While waiting for others to show up at a Sprint legendary raid last night, we noticed there were 13 trainers in the lobby. When someone went in to take a look, we didn’t recognize any of the names and realized they were spoofers. There were only a few seconds left so we didn’t have time to take screenshots of the spoofers. While discussing this with another trainer later in the evening, he said at the last EX raid we were at, while waiting for me, 17 spoofers jumped into the EX raid. I was wondering why only six local trainers received EX raid passes. The last two EX raids, only seven local trainers received passes for each. By targeting these sponsored gyms, the spoofers are taking away many EX raid passes for legitimate local trainers.
My question is, if we do get screenshots, how do we report these spoofers. And will Niantic even do anything about them?
I was also told there are Twitter accounts that report EX raid locations at sponsored gyms and I managed to find one in about a minute. I know Niantic can’t shut these Twitter accounts down but I wish they could!
