We have some bad news for everyone who is trying to cheat on their way to Pokemon hunting celebrity! Niantic is getting serious about its law enforcement policies, permanently banning Pokemon GO accounts that are suspected of the following, but not limited to: “falsifying their location, using emulators, modified or unofficial software and/or accessing Pokémon GO clients or backends in an unauthorized manner, including through the use of third party software.”
So basically, if you cheat, you’re in trouble! Though, there’s always the possibility to appeal a terminated account through the game’s support page if you feel you have been wrongly charged.
Niantic says that it’s resorting to extreme measures to “provide a fair, fun, and legitimate game experience for everyone.” If everyone cheated, it would be like the wild west in Pokemon Go, where anything goes and no one is happy. So you can understand why they are cracking down on cheaters.
Recently, Niantic was spotted beta-testing a Pokemon radar of sorts. It is a revamped Nearby feature showing Nintendo monsters’ approximate locations in the span of 500 metres. If all goes well this official tool will help eager Pokemon trainers have a better time catching and developing their army of Pokemon without cheating.
