pokemon-go-slackbot

Pokemon-Go-SlackBot is a bot that announces nearby pokemon to channel(s). Pair this bot with a Slack token, a login for Pokemon Trainer's Club, and a latitude/longitude position to have a helpful Pokemon announcement in any channels you want.

Warning: Since api usage is a bannable offense, don't be surprised if the account is banned after awhile. I suggest using a fake throw away Pokemon Trainer's Club account.

Installation

Configuration file (JSON)

{
    "username": "Pokemon Trainer's Club username",
    "password": "Pokemon Trainer's Club password",
    "token": "slack token",
    "name": "name",
    "channels": ["channel"],
  "exclude": [21, 16, 17],
    "latitude": 38.632699,
    "longitude": -90.207765
}

Running the bot

You must ensure that you log into Pokemon Go at least once with that account - a Trainer's Club account does not mean you have a Pokemon Go account.

Warning: It seems that cloud provider IP address ranges are blocked, so you can't use AWS with this.

Be sure to use the bot-name that you provided slack for that API token. Also, bots will not auto-join rooms - you must invite them into the room before they can post to it.,
