This Interactive Pokemon GO Map Lets You Find Pokemon in Real Time
If you're tired of looking all over for the Pokemon you need to catch, this new site will show you just where to look.
Pokemon GO tells its players which Pokemon are nearby, but it doesn't tell you where to look, or how long those Pokemon will be there for. Luckily for all those trainers out there, there's a new website that does just that.
Pokevision is an interactive map that shows you exactly which Pokemon are around a location you specify, and how long they'll remain there. All you need to do is visit the site, type in your location (or drop a pin on the map), and hit scan. You'll be rewarded with the names, locations, and time remaining on any nearby Pokemon. This will be especially handy to keep you from walking far and wide in search of a Pokemon that has little time left before it disappears.
The Pokevision site will work even when the Pokemon GO servers are down, but the site warns that "Scanning will take longer than expected, or fail entirely until the service is restored."
This is just the latest entry in the Pokemon GO craze, which so far includes a Yelp filter, substantial impact on porn searches, and all sorts of craziness.
I've spent more time with my dad in week than the last three months all thanks to this app.
I feel like this is what Pokemon Go hunting will be like now:
Typical, it's under maintenance and I really want to see what Pokemons are in my area (can't afford to play GO since I'm noy under contract)!
There is also pokefind.co (by Ssundae and someone else) set up for people to report finding particular pokemon.
This is really cool, now to find where all the growliths are hiding...
Anybody heard about other similar pokemon maps http://www.pokemonmapping.com/ with google maps targeting for your region? Is it fake? I think not only Pokevision has the data of all locations...
The key to getting the most out of this site is to live in an area where others are using it (this way you can check areas without having to hit the scan button), knowing where spawns happen (i.e., where to scan) and when spawns refresh for each location.
Still wasn't able to find that Lapras that spawned this morning using it. And with the three step bug and the wild goose chase that is tracking things down anyway, I wouldn't blame anyone. Saves you looking like a directionless creep.
