Pokémon Go Nearby Tracker Returns

Niantic Labs has rolled out a new update for Pokémon Go that includes a new nearby Pokémon tracking feature. The removal of the broken “three-step” tracking feature, which allowed players to track pocket monsters in their vicinity, became a bone of contention for many avid players, with some vowing to abandon the game over its absence. Niantic is hoping that new feature will assuage disgruntled Pokémon hunters enough to protect the game’s booming popularity.

The new tracking system shows players which Pokémon are situated at Pokéstops close by, and can even guide you to them on the map:
