Having a good Pokemon Radar helps a lot when you are hunting for specific Pokemon. Without a radar, it would be like heading into a battlefield without knowing what to expect. We will be reviewing some of the best Pokemon radar detector available on the Internet. These radars will not get you banned as they do not need your Pokemon Trainer login. Here are some of the best Pokemon radar available freely on the Internet.
How radar works?
There are 2 types of radars. The first type will connect to Niantic server API and collects Pokemon information from there. The information such as Pokemon type, spawn time and location will be displayed on the map. The 2nd type depends on user generated suggestions. Some radars incorporate both of the methods on their map. We find the the first detection method as the best as the information proves much more accurate while user generated suggestions are not accurate.
GoRadar is perhaps on the mostly used Pokemon radar by trainers. This radar is quite accurate and pretty much used as a defactor standard for trainers. Goradar.io is available on App and web based. However it only supports Apple IOS app while there is a limit of users for web base GoRadar.io
No Android support yet
Limited web users supported
WhereisPokemon.net is rather new and not so popular yet. This radar is extremely slow but quite accurate. It takes a few minutes for the graph to load. Once loaded it can pinpoint to specific location when filtered.
Filled with advertisements
PokeRadar.io used to be pretty good PokemonRadar. This radar detects Pokemons by Poke Radar Prediction and user generated content. The user generated Pokemon is quite useless. These days the Poke Radar Prediction accuracy for rare Pokemons such as Snorlax and Dragonite has reduced tremendously. We found that it is still accurate for evolution Pokemons such as Dratini and Machop.
Accurate for common Pokemons
Not so accurate for rare Pokemons
Skiplagged used to be one of the best radar available. The loading is fast and it is very accurate. However it has encountered more and more issues recently perhaps due to changes from Niantic. There are also reports that it is not effective in Asian region. This radar is best used when you are in United States or Canada. Pinning to each Pokemon can be troublesome.
Not effective in Asian region
Encountering issues lately
Region exclusive Map
SgPokemap.com is exactly what it sounds like. This map is exclusive for Singapore. We find this map highly accurate for region of Singapore. The rare Pokemon such as Snorlax, Lapras and Exeggutor seems to be highly accurate. This map also remove all the unnecessary Pokemon such as Ratata or Pidgey be default making it highly efficient and fast. Overall we find this map very useful for Singapore trainers
Filter function is highly effective and fast
All the useless Pokemons are removed by default
Locked to Singapore only
Pokevision is one of the very first Pokemon map. This used to be one of the map that everyone uses. However it has been officially disabled by request from Niantic.
