I love this PokéAmino

I love this app so much! No problems with the leaders. Community nothing! Everyone is super nice and friendly and positive! I love being able to talk to people about anything and don’t get harassed by staff. The PokéAmino leaders are the nicest leaders ever! And I couldn’t get enough of the app! I loved Pokémon since I was six. My brother and sister grew up with generation one of the show. All and all. I love Pokémon and this Amino o along with the PokéAmino stall. And I hope there’s more positivity to come on this wonderful community we call Pokémon!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (1 ):

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.
