After many crazy reports of accidents happening while playing Pokemon Go, in reality, it’s now time to be able to do so in a virtual world. By that we refer to the GTA V Online game.
GTA online has cashed in millions of dollars in revenue and Pokemon Go is seemingly going to be just as successful (or perhaps even more successful)l so it makes perfect sense to include one in the other or vice versa. In this case, you get to play Pokemon Go in GTA, but it’s not a type of gameplay developed by either Rockstar or Nintendo. Instead, it comes from a very lazy gamer. And you’re probably wondering how that works.
Well, to begin with, the Pokemon Go game actually requires its players to walk in order to find Pokemon or to hatch special Pokemon Eggs. This aspect has actually led to many innovative ways to not have to walk in order to find Pokemon – there are reports of people using hacks, bots, GPS spoofing and drones just so they wouldn’t have to walk. All of these are offenses in the gaming world and GTA is no exception from that rule. However, a GTA V modder by the screen name of LudicrousBeach has found a way to play Pokemon Go without ever having to leave the house.
This is how it works: the Pokemon Go GTA Edition is a mod that recreates the Pokemon Go gameplaying in GTA V. As a result, you can find many of game’s features in the mod such as Pokestops that are located all over Blaine County and Los Santos.
However, there are a few changes that you will probably notice immediately if you’re a hardcore Pokemon Go player. For example, only the Pokemon that are in their first stage of their evolution can be found in the wild. Another example is that there are no Gyms (because the mod is designed for a single player). It should also be noted that some Pokemon models aren’t finished so some of them may appear without eyes or other parts.
There are many changes, but if you really don’t want to get up and find those Pokemon and still really want to play the game, this is the best option for you because it won’t get you banned.
