Pokemon Go How to Hatch Eggs and Earn Candy with Your Buddy Without Walking

Trainers, hatching Eggs, and earning Candy with your Buddy just got a little easier and the following trick, well actually there are two tricks, will help you hatch Eggs and earn Candy with your Buddy faster and without walking.

Some of you might call this ‘cheating,’ and some might find it very useful, especially those who don’t have time or are not able to walk much throughout the day.

So, here is everything you should do.

Trick #1

  1. Make sure Adventure Sync is turned on in Settings
  2. Make yourself comfortable by sitting or laying down
  3. Start shaking your phone UP and DOWN
  4. The Adventure Sync will start to count the shaking as steps. Sometimes it takes some time until the app starts to catch up
  5. The app doesn’t have to be open

Make sure you shake the phone up and down and do it at the pace of a jog.

According to one of our followers, you can shake the phone in any direction as long as you’re going back and forth. He is using this trick for a long time now and discovered how long we have to shake the phone to reach 1km, 5km, and 10km. Check it out below.

  • 10 minutes = 1km
  • 30 minutes = 5km
  • 1 hour = 10km

Trick #2 and an easier way

  • Get a sock out of your drawer
  • Put your phone in the sock
  • Simply move it up and down

Result: 1.6 KM after 5-6 minutes of bouncing.

This can be very useful for any upcoming  Evolve a specific Pokemon task (Pokemon that require walking to evolve e.g. Feebes into Milotic), it can come in handy when a new shiny Pokemon hatch from Eggs, or when a 1/2 Egg Hatch Distance bonus goes live.

Hi, gamers! You can call me Mr. DComplex. I'm a gamer, a hardcore gamer. My favorite genres are Action RPG and MMORPG. At the moment I'm using my PC as my only gaming platform, but soon I might get a new PS4 from Angel. Update - Angel did get me a PS4, oh wait, it's the PS4 PRO 1TB!!! Much love bro!


  1. Using a cheap phone to play also can rack up the kilometers. Low end phones such as TCL have less precise GPS
    I can leave the game open on my phone and the charger attached, on my nightstand, and I will find in the morning that it says I walked several kilometers.

  2. There have been videos on YouTube about this for over a year…. I’m sure you can write another article about this on all the machines you can buy and insert your phone into to simulate walking and running….

  3. this might not be bad idea only thing can get banned by doing or will they know your not really walking
