I love the game, I've been playing it since launch day and I've spent plenty of money to support you guys. But for the past month or two, any time i close out of the app on my Note 5 and try to open it at a later point, the game freezes. There is no work around for it; I have to completely clear the game data and cache, force close the app, and log back in every time I want to play. I went online to report the issue over 2 weeks ago and nothing has changed. I'll change my review when the game is playable.
The game is great, the new pokemons are great ... but after the last update the game began to load and refresh when moving around ... really, i tell you REALLY slowly on my G3. Today i had to wait abouth 5 minutes on a pokestop and it did not refresh till the moment I restarted the game to refresh and let me catch a pokemon!!! And one more tiny little thingie now i have to bring with myself a bag of ice or somethin equally cold. Because if not, my phone turns off thanks to the high temprature!!!
UPDATE - Currently having issues with new update. Battery Saver no longer works. Pokemon nearby list and Pokemon spawns randomly disappear and take a while to load. Hopefully a fix is in the works. This game has brought my childhood dreams to life and I thank you for it. I have had a blast already and hope that the game keeps expanding and improving over the years. Can't wait to catch 'em all! *Would love to see the balance of the Pokemon in the game improved and am very keen for trading to be implemented* Keep up the good work.
Can't log in with recent update. I was literally playing the game daily, I have dogs and often go walking with them while playing. Buddy should appear on the map while walking, trading options and friendly battles near you should be implemented to level up Pokémon instead of stardust. I have no problem not knowing when Pokémon will appear where, luck of the draw makes it more appealing but knowing if you're getting closer better would be great.
This game is great. I just wish it worked a little bit more like the original Pokémon games. Like, when you encounter wild Pokémon, you have to battle them. And also, there should be battling between users, as well as trading Pokémon and items. There also should be evolution items such as stones (like Water and Fire Stones) in which to evolve any Pokémon with a corresponding type. Also items like Rare Candy to boost CP. Lastly, I wish there were some way of getting the AR camera to work with any device, because it doesn't work on mine. Overall an amazing game though.
UPDATED REVIEW THE LATEST UPDATE IS MAKING THE GAME SO SLOW TO LOAD. ONCE IN THE GAME ITS EVEN LONGER FOR IT TO SYNC POKEMON TO YOUR GPS LOCATION. PLWASE FIX THIS ISSUE. Previous review. I love the app. The game is fun and it's great to pop in and out of throughout the day..... but I live in a suburban area and am far away from Pokestops. I have to travel to the local town which isn't always possible. Increase Pokestops for rural and suburban areas and it will make the game better for all. Also take off the speed cap for Pokestops as my children now cannot claim pokestops in the car when they are passengers. Which has impacted their enjoyment of the game.
- The 7-day ‘First PokéStop of the Day’ streak will now award a random Evolution item.
- Minor text fixes.
