A quick note about some upcoming changes taking effect on Wednesday (8/11/21) that may affect your Pokémon Go and Wayfarer experience.

  • PokéStop Nominations: PokéStop nominations will be suspended for a week while we perform some maintenance on this feature. While we hope this pause won’t take the whole week, we’ll keep you posted when nominations are live again.
  • Refactoring Code & Tackling Tech Debt: We are excited to be shipping our code-refactored website, which we mentioned in our March 2021 Roadmap Update. While the look and feel will be the same, the update brings long-term reliability and stability to your existing Wayfarer experience.

Thanks for your patience as we work through these infrastructure updates!

I hope that you will find all the answers to your questions regarding gaming on our site. Stay healthy, and love each other!


    1. what makes you think that? you should do some research on the top grossing mobile games so you don’t make yourself look like an a** lol

  1. People are pulling stops they added to the game due to the company being money hungry and not listening to the players. So now they are going to keep making it worse. Sounds like a solid plan to me ( heavy sarcastic tone ).

  2. Any chance of an update? This was reported two weeks ago and Pokemon Go players still don’t have nomination capability restored.

  3. The fact that you have to be a level 38 now to submit a pokestop nomination is a bit outrageous. It already takes forever to level up once you hit level 25.
