Right now, players are unsure which specific "third-party services" will trigger the cheater's mark, though in the past folks have been known to use "mappers" that tell them where rare monsters will spawn, spoofing (using fake Global Positioning System locations so you can spawn anywhere), or bots (programs that find monsters for you). They also "may not behave as expected", as Niantic's support has indicated.
I hope it eats the pokemon around it in your inventory.
Aside from being publicly branded or slashed, the "Pokemon" caught through "Pokemon Go" hacks and cheats can no longer do their intended abilities.
Pokemon GO is available on iOS and Android.
Since its launch a year ago, Pokemon Go has been plagued by issues that revolve around the cheating techniques that make the game extremely easy for the players.
Niantic is putting in more work to make sure that Pokemon GO players are all playing by the rules. As aforementioned, there are some trainers who noticed that the so-called mark of shame was removed whenever they evolve such monster, Polygon reported. However, they are quick to respond.
The whole "Pokemon GO" player base are well-oriented with the massive gym and collaborative raid updates including the anti-bot/spoof measures where spoofed and sniped Pokemon are marked with a red slash. Moreover, with developer Niantic branding cheaters, Gyms are also being seen as a lot fairer as they were before too. The good news is that Niantic is slowly rolling out more options for lower-level players (in less than a day, it's gone from level 35 to 31).
