Pokemon Go Cheat #4 – Curve Gesture
Catching a pokemon is easier if you throw a curveball. If you can’t quite throw a curveball, this Pokemon Go cheat will be right up you alley.
Curveballs and different types of Pokeball tosses can net you some serious extra points. Yet, it can be really tough to do them repeatedly with the same stroke. However, if you use your phone’s Assistive Touch feature, this will be no problem for you. Here’s how you do it:
- In your iPhone, go to General & Accessibility.
- Under Interactions, choose Assistive Touch. From there, you’ll want to create a new gesture.
- When you create a new gesture, touch your screen and throw a curveball as you would in Pokemon Go. Save the gesture and name it.
- Go back into Pokemon Go, and find a Pokemon to catch. Tap the Assistive Touch circle that is glowing. Tap, custom and find your gesture.
- After aiming your circle, start your pokeball and let your gesture go.
Pokemon Go Cheat #5 – Pikachu
While you can find pikachus in 2km eggs, finding a wild Pikachu can still be a pain. However, much like Ash Ketchum, you can actually start your game off with everyone’s favorite electric rat instead. In order to begin your Pokemon Go quest with Pikachu, you’ll need to ignore Squirtle, Bulbasaur, and Charmander.

Pokemon Go Cheat #7 – IV Calculator
Intrepid individuals have created an “IV Calculator” for your Pokemon in Pokemon Go. IV stands for individual value. Basically, you put in the stats of a current Pokemon you have, and the calculator tells you its individual value. The IV Calculator gives you a percentage for your Pokemon — the higher the percentage given, the better it is.
It will also tell you the best and worst possible outcomes for your Pokemon as a fully evolved and powered up Pokemon. With the IV Calculator, you can decide whether you should hold on to the Pokemon you already have or hold out hope for a better version.
