As gamers continue to play Pokémon, the need to hunt pocket monsters is stronger than ever. Considering the radar in the mobile app isn’t always reliable, there’s a suitable alternative: PokéVision. Users revealed PokéVision is more accurate and consistent.
Unlike other radars, PokéVision will show the exact location of Pokémon. This is because the app uses Google Maps. A user can type in his address and then find the Pokémon that are nearby.
There’s a timer below each creature showing how long it will be in that spot for. If a player arrives at the location before the time it expires, they are going to have a chance to catch that Pokémon, Business Insider wrote Saturday. It’s especially helpful for players who are seeking specific Pokémon and don’t want to catch any more Pidgeys are Rattatas.
Aside from precision, PokéVision is also good for planning. Since a user can see where dozens of Pokémon are located at any given time, they can make a route of where they want to walk. Considering the time restraint, a player can pick to catch a Pokémon that has the shortest amount of time left in a given location.
The app describes its benefits in the following way, as noted by Inquisitr: “PokéVision is a Pokémon tracker/locator for the mobile game Pokémon Go. It uses the Niantic API to grab the location of all Pokémon near your (or your selected location) and display them on the map in real-time; this means if it is displayed on the map, you can go out and catch them! Note: Rarer Pokémons have a shorter appearance time so they might despawn; make sure to be quick and keep an eye on their timers!”
