GPS cheating in Pokemon could get you permanently banned on your account

Pokémon GO has become increasingly popular all around the world, a feat that’s impressive when you consider that players have to actually leave the comfort of their own home to play it. Still, there will always be those who try to cheat the system – a fact that might end up getting a whole lot of players banned in the near future.

Pokémon GO has become increasingly popular all around the world, a feat that’s impressive when you consider that players have to actually leave the comfort of their own home to play it. Still, there will always be those who try to cheat the system – a fact that might end up getting a whole lot of players banned in the near future.

Niantic’s new AR app, Pokémon GO, uses your smartphone’s GPS to detect a player’s movement, allowing wild Pokemon to be found in certain areas at particular times. Ever since the game’s release, a wide range of apps have surfaced, with the purpose of fooling a phone’s GPS and allowing users to trick their phones into thinking that they’re somewhere besides their living room.

Apps such as Necrobot and Pokebuddy have seen a range of success lately and now a new app, MyGoBot, has arrived. MyGoBot is a website that has players pay just under $8 for the opportunity to cheat the system. Now that fans are actually able to pay for cheating software, it’s likely that Niantic will be stepping up their game at punishing those who use it.

The owner of MyGoBot states – ““No one knows for sure. Botting is a risky action no matter what, so please bot at your own risk!”
