Niantic’s Banhammer is Thirsty for Blood, Permabans are now Real

At the begging of this month, a lot of Pokemon Go players received a “red warning,” and a lot of spoofers tried to break Niantic’s ASM and access calls, but it looks like they’ve lost the battle.

It all started 12 hours ago, and most of the cheaters/spoofers thought this is just nonsense and it’s just a server issue. Since then, a lot of them reported on receiving a permanent ban. Some of them are blaming the ++ team, some are just dealing with the fact that they are cheaters and knew that this would happen one day.

Like the title says, Niantic’s Banhammer is thirsty for blood, and at this moment Niantic is targeting only iOS accounts who used and are still using PokeGo++.

Niantic’s countermeasures are now focused on cheating, and it looks like they are giving permaban.

Also, Raymond from Niantic Support sent out an email, saying:

Hi Trainer,

In Pokemon Go, we take fairness seriously and want to provide an accessible, fun and equal game experience to all Trainers. We recently pushed some updates that have placed a lock on certain accounts that have been found to not be playing within our Trainer Guidelines and Terms of Service.”

Today is PokeGo++, tomorrow another third-party app, so don’t cheat, play fair and you’ll be safe!
