One of the greatest fads of 2016 is Pokémon Go and I was one of the early adopters. For a game that broke records in a very short time, it’s really surprising seeing it fade away so soon. Sure, there are still lots of people playing this game but the craze isn’t what it used to be. After playing the game for some weeks, it got boring and I uninstalled it without remorse.
Well, I re-installed it two weeks ago and I did for just one reason– to cheat and risk a ban. Using a certain Cydia tweak, I teleported to the US to see what it feels like playing the game outside Nigeria.
Pokémon Go in Nigeria is boring
Trust me when I say this, but playing Pokémon Go in Nigeria is very boring. The game isn’t yet officially supported in Nigeria and this is why it’s so hard to find Poké Stops and Gyms; finding Pokémons in certain parts of Lagos isn’t even easy.
Here is a comparison of the how the game looks like in Lagos compared to New York:
I’m not really sure I need to spell it out that that the map on the left is for Lagos, and the one on the right with Poké Stops in almost every corner is New York.
Poke Go++ is a Cydia Tweak that lets you cheat the game
If you’ve restrained yourself from upgrading to iOS 10 and still have a jailbroken iPhone on iOS 9, Poke Go ++ for Pokemon Go! is a Cydia tweak that gives you all the tools needed to cheat the game. You can as well sit in your house and tour the whole of Lagos without leaving your couch, looking for Pokémons. A virtual joystick lets you walk around the city while lying on your bed.
Here is the thing, Pokèmon Go automatically detects jailbreak and will fail to run on jailbroken devices. If your game crashes, simply install Poke Patch for Pokemon Go to make it work.
About teleporting, you should install LocationFaker from Cydia to set your location to a supported country. You can find all these three tweaks in HackYouriPhone repo.
