Where is pokémon trading??? It is essential and was already in trailer, the functionality is not there even after 2 years! Why is there not possibility of duelling - it's one of foundations in pokémon world - to be able to challenge any trainer! Why do we need to cooperate with that many players to get a legendary pokemon? Impossible for people living in cities under 100k population. Create more likely some chasing of these pokemons between pokestops around cca 3km radius.
In its current state the game is just okay, after some very controversial changes that were made. Thankfully niantic has finally addressed the public regarding the 3 step bug. They also said that the game is only 10% of what they want it to be so it's just a matter of time before it gets really good.
I am in level 26 and have registered 243 pokemon in my pokedex. I have been playing the game since 10/01/2017.The legendary pokemon are awesome. I have caught RAIKOU , SUICUNE , ENTEI , ARTICUNO , ZAPDOS , MOLTRES and LUGIA. Only a few requests to Niantic.... 1. Please make MEWTWO raids more widespread around the world. 2.Please release MEW, HO-OH and CELEBI raids , I am a great fan of HO-OH. THANKS TO NIANTIC FOR RELEASING GEN 3 IN POKEMON GO
As far as I am concerned, radars and maps (the things that Niantic doesn't want) make the game more fun. The ability to see where Pokémon are gives everyone a chance to raise there animals the best they can. Gym leaders with 3000+ cp Dragonites could have better competition if other people were able to find something worth while. I live in a rural area where Pidgeys and Ratattas are the best I can get. Yes, I can go to a "nearby" city...but it's not like I can use the map to find a Blastoise and drive.
The game is working well enough, although Niantic really needs to sort out the MewTwo raids. People need a fighting chance at getting an ex raid pass rather than it being dumb luck. Also more ways to obtain stardust (especially at higher levels) would make the game much more enjoyable.
Coin system is 1 coin per 10 minutes of your Pokemon being on a gym. 50 coins max in a day. Read the notes! Saying youre a rural player doesnt really matter, the idea is to get out of your subdivision and walk/bike around. The game is great, my wife, child and I go for walks every night and catch Pokemons. I just wish a One Time Team Change would be implemented as I chose a different team then my friends at the start.
