"Pokemon Go" creator Niantic Labs has finally clamped down on all devices for its augmented reality game as it has made such tools become unsupported during playing.

The latest software update has disqualified all accounts which have rooted and jailbreak applications which as a result created a major upset in the gaming community, according to Forbes.

This video game cleansing is just the latest endeavor for Niantic Labs to diminish double-dealing ways in playing "Pokemon Go." Jailbroken and rooted smartphones will mount a bluffing GPS application, which shams a player's location to acquire Pokemons located in other areas. There have also been rumors that as the second installment will arrive next week, these hacking devices have at its disposal additional tricks up its sleeves to additionally support these cheaters.

Thus it is only fair that Niantic has banned these unscrupulous acts in their latest patch.

Thus it is only fair that Niantic has banned these unscrupulous acts in their latest patch as it gave this official announcement via Facebook:

"We continue to focus on eliminating bots and scrapers from Pokémon GO. Rooted or jailbroken devices are not supported by Pokémon GO. Remember to download Pokémon GO from the official Google Play Store or iTunes App Store only.

However, this resolution has created a sense of annoyance with some members of the playing demographic who have downloaded the devices due to reasons other than cheating. Take for instance, users of Android phones, a great number of users have customized their smartphones due to a variety of reasonable motives.

In related news, another update but this time in a more positive note for players is the upcoming Buddy Pokemon feature, as reported in Heavy.

The much-awaited feature will have Pokemon Go players hand-picked a Buddy Pokemon which they have captured from their roster. The buddy system will generate rewards and experiences from the game.

Examples of such unique feature elements in Pokemon Go will be the ability to award candies which is basically important for evolution and giving strength to trainers. This candy offers are given when you have covered a certain amount of area with your Pokemon buddy by just walking.
