Pokémon GO

This week, Niantic started banning users suspected of cheating in Pokémon GO. Yesterday evening, they posted a statement on the official website about those bans:



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.

If your account has been terminated, despite not cheating or using any unauthorised tools, you can click here to report it.
