Trainers, leveling up in Pokémon GO often requires you to literally go the extra mile. But what if you could hatch Eggs and earn Candy with your Buddy without stepping foot outside? We’ve got some game-changing tricks that not only make these tasks easier but can also help you complete specific in-game quests requiring distance. Let’s get into it.
Before you try any of these tricks, you’ll want to enable “Adventure Sync” in the game settings. This feature keeps track of the distance you’ve moved, even when Pokémon GO is closed. It’s crucial for the tricks we’re about to reveal.
This one’s a classic. With Adventure Sync on, tuck your phone into a sock and shake it. It fools both your phone and the game into thinking you’re walking. Couple this with a 1/2 Hatch Distance bonus (when available), and you’re in for a Pokémon-hatching spree.
This method is as simple as it sounds. With Adventure Sync activated, close the game and swing your arm while holding your phone, as though you’re walking. If you get it right, the phone’s accelerometer will record it as movement, adding distance to your in-game score.

For those willing to invest in an auto-walker, this trick’s for you. Activate Adventure Sync, then force-stop Pokémon GO so it’s not running in the background. Place your phone on the device’s cradle, set it swinging, and wait until you reach your target distance. Stop the device, reopen the game, and wait 10-20 seconds for the distance to update in-game.
And there you have it. A few easy tricks to fast-track your Pokémon GO progress while staying put. But remember, always play responsibly and in accordance with the game’s terms of service.
So, what’s your take? Have you tried any of these tricks, or do you have some of your own? Let us know in the comments below.
