So i was wondering what if someone built a little trackball device that spoofs your location from your PC to your phone. Is it possible? (I know it is) Anyone care to shed some light on this?:creep:


EDIT: @cooroxd found something similar and confirmed working, thanks goes to @cooroxd
After some research, this is what I found and it's the most recent. The app is Ingress which coincidentally is made by Niantic. So if this tutorial works for ingress then it will most likely work with pokemon go. I'd try right now but my phone's overheating atm, and it's in the fridge. https://eningressspooflocation.blogspot.ca/2016_01_01_archive.html

I believe you can do it straight off your phone! It's not much of an idea because many people already do it lol

GPS Spoofing is against the TOS.

I already know it's been made off of your phone, my idea or i should say my question is, would it be possible where you use ether the arrow keys or a track ball mouse, to update or i should say navigate your spoof information

instead of constantly having to switch through apps to update your spoof location

We'll see how you like it when you're banned from PkMnGO.
You're in a site about reverse engineering game systems and you're whining about breaking the TOS of a game? Why are you even here, then?

What's the point of cheating a game that trying to get people out and get exercise and be social, while playing a game. You may as well just play normal pokemon games and stay home (which are way more fun anyways). Its like using a cheat code in a strategy game, kind of destroys the point. Also I'm sure such a program would be easily detectable (if they even bother to stop/prevent it)

Some people stand on their feet 8+ hours a day, 5+ days a week, and the prospect of going on a hike after work or on their day off probably isn't appealing. There's also some people who can't easily (or at all) move around town on their feet, like pregnant women, paraplegics, etc. Saying "Oh well, they shouldn't play this game" is pointless.

I'm all for reverse engineering, but all I'm saying is there is a high chance you can get permabanned from the game for this. It's not worth doing if you just want to play the game. No need to be an ass.

I really don't want to need to go into my neighbor's yard to capture pokemon. There's going out and getting exercise, and then there's trespassing. It also doesn't help there's a pokemon in the middle of the street...

IN WHAT part was Sonic_Cee_dee an ass??? The point he made is why are you here if you're going to talk about violating the TOS of a game, and if you're 'all up for reverse engineering' you'd be violating the TOS as well. And you know what, If i get banned then

LMAO. Did you just compare someone's inability to walk around in the neighborhood at night or whether they live in a bad neighborhood or simply just tired to 'using a cheat code in a strategy game'.

EDIT: Well thanks to your idea, I edited this picture in your honor.

When he said 'why are you even here' and told me I was 'whining' for pointing out a legitimate point.

Listen dude. i dont really know @Sonic_Cee_Dee so i'm not defending him for his fame (no offense to Sonic), but how are you going to come to a thread title you read, then come and talk about breaching a TOS....ON A HOMEBREW site. That's like me going to a game developers company and walking in and saying "GAMES ARE BAD FOR PEOPLE"

Then you whine about him calling you out on it, then call him an 'Ass'? Please tell me, that you understand what's wrong with this picture. My mama taught me, if you don't have anything good to say, then go get chipotle.

Anyways back to the topic...i would love to see something similar to this made, also has anyone tried using spoof locations?

out of curiosity, how do you do GPS spoofing?
how does that work?
Android at least has a built-in "Mock Location" feature for developers which allows sending fake location data via Android debug utilities on PC or directly on the device if you're rooted. iOS appears to have something similar for jailbroken users?

While that does spoof locations Pokemon GO doesnt like that and it will act up if it detects that in use. Something else needs to be done.
