Spoofing is a term used to describe hacks where someone successfully falsifies their location or identity. A number of Pokémon GO players used this method trick the app into using false GPS coordinates – either through rooting their smartphones or through third-party apps available on the Google Play store. Once a player successfully finds a way to change their GPS coordinates, they’ll be able to travel anywhere on the Pokémon GO map, catching Pokémon from far away. Additionally, spoofing players can battle far away gyms, or do basically anything else that requires players to previously move physically in Pokémon GO’s world to accomplish.
