How to tap to catch Pokemon in Pokémon GO using Poke Go++

First, it was the tap to walk in Pokemon Go. Now, with another new tweak, players can just tap on a specific Pokemon that comes across their way to catch it.

When I first got a chance to play Pokemon Go, I didn’t like it that much. Especially the part where I have to capture the Pokemon. I mean, I’ve always been a fan of the classic Pokemon games rather than the new one that they put on the App Store.

If you are like me, and you don’t like how the catching method works in Pokemon Go, this tweak is for you. I saw HackYouriPhone tweeted out a new video via their Twitter page. The clip shows a simple tap on a Pokemon to catch it.

Nothing complicated.

Warning: If your device is not jailbroken, use this new version.

How to Install Poke Go++ and Start Catching Faster

Step 1: Go to Cydia

Step 2: Reload your sources and wait until it’s complete

Step 3: Add the following source:

Step 3: There are multiple Cydia tweaks for Pokemon Go on there, but what we’re looking for is Poke Go++

Step 4: Tap on Install > Confirm > and Respring

The feature doesn’t stop there. This tweak also provides attractive functionalities like adding a joystick to your Pokemon Go, patrol mode, fake location, and much more.


One thing that I’m confused about is the name of this tweak. Is it the same package as the one currently being hosted on UnlimApp beta repo? Because the developers from there recently teamed up with the dev of PokemonGoAnywhere to further enhance their “Poke ++” tweak as well.

For now, if you want an easier and faster way of catching Pokemon, go with this jailbreak tweak. Do keep in mind that using tweaks like this can get you banned from the game. Please use it at your own risk.

Update #1: I just noticed the full name of this package is Poke Go++.
