Pokemon Go Hacks 2021

Why do we need Pokemon GO hacks? This is an important question. Pokemon GO is not your typical handheld video game. The player is required to physically go out and explore their neighbourhood to find new Pokémon, engage in Pokemon Gym battles, and level up their character. 

While this sounds like an innovative way to integrate gaming with physical activity, it may not be convenient for all players. You might not be able to catch certain Pokémon as they are generated far from your location. Moreover, you could just be someone who just wants to enjoy the game without having to walk for miles at a time.

This is where our Pokemon GO hacks come in. It takes advantage of two methods: GPS Spoofing and Joystick Control. 

GPS Spoofing tricks the game into placing you at a virtual location of your choice, hence allowing you to catch Pokémon that are specific to certain areas. Joystick Control allows you to move in-game with the use of a joystick button so that you are not required to physically walk around the map. 

So without making you wait any longer, here is my step-by-step guide!
