First off, Trainers, we want to make it absolutely clear: we don’t condone spoofing, cheating, or any form of dishonest play in Pokémon GO. What we’re about to delve into is merely an intriguing account of a player who took a, shall we say, “unconventional approach” to the game. Consider it a glimpse into the shadowy corners of the Pokémon GO universe, and nothing more.
The story that recently caught our eye is both mind-boggling and a tad disheartening: a player managed to complete the Timed Investigation: Master Ball Research in just one day. Yes, you read that right, one day.
Clearly, the player used third-party apps to bend the rules, but that’s not the kicker; this individual played the game on 16 phones and successfully completed 60 Raids within that single day.
For context, let’s talk about what a colossal task this actually is. The Timed Investigation to acquire the Master Ball is far from a cakewalk. A player is expected to catch 1000 Pokémon, win 60 Raids, hatch 30 Eggs, catch 100 different species of Pokémon, and accomplish several other challenging tasks. Most legit Trainers will probably be grinding until the last second on November 21, 2023, to finish it.
But let’s shift gears for a moment. In a somewhat related twist, Niantic has been altering the rule book when it comes to Master Ball inventory. Initially, the Pokémon GO Help Center was quite clear: “One-Master-Ball Inventory Limit.” This meant you couldn’t stockpile the holy grail of Poké Balls. However, Niantic has recently removed this limitation text from the Help Center. This move raises an exciting question: Can trainers now carry more than one Master Ball?
So, while we frown upon cheating and spoofing, such accounts can sometimes illuminate the fringes of what’s possible – or permissible – in Pokémon GO. Even as we shake our heads at the audacity of some players, we can’t help but wonder: with the “One Master Ball Limit” text gone, are we stepping into a new era of Master Ball possibilities?
Keep your eyes peeled, Trainers, for more updates on this intriguing shift in the Master Ball narrative. And as always, play fair and have fun.
