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.
