How to cheat at Pokemon Go – if you have searched for that and landed here – don’t worry you are SO not alone. Judge all you want, but this is what people are searching for and who am I to not provide answers? I’ll use this post as an on-going resource and update as I find out about more Pokemon Go cheats.
Pokemon Go Cheats
Alright, Pokemon cheaters – I mean trainers – we all know the first step is admitting you have a problem. Let’s just admit and move on to the Pokemon GO cheats:
Depending on the conditions, an Eevee can transform into any three evolutions:
Here is how you can pick what your Eevee evolves into. If you opt for your Eevee to evolve into a fire-type Pokémon, name your Eevee to “Pyro,” and it will evolve into a Flareon.
For water-types – nickname the Eevee “Rainer” to get a Vaporeon.
For electric-type – name your Eevee “Sparky” to get a Jolteon.
TRAINER TIP: The most powerful of the three is the Vaporeon.
Don’t worry – if you don’t like your pokemons to be named Pyro, Rainer and Sparky – you can rename theme. The game has the option to change names right after your Pokémon has evolved.
More Eevee Evolution Tips
Ready for some more Pokemon Go cheats? Check out this: Did you know you can turn an Eevee into an Espeon — Espeon, Eevee’s psychic evolution, can be gained by Evolving an Eevee with a high friendship level during the day – SCORE!
Umbreon, the dark-type version of Eevee, also needs high friendship levels, but it has to be evolved during the night – so we’re talking to you, night owls.
How to Catch Pikachu
Okay – this is Pikachu cheat helps if you are just starting. Here is what you do. REBEL! When Professor Willow tells you to pick a Pokemon, don’t. He will show you three and you choose ZERO – keep walking until Charmander, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur disappear from the map.
Those three Pokemon will pop-up again on your map – you have to ignore them four times. But persistence pays off. The fifth time they respawn on your map – they’ll have a Pikachu with them! Instead of Charmander, Squirtle, or Bulbasaur – choose PIKACHU! You are welcome.
Level Up with Lucky Eggs
Lucky Eggs give you double XP points (experience points) for 30 minutes. Lucky Eggs don’t happen until Level 9 and then you will only get 1 (or if you are shelling out the cash, that’s another story. We’re pretending you are broke folk.) You will get a few more on levels 10, 15 and 20. That said, you want to use these eggs at optimal times.
When to use your Lucky Eggs?
Here is the XP points you typically get:
Catch a Pokémon: 100 XP (New Pokémon you haven’t captured before give you an added 500 XP bonus.)
Evolve a Pokémon: 500(!) XP
Hatching a Pokémon: 200 XP
Heading to a Pokéstop: 50 XP
So remember, you get DOUBLE for 30 minutes when using a Lucky Egg. So instead of 200 XP for hatching a Pokemon, you get 400. It’s all about being prepped for Lucky Egg use. When using the Lucky Egg – use before your Pokemon hatch – 400 XP PER hatch!
Lucky Eggs Evolutions
Store up a bunch of Pokemon to evolve. Remember, Lucky Eggs evolutions = 1000 XP
Use an incense or lure module at the SAME time as your Lucky Eggs. All 3 last 30 minutes, use wisely. The Lure Module can be attached to any Pokéstop and it will bring Pokemon to that location for half an hour. But do note, when using the lure module you need to stay in that location for the Pokémon party to arrive. Incense, on the other hand act as your own personal lure module (again, remember – it only lasts for half an hour.) Instead of staying in one place for 30 minutes, you can actively walk around and the Pokémon will flock to you and only you. Find an area near several Pokestops and you are GOLD.
Find Pokemon Go Raid Maps
Have you ever seen a group of adults in a park in the parking lot all on their phone?Chances are they are doing a Pokemon Go raid. Imagine having access to Pokemon Go Raid Maps! You can!
Look for rare Pokemon locations? Download the Poke Radar app and discover the location of rare Pokemon. Talk about crowd sourcing at it’s best.
Trainers work together by dropping a pin on a Pokemon Go man – whenever they find a rare Pokemon. The more pins there are in one place on a Pokemon Go map – the better your chance in finding your own rare catch.
Hatch a 10k Egg Without Walking
Okay lazy butt, here are more Pokemon Go cheats – this will teach you how you hatch a 10k egg without walking.
If you own a record player, place your phone on top of the record player – let it spin right round baby, right round. And all that spinning will have your Poke-eggs hatching!
Or you could strap it to your dog (my pug is lazy, soo…) or strap it to your toddler, LORD knows they walk more than 10k a day.
Pokéball Shooting Tips
Did you know that when you are flinging Pokéballs, Pokémon are easier to catch when the green circle is at its largest?
The smaller the circle is, the harder it is to hit your target, and therefore the more XP points you’re rewarded to help you progress to the next level. If you fling a great shot – you’ll know because words like ‘nice’, ‘great’ and ‘excellent’ will pop up on the screen!

Walk Without Walking – Tap to Walk
This Poké cheat requires you to jailbreak your phone. If you are that serious about being the #1 Pokémon Trainer than jailbreaking your phone to WIN and to play without walking shouldn’t be that big of deal. Again, no judgement – we are all here to learn about the cheats, right? Here’s a video to give you all the deets on cheating on Pokémon Go with a jailbroken phone:

Looking for a Pokemon baby name? I just read over on Today that Pokemon baby names are all the rage. That’s right folks, people are naming their precious little babies after the newest not new trend.
HOW DARE THEY? Actually, totally no judging here, because 13 years ago, I totally named my daughter after a trend, a monster in fact. Remember Zoe from Sesame Street? Though I spell my daughter’s name different, that orange Sesame Street monster was the inspiration for our first child’s name. I always loved Sesame Street and heard the name Zoe and knew it was meant to be. So if you want to name your kids after a Pokemon – just go for it.

Pokémon Go for Parents – It’s all over the internet, the memes won’t stop and your kids (or in my case, husband as well) won’t shut up about it. I mean – we were on vacation and the whole family wanted to go catch Pokémons and we did. Everywhere from Portland, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon – all the way home to Dallas – we were catching these creatures.
What in the world?! If you are a parent and want to know what is this craze about – let’s chat.
Parent’s Guide to Pokemon Go

What is Pokemon Go?
Should kids play Pokemon Go?
Is there a security and privacy risk?
How can I get my kids moving with this game?

Click the link below or image above. We want this to be a complete resource guide for parents. If you have questions, I left out or if I left out something you think parents need to know about – please leave a comment! We want this parent resource to be as helpful as can be for you, your family and your Pokemon catching adventures!
What is Pokemon Go?
Pokemon Go is an game app released by Nintendo in July 2016. It took the world by storm and is still a top-rated game in the app store. The Pokemon Go app made a huge impact partially because the app makes you go places and move to accomplish things.
While yes, you can play the game at home – there are limitations. You excel in the game by battling at various locations.
Pokemon Go Trailer
Here is the Pokemon Go trailer. This should give you a taste as to what the game is about.
Should Kids Play Pokemon Go?
You need to decide if playing the Pokemon Go app is something that is right for your kid. As far as content, it’s PG. The biggest safety concern that I can forsee would be adults meeting in public Pokemon spaces.
It really is amazing how many adults play this game. I would recommend parents use this game as a family opportunity for game play. Go visit poke gyms and battles together. Go find some Pokemon!
As mentioned, in general Pokemon Go is a safe game for kids to play. You create a trainer who is your persona. But like mentioned above, kids should use with caution when attending public Pokemon events.
Parents, it’s our jobs to keep our kids safe!
How Can This Game Get My Kids Moving?
Here is the beautiful thing about the Pokemon Go game. In order to do certain things, you have to walk. The game uses your phone’s sensors to make sure you are moving.
This is great for parents who want their kids to do more than sit on a couch, staring into space.
How Can I Use Pokemon Go for a Family Activity?
When this game first game out and all of our kids were into it, my husband created his own account. On numerous occasions, he would find poke gyms and battles in various locations around where we live (or were on vacation) and took the kids to play. This was a fun and engaging way for the kids to connect to their dad thru the Pokemon Go app.
We also have several friends who have done the same thing in using this app as a family activity.
In conclusion, there is a lot to this app and we want to make sure to provide with all the information we can that would be helpful for a parent.
