Pokemon GO took off like a rocket last month, making $200 million in its first month on the market and breaking records all over the place. But, there are some who always ruin the fun.


Cheaters have been having a field day in Pokemon GO, but not any longer with developer Niantic permanently banning Pokemon GO cheaters. If you have been using various tricks in Pokemon GO, such as GPS spoofing, using bots, emulators or something else, your account can be banned.

Niantic has said: "Your account was permanently terminated for violations of the Pokémon GO Terms of Service. This includes, but is not limited to: falsifying your 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".

"Our goal is to provide a fair, fun and legitimate game experience for everyone. We will continue to work with all of you to improve the quality of the gameplay, including ongoing optimization and fine tuning of our anti-cheat system," the developer continued. "If you believe your account has been terminated in error incorrectly, you can appeal that termination through this form. For privacy reasons, please do not post appeals on social media".
