Pokemon GO: Niantic Gets More Brutal In Battling Cheaters; Will Now Mark Pokemon Caught Illegally
Pokemon GO cheaters are still trying to go around the rules of the game forcing Niantic to get more brutal in battling them. The developer is now planning to mark Pokemon caught illegally. Would this be the final nail in the coffin for Pokemon cheaters?
This new anti-cheating measure will be included in the big summer update that Pokemon GO will have soon. Aside from being tagged, when a gamer catches a Pokemon by dishonest means, the monster will act strangely. Niantic hopes that by marking Pokemon caught illegally, this will curb cheating in the game.
This planned move to mark Pokemon caught illegally was confirmed in a Reddit post by a Niantic rep. The post stated that starting on June 21, Pokemon caught by using illegal means will be tagged with a slash in the inventory and may act abnormally. One way cheaters are able to go around the Pokemon GO game rules is by using third-party services.
Other cheaters of Pokemon GO use mapping services to search for rare monsters, while some use bots. Niantic has been pestered with these cheaters ever since game launch. However, no matter what system cheaters use, this new anti-cheating measure will mark whatever Pokemon they will catch. Once the monster is tagged, the mark will never be erased in the inventory.
Niantic has thought of and deployed several anti-cheating measures for Pokemon GO but still, Pokemon are being caught illegally. The developer has shadowbanned cheaters, kicked them out permanently and blocked the programs that cheaters use. But cheaters always discover a way to catch Pokemon illegally.
The new anti-cheating measure of Pokemon GO will be released with the latest update that Niantic has already started to roll out. This new update will include new Raid Battles and a new motivation system for Gyms. The developer claims that this update is the biggest that the game has received so far.
