News: Niantic has opened up a request form for Pokemon Go to try and help those who can’t find many Pokemon creatures in their area.
Pokemon Go has been out for one week but if you live in a more rural area then chances are you haven’t been able to play as much as someone who lives in a more dense area. Niantic is looking to change that and has opened up requests for new locations for Pokemon gyms and PokeStops. This will hopefully allow open up the game to an even broader set of people once these new locations start rolling out.
To request a location all you have to do is go to their support page (link located at the bottom of the page) and submit a request. They will want your email address, any information you think is important, the reason why you want a Pokemon gym or PokeStop and other bits of information. In addition they have an attachments section where you can upload a picture of the place that you want to become a location in Pokemon Go.
There is no telling how long it will take from the time you submit a request until the time you actually see that new Pokemon gym and/or PokeStop show up near you but it is nice to know requests are being taken. Additionally, if you feel an existing Pokemon gym or PokeStop is in a dangerous area then you can inform Niantic about that as well and then they will look into it and potentially remove it from the game.
How many PokeStop locations and gyms are near you? Are you going to try and submit a new location? Tell us what you think below.
