I can't see any Pokémon, but I can see the map, and it won't let me tap the screen. There also aren't any Pokéstops nearby me.

    I don't believe this is a duplicate, it appears to be a difference issue. – George Willcox Jul 18 '16 at 16:13
  • This is definitely not a duplicate people. Please offset the downvotes and upvote instead. – dphil Jul 18 '16 at 16:23
  • If you can't see anything on the map, it may be because you're in a region where Pokémon Go hasn't released officially yet. – fcm Jul 18 '16 at 16:23
  • @fcm Nope, I'm familiar with this issue as I noticed someone else I know with the issue and fixed it for them. – dphil Jul 18 '16 at 16:27
  • It's certainly a dupe. Perhaps not of that one, but a dupe, indeed. – Frank Jul 18 '16 at 16:30

The game hasn't loaded properly, try restarting the app. But if this error is persistent, you could try reinstalling the game. Also make sure that you have a good internet connection, and GPS.


My wife installed this game on her mother's phone and had the exact same issue and they couldn't figure it out. I took a look at the phone and noticed GPS/location was turned off. I turned it on and it started working.
