We all know Pokemon Go and the effect it has created all over the world. The game that involves catching Pokemons in real life on roads and pavements has hit a serious hurdle right now. Since the Pokemon Go official app did not have a map that users really liked, third-party applications started pouring in day and night in order to piggyback Pokemon Go’s success. However, we can’t dismiss the importance and the benefits that these third party apps have brought to the table. The biggest distinguishing factor that was clear to everyone was that while Pokemon Go’s map did not have any options to filter out the Pokemons already present in a player’s Pokedex, the third party apps provided that benefit, which, in turn, led to the popularity of these apps. Again, Niantic Pokemon Go developers, started objecting to these third party apps because apparently, they were slowing down the servers of Pokemon Go.
The objection manifested itself as an update that Niantic released and which incidentally lead to the dysfunction of most of the third party apps. Poke Vision, the fan favorite among these apps also suffered the setback. So there is a raging thirst in Pokemon Go players all over the world now about the app that can make their lives easier by working on the same principle and as efficiently as Poke Vision. There are no standalone third party apps right now that can help in catching rare Pokemons. What seems to be gaining strength is the number of Pokemon map apps that are being added to the Internet. These are not apps but are websites that are uploading maps at regular intervals of specific areas.
The most popular of these websites is Pokeflex. This website is uploading maps of areas at different intervals, but the biggest downside is that the maps are offering varying quality with the worst quality maps being nearly unintelligible. Another website that is currently finding some favor with Pokemon Go players is Pokefind. This website is a bit different because it functions on your desired Pokemons. It is getting better by the day, though, as the developers are working overtime to make the site responsive and efficient.
Also, not all of these map spraying websites are involved in displaying maps with Pokemons on them. Some like mapokemon.com are concerned more about displaying Poke Stops and gyms instead of displaying Pokemons. If you are in a location which no map is covering then, your last resort is Trulia, the real estate site. This website has information about Pokemon but does not come with any specific locations or timings. This opportunity to get users is not going unnoticed as there are many sites who are taking advantage of the user’s raging desire to catch Pokemon by offering advice and location of rare Pokemons but which involve signing up. Be aware of these websites and try to avoid them.
Another site that is also getting some attention for providing Pokemon locations is Pokecrew. Pokecrew developers are monitoring nearly all available maps on the Internet so that they can come up with the best locations and confirm them by acting as a map aggregator. Pokecrew developers are also planning a new approach in order to help users get the Pokemons and especially the rare ones. By monitoring all the maps that are available on the Internet, the developers are trying to understand the pattern in which the Pokemons are offered by the original developers Niantic. Based on in-depth scrutiny and analysis of the pattern if it is found, a member of the team of Pokecrew stated that they would focus more on anticipating where the next Pokemon would appear instead of running blind and creating maps.
So, there you go with the latest information about how to catch Pokemons and that also rare ones using map websites from the Internet directly because the way Google and Niantic are shutting down the third party apps it does not look like they are going to be here much longer.
