It was reported that some Pokemon Go players are not playing fairly by using the GPS Hack - an app installed on their mobile phopnes which will allow them to seemingly go to different location even though they're at a stand still."I wanna be the very best like no one ever was. Gotta catch them all!"
The app deceives the game thinking you are actually at a different location but in reality you are just at the same position as before. This allows the players to level up quickly with very little effort.
Have you tried it yet out of curiosity or intend to really "hack" the game in search of the elusive Pokemons out in the wild?
The Pokemon Go was officially release and available for download at the Google Playstore yesterday, August 6, 2016 but the app was already accessible a few weeks ago via underground. Those who were able to download it before retained their levels, just as my level 4 remained intact upon logging again on my mobile phone.
However, I'm on my way to level 5 with several Pokemons already but I did all of the catching while I am only sitting pretty at home doing no walking at all. Never used the hacks and just waited for those Pokemon creatures to appear. There were lures used when they were available during the first time I downloaded the game manually but now there's none available.
However, I've read online (The Verge) that there are actually several ways to cheat the game:
"As Pokémon Go continues its huge surge of international popularity, there have already been a wide variety of creative methods from various players who have tried in various ways to beat the system, from drones to phone cases to just outright trying to sell accounts.
But new video from earlier this week has raised the stakes again for Pokémon Gohacking, with a unique hardware-based solution to solve the problem of actually having to go outside and walk around to catch pokémon.
Instead of using software to spoof the GPS data being fed to the Pokémon Go app, this latest method involves placing the phone in a radio-frequency-shielded box, and using a signal generator to generate a fake GPS signal which the phone, (and therefore, thePokémon Go app), receives and uses as the "location" of the device.
Then, custom software uses Google Earth and a joystick to slowly change the signal to the phone, simulating walking by changing the faked location of the device."So it seems creative and ingenious Pokemon Go hacks will continue to emerge due to the popularity of the game. Have you seen people going around like crazy while looking at their mobile phones?
They're probably catching Pokemon as they try to become the very best like no one has ever done and shouts out "Gotta Catch Them All!"
