Niantic is trying to remove every kind of Pokémon GO cheat out there, but if you use them in a smart manner, in a way that removes the danger of getting banned, GPS and Pokémon GO Bot hacks can help you in a great way.
Using GPS spoofs can get you banned, but avoiding some actions will let you fly under the radar. Firstly, Never Use GPS Spoof in order to catch region-specific Pokémon. Catching a region-locked Pokémon (like Tauros, Kangaskhan, Mr. Mime, Farfetch’d ) will mark you in an instant. Don’t be greedy, and don’t think that you’ll end up undiscovered.
And be sure to not travel too fast while having GPS spoof activated. It’s easy to get noticed, since traveling too fast will immediately be noticed. The safest way of avoiding a ban is to take your time between two in-game events and to walk while playing Pokémon GO.
Pokémon Bots can be handy, in more than one way. You can use them to hatch eggs, catch Pokémon, and visit PokeStops without making a single step. If using it, make sure the bot travels at walking speed and be sure to get outside from time to time in order to battle at gyms. That way. Niantic won’t be able to spot the bot since it walks at a usual pace, and since bots cannot acquire gyms, performing gym battles will make you, even more, Sam Fisher in the eyes of Niantic. In other words, you won’t be discovered.
If you somehow end up getting banned, here’s what you can expect punishment to be. If you get soft banned, spinning the wheel at PokeStops won’t get you items. Further, you won’t be able to catch Pokémon. This can last from a few seconds to a few hours, it depends on what kind of violation you breached.
If you violate any of Pokémon GO various terms and conditions, expect a permanent ban. If permanently banned, you won’t be able to even start the game, just look at the image above. Of course, you can appeal to Niantic (it would be too much if the permanent ban couldn’t get removed since the game connects with your Google account), just visit this page.
And remember, as soon Niantic detects a cheat, stop using it immediately. Until a specific cheat is discovered, you are free to use it, just follow tips we shared above. Happy hunting!
