We have heard about Pokemon GO, the world phenomenon that became the most popular app in less than a month. Gamers all over the world are trying to complete their Pokedex , but some of them decided to try the easy way: cheating. Unfortunately for those people, Twitch has just warned that the players who are caught will receive a strike on their account.
There are many unofficial programs, named bots, that cheat GPS to allow them to catch poke balls and Pokemon without having to go outside. People who are using these kinds of programs can be suspended as they are breaking the rules.
Twitch is going to pay attention to Pokemon GO abusers since Aug. 8 so the players who did not respect the terms before that date do not have any reason to worry. At least for now. While Twitch is keeping an eye on the popular game, PokeStops continue to disappear as players keep on cheating. Niantic should involve more in this problem if they do not want more and more people who will choose to cheat just to get their favourite Pokemon.
There are many tricks people use to complete their Pokedex and here are some of them. One of them is by hatching eggs. A player can hatch eggs by travelling specific distances but Pokemon GO does not calculate the distance travelled.You just have to go in the device setting and deactivate the “high accuracy” feature and you will be able to get more and more eggs without moving.
Moreover, another technique cheaters use is to catch Pokemon without changing their place. However, you can use this option only if you want to start from the beginning. You can find more information regarding this matter, but have in mind the fact that some of those applications may be harmful to your smartphone. Do not use them unless you want to risk it all for your Pokemon.
We will see what Twitch is going to do about Pokemon GO cheaters. You should know that some players reported that they have a lifetime ban for going against the law. And let’s be honest: there is more fun when you actually play the game. What do you think? Are there going to be some changes about Pokemon GO cheaters?
