Niantic has struck again at another popular app that was enriching the Pokémon GO experience. Now, you can debate all you want until the end of time on if Pokémon trackers are fair play or not, but it would be beyond comprehension why anybody would have a problem with the latest victim of this purge.
PokéAdvisor was created with the intention of further organizing the fanbase. It provided a final look at a full Pokédex, a much more complete breakdown of trainer statistics, leaderboards, and most importantly, an IV calculator that showed players the full potential of the Pokémon they catch.
Because, you know, we don’t want to waste Stardust on a dud Pokémon that can’t progress to its full potential. That stuff doesn’t come easy.
But one again, we’re having our parade rained out by a company who would rather see the world burn than be defied. Sure, it might play politics and fall back on its half-truth about third-party services ruining the server quality, but at the end of the day, there is going to be nobody else to point at when it finds the community torn to shreds and no longer interested in its product.
PokéAdvisor’s creators have posted their attempts to get the website reconnected to the game on Reddit, and they have received universal support. However, just like Pokévision, we all know that the end game is going to be Niantic’s way or the highway. The community is just trying to help make this the best experience it can be.
Man, I’m going to go dig out my copy of Pokémon Red now. Nobody to complain about or stop me from cloning Rare Candies that way.
