How do I remove and delete my Pokemon GO account?
Did you know that Pokémon GO account removals are irreversible and you will not be able to reuse the nickname again for Pokémon GO. PokemonGo cannot honor any cancellations once you have confirmed you’d like to remove your account.
Please contact Niantic to delete your Pokémon GO account. This will completely remove your account and you will no longer be able to play Pokémon GO.
Account deletion requests currently take several weeks to review and process.
- First, go to Niantic’s support site and navigate to the Pokémon Go page. Then click on “Support” and search for the instructions for deletion. We simply typed in “delete” and clicked on one of the results: “How do I delete my Pokémon GO account?” Click on the “contact us” link. Or skip all that and click here.
- Next, fill in the required fields (i.e., all of them) and check off all the boxes. We’re not sure what Niantic expects us to write in the blanks, so we kept it simple. You can also attach a file, though that shouldn’t be necessary here.
- After clicking “Submit,” you will get an email informing you that your request was received. The message also stresses that this is a permanent process, and you can still opt out if you’re having second thoughts.
- To complete the termination, you have to reply to the email with the word “DELETE.” You lose everything associated with the account, and won’t be able to reuse your nickname. Consider all this before you reply.
