Last week, Niantic Labs CEO John Hawke hinted in an interview that certain Pokemon locating services would more than likely be shut down in the near future.
Come Saturday, one of the most popular websites, Pokevision.com said that it was “currently unavailable”. The service saw an explosion of usage with 27 million unique users logging in over a 5 day period. He originally created the app because it was hard for users to track Pokemon in its current form. The broken footstep tool has now been completely removed in the latest Pokemon GO update.
The PokeVision Twitter account tweeted out the below. We don’t see it coming back anytime soon.
