Support PokeAlarm Donate Donate

If you like PokeAlarm, and enjoying seeing updates and new features added, consider donating to us. Donating to PokeAlarm helps cover the costs of running my own maps (which I need to test PokeAlarm) and lets me spend more time working on PokeAlarm instead of on something else.

What exactly is PokeAlarm?

PokeAlarm is a lightweight webserver designed to receive POST requests from your local RocketMap server. It sorts through these request and send your a message via your favorite message service. This could be either a tweet when a rare pokemon spawning down the street, a Telegram message letting you know a lured pokestop only a few minutes away, or a Pushbullet notification letting you know your team's gym has fallen.
