Pokémon Go Creators are stepping up anti-cheat measures

In a blog post published on their website, Niantic shared its plans for dealing with cheats in Pokémon Go.

In the post, Niantic shared that they are getting better and faster at identifying scammers. This also has the positive consequence of preventing legitimate players from being wrongly penalized.

As a result of their improved systems, Niantic will introduce its new anti-cheat approaches. They immediately begin punishing players who have been cheated during recent in-game events.

They hope to roll these new measures into all of their games, and instead of banning players in waves like before, Niantic hopes to consistently enforce their anti-cheating procedures.


According to Niantic’s Player Policy, cheating includes:

  • Using modified or unofficial software.
  • Play with multiple accounts.
  • Using any tool or technique to spoof your location.
  • share accounts.
  • Deliberately exploiting a bug to get a reward.
  • Abuse of Refund Policy and Mechanism.
  • Buying or selling in-game currency on third-party platforms.
  • Buy, sell or trade accounts.

The developers ended their blog post by reminding players to only download official versions of the game and not support jailbroken devices.

Pokémon Go recently had a community day where Deino was the featured Pokémon. However, recent changes to Community Days have been unpopular, as players only have four hours to complete assigned tasks.

Interestingly, Niantic has also rolled out a feature to encourage people to get back personally involved with Pokémon Go. While the game has gained many remote features due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Niantic wants people to interact in person again. To achieve this, they added a feature that extends the duration of the Community Day event when players raid their local gym.

Pokémon Go will have new events throughout the summer.
