For all the real trainers out there, your wish has finally came true. Niantic has been making big moves these past couple weeks, with one of the biggest, today.
Niantic has announced it’s removal of botters, spoofers and cheaters alike with a short statement and a way to report them. Niantic is finally taking its community seriously. Here is the statement that was released:
Your account was permanently terminated for violations of the Pokémon GO Terms of Service. This includes, but is not limited to: falsifying your location, using emulators, modified or unofficial software and/or accessing Pokémon GO clients or backends in an unauthorized manner including through the use of third party software.
Our goal is to provide a fair, fun and legitimate game experience for everyone. We will continue to work with all of you to improve the quality of the gameplay, including ongoing optimization and fine tuning of our anti-cheat system. If you believe your account has been terminated in error incorrectly, you can appeal that termination through this form. For privacy reasons, please do not post appeals on social media.
Now that Niantic is doing something about all this, it’s looking up for Pokémon GO in a big way! Please let us know what you think of Ninatic’s latest move in the comments.
