Released recently on iOS and Android devices, Pokemon Go is downloaded on more than 15 million devices across the globe. It is a very interesting AR game which is not only challenging but forces you to travel miles in search of Pokemon.
However, there are cheats available that makes it easier for players to grab Pokemon. Cheating is something that many players prefer instead of fairly grinding themselves to reach a higher level and get the best of Pokemon. Such players will face the hammer after Niantic’s decision to take action.
In a recent blogpost, Niantic made it clear that it will not tolerate such behavior within its AR game. Pokemon Go cheaters will be banned from the game if their accounts show clear signs of cheating.
The decision has been made after many reports from players complaining about cheaters ruining the game.
After reviewing many reports of in-game cheating, we have started taking action against players taking unfair advantage of and abusing Pokémon GO. Moving forward, we will continue to terminate accounts that show clear signs of cheating.
Our main priority with Pokémon GO is to provide a fair, fun, and legitimate game experience for all players. If our system has determined that you cheated, then you will receive an email stating that your account has been terminated.
Of course, some may get banned accidently or due to a mistake in the system that tracks such activities. If you think you are one of such accounts, head over here to let Niantic know.
It looks like life is about to get a lot tougher for Pokemon Go Cheaters.
