Apparently new anti-cheat measure active in Pokémon Go


Niantic has apparently activated a new anti-cheat measure in Pokémon Go.

Affected accounts no longer see rare Pokémon, reports Pokémon Go Hub.

So far, the goal of this new measure is obviously accounts that use third-party apps to track down Pokémon.

These use bot accounts, log into the game’s servers and fake their location to show nearby Pokémon.

On the other hand, Niantic has been fighting since last summer because, according to the developer, these services put too much load on the servers.

But Niantic boss John Hanke had already spoken out against the use of trackers for other reasons. It contradicts the real purpose of the app.

On the left you can only see ordinary Pokémon (Kleinstein is currently because of the event), on the right you can see what is actually in the area.

Still, such apps are still popular, with gamers arguing that they encourage them to play rather than make it fun.

Nonetheless, Niantic has something against it and will probably have to continue to work on it, because the developers of such trackers simply create new accounts when others have been branded accordingly.
