Private Tunnel VPN gives Pokémon Go Players a Real Life Advantage

August 8, 2016    |    Company News    |    Private Tunnel

Pokémon Go has officially released, and it is the new rage of the mobile gaming world. This new augmented reality game constantly scans your location for nearby Pokémon who have landed on Earth, and you get to capture and train them! There are hundreds of different Pokémon to catch, plus Pokémon exclusive to specific regions in the world. You’ll need to get out into the real world to find Pokémon, and as you walk around, your smartphone will vibrate when there’s a Pokémon nearby. Take careful aim and throw a Poké Ball…just make sure to stay alert of your surroundings, or it might get away!

Pokémon Go is played globally, but unfortunately, not everyone can access Pokémon equally. People living in major cities have a lot more access to Pokémon and Pokéstops, whereas people living in more rural areas don’t have nearly as much opportunity. There are also a lot of Pokémon that trainers can’t catch unless they are able to jet-set all around the globe. But by using a simple Pokémon Go VPN trick, trainers everywhere can easily catch them all.

What is the Pokémon Go VPN Trick?

Pokémon Go players have quickly realized that by using Private Tunnel VPN features to access various geographic regions of the world, they can increase their opportunity to find more Pokémon.

Pokémon Go trainers who want to complete their digital Pokédex (the digital encyclopedia that categorizes all the captured Pokémon) know that they will have to travel the world to catch all of the Pokémon. There are numerous Pokémon that can only be captured in specific countries and continents — however, it isn’t always possible for trainers to travel all around the globe. So unless a trainer has a ton of time and money on their hands (or has really good friends in other countries willing to trade Pokémon with them), they need to figure out another way to capture those regional Pokémon.

Using a VPN allows trainers to change the location of their IP address to reflect an entirely different country — essentially tricking the game into thinking they are located somewhere else — which is a great way to increase the odds of finding Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Pikachu, and many other Pokémon!

How to Unblock Pokémon Go Firewall

But that isn’t the only benefit. If the game is not presently available in your area, or if your workplace WiFi doesn’t allow the game, that’s no problem! Players can just access the game through one of Private Tunnel’s regional servers. That means gamers in countries where Pokémon is not currently available can log into Private Tunnel USA-based servers to download and play. And players connected to WiFi that blocks the game can get around those restrictions, too! Gamers are also logging into regions in the world where new game downloads first release, to get the jump on their friends.

A lot of trainers are on the hunt for the best VPN for a Pokémon Go Advantage — and lots of people are using our product Private Tunnel to catch more Pokémon, without actually having to leave their country.

Always Use the Pokémon Go VPN Trick on Public Wi-Fi

Although using a VPN presents outstanding benefits to gamers, there are other essential features that shouldn't be overlooked. When people play Pokémon Go, they often connect to public WiFi to preserve data. This poses a security risk, because public WiFi is unsecured and opens people up to getting hacked by cybercriminals. If you are using unsecured WiFi to play Pokémon Go, private server access is a must. Private Tunnel VPN provides you with secure internet connections by creating an encrypted tunnel that shields your activity and location from hackers. It allows you to create a secure WiFi connection while on Public WiFi — so you aren’t at risk while catching and training your Pokémon.

By using the Private Tunnel VPN while playing Pokémon Go, you will gain access to:

  • Secure Internet Access: A VPN encrypts data transfer to prevent spoofing and malicious attacks.
  • Private Internet Access: VPNs provide Private Internet Access when surfing the web.
  • Protected Internet Access: A VPN protects against denial of service attacks.
  • More Connections: VPNs help circumvent firewalls to unblock access from regions across the globe.

As Ash Ketchum would say: "Always play to win!" Whenever and wherever you play Pokémon Go, private server access will help you catch all the Pokémon possible — while keeping you safe and secure from hackers.
