Adding Poke Stop

Hello community new here and also been trying to add a new stop. But keep getting the error saying Piodescription. I've changed numerous things trying to help the business owner submit his card Shop to become a pokestop. It's a Pokémon Sports cardshop.

Here are screen shots of what I've typed. Can anyone help me out of what I'm doing wrong. Thank you in advance.

    I'm looking at this with fresh eyes, and to add to my earlier advice and that of the commenters above, I also recommend:

    • Use the full name of the shop for the title, "PokéPawn Cardshop"
    • As mentioned with my comment about events/tournaments, it's important for hobby shops to have a social element to be eligible to become a PokeStop. I looked at the shop online, and on their Facebook page, it looks like they host streams? It's unclear to me if these are like fan chats or more of a one-way broadcast. If they're the second one, I wouldn't count them as events. If the shop is basically a place where people make a transaction then leave, please note this shop would not meet PokeStop eligibility criteria. There has to be some connection with the community and some social aspect. Whatever form that takes, it's important to mention it in the description.

    I thought about suggesting the actual store name as the title, but I was concerned some confused reviewers might reject it because "No game references in title or description". May be safer to submit with a generic title and edit after it gets accepted.

    I would reject it even without the mention of Pokémon Go because it seems to be a blatant attempt by the business owner to get free advertising. It you want a Pokéstop at your business, pay for a sponsored shop.

    If it's a great place to socialize, it doesn't matter if it's a business or not. Nowhere do the criteria say "reject businesses so they can give us money to buy stops". The nomination should focus on the socialize aspect and not sound like an ad, though.
