How to Remove Your Soft Ban in Pokemon Go

How to Remove Your Soft Ban in Pokemon Go

Unbanster Pokemon Go 446 Comments

Whether you’ve got yourself a soft ban in Pokemon Go for GPS Spoofing, traveling too fast (apparently playing while in a car on a highway, obviously as a passenger, can get you soft banned as well) or sharing accounts, iBananaa from OwnedCore found a solution to fix it!

If you’re experiencing the Catch Flee soft ban instead of the regular one, make sure to check this article!

What is a Pokemon Go soft ban and how to check if you have one

If you suspect you’ve been soft banned, there is a very simple way to check. Basically, the way the soft ban works is that ANY pokemon you’re trying to catch will escape your ball (regardless of the ball type or berries used) and will instantly flee as well, thus being unable to catch any pokemon while soft banned.

Another soft ban symptom is that you can’t loot anything from pokestops, even though you’re actually spinning the circle; you won’t get any rewards, as well as being unable to win any gym fights.

What can get you soft banned

There isn’t quite an actual official list on the offenses that can get you soft banned, however, many people have been the subject of such timeouts due to the following reasons:

  • GPS Spoofing;
  • Logging in on other devices from other zones/countries faster than the normal travel time;
  • Sharing accounts on multiple devices;
  • Playing while on the highway (or above 50 kmph).

The timeout penalties applied while soft banned don’t seem to be much relevant for the particular violation, however, it’s safe to say that jumping continents by GPS spoofing is the most serious and longest penalty applied (up to 12 hours sometimes).

For more information about soft bans, as well as theories and research, there’s an interested reddit thread about it.

How to remove your soft ban

First of all, you want to make sure that you single out the reason for which you got banned, for instance GPS spoofing. If you were in New York and accidentally (or not) jumped to Germany, you should open Nox (or other app/phone), set your location to the initial one (in this case, New York) BEFORE opening Pokemon Go, and then open the game, thus being back where you started.

Secondly, walk to a pokestop, spin it and close it. You won’t be getting any rewards from it, however, doing so up to 40 times (or until you finally receive the rewards) will remove your soft ban.

Here’s a video demonstration:

Conclusion

Even though there is no official word on whether or not soft banned Pokemon Go accounts will be “flagged” for future reviews, it’s still pretty risky doing it on purpose, as we don’t know what Niantic has in store for us, and with the alleged trading features coming in future updates, they might start to take this kind of behavior much more seriously.

We never encourage cheating in any game, but if for some reason, be it health or anything else, you can’t leave your home to enjoy the game, we highly suggest you close the game for a few hours and allow it a humanly-possible time to travel between the locations you want to get to via Nox or other devices.

Hope you guys have enjoyed this post and found it helpful, and if you have any comments or suggestions, please don’t hesitate to let us know in the comment section! Have fun and good luck catching ’em all!

          Glad to hear that man, congrats! About the soft ban duration, it can be anything from a few minutes to several hours, and they don’t seem to be consistent with the distance of the GPS jump.

            i think niantic stopped this by removing all pokestops and pokemon from your device lol, when i tried there were no pokestops or pokemon anywhere

            Are you sure you have the Location ON on your device? Try disabling then enabling it, then run the game again.

        So i just got banned too and im really nervous, if i understood the article correctly, i have to wait for quite some time for the ban to be removed. But after that will i be able to play on my phone again and everything will be good or do i have to do more than just wait to totally remove the soft ban?

            If I used the GPS hack but got soft banned and I stopped using it for now on will it keep doing it in the future even tho I don’t hack it and will it affect my account or banned it permanently even if stopped right away?

            It might actually be just bad RNG / luck since everything else doesn’t point towards a soft ban or IP blacklist.

        You can, but only if both your phone and Nox have the same location (coordinates), however, not used at the same time. Otherwise, allow it a normal travel time between locations before swapping devices.

    I was so skeptical about this, I thought this was just another BS thing like the black ops ray gun trick :’) but nope, it actually worked (I had been banned for 2.5 hours prior! I’m still in shock that it worked really! I can imagine hoe hard it would be to convince people this is areal thing haha! Thanks man!

      Heya and thank you!

      It isn’t known yet whether or not any soft ban will flag the account for further investigation, however it’s doubtful at this point. Best thing to do is avoid getting soft banned if possible and allow a normal travel time (such as how much it’d take by plane/train/etc.) between swapping destinations if possible.

      It’s rumored that during Beta, the players found GPS spoofing were permanently banned, but with so many players currently on Live, I doubt that’ll be the case anytime soon, but better safe than sorry, right? ๐Ÿ™‚

      What device/app are you trying to play on, such as Phone (Android/iOS/etc) or Nox/BlueStacks emulators on computer?

      I am having this very same problem! downloaded some stupid gps map thing, (didnt work) uninstalled it and garbaged it,,not my gps just keeps saying “location not found” ..ive reset my location, wipped out the gps history, reset phone and still same thing? does this mean im banned?

      1. michael

        most fake gps/map apps requires turning on mock location (in developer option for android). what you need to do is turn off mock location and this should solve your problem.

  4. ragilz

    This work man.

    Thanks..

    Really helpful.

    All you got to do is back to originally location before banned and then open poke stop – spin – close it , and do it exactly 40 times.

    And you will got the reward from pokestop on 41 times spinned.

    Thanks once again.

    I’m confused, I think I’m soft banned for logging out of my account on the legit game (in my home town) and the logging in on the hacked version which spawned me somewhere in America. I’m pretty sure I got soft banned for this, do I need to set my location on the hacked version of the game to my home town and then go to a pokestop and spin the coin 40 times?

    Yep, the spinning pokestop method definitely works. Not that I want to encourage people GPS spoofing or anything, but if you happen to get banned as a result of legitimate grievance (eg: interstate flight, sharing accounts on several devices), this blog certainly helps to get you out of a soft ban.

      Basically, go back to your initial location (the one before jumping coordinates and getting soft banned), walk to a PokeStop and spin it 40 times or until you get the rewards.

      1. Peter

        Using this on my bot, working perfectly. Detects a soft ban then tries to spin a pokestop, if it fails it repeats it out of a maximum of 40 times, when it finally spins it continues botting etc. Works amazingly.

      It doesn’t have to be the place where you got soft banned, but the place before you teleported (or at least roughly in that area). If you can’t remember that city either, you can try it anyway, however I’m not sure if it’ll work. :S

      Are you sure that your Location is ON or that there’s no issue with your phone’s GPS? I doubt they’d ban a device and not the actual account to be honest.

    Just one thing, I didn’t do anything apart from selecting a pokestop and rotating it without counting until it gave me pokeballs and other items. I think I must have rotated for like 25..30 times. God bless you bro.

I tried doing the pokestop thing for a while and at first it didn’t seem to work. I haven’t counted the amount of spins but it sure took a couple minutes before I got my rewards.

      There is no faster way without 3rd party software which is against the terms of use, which we don’t recommend. Not sure about the number of PokeStops, but I believe it has to be spinned on just one if possible. You can try though.

      We really don’t encourage nor provide guides or support on how to fake the GPS location, but I’m sure you can find that easily on google or youtube. Are you sure your device’s Location setting is ON though? Just go to the nearest PokeStop once you can see them and spin it 40 times. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Well, as I’ve said in the post, we don’t encourage that, but if that’s the only option for you to play the game, just allow it a normal travel time (such as how much it would take by plane) before logging in from the new location.

        location is fine, i can see the streets and everything but i just don’t see pokestops, gyms and any pokemons. and one more thing, sometimes, when i play pokemons dissapear, i can see in the gyms that there are pokemons, but there are no images of pokemon, when i battle something like this also occours, and when i try to catch empty space game froze with open pokeball. what can you suggest to me with these problems ?

        1. Fran Martin

          Same as me. I got banned yesterday in the morning, I was expecting when I returned home from work it should be solve, but I can log in and only the streets appear, no pokestops no gyms, no pokemons. I create a new account to verify if it was a server issue, on the new account it shows me the pokestops and gyms but it did not show any pokemon. How can I solve the issue when nothing appears?

            Not sure what to say to be honest. Try logging out from all the devices and just log on the one you were before these symptoms showed up (or before getting soft banned).

    After spoofing nothing shows up around me. No Pokemon, pokestops or gyms, but on my other account I just made everything shows up. Is this a new type of ban and can it be removed?

    I think this is a troll but all these comments have led me to think that this works if i accidently get a ban.. I thought you are trying to make us removed from ban by wasting time for an hour so it automatically removes the ban duration.. BTW im waiting for 5 hours ( fllight time) to move from LA to NY(central park) ๐Ÿ˜€

    Quick question about bans. Since people here are more familiar than I am about bans. Say you get a 6 hr ban. Does your character have to be in the game for 6 hours, or can you just call it a night and get up in the morning and start playing? Other than spinning the pokestop ?

    1. Post

      Unbanster

      Nope, you don’t have to be in the game at all, however you don’t know how long the soft ban is going to last when it happens, but it’s safe to say that it’ll run out over night. It’s like the Lure Modules / Incense, they run out even if you’re in the game or not. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Old Navy Guy

        I got a Ban on my wife\’s account. She is in the Army and stationed in PA. I logged in to her account in VA and her account must have been banned. I did not see this trick until after I had her log back in. She will probably wait out the ban over night. Thank for the info..

  38. Kostas

    I deleted the spoofing, restored my iphone, shall i try the “pokestop thing”
    Or download the spoof again and go to my original place? Because i have allready opened the game in my actual place…

      If you’ve opened the game in your actual place, you shouldn’t spoof before allowing it a normal travel time (such as overnight). You can try removing your soft ban at the nearest PokeStop within your current location though.

    Hey.
    I just got soft-banned for using GPS spoofing.
    I’ve just changed my location by a kilometer or so, from A to B.
    I’ve gotten Pokestops there but couldn’t get anything from them.
    Got Pokemons which ran away.
    So, closed it.

    And when I reopened it *At location B*, I find no Pokestops or Pokemons around.
    What do I do?
    Am I permanently banned or something?

      Try going back to the location where you had the PokeStops but couldn’t get the rewards and just do the steps from the post above.

  43. Fizt

    So I have to set my location to the spot I was spoofing at, then set myself back to my hometown and spin the nearest Pokestop a number of times. Do I absolutely need to find a way to set my location to my spoof spot? Or can I just go to the nearest Pokestop and spin it a number of times?

      The location of spinning should be the location on where you’re planning to stay after removing your soft ban.

  44. heredere

    Can you help me? The problem is, that when i turn on the game, on my mobile phone, it’s like cant see the location, but it’s absoltely fine on noxx, can catch pokemons, collect pokestops and etc.
    However, its absolutely fine on phone, with my another account. Maybe it’s a new version of softban ?

      Nope, it’s the same version of soft ban. Unban yourself on Nox, allow it a normal travel time if you want to play in your city, and then just use your phone from that point on.

    It didn’t work at all, at least after the new update. Neither do I know the reason behind it. According to me, my Dad had been playing with my account in a different country than my hometown. Could this be the reason ? Found any alternate method ?

      Most likely that’s why you got soft banned, but in order to get it removed, only one of you can play at a time, and allowing a normal travel time before logging in from different locations.

      You weren’t perma banned. Maybe it’s an account issue or just server side updates. Try on a different device with the account (in the same GPS location if possible), or did you use your account on your sister’s phone and it worked?

    Hi there,

    I’m using the Pokemon go hacked app, I’m from Australia and it sent me straight to San Fran, but I’m worried that I’m on soft ban atm. Do you know how long I should wait until I try your soft ban trick.

    Do you think they will ban my account or IP address ? I really don’t want to lose my good pokemons and my Pikachu .

    First time ever getting soft banned.

    Thanks so much.

      Chances to get banned for that are extremely low, let alone IP banned. You can try the soft ban removal trick whenever you want, but decide in which zone you want to stay.

      Heya! You won’t get permanently banned, at least not right now and not for this. You don’t have to wait, you can use the same PokeStop spin x40. In the future, it’s best to do your best to avoid soft bans though by allowing a normal travel time to go by before swapping countries if possible.

      I mean the amount of hours it would normally take to get from A to B, or at least close to it. For example, if you want to jump from New York to Alaska, it’d take about 70 hours.

      The patch has implemented new mechanics against playing in a driving car (or at least above a certain speed), so I don’t recommend doing that. As for the soft ban removal, it still works as far as I know, however your IP might be blacklisted. Try logging in from a different device and connection if possible.

      It might be an IP blacklist. Try the account on a different device/connection to confirm. Your phone’s IP depends on the mobile/wifi data, so if you’re behind a router with dynamic IP, just restart it (the router), or just contact your phone carrier for the mobile data.

      You should ask the bot developer about that since we can’t provide that kind of support. I’m guessing either the walking speed or the delay between actions isn’t set correctly therefore it keeps getting you soft banned, or maybe other config issue, but then again, you should ask the bot community/dev about it.

      1. PokeHelper

        My walking Speed was 50 but it worked all the time, and today i getting softbanned over and over again. I think i don’t use the bot in the next days, because niantec made new Perma Ban and i don’t want to lose my Level 35 pokemon Account ๐Ÿ˜€ . But thanks for your help

    Hey guys. Here is another issue… what if I use a GPS spoofing app, but not for jumping to different places, rather walking around using a joystick. Will that cause a soft ban??
    And the thing you said about the future… if Niantic gonna do some more Hard ban on the account using tricks… how creditable is that?

      If it’s an autodetection method of the API, then it doesn’t matter much what exactly you do on the GPS spoofing app, but yes, not jumping locations will certainly decrease the ban chances.
