Frequently asked questions
Find all Pokémon near you (or a selected target location) in real time for Pokémon Go. Pokémon nearby will be marked along with their appearance timer on the map. These are real time Pokémon locations, meaning they are currently live and can be found exactly at the marked spots.
Pokémon show up in real time as they are found on the map when your move around. You load everything previously scanned on first visit and constantly get live updates as the PokeEye API receives the data. No refreshes required.
Gyms work like Pokémon, as you move around the map we will load all the gym data we have in the area, if a new gym is found in an area you are currently looking at, it will automatically popup on the map without any interaction on your end.
Pokéstops work like gyms, as you move around the map we will load all the Pokéstops we have in the area, if a new Pokéstop is found in an area you are currently looking at, it will automatically popup on the map.
Click the filter icon in the toolbar located on the top right side on the map to filter out the Pokémon you don't want or do want. You can also hide gyms, pokestops and spawnpoints if wanted.
Why can't you guarantee the accuracy of the Pokémon IV levels?
Niantic, in an attempt to make it harder for scanners, bots and so on to do their thing, made a slight change that gives different IV levels for every player based on their current level.
That means, that the IV level of the Pokémon is based on your level as a player, and unless you have the same level as the player who submitted the data (Highly unlikely), then the IV would be different for you.
Only when you reach the maximum player level of 30, and assuming the account that performs the scan is level 30 as well, can you guarantee that the IV level reported, is what you get. Problem for PokeEye here, is the fact that we can't confirm what level the data was scanned with, as all data are user-contributions.
By clicking the statistics button in the top right corner on the map, you will see detailed statistics over the current map view your looking at. The statistics are based on all findings on PokeEye since the 7th August 2017. You will see total combined statistics for all Pokémon, pokestops, gyms, scans and spawnpoints for the specific area you currently have in the map view
It is possible to hover your mouse over a specific Pokémon in the statistics list to see where that specific Pokémon has spawned in your current map view. Note that we only have history for Pokémon submitted to PokeEye.
