A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
A clear, organized interface makes navigation and creation of new content intuitive and simple.
Violence & Scariness
Content is curated by Narvii administrators and is designated with a PG rating. But the sheer volume of content within the app probably makes oversight difficult.

Narvii's guidelines feature strict prohibitions against nudity and sexual content as well as sexual subject matter in chat. Users who engage in such things can be banned from the app.

Products & Purchases
Guidelines do not permit users to promote themselves or commercial products. Some of this is likely to slip through, however, due to the sheer amount of user-created content. App content based on popular franchise.
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Discussion of drugs, drinking, or smoking is not allowed, but administrators are unlikely to catch every instance of it.

Is It Any Good?
This social network is well-made and gives members all they need to create and share fun content with one another, but the content itself is often not that great. Poké Amino for Pokémon Community makes it easy to skim through and favorite and bookmark thousands of member-generated posts. Members can easily follow (or block) one another and can create their own communities by downloading the (separate) Amino Creator & Manager. Though the developer monitors incoming content, community administrators are also expected to keep things friendly and PG-rated, which was generally true during the time of review. However, as with any app or website dependent on user-generated content, the quality of what's available varies widely. Since the release of Pokémon GO, this app has seen an upsurge in membership and a flood of new content, but it's time-consuming extracting the worthwhile stuff from all the junk. Beyond that, it's often difficult to find a chat room with anyone in it or to find one where members are actually discussing Pokémon. While not perfect and not for younger kids, this is a viable option for teens to geek out about their collections and further the social elements of the game they love.
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.
