Are you a Pokémon GO player who lives in a small town without any PokéStops? Is there a bunch of great places around you that could definitely make for some great PokéStops? You might be interested in knowing that you can absolutely make your own PokéStops in Pokémon Go. Thanks to a clever brand new hack, you might be able to make it happen.

You can make your own PokéStops

Pokémon Go is the 2nd augmented reality game developed by Niantic. The first game, Ingress, uses a lot of the same data and concepts as Pokémon GO, and it turns out that you are able to use Ingress to your advantage in order to create PokéStops in Pokémon GO.

You can turn Ingress portals into PokéStops

Ingress is a cyberpunk-flavored game about hacking computers and challenging other factions in controlling game elements called portals, much in the same manner that Pokémon GO players fight to control gyms.

How Pokémon GO and Ingress relate

The portals are all linked to real-world locations in the same way PokéStops are linked to real-world locations as well, and you can look up portal locations via the Ingress Intel site. Some of these Portal locations were determined by Niantic using historical markers and geotagged photos on Google, but around 15 million Portal locations were also submitted by its users. The User submissions feature for Ingress is what you will use to try and create new PokéStops.

Here's how to do it

Similar to PokéStops, most Portals have a photo showing you what the real-life location looks like. A Redditor says that finding photo-less Portals is the key to creating new PokéStops. The method to create new PokéStops will ultimately involve in looking for Portals in Ingress that have no photograph attached to them.
