Spoofing in Pokemon Go is easy, but its risky for all the trainers out there. Pokemon Go made fans all over the world crawl and step into every nook and corner of their city in search of Pokemon, PokeStops, and PokeGyms. The had a massive game plan which spawned Pokemon according to the type of area, if you seemed to live near the ocean or a beach you would see tons of water type Pokemon in your surroundings but that raised another issue that people still had to actively travel which seemed impossible on a regular basis and then GPS spoofing for Pokemon Go was brought.
The benefits of GPS Spoofing in Pokemon Go
GPS Spoofing allowed players to travel to any part of the world by entering a mock location which had a much more density of Pokemon. As Niantics plan was always flawed players had to use this method to gather pokemon which would never spawn in their locality or even catch a rare pokemon which could be caught on a special event.
Be careful of GPS Spoofing
Though this method of catching Pokemon seems to be really lucrative it is still unfair in the eyes of Niantic and they will ban the account associated with GPS Spoofing after a couple of warnings. This is the downside of being able to virtually travel anywhere in the world to catch Pokemon, you should only go ahead with this method if you are willing to accept the consequences of having your account banned.
