Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Pikachu, and many other Pokémon have been discovered on planet Earth!
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.

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!

    Old versions and this version work “fine” on the Moto E LTE 2nd gen (which isn’t supported because of the lack of RAM in the phone).

    • ARB

      Sure. But does the Moto E LTE 2nd gen work at all without root and rom? Mine was practically useless, considering apps killed themselves randomly, so even reading webpages was impossible, and the phone would randomly reboot every few hours anyhow, especially at inopportune times. After trying many things, including a dozen or more factory resets and even rooting *without* flashing a new ROM, the only thing that made this otherwise-useless hunk of glass, plastic and metal operate reasonably well was rooting *and* installing Cyanogenmod, after which all such issues have been resolved.

  • Rüdiger Regens

    It works on CynanogenMod if you do it like this:
    1: Activate Root
    2: Download ES Datei Explorer
    3: Activate Root Explore in the App
    4: Delte the following files:
    – System/bin/su <- delete the su file
    – System/xbin/su
    Now you can deactivate Root rights in the Settings and Pokemon GO should work. If you want root back update Cynanogen Mod to a newer Version (or older).
    Make sure you create a backup before you try my Methode.
    I tried to rename the files at first but it doesnt work for me.
    Sry for my bad english, Im from Germany. Hope it will work for you too :)

  • S3B

    Does anybody know when this update is actually going to be realised by niantic WITHOUT having to download an apk seems like a lot of people are having problems and I don’t get the whole rooted not rooted thing. I have an iPhone I don’t even understand android. I just know it’s not fair that android users can download an app and get an update that’s not been fully released yet 🤔

    • Idamo

      It has been released in the google play store so we dont have to download an apk

      • S3B

        I figured out why I didn’t have it I’m stubborn and don’t update my iPhone once I had updated it it was automatically there 🍰👻

  • Jefferson Orjuela

Segundo. A pesar de que soy android 4.3 igual podia suir jugando las anteriores versiones por que utilizaba la app apk editor pro para que mi android lo pudiera leer! Y asi funcionaba bien hasta esta actualizacion!.. alguien puede tener alguna idea del por que no me funciona?..

    I have an M2Aqua Xepria updated to v39.1 and it does not let me log in i gather that my device is not rooted however… I find by using my blackberry 9320’s (yes laugh all u want) as wifi hotspot as a tether with my wifi on (duh) an data off… I can log in easy… But alas because my blackberry is so ancient… The battery is run down so its basicly like my designated corded house phone now… So i cant really go on pokewalks either… Well at least only for 20 mins before the battery dies out. If you have another device you can tether to whilst on ur person then mayb this offers a solution… Btw your tether devices has to have data on ofcorse.
