PokeFinder3 will search Pokemon maps (currently Skiplagged), for specified Pokemon of your choice, and send them to PokeSniper2 automatically if you choose. This is different than the autosniper feature of PokeSniper2, as this finds unique Pokemon to snipe at that moment, whereas auto sniper, is likely sniping the same Pokemon as everyone else using that feature at that moment.

It gives you the ability to control the rate at which you snipe, I recommend no less than 90 second delay between snipes, and even up to 3 minutes. Recent information suggests that bans happen after a certain amount of Pokemon are caught. Limiting the rate at which you catch Pokemon is one way to combat this system.

PokeFinder3 also allows you to snipe specific Pokemon you need, however not go over a specified limit, you are able to say, Catch only 1 Charizard, for instance. Unlike autosniper, which will catch everything on PokeSniper.com or whatnot, this can catch anything, even commons! Evolve those Pidgeys ’till your hearts content! Or maybe you just need that one pokemon to fill your collection.

PokeFinder3 helps you to avoid missing snipes (flees), by allowing you to ignore Pokemon that are about to expire. Catchflee is a bad word around here, and this feature of PokeFinder3 helps you to avoid that completely, or you can simply set it to 0 and not ignore anything!

I think the best part of PokeFinder3 is that it will detect if your inventory is full, or if you are out of poke-balls, and automatically stop.

PokeFinder3 will search in all Major Cities; All Pokemon Nests, and even allows you to search your own area if you add your coordinates to the coords.txt You could even edit the coords.txt to ONLY inculde your coords if you want to snipe only locally. Or if you really wanted to go crazy THE WHOLE PLANET!

This can NOT filter by IV nor CP, this just finds the poke and lists the coords found on skiplagged, or send those coords to pokesniper. This will also NOT use the pokesniper MinIV or MinCP, as pokesniper only reads those values for autosniper. This tool sends a manual sniper via commandline. We only get the IV and CP after the attempted catch.

***How to***

To Search:

  1. Download PokeFinder3
  2. Run PokeFinder3! Enjoy!

To Search and Snipe:

  1. Download PokeFinder3 (below)
  2. Download PokeSniper2
  3. Extract PokeSniper2 and configure the user.xml, and device.xml per pokesniper instructions.
  4. Extract PokeFinder3 to the PokeSniper2 folder you just extracted to
  5. Run PokeFinder3! Enjoy!

Advanced users I suggest creating batch files to quickly change between configurations!

THIS IS MY BATCH FILE; simply create a txt file, copy this into it, and change the extension from txt to bat. It will Run PokeFinder3 with html logging, and attempt to Snipe every 3 minutes ignoring pokemon expiring within 6 seconds, infinitly(or until 100 pokemons are caught).

PokeFinder3.exe -s -L 2 -i 6 -m 100 -l -t 180

FIX: While parsing “pokemons” for “abra” returns both “abra” and “kadabra” (possibly others?!)
SUGGESTION: Possibly only snipe 1 of each pokemon from catch list?!?
