As incredibly fun as it is, Pokemon Go can be a little tedious at times, constantly spawning the same creatures over and over again which you have caught 100 times before. New Pokémon take almost forever to appear and in most cases, the footstep marker doesn’t reduce and leaves you going around the same area in circles until you either give up trying or the Pokémon you are searching for disappears completely. Do not fret though as there is a website dedicated to help you find Pokemon in your area in real time and that website it Pokévision.
Using Niantic’s API, Pokevision scans your area of interest to find Pokémon closest to you. You can then set off to that location and will find the very critter you are looking for in that immediate area. It turns out that each Pokémon has a timer in which you can find them in and will despawn when that time is up. Common Pokémon like Zubat & Pidgey have longer duration periods and spawn often. Other Pokémon that are uncommon or rare have shorter periods and do not spawn very often.
I have used the website myself and the results are indeed promising. I have found the very Pokémon I was looking for in every location that Pokévision states. It is an exceptionally helpful website and while some people may consider it cheating, I find it can be beneficial in organizing Pokémon hunts and make them more fruitful.
If you would like to check out the Pokévision website then feel free to use this link. Type your preferred location into the search bar and then click on the red button to begin searching for Pokémon near the marker. you can also move the marker by double clicking on the map on the area you want to search. Please note that Pokévision is not endorsed by Niantic or The Pokémon Company and could get shut down at any time. There are also times where Servers can be overloaded and the website can have trouble connecting to the servers so even though it is pretty reliable, it is very dependent on the Pokémon Go Servers being operational.
Will you be using Pokévision to make more profiting hunts? Do you think it is cheating and should be shut down? Do you enjoy long walks at the beach?
