Pokémon Go players now have the opportunity to nominate special areas in or near their hometowns as PokéStops. This new nominating feature is currently available in beta mode and has been released in a number of different countries thus far. In order to nominate new PokéStops, a player must be at Trainer Level 40 in Pokémon Go and a resident of one of the following countries: Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Denmark, Ecuador, El Salvador, Germany, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, India, Indonesia, México, Nicaragua, Panamá, Paraguay, Perú, Philippines, Portugal, Singapore, South Korea, Suriname, Taiwán, Thailand, Uruguay, Venezuela (Bolivarian Republic), or Vietnam.
Unfortunately, nominations for PokéStops cannot be accepted for any private residences, so it is not possible to have a PokéStop at your home. Examples of locations that are eligible for PokéStop nominations include historical sites, famous buildings, public parks, trail signs, schools, churches, and transit stations.
Once you have entered, you will receive a congratulatory email if your nomination is accepted. Niantic Games makes it clear, however, that even if your nomination is accepted, it may still not appear live in Pokémon Go. Nianitic reserves the right to use the nomination in other games.
