Pokemon Go API

Hi everyone,

Does anyone know if there is any API for Pokemon Go? I'm curious at least to know if any version of an API coming soon, it would be exciting to work on top of it.

Thanks,
LVL 6

No official API and no plans to release one - control of server location entries is part of niantic's commercial aspect of the game.  Unsurprisingly lots of unsupported APIs for monster spawning sites though simply reverse engineered by sending GPS requests to the servers and indexing response locations.

Thanks Kyle that one does work really well but hammers Niantic's login servers because it's so popular (there are a couple of others which are less well known) effectively it's like DDOS for Ninatic as each user of the pokevision site can poll locally every 30 seconds and it pulls co-ords for monsters for about a mile radius, far more than the phone client requests (300ft).  As a result Niantic try to shut them out on a regular basis.  Whether they'll respond to the user demand for mapping and introduce their own web-based equivalent is a dilemma, players are now gaming the system and staying indoors until a local pokemon worth collecting appears on their map rather than the intention that they just wander and see what's out there as a surprise.
