Can't find variable: PushNotification on Ionic cordovaPushV5 initialize


Hello everyone
I’m getting mad about it.
Trying to implement the last cordova push notification repository (cordovaPushV5) but when it look into the console it said ReferenceError: Can't find variable: PushNotification.
But the wierd thing here is that if I call the PushNotification from console, it exist.

Here goes some code

$(document).ready(function() {

    // notification

    var options = {
      android: {
        senderID: "THE_NUMBER"
      ios: {
        alert: "true",
        badge: "true",
        sound: "true"
      windows: {}
    // initialize
    $cordovaPushV5.initialize(options).then(function() {
      // start listening for new notifications
      // start listening for errors
      // register to get registrationId
      $cordovaPushV5.register().then(function(registrationId) {
        console.log('registrationId: ',registrationId);
    // triggered every time notification received
    $rootScope.$on('$cordovaPushV5:notificationReceived', function(event, data){

    // triggered every time error occurs
    $rootScope.$on('$cordovaPushV5:errorOcurred', function(event, e){
      console.log('event: ', event);
      console.log('error: ', e);

I have set a timeout of 10 seconds before the plugin init and it works, but shouldn’t work this way, any thoughts?
