A Pokemon Go Hack is any tool, modification, app, software, fake GPS spoofing app, bot, script or technique that allows players of the game to gain unfair advantages in on Android and iOS alike, get more rare and more powerful Pokemon, more free Poke-Coins / Money / Gems, Stardust, Items, Legendary Pokemon, in-game Cash and other goodies. – While there are many ways of cheating in Pokemon Go, such as mod APKs and bots, hacks for unlimited free Pokecoins / Coins, Stardust, Money, free in-game purchases and Masterballs do not exist and are always fake.
The main game hacking methods, rather the most prolific techniques used to gain unfair advantages in Pokemon Go are the use of modded game clients, such as APK mods or iOS modified game apps that come with cheating functionality coded right into the game app itself, the use of game hacking tools that achieves much the same effects, but requiring a lot more user input and work to get to work, the use of fake GPS locations and GPS spoofing in order to play the game without actually having to move around, the use of bots in combination with spoofing to automatically farm the game for free coins, items, pokemmon and leveling all your pokemon to max more easily. – Besides these main methods, there are also some less popular methods like exploiting, which is probably the cheat with the most potential besides bots and some other minor client-side game modding methods. Overall game hackers in Pokemon Go are spoiled with a huge choice and will have no trouble to find some means that fits them perfectly.
Using different game hacking tools and apps, it is also possible to spoof or fake your GPS location in order to travel anywhere in the world quickly and catch any pokemon anywhere in the world. However, this has to be done carefully, since Niantic has implemented some anti-cheating checks preventing teleporting and moving way too fast. However GPS spoofing cheatss will make farming star dust, catching legendary pokemon and raids a lot easier, allow you to catch all the pokemong and max them easily, get more items, more free poke-coins, rare candies, consumables, star dust and other goodies. While most apps that allow for GPS spoof functionality require a root in order to work, needing to overwrite your phones actual GPS signal, it is possible to use Android and iOS emulators to use fake GPS signals with no root and no jailbrake required on your actual physical mobile gaming device that you use to play Pokemon Go in your spare time as you are able to connect to the same account.
Mods for Pokemon Go are usually modified or modded game files that are simply and easily downloaded for free and installed instad of the original game on Android or iOS devices. Once the modded Pokemon Go game is installed, you simply start the game and you will have cheats and Pokemon Go hacks activated right from the start. Possible cheats include: Auto catching pokemon, auto curve balls, excellent/perfect throws, auto research completion and more. However, Pokemon Go mods are usually outdated quickly, so make sure yours are up to date before downloading. – While using mods is much easier than all the alternatives, the installation process will still require users to follow some simple instructions in order to get the modded game client to work correctly. While running a mod will technically require no root and no jailbroken device, the installation process will generally require users to replace system files or modify the, which in many mobile devices cannot be done without admin access.
Generally the most premium and most exclusive modded game apps out there for Pokemon Go, mod menus are better than their normal counterparts in almost every way: Made by the best developers in the game cheating industry, coming with more and more powerful features, better compatibility, better performance, better anti-cheat detection rates, faster updates, better support and the iconic in-game menu that gives this cheating software its name and allows cheaters to enable, disable and often customize individual features of the app at will. – Overall one of the best cheats out there and may even be downloaded for free as many creators and providers make free limited or ‘lite’ versions available for free users to download easily.
While tools are much harder to use correctly than modded game apps, they are generally more consistent and the methods used here to implement cheats do generally not get outdated with every single update, patch or hotfix that the Pokemon Go game client receives. The most popular options when it comes to software used are Game Guardian for Android and Game Gem for iOS respectively. In order to get started following the in-depth guides and tutorials out there you will need some basic knowledge about memory editing and some motivation to learn, else you are almost certainly going to fail. The tools used in memory editing will almost always require a root or jailbroken mobile device in order to work, but there are script out there that act as a kind of mod menu or trainer that can automate a lot of the game modding procedures for you, but will get outdated as quickly as mods.
The use of temporary bugs to break a game and gain unfair advantages is called exploiting or using a ‘glitch’ and is one of the cheating methods with the greatest potential for overpowered features out there in Pokemon Go: Anything, even if usually impossible, unlimited free coins / pokecoins, infinite stardust, unlimited CP, unlimited master balls, item duplication, god modes, spawning pokemon and even free in-app purchases can become possible using the right bugs until the developers eventually and inevitably patch and hotfix the pugs and issues that made the exploit possible in the first place. Overall, while extremely rare and hard to find, glitches are the most powerful cheats in Pokemon Go and will generally require no root and no jailbrake to use, making it the most beginner-friendly and easy-to-use method on top of everything else.
Pokemon Go is an online game. As you certainly have noticed if you played early, Nintendo / Niantic severs have to be working in order for the game to run on your side. That is also the reason why you can’t get a God Mode, or Master Balls or free PokeCoins, Money cheats or free in-app purchases in any way. These datasets concerning the inventory and currencies of your account are stored on the Servers and cannot be hacked due to server-side processing. Anyone that claims to have some kind of “generator” or “adder” that gives you legendary Pokémon like Mew, Mewtwo, Zaptos ect is trying to get you to fill in some survey, download some virus, maybe both or scam you in some other way. So don’t trust people promising the impossible. BTW that applies to life as much as to Pokemon Go as well. Game modding tools can only modify data on your mobile device, known as client-side data, and not server data. While servers can theoretically be hacked, this would be highly illegal, and no one wants to go to prison for some virtual game coins.
Imagine you don’t have to leave your home, walk or catch pokemon at all and an automated bot running on your phone or PC will simply do all the work of hatching eggs, catching pokemon, walking using fake GPS data, finding rare pokemon such as Snorlax, Lapras, Mew, Mewtwo or even Arceus on its own without you having to do anything. – That is exactly what a Pokemon Go catching and farming bot can do. It will automatically collect goodies from pokestops, fight gyms, catch pokemon, turn weak pokemon into candies and beef up your strongest pokemon.
Bots can theoretically be run on iOS, Android or PC, but generally are run on PC, since it offer the most stable internet connection and is the most popular platform among not only users, but also bot developers. The bot will connect to Pokemon Go directly and automatically play the game by sending packets. So you will not even need an emulator to bot the game at all.
Of course bots can also be used to eliminate human error from the game and perfectly thrown poke balls / master balls and any other balls at the pokemon you want to catch, giving you the best chances to catch them successfully for every single ball you throw. AI bots have perfect reaction time and mechanics, making lag / latency the only factor that is still able to mess up your perfect throw when using any kind of macro, bot or script to catch automatically for you.
As we have firmly established at this point, money cheats are not possible in Poekmon Go due to server-side processing of your coins, star dust and similar game data. – However, this is not stopping what feels like millions of shady app modding sites from advertising their questionable downloads for Pokemon Go with the ‘mod money’ feature for infinite coins. – It should go without saying that all these mods should be avoided for your mobile devices security at all costs as advertising impossible features usually means nothing positive: If you must try such app downloads and you do not believe us, at least use an emulator as to not get your actual Android or iOS mobile gaming device infected with adware, malware or worse.
Hacked Game Clients in the form of modded APK (Android) and IPA (iOS) files are the most common and safe way to hack Pokemon Go at this time. However, there are no infinite Coins, or unlimited XP, Master Balls and so on. This is an online game and all the important information on your account, such as your Pokemon, their CP and so on are stored on the Niantic servers that cannot be hacked using any means. So with other words: Hacks such as CP hacks and God Modes are unfortunately not really in the realm of possibility.
However, modded game files can allow you to catch Pokémon instantly, change coordinates, move by dragging your screen, use game lag to duplicate items, auto collect pokestops, auto fight and make your “hitbox” bigger so you can collect and catch more stuff around you. Most modded game files are paid downloads, but once in a blue moon, they are offered for free as well. Don’t trust people offering them using surveys.
Below we are answering some of the most frequently asked questions concerning cheating in the game and are addressing some of the most pressing issues, problems and support inquiries we are most often approached with:
Cheating in any kind of game is 100% legal all over the world. Of course people generally wont love you for it, but the worst thing that can happen is that your account gets a warning or banned from the game. Keep in mind that Niantic and Nintendo do have the right to ban anyone from their services.
There is a surprisingly huge amount of ways to cheat in this very simple game. The most popular way to cheat by far is the use of Fake GPS data in order to travel wherever you want at any time, without having to, you know, actually go there, and in order to keep walking an hatch your poke eggs faster. Using automated bots to farm catch Pokémon is very effective at leveling your account as well that is gaining popularity.
There are also some other client side scripts for iOS, Android and Emulators that allow you to automatically get great poke ball throws, some scripts that allow you to trade Pokémon for candies quicker without having to press a lot of buttons and some minor hacks. However, there are NO hacks or generators for PokeCoins (Money), unlimited health, CP Hacks or item hacks for master balls ect of any kind. (These values are processed on the server and cannot be hacked)
This is how you can get fake GPS data to work in Pokemon go. This little hack works best on Android, but may also be quite possible on a Rooted + Jailbroken iOS device as well. Root is required, since you need to run a system app with root privileges to inject fake GPS data into the game:
1. Root your Android / iOS / Emulator
2. Install a Fake GPS App and give it root privilgeges
3. Start Pokemon Go
4. Start the Fake GPS App
5. Change your coordinates in The GPS app
6. Play Pokemon Go and teleport around
7. Don’t teleport too far at once. Keep it realistic. No more than a quarter of a mile / 500m at ance.
8. Congratulations, you just hacked Pokémon Go yourself.
It all depends on how you are using the cheat, but if you are knowledgeable enough to get your mobile device rooted, and getting this to work, then you will probably also be able to apply common sense and not get banned. You will generally get soft-banned for a few hours if you “teleport” too far instantly. If you want to “travel” large Distances using Fake GPS data on Android or iOS, you will need to turn the game off for a reasonable amount of time, then change your GPS location and start the game again. Traveling instantly can easily get you banned permanently, especially over very large distances so try to keep everything under half a mile / 1km and you should almost always be fine.
However, the anti-cheating measures from Niantic, the developers of the game, are likely to be amped up soon. So I would recommend you travel in the smallest increments possible. Just to be sure. Especially if you want to cheat on your main account.
As always the easiest way is to emulate an android device on PC and then cheat that way, it will easily allow you to set up scripts, advanced bots to farm Pokémon and travel using fake GPS and automatically transfer Pokémon away for candies, automatically evolve, automatically hatch and incubate ect.
Between Android and Apple iOS devices its definitively easier to cheat on Android, since it is more popular in terms on numbers and easier to preate scripts for with Google giving a lot of tools to even more people. However rooting you phone is a must for fake GPS, so you are literally running the risk of soft bricking your phone if you don’t know what you are doing, which is why I really recommend either doing it on PC first or having a pro do it for you. Back up your phone before you try rooting anything, please. Pokemon Go might not be worth bricking your 400$ phone over.
Yes there are, but they all are used along with fake position data and require a rooted device. The only kind of script that does not require a rooted phone is the auto pokeball throwing script that will achieve great throws 100% of the time. However, these kinds of scripts are usually programmed on Windows PC.
Bots can potentially play the whole game for you, since it is pretty simple: Catch pokemon, roam around, use PokeStops, incubate eggs, auto walk, level up your character, transfer away pokemon with low CP, keep high CP, evolve high CP when farmed enough candies, keep highest CP evolutions. A bot can really do most things in Pokemon Go automatically. The only thing left would be to choose what Pokémon to power up with your insane amounts of star dust.
