Pokémon GO has taken over the world and eventually players would want to cheat the game. Lucky for you, there are Pokémon GO cheats to fake the location on your iPhone or Android to catch more Pokémon.

But Wait! Before you read the steps, read first the Pokémon GO Trainer Guidelines regarding cheating below.

“Don’t do it. Play fair. Pokémon GO is meant to be played on a mobile device and get you outside to explore your world! Methods of cheating, unfortunately, are limited only by cheaters’ imaginations, but include at a minimum the following: using modified or unofficial software; playing with multiple accounts (one account per player, please); sharing accounts; using tools or techniques to alter or falsify your location; or selling/trading accounts.”

If you’re caught cheating, Niantic can just warn you at first but it can eventually lead to a suspension or the termination of your account. You’ve been warned about using Pokémon GO Cheats. Use at your own risk.

Here are the steps to fake location on your iPhone and Android to catch more Pokémon, per GottaBeMobile.

Step 1:  Jailbreak your iPhone or Root your Android phone

  • The first step depends on the software of your phone. It is easier to jailbreak an iPhone on iOS 9.1 than root a Galaxy S7 and other android phones.

Step 2: Hide your Jailbreak/Root

  • After successfully doing the first step, you need to hide your jailbreak and root. For iPhone users, you need to install tsProtector while Android users can use Hide My Root or XDA.

Step 3: Download Location Faking App

  • The best location faking app for iPhone is LocationFaker and it is available in the Cydia store for $2.99. On the other hand, Android users will need to download Fake Location Spoofer for free.

That’s it. After installing all the apps, you can now fake your location and go into the Pokémon GO app. You can now see Pokémon in other locations. Catch ‘Em All but don’t get caught.
