Niantic Labs (Pokemon GO developers) have confirmed that they are currently in the process of banning Pokemon GO Cheaters. They stated, “Pokémon GO is to provide a fair, fun, and legitimate game experience for all players”. If you do get banned you’ll receive an email for confirmation but if you did not do anything wrong you can contact Niantic Support for an appeal. Below we have all the Pokemon GO Cheats that will get you banned and the Pokemon GO Cheats that won’t.
Pokemon Go Cheats that will get you banned
In Pokemon GO there are a number of ways to hatch eggs without walking the distance required. You can attach your phone to a bike wheel then keep pushing it round. Or you can attach your phone to a fan.
Holding onto Pokemon GO gyms indefinitely
If you put an egg on a gym no one will be able to battle it so it can’t be defeated.
Note: Doing these cheats will most definitely get your account banned. Also Niantic are currently stopping these cheats.
Pokemon GO Cheats that won’t get your account banned
As most of you know Eevee in Pokemon GO evolves into Jolteon, Flareon or Vaporon. To evolve Eevee into these rare Pokemon you have to re-name him.
- Rename as Rainer to evolve into water type Vaporeon
- Rename as Sparky to evolve into lightning type Jolteon
- Rename as Pyro to evolve into fire type Flareon
