New Pokémon Go maps show you where to catch ’em all – PCWorld

For a game that’s created specifically for mobile devices, many people who play Pokemon Go are turning to the internet instead of apps to find rare creatures. From Google Maps to individually created websites such as Pokemapper, many people wonder if knowing when and where to find your favorites at any given time takes away the magic of discovering the game for yourself.

Key Takeaways:

  • If you’ve been wondering how to find Pikachu, Scyther, Electabuzz, or any other rare Pokémon, you might not have to wait much longer: new crowdsourced Pokémon Go maps are teaching players how to find Pokémon in Pokémon Go.
  • Web pages seem to be the way to go at the moment. There are at least two Android apps to crowdsource Pokemon locations: Map for Pokemon Go: PokemonMap and Pokemap: Find Your GO Pokemons. Neither seem to do the job, according to the app reviews.
  • On the iOS side, Pokemon Go Maps ($1) lets players enter locations, and has a chat tab for sharing other tips and advice. … Gabbermap is a free community-powered map that can help you find anything, but just added a bot named @pokebot to help users find rare Pokémon.

“We’d recommend maps that allow you to enter a specific Pokémon name, then show their locations, as well as displaying a quick guide to what’s around you.”
