Pokemon Go players have been facing the three steps glitch lately, which has left players irritated in their Pokemon tracking process. We have already provided our readers with a proven guide to bypass the three step glitch a couple of days ago. Now, a Reddit user developed a method of accessing Pokemon Go‘s API data which reveals the exact location of every nearby Pokemon by using Google Maps.
Reddit user Ahmed Almutawa, better known by his username waishda, came up with the method of getting access to the game’s data by using some side programs. A browser add-on which has the ability to access the servers of Pokemon Go using a Pokemon Trainers Club account and retrieve information about the whereabouts of the Pokemon has been developed by Almutawa.
Players with some basic knowledge about Python coding can use this add on easily. Other players can carefully read the instructions provided by Almutawa here. One thing that needs to be kept in mind is that the add on doesn’t work during the game’s peak hours as it is totally dependent on how stable the Pokemon Go servers are.
Almutawa also admitted the fact that his program can be shut down by the developer of the game Niantic at any point in time because it hacks the game’s functionality. He also added that he won’t stop developing the program and will keep trying to make it much easier for the players to use.
Although this method could have a short life, it will definitely help some trainers who have been wandering around in search of Pokemon without any rewards, especially right now as the game’s own location tracker is broken due to the three-step glitch.
Pokemon Go is now available in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and most of Europe.
