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.
