Despite only really playing at the weekend due to working I'm now 180k through Level 31. Today I cheated somewhat. The M25 was stationary, so I opened the app and left it on. I had 8 eggs cooking and between junctions 18 and 22 managed to hatch 7 of them. Mantine, 2x Exegcute, Krabby, Eevee, Togepi and Magby.

Congrats Abbey on reaching Level 30, and commiserations Spammy on not being able to log in.

Bad thing is my naughty Blissey which I cheated to get has a red line through it and can't be put in a gym.

That's not bad! That's good Grin Cheating is not good and I'm glad to hear they're cracking down on it.

How can you cheat to get Pokémon?

FreeNiki · 22/06/2017 23:49

How do you cheat to get one?

I'm so close to my Blissey! Walking my Chansey and just 4 candies away! I can't wait to get her.

PossumInAPearTree · 22/06/2017 23:52

I paid some online company to find me a Blissey.........caught it in California and I was too stupid and logged on at home 40 mins later and got a snotty message from niantic. But that was months ago and I thought I'd got away with it!

WhatToDoAboutThis2017 · 22/06/2017 23:54

Well I'm glad to hear they keep notes on these things.

FreeNiki · 22/06/2017 23:58

PokemonGo does the heart graphic show the lost CP like it does during a battle?

I think it does. When I put mine in the heart had clear space at the top that filled higher when i fed it. Unless I was seeing things.

My cousin in Australia caught a Kangaskhan for me.

I am not going to Australia any time soon.

It's only a game it is a bit heavy handed.

I also saw the heart with space at the top which then filled up.

WhatToDoAboutThis2017 · 23/06/2017 00:39

No, it's not heavy handed. Allowing people to cheat with no consequences makes it unfair on the rest of us who play the game in good faith.

PickAChew · 23/06/2017 00:45

The block on cheaters is awesome because there's a suspicious number of level 40 players up here! The odd illicit regional or blissey is a small price to pay if it means that people who have spoofed whole accounts through all the levels of the game, just for lolz don't get to dominate.

PickAChew · 23/06/2017 00:45

And turn it around - it's only a game, so not worth being irate about :)

FreeNiki · 23/06/2017 00:46

Quite.

WhatToDoAboutThis2017 · 23/06/2017 00:46

I agree, PickAChew. Though thankfully I haven actually come across any Level 40 players. The highest I've seen is 32, and that's my BiL who I know didn't cheat.

So hopefully no cheaters in my area Smile

PickAChew · 23/06/2017 00:48

Heh - I'm level 34 and CBA, some days. But there's several orders of magnitude between 34 and 40!

WhatToDoAboutThis2017 · 23/06/2017 00:48

And I mean, by the logic "It's only a game it is a bit heavy handed.", why do we bother sanctioning people who cheat in the Olympics?

I mean, they're only games after all. May as well not bother. Who gives a fuck about all the hard work the others put in, right?

WhatToDoAboutThis2017 · 23/06/2017 00:49

Very true, PickAChew. Level 40 is a big jump.

I play every second I'm not working Grin

PickAChew · 23/06/2017 00:50

OK, not several orders of magnitude, but 4 times the XP rrequires. I've been playing almost the full year

FreeNiki · 23/06/2017 00:51

Because an olympic gold obtained by cheating means money, sponsorship, etc. It is bordering on fraud and profiteering.

You seriously cannot compare that to pokemon go Confused

WhatToDoAboutThis2017 · 23/06/2017 00:53

I can and I am comparing it. The principal is the same. The majority of players are honest and work really hard to get to where they are, putting in the time with gyms and walking and so on.

Of course being an Olympian is way out of the league, but the actual principal is exactly the same, and that's the point I was making.

PickAChew · 23/06/2017 00:54

Likewise, you have nothing tangible to lose by being penalised for cheating in Pokemon go :)

FreeNiki · 23/06/2017 00:54

And there is no hard work involved in this game at all....it is 50% luck and 50% waiting for an event to get what you need.

WhatToDoAboutThis2017 · 23/06/2017 01:00

And there is no hard work involved in this game at all....it is 50% luck and 50% waiting for an event to get what you need.

Absolutely incorrect. It requires a lot of hard work to make sure you're powering up the right Pokemon and playing the game to get the best out of it, not to mention all the walking required.

The more you walk, the more eggs you hatch and the better chance of Wonder and rare Pokemon being hatched or caught. The better Pokemon the better you are at gyms, and the more coins you earn by taking them down. More coins equals more incubators and the cycle starts again.

For the casual player, no, it's not hard work. But if you actually put a lot into the game then yes, it does require effort and work and a certain amount of skill in regards to picking the right Pokemon and knowing when to hold off/power up.

PokemonGo · 23/06/2017 01:03

I play a lot, I'm half way through level 37 and I've never cheated and I've only ever spent £11 over the whole year so I'm delighted when people who cheat get caught. If it didn't effect me when other people cheat I wouknt care but it does effect me. When I'm fighting through a multistory gym full of maxed out blisseys the thought that people have paid for them pisses me off. 🤷🏻‍♀️. I'm not going to lose any sleep over it but it is annoying and lessens my enjoyment of the game.

So, yeah, hahahahaha at the red lines through the cheaters Pokémon 😁😁😁😁😁
