Pokemon Go Spawn Points Changed Again
 

Reports come in that Niantic has removed known Pokemon spawn points and added new ones.

Niantic has just shuffled again spawn points. With no real-time tracker available, trainers have pin pointed regular spawn points near their base. Over the past hours many trainer saw their home spawn points disappear. Some reports say that they have spotted new spawn points.

Update: The spawn point change has turned into a full nest migration. The Silphroad announced the official 5th Great Migration of Nest. The Silphroad Nest Atlas needs updating again.

Niantic has been migrating nests periodically and also changing the locations of spawn points. Trainers have to adjust again to the situation and try to find new spawn points. Equipped only with Sightings this is a time consuming job. On top of that you cannot drive to find new spawn points as Niantic stops Pokemon from spawning when you move faster than 30mph. 

Earlier we reported that Nick from the Pokemon Go tutorial Youtube channel Trainer Tips believes that Niantic is putting to much focus on making Pokemon Go interesting but not fun to play. Changing spawn points keeps the game interesting, but is it fun for trainers? I doubt it. Based on the sentiments on the posts on reddit, trainers are disappointed to lose their nearby spawn points. "Yeah my rural spawn points are gone. I posted about this in the megathread at 655am, saying that as of 630pm last night the only 2 spawns within 3 miles of my house were there, and as of 635am eastern this morning they're gone. Has anyone committed suicide yet and left a note blaming niantic? just curious," posted NibblesMcGiblet.

You can chime into the discussion of added spawn points and removed spawn points on reddit. Real-time Pokemon Go trackers will work the earliest again this weekend.

The creator of FastPokeMap will try again to finalize the new Pokemon Go API this weekend. He is not working on the demanding reverse engineering during the week as he has a day job. Read the latest on making FastPokeMap work again.

Pokemon Go launched July 6 amidst unprecedented hype. Pokemon Go has dropped dramatically in the number of players, but the games was so popular that the remaining user base is still huge and bigger than other popular mobile games. Pokemon Go had 15.4 million weekly active users according to a report early October. This is 4 times as many as Clash of Clans. More Pokemon News.
