Map Information


I see no Monsters on the map!

The map is probably offline. Wait a few minutes and check again. If you're still having issues, check our Facebook page to see if anything has been posted. If not, you can try sending a message to the page.

Why can't I see Pidgey, Ledyba, Poliwag, Hoothoot (and more)?

The 20 most common Monsters have been filtered out. Having users loading these all the time simply takes too many of our precious resources.

The map doesn't cover my area. Can you just make it like.. 20 meters wider?

No. That sounds a bit harsh, I know, but it takes a lot of time to change the area, even just a little bit. You can follow our Facebook page, I will post a status when I'm enlarging areas.

I went out to find a Monster but it wasn't there even though the map said so!

The map isn't as perfect as we want it to be, sadly. There's no way to find out exactly when a Monster is despawning, so we have to use a lot of math to try and guess it. And even though this method is very accurate, it isn't exactly perfect. Sorry about that.

Can you add a map for my City?

Maybe. You can request a map for your area here. This is only for new maps and not enlargement.

I found a Monster on the app but I can't see it on the map?

Some Monsters can't be detected by the scanner because they're a special kind of spawn. This is for example Monsters from Stops.
