I used the raid feature for the first time recently. I was able to raid remotely twice and get a raid Pokemon I wouldn't have been able to get otherwise. This app I believe it's a must-have for any Pokemon go user. The overlay works quite reliably most of the time. The overlay does randomly stopped working every now and then. Overall this app is great

I want to use this app for raids but im running into the issue that every time i go to add user on pokemongo and come back to click on sent request the app freezes and then tells me it timed out. Then made me wait 25 minutes to try again and got the same result.

App is awesome and extremely easy to use. I had an issue with the overlay function not appearing on Go, however less than 12 hours later I had an email instructing me on how to fix it (disable priority mode for Game Booster). Also, something that doesn't happen with apps today, THERE ARE NO ANNOYING POPUP ADS!

Looks like it has potential but app just crashes my s7 every time I try and use it. I would say it's a overlay or screen filter issue but it's not... support is little to none, no troubleshooting info or any possible solutions aside from the two I mentioned earlier. EDIT: eventually the patch to solve the crashing issue was released and runs very smoothly now. Overall a useful app but one of those situations where you have a lot of good information to the point it's a little overwhelming.

If your host times out, you can rejoin at the front of the queue, this is good. However, if your host invites you to a raid that already has the max# of remote players (10), you're screwed and have to get back in line. Extremely frustrating when you've waited 3 hours and the line is now 28k+ deep. This has happened multiple times now. Maybe add a reminder in the Hosting Guidelines that a raid can only have a max of 10 remote raiders, so be careful having multiple hosts for the same raid....

Very good app. Great way to connect with other people to help with your local raids as well as to get more raids when you can't go out. Im in a rural area and toss is perfect for what I need. As a bonus it also helps get a bunch of new friends in the game

Wish the vision wasn't behind the paywall. The battle aspect makes sense, but it definitely feels like like they're making you do things the hard way.

Edit: Screen shot mode requires the overlay which seems pointless to me. This should be made more clear in the app itself. The iOS version is a much better version of the app, oh well.

Constantly freezes up and shuts down. When it freezes up it freezes up Pokemon Go & shuts it down also. EDIT: the new update just made the problem even worse.

The raid coordination feature is literally a game changer. I went from getting MAYBE one out of a set of legendaries to getting the entire set for the region over night. The IV scanner is...odd? Not sure what I'm doing wrong with it, but it'll say something's evolved form is good for a certain league and then after evolving it that rating drops like 50%.

Sometimes switches between Google accounts making you reset your Pokemon "friend code", username, and level... Otherwise, not too many issues. If you downloaded the app much later into game play you have to manually enter all of your Pokemon. Haven't figured out how to host a Raid YET! Great concept though, LOVE that it's FREE. Honestly a well rounded app/tool for anything from Raids to general stats and PvP! Highly useful especially when you've hit your max in bag pokemon and need a clean up!

Due to recent updates from niantic, the need for people to stay in a raid lobby is now more important. I feel the need to punish users who do this that uses this app, like a month long ban from using this app for ditching your team... Idk what implementation is needed for that but this is just a suggestion. My review is staying at 4 stars until something is done about this. Edit: Certainly doesn't feel like it considering how quick every single participant, on one of my raids, left, except one.

Best app for joining raids!! Also very great for everything else PoGo related!! Very easy to use, and easy to learn how to utilize all the different tools too! Couldn't ask for more!! I would definitely recommend this app to any PoGo player.

Awesome to use. Lets me no all those hidden stats almost instantly. Wish it was faster but only takes a few seconds to scan a pokemon and give results. It's automatic so super easy and has so much info I'm still trying to learn what everything means. Only been into pokemon for about a year now but this will help tremendously for me and any other new users.

Update: May 20, 2022 We are daily players and LOVE ❤ Poke Genie!! Use it to appraise 2 🌟 🌟. There are Pokémon worth keeping. Poke Genie statistics have taught us new layers of game play. My victory in raid and battle has exploded. Thank you, #PokeGenie Efficiently maximizes the fun of playing. Thank you! Recommended by a PokéGo Community member. Easy.

The new update made it worse for me the overlay won't stay on long enough to scan one pokemon .My phone is galaxy a 10e .The overlay is shutting down on me constantly. I tried over 30 minutes during raid hour to get the raid overlay to see a raid but the overlay disappears before i can get into the raid,

Using this app for raids is as easy as it sounds. All the necessary info is copied automatically to make the process quicker and easier.

I've used this app for years. I loved it so much, I paid for the upgraded version some time ago. Super simple to use for IV checks on Pokémon GO. The only draw back I can think of is that it is quite the battery hog, or at least it used to be. So I only use it for short times and not throughout event times or for all day play.

The interface is a little basic and clunky, reminds me of surfing forums in the late 90's. But the services are pretty cool. The PvP IV rating system is actually kind of legit, I've done a bit better since I started following it. My favorite part is pairing up for remote raids, the closest gyms to my house are a 20 minute drive away. Would totally recommend using it.

This app is a game changer!! I never had any raid I could win above a 2 or 3 🌟 star bc I couldn't ever get my friends together at the same time! But with Poke Genie it's literally opened up so many opportunities for legendary and extremely strong 'Mon that I couldn't even think of getting before!! 5/5 🌟 thanks so much guys!

i love this app. the paste IV/level feature rocks. also love using the battle simulator. Update: I've been using it for over a year now and wanted to update my review. I love all the changes that they've done when it comes to raiding and keeping track of damage capabilities and damage to raids.

Great app, very useful features like name generator etc. Now with remote raids its even better for me, especially as I'm usually only available to raid late at night/early hours of morning so great for catching overseas raids and allows me to enjoy the game more. I have used it for over a year now and have had no issues although a simple way to scan all of your pokemon in one go would be great but other than that I love it, thanks 😊 🙏

It is a highly convenient way of quick scanning pokemons on the fly. It is intuitive and easy to personalize up to your needs. I strongly recommend beginners to learn the settings of the "scan tool". Single tick can show 2 different results. Thank you very much for a great app!

Absolutely required for higher play! (or if your lazy and don't have friends) Ended up paying for all the features because I hope this app improves not because they are necessary. If you can't seem to win raids or always have to solo, need an automatic IV calculator (besides the built in one) with pokemon and move Rankings PLEASE get this.

Is somewhat functional except for the fact that you'll wait an hour in queue for a raid, only to be unfriended by the host and not sent the raid invitation. Did I mention you can't leave the app for too long or else you lose your spot in queue? Absolutely terrible, and there's no way to rectify this because the host can just say they sent you the invitation, and you won't be placed in the re-queue. Absolute joke of an app.

Have some compatibility issues switching between apps and folding and unfolding my fold 3 as some of the boxes sizes are incorrect untill restarting the app. Other than minor inconveniences ordinary with having a weird phone with multiple sizes, amazing and way easier to use than pokeraider! Would love an option for 10 raid invites like pokeraider does as it's insanely easy to do and would be great for the 6 star raids out.

Used to be great for matching, but they've relaxed the rules to allow people to max in megas. Now I get matched with absolute garbage people and lose my raid passes. Literally says damage verification required but I join lobbies where I'm the only one verified.

Absolutely changes the way I play Pokémon Go. Very useful app. I do wish they had a way to customize how many people you're trying to recruit instead of having to do 5 every time. Sometimes I have friends interested in helping and don't need 5.

Its an amazeing GO! Companion app, it has everything from a way to get remote invites for any current raids, an IV calculator that not only tells you the general IV but the PVP IV in the league, a move list to find out the best moves for raids and PVP and a level up calculator so you can find out excactly what your pokemon will level up or evolve into. If I could give it ten stars I would. Must have for any serious GO! Player.

Decent and very helpful app when it works. Have quite a few issues with scanning not working. Issues with having phone set on dark mode. As well as after recent phone update the scanning feature refusing to work. Phone: Xiaomi Mi 11 Other than that works very well. Raids are very easy to join and host. Would like to see an option to host 10 man raids as I haven't seen that yet?

Very good useful app, raid feature needs to be touched up. People lying about there account lvl to get into mega raids then messing up the lobby. Every time I tried to host I had this issue and I keep getting banned from hosting but I'm trying to report the bad accounts and I wont do a raid if the other people lied and it's a definite loss. Last time i tried for latios i had 3 lvl 20's. And I got banned from that! I even reported 2 out of 3 people. Super frustrating

So I've been using this app basically since its been out, however I'm super confused about the battle points 🥺 when I go into my profile, it says 0/500 & won't let me join anymore. Yet last night I battled Latias 3x only 1 group I was able to catch one. The other 2x people backed out last minute. & I lost my raid passes. Could someone help explain the whole points thing to me, sometimes my dyslexia & adhd gets the better of me & I might be reading how to obtain them wrong. 😅 thx you guys 🤘

Inproves the Quality of the main game by alot. With the advent of legendary mega raid i would love to be able to double host (host with two accounts at the same time). This would make these raids more consistently Achievable. I tried hosting with two phones simultaneously and I'm getting different que times, making it harder.

Everything u need while playing PokeGo! ...well...there is only 1 thing I could ask from this app & that's PvP species rankings. But that's literally all it's missing. ANY other info u could want can be found with this app without leaving the PokeGo screen & it's FREE!!! No joke I run this app 24/7 because I play PokeGo so often. It's become a NECESSITY for choosing which poke to keep, evo, power up, change move set, etc. I used to use 3 websites for the info this one app provides.

Had to sign into a different google account to get into the right one, randomly chose the wrong one. But got an option after signing in and out. For the 6* raids, it is a bit too tight with the lax verfication and requirements. Had to uninstall the app to get premium back, good by pokemon data. (The data was out of date anyway) Great tool to use, only thing I would love is auto start. But my phone requires the accept to cast this screen, so don't think there's a way around this.

I had a few problems with the app, but it really is an amazing tool for the community, and the developer is obviously passionate about providing a solid product. I have had a few issues with trying to verify a team, and have had a few issues double-hosting lately, but neither were anything wrong with the app; the former is entirely user error, and the latter is something the app is not specifically designed to do.

Works great. Sometimes it cannot read the stats of Pokémon with tags for some reason. It also usually struggles with slowpoke and grimer. I bought the paid version. Be aware the app will not work if you have a blue light filter on.

This app is a MUST HAVE for Pokemon Go if you want to keep the highest stat pokemons. Even if you aren't really into PVP or PVE, it is very helpful for completing the quests that the professor gives. Their recent update included some things I would've suggested for improvements like "IV Naming Only"
Patrick McGarvey

Paid IV vision is a little slow. However, was happy to just support the app. Great stuff and always manages to keep itself relevant.

I normally dont submit app reviews but, HAD to for this specific application. I dont like this app.... I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. Helps a tremendous amount, in regards to not only adding new friends but also helps a great deal for raids, i.e specifically when searching for the best counters and weaknesses against said Pokemon

Good for seeing stats but beware of overlay!! It screen records EVERYTHING. So make sure you turn it off before loggining into personal data files!! It doesn't remind you its on so you have to do it manually.

I was not able to record a video of the "Tally" ad b/c it was so spontaneous as to when it would advertise. I was not the only person experiencing this problem. My b/f runs Poke genie as well, & had the same thing happen to him. This only happened while playing with Poke genie. We uninstall, & then reinstalled the app. Thus far, we have not had this problem again. We absolutely love Poke Genie, & hope it continues to be awesome. Thank you for your time.

best PoGO companion app i've ever used, only issue is that it shows a very large range for IV stats sometimes and could maybe have a reminder to close it when you close the game. so needs a little work, it's pretty good but could be even greater.
Ashley Clouse
Apr 29, 2022
*EDIT* Yes whatever you did fixed the problem and its working very well again, thank you. Was really good for awhile, and helpful. Now I don't know what's going on with it, I can't join any raids it keeps lagging and locking up. Unfortunately I have had to Uninstall it at this point because it's useless.

Super easy to score IV, get type, and rate and rename Pokemon to show the info I need (overall IV, type, moveset). I don't use it to build battle teams. I use it to score pokes and get their moveset to the best for offense and/or defense.

Great app! Saves a ton of time. I recommend the premium version for PvP players. The amount of time it saves more than pays for itself IMO. Didn't test the Battle Premium yet, but the Raids feature is free and extremely efficient. Poke Genie deserves its name for that genius feature alone!
Dylan Henderson

I don't have a lot of time to go out and do raids, and I don't have freinds who can regularly do them with me, so I have a hard time adding legendaries to my Pokedex. This app makes this task more manageable, and because of that, it gets 5 stars.
Elizabeth Shuster
Apr 25, 2022
This app is really helpful, even though it crashes often times and I have to restart the app, then that means I have to restart my Pokemon Go app again which is a pain. Other than that, the app does it's job pretty well.
Lucy McCormack

Very useful app, combines both ability to join raids internationally as well as host them yourself, and the ability to fully assess your pokemon for IV,CP etc, but also show how to refine your pokemons move set to be the most effective.

ETA: I'm still having the trouble. It's very frustrating and I don't know how to fix it. Please help. ETA: Delete and reinstall send to have fixed it, thank you so much. Now I'm back to catching everything. *** I love using this app and happily paid for the full version a year ago. But today it's insisting that my "trial period" has run out and when I touch 'restore purchase', it says it can't. Please fix this so I can go back to using the app that I've paid for?

Great app for overlaying pokemon go and getting instant stats. Sometimes it's a little buggy, but overall it's an excellent tool. It's also good for joining raids over in Europe and elsewhere when you can't find one locally.

This apps is so helpful in keeping my inventory of Pokemon lower and cleaner as well as knowing who to evolve, upgrade and use in battles. My only wants are things that are not currently allowed (more automation, more space in the nickname).

Apr 20, 2022
Awesome app for the most part everyone is good about joining and actually participating in the raids. Once in a while people will drop out of the raid but it's part of life can't always be there for reasons I get it but you cab just joking right back in. I think the timer is pretty long I mean if they don't add you as a friend with in like the first minute then it's safe to assume they won't join. Wish there was a kick button but it is what it is.

I'm not sure how to edit my earlier review, when I tried it brought me to a new one so I hope this will remove it. Removing the battery saver and eye shield on my phone seems to have taken care of the issue. I do wish this wasn't necessary as it runs my battery a lot faster, but at least it works again.

The app is close to being amazing but it's absolute trash. All of the features that would be most important and easily doable it doesn't have. I can't even see the best moveset for a pokemon.

A little hard to get used to at first, remembering to switch apps to confirm group actions. However it works great and the updates are regular with new features. All in all, a great companion for pokémon go
Nathan Little

It is a good app, however I purchased... EDIT*** I figured out what was wrong. I have multiple Google accounts for... home, work and my kids ect...for some reason the app stopped using my Google account and jumped to my daughter's account. I had to delete all other accounts until my original was left just to get it right. I then loaded the other accounts back and it's working fine now.
Amy Sarchet
Apr 9, 2022
I like the idea of what the app does a lot. What I don't like is that it doesn't always work right and it bogs down my phone so the actual game lags when I run it. 4/9/22 So I still.use the app and have 5g and a better phone. So no issues there but now it won't allow me to restore my past purchases.

No complaints, just joined, did 3 successful raids out of 4, the one failure raid was at no ones fault, I simply just wasn't able to join for whatever reason, had nothing to do with the app and something to do with Pokemon Go. I like the IV scanner, was a little confusing, but after a few minutes I figured it out, it is very useful. Huge thumbs up to the developers on this app.

Great app, but ... why!! New verifications to raid are ridiculous. I can't raid with a 40.9% damage contribution when 20% is required. The search strings are hokey, but what really bothers me is the app description says "Relying only on screenshot/screen recording and requiring no logins", but the to verify says it needs access to photos, files and storage. Can't reply to comment: I login, have purchased a great app, but all my pokemon are scanned, why do I need an additional saved snapshots when relying "only on screenshot/screen recording" is the stated rqmt?

Apr 5, 2022
I overall love this app! It's helped me learn and have an eye for what IVs are great to hold on to just at a glance, but it's still useful to have when unsure. The raids are nice too! I do wish there was an autoscroll feature that came with the purchase of IV Vision. Just so I didn't have to manually scroll after every scan! IV Vision 'does' just stop working on me as well sometimes, but it's just a quick stop and start in notifs tab/bar to fix!

I love the app, it is super useful. The reason for taking off a star is that I feel nervous every time I use it. I am afraid I will forget to close it. The app uses overlay and screen caps to do what it does, so it isn't very secure, and it warns users about this. If there was a setting to close the app when I close Pokémon, or some kind of reminder that Poke Genie is open if Pokémon app isn't my focus, that would help or make the orange dot overlay switch to a different color to remind me.

Was pretty good at first other than long wait times. Lately I haven't been getting raid invitations after HOURS of waiting to get in a raid. Pretty discouraging. Update: 4/4/22 - Now I wait hours to get a message that says "room doesn't exist". As for the developer comment, "check didn't receive an invitation", that's what I do but there seems to be no plausible fix to it. This latest issue about a room not existing is just crazy. People are investing so much time for absolutely nothing.

For some reason my iVision overlay button will sometimes not go away at all, and going into the app and removing then starting it up again only creates a second button. I've tried everything to get rid of it, but the only solution I've found that fixes it is completely restarting my phone

So helpful for playing Pokemon Go! It helps you understand the best movesets and whether a mon is worth keeping or not. Allows you to set up battle simulations, and join raids that are all around the world. It has a ton of features and I haven't even used half of them but I still love it!

App is damaged or broken, every time I start overlay it takes me into pokemon go. Then I'll go to my Pokemon click on poke genie to get a reading and it shuts the app down. I've deleted and reinstalled multiple times but does same thing every time. Plz fix thanks

Apps alright for IV and pvp stuff. If you want this for raids though, turn on Bluetooth set up some massive speakers for that notification when there's a popular raid going on. Missed several 3k queues today and plenty more other days because the notification is super quiet.

Mar 29, 2022
Great app super useful doesn't ask anything from you and you never have to worry about missing out on raids you might not have friends on for or not in your country best thing I use for Pokemon. There's also a thing for PvP but I'm not good at it so I can't say how good it is but it seems really useful there's a global rating system that lets you know where your specific Pokemon stands compared to everyone else's that has been scanned.

(2/22/22) Great app. Update (3/26/22): I have been using the app for a month now. I really like the ui, versus other pokemon raid app. There are guides gallore. Everything is clean and organize. The new feature with the ranking is a bonus. I hope there will be more incentive added soon for users that have a higher ranking. I ran into a little problem after the update, messaged the developer and received a response and solution very quickly. Worth the money to upgrade.

Awesome way to raid. I don't have many real world friends that play Pokemon Go, but this app let's me organize with players across the world to get raids done. It is genuinely free, with non-essential upgrades available to purchase. Which I highly recommend since they are only a few dollars for one time purchases to help the developers and remove the noninvasive banner ads
Aaron Singer
Mar 27, 2022
The app works well, and I enjoy the upgraded features and appreciate that it is a single payment rather than a subscription. It is a great resource for supplimental information without the need of exiting the app, the only thing I might need to leave the app to check is pvp tier lists. Works quick and has good pokemon recognition.

Great app. It's very easy to understand and use. It's interplay with Pokemon go is effortless and straightforward. The fact your guaranteed to get into a raid is stress free, along with other features to go along with Pokemon go this app almost gas it all. I hope they can add a auto spin feature for poke stops then it would be the perfect Pokemon app.

hi, I've used this app for hosting raids since October 2021, have successfully hosted over a hundred raids. The new update looked good but now it crashes my phone every time I switch apps. I do not have a top of the line phone and I'm probably just gonna uninstall
Chris Francisco
Mar 24, 2022
It's a great app, extremely useful for rating and sorting pokemon. The raid feature is great for getting raids all over the place and making raids more available to you. Very handy if you're rural or homebound. After last update hosting raids has been an issue for me. App keeps crashing after create lobby, in invite selection causing me to miss raid, and get negative feedback because no one else got to raid either. No idea what's causing this new hosting bug, but it drops my rating to 4/5.

Absolutely essential companion app for Pokemon Go! It's terrific for organizing and cataloguing your Pokemon and putting together the best parties for raids. And now you can simultaneously wait in long queues and still be able to do other things in the app, such as turn the overlay back on if it's off, etc. Love this app. Thank you for all the hard work, developers!

I think this is the best IV calculator app.of the ones that I have tried. Knowing a pokemon's stats/IV after catching it is important to me,because it gives me an idea of how the pokemon will perform in battle(combined w/the right moveset)& whether it is worth keeping or not..It used to be a pain to find/calculate IVs w/out an iv calc.app.,esp.b4 the appraisal system was changed..It's now gotten easier to appraise w/the app.+it's fast,accurate,& has new features to help u find remote raids!

Have been using app for few weeks but had no problems with it at all. Great app both for raids, and better understanding of how pogo works itself. Much help when choosing 'mons for raids and would reccomend for everyone, barely any information required, but good rating system for getting rid of cheaters and trolls (which i absolutely love) Also VERY easy to use, very neat

I would have quit playing PoGo if not for this app, but sometimes the app punishes you for things that aren't your fault. Like sending late notifications when you have perfect signal and a 5g connection. It's not my connection speed, and I can tell when it is the few times that happens.

The new verification feature is interesting, but broken as typical. Despite having the same team as in the string with no changes to cp or moves and having rescanned them multiple times, it still only shows one pokemon. After an hour I gave up trying to fix it. Thankfully this is optional. Despite that, it works for remote raids, which is the only thing I can say functions correctly almost every time.

Still no fix for Note 10+ on 12/4.0. Dev response resulted in no change. New features are cool wish I could use the app the way I used to before the Android 12 update (no changes to settings ony.phone besides this, so clearly a bug, not a setting)

Best thing that could of happened for Pokemon go. In all seriousness thank you for connecting everyone and making this game we love so much that much better. 5 star hands down every issue I've come across was addressed in a timely manner and fixed immediately. Keep up the amazing work. Looking forward Never backwards💪🏿

Paid for it, boyfriend didn't. I just startef so my level is an 11 even though I am plenty strong enough and have completed every raid. Now I don't get added to any because 11 is displayed and hosts won't add it. My boyfriend doesn't have a rating and though he would be lower he gets accepted. Now it's just a waste.

Love the new additions. Had pokegenie as a newbie on my iPhone. Helped to figure out game play better. Now as an experienced player it helps to better understand the more in depth aspects of the game. I rely more on it now to play than before. Highly recommended for any pokemon go player inexperienced or experienced. Definitely worth paying for to unlock advanced features for experienced players.

Absolutely love this app, I keep it running on overlay while I catch Pokemon to quickly see their stats and how they would do in battle leagues. Between this and the game itself, my battery goes quickly but that's to be expected. I have barely begun to use some of the features, but even the few I have are fantastic and very helpful! I also love the ability to join remote raids with other players around the world!

Used to be great... Just had to tap the little orange dot & got all the info I needed super fast. But now... I have to manually enter the CP, stardust, etc & it still doesn't give me a set percentage. I get a "22.7-99.9٪" and that tells me absolutely nothing. Hope this gets fixed because without this feature, I personally really don't need the app.

Absolutely love the app! I work from home so I don't really get much opportunity to travel around and see new Pokémon since I don't leave the house much so this app has helped so much with remote raids. I do, however, have an issue. I purchased the scan pro + remove ads a while ago and now it's saying I'm back on the trial. It fails to restore the purchase and if I try to buy it again it says I already own it. Reinstalling did not work and restarting my phone didn't either.

Works pretty good. It doesn't always give you a reading, but more than 96% of the time it does. The only complaint I have is I paid for the upgraded version of this app and I either didn't get it or there is no difference between the free version and the upgrade. Oh, and one more complaint. After scanning a pokemon there is a message saying a template has been created or something, that obstructs the view of pvp battle rating. It could be moved to a different location or disappear a lot quicker

Game changer: After just being a casual collector for a while when I was bored, this app has made the strategy part of the game come alive. I can't worry about all the old catches I threw out, but now going forward Im having fun looking at everything and seeing potential before I cut them loose. I had no reservations about getting the premium version given the amount of time they have spent working on this. The interface takes some getting used to but the stats are very detailed. I'm hooked.

It's a really great companion app that I have been using off and on for a couple years now. It's really a great tool that helps players stay organized and push their game. It's relatively simple to use and has a lot of great features. One of the only problems I have run into is after scanning several Pokemon in a row. Sometimes the screen will go black and the phone will still be on but you have to do a hard reboot to fix the issue. Other than that very small specific issue it's really great!

Pretty nice tool, but has had a major bug for awhile now. If my screen goes into "samsung game tools" "screen touch lock" after 30 seconds of inactivity, the queue counter continues to go down. However, it stops at a very low number, and only if I close and reopen the game does it show me actually in a lobby. Again though, after copying the friend code, adding, etc; I am unable to click the friend request sent button. I always have 1+ people that send f-request, but fail ready when I host.

Very good but needs to have improvement on the notifications. When I join a lobby for a raid, I have to keep looking at my phone or I might miss it. The notification to go back simply shows at the top. No vibration or sound. Double checked more than once to confirm I'm not crazy. Same issue on my friend's phone. Changed to a new phone and same issue there. Very frustrating issue. Also, if the host messes up, have to rejoin again and wait a long time AGAIN. Sucks when there are 10k in the lobby.

Fantastic and makes the game more fun since I don't have to sit there and do math and think too much when I just want to have fun. Only bad part is it occasionally crashes but otherwise fantastic. L2 use the red dot to recalibrate if there is an issue. Well worth just paying the very reasonable price for it.

I have had several instances of waiting in line for a raid, getting the notification that I was placed, clicking the notification a few seconds later, and then Pokie Genie would freeze on "Retrieving Queue Status" only for it to say "You have timed out." But like... I DIDN'T. I was there for 15 seconds. Very infuriating.

I've been using the addon for about 2 months now and I've decided to rate only 4 stars. As there is a single consistent issue based on an elongated que system. If I'm in the middle of an arena or an objective, waited 2 hours for a que, then lose it cause I can't just drop the activity, I lose my opportunity and possibly get a penalty. You need to elongate the friend request sent process. Alot of ppl are doing other things mid que. 45 seconds isn't enough if it pops at the start of an arena. Ty.

I really liked the app and after a few weeks of free use I purchased it. If I were to have rated then I would have given it 5 Stars. However, over the past few months when I queued for raids, often waiting hours because there are thousands already in line, when my turn comes up and I am notified that I have been placed I have been getting a "retrieving queue" message which inevitably leads to the "you timed out" message. Which means wasted time and another long line. Very frustrating.

I loved this app for the ease of use and minimal interruption. However, for the past couple months, it will not identify the gender of my pokemon. I never used to have this issue. I know it is a small thing, but since I collect one of every evolution, variation, and gender; this has become extremely frustrating. Please fix, and I will return my rating to 5 stars.

Love this app. I wish the Pokemon scanned were linked to the account instead of the phone, especially for people who play cross-platform. I have both iOS and Android devices and having to rescan is a nightmare, but necessary to participate in raids. I sometimes have issues with the name generator not working correctly, and really wish Dropbox wasnt the only backup/restoee option on Android, but otherwise this app does the job.

Pretty good most times. Very useful. The utility of this app is very helpful. I would like to see, if possible, some notification options if possible especially audible ones. I feel like this would really help with people being told when their que is up, especially for those long ques that are hours long and you can't just be sitting and staring at your phone. I would also, if possible, like to be able to utilize the app even when in que for a raid. Thank you.

Phenominal! Great navigation. Upgrades are definitely fairly priced and have restore option if having to get a new phone every 2 weeks. Lol I love this app. Only issue is I haven't successfully hosted a raid and when booted from a remote, raid passes aren't restored. Still... It's a 50/50 shot at catching the boss anyways, so it's all good. Really great app!!

I love this app a lot. I prefer it aesthetically over CalcyIV, it's easier to read the stat results, it looks modern and clean. Unfortunately I won't be using it anymore because there is no way to back up my data and restore it on another device. Any time I factory reset my phone or upgrade to a new device I have to re-scan all of my Pokemon. It's inconvenient.

This app is awesome it does everything it says and more. The only thing that I would love to have it do is show the stats of the Pokémon that I'm catching but it's a minor draw back but overall I really like it. I will mention that I did pay for the app a total of 9 bucks and if your planning on using the free version it is horrible but the paid version is awesome, if your willing to pay that you won't regret it. There are 2 things to buy first is 5.99 and second is 2.99. Will add more later.

Does a pretty good job. Some instructions are confusing or vague, so there's a learning curve, but not too hard to figure out. For example, when you want to remote raid, you may not realize you can't join until you can contribute at least 20% damage based on the pokemon you've scanned.
Henry Rodriguez

Wonderfully helpful POGO companion app. It provides the user with a plethora of useful features with a low learning curve. If I could change one thing, it'd be scanning your pokemon into their data base. It's tricky to get the moveset and CP. If not done just right, you may not be able to join raids.

I wish I knew if this app sooner. I had been using another app for some time and regret it deeply. This app not only provides super efficient, minimal stress remote raids but also an incredible overlay system for scanning your Pokémon and auto generates suggested battle combos, and the list just goes on. This is a very sophisticated, polished, and non money grabbing app. Huge respect to the developers.

I thought this app would be slow, glitchy, and overall not very good. However, it is opposite from all of that. The app is fast, has many features, and is super useful. It provides tips that beginners would find very useful. Provides an easy way to join remote raids and an easy way to change pokemon name. And those are just some of the many features it has. I use it mainly for those two things, but I'm sure many others who are more into Pokemon go would fimd the other features as useful.

Great tool to remote raid. The wait time can seem huge but it really goes pretty fast. Not sure about the scan feature. Pokemon with low CP seem to get a low evaluation even if they have really good stats but once you level them up some the evaluation changes. Would be more helpful if the scan captured their potential and not just their current value.

For the most part it works as intended. Wait times aside, depending on how popular a raid is, its really easy to do a raid. Downside it seems it's imperative that the host makes sure to send the notification that invites have been sent. Otherwise, people will miss joining the raid and leaving the group at a disadvantage.

Downside of this app is bad hosts/queues. You wait, and when you're to the front of the queue, you time out. Sometimes it lets you back in at the spot you were at, not always. Hosts invite lobby, people time out/leave before you can (which is inconvenient if you spent money on remote raid passes, losing or barely winning)-- no way to report players/host yet. Has way to appraise/index, but freezes; maybe it works better on newer devices? I've won 5 ☆ & MEGA raids I can't do normally though! 😊

I absolutely love this app. It is going to save me a lot of time. I didn't really get it for the raid feature that everyone is complaining about but I don't have an issue with minimum raid requirements. I will probably purchase an upgrade for it also. Only issues I have had so far is accidentally clicking on a couple adds and some of the backgrounds interfere with the scans

Love the different features. Wish it didn't crash/stop working so often. I'll appraise maybe 3 pokemon, then the app overlay button will disappear, and I'll have to go back to the app and start it again (which, if it takes too long, means I have to reload Pokemon Go). Crashing seems to be more frequent when I'm taking pokemon pictures or on some other action screen.

Decent app, but there's issues in the raid system lately. Either the placement notification is delayed, or the timer is messed up. I have my phone in my hand and am catching pogo. I get the notification about placement and go straight over to pokegenie and I've timed out already. This is happening a lot. I've timed myself and I'm taking at most 10 seconds, so it's not that I'm waiting too long.

Its nice though not perfect. Sometimes it annoys me when it doesn't lock the final stat of the pokemon after scan. (Still show IV range in between). Thanks for the reply. Yes i did the leader appraisal thing, most of the time it works. But sometimes, after the appraisal, when i try to rename my pkmn it goes back to the range IV stats.

Jun 18, 2021
Great but needs improvement. It tends to crash at times using overlay mode and if it doesn't crash then it causes Go to crash. The other problem is when raiding for legendaries some players have a habit of bailing with 2 seconds left causing the party to lose and waste a pass. There should be a use policy of no leaving with less than 20 seconds left and a feedback field after the raid to name any users who left or didn't join at all. The second offense soft ban them from raid services.

After testing both this app and calcy iv, I decided I greatly prefer the UI of this app. I also successfully used the raid group feature and it worked quickly and well. The ads have been unobtrusive. The pay features look worthwhile and reasonably priced, but I have not yet purchased them. The loss of 1 star is because the naming feature sometimes fails to recognize a PvP Pokemon. Edit: Emailed support and after a prompt response I was able to fix my issue with a small adjustment.

Easy to use and you can even connect to others to do remote raid. It automatically copied the stats of the Pokémon and you simply paste it on the nick name to show stats. I've had it since day one and it has changed a lot and has maintained the use friendly environment is always had. 👌

Great app! Fairly easy to use for IV appraisals, only issue is that the battle simulator ONLY recommends "top counters". Meaning out of my 170 scans, only 3 are recommended in most cases even when I have many more with higher CP. I'm looking for highest % done with what I have, not just the few that it recommends. Edit: new updates let you raid around the world, amazing if you don't have friends everywhere

Incredibly useful app. Flipping back and forth to some website or another app to input information was so tedious and time consuming, the overlay is amazing and the IVision addition is totally worth it in my opinion. The extra features are awesome as well and being able to back up data is nice. However trying to play a second account is incredibly obnoxious, all the scans get mixed together, you'd have to delete everything and load from individual back ups for each account.

It's a great app, very important for when new raids come out. Just gets annoying sometimes when you finally place in a match, and the host never sends a request. I send the friend request within the time limit and wait for the invite, but never comes. Although it does sometimes say something failed and out you at top of the list again, but most of the time it doesn't. All in all though for the most part this app helps a lot and is my go to

I love the idea and concept of the Poke Genie and the newly added IVision feature that allows for easy reading of IVs but the downfall is the app often malfunctions and will force close if open for a prolonged period (estimate +/- 10mins). Paying $4.99 kind of stings every time the app errors. [EDIT] With recent updates I am finding little to no errors or "force closing". The dedication to updating the app and adding new features to align with features added in game is SUPERIOR to any other app.

Great improvement to quality of life since the ability to join remote raid lobbies. Really helpful to those that don't live in the city. IV rater is great. Don't use any of the other options so I can't rate those. Great app. I'm hopeful that they'll add new features in the future. Would be nice to remote raid without remote passes though, would have been great during the year long lockdown, but that's Niantic refusal to help players.

Has been a great app/tool for it's intended purpose. Very helpful. Rated 4* bc 3-4 times in a 6 month stretch the app will turn my screen black and freeze. Not allow me to do anything or restart my phone, answer calls, just nothing. A couple times it took about 30 minutes before the black screen went away but 1 time I had to wait for my phone to die. So I actually uninstalled for a while. But have given it another chance.

Great app, helps a lot and very convinient, but few reoccurring issues. Ivision (which isn't free) sometimes goes haywire and shows false numbers and have to be restarted. Hard to reach raid simulator while awaiting a raid. It would be good if there was more information on what the stats mean so it can help make decision.

The app keeps freezing my phone. I'll try to get an IV and it will freeze the phone the only apps that are running are pokegenieiv and Pokemon. I have to completely restart my phone because it completely freezes the phone. And even then it takes 4 or 5 times just to get the phone to restart. The app is causing serious problems with the phone. I've emailed you on this matter before with no response. I'm now going to have to uninstall the app. This is unacceptable from this app.

I was new to Pokemon go, and searching for something to help me learn and get organized, And luckily I found Poke Genie! This has giving me a crash course in the game, and helped me skip a lot of the learning curve that my friends had over the last year or two. (I still need to dive into additional features, like analyzing and changing movesets, and the raid features that can connect to you with people all over the world, etc)

Love this app and the new raids feature! Fully customizable to organize your dex with naming conventions. It creates a name for each mon after a scan which you can paste. For example, I use "PVG_XX.X%" for great league candidates, "PVU_XX.X%" for ultra league, etc. It embeds whatever you choose into the name which makes filtering your dex much easier. To see all great league candidates in the 99 percentile I just type PVG_99 and there they are. Countless other possibilities too. Love it.

I've been playing PoGo since launch and I'm only now discovering apps like this exist. The overlay might kill your battery - especially when you're first scanning your collection - but you don't need it running at all times (FWIW, I'm on a Pixel 3). Being able to better understand what I have almost immediately is worth the $5 alone, and I haven't even tried the remote raid join feature.

This app is absolutely amazing! The most impressive thing is the constant development with useful features for players. I've used this app since the early days where it just showed you the hidden stats (before appraise was detailed). Now I can name Pokémon, assign optimized groups for raids, check type effectiveness and a ton more! Frequent innovation, stable, easy to use, intuitive, robust, and snappy.

This is a pretty reliable tool for determining which ones I want or need to keep but I'm docking a star because even in the same session; which isn't necessarily very long, I have to go back to the app and restart the overlay. It will also occasionally not narrow down the range which is slightly frustrating.

I use this app regularly. It is very helpful in preparing teams for the PVP battles. Recently, however, the button icon disappears immediately as do the results. This limits the usefulness of the app as I constantly have to reopen it. This is a new problem for me and I hope that the issue will be resolved. (This became better for a time and then reverted back. I cannot figure out why.) I have contacted support and will update this when I hear back and can hopefully resolve the issue.

I use poke genie every time I turn the game on. That being said, I don't think paying for IVision is worth it. It let me try it out for a little and I was like " wow this is so fast and efficient". But now that I have it is super unreliable. I spend more time restarting it and double checking that it's not on the last scan than just pressing the icon. Overall great app just probs an unnecessary add on

Best companion app ever! Everything works as it's supposed to. I saved myself a ton of effort and error with it. Before I got this app, I would sometimes cast away pokemon that may have been useful in online battles, but not anymore! The raid battle simulations are also a huge lifesaver because you can pull together the best team your collection can offer, taking into account stats, HP and movesets! I would and already have reccomended it to anyone that plays PG.

Great for determining IV's quickly and easily. New feature lets you see IV's while just browsing which is even better than the previous functionality. Unfortunately you have to pay for the feature, but it's a useful app that doesn't have intrusive ads or anything so I think it's worth the money.

Go-to program. Naming is fantastic! Backup and restore leaves alot to be desired. If you choose to restore name settings only, it's still restores all of your images 🤔. And going from one phone to another using Dropbox is painful. But the scanning and ratings, especially gl and ul iv, and everything else is awesome! I wish the power up and evolve button we're much more accessible. Calcyiv does scanning on the catching screen. I hope that's the next feature that will be implemented here.

This app is incredibly useful and I am sure I am only cracking the surface. I like that it has pvp integration though I wish you would add some kind of symbol by the League symbol representing meta relevance. The same could be said of tagging top tier attackers in the interface. You would have to update that from time to time. Lastly is you scan method. I would love to see you go with active capture. If I could just go scanning through my box like I can with pokeIV I wouldn't use it.

Amazing, with great updates. I've used this and CalcyIV. Poke Genie has a cleaner UI and feel to it while also getting quick updates that have the app work with the game in ways you expect it to. every aspect from the simple iv checker to the battle simulator works wonderfully. The export system set up is lacking since it only uses Dropbox and is behind a PayPal. Also, it would be good to allow the app to cater to multiple accounts on one device.

Pros: Accurate and in line with Silph Road and PVPoke. Easy to use. Naming function is extremely useful in bag management. Much more convenient that searching websites for the same information. Displays effectively but could use some streamlining. Cons: Needs ability like other apps to show percentages and auto scan Pokemon without hitting scan button for faster assessment.

I want 2 give 5 stars...the interface is very easy & intuitive. The description pop ups are useful.

When I first started back in August(19) this app was great. Now it sucks in April (20). The copy paste option for the pokemon name no longer works. I've seen others concerned about the same issue but I see no response from the app maker or any solution to this being fixed. What's the point of having an app that failed and the makers lack of communication on how or if this is going to be fixed. So frustrating.

Love that I can scan through quickly and get IV. However, now each time I scan, I have to manually delete the entire name for it to paste the IV. It used to just do it automatically after clicking on the name to change it. Not really bad, but when scanning a large amount, it does make it much more time consuming.

Great tool for managing your Pokemon library. The color schemes seem a bit off (why is grade A for attacking/defending a gym yellow, but grade B green?) and it takes a bit to wrap your head around some of the sorting options. It almost seems like they're sorted by their potential, not their current state. Overall I'm enjoying the app quite a bit.

Super useful, even for the not so serious players. I use the app mainly to transfer the weaker/lower ranked Pokemon to make sure I'm keeping the better ones. The battle/raid simulator is nice & I've used it a couple of times. The only complaint I have is that I have to scan each & every Pokemon in my inventory for it to show up for simulations/pokedex. I didn't download the app until a few months after I started playing so there are some not showing but that's not really an issue.

Update - this is the best I've used but unfortunately it doesn't give you an option to save your info to transfer from an older phone to a newer one. You then have to rescan each one for a new device. Fantastic, I love it because I can see so much at a glance. Only problem is that it is not linked to anything so I put it on another phone and it didn't link so I lost all my registered pokemon. I was able to rescan all that I had in my deck but still love it. A must have!

Really useful... until it crashes your screen. Was renaming my pokemon, things were lagging a bit, and then my screen went black. Phone still on but it was all black, with none of the touch responses working save for the fingerprint scanner, which would just open it to a black screen. I force restarted my phone and everything is fine but I'll be deleting this app.

I am rating 3 stars because the overlay randomly crashes on my Galaxy S9+ and prevents any screen input (home, back, etc.) from registering. The only resort is to force my phone to reboot with the hardware keys. It isn't the end of the world but it is an annoying inconvenience. Beyond the issue I describe, this app is great! It helps my inexperienced self identify the best PokeMon to keep, classifies and tracks it all. It really is a great piece of work overall!

It doesn't just help you make your competitive team, but does more and has the quality of life additions to make it done right. Being able to toggle the scan icon and having a 1 button press shortcut for selecting Pokemon from Pokemon Go as an alternative. This is a very human friendly and that is what matters most to me.

This app makes deciding which pokemon to keep and which to transfer/trade a lot quicker! I use it for their highly customizable renaming tool after PokeGo updated their own appraisal system. Sometimes the poke-genie overlay button glitches on my phone from time to time, looking like there are 2 buttons. 1 overlay remains immobile until I restart my phone. No harm, just annoying when it happens. I've not looked into the many other features Genie offers, but I consider PokeGenie a must have.

Since the most recent update, I am experiencing technical difficulty's. In particular, after "starting" the app, once I began to play"Pokemon go" , when I press the poke genie icon , it immediately powers my phone off.This happens every second press.I am familiar with the poke genie app, and how to use it as intended. This seems to be some sort of "bug" causing it not only to crash, but literally power my entire phone down (off). I will be uninstalling unfortunately. I have emailed support.

Makes grading my Pokemon so much easier. I am not sure if it is 100% accurate, but it is close enough. I had one say it was a bit lower and wouldn't be higher, I decided to power up just to see, as I normally would not have unless it would've been over 90%, but it ended being over 90%, so I was glad I continued to find out. I would like to know what the colors mean, black, gray, blue, green.

It's great except for 1 annoyance...it crashes often, especially if there's more than 1 app open. Its been the same on my last 3 phones, all different so Its not just my phone or service. If this problem could be fixed it would be 5 stars, hands down. The content, and %'s are easy to navigate and a huge help in the game. Personally I like it enough to use despite having to go the startup process again from time to time. But I can see how others might get pissed off. Hope this helps someone.

Dropping one star, simply because of the lack of data backup export/import feature. This app is already, in my eyes, a necessity for any serious or casual player. It's user-friendly accessibility and simple UI would only further be enhanced with a backup option to save custom templates, 'mons, battle sim data, etc. Please consider, And keep up the awesome work 🤘

This is a great app that helps understanding the strengths/ weaknesses of your pokemon much easier. The only issue is that since I've started using it, the game will randomly freeze (infrequently) causing me to need to close and reload. After the reload, works fine until the next random freeze. It is infrequent, maybe once a day and I'm not absolutely sure it's this app causing it. I'd still definitely recommend downloading & using the app though.

Crashes frequently. Freezes up phone to where I have to restart phone about every 5 minutes when using lately. I've even tried uninstalling and reinstalling. App is up to date on current version too. Whatever is causing the issues, I hope get fixed soon so I can come back to this app; until then I'll be using a different calculator.

This was hands down a great app, my favorite one when it came to using tools for pokemon go. But, up until the last month or so, everytime after i open the app and do maybe one pokemon scan (and itll complete the scan) the app either completely freezes on me, or it just totally shuts down/force closes all on it's own. Never ever have I had issues with this app before. So, I just uninstalled it and am reinstalling now to see if it fixes the problem. Fingers crossed !!!

I've never had issues with this app until the last update. Now it crashes constantly and when it does it freezes so you can't even click on the option to submit feedback to help the issue get fixed. Otherwise, it is an amazing app.

This app is amazing in it's free form. I gladly upgraded to premium (which is not usual for me) just to give something back to the developer. One thing out needs is the ability to export the list of scanned Pokemon, so that list can be maintained across new devices. As it currently sits, you would have to re-scan hundreds of Pokemon on a new device. Heck, this app is so useful that I wouldn't mind if the backup function were rolled in with the $2.99 premium upgrade.

If the app worked well, I'd give it 5 stars in a heartbeat. The problem is, it crashes my phone. Hard. Starting a few months ago, the app began freezing when I tries to use it. It didn't just freeze itself, though. I couldn't use any buttons when this happened, which in turn stopped me from being able to restart or shut down my device (Samsung Galaxy S8). Had to hold power and both volume keys to restart. I highly reccomend uninstalling this app until the devs fix this problem if it affects you.

I had an issue, directly after install, where my device kept locking/freezing when trying to use it. After a couple of power off/on cycles it corrected itself! I've had a great time using it since. Only wish there was a way to sync the pokedex in game and the pokedex in app w/o having to manually compare/delete between the two.

It is really decent, however, twice now while scanning a pokemon, it freezes my entire phone and "shoves" all of the screen into a 20px line at the top of the screen and the only fix is a hard reset (power button + volume down button). The guy at the phone store suggested not using this app anymore. I love the app, so fix this issue and you will get 5 stars, but every time from now on that it does it, the rating will drop until it's 1 star and I delete the app.

I wish I could give this app no stars. I had zero problems with this app until recently. I'll put up a Pokémon's appraisal, try to run the calculator and instantly my ENTIRE phone is frozen. I can't even restart it, I have to hold down certain buttons to hard restart. I've never had an app mess up my entire phone like that EVER. Worst app I've downloaded, easy.

its supposed to give IV levels, but constantly only gives ranges, never exact numbers. 80% of what I scan there is no way to tell, especially when the ranges are 12-70, or some wide scale. I believe the genie is worth messing with anymore. and yes my phone is updated and I have uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times. fix it and I might fix the rating.

I love the app and what it does. Would have been 5 stars but it crashes way too often and have to restart it, which causes Pokemon Go app to reload as well. I just updated the app. I will see if it runs better. - Downgraded for crashing all the rime, even on open without doing anything else. Now 1 star. It needs to be a lot more stable.

Really like the app, It's great for finding the best teams for Raids with the battle simulator and the naming is great. Only complaint is that it takes so long to scan each individual pokemon, and if you fall behind for any reason, and catch any new pokemon, it's so hard to catch up. Also I just got a new phone, and the App does not save and transfer any of your scans, even from a backup. That would be a great feature. So now I'm off to spend 8 hours or so scanning. Other than that, Great Job

I like the functionality of this app. However, it does not work well with my Samsung Note 8! Often it stops on its own, and today, my phone froze completely. I couldn't shut down or restart as I normally would, I had to do a forced shut down. It generally behaves worse on my sister's phone (LG). I uninstalled from my phone, will also uninstall from my sister's phone - very disappointed!

Works great during the day....not so much at night. I dont even have my phone set to change any screen settings at night, but it always messes up and can't read or gives 20% to 89% or something close to that on almost all Pokemon. So, this app is useless to me after 7pm.

Worked great until the update. Now prevents game from receiving GPS signal which makes it difficult to get IV ratings without remembering the CP of the pokemon since the error message covers that. I will fix my rating when there is a solution. Edit: Not sure what happened but it is working now. Restarted my phone with the intial issue and it still continued but appears to be working now. Thanks for the quick reply.

App periodically crashes my phone. The screen goes black and the phone requires a hard reset to fix the issue. I have a friend having the same issue with his S8+. The app was nice beyond this glitch.

I would give 5 stars, but 2 reasons i took away a star: 1) sometimes it will cause my phone to restart, most likely caused by drawing too much memory (easy solution; make sure the pokemon image is loaded so it doesnt happen as often), so partially due to my phone but brings the idea that the app could be modified to be slightly less demanding as long as it keeps its capabilities. 2)Isnt always 100% automatic, sometimes i enter cp consistently, even if its not blocked. Otherwise its fantastic.

Recently, since it's last update, the app has been closing on its own. I've had to uninstall and reinstall and it still does not work properly. This is beginning to be concerning and it's to the point I don't want to play PoGo anymore. The stats help tremendously with creating battle teams. But if the app doesn't function correctly, it defeats the purpose of playing PoGo. App needs to be looked re-evaluated very soon or it will lose out on many users.

After seeing the majority of the reviews for this app were good I finally decided to try it. It ran well for approximately 3 minutes before it started glitching and then completely froze my Galaxy S8+ to the point I had to do a factory reset. I've had this phone for almost 2 years and this is the first time it ever froze like that. Definitely wouldn't recommend.

only just got it but it makes Pokemon GO a lot better. not sure why they dont just give us the IV and stats in game but luckily this exists. This app is also a great lesson on how to put in ads. they are small banner ads that are totally non-intrusive and I appreciate that immensely. Almost any other free app would have a 30 second ad for every minute of usage or just spam and overload your screen with more ad than app. Great work!!

Absolutely fantastic. I havent noticed any of these memory leak problems or freezing issues and I have a 2 year old phone that was being replaced when i bought it.

Very easy to check IV. Great for figuring out which Pokemon to keep or transfer. Just the tap of a button and you get an assortment of stats. Because it makes use of screenshots and overlays its undetectable and therefore you can't be banned. The app is easy to use, rarely crashes or glitches, and has a nice UI. Other than the add pop ups, which actually quite conveniently don't cover much of the screen at all this is a great app and I would totally recommend you give it a try.

overall a great, indispensable app if you care about your IV. a very nice overlay, ads are not obnoxious. screen read works really well to scan IV automatically, only improvement would be to collect the moves better; i can scan from top, then scroll down a bit to see moves and scan again and it gets all data most of the time, some Pokemon will lose the top data after scrolling down, maybe cache the top data (cp, hp) better?

Have been using this app for months with no issue. Super helpful. However today, for the first time, this app completely crashed my phone. I touched the button to scan a Pokemon's info, and my Samsung Galaxy S9+ was rendered completely unresponsive. Locking and unlocking the phone did not work. I had to soft reboot the phone to regain any semblance of functionality. Not sure why this happened, and considering it's the only time it's ever happened, I'm only deducting 1 star off of my rating. If it continues to happen again, I'm unfortunately gonna have to take off more. Hopefully an update is released that fixes this problem in its entirely, as I've seen other reviews with the exact same issues.

Super helpful for knowing which Pokemon to invest your time me in and which to transfer. Just started GO but I've played the GB games and IV was always huge. Go is no different. The same Pokemon with Different IVs might have a 10% or greater stat difference after they've been trained. This app makes is so easy to evaluate IV, much easier than flipping back and forth between screens trying to enter numbers on a website. 10/10 wpuld recommend.

The app works 98% of the time. The other 2% I have problems with the overlay vanishing and I have to restart my phone before it works properly again. I believe this is due to my ram being to high but it rarely happens so it does not effect my rating of the app. Overall my favorite aspect of Poke Genie is the various tools you can use. Whether you need a scanner, name generator, battle simulator and etc, you can find it all here. Since discovering this app I have had a better time playing PoGo.

Extremely useful and easy to use! Now that my poke storage is limited, I can tell within seconds if a particular pokemon is worth keeping or transfering and if it's worth evolving. One bit of advice: If it's a decent rating, also do an appraisal. Sometimes it will go up or down. For example: a Good will go up to Great or a Great will go down to Good. I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S9 and have had zero problems with the app crashing or freezing...which is more than I can say for the Pokemon Go app!

At first i really liked the app. Recently though, it hasn't been working. Keeps saying scan failed. I sent bug report, they wrote me back telling me that my screenshot was dim with a tint.

I think it does a great job evaluating the pokemon, but as soon as I put it on my phone, (Galaxy S10) it started crashing. It didn't matter if it was in use, my phone would freeze and turn off. When I'm using Poke Genie, I can evaluate 3 or 4 then it freezes my whole phone. I get a black screen and have to do a soft reboot to restart my phone. The moment I took it off, my phone started performing normal again.

Doesn't work for some pokemon. I have selected for the name generator to include the move types. On many, it does not. It also does not show the move analysis with the types and percentages for attack and defense for many pokemon. It's a super helpful analysis, but it doesn't work on so many, that it's pretty much useless. Anyway, I'm going to try another calculator and see if it works more consistently. They've got a good start here. Just some reliability issues. I have the newest galaxy phone.

I am impressed with this app. It does everything I want it to (calculate IVs) and doesn't crash much or at all. The ads are small enough that they don't make me want to smash my phone. The android version is much better than its iPhone counterpart. Iphone version analyzes screenshots instead of an overlay mechanic.

Will change the amount of stars if the problem is fixed. I loved the app until I changed phones. Now when I scan a pokemon I always have to put CP in and change it from the finaly form of whatever line I'm scanning to whichever form I'm actually scanning. Tried sending a bug report twice and each time I would get an error email saying it can't be sent.

I use this app daily as it provides a necessary element essential in helping players keep organized. I've tried several other apps, but found Poke Genie is by far the leading IV Calculator-far superior is the auto-appraise feature. This only issues I have stumbled upon are it's high battery consumption (so don't leave it running if not actively using it) and if I recieve a FB Messenger message, my phone goes into lag mode as I assume it's because they both utilize the active overlay.

Easy to use. Whether you use the auto fill or manual put in the information its easy and informative. The app was recommended to me by a friends who also play. the newer features are great too. Like the appraisal for example. Instead of remembering what your team leader said you just hit the ribbon button at the top, use appraisal by your leader and it checks off the boxes for you as the text comes up. Simple, easy, and informative.

Pretty easy and effective to use. The only real downside I've come across is the drain to my batteries life. I have experienced some increased lag from Pokemon Go now and again, when using this app. However, I have a Samsung Galaxy S7, which already has latency issues with Go. The app itself doesn't create the lag, but it doesn't help with it when my phone is acting up. Otherwise it works perfect.

Super useful for showing IV's, move sets, and more. It doesn't cheat or spoof, just shows you information on an overlay. Open Poke Genie and let it boot up the game, go to your pokemon, click one and tap the icon to see the IV and potential CP range as well as look up moves and other useful options. It doesn't change anything for you, just shows you what you've got and other options.

Scanning, tracking of Pokemon storage, and the battle simulator are good. One thing irks me a little. Never completely keeps track of all Pokemon scanned. Generally it loses track of about 2 (varies). It's not me, as I've checked again and again in the past. Recently was clearing out extra Torchic and was short 2. Found the 2 and scanned again, and was still short 2. Seems to randomly delete scans once in a while. Also sometimes creates duplicate scans if scanned again later on.

Started crashing in the background causing full phone freezes. Happened twice since Treecko CD. Needs to have built-in time out if yhe program is taking several minutes to evaluate IVs. Reatarted phone and cleared cache, hasn't happened since. EDIT: the problem has persisted across cache clears and through a reinstall. This has happened to several of my friends as well on recent versions (last few months). This needs to be resolved, as a full phone freeze is unacceptable.

As far as overlay apps go, this is perfectly non-invasive, and clean. There is a moderate learning curve with the process, but thankfully the app provides simple to understand images with step by step instructions. Also, the name generator is azing once you figure it out. Poke Genie essentially allows you to rename a pokemon with scores auto populated in the name. For example, if im selecting which Machamp to leave at a gym I can easily discern which one based on the stats in the name!

I would give this 5 star, but its missing some sorting options that are available in the ios version such as the defense and attack "ability" sorts. Also, when you view a pokemon in the dex in the ios version, you can see 3 bars with helpful percentiles to guage usefulness, but these also are absent in the android version. The overlay is definitely great though, and it's a welcome addition to the app coming from ios. I do greatly miss the "ability" sorts though from ios. So overall, 4 stars.

This has been really helpful! I love that I can use the app when Pokemon Go is open (though this may only be available on Androids), and it's super convenient that it lets you rename your pokemon with the IV next to it. It's not always accurate 100% of the time, but it gives you a range of what the IV could be and you can get a more accurate reading by putting in the extra info it needs. Would definitely reccomend for anyone tired of having to look up IVs separately 👍🏼

Great app... most of the time. it seems like once a week the app causes my OnePlus 6T to freeze and become completely unresponsive. The only way to fix it is to force reset the phone holding down the power and volume up buttons. It never happened before I downloaded the app and it only seems to happen when Poke Genie is running. Coincidence? I don't think so.

Once I've scanned a pokemon, I can't just tap the back button to escape the overlay

Working exactly as intended. The overlay button to access the tool is simple and moveable. So far the scanning feature works great except for larger pokemon that obscure the CO value, but you are quickly prompted to correct it. Narrowing down possible IVs is simple and overall, the tools available are great. The built in ads are not too obtrusive and were this a paid app, I would definitely buy it.

Overall a great app for IV calculations, just puts an overlay on your screen to scan your pokemon when you tap it. Just keep in mind that it stores your scans, and keeps scans even if you don't own that pokemon anymore (traded it in or something). So, in order to keep your app organized, I suggest you delete the scan while you're in that menu in-game, instead of going through the archive in the Poke Genie app and guessing which ones to delete or not.

It's effective and I'll keep using it but it's annoying that I have to enter in all the info ( but HP) everytime. I would use it more often if I didn't have to do that.

This is extremely useful to figure out IV and run raid battle simulators. Being a newer player I like knowing I have the type effectiveness chart handy too. Now that I've been using this app, I don't think I could play Pokemon Go without it! On Android, the overlay feature makes it that much easier to use too. Makes me feel sorry for those with Apple, as they don't have the same overlay option.

Works but very slow. Also sets off annoying notification sound every time you open it and won't remember where the overlay button is floating so you have to reposition the overlay every time you start (or restart) the app. Appraising seems to miss capturing data unless you sit on every screen for 3-5 seconds, I could hand enter it faster. Also puts annoying ads across the bottom of your game. EDIT: Unsure how to reply to comment, my phone is LG V30 (Verizon branded, fully stock Android 8.0.0). Other apps I tried (GoIV, CalcyIV) don't trigger notification sounds on start (but they do show a notification at the status bar, which is fine) and CalcyIV seems to catch appraising data basically as fast as I can tap thru the screens darn near 100% of the time.

Admittedly, this is the only Pokemon Go stat calculator that I've used, so I don't have much to compare it to. This thing is beautiful, though. My wife has this on the iPhone, but the latest features of the Android OS allow for a great overlay, using screen caps, rather than having to take screen shots. The ads are unobtrusive, and they seem to give the same sorts of ads that I get in Chrome. I have no complaints with this thing, and it works great.

It's a great app, really helpful and comes with a lot of unique features, wish one of them wasn't behind a paywall though. I think the ads are good enough and the option to turn them off for paying is good, ads are annoying but you got to make money somehow. I just feel like you should make enough with the ads and don't need another pay incentive.

Fun and interesting means now im frustrated. It gets 4 stars due to its slight learning curve. (It took a few tries to figure out what I needed to do.) but other than that it does what its supposed to. Finding out the IVs however has led to a whole new frustration on all of my origional evos being garbage iv's so here's to not knowing this stuff at the beginning. Be aware it doesnt give the straight IV on all of them sometimes it gives a range and I havent figured out how to narrow it down.

Wish it would stay on overlay when activated instead of disappearing from time to time. Also wish I could sort my Pokémon inventory by star color or self made categories (e.g., Pokémon to evolve, defensive gym, attack). Kinda wish it included suggested move sets to better sort attack and defense. Nevertheless, very useful and much faster than using a web based calculator. Seems to be fairly accurate as well.

Excellent Tool! Don't get overwhelmed by the options. Start with the appraise option and then go from there. The dev's are constantly adding new features. My biggest complaint is that the CP bar can be covered by your monster or a pop-up and even the tiniest bit will cause it to error. Hope they can fix that in a future update.

Overall a good app for checking IVS, straight forward and easy to understand. It is a little glitchy, crashes every once and a while, but other than that I love it! I personally would like if there was a drag the button to the center to close the overlay option 😍

This app is amazing. They're really quick with updates, every time Niantic goofs around with the nitty gritty, this app is updated the next day. I would like to see the ability to scroll the game in order to allow poke Genie to pick up moveset, trade history, & distance information. Particularly since the addition of a second charge move, not enough information is displayed when captured

I have used this app on both Android and iPhone devices. It is by far more convenient on an android device. The overlay is great and easy to move around. Scanning is a breeze. On an iPhone however, you have to keep up with everything a little more on your own. There is no overlay, so it's a constant back and forth. Becomes a little tedious.

Works great, user friendly and has abilities other iv checkers dont like battlesim and the name generator witch allows you to display Pokemon ivs, movesets, type, overall percentage and more through the nickname feature, all through copy paste methods. And you can customize the templates and even change the preset symbols, love that they allow you to make it yours. To the developer(s) plz don't ever change that!! Awesome app. Only thing I could recommend to make it complete is a built in breakpoint calculator

It works really well on my Galaxy S8+. I have only had it glitch once, and there were a lot of programs open at the time. It's also not a huge drain and doesnt cause problems with anything else running. I keep it open so that I can IV check as I catch.

Edit: support responded quick. There is another way of pasting other than holding down on screen and clicking on paste balloon. Still requires multiple taps but works. I was able to copy and paste the Pokemon name with tiny IV rating but some odd reason I cannot get it to view clipboard menu overlay when trying to paste. Tried messing with display zoom and font size on my Note 8 with no success. Only things that changed was the Pokemon Go app and poke genie app being updated when play store offering updates. I can still manually paste the name using Samsung keyboard but unfortunately that isn't my default keyboard. I use GBoard and it used to work. Now..Im forced to use samsung keyboard.

There are a few bugs with certain phones having crash issues after the first or no scan at all. But when working it lives up to the expectations and i find myself having fun just scanning through all the stuff I've kept over time since i had started. Very good app and convinient to boooot.

Awesome, easy to use, does exactly what it says. Only issue is it bogs down my phone, pokemon go is already a bit of a resource hog, so the game starts to lag once the overlay is activated. Fortunately there's not a good reason to do this out and about anyway, I'm content just doing mass appraisals at home where I'm not going to be catching much, so the lag in the game makes little difference.

The naming feature will not work on my screen. I have a Google Pixel 2 (not xl) and apparently my screen in not large enough to click on name edit while the calculation screen is open. If it weren't for this and repeated crashes I would give the app a 5 star rating. In response to developer notes below. I have tried this repeatedly, even before you suggested. No, its not user error. Have had my husband and sister try to help me as well.

It's a good app for finding Pokemon IVs and it is very simple and easy to use. I eventually removed it because it is a terrible drain on my battery and even worse, it freezes up all the time. It also tends to give ranges instead of giving specific IVs, which can be kind of annoying when sorting through lots of Pokemon. I would also add that it doesn't give as much information as some other apps. After trying some others, I feel like I made some bad Pokemon decisions with PokeGenie's guidance that I wouldn't have made, if I had more of the information that the other apps offer.

Definitely a useful app, BUT... Using Android Pie (Pixel 2), the overlay seems to keep closing for no reason. I've given it the permission to display over apps. The issue persists even in manual/screenshot mode. =( I don't know if there's any way to find a crash log? Anyway, it just takes a bit longer to catalog all my 'mon since I have to constantly switch back to Poke Genie and re-enable the overlay. (Edited to correct the Android version)

The are so many features that I just love! I like that it reads my screen so I don't have to type all the info in. I like the names that it puts on the clipboard automatically. I like that I can quickly see what a 100% IV would look like on that level. I like that it can calculate what the stats would be if I dumped stardust and candy into a pokemon. This is a great app! The only downside is that for all that goodness, it does use a lot of resources. So, if you have a lower-end phone, the may be some issues with performance.

It's an all around pretty useful app for Pokemon go players! Although, I do have a couple small complaints... But they must not be too important! Considering the fact, that I can only remember one. Sometimes it'll leave another icon, whenever I attempt to move the pokegenie's icon from is usual place on my screen... But the"ghost icon" does nothing when pressed!? Even if I press the "remove overlay" option... The only way to get rid of it, is to restart the app!?

I love this app, and the new name generator is amazing. I give 4 stars because I think it could be improved slightly! When there are multiple IV possibilities, if the avg IV is the same, it should pick any possible atk/def/hp combo since they all equal the same avg IV anyways. Ex: 2 possible combos that equal 87, pick either one. To further improve the feature, you could add an option to go with the highest or lowest possible avg if within a certain range. Example: if range is within 5 (68-73), give me the option to list the highest or lowest possibility (i.e. if lowest, list the combo that corresponds to 68). Otherwise, just name it the avg or range w/o specific spec or whatever . I could choose what the range is and whether to default to highest or lowest combo. I just feel like the name generator is flawed by the fact that a large portion of encounters have multiple possible iv's. Otherwise, amazing app.

Great app. Easy to use, intuitive, and useful. The name generator is a fantastic addition and is super customizable. However, I have been encountering an occasional major issue where sometimes when I hit the overlay button to rate a mon, it force restarts my phone. I'm using an LG Stylo 2 plus. Any help with the issue would be appreciated. Resolve this and this, app gets the 5 stars it deserves.

It's great when it works, which is 95% of the time. But once in awhile it hangs up. Or can't read the mon's CP's. Once I had to soft reset my phone it glitched so bad. And it can be sluggish at times as well. But overall, nothing works as well in terms of game info, or is as safe. So, it's a Recommend from me with a smidge of caution.

Twice now the app has caused crashes. First time was just the game. Second time my whole phone. It was so frozen I couldn't even turn my phone off! Had to remove the battery and put it back in to fix it. Worried about permanent damage, I deleted the app. If it wasn't for this, the app would be very useful but it clearly has some issues to work out.

The layout is nice. The UI is relatively simple and easy to figure out. My only problems are: (1) the percentage is shown as an error bar, rather than any sort of numerics, and (2) for some Pokémon, it doesn't help me any more than the appraisal, because I already know the range of values for each tier.
