There have been a few times where I’ve been in a very large raid group (10-20 people) and a few of us will get kicked out in the middle of the battle and we won’t be allowed back in (even when there’s time left on the clock) to catch the Pokemon. There have been times where after this glitch happens, I will still have my raid pass, but all of my Pokemon will be injured or knocked out. There are also times where I have lost my raid pass in this glitch and it causes me to have to buy another one on the spot. It’s very frustrating and embarrassing to commute far out to meet up with a raid group, only to have the game glitch out on me. I’ve been playing this game since the day it came out and glitches like this cause me to get very discouraged and flustered. That being said, I love this game so much; it truly makes my long walk into work better and more fun, AND it encourages me to go out for walks during my lunch break. I would say that it has been a very positive influence on my life and some of my friends lives. It makes my day more exciting, and it helps me feel a level of nostalgia considering I played all of the Pokemon games growing up. I hope this game is up and running forever, I just wish that some of the gym issues would get cleaned up a bit :)
This is a wonderful game, great to get people out and moving I definitely recommend it for people who live in populated areas and towns BUT if you live in the rural areas and the country sides of this country where service is spotty and where they placed most all the stops and gyms there is NO SERVICE then playing this game is almost worthless. As a player moving from the city to the country it almost leaves me no choice but to quit or almost forget about the game, sad because I’m a paying player. I read how Niantic was working hard at trying to come up with a resolution for RURAL players but every update and addition to the game benefits populated players. Even trying to contact help support and Niantic is a waste of time, all you will get is a return email where someone will just copy and paste the same answers over and over again, if you cared to do something about this critical issue then maybe taking a moment and conversing with the rural players may help. I hate to have to leave this game but Niantic does not seem to care if they lose their rural players and that is so sad as if you maybe took the time to work with rural players the issue could be resolved, I say to the populated players get out and have an awesome time playing this game and don’t complain about adding a couple bucks to the game it is a lot cheaper then a night out to the movies and a lot more fun with the family! Signed The forgotten rural players!
I love all of the new editions to the game. I love that it finally FEELS like pokemon. The problem is that it’s far too late. The fact that you guys were so eager to release this game before it was finished, before you had the server capacity (that’s not totally your fault though this game initially blew up more than anyone could have thought), there was no features to battle, interact with friends, no raids or gym battles, the radar had constant problems, you guys wouldn’t allow anyone to use radars because your guys’ app kind of sucked at the time. You guys just handled this game extremely poorly during the initial first 6 months. Instead of releasing the game unfinished to make money, why didn’t you at least add features that would have made it fun to play with friends? Yes the raids were a great edition, but the new problem is that there are so many players that quit that I can never catch any legendaries because none of my friends and no people are out actively playing the game anymore. This game would have actually been fun to play and probably would have kept more players if it even had just some of the features that it does now. But because it doesn’t, it’s simply too difficult to do some of the really awesome things unless you have a dedicated group of like 15 people who will go out together and do raids. And I don’t know anyone who does. Nice try niantic, hopefully the Harry Potter game is better handled.
I’m not even going to lie, I’m 27 and absolutely love this game. I grew up with Pokémon and this is by far the best Pokémon game. I stopped playing for a year or so because I reached the top level and got bored with it; about 6 months ago my husband convinced me to redownload it because of the numerous new features and two more generations of Pokémon that had been added to the game. Unfortunately as of lately I’ve been having nothing but problems with getting it to load. This is now the third time in a week that I’ve had to uninstall and reinstall the game and unfortunately this time it doesn’t appear to even be reinstalling. And yes the app and phone software are all up to date and everything like that. On top of that, on my other phone, if/when the game loads it no longer loads all of the way. It’s genuinely one of the most frustrating things I’ve been dealing with because playing this game keeps me out of trouble and out of my own head. It’s definitely become my biggest hobby and biggest outlet, so when I’m stressed out to the max and it doesn’t want to load - which seems to be every single time I’m excessively stressed lately- it just makes everything worse. I was praying that these last batch of updates they did would have fixed that but I haven’t even been able to get the game to load since it updated! That is literally the only downside to it and unfortunately it’s a major one.
I got through the bad things about this app (Making an account took forever and I got stuck on loading) I have enjoyed the good stuff. I am on a roadtrip and as such I have been able to sit down, relax, then get exercising because the game has plenty of Poké Stops in cities, suburban areas have schools as Poké Stops sometimes, and basically, as long as you are near a Poké Stop you can enjoy this app to the fullest. Partly Cloudy weather has lead to me being able to catch so many different Pokémon and within a few minutes of playing I caught an Eevee and I love my Water Pokemon that I caught so far (Water is my favorite type) and I have enjoyed being able to play this game that has encouraged me to Pokémon GO outside and get exercise! At first the app seems blank, sure, but then you walk around and find a group of Plusle, Minun, Geodude, and so many more. And thankfully catching one doesn’t scare all the others away. I haven’t caught Pikachu, one of my favorite Pokémon, but on this road-trip I feel like I am destined to find one. I don’t care if I have to walk around the campground until 10:00 At Night. I will do what all my years of playing Pokémon has taught me. I will tell myself this everytime I feel tired and there is a nearby Poké Stop. Gotta Catch ‘em All! But seriously. Don’t put yourself in danger playing this app. Even if that shiny Magikarp (The King of Carp!) is right there. Don’t drown for it.
