In just about one week, the mobile sensation Pokemon Go has quickly taken over as one of the most popular mobile games to release in quite some time, with developer Niantic, Inc. having now added the ability to request new PokeStops across the world.

Niantic’s official page for Pokemon Go has added a new form allowing users to request new PokeStops to be added to their region, after filling out some simple information such as the address, the location’s latitude/longitude, and more.

The form also serves as a way for users, businesses, and other locations for their area to be removed as a PokeStop from the in-game map, whether it is due to being in a dangerous locations, to prevent loitering, or for other various reasons.

Pokemon Go is currently available on iOS and Android in Australia, the US, and Europe, with the game expected to debut in other regions soon.
