This Pokémon Go Hack Extracts Data From The Game To Show Pokémon On Google Maps

Pokémon Go is now perhaps the biggest thing going on in the world of gaming right now, and not just mobile gaming either. Players of Pokémon Go are everywhere, and we expect each and every one of you reading this is either a Pokémon Go player, or you know someone who is. Maybe more than one, probably lots.

With so many people playing, getting a leg up on everyone else can be important, and if you think you need a helping hand finding all of those rare Pokémon, you may want to check out Poke Radar or Gyms and PokéStops locations & Maps For Pokémon Go – apps that use crowdsourcing in order to show you Pokémon, PokéStops and Gyms that are local to you.


But if that’s not enough, how about a solution based around Google Maps, showing exactly where each and every Pokémon is?

By extracting location data from the Pokémon Go app and then tying it in with Google Maps, developer Ahmed Almutawa has been able to create something that the most hardcore of Pokémon Go fans won’t want to miss, no matter how dubious it is when it comes to sportsmanship. Almutawa’s tool can be used to locate Pokémon, Gyms and PokéStops with a little work, which sounds like it might take all the fun away from the game, if you ask us!

Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on your point of view, making this thing work isn’t all that easy.


There are instructions over on Reddit that outline what needs to be done in the quest to “catch ’em all,” but it isn’t for the faint of heart.

Feel free to give it a try and see how you get on, though, and best of luck!
