Often, trainers will form together raiding groups which hit multiple gyms consecutively. While doing this, tracking the progress of the group and reporting raids becomes cumbersome.
Trains are PokeNav’s attempt to improve coordination, visibility and reporting in discord while these groups are active.
The train feature is designed to help the most with raid hours and events where an optimal route is saved ahead of time. For regular trains it might be easier to create a standard room, as the adminstrative setup effort is higher than a typical raid.
About Raid Trains¶
Trains are simply raid coordination channels with special features and limitations. All raid commands are support with a few exceptions (listed below).
Raid trains will always create channels in discord, you need to disable the feature if you do not want this.
Keep in mind, instead of keeping accurate information about a singe raid at a single gym, trains focus on tracking lists of gyms and where the group is heading.
- Channel and role name for the channel is tied to a title for the raid, not the gym.
- Maintain (add or remove) a list of gyms where the group is heading.
- Tracks the current progress of the raid party.
- Advance to the next gym and auto-reset the raid parties arrival status.
- Automatically estimate arrival times and update these times as you go.
- Save the list of gyms as a route, which can then be loaded for future trains.
- View a list or complete gym list of saved community routes.
- Delete community saved routes.
- Default 4 hour duration.
- Gyms marked as EX eligible in the database are marked as such in the schedule.
- Raid trains may not set a hatch or despawn time.
- Raid trains do not appear in the PokeNav mobile app or pgmap.org (they are discord only).
- Raid trains can only stop at POI marked as gyms in PokeNav.
- No deduplication of train channels.
Commands To Learn¶
Raid coordinators will need to become familiar with the following commands:
$t will start a train in any raid lobby (see the table).
$rt (raid train or route shortened) is the top level command to manage a trains routes.
You can run
$help rt to see the options, or read the table above for an overview.
There are typically shortened aliases for all the commands to make this easier. Notable aliases:
$rt a Gym Nameto add a gym.
$rt r Gym Nameto remove a gym.
$rt nto move to the next gym.
Routes Saving / Re-use¶
Routes are one of the main value adds for the train feature. Use it during special raid events when you hit a known list of gyms by setting up a train and saving the schedule as a route. You can then re-load the route next raid event for a quick setup.
At this time, routes are immutable and uniquely named for your community.
This means that you can only create and delete routes, not modify them. There are no limits to how many routes you can save during the beta. If you need to re-use a name, delete the first route and then save the new route.
