When it comes to Pokémon GO, Niantic have said time and time again about how they wish for it to be a fair game and that has still not changed.


With the company so keen to ensure the game remains a fair to experience to all, a new feature has also been made part of the new update, which you can read about right here as we share an official comment straight from Niantic posted on reddit:

Update on Pokémon caught using third-party services that circumvent normal gameplay:

With the announcement of Raid Battles and the new battle features, we are staying true on our commitment to ensuring that Pokémon GO continues to be a fun and fair experience for all Trainers. Starting today, Pokémon caught using third-party services that circumvent normal gameplay will appear marked with a slash in the inventory and may not behave as expected. We are humbled by the excitement for all the new features we announced yesterday.

This is one small part of our continued commitment to maintaining the integrity of our community and delivering an amazing Pokémon GO experience.

A little more specificity would have been nice, so as to clear up exactly what kind of cheater will also be affected by the slash, so until specificity comes, let’s just assume mappers will also be affected.


Stay tuned for more.
