I nominated a local bowling center and I got a rejection notification saying it's a duplicate. There is currently no spin or gym in the location. Does this mean there's going to be one?
Is there any nearby Pokestops/gyms?
There are POIs that are not visible im PGO. Most of the time, they are visible in other games like Ingress. POIs only go live in PGO, if they fit through a specific system based on the location and locations that are already ingame.
Also, the last Update with lightship seems to messen around with this.
If you can provide a location, someone can check the existance of the Bowling center for you.
Who do I provide with the location? The nearest spin is a Stadium across the street.
You can post location here, and ask someone nice with Ingress account (like LukeAllStars-ING :) ) to check if there is a POI of it visible in Ingress.
But if your nomination is across the street of existing POI in PoGo (stadium, like a few meters of it or even a bit more far away), it's very likely in the same cell as stadium and because of that there seems to be existing POI you can't see. But checking won't hurt for sure, especially if you would like to nominate something else in close area (Pokestop cells are pretty big, so there might be more thing you would like to nominate in the same cell, it's best to check if they're not already added).
Niantic told us they plan to show all existing POI while you will nominate in PoGo/Ingress/Other Niantic games(when they will be allowed to nominate), but it might take some time (maybe years) to get this feature, so for now the best thing to do is checking in Ingress.
The location is right across the street from the Manchester Police Memorial, Manchester NH 03103 is the zip code, United States. @LukeAllStars-ING I believe my friend nominated this location across the street from Gill Stadium and said it was approved, hence it saying duplicate, but if they used my location off Maple Street it should have plenty of space for a stop or gym.
Yes, there is already a wayspot at the sign for the bowling alley, which is an acceptable place for the wayspot. Because it is too close to the wayspot for Gill Stadium, it will not appear in Pokémon GO, but it may appear in other games. A new nomination for the bowling alley would be marked as a duplicate (as you have seen).
How can we get that spot to be in Pokemon Go? I see spots close other places.
