugs and issues that still shouldn't be here despite the time and revenue from the game. Niantic needs to be more competent and sort out the small but vast issues. If you're looking for an excuse to go outdoors and explore a little, this is perfect, as long as you can handle a few gameplay quirks. Full Review
