Pokemon Go Alternate IV Tools Update

pokemon_go_IVSadly PokeAdvisor is still down but in the mean time here are some new tools. This was going to be one tool but as updates roll in I ended up with 3.

 

 

 

IV Calculator for Pokemon GO

Found a new tool that helps calculate IV since Niantic disabled PokeAdvisor’s API access. In some ways its more awesome than PokeAdvisor in that it does not violate terms and conditions and that is a simple screen overlay. This one is not a 100% accurate nor does it provide hidden values but it gets you in the ball park in a fairly easy fashion.

This one is an Android App called IV Calculator for Pokemon GO. IV Calculator provides the tool as a screen overlay and as you can see below it is very close to the values provided by PokeAdvisor.

And before I can even finish writing this MrsRedBeard finds more

GoStats

GoStats is an app for android that appears to use your login credentials to pull stats from Niantic. The end of the video below talks about it.

PoGoBag

Ok so PoGoBag looks a lot like PokeAdvisor and appears to operate in the same fashion. I have a screenshot but I also got the following message so I’m not sure what their status is at the moment.

Robotics Demonstration

I’ve been giving robotics demonstrations to an Interfaith Summer camp being held by the ITSSM Interfaith Center while sharing some love for the AR Innovation Hub. The Hub has been such a blast to volunteer for and interact with and in addition they are always willing to help.

I wanted a way to demonstrate and provide immersion for children to learn a little about robotics so I threw this together. It’s not pretty but it sure is effective. Upon request I’m willing to write up details on the components, wiring as well as share the code used.

In addition I also toted along the R2D2 trashcan that my daughter and I built. This was a huge hit but also caused a mess when the children used R2 to transport popcorn.
