Pokétháng Go

View more stories

Love it or hate it, Pokémon Go is bringing out the best in people. There are the impromptu meet ups, organised walks of thousands, and the general feeling that, yes, humanity isn"t so bad, which is quite the feat given the a torturous few weeks we"ve had in the UK. Unfortunately, like any đoạn Clip game (AR or otherwise), unscrupulous players have sầu entered the Pokétháng Go fold, & they"ve figured out some (admittedly clever) ways of cheating the game out of Pokémon, without even having lớn walk around to lớn vị so.

The first method is actually a way lớn get Pokémon Go up and running on a PC. The technique, created by YouTuber Travis D, involves installing the Android phone emulator BlueStacks, và then rooting that virtual device in order khổng lồ install an phầm mềm that spoofs the reported GPS location. From there, you can play the game just like you can on an Android or iOS phone, without the need khổng lồ go outside at all. The solution isn"t perfect given that you have to tab out every time you want to lớn change your GPS location, and there are random crashes. That"s not khổng lồ mention that, thanks to lớn GPS spoofing, you can effectively take over Pokémon gyms & find Pokémon that would otherwise be inaccessible, thus screwing over those who actually put in the hard work và walk around for miles.

There was a similar cheat unveiled on Twitch earlier this week, dubbed the Pokétháng Go Cheat Tool, which involved downloading a modified version of the Android phầm mềm APK that allowed you to change location at will. In the stream, which has now been removed, the player was able to catch numerous Pokétháng without leaving his seat. The streamer also claimed that the haông chồng would allow Pokémon Go players khổng lồ collect items và level up their Pokétháng without having to lớn grind or use in-phầm mềm purchases.

Using such cheats lượt thích these or GPS spoofing is banned by the terms of service for Pokémon Go, & players found to be using them have sầu been punished with being unable to catch Pokétháng, collect items from PokéStops, or battle in gyms. Notably, however, these measures have sầu so far only been implemented for short periods of time, with players able khổng lồ play the game normally after a few hours. The short punishment period has led to lớn many players continuing lớn cheat, including those from rural areas where Pokétháng are less likely to appear.

Other players have sầu come up with some decidedly more old school methods of cheating the game. Hatching eggs, for instance, requires players lớn walk a certain distance, with the game cleverly discounting any travel above sầu a certain tốc độ, like when on a train or in a car. However, it turns out that attaching your phone khổng lồ a turntable, bicycle wheel, or ceiling tín đồ causes the on-screen avatar to lớn walk around in circles, và thus hatch eggs quicker. Another player attached his phone to lớn the top of a Model train và sent it travelling around a track, again increasing walking distance.

Fans of the classic Pokémon games on the Gameboy và 3DS may remember similar hacks that involved attaching a rubber bvà or a clip lớn the circle pad or d-pad in order lớn keep a character walking forward. While those hacks were never criticised by Nintenvày, given the multiplayer nature of Pokétháng Go, it"s unlikely that these will go unnoticed by developer Niantic. And yes, attaching your phone lớn a drone và flying it around khổng lồ nearby PokéStops is probably cheating too.
