    If you're caught using a bot program o GPS-spoofing service for Pokemon Go, you might find your account permanent banned. The game's website now mentions that developer Niantic is permanently banning players who violate the game's Terms of Service.
    "This includes, but is not limited to: falsifying your location, using emulators, modified or unofficial software and/or accessing Pokemon Go clients or backends in an unauthorized manner including through the use of third-party software," reads the line in question.
    Niantic said it's taking these steps because its ambition is to create a "fair, fun, and legitimate game experience" for all players. You can expect Niantic to continue its efforts here.
    "We will continue to work with all of you to improve the quality of the gameplay, including ongoing optimization and fine tuning of our anti-cheat system," it said. "If you believe your account has been terminated in error incorrectly, you can appeal that termination through this form. For privacy reasons, please do not post appeals on social media."
    Polygon reports that popular Pokemon Go bots, including NecroBot, are shutting down. The creator of that bot told Polygon that he took down the program's files in light of the bans. NecroBot undermines the spirit of Pokemon Go by allowing players to perform the game's actions without leaving their homes. Niantic has said its goal for the game is to get people out into the real world.
    "Due to legal action being started against other bot creators/devs (we did not receive a letter yet) the Project development will be stopped. All Source Files / Downloads will be removed," reads a statement on the NecroBot GitHub page.
    HaxtonBot and PokeMobBot are also apparently moving to shut down. According to Polygon, the previous penalty for cheating in Pokemon Go was a "soft ban," which allowed users to keep playing, though they couldn't catch creatures or take part in gym battles.
    In other Pokemon Go news, authorities in Canada released helicopter footage of an erratic driver who was reportedly playing the game while behind the wheel.
