Trainers, this post could get a lot of controversy, so we hope you will stand with us if it comes to that.
Recently, we’ve received a huge number of complaints and inquiries about one particular Youtube channel and the truthfulness of content presented there. Of course, we are talking about FsuAtl, a Pokémon GO youtuber that commonly promotes spoofing, hacking and cheating.
Over the past few months, FsuAtl has published a number of videos that cover the following topics, all of which are against the in-game Terms of Service:
- GPS Spoofing
- “Coin Hacks”
- General cheating tips
Aside from this, FsuAtl is guilty of sharing a ludicrous number of videos that can’t be interpreted as anything else as fake news. Here’s a short list of misleading, mistaken, or simply fake video titles we gathered just following his channel for a couple of weeks:
- “TEAM ROCKET MEWTWO EVENT IN POKEMON GO!? NEW UPDATE EVENT POKEMON GO!” – uhm, what?
- “THE BIGGEST POKEMON IN POKEMON GO! SHINY POKEMON CATCHES & NEW UPDATE!” – featuring Alolan Exeggutor in Pokémon GO?
- “OMG! SUPER RARE SHINY EGG HATCH POKEMON GO!? NEW EASTER UPDATE SHINY EGG?” – there are no Shiny Eggs
- “YOU CAN BREED IN POKEMON GO? NEW POKEMON GO UPDATE BREEDING NEWS!” – there have been no breeding news in a while.
This is a true Public Service Announcement, if we ever published one. Stay away from these videos and spend your time elsewhere, there is nothing to see FsuAtl’s channel beside fake news, click bait and generally low quality content. How FsuAtl managed to get 600k subscribers is beyond us.
There are better, more prominent and more interesting Pokémon GO YouTube channels out there.
