Got Permanent Ban On Pokemon Go Account? Submit Appeal To Unban It, Here’s How

The murky world of Pokemon Go is one that can offer great fun and excitement, but it can also be a great source of frustration if you just can’t quite find the exact Pokemon you so desire. It’s the kind of frustration that could, perhaps, lead to you cheat in some way. That could be using an app to falsify your location or any other means of bending the rules, and if you go down that road, there’s always the chance that Niantic will notice, and when Niantic notices, users get banned.

Being banned from playing Pokemon Go may be a good thing in the long term, but in the short term, gamers want their Pokemon fix, so finding a way to get the ban overturned is something many have been looking into.


As it turns out, though, Niantic (and Nintendo for that matter) already offers a route back into Pokemon Go, the game, but you’ll need to follow some rules.

Our goal is to provide a fair, fun and legitimate game experience for everyone. We will continue to work with all of you to improve the quality of the gameplay, including ongoing optimization and fine tuning of our anti-cheat system. If you believe your account has been terminated in error incorrectly, you can appeal that termination through this form.  For privacy reasons, please do not post appeals on social media.

Submitting an appeal against a Pokemon Go ban does not necessarily mean that you will get back into the game, but it’s at least a first step in the process and one that needs to be taken if you really want to get back into catching and training your little lovelies, and you do, don’t you? Just don’t go cheating again, please. You’re better than that!

You can submit an appeal against your permanently banned Pokemon Go account here.


If it’s a soft-ban on your account that you’re looking to lift, we’ve covered how to unban that too. Follow the instructions for that here: How To Unban A Banned Pokemon Go Account.
