"Pokemon Go" has a reputation that was somewhat stained in the past due to the lack of a proper tracking system within it. Not only does the absence of it cause players to look for alternative means, but it also makes them viable for banning due to the misinformation of the restricted third-party apps.

Moreover, "Pokemon Go" fans are unable to go for their supposed goals such as finding their desired Pokemon and target gyms. This seems to have been changed by some who find the need for a tracker to be severe and under time pressure. A recent announcement of a beta has finally come to at least try out something to resolve such predicaments.

A Reddit user named robisaks posted his open and closed beta for "Pokemon Go," but for the time being, is still only available to Android devices respectively. The said tracker comes with Push Notifications, as in the past, players had trouble looking for gyms even with trackers. One of the catches is that players are to be close to a gym physically to add gyms into the system, though there are no countermeasures if the players are to falsify their location.

In the same manner, "Pokemon Go" tracking may have been improved by Niantic themselves, according to The Gamers Drop. After announcing the Nearby Pokemon tracker not too long back, some areas already have their trackers up and running, starting with those west of the Mississippi River except Alaska and Hawaii. Canada has British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and the western parts of Ontario, whereas Australia comfortably has all their states gifted.

Some fans can agree that this move by Niantic is beneficial for all "Pokemon Go" players, though there are complaining about the inefficiency of the tracker across PokeStop-scarce locations. This may be one concern that Niantic needs to look into, but until then, keep it locked here at GamenGuide for further news and updates.
