Your opinion about Pokémon trackers "sucking some of the fun out of it" is dead wrong. Howeverengaged with Pokemon Trackers to shutter them absolutely sucked 100% of the fun out of Pokemon Go for a lot of people.
Pokémon Trackers enable players to engage in self-selected, self-directed, emergent gaming behavior. This emergent behavior means that people are having fun playingin ways you never imagined…and you just crippled their fun in favor of making everyone play it "your way".
I urge you and the rest ofto embrace what the Crowd builds – then monetize it. +Niantic and could have made another $10 million dollars this week, if you'd instead embraced the work done by , leveraged it, and posted an official tracker app in the store for a buck.
For me? Racing the clock to catch an unusual Pokemon turns a walk into a jog, and with the stroke of an email (Cease and Desist, maybe?) you stopped tacitly incentivizing gameplay through allowing me (and others) to self-direct my gameplay via PokeVision (I played for 3 hours yesterday, collecting Pidgeys and Rattatas and visiting Pokéstops to refill) and I've walked more in July than I have in 10 years), and you instead incentivized removing the app and going back to playing Pokemon on the DS while I'm sitting on the toilet.
I don't believe that's the intended effect.
