Poké Radar: A Pokémon Hunting App to Help You Find Any Pokémon in Pokémon GoPosted on July 20th, 2016 | No comments
Released in most regions of the world in July 2016, Pokémon Go (stylized as Pokémon GO) has been fast spreading around the world. It is a free-to-play location-based augmented reality mobile game developed by Niantic for iOS and Android devices. Players could travel between the real world and the virtual world of Pokémon with Pokémon GO for iPhone and Android devices. However, Pokémon Go suffers from a few major issues — the most important being that no one knows where to find specific Pokémon. It’s been part of the fun of the game to get the thrill of the hunt, but knowing nowhere to find desired Pokémon would burn you out. Imagine that you could catch when Pidgey for hundreds of times but find no place to hunt Pikachu, what would you feel?
Now, you get a solution to make things easier. You can get the Poke Radar, a community-driven Pokémon finding tool that allows players to search for Pokémon and submit their findings when they run across Pokémon anywhere in the world.
The Pokémon finding tool will display Pokémon on Google Maps for an instant preview. It is currently available both on the web and as a mobile app. Unfortunately, if you visit the website, you will see some error notices because of the wild popularity of the game and big traffic to this site. But you can visit this app on iTunes app store. It should be noted that currently only iOS version is available. The Android version is still on the way out. Therefore, Android device owners have to wait a while.
It’s quite easy to use this Pokémon finding app. After you download this app on your mobile phone (if you have multiple iOS devices, you can transfer app from iPhone to another iOS device without the need to download it again), tap the arrow button in the bottom right corner to zoom in on your current location to see which Pokémon have reportedly been spotted around you. This requires you to open the location authority on your iPhone. Then open this app, you will find all Pokémon around you.
There is a little trick to make Pokémon hunting more efficient with this app. The developer has enabled people to vote up or down a Pokémon location to proof it’s not a troll. When you see a location with a 100% approval rating, it’s probably worth checking out. If it’s below 50%, you might not want to waste your time.
Since some players suspect that some Pokémon will appear only at certain time of the day, this app will keep track of the time a Pokémon is found (day or night). Upon this, players would probably find out some rules of Pokémon’s show-up.
This Poke Radar would be a nice shot if you’re sick of catching the same Pokémon all the time and wandering aimlessly to find new creatures. The Android app will be available soon according to the developers.
