How to have Pokémon Go Map in our Gnu / Linux

Pokemon go map

Pokémon Go has revived the pokemania that was born a few years ago in the world of video consoles. To the point that everyone goes out to hunt pokémons, but this task is sometimes tiring and without any fruit. We do not have any pokéradar or any map where the pokémons indicate us that are active.

There is not so far. A user has taken advantage of an exploit that the video game has to create a program called Pokémon Go Map that will be very useful for our pokémon hunt and we can also have it in our Gnu / Linux for free and easy.

Before you can install Pokémon Go Map in our Gnu / Linux We need to have enough libraries installed for the program to work. Thus, we open a terminal and write the following:

sudo apt-get install python python-pip

We must have version 2.7 of Python, so if we have an old version in our repositories, we will have to obtain the version from sources.

Once we have met the requirements, we have to download the Github repository program. We do this through the following command:

git clone

Then we go to the downloaded folder and execute the installation script:

cd /PokemonGo-Map
pip install -r requirements.txt

Once we have done this, we can now log in with our Pokémon Go account and see on Google Maps where the most popular pokémon are appearing, or know which gyms are near us or in a certain city.

For this, if we have a Pokémon Club account, we have to log in like this:

python -u [nombre de usuario] -p [contraseña] -st 10 -k [Google Maps API key] -l "[ubicación]"

IF, on the other hand, we use a Google account, we have to do the following to log in:

python -a google -u [nombre de usuario] -p [contraseña] -st 10 -k [Google Maps API key] -l "[Ubicación]"

In any case, in Location we have to put our location or the one we want to consult. After doing this, to see the map with the pokémon, we have to go to our browser and consult the following address:


On this website we will find the Pokémon Go Map program working and indicating the information we have asked for. As you can see, it is a quick and simple way to locate Pokémon and not have to go for hours on the street looking for Pokémon Useful, don't you think?
