It has increasingly become necessary to find cheats and hacks that will make catching Pokémon in Pokémon Go that much easier.
Over time, as the cheats and hacks became depleted, many of them proved ineffective or didn't work at all.
One of the most common resources that Pokémon Go players use to find these hacks is PokeGo++.
This complete review will help you determine if PokeGo++ is a good resource when looking to catch Pokémon Go today.
PokeGo++ is a hacked version of Pokémon Go that comes with a built-in joystick feature, allowing you to teleport your location to anywhere in the world and catch Pokémon without having to move.
This app was developed by Global++ for the sole purpose of helping players catch Pokémon much more easily.
To create PokeGo++, the developers had to reverse engineer Pokémon Go to allow you to set the location of your device to anywhere in the world and PokeGo++ would immediately find the rarest Pokémon characters to significantly increase your XP.
The app was released for both Android and iOS devices. To install it on iOS devices, you will need to use the Build Store or Cydia Impactor which can allow you to run apps like PokeGo++ without having to jailbreak the device. Android users can install PokeGo++ using Fly GPS.
Whenever you use a third-party spoofing app like PokeGo++ to play Pokémon Go, there is always the risk that your account could get banned.
Therefore, it is a good idea to use a secondary account with PokeGo++ just to be safe.
Niantic is less likely to detect an iOS location changer such as MockGo, which is a desktop-based program and regarded as a safer way to help you play Pokémon Go without moving.
Global++, the group of developers responsible for tweaked versions of the popular Pokemon GO game, has been sued by Niantic.
PokeGo++ gives consumers an unfair advantage while also infringing on Niantic's intellectual property rights.
Global++ was ordered to stop developing PokeGO++ App and any work on reverse-engineering Niantic's official code as a result of the lawsuit.
The official Global++ website has been taken down, as have the official Discord servers.
In our opinion, PokeGo ++ is not a ideal and safe way to spoof Pokémon Go nowadays.
Unfortunately, you are not able to get the official PokeGO++ file anymore as the creator of PokeGO++ the Global++ stopped the release of the PokeGO++ after being sued by Niantic.
Niantic's lawsuit was built around the PokeGO++'s advantage that players get while using the modified version, but also intellectual property rights.
However, you can still find some online resources which allow you to download the PokeGO++. Just make sure it is safe and virus-free before you downloading the file.
Even though PokeGo++ doesn't work as we thought, you can still find PokeGo++ on the Build Store, which allows you to install PokeGo++ on your iOS device without having to jailbreak the device.
Please note however that Build Store has a subscription-based model that will cost you $9.99 a year.
To install PokeGo++ without jailbreaking your device, follow these simple steps:
Step 1: Uninstall any versions of Pokémon Go or PokeGo++ that you may have installed on the device.
Step 2: Sign up for a BuildStore account, purchase a subscription and then register the iOS device.
Step 3: Open Safari on the registered device and then go to the iPogo, Pokémon Go++ or PokeGo++ website.
Step 4: Simply tap "Install" and PokeGo++ will be installed on the device.
PokeGO++ could have been installed via Cydia Impactor which was available for both Mac and Windows.
You would have to download PokeGO++ and verify the certificates with one of the apps such as Cydia Impactor by following the steps below.
Step 1: Download and install Cydia Impactor on your computer.
Step 2: Download PokeGO++ IPA file onto your computer.
Step 3: Make sure you have iTunes installed on your computer and that you are logged in with the same iTunes ID that you used on your iPhone.
Step 4: Open iTunes and connect your iPhone to your computer.
Step 5: Open Cydia Impactor. Your device will appear in the Cydia Impactor's drop-down menu.
Step 6: Drag the Pokemon GO++.IPA file into the Cydia Impactor. It will prompt you to validate your iTunes Account; simply put in the required information to proceed.
Step 7: Cydia Impactor will sign the Pokemon GO++ IPA file so that your iPhone won't reject it.
Step 8: After the installation is complete, open Pokemon GO to have fun.
If you would rather not use PokeGo++ or any of its other successors, the best way to change the location on Pokémon Go is MockGo iPhone GPS spoofer.
With MockGo, there are no apps to install on your device which means little chance of getting banned by Niantic.
You will also not need to uninstall Pokémon Go from your device, meaning that you can continue to play just as you had, except that you will now have access to better PokéStops and Gyms.
The following are the program's key features:
Use the following steps to use MockGo to play Pokémon Go without moving:
Step 1: Download the latest version of the program and install it on your computer.
Step 2: In the main screen, select "Start" to begin.
Step 3: Connect the iPhone to the computer using the device's lightning cable.
Step 4: When a map appears on the screen, choose "Teleport Mode" from the top-right corner and then enter the location in the search bar. You can also choose a location by simply dragging the pin to anywhere on the map.
Step 5: The pin will move to the selected location. Click on "Move Now" in the dialogue box that appears to set this new location as your current location.
You can then open Pokémon Go and continue to capture the Pokémon in the new location.
As Niantic has cracked down on many Pokémon Go hacks and cheats, solutions like PokeGo++ have been forced to cease operation altogether.
Even if you can find one that works, you increase the risk that Niantic will ban your account permanently.
It is therefore advisable to use a solution like MockGo that can remain undetected since it is not installed on your device.
