Pokémon GO players involved in GPS spoofing, tricking the game into thinking you are in locations that you are not, along with other methods of cheating, may find themselves receiving a permanent ban.
In a post on the official Pokémon GO website, the game’s developers at Niantic announced that they are terminating accounts of players that show signs of cheating.
“Our main priority with Pokémon GO is to provide a fair, fun, and legitimate game experience for all players. If our system has determined that you cheated, then you will receive an email stating that your account has been terminated.”
If anyone feels their account has been banned by mistake, there is a way to make an appeal in the Pokémon GO Help Center.

The Official Pokémon Channel on YouTube released a new trailer for Pokémon Sun and Moon introducing everyone to Turtonator, who might possibly rival Geodude for the title of “Most 90s Sounding Name.”
The Blast Turtle Pokémon is a Fire- and Dragon-type that has the ability Shell Armor, which prevents it from receiving critical hits. Its unique Shell Trap move allows it to lay a trap at the beginning of a turn. If hit with a physical attack during that turn, Turtonator will counter with a hard-hitting explosion.
Last week, several new pokémon were unveiled, along with Sun and Moon‘s bad guys, Team Skull.
