Earlier this week, there were concerns about Pokemon GO not providing enough PokeStops or Gyms for players living in rural or less populated areas. It looks like Niantic is aware of this problem, and so they’ve now opened up requests for possible locations as PokeStops and Gyms.
If you head over to their website, you’ll see a submission form where you’ll have to fill in quite a few details about the location you’re requesting to be added to the game. These include the name of the PokeStop, the exact address, as well as your reasons for submitting this particular location for review. If you wish, you can also submit the exact coordinates of the location for more accuracy.
PokeStops are an important part of Pokemon GO because these places allow you to collect free items, gain experience points, and even set up Lure Modules to attract new Pokemon to your location. They’re also a great socializing point for fellow trainers, and this will certainly help out those living in countries with few PokeStops.
