Pokemon Go Soft Ban Times and Solution

As we all know, usage of GPS spoofing tools (and possibly driving in a car) can earn you a timed soft ban from Pokémon Go, penalties include:

  • Inability to catch any pokémon, as they will break out and run guaranteed
  • Pokéstops become unusable
  • Gyms cannot be challenged (Battling or Training)

Before I did my research, all that was truly known was the bans last up to a few hours before expiring and normal play resumes. I did some tests to determine when a ban will be applied and it’s severity. Here are some results:

Cars:

  • Driving at 45 mph for 1 hour earned no ban
  • Driving at 65 mph for 1 hour earned no ban

I can’t speak for higher speeds, but a consistent speed of up to 65 for an hour was tested and no bans were earned. Even though I was not banned, be wary!

GPS Spoofing: This data was acquired using a dummy account

  • ~500 ft. No Ban
  • ~1000 ft. No Ban
  • ~2000 ft. No Ban
  • ~1 Mi. First inconsistent ban (Didn’t earn a ban everytime) Lasted between 5 and 10 minutes.
  • ~2 Mi. First consistent bans (Earned everytime) Lasted between 5 and 30 minutes.
  • ~5 Mi.+ Ban Earned This ban duration seems more inconsistent. Traveling 10 Mi. earned me a 20 min. ban and a jump of ~800 Mi. only earned me ~15 min. ban.



You can also be flagged as spoofing if you constantly jump short distances at extreme speed, which is why I tested car movement.

TL; DR distance does not seem to correlate to severity of punishment received. Larger distance does not always mean a larger ban but it does tend to be that way more often than not.

WARNING:

Disabling GPS when in one place and re-enabling it at a distant location without allowing ample time for plausible travel could register you as “spoofing”. You could earn a ban this way! Also using the same account with multiple devices that are large distances apart will also earn you a ban.

I am not completely finished, and will continue to post updates and refinements as I learn.

Drop your experiences, questions, hypotheses, and discoveries to help me compile data.
