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.

All you have to do is install the app on to your device and log in to the app using the same ID that you use for Pokémon Go.

Is Defit Safe to use For Hatching Eggs?

Defit seems safe to use and you don't even need to root the Android device to use it. But 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.

What Needs to be Considered to Play Pokémon Go Defit 2021?

Even though it is safe and convenient to use Defit, there are several things that you will need to keep in mind when using this app. These considerations will allow you to remain well within the Pokémon Go rules and avoid getting your account banned. They include the following:

Respect the Cooldown Time

Cooldown in Pokémon Go is the amount of time you need to wait before you can complete another in-game action. For example, after you catch a Pokémon or complete a spin at a PokéStop, you will need to wait a pre-determined period of time (maximum 2 hours) before you can catch another Pokémon. Violating this cooldown time often leads to a soft ban.

Soft Ban

When you're in a soft ban, you will not be able to catch a Pokémon at all. In fact, all Pokémon that you try to catch will run from you. You will also not be able to spin at PokéStops. When you try to, you will not be able to drop any items at all.

Is there Any iOS Movement Simulator?

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 do that is MockGo. It is an ideal way for iOS device users to simulate GPS movement and/or change GPS location on their devices quickly and easily.

It is very easy 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.

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.
