Pokemon Go Players Propose “Lock Pokemon” Feature After the Recent Hack

Trainers, with all that happened to the Australian Pokemon Go player FleeceKing, many players began to fear losing their Pokemon Go accounts, Pokemon, and other content.

For those who are not familiar with the whole situation, the famous Pokemon Go player, content creator, and player that we are proud of has experienced his nightmare. His account was hacked, and the hacker publicly announced it, while deleting his Pokemon and other content.

Since this attack, many Pokemon Go players began to fear for their accounts, fear for losing all Pokemon, and everything they have on the app. Many recommend a new feature, an option that will lock Pokemon and items and prohibit their transfer or removal.

This could work, and it would also be very useful for all players. You won’t have to worry about accidentally transferring maxed-out Pokemon, or special Shiny Pokemon because they will be “locked.”

Pokemon Go players have already suggested this in the past, and we think that now, with the recovery exploit that can hack almost any Pokemon Go account, it’s about time they introduce a “Lock Pokemon” feature.

With shadow Pokemon becoming so sought after, can we get a lock on the purification button?
