Hacks & Drones Used to Avoid Walking in Pokémon Go

It’s hard to ignore just how much Pokémon Go has grown since its release. While currently only available in the US, Australia, and New Zealand, this juggernaut app has been installed more than the dating app Tinder and could even surpass Twitter in the near future. Hundreds of thousands of people across these regions are now motivated to explore their surrounding in the name of catching these virtual critters. However, there are those who just cannot be bothered to get out the house and walk around, instead, they’ve thought up a few solutions to avoid the associated exercise.

Earlier this week, a player took to Twitch in order to show off his cheating ways. Armed with a modified version of Pokémon Go for Android he demonstrated his ability to explore the virtual map without physically moving. This hack has seen many complaints pop up on the Pokémon Go subreddit, where fans saw this as ruining the game.

Other players have used more inventive ways of getting out of walking – one player attached his phone to a DJI Drone and enjoyed the game from the comfort of his own home. If the drone was going at a slow enough speed, the game would register it as walking and counting the distance travelled towards hatching an egg.

Pokémon Go is out now in the US, Australia, and New Zeland.
