'Pokemon Go' Cheats To Get Unlimited Incense [VIDEO]
Citing the huge success of Niantic's augmented reality game, "Pokemon Go," it's not at all surprising that a slew of cheats for the hit title are doing rounds online.
Incense is quite an important item in "Pokemon Go" as it draws Pokemon to player's location. As a result, players don't have to walk miles looking for Pokemon. Each player is offered two incense pots, and each of these pots lasts 30 minutes.
For players who have enough Pokecoins, incense are up for grabs at the "Pokemon Go" store, Yibada reported.
In order to activate incense, players need to simply tap the Pokeball at the bottom of the screen. Go to Items> Incense. The incense will appear on the main screen, simply tap it again to activate.
Check out the step-by-step process of how to get infinite incense in "Pokemon Go."
- Open Pokemon Go and use incense; here players can check how many minutes are left for them to use the incense.
- Go to Settings> Date and Time of the device.
- Ensure the Automatic date and time is turned is not turned on.
- Turn the time back to gain additional minutes for your incense.
Turning back the time on your device reportedly does not result in a ban from the game, unlike GPS spoofing. Apparently, this can be repeated as often as players want. This could be allowed because players live in different timezones.
"Pokemon Go" players either have to hit the road or visit PokeStops in order to get free PokeBalls. However, players can obtain unlimited PokeBalls, PokeCoins and Incense with the help of "Pokémon Go" cheats.
It's worth noting here that if you get caught, Niantic may give a warning first, but eventually suspend or even terminate your account.
Those thinking about pulling crazy stunts to get hold of Pokemon without running around should be thinking twice about it. Even if players hire someone to walk their "Pokemon Go" game for them, that's still considered cheating.
Players who were banned citing the use of GPS spoofing hacks or use of altered version of the game were no longer able to battle/claim a gym, collect PokeStops or catch Pokemon, Polygon reported.
The players noticed that the Pokemon would simply run away when hit with a PokeBall, contrary to adding itself to their collection.
This is a clear indication that Niantic is paying close attention to those players who are keen on bending the rules, and the studio is working on apt consequences for these actions.
Regrettably, nothing is official on the matter, so it's unclear what kind of offenses can be punished and to what extent.
