Pokémon Go could take further notes from Google Maps to benefit users. In addition to the obvious omissions of notifications, a Google Earth-like view could let you see the real world surroundings of an area to get an idea of what type of Pokémon you can expect there. A location search option within PoGo could allow players to see what Pokémon they can expect when they head to Times Square versus the Eiffel Tower. Pokémon common in one region may be rare in others. A player search system, similar to the recent Pokémon games on Nintendo's handheld consoles, would allow for gamers to search (on a map) for players in foreign areas.
