This method should give you a good dose of experience quickly.


Impersonation is a Pokemon Go hack that allows your character to spawn anywhere in the world, this seems like a great way to nab regional exclusives, or if you live in a rural area, a way easy to catch pokemon without going to town. Unfortunately, it is not the case. Players who spoof their location are very likely to be banned or have any Pokémon they caught during the spoofing removed. Many identity theft methods also require you to jailbreak your phone. Jailbreaking is against Apple's Terms of Service and can significantly reduce your device's cybersecurity.
