The number and quality of Pokémon that you can collect in a given day when playing Pokémon Go are determined by numerous factors. If you live in a big city, for example, you may have a better chance of catching rare Pokémon and have more PokéStops to explore than if you are in a rural area.
One of the ways that players have found around this problem is spoofing GPS location and one of the tools you can use to do that is iSpoofer. iSpoofer works by tricking your iOS device into thinking you are in area with more Pokémon to catch, allowing you to explore more advantageous areas and enjoy the game more.
But there is indication that iSpoofer may be shutting down. This article explores what you can do when iSpoofer shuts down.
iSpoofer Officially Shutting Down
There have been numerous reports online that iSpoofer has shut down. For example, Reddit has numerous discussions related to this topic with may users seeming to confirm that iSpoofer is no more.
iSpoofer subscribers have also received email confirmation in an email that reads, in part;
“Your Subscription to iSpoofer Pro Plan as been cancelled due to the creator deleting the product.”
Just to make sure, we visited the official website and found a “Site maintenance” banner that seemed to confirm that iSpoofer is no longer available.
Why Did iSpoofer Shut Down?
Using iSpoofer is against the Pokémon Go terms and conditions that don’t allow the use of third-party apps and recently Niantic banned a lot of people who were using iSpoofer.
Since it is no longer viable for playing Pokémon Go, iSpoofer developers can no longer make this app available. If you already have iSpoofer, you will find that it no longer works with Pokémon Go.
Will iSpoofer Work Again?
It is unlikely that iSpoofer will work again any time. This is mostly because Niantic has blacklisted iSpoofer and it can therefore no longer work with Pokémon Go. If you still want to spoof your location to play Pokémon Go, you will need to look for a different alternative.

Any iSpoofer Alternative Worth Trying?
The best iSpoofer alternative to try is MockGo. This desktop tool is very easy to use and since you won’t need to install any apps on your device, there is a reduced chance that your account will be banned.
The following are the main reasons why MockGo might be a better alternative;
- You don’t need to jailbreak your iPhone to use MockGo to spoof your location.
- The process is simple and 100% safe, ensuring that your account will not be compromised in any way.
- It allows you to change the location on your iOS device to anywhere in the world easily.
- It also allows you to simulate GPS movement on your device between two or multiple spots at a specified speed.
To use MockGo to spoof the location on your iOS device, download and install MockGo onto your computer. Then follow these simple steps;
Step 1: Connect the iPhone to the computer
To begin, connect the iPhone to the computer and then launch MockGo. Click on “Start”.
Step 2: Enter the Target Location
Once the program detects the device, you should see a map with the current location. Click on “Teleport Mode” icon from upper right corner of the screen.
Enter the address or the coordinates of the target location in the search bar so it loads on the map.
Step 3: Spoof the Location
Drag the pin around to further refine the location and then select “Move Here” to change the location on your device automatically.
Now you can launch Pokémon Go and your avatar should be in the new location. It is however important to pay attention to the cooldown duration before taking any kind of action in the game. This will help reduce the chance that you could get banned.
It is also a good idea to wait a few minutes before switching to a new location and make sure any locations you choose are realistic in terms of distances from one another.
