The Silph Road Pokemon Go Nest Atlas v2.0 has launched and it is an incredible well system.
Pokemon nests in Pokemon Go are the holy grail. Niantic as placed locations inside Pokemon Go where Pokemon spawn on a regular basis in high numbers. There is no official explanation about Pokemon Nests from Niantic, but the popular Silph Road Pokemon project has put a lot of effort into the research of nests in Pokemon Go.

Over the weekend the Sliph Road Global Nest Atlas v2.0 has been released. The map provides locations of verified Pokemon nests around the world. The information is sourced by users (travelers) of the atlas. Niantic has recently changed the nests. The so called nest migrations left the nest locations intact, but changed the Pokemon found at many nests. There have been two migrations so far. The new nest atlas has features to keep track of migrations now, in case Niantic is changing things up again.
Pokemon trainers are already using the Sliph Road Global Nest Atlas to plan day trips to nests and catch the Pokemon available at that nest. Pokemon nests are becoming a travel destination. Nests are often located at parks. In the video below the Silph Road executives make a trip to Battery Park in New York, which is a nest for rare Dratini that evolve into the very powerful Dragonite. The video explains everything you need to know about Pokemon Go nests in great detail.
The Silph Road guys developed a very detailed classification of what is a Pokemon Nest. Pokemon that spawn frequently at specific terrains, water locations and regions are not nests. So far only base form Pokemon have been spotted at nests.
The Silph Road Pokemon Nest Atlas is available as web service here. You need a reddit account to log in. There will be an app soon of the Global Nest Atlas.
The Silph Road was founded months before Pokemon Go launched by two young guys identify themselves as Moots and Dronpes. It's a community for trainers to connect and eventually trade Pokemon. The Silph Road center of activity is on reddit. The sub-reddit has close to 200,000 subscribers.
As long as Niantic is not rolling out the Pokemon tracker feature in the app to all trainers, here is a list of available Pokemon Go maps, trackers and notifiers. Using any 3rd party Pokemon Go software can get your account permanently banned.
