Default GOTY Pokemon Go Released Today!

Currently can't log in. But, I wanna be the very best. Like no one ever was. To catch them is my real test, and to train them is my cause. I expect I'll be searching the Alaskan frontier, far and wide, each Pokemon to understand...the power that's inside.

There were rumors that ios and Android users were getting banned.
Not sure what they're getting banned from exactly.

That's because the Priest have used incense to lure users.

GPS hacking, apparently. I guess if you live in a rural area it can be quite a distance to the nearest pokestop or gym, so people fake that they are in a different place on the map.

From what I have read, you don't actually get banned, just nothing in the app functions. the pokemon run away as soon as you get near, gyms don't function for you etc. Supposedly it only last an hour or so.

Thanks for the update. I guess you would simply have to have an up to date gps hacker, one newer than the Poke-App.
I can't imagine how many resources are being wasted for people to progress in this game. Other than the stupidity injuries, etc.

These aren't rumors. Pokemon GO users on ios and android are being banned/shunned from the rest of humanity.
