Niantic announces PokéStop nomination feature for Pokémon GO, beta coming soon to Korea and Brazil for level 40 players

Niantic has announced a PokéStop nomination feature for Pokémon GO, which is entering beta soon for level 40 players in Korea and Brazil. The official announcement from the development team is as follows:

PokéStop Nomination Beta Comes to Brazil and South Korea!

Trainers,

Coming soon, we’ll be rolling out the first beta test of the new PokéStop nomination system! This will be the first time that Trainers will be able to submit locations in Pokémon GO. Submissions will be evaluated for future inclusion in the game.

This feature will initially be limited to level 40 Trainers (child accounts excluded) in Brazil and South Korea.

Trainers who meet these initial requirements will be able to nominate potential PokéStops by submitting photographs and descriptions of the locations. Submissions will be reviewed by experienced users in the Ingress Operation Portal Recon (OPR) project.

You can find rules and guidelines on how to submit a PokéStop in our Help Center. Stay tuned for more news as this program expands to other countries, and please accept our thanks for working to make Pokémon GO an even better experience!
