Is That Cheating? Someone Used Drone to Play Pokemon Go
hyperion995 posted on Pokemon Go sub-reddit with it titled "Is this considered cheating?" He didn't write any text in the post but instead just attached a few images, showing his drone device and how it works with his computer.
According to Daily Dot's report, he basically hooked up his phone to the drone, fixed it with tape. With the help of an app called AirDroid, he is able to interact with a mirrored version of his phone via the computer.
But hyperion995 actually didnt recommend others to follow him in the comment, "If you do attempt this, make sure to be in an open area where a falling phone can't hurt or break anything as well as maintain line of sight with your drone because of the compass issues."
While using drone to play Pokemon Go is legal according to Niantic, players do have different opinions. Someone said it is "against the spirit of the game" and another one responsed "It's the fattest fat guy solution I've ever seen." But well, at least using drone to play is better than driving while catching Pokemons, right? It's really dangerous and might cause very bad problems, which we would never recommend Pokemon Go players do. Be safe while playing!
