As a lot of people are going gaga over "Pokemon Go," unfortunately, there are some who opt to cheat to climb their level quickly. However, as every action has its consequences, Niantic warns that there is a possibility that these players might get banned.

GPS Spoofing

One of the most known "Pokemon Go" cheats is GPS Spoofing and this can get the players banned.

With GPS Spoofing, "Pokemon Go" gamers will have the ability to catch the monsters without even hunting and leaving their place by fooling the game's server.

Putting Your 'Pokemon Go' Account For Sale

There are "Pokemon Go" players who are selling their account for a lot of money when they already reached high levels, The Bitbag noted.

Niantic warned that selling, reselling or even leasing their "Pokemon Go" accounts is prohibited and can lead to the users' ban.

"Pokemon Go" players, too, should only play with a single account because using multiple can straightly result to termination of the accounts used.

Unauthorized Software

Downloading "Pokemon Go" from unauthorized software is also another form of cheating, as per the official "Pokemon Go" trainer guidelines.

The game aficionados who want to play "Pokemon Go" are recommended to download only from the legitimate online stores, like Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

The Consequence

Although, according to iTech Post, the "Pokemon Go" players who are banned can still play the game, but with limitations.

The "Pokemon Go" gamers will not be allowed to collect items or even battle with other players. They will even lose their ability to throw a Pokeball to a monster as it will be gone.

Soft Ban & Perma-Ban

Niantic's soft ban, evidently, won't have a big impact on the "Pokemon Go" players as it will only last for a couple of hours. After that, everything will be back to normal.

During the "Pokemon Go" beta days, Niantic is stricter with its rule, but it eventually becomes compassionate after that.

Niantic had inflicted perma-ban to the "Ingress" cheaters before and even imposed a worldwide ban without a warning.

So, the game critics believe that Niantic might also apply this action to "Pokemon Go" cheaters.
