GAME_MASTER Archive

There is a file called the GAME_MASTER that contains statistics regarding just about everything in the game.
This file is updated on a semi-regular basis on the Niantic servers and Pokémon GO downloads it.
It is encoded in a format called "protobuf" to make downloading faster, but there are utilities that will decode it and convert it into a format called JSON. JSON is a format that is easily read by computer code. It can even make sense to a human. (If you are a little geeky.)

Originally I searched the internet to get my hands on as many of the historical GAME_MASTER files as possible. In some cases I found JSON versions but not the original. And frequently those were in a slightly invalid format, so I reformatted them.
Lately I have been copying them from my Android device as there are changes.

In the end, I convert what I have to JSON, then use that to generate the data published in these pages.
Feel free to download what you want by clicking on the links in the table below.

NOTE: If you have a GAME_MASTER file I am missing, or know where I can get it, please let me know.

Just send me an e-mail at pokeeref@gmail.com (The extra 'e' is not a typo. pokeref@gmail.com was already taken. )
