How to Change Your Location in Pokemon GO

Have you caught all of the Pokemon?

Depending on where you live in the world, there’s a strong chance that you haven’t. Did you know that there are Pokemon that are exclusive to certain countries and regions? Unless you’ve hopped on a plane and traveled there, your collection is going to have some empty spaces.

But what if you don’t have the cash to go on extravagant holidays around the world to capture Pokemon? What if you get there and you can’t track it down before your flight home?

Thankfully, there is an easier way to collect Pokemon without having to step foot on foreign soil. If you want to catch them all, then you’ll want to follow this simple hack to trick your phone into thinking you’re overseas collecting rare and exclusive Pokemon.

How to Get Pokemon GO

Pokemon GO was first released to the world in 2016 where it became an instant sensation. People around the globe rushed from location to location to try and catch Pokemon before they disappeared. By the end of the first year, the game had been downloaded over 500 million times worldwide.

But like many games, the fanbase started to dwindle after players filled out their collection and started catching the same characters over and over again. Eventually, the developers began releasing new generations of Pokemon for players to collect as well as additional regional exclusives.

If you happened to uninstall Pokemon GO, there’s no cause for alarm. Your collection might be a little dusty, but it still remains intact. You’ll just need to download the game again to start collecting the next generation of Pokemon.

How to Change Your Location in Pokemon GO

In order to trick Pokemon GO into thinking you’re roaming the streets of another country, you’re going to need three different applications in addition to a copy of the game. Combined, these three programs allow you to change your location on the map to anywhere in the world.

GPS Spoofing App

Getting a Pokemon GO spoofer for Android is relatively easy. There are several apps available, and activating them doesn’t take a lot of effort. Once you’ve chosen one and installed it, head to your Settings. Go to the About Device section and tap on the build number seven times. This will present you with a new tab titled Developer Options.

Select it and look for the “select mock location app,” and tick the box. That’s how to spoof Pokemon GO on any Android device. Sadly for Apple products, it’s a little trickier.

For starters, you’re going to need a jailbroken iPad or iPhone. Next, you’re going to want to download the Protect My Privacy app. Head to the Location section inside the program and select the Protect option. Now you can drop a pin on the map that you want to be your fake location.

Mock Locations Masking Module

Naturally, any good developers quickly caught on to hackers using GPS Spoofing and started banning players who caught regional Pokemon from the comfort of their homes. To avoid this outcome, you’re going to need to install a module named Mock Locations. It helps prevent apps from recognizing that you’re using apps to disguise where you are in the world.

Virtual Private Network (VPN)

The last app you’ll need to add to your Pokemon GO hacks is a VPN. The game can detect your device’s IP address and match it with your GPS location. If they’re different, the developers may impose a ban on you and take away Pokemon from your collection. However, turning on a VPN will hide this information and route all of your internet traffic through a server from the location of your choice.

How to Play Pokemon GO Without Leaving the House?

Now you’ve got all of your applications, and you know how to spoof Pokemon GO, it’s time to catch them all.

Before you open the game though, you’ll want to make sure that everything is activated. Start by opening up your VPN and selecting the destination you want to “visit.” Next, open the GPS Spoofing App and ensure that the Mock Locations Masking module is activated.

Once all of your network connections are aligned, you can open Pokemon GO and start hunting down creatures.
