Well everybody is privy to the bad news that Niantic and Google have combined forces to bring down the third party apps which worked as assistants to the main app of Pokemon Go. These apps, be it Pokemon IV calculators or Pokemon Go bots have all disappeared due to the sustained and robust action that Niantic and Google have taken and are still engaged in, now. It has been quite a few hectic days for Pokemon Go players who were involved in using these third party apps to get ahead in the game. Frantic searches have been made for all these 3rd party apps, but most of them have been taken down. The biggest problem that has cropped up through this course of action is that all Pokemon Go trackers are currently unavailable which makes it very difficult for players to find Pokemons that they need.
One of the most famous Pokemon Go trackers that became really famous as soon as it was released was PokeVision. This app became a lifeline for many players of Pokemon Go. Its popularity, however, became its curse as it was one of the first apps that was taken off the market by Niantic. Since then, people have been scouring the Internet for such a great Pokemon Go tracker which can perform on a par with PokeVision. I undertook the job of scouring the Internet myself in order to find Pokemon Go trackers that are still online. At the time of writing this article, these trackers were online or at least they seemed to be.

PokeVision Alternatives- active Pokemon Go trackers:
- The first one on this list is Go Radar. This app can still apparently track all the Pokemons that are available in the world. Not only does this app do that but it also sorts out the rarest of the rare Pokemons. It is available for iOS.
- The Pokemon Go desktop map is another service that is still active and is working beautifully. The installation of this software is a bit tricky because you have to download it and then put in your Google Maps key and then open your Pokemon Go. After doing that, you will have to open the Google Maps from a non-Pokemon Go Google account.
- PokeMesh is another app that is still running and is quite popular because along with the Pokemons in the area it also comes with the ability for the user to filter out the Pokemons that he/she does not need.
- The site called pmap.kuku.lu is another one that is still running actively, but it has a significant hindrance that may prove to be insurmountable for users because the site is in Japanese. You may be thinking that Google Translate will help you out, but it has been found after quite a number of times of translation that the map, at least the essential parts, remain in Japanese.
- If Pokemon Go third party maps are not working out for you, then you can use the PokeNest. It is not a live map where you can find Pokemons. It is rather more concerned with finding Pokemon nests, which means that it contains information about frequent spotting of the same Pokemons in a place.
- The Compass for Pokemon is another app that is still active and running but because it has been developed only recently. The developer in his interaction with users has assured that the app will grow and get better features and along with that an iOS version in the near future. Reviews of the app suggest that it is slow in functioning but accurate.
- Like Poke Mesh, SkipLagged is also an app that is carrying a lot of potential. It works similar to Poke Mesh because it also has the ability to filter out the real Pokemons as well as the ones that the user already has. The drawback of this app is that it cannot search for Pokemon throughout the world but only in a particular area around the locality of the user.
- Poke Radar is one of the most popular apps that is still running nowadays. It is available for both Android and iOS, thus highlighting its importance. It is one of those apps that users hope will stay up till the last.
So these are more or less the most popular Pokemon Go trackers that are currently online now, but due to the extreme heat that Google and Niantic have going on around these third party assistant apps, it is very doubtful which app will stay on. There is already a dearth of accurate and fast Pokemon Go trackers, and it is increasing by the day.
There are some other Pokemon Go trackers that also deserve special mention but have not made it to the list because either they have been downloaded by users or because they have already ceased to exist. These include PokePilot, Poke Alert, Poke Rev, Fast Poke Map, and Catch That.
Also, if you consider yourself a tech expert or a computer nerd, then you might be able to setup your own Pokemon Go scanner in your system using a code that has been made available in GitHub. By successfully using that code, if you are able to get your own scanner up and about, then you will receive direct notifications on your PC and accurate ones at that.
