Do you live in an area with lots of stops, gyms, maybe even EX Raid gyms? Tell us all about what your part of the world is like!

Some blocks away from my house we have a generous set of stops, though I've only been there once recently. Several gyms as well that I also don't participate in at all. My local PoGo Discord community has a lot of people chatting in it so there's that! We had way more of a community for the game here than I thought. @[email protected]

It is more difficult where i am. I only live a couple blocks from a gym. (Idk what ex gyms are) and the nearest 1 pokestop is lik 4 blocks. I have to go downtown if I want anything more lol. I still haven't ever battled at a gym or raided because I dont have any groups and the gyms are mostly at churches and they dont like when you just loiter in their lots... Even the one down the street Im too scared to sit there long enough to battle lol

Almost nothing where I live there's no point in going out. The only time I can really catch much of anything or do any raids is by going into the next town and going to the college there and the surrounding area. Thus why I don't play very often.

I live in a town with literally zero Pokéstops and, of course, zéro Gyms. The closest Pokéstop is in the nearby city, about 15 km of distance. Even spawns are really rare I walk for real long distance to no avail.
Luckily, I work in the center of the city so I have access to several Pokéstops and Gyms that I visit daily.
Sadly, I often break the 7 days Pokéstop spining streak since I don't work on Sundays and I don't always go for the city on Sundays.

Hello guys,

I've moved from another city, but here doesn't have any pokestop or gym. I'm in level 34,so I can't ask a pokestop until 40. Anyone could ask a pokestop for me?
Use a Location mocking/spamming app. It will work best if you belong in an area without any pokéstop(but dont use it too much otherwise the game would detect you changing your location frequently and would ban you). Recently my Area just got an update for the Pokéstops and Gyms. But the nearest is still 1 km away.(which is still good enough)

Edit: Do you even still play Pokémon Go even during this time of Pandemic?
Or is it that your city doesnt have much Cases and less Lockdowns and can still have much activity going around in the streets. In my area, its prohibited to walk in the streets without a mask n everyone's pretty much afraid due to the increase in numbers of Infected people in my area.

There are a few gyms and pokestops in my vicinity, but I don’t care about this game too much to go to the places (plus Pokémon go stopped working on my phone for some reason). The main times I can go to gyms are when I go on vacation and sometimes in school (there’s a gym and pokestop near my school)

I've got about 10 gyms, 3 ex raids, 50-75 stops, 5 clusters.
10 people.
So if there's a 4-5 star raid, nope

There are 2-3 Pokestops at the park/hospital nearby and another Pokestop near my work. I have to drive to more populated areas to find gyms, raids, and clustered Pokestops. Sometimes I drive around looking for new areas to explore, but the Pokestop ends up being this random building or store... not exactly somewhere I'd want to walk around by myself at. These days I get my Pokestop fix at Starbucks.

I'm lucky with working at the mall and I get a bunch of stuff along with Poke Stops.

So I’m buying my first home in the next few weeks... when we went to view it I pulled up Pokemon Go and couldn’t believe it...

There’s a small green opposite, and the green is a gym... except for one thing. The gym has been miss placed and is actually bang on top of my new house 😂

TLDR; my house is a gym.

While my town is full of stops and gyms, there isn't many people around to raid. So I usually end up having to solo raids. Which I can sometimes solo a Level 3, but most of the time I am just short. So I have to depend on invites which I rarely get. And when I do, usually I don't have time to react or there isn't enough people.

Gyms seems to balanced here. So sometimes you see all controlled by Valor or the other teams.

I live out in the country, so until about August of last year, I never had pokemon spawn at the house, but now I usually have 10 to 20 pokemon spawned at once. The closest poke stop and gym is about a mile down the road. Which is most cases my team controls for a LONG LONG time until finally someone takes it, but doesn't last long.

Other towns barely have anything around. So my town is the epicenter with about an hour away from the biggest town that has a ton more stuff.

I have two playgrounds that I can reach from my apartment. One is a pokestop and the other is a gym. The gym is usually controlled by Instinct, but there aren't enough players around so I can almost always get my 50 daily coins if I don't forget to actually take over the gym. I very, very rarely see a Valor player here, it's either Instinct or a couple of Mystic players who pop up every now and then.

There's also a large park at about 20 minutes by foot, I usually go there for walking tasks, and there are plenty of stops and gyms there.
