Pokemon Cheat: Curve Ball with Assisted Touch


Phew! We have covered so far three ways on how to do a perfect curve ball to earn XP rewards as a special catch bonus and improve the catch-ability of the Pokemon in Pokemon Go. Today we will do the un-right thing (if there is such a word) and show to you another way to throw Curve Balls – the cheater way.

For Apple Devices:

If you are using your iPhone or iPad in playing Pokemon Go, you can hack your way to the perfect curveball. If you use Apple’s Accessibility features, you can “record” a Curve Ball and throw gesture to play back at any time — including, yes, while catching a Pokémon. (Hat tip to a Reddit commenter on The Silph Road subreddit for this trick and TheStoneAge user.) Here are the steps:


Visit the Settings app and tap General > Accessibility.

Under the Interaction header, tap AssistiveTouch.

Turn AssistiveTouch On. You’ll see a small glowing circle appear in the corner of your screen.

Tap Create New Gesture.

Inside the New Gesture box, perform the Curve Ball (either Arc or Super Spin gesture) with the same speed you would inside the game, then give it a name.

Return to the Pokémon Go app.

When you encounter a Pokémon, tap the AssistiveTouch glowing circle.

Tap the Custom star.

Choose the custom gesture.


Move the targeting circle to properly start on your Poké Ball. When you release, the gesture will execute.

Note: You may have to try recording a couple of different variations on the gesture to execute it perfectly.

For Android Devices:

Users swear by the apps EasyTouch, Frep – Finger Replayer, and Repitiouch for root users.

While others shake their heads in disapproval of this Pokemon cheat, others are more willing to try it for efficiency. How about you, what do you think of this Pokemon hack?
