Reverse Lure Module!
In this project we’ll show you how to find Pokemon with the Raspberry Pi. It looks like a lure module, but instead of attracting Pokemon, it lets you know when they’re close.
It like getting a notification when Pokemon are nearby. This can be really useful, especially when you’re at work or stuck in class. So now you don’t have to keep your mobile device open or keep checking every ten minutes.
Here’s how it works: When a common Pokemon appears, this first LED turns on. The second LED lights up when rare Pokemon are nearby, and when legendary Pokemon show up, the third LED will turn on.
By loading some python code onto the Raspberry Pi, you can connect to the unofficial Niantic Pokemon API and get request when a Pokemon spawns in your area. In the JSON configuration file, you can specify any location.
