'Pokemon Go' Cheat Update: Niantic Publicly Brands 'Pokemon' Caught By 'Pokemon Go' Hacks & Cheats; How To Deal With Anti-cheat Update Revealed
Niantic has made actions in catching players who use cheats in "Pokemon Go." They are now publicly branding all "Pokemon" caught via "Pokemon Go" hacks and cheats. However, there is now a way to deal with the Niantic's anti-cheat update. Here are the details.
Niantic Brands "Pokemon" From Hacks And Cheats
Some "Pokemon Go" players deliberately go out of the normal gameplay and use hacks and cheats. With this, they can get several "Pokemon" without doing their best to get it.
Niantic officially announced that they are staying true to their commitment to ensuring that "Pokemon Go" will be a fun and fair experience for all players. Hence, they are publicly branding "Pokemon" caught through "Pokemon Go" hacks and cheats using third-party services. With the new anti-cheat update, any "Pokemon" that is illegitimately caught will be marked with a slash or glaring red marks in the inventory, Reddit reports.
What To Expect From Slashed "Pokemon"
Aside from being publicly branded or slashed, the "Pokemon" caught through "Pokemon Go" hacks and cheats can no longer do their intended abilities. Hence, they will behave oddly in combat. Moreover, the new anti-cheat update will impact "Pokemon Go" cheaters in negative ways. Below is a screenshot of how an inventory of "Pokemon" caught via cheats appears.
How To Deal With "Pokemon Go" Anti-Cheat Update
After Niantic took measures, "Pokemon Go" players are now left with collections of slashed "Pokemon" that are unable to do their purpose in combat. However, there have been reports on how to deal with the new "Pokemon Go" Anti-cheat measure.
Players can now make the slash in the "Pokemon" caught through "Pokemon Go" hacks and cheats disappear. They can do this through making the "Pokemon" evolve. For example, players can let a 100% Dratini with a slash to evolve into a Dragonair with no slash. Moreover, those that are caught with bots or spoofing programs also don't show the slash if they evolved before the update, Polygon reports.
Niantic may have made an oversight regarding this matter. However, they are quick to respond. As soon as "Pokemon Go" players found a way to deal with the anti-cheat measure, Niantic made an action not to allow any hacked "Pokemon" to evolve. Niantic's warning to cheaters and hackers remains clear. "Don't do the thing, unless you want your Pokémon to suffer the consequences," said Niantic. However, some players are still trying to find a way to best the anti-cheat measures, Shack News reports.
