Pokemon Go is the most successful augmented reality game. It was released in 2016 & since then the popularity of the game is steady. Pokemon Go made $1.4 billion for Niantic in 2019. Well, these numbers automatically define the success of the game.

However, the credit for success goes both to players & Niantic. The company kept introducing new & interesting features from time to time which was loved by players & it continued to grow. Last year, we saw the addition of GO Rocket League & this year we saw the addition of GO Battle League.

However, GO Battle League is currently disabled by Niantic due to an exploit. It was allowing cheaters to generate more energy & use charge moves extremely fast. By using this exploit, cheaters were winning every battle & started to rank top on the leaderboard.

Cut to now, many Pokemon Go trainers have been receiving strikes & 7 day bans on their accounts for breaking the game’s terms of use & policy. Well, the issue is that players are receiving strikes even without any wrongdoings.
