Was pretty good at first but an update made it unplayable on my devices

This was a great game until the recent update made it unplayable on my phone and tablet. And my tablet runs Android 6 Marshmallow so it should not have the trouble running it.

Is It Any Good?

As expected with the Pokemon franchise, the graphics are impressive, and the background information about Pokemon is really helpful, especially for kids just entering its wide and detailed world. Beyond the simple games, which can get pretty repetitive, the island has other fun surprises for kids to explore and discover. The sticker and pin collecting is likely a gateway to card-collecting. Even if kids aren't sold on the app, parents who don't quite understand the Pokemon phenomenon might appreciate listening in on the counselor's instructions to get an idea of what the craze is all about. Although the underlying tone may be "hook 'em while they're young," this app is a nice treat that lets early Pokemon fans join in on the fun.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
