What is a GPS joystick? Namely, it is a technique that can help you change your physical location and let you go anywhere you want. This is helpful when you play Pokémon GO and want to catch many rare Pokémon but you're in a place with limited choices. 

How to get a joystick on Pokémon GO? There are two options for this purpose: using third-party location spoofers to change your location or directly using a modified version of Pokémon GO to do the same thing.

Are there any negative impacts of using this technique? The biggest negative impact of this technique is that there is a chance to be detected by Niantic. Once you're discovered, you will receive punishments, as below.

  • On the first strike, you'll get a warning message. Then, you'll be banned from catching any rare Pokemons for seven days.
  • On the second strike, your account will be blocked for a month.
  • On the third strike, your account will be terminated permanently.

Though we can't guarantee to escape all bans created by Niantic, there are plenty of things we can do to prevent that from happening. For how to do that, you can read our below instructions.

2 Ways for Pokémon GO Joystick

As we mentioned earlier, there are two options to use the Pokémon GO joystick. In this section, we will introduce them to you respectively. Before doing that, remember do not to continue using the Pokémon GO joystick for a long time because this will increase the chance of being found by Niantic. It's better to stop the use of this technique every one or two hours.

Way 1. Use Third-party Apps to Change Your Location

There are many location spoofers you can use to fake the location on Android and iOS devices. Especially for Android users, Google Play Store has offered many different choices, such as Mock GPS With Joystick, Mock Locations, and Fake GPS – ByteRev, etc. You can use any of them to get the job done.

While for iOS users, there are very few choices. If you're struggling to find that kind of tool, try EaseUS MobiAnyGo, a professional iOS location changer that makes faking GPS location easier and more flexible than ever. Here are some functions you can expect from this tool.

  • It offers three modes to change your location: Teleport Mode, Two-spot Mode, and Multi-spot Mode.
  • It allows you to customize your moving speed and times for your route.
  • It allows you to save your historical spots and then use them later.

To fake your location with EaseUS MobiAnyGo:

Step 1. Connect your iPhone/iPad to the computer and run EaseUS MobiAnyGo. Then, agree to the disclaimer and click "Start" to proceed. Note: Before you proceed, remember to stop all location-based apps running on the background.

Step 3. Once the loading process completes, choose the "Teleport Mode" button in the top-right corner of the screen. Next, you can look for any locations on the search bar or adjust the pin to anywhere you want to go. Click "Move" to alter your location on the iPhone. Afterward, go to any location-based app on your iPhone and you will see your iPhone location has been changed already.

Way 2. Download a Tweaked Version of Pokémon GO 

Using a tweaked version of Pokémon GO is another way to change your location. It is easy to download such tools on Android devices. You just need to input keywords like "Pokémon GO modified" or  "Pokémon GO tweaked" in the Google Play Store and then choose your desired one from the results. But for iOS users, things get more tricky since the Apple Store doesn't offer many options. Given that, we prepare 2 indirect ways to do the same thing: download such apps in Build Store or jailbreak their devices and then download such apps from Cydia. 

Install Build Store on iPhone

Build Store is a third-party app store that allows you to download apps from outside the App Store. But this is a paid service, which requires you to pay $9.99 per year for one device. If a subscription is not what you want, try to jailbreak your iOS device and then download apps from Cydia for free. 

Whichever way you eventually choose to use, here are some notices that should be kept in mind before using any tools.

  • Be sure to uninstall the official Pokémon GO before using the modified version of Pokemon.
  • Install an updated version of Pokémon GO from the App Store may overwrite the modified version.
