Pokemon Go Niantic to Revert Strikes for Players who Incorrectly Received Punishments

Trainers, Niantic and Pokemon Go will be reverting strikes for some players who incorrectly received punishments.

Niantic Support announced on their Twitter account that they are working on reverting strikes for some Trainers who incorrectly received punishments on their account and this process will be done automatically.

We’re glad that they acknowledged this mistake and are reverting the incorrect strikes. To be honest, they should give compensation to these players.

As a reminder, here is the three-strike discipline policy:

Strike 1: Warning

Disciplinary actions:

If this strike is issued, you will see a warning message within the Pokémon GO app informing you that we have detected cheating on your account.

In addition to this warning, your gameplay experience may be degraded in the following ways for the duration of the warning:

You may not be able to encounter rare Pokémon in the wild. These Pokémon may not appear on the map or on the Nearby Pokémon tracker.

You may be excluded from receiving new EX Raid Passes.


This strike will last for approximately 7 days. After this period, your gameplay experience will fully be restored.

Strike 2: Suspension

Disciplinary actions:

If your account is issued a second strike, you will temporarily lose access to your Pokémon GO account. When attempting to log into the game, you’ll be presented with a message stating that your account is suspended. You will not be able to bypass this message.


This strike will last for approximately 30 days. After that period, your account access will be restored.

Strike 3: Termination

Disciplinary actions:

If you receive the first and second strikes and continue to cheat, your account will be permanently banned.



Have you gotten a strike without any justifiable reason?

  1. As a strike is not visible thing for a trainer how do we know if Niantic is actually doing anything?
