Pokemon Go is the game almost everyone is playing, and ithas its fans walking the streets at all hours of the day and night looking for augmented reality-based creatures. However, with the recent clamp-down on third-party apps and websites that were designed to give players an edge, what options remain that can give them an advantage? There are still lots of tips, tricks, and cheats that can help players out, and here are a few of them.

PokeBall thrower

Do you need some assistance when it comes to throwing a PokeBall? This tip involves the use of a low-tech prop made from paper that is as wide as your mobile phone display and two sticky notes on either side to help guide your finger.

This tip is a handy one, particularly at the moment, when you consider that there is a bug in the game which helps Pokemon escape faster than ever before.

Pokemon bot

The Pokemon bot is a cheat created by technically-minded players who wanted something to walk the map for them, collecting items along the way. We are not sure whether this will work though, as Niantic recently put a stop to many map apps gaining access to its servers. You can find out more about it here.

Pokemon Egg Incubator

This cheat was designed to fool the game into thinking that you are out walking and playing. All you have to do to get this to work is strap your phone to a ceiling fan, and this will enable you to sit back and relax while your eggs hatch.

Pokemon Go GPS spoofing

Pokemon Go requires your smartphones built-in ability to communicate with orbiting satellites to ascertain its location on the surface of the earth, but if you use a piece of $300 hardware, it is possible to send a false position signal to a satellite and give yourself an edge while playing Pokemon Go.

Doing so could get you arrested for using a signal jammer, but the upside (for a fanatical player) is that he/she would be able to transport their Pokemon hunter anywhere in the world without actually going there.

Battery pack Pokedex

If you have been playing the game for a while, you will know how quickly it can drain your smartphone battery. However, with a little time and ingenuity, there is a way for you to carry all the juice that is needed! This do-it-yourself phone case means that you can carry a spare battery with you! However, we feel this is a little over-engineered, and all that is required is a spare battery in your pocket.

So that is all of them. If you decide to implement any of them, please let us know how you get on by sharing your experience in the comment section below.
