New hack locates every Pokemon on Google Maps

Pokemon Go: Google Maps hack makes it easier than ever to find Pokemon

Smiley faceNEW DELHI: If you are a hardcore Pokemon Go fan who's always in the search of Pokemon, then this new-found tool is just for you. A developer has found a way to use Google Maps to show the location of all the Pokemon, gyms, and items at individual Pokestops. The developer Ahmed Almutawa, as per a post on Reddit, was able to take out the raw data from the augmented reality game and lay it out on Google Maps. The developer also posted the project on GitHub.


NIANTIC COULD STOP DEVELOPMENT AT ANY TIME

The Pokemon Go craze is in full swing, with more than 30 million players hunting Pokemon around the world. However, it might be tough to find new Pokemon to add to your roster, and not everybody has time to walk around town hoping to encounter missing characters. Thankfully, there’s an app for that – install Poke Radar right now if you need help catching Pokemon. But if that’s not enough, then you should be aware of another cool trick that uses Google Maps to point you to Pokemon near you.

Yes, you can call it cheating. But it gets the job done, especially if the “Nearby” feature breaks down, which is the way to find Pokemon inside the game.

Since it's a hack, the developer has also warned that the game developer, Niantic, might block the tool in future.



Recently, two hacker groups claimed to have taken several servers of Pokemon Go offline using DDoS attacks.


If you want to give the map a try to look for rare Pokemon, now’s the time to do it. There’s always the chance that Niantic will block this kind of hack in a future update.
