The problem with Pokemon Go is that the map it provides does not filter out the Pokemons that are already present in a user’s database or Pokedex, as it is called. So, from the very beginning of the game, this has been a very persistent problem that users have complained about. It is natural because when you think of it, it is really frustrating when you travel for a distance and then you find a Pokemon that you can catch, but one which is already there thus making your effort completely futile. Soon after the uproar about this anomaly that the Pokemon Go official app faced, third party apps started arriving on the horizon with solutions in them. While some like Poke Radar and Poke Mesh focused on finding and filtering Pokemons around the user’s locality, others like Razer Go incorporated a chat messenger into the gaming app which was absent by default. Smart Poke is something like the former.
The game is really simple to play with it being based on the former cartoon TV show called Pokemon. Like the show the game also became an instant hit because it gives users a way to live the fantasy of being a gym trainer which they had been harbouring since the days of the cartoon show. The hero of the show was a boy named Ash Ketchum who roamed about looking for Pokemons and catching them in order to make himself more powerful and gain badges from gym fights. The game is the same here with the user taking on the role of Ash and roaming the streets in search of Pokemons to catch and then playing a part in developing them to become more powerful. But as previously mentioned, the app features a map which shows all Pokemons that are near a user irrespective of whether it is already in the user’s inventory or not. This, in turn, led to a great confusion as users were lead to the same Pokemons over and over again. It is also the point where the third party apps like Smart Poke came in.
What is Smart Poke and how to use it?
Smart Poke is a third party application that can be used in conjunction with Pokemon Go in order to serve many purposes, the most significant of which is finding Pokemons by filtering. Users can let the app know what Pokemons they already possess and the ones they desire. Once this information is fed into the app, the app only searches for those Pokemons and lets the user know if one of them is nearby by sending a push notification. It is of great help because then the users do not have to keep the app open, and therefore, they can also conserve their phone batteries.
An alarming news that came about a few days ago, however, was that the latest Pokemon Go update would have some algorithms which would disable the third party apps. Following a public uproar, the developers seem to have changed their mind, and third party apps seem to be working just fine. There is, however, that fear that all these apps are on borrowed time because Google is also up in arms against these sites that are unofficial and help users in cheating to get ahead in the game. It has been actively deleting such third party apps from its own Play Store and rest assured Niantic will soon follow suit.
