Pokemon GO permanent ban : new soft rules and reasons why

Am I banned from Pokemon GO? It's a question many gamers that've been playing in ways not quite "on the level" have been asking lately. Niantic has begun taking grander measures to destroy attempts to bypass their listed intentions with the game - especially those that include not actually playing the game on foot. Users that move around the Pokemon GO universe without moving their feet are subject to ban. Niantic is finding new and more innovative ways to find these people out before they move on to new techniques themselves. We've worked with several developers to find a variety of reasons why a person might be banned, how they'll have been detected, and what their punishment will end up being.

Pokemon GO’s Combat Power ranking revealed

Although battling doesn't have the same key role in Pokemon GO as it does in the game or the TV series (at least not yet), a Pokemon's Combat Power or CP is still an important metric in choosing which Pokemon to keep or ignore, especially when you're intent on duking it out in gyms. But if you've ever wondered how high your Pokemon can go, GamePress has a nifty list that ranks all 150 species according to their CP.

Pokemon Uranium removed to “respect” Nintendo’s wishes

Pokemon Uranium removed to “respect” Nintendo’s wishes

Pokemon is one of the most known, beloved, and perhaps even reviled gaming franchises, so it's not really surprising that it has no small amount of clones, unofficial spinoffs, and even pirated copies of the game.
