Defit Pokémon GO: How to Use Defit for Pokémon GO

by Aaron Roussey Updated On Nov 9, 2023 Published On Jul 15, 2021 Tips

Hatching eggs in Pokémon GO requires a lot of walking. But often times walking the distances needed to hatch eggs in Pokémon GO is just not an option.

To continue playing the game without needing to walk long distances, players have come up with numerous solutions including location spoofing and GPS movement simulation.

But spoofing your GPS or simulating GPS movement can have a lot of consequences, including a ban on your account. But what if there was a way to hatch eggs in Pokémon GO without needing to walk or use a GPS spoofer?

Well, in this guide, we will be looking at the DeFit app, a solution that promises to allow you to do just that.

What is DeFit Pokémon GO?

DeFit is an app that adds activity records to its fitness database, allowing users to choose a running speed and/or steps of the activity.

As such, the app can be very useful when playing Pokémon GO without needing to walk around too much.

Unfortunately, DeFit is only available for Android users, so iOS users won't be able to use this app. However, there are numerous iOS Pokémon GO walkers to pick from.

How to Use DeFit to Play Pokémon GO

Step 1: Go to the Play Store to install the DeFit App on to your device. You will also need to install the Google Fit app if you don't already have it.

Can You Be Banned for Using DeFit with Pokémon GO?

Now the question arises: Is DeFit safe to use with Pokémon GO without getting banned? DeFit itself is considered safe because it doesn't directly interact with Pokémon GO. Instead, it sends data to Google Fitness, which Pokémon GO then reads and acts upon.

However, you should use it carefully. If you suddenly move 1000 kilometers in an hour, Pokémon GO may detect it as suspicious or ignore it altogether. To be on the safe side, we recommend using it in moderation to avoid detection by Pokémon GO. Limit the total distance you travel every week to about 500KM and you shouldn't experience any problems.

This way, you can still hatch eggs or collect Pokémon candy while at home. There haven't been many reports of Niantic banning people from using DeFit, but it's always wise to be cautious if you're not completely certain about its safety.

Is There Any DeFit iOS Alternative?

The DeFit app is only available for Android devices. Therefore, iOS devices need a reliable GPS movement simulator to achieve the same result.

One of the best tools to help you auto walk in Pokémon GO that is MockGo. It allow iOS device users to simulate GPS movement with customized speed and route, and change GPS location on their devices quickly and easily.

It is very easy and safe to use and since it is a desktop solution, you don't need to jailbreak the iOS device or install any apps on it.

Now MockGo is compatible with the latest iPhone 15 and iOS 17 as well. 

You can follow these simple steps to use MockGo to simulate GPS movement on your iOS device:

Step 1: Install the Program

Download and install MockGo on to your computer. Open the program after installation and then click on "Start". Connect the iOS device to the computer.

Step 2: Simulate Movement Between Two Spots

Click on the 2nd icon on the upper-right corner of the screen. Then, choose a destination that you would like to use in the search function. A small box will appear, showing the total distance to the selected destination.

Use the slider at the bottom of the screen to choose the speed that you would like to use. Drag the slider to indicate the desired speed and then click "Move Here."

In the next box that appears, select the number of time that you want to move between the two spots. Then click "Start" to begin the simulated GPS movement.

Step 3: Simulate Movement along Multiple Spots

Click on the 3rd icon on the upper right corner of the screen and use the map or the search box at the top to choose all the spots you want to travel through.

A dialogue box will appear, indicating the distance you will cover. Click "Move Here" and then drag the speed slider at the bottom to select the speed you want to be moving at.

A new dialogue box will appear, where you can select the number of times you would like to move along the specified route. Click "Start" to begin the simulated movement.

DeFit Pokémon GO Not Working? How to Troubleshoot?

Yes, DeFit should still log your steps in Google Fit. If it's not working correctly, the issue might be related to the connection between Google Fit and Adventure Sync, which can affect even legitimate steps.

To fix this, you can try the following troubleshooting steps:

  1. Turn off Adventure Sync in your Pokémon GO settings.
  2. Close Pokémon GO completely.
  3. Open Google Fit and go to its settings.
  4. Find "Connected apps" and remove Pokémon GO from the list.
  5. Close Google Fit.
  6. Reopen Pokémon GO and turn on Adventure Sync. It should ask you to connect to Google Fit again.

This method is often used to reset the connection when Adventure Sync is acting up. It usually works, but keep in mind that Niantic has had some issues with Adventure Sync in recent updates, causing problems for even legitimate players.

If all else fails, there are other apps similar to DeFit that you can try. Sit Sync is one of them and could be a good alternative, but you may encounter the same issues because Adventure Sync is the root of the problem.


This guide proves that it is actually possible to play Pokémon GO without needing to walk the long distances needed to hatch eggs in the game. The DeFit app is a good Android solution and iOS device users can simulate GPS movement using MockGo.

It is however important to ensure that you adhere to the rules we have discussed above such as limiting the total distance covered to avoid getting your account banned.
