over the period of the past two weeks a research was conducted with the hope to make finding Pokémon from Sightings tab easier. Today, we’re proud to announce that our research is complete and proved successful!

Our research proved that you can find Pokémon using just the Ingress map of your nearby area and that the majority of the current spawns is still based on Ingress data. Pokémon spawn on the same places like XM spawns in Ingress, meaning that you can exactly know where a spawn has occurred.
