When you press a pokemon and click view, it zooms out and takes you to this overview map now. The pokemon is in the pink circle I'm guessing?

holy shit

can't wait till they expand this to everyone

if they ever do

I'm guessing it could be more of a slow rollout than anything.

Like how Google used to like pushing updates out in waves.

Toki, it looks like you might be part of some special test group...I don't think it would be a terrible idea for you to actually make a new thread and post what you're experiencing

I know a lot of people don't even read this thread anymore due to tracking issues

This is def huge news

If those screenshots are indeed legit, then it's more than I hoped for. To be honest, for me at least that would actually be more useful than the map-based trackers we have now.

They're directly from my phone...so it's pretty legit.
I WANT TO BELIEVE BUT I'VE BEEN BURNED BEFORE

I haven't really been burned before, but there have been a lot of Pokemon Go-related hoaxes. Please forgive my skepticism, it's nothing personal!

Huh, so it only tracks Pokémon which are near PokéStops? Or...
Nearby is now pokemon near a pokestop.

Sightings is now pokemon that are not near a pokestop. Still seems impossible to track pokemon under Sightings.

that seems to be the case.

thus great for city players (like most things in pokemon go)
and not so great for players without a lot of stuff around them

Hmm... interesting. Well, I can only see a couple Pokéstops on the map while I'm at home, but it's a couple minutes drive to a few places with a lot of them. We'll see how it goes I guess.

Just threw everything I had at a Hitmonlee. At least I got him. Today has run me down on items and I don't see any good chances to get to pokestops anytime soon. Might have to gun for level 22 with a lucky egg to get supplies.

At least the 'sightings' list seems to update correctly, clearing out pokemon as you move away or they despawn and bringing in new ones. Not sure yet if it will sort pokemon based on which ones are closest, but it's definitely improved from the previously broken nearby system.
