Catching Pokémon From Home: A Cheat Allows That
The New Trend
Pokémon Go is surely the new trend among mobile games: many users are walking down the streets in order to search for the famous little monsters, The game has become so much popular than in some cities there are warnings inviting people to be careful when driving: in fact some people used to play Pokémon Go while driving, and many incidents already happened. Aside from the dark aspect of these games, involving players in searching virtual things in a real life constantly (I should imagine how many people have their eyes completely tied on their smartphone, and maybe a Pokémon is the first thing they see, even before a friend who is just near the street), the game can be nice if you play it with moderation and without having the anxiety of catching all the monsters you can in little time.
A GPS-Based Game
As Pokémon Go involves you in searching for these little monsters in the real world, you are going to use it by enabling GPS services. This means you are going to use much phone's battery, that's why I also suggest to bring a power bank with you when you are going to catch Pokémons.
Do you play Pokémon Go?
Cheating GPS Tracker
Cheating at a GPS-based game is quite simple, as you are going to fake your GPS location, in order you can appear in any place while you are walking inside your home. In this way, you can catch almost every Pokémon existing in the world: in one minute you are in Vancouver, the other minute you are in New York streets, after 10 minutes you are in London... that seems very easy, and yeah, that's also technically possible. In order to fake your GPS position in an Android device, it is enough to enable Android Developers' Hidden Menu (you can enable it by going through Settings -> Device Information, and tapping 10 times on "Build Version") and searching the option which allows you to enable "fake GPS positions", inside the new menu.
After you have enabled this setting, you can download one of the many Google Play's apps allowing you to fake GPS position (you can search them in Google's store, there are dozens) and then you are ready to virtually teleport you in every part of the world. You select the desired city in the map, you start the app and you magically appear to be in this city. So you start walking in your home (or even in your small town, in which you already catched all the available Pokémons) and you catch all the Pokémons available in the city you have selected. After you finished, you change city and you go on, catching dozens of monsters in a single day.
Does that sound easy? Apparently yes, cheating is very simple. Making sure you are not catched is less simple, considering Pokémon Go soft-ban's system is even too severe, as it sometimes bans even players who are too good at playing, without cheating. So cheating is very simple, being catched is even simpler. My advice is always one: if you are playing a game, there is no sense in cheating. You are catching Pokémons only in order to have fun, not to demonstrate something to other people: after you got all the monsters, completely evolved... what have you obtained? Nothing, it is only a game. I decided to write this article only in order to show you how technology is full of cheats, and even the most popular game of this summer is not perfect. After saying this, I don't invite you to cheat: go out, find Pokémons and entertain yourself... only don't do it when driving!
