Yes I play Pokemon Go and yes I'm an adult, I know, how sad. Now it's even worse because I'm writing a blog post about it, and the post is about how to cheat at it.

OK so now I've got that out of the way, let's get down to it.

Pokemon Go all revolves around your location. It wants you to travel around to be able to get to PokeStops and Gyms and collect different Pokemon characters.

If only you could change your location whilst sitting in the comfort of your home, or let's face it, workplace, toilet, car, on the bus, train. I've played from all of those places.

Well it turns out you can. You just need to trick you phone into thinking it is somewhere that it isn't. If only you could get an app that lets you change your location.

I've done some searching and here is what you need:

  • A jailbroken iPhone
  • An app to fake your GPS location

I won't be jailbreaking my phone, but it turns out many of you have been doing and this article gives you instructions on the steps to follow to get this cheat working.
