How to Create a Pokemon Map

How to Create a Pokemon Map

Pokemon Go is one of the most fun games of the franchise since it uses AR/VR technology for an immersive experience. If you and your friends love playing Pokemon Go, there’s an easy way for you to impress them.

You can make a map of your area that highlights all the Pokemon, gyms, lures, and Pokestops in the area.

It takes ten minutes to do and can also help you discover Pokemon you may not have come across in your area yet. 

How to Create a Pokemon Go Map

Step #1: Create an Account

You must start by making a Pokemon Go account. You can install the game on your phone and make it on the app or visit https://club.pokemon.com/us/pokemon-trainer-club/sign-up/ and sign up.

You must use a new account to do this since there is a risk of the company banning your account for violating the terms of service. It’s important to note that you will need to log into your account and accept the terms and conditions before you move on to the next step.

Step #2: Deploy the Map to a Server

When your account is ready, visit https://github.com/PokemonGoMap/PokemonGo-Map. You will find a blue “Deploy to Jelastic” button when you scroll down on the page. Click it, and follow the guidelines to deploy a new server to Jelastic. 

Bear in mind that you may need to click on the button again, depending on your browser and other configurations.

Using Jelastic is against the game’s Terms of Service, so do this at your own risk. If you choose to use this tool, make sure the account you’re using is not connected to your main Pokemon Go account.

Fill out the registration form and change the service provider to one that works. Then, enter the following details to configure the map:

AUTH_SERVICE: Your Pokemon Club Account

Pokemon Club USER: Your account’s username goes here

Pokemon Club PASSWORD: Your account’s username goes here 

YOUR LOCATION: Enter your neighborhood here but don’t use your home address 

STEPS AWAY: Enter any value between 4 and 7 here 

GOOGLE MAPS API KEY: AIzaSyDd2–8JfUbP5883DV7NoOBaK6KIPEb-MSk 

ENVIRONMENT: Your server’s URL will appear here. Once the link is live, you can use the existing environment name or enter your own.

After entering these details, click “Install.” You will need to wait for a few minutes before the server environment is ready to use. When the map is ready, you can click the “open in browser” button to view your map.

Step #3: Add the Server’s Location to the Database

Visit https://live.luresquad.com/ and click on the plus button on the bottom right of the page. The “Add a New Map” screen will appear, and you must enter your location and the server’s URL from step #2 on this screen.

Adding your map to the database will allow other players to see the Pokemon in the area using your map.

To see the Pokemon, gyms, and other legend items on the map, press the “Options” button on the top-right of your map and toggle the items you want to see.

Step #4: Share the Pokemon Map 

You can send your map’s URL to your friends, and they will be able to see the Pokemon in your area.

It’s important to note that in late 2016 Niantic implemented limits on API access, and this method of building a Pokemon map will no longer work. The company has also implemented sophisticated techniques to ban accounts that violate the TOS. Using your main account for this purpose will likely get you banned.

How to get Vaporeon in Pokemon Go

How to Get Vaporeon in Pokémon GO?

Eevee has always been the most desired Pokémon in the anime and the game as well.

It is one of the greatest Pokémon with seven different forms of evolution and seven different categories. 

Nevertheless, these original Eeveelutions cannot be found in the woods. Your Eevee can only be upgraded using Eevee candies and a few tricks.  

Vaporeon

This article will walk you through the tips and tricks you need to know for evolving Eevee into Vaporeon.

Pokémon GO Eevee Evolution is one of the best things you can experience in the game. Glaceon, Umbreon, Espeon, Vaporeon, Jolteon, and Leafeon are the original forms of Eevees evolution. You cannot find them in the woods. So, how to get the evolved forms Eevee?

Like most other Eevee evolutions, you need to use the name trick or lure modules to get Vaporean.

To get the evolved forms of Eevee, you need to use the Name Trick. Using this trick can evolve Eevee to any of its original evolutionary forms. You have to change the initial name of Eevee with the evolution names and hit the evolve button. It is that easy.

However, there are other evolution methods for evolving Leafeon, Glaceon, Umbreon, and Espeon, like the Lure modules and buddy trick.

That’s about it, now let’s understand things in detail:

Vaporeon:

Vaporeon evolves from Eevee when the cute Eevee has exposed the water stone.

Vaporeon is water-type Pokémon that has physical traits of both ground and water Pokémon.

Let us understand the Physiology and abilities of Vaporeon in detail:

Physiology:

Vaporeon shares some traits from both ground and water creatures. The body of Vaporeon has a light-blue shade with a white ruff around its neck. It has creamy and yellowish ears, which appear to be finely made of webbing on the sides of its head and one at the top.

Vaporeon showcases blue ridges that run down to its spine’s length and goes on to its tail. Its tail looks pretty similar to the tail of a dolphin or a whale.

Vaporeon’s molecular structure is close to water, and when the sun’s rays fall on it at altered angles, its body glitters. Vaporous boasts about its slender and graceful body; moreover, it adapts to many aquatic regions to swim faster.

It has a feline-like feline structure, with a tiny muzzle and with a triangular nose.

Abilities:

Vaporeon uses a unique ability called Water Absorb. When a Vaporeon uses this ability, it can absorb almost any water type moves and heal itself. It is highly adapted to aquatic life, and it can even breathe underwater.

Vaporous can melt themselves into the water and can disappear within seconds. It has mastery over the water molecules.

It can detect water and moisture with the help of its fin, and when you see the fin jitter, it means it is going rain after some time.  

Statistics:

Vaporeon’s total statistical score is 525.

It has a hit point of 130, the attack power of 65, defense of 60. The special attack is 110, while the special defense is 95.

It is fast and has a movement speed of 65.

Its special attacks are known as Water Gun, Water Pulse, Muddy Water, and Hydro Pump.

The Name Trick:

In Pokémon GO, the nickname trick is the most trusted trick to evolve your Eevee.

The game strictly follows the mainstream of the anime, and hence Eevee can only evolve with the help of Eevee candy. Vaporeon, Jolteon, and Flareon are the three significant evolutionary forms of Eevee.

You can always use this name trick to evolve your Eevee to the specific form you want. However, you can use it only once.

How Does This Work?

This trick is all about assigning a specific name to your Eevee.

Let me break down the procedure into simple steps, which will guarantee your Eevee’s evolution.

Step 1: Go to your inventory or Pokedex and select Eevee.

Step 2: Change the name of Eevee to Rainer so that Eevee can evolve into Vaporeon.

Step 3: After changing the name, hit the evolve button to complete the process.

And that’s about it.

To get the specific evolution forms, you need to use certain nicknames.

Nicknames That Guarantee Eevee Evolutions:

  • Jolteon – to get Jolteon to rename Eevee to Sparky.
  • Umbreon – rename Eevee to Tamao and evolve it to Umbreon.
  • Flareon – renaming Eevee to Pyro evolves it to Flareon.
  • Vaporeon – change Eevee’s name to Rainer to get Vaporeon.
  • Glaceon – to get Glaceon to rename Eevee to Rea.
  • Espeon – rename your Eevee to Sakura to make it evolve into Espeon.
  • Leafeon – change the name to Linnea to make it evolve into Leafeon.

The nicknames of the original evolutions like Glaceon, Umbreon, Espeon, Vaporeon, Jolteon, and Flareon are about the Eevee brothers.

Note:

This trick is one of the sure-fire ways to update Eevee to a form you want, and you can use this only once in the game.

The Lure Module:

After the massive update in May 2017, the Pokémon Company introduced a set of evolution items known as Lure Modules. These are to be activated at the pokestops. When activated, it remains active for 30 minutes.

There are three types of lure modules you will get to see in the game:  

Mossy Lure:

When you activate the mossy lure, it begins to attract all the grass-type Pokémon around.

Glacial Lure:

When you activate the mossy lure, it begins to attract all the water and ice-type Pokémon.

Magnetic Lure:

The same goes with this one too, and the only difference is; when you activate the magnetic lure, it starts to attract all electric-type, rock-type, and Steel-type Pokémon.

These lure modules work efficiently, and if you are lucky enough, you may have an encounter with an Exotic Pokémon.

These lures come in handy evolving Eevee into Leafeon, Glaceon.

Note:

Once you activate the lure modules, do not leave the place. Stay in range. Then only you will be able to catch Pokémon.

The Verdict:

The Name trick is among the best sure-fire methods that can guarantee your Eevee’s evolution to that particular form you want. The name trick asks you to rename your Eevee with its evolution names like (Rainer for Vaporeon) and hit the evolve button. It is that easy. Also, you have the buddy trick under your sleeve. Besides, to evolve Eevee to other forms, you like Glaceon and Leafeon and use the lure modules.

About the nickname trick, it is for one-time use. After using, you cannot use the same method again, but if you wish, you can always trade Pokémon with other players or your friends. And don’t forget to keep the deal fair and square when trading.

Good luck, Trainer!
