How do I create a new PokéStop or Gym

We are not accepting requests for new PokéStops or Gyms.

While we are not accepting new PokéStop or Gym submissions directly through Pokémon GO at this time, you can submit a request for a location to be added to Pokémon GO through Ingress, another game offered by Niantic. Ingress players Level 10+ can submit locations to be reviewed by the Ingress community for inclusion in Ingress and some of these locations will also be added to Pokémon GO. However, please keep in mind that not all Ingress Portals will become Pokéstops or Gyms in Pokémon GO.

In the meantime, if you are having trouble finding PokéStops or Gyms near you, please try visiting a local park, tourist attraction, or other interesting and historical locations in your community.
