If you want to access Pokémon GO gyms from a greater distance, here’s a little trick to double it.
Pokémon GO had to adapt to a number of major changes last year when the pandemic hit the game and the world. In order to maintain safety, players were encouraged to enjoy the title from home.
Gyms and poke parades were allowed to be accessed from further afield, and players were rewarded with various items and rewards. After a year, some changes have been reversed and that has created many problems with the community that Niantic has had to compensate.
Even with all the distance from the gyms, that is, the distance to which one can access one can be increased thanks to a relatively simple trick to perform. The only thing you should know, apart from the steps to follow, is that this trick only works on iOS devices
It should also be said that this could be patched with future Pokémon GO updates, so the scope in time that it may have is unknown. That said, we leave you with the steps you must follow.
- Make sure you have Pokémon Go closed
- You must disable location services by going to Settings – Privacy – Location services on your device.
- Open the game.
- You should receive a notification asking you to reactivate your location.
- Do it and now you should have increased the interaction distance with the gyms.
