    The feeling's mutual for us Mexicans, too. Except, y'know, we're below America.

    Not exactly sure how that'd work, since the game revolves around GPS data (I'm guessing). It'd be pretty darn simple to compare where your IP is to where your GPS location is. But, who knows? Go ahead and sign up. Worst case scenario, you don't get in.

    They're gonna be surprised when they start seeing field data from US testing that shows multiple activities well outside the US borders. Suffice to say, that could muddle their findings in sufficiently large numbers.

    Coz we all know people are going to try. And people are going to succeed.

    Lol other games made by the same company have been modified to be able to get in this case pokemon from one location at another location. However as this is a specific beta. it might not be the complete game anyways or the other pokemon are locked from being obtained. Though at final release, what I already said has been done before. It will happen again for a game with the label Pokemon as well lol.

    Spoofing a GPS location is trivial on Android.

    Despite the mojaority temp users being capable of that, it is unfair to even whales.

    But would the spoofed GPS then take every movement you make and move your location respectively? Even if it did, the landmarks and whatnot won't correspond. It'd expect you to walk to a certain location for gyms, PokeMarts (if they exist), PokeCenters (if they exist). Say you need to go 50 meters West to go to a Gym that is normally located at a street corner, but a mountain, or a factory, or what-have-you is there instead.
    Are you on drugs or something? You keep talking about whales, ghosts, and the devil.
