Why Niantic Should Release A ‘Pokemon Go’ Tracking Update First Before Killing Third-Party Tracker and Scanner Apps

Pokemon Go updates are coming steadily but the most awaited (and needed) feature has yet to be included in them: the tracking system.

Niantic Crackdown on Third-Party Trackers and Scanners

On Monday, the Pokemon Go Hub noticed that third-party trackers GO Scan and FastPokeMap have stopped working altogether.

According to the outlet, GO Scan has officially given up the fight after Niantic imposed more “technical difficulties” to the app which basically means that all of their IP addresses have been banned.

Because of this, GO Scan has officially signed off and bid farewell to their loyal users over the sub-Reddit /r/pokemongodev.

Like GO Scan, FastPokeMap have also said its goodbyes last week after Niantic released another update that enabled reCAPTCHA that locks all third-party apps out of the game.

It’s not just FPM that was shutdown, every app/site just died. We have to reverse the api again. #unknown6team

Of course, many others are still trying to techno-geek their way over these obstacles thrown at them by The Pokemon Company.

Aside from that, players are still looking for alternative trackers and scanners to help in playing Pokemon Go which brings to light the question: When will the Pokemon Go tracking system be rolled out?
