HERE THERE IS THE SCANNERFAG GUIDE FOR DUMMIES v2.5
—Amor vincit omnia—
Written by a stupid Anon who wants to help tards like him
Thanks to ScannerAnon who helped us with his account
STEP 1) Copy this link into your browser: https://www.python.org/ftp/python/2.7.12/python-2.7.12.msi
It will be the installer for Python 2.7.12
Wait until it is totally downloaded, then click for opening it
ATTENTION: If, just because strange things happen, you have already a Python version in your PC, assure it is 2.7.xx and not Python 3.x.x… If it is so, try to un-install it as much as you can.
STEP 2) Install Python: just keep on pressing “Next” and install Python.
If all goes well, the location of Python is C:Python27
+++ATTENTION+++: If the first window is something like “change/repair/remove”, you had installed Python before and it didn’t go good.
Change PC or go to a earlier backup, earlier than Python installation: that thing MUST NOT appear. THAT THING MUST NOT APPEAR.
TRY AS MUCH AS YOU CAN IN ORDER TO HAVE A CLEAN INSTALLATION.
THE CLEAN INSTALLATION SAYS “install for all users/install just for me”, NOT “repair/change/remove”
STEP 3) Copy this link into your browser: https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py
It will be the “pip” installer for Python
Wait until it is totally downloaded, and do not open it. Just click save (this is just a security check)
STEP 4) Go to the Download folder in your computer, double click on get-pip (it may be called get-pip.py, too: it is normal)
It will open a “cmd” window: let it work. First, it will un-install the outdated version of pip, then install the new one
DO NOT CLOSE ANYTHING UNTIL THE CMD WINDOWS DISAPPEARS: it will do it, just wait a little.
If all goes well, there is a folder called “Scripts” into C:Python27. DO NOT CANCEL ANYTHING.
If there is nothing, uninstall Python and try again.
STEP 5) Copy this link into your browser: https://github.com/AHAAAAAAA/PokemonGo-Map/archive/master.zip
If it does not work, click on “Download”, the green button on the right, at this link: https://github.com/AHAAAAAAA/PokemonGo-Map
It will install a .zip file.
Unzip it and extract ALL FILES in a new folder called “Pokemon GO” or whatever you want to call it. Just be sure to know how it is called.
If I may give you a piece of advice, just call it “Pokemon” or “Pokemon GO”: keep it into mind.
ATTENTION: DO NOT EXTRACT THE WHOLE ZIP.
There is a folder called Pokemon-Go-Map: inside there are some files and folders like “.github”, “templates”.
Extract those folders and the files.
STEP 6) Copy the file “requirements.txt” (it is above two “transform” files) and paste it into C:Python27Scripts (the SCRIPTS folder in your PYTHON27 folder)
STEP 7) Press SHIFT (the key under CAPS LOCK) and RIGHT-click on C:Python27
STEP 8) Choose the “open command window here” option
STEP 9) Write this thing into the console: setx PATH C:Python27. If all went well, it should say something about a well-done operation or something like that. Then, close the window.
STEP 10) Press SHIFT (the key under CAPS LOCK) and RIGHT-click on C:Python27Scripts
STEP 11) Choose the “open command window here” option
STEP 12) Write this thing into the console: pip install -r requirements.txt
ATTENTION: It will may take several minutes to install everything
ATTENTION: If it fails to load something and red letters appear, there is something wrong and you will have to restart everything
ATTENTION: If it all went well, there may be green letters (I saw just bunch of sub-programs being installed successfully, all may happen)
STEP 13) Go to this link: https://www.pokemon.com/us/pokemon-trainer-club/login
and create a new account, with its password.
ATTENTION: KEEP BOTH ACCOUNT NICKNAME AND PASSWORD IN MIND
STEP 14) Do you remember the “PokemonGO” folder we created during Step 5? Press SHIFT (the key under CAPS LOCK) and RIGHT-click on it.
Choose the “open command window here” option, then.
STEP 15) Write this thing into the console: python example.py -u USERNAME -p PASSWORD -l “xx.xxx yy.yyy” -st 10
USERNAME can be the one you chose for your account or scanningpokemon
PASSWORD can be the one you chose for your account or 123456
xx.xxx and yy.yyy are coordinates (check the example below for getting coordinates)
+++ HOW TO GET COORDINATES WITH GOOGLE MAPS +++
A) Search your position on Google MAPS
B) A RED ARROW will appear in the exact position you are at the moment
C) Now, click on a place VERY CLOSE to the RED ARROW
D) If all went well, there will be a little circle with a GREY ARROW inside it
E) Therefore, there will be a small White box in the bottom part of your browser window. Last two numbers are coordinates.
Let’s make an example:
There is a member called scanningpokemon and its password is 123456 (Thanks, ScannerAnon!) We will use his credentials, if we do not have our own Trainer Club Account
I chose a random place in France, whose coordinates are 48.299734, 4.090735
You can see where you are on Google Maps and click into the map: it will provide you a window like this one: https://i.imgur.com/qoN8p3Z.png
(I suggest switching to “Earth” mode)
Therefore, the total message will be: python example.py -u scanningpokemon -p 123456 -l ” 48.299734 4.090735″ -st 10
+++ ATTENTION +++
ATTENTION: You can use scanningpokemon as user and 123456 as a password, thanks to Anon
So, the message will be python example.py -u scanningpokemon -p 123456 -l ” coordinate1 coordinate2″ -st 10
ATTENTION: the symbol before coordinates in not a 1, number ONE, but a little “l”, the l as in “little”
ATTENTION: coordinates must be written without a comma between them
ATTENTION: Coordinates MUST have the ” “: so, it will be “coordinate1 coordinate2”. There are no other options
ATTENTION: -st 10 checks a radius around you: the more bigger the value next to “-st” is, the farther the program will check
(There are more options, but essentially you only need these ones. You may find more on https://github.com/AHAAAAAAA/PokemonGo-Map)
STEP 16) Wait until some CMD lines are done. It should be saying something like “looping [x]/100”, meaning that the programme has tried “x” times to get Pokemons
ATTENTION: When servers don’t act properly, they may write a bunch of identical lines saying “retrying” because an “api” is failed.
It is normal, even if annoying.
When servers are down, lines of code as “retrying_api_req” and “retrying_get_profile” will appear in loop.
STEP 17) Open Google Chrome and copy this link:
STEP 18) It will give you a map with Pokemons around the designated place whose coordinates were put during step 15 after -l “
If you want to look for another place, press CTRL+C in the CMD window that is open until step 15
