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:

Choose What You Want Eevee To Evolve Into

Depending on the conditions, an Eevee can transform into any three evolutions:

  • Vaporeon
  • Jolteon
  • Rainer

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.

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.

Pokemon Go Lucky Eggs


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!

Find a Pokemon Go Raid Map easily by visiting:

Rare Pokemon Locations – Pokemon Go Maps

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:
