We all know how hard it is to locate a Pokemon that is near us or maybe the Pokemons that we have on our respective specific locations are just common or the the same kind. Here's way on how to view these Pokemons at a bigger picture.

Literally a bigger picture for "Pokemon GO"

It literally shows an entire map of where different Pokemons and how long that specific Pokemon will be there. Apparently PokeVision has taken information or data from Niantic "Pokemon GO" servers and integrated that data to show those Pokemons in Google Maps.

"It uses the Niantic API to grab the location of all Pokemon near your (or your selected location) and display them on the map in real-time; this means if it is displayed on the map, you can go out and catch them! Note: Rarer pokemons have a shorter appearance time so they might despawn; make sure to be quick and keep an eye on their timers!" A statement from Pokevision's FAQs on their website.

Does it even work just as advertised in the real "Pokemon GO" game?

As stated in the report of TechInsider, "We were highly skeptical of PokéVision, so we decided to try it ourselves. (Spoiler: it worked like magic.)" They also praised the "Pokemon GO" tool "The cool thing about PokéVision is that it works anywhere "Pokémon GO" works around the world. It's a brilliant way to see where the Pokémon you want to catch are spawning either in your city or somewhere you're traveling to."

It does make the game seem easier and gives the "Pokemon GO" trainers job faster in locating where exactly a Pokemon is in the area instead of wandering around cluelessly guessing. It also turns out that the nearby tab in "Pokemon GO" is faulty as it shows that all Pokemons are 3 feet away from the "Pokemon GO" trainer no matter how far it actually is.
