Multiaccounting in any of Niantic's games is a TOS violation. Banned in 5... 4... 3...

I hope the grandpa is aware that unless you travel to other countries, you'll never be able to catch all the Pokemon no matter how many mobile phones you use.

I doubt they'll TOS him from seeing the videos, because he generates free publicity every time he goes viral.

Mostly it just reminds me of how Pokémon Go just isn't a very good game. Like, it's great for motivating homebodies to go outside, but you can also play it on 22 phones at once by randomly banging on just some of the phones as fast as possible.

Also shows their double standard and encourages other people to multi... well, by what I hear it is on near epidemic levels in Pogo anyway. Whereas Ingress community is rather self-policing, stomping on multiaccounters pretty hard and reporting them relentlessly. Can be a rough awakening to Pogoers who come to try "that other game."

I don't understand the point of having more than one account. You can't even trade in Pokemon Go.

Uh, yeah you can. For almost a year now. And more recently, you can battle against other people.
