Using Pokemon Go Cheats Can Result In A Ban

by Damian Seeto


If you are using any third party software like a bot to help you catch Pokemon in Pokemon Go, be careful because this might result in you getting banned.

Niantic has updated some of its details on its website for Pokemon Go and it tells you some of the things that can result in you getting banned. The full announcement can be seen below. Users can appeal bans if they feel it was an error.

“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. 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.

If you don’t want to get your account banned, just play the game normally without any aids and you should be all good. Niantic is sure to release more updates in order to make the game better in the future.
