Pokémon Go is a fun game made by the gaming company Niantic in 2016. It is different from other Pokémon games in two ways. It can be played on the phone without any need of an emulator and is directly linked to the device’s GPS. The character on your phone moves with correspondence to your movements in real life and the in-game GPS tracking system changes environment with respect to change of location. Each area you visit in real life will have specific spawning points for different randomized Pokémon seen up to Generation 3 – The Hoenn Region (as per 2018 update). However, since there are so many different spawning points and spawning periods, it is quite hard to catch new and strong Pokémon. There are many spawning events that take place in far away countries which may have your favorite Pokémon, but it’s difficult and expensive to travel to those places just for a game. Thankfully, there new and simple ways to catch all the Pokémon you want without leaving the comforts of your home. Just grab your phone, download a few free and safe apps, and you should be good to go on Pokémon adventure! So without any further delay, here’s some easy ways in which you can catch almost any Pokémon in Pokémon Go without moving a muscle.

1. Use the location spoofing app
Go to Play Store and search for Fake GPS GO Location Spoofer by Incorporate Apps and download it for free. This app will change the apparent location of your phone and alter its GPS signal.
2. Enable mock location
After reading the terms and conditions of the app, it will give you the option of enabling mock location. Click it and go to Select Application and click Fake GPS Free. Go back to the app and click “accept”. The app should be running by now like any other GPS would. It will display your current location.
3. Select the location
Choose the location to you want to catch Pokémon in. For example, if you want to go to San Francisco. Open the app and go to settings. Enable No Root Mode; keep in mind that this mode will only work for Android version 6.0 onwards. Go ahead and enable high accuracy. Once you’ve done this, return to the app and click on update interval and reduce it to around 500 milliseconds.
4. Enter the location
Enter the exact location you want in the city you want to “visit” into the search bar of the Fake GPS app. Once you’ve entered the location, click the play button on the lower right hand side of your screen. You have now enabled a fake location.
5. Verify and troubleshoot
Before proceeding on with the game, first check Google maps to check if it registers your spoofed location. If it doesn’t, go back to the app, press the stop button and start it again. Leave this app running in the background and then open Pokémon Go. If it says that it cannot receive your GPS signal, go back to the app and press stop button and restart it. Congratulations, you are finally in a totally different country with a new spawn of Pokémon! Remember to switch locations after at least 2 hours, otherwise the Pokémon Go servers may detect your fake GPS signal and ban your account.
6. Joystick Mode
To catch Pokémon without moving around too much you have to buy an app called Fake GPS Joystick and Routes Go and enable joystick mode in your Fake GPS App. We do not recommend using joystick mode as game servers can detect it and may suspend or ban your account.
