Niantic Details New Three-Strike Discipline Policy For Pokemon GO

Niantic has finally announced that it has a new three-strike policy for their hit mobile title, Pokemon GO. The team is looking to crack down on those who are abusing the system which will come as welcome news to those who have been playing the game fair and square. Here’s their procedure.

Strike 1: Warning

Disciplinary actions:
If this strike is issued, you will see a warning message within the Pokémon GO app informing you that we have detected cheating on your account.

In addition to this warning, your gameplay experience may be degraded in the following ways for the duration of the warning:

  • You may not be able to encounter rare Pokémon in the wild. These Pokémon may not appear on the map or on the Nearby Pokémon tracker.
  • You may be excluded from receiving new EX Raid Passes.

Duration: 
This strike will last for approximately 7 days. After this period, your gameplay experience will fully be restored.

Strike 2: Suspension

Disciplinary actions:
If your account is issued a second strike, you will temporarily lose access to your Pokémon GO account. When attempting to log into the game, you’ll be presented with a message stating that your account is suspended. You will not be able to bypass this message.

Duration: 
This strike will last for approximately 30 days. After that period, your account access will be restored.

Strike 3: Termination

Disciplinary actions:
If you receive the first and second strikes and continue to cheat, your account will be permanently banned.

Duration: 
Permanent

Appealing your punishment

If you believe your account has been terminated in error, you may appeal the termination. We will respond to your appeal after a complete investigation of your account. Please note that due to the high level of accuracy in our detection systems, very few terminations are ever overturned.

    1. You realize you can’t get more than 50 coins a day, right? You literally can’t get to 100k coins through gyms alone. That would take 2,000 days, or almost 7 years.

      1. Are you trolling or just stupid ?

        50 coins x 20 gyms per day x 300 days ( one year +- ) = 300.000 coins

        Omg, time to get back playing your Spyro games. kid

    1. Sure, but you will loose all Pokemon.

      You can compare it like Fortnite, if you got banned you need a new account and loose all progress.
      You ever played Fortnite ?

    If this system is overlooked by Nintendo guys & not Niantic guys, if you truly are innocent, get ready to still be fucked because my experience with Miiverse says this system will be a nightmare with Nintendo in charge.
