Pokémon GO is a fresh, fun, and active approach to the typical Pokémon game. It allows people to explore the outdoors and look for Pokémon as they go. However, as all dynamic activities go, it gets tiring.

Luckily, there are tweaked Pokémon GO apps that you could try that allows you to move around in the game without actually having to take a single step at all in real life.

They offer the same features as Pokémon GO and more, so there's a lot to talk about these third-party apps and how to install them.

Let's get started, shall we?

iSpoofer Pokémon GO++

Right off the bat, iSpoofer is a popular app that can fake your game location. However, this app is only available for iOS devices.

So, if you are an Android device user, you will have to look for other options.

iSpoofer is fully compatible with GPX files, so if you have a GPS map saved, you can easily import it to the app.

You can choose to go anywhere, depending on your preference. Plus, it has a user-friendly interface which makes it easy for beginners to navigate.

You have to get the AppValley Vip, Tweakbox, or other tweaked App store apps first through their website to install the app. After installing, you can now download the iSpoofer app through app.

If you prefer not to jailbreak your device, you can still download PokeGo++ through another method.

PokeGo++ by ipogo—previously PokeGo++ 2.0—is another version of PokeGo++ that you can download through Panda Helper.

The difference between this version from the previous PokeGo++ is that this version doesn't require jailbreaking but instead uses a third-party tweak.

Here is how you download the app on your device:

  • First, open Safari using your device and head to the iPogo website.
  • Next, select the version of the app and press Install.
  • You can choose to use Signulous or Sideloadly to install iPogo.
  • After that, search for iPoGo.
  • Once the app appears, install it.
  • Finally, launch the app and start playing!

PokeGo++ by ipogo also provides additional features other than the in-game joystick, such as location spoofing, patrol mode, etc. This app is a steal, between these fantastic features and not having to jailbreak.


TutuApp Pokémon GO, commonly known as PokeGo++, is also a tweaked version of the original Pokémon GO game.

Everything is the same, except for the joystick you can use to move around in the game without taking a single step in real life.

So, you can play the game in the comfort of your home.

Here are the steps on how to download PokeGo++ on your device:

  1. First, install the TuTuApp through their website.
  2. After installing, launch TuTuApp on your device.
  3. Next, head to the search bar and look for PokéGO.
  4. Click on the app to start the installation process.
  5. Finally, launch the game and enjoy!


While it's pretty easy to get this app, there's a slight downside. To install the app, you must first jailbreak your device––that'll require both effort and money.

But, if you're still good about this, nothing can stop you from playing now.

Are the Tweaked Pokémon GO Apps Safe to Install?

However, installing the tweaked Pokémon GO app is not 100 percent safe. Since you are using a third-party tweak, you are at risk of being banned from the game.

Keep this in mind when deciding whether to go with tweaked Pokemon GO apps or with the original game instead.

iPogo Best Alternative – MockGo

A safer option would be using a trusted location spoofer like MockGo. MockGo allows you to change your location in-game with minimal risk of getting banned.

Thanks to its walking simulation feature, it looks like you are taking steps instead of suspiciously teleporting.

Here are the steps on how to use the app:

Step 1. First, download MockGo on your PC.

Step 2. Now, launch the application. Then, connect your device to your computer.

Step 3. Once connected, click Start on the main screen. Next, head to the location by activating Teleport mode on the screen's upper-right corner.

Step 4. After that, enter the address of where you want to go on the search bar and click Go.

Step 5. Finally, you can virtually go to your desired location. Click on Move Here to teleport to the GPS.

You can also simulate movement from two or multiple spots using MockGo. You won't get all these features for free.

If you're interested in using MockGo, you can get a monthly license for $9.95 and a lifetime license for $59.95.

Using Tweaked Pokemon GO Apps

There are many tweaked apps that you could play instead of the original Pokémon GO game, such as iSpoofer and PokeGo++.

These apps allow you to move in-game without moving in real life, which is quite convenient.

However, Niantic is very particular with tweaked apps and will ban you instantly if you ever get busted.

To avoid getting banned, you can either play the legitimate Pokémon GO game or use a location spoofer like MockGo, which simulates walking or car movement.
