    Heard about this the other day - you can shadow ban someone in Pokemon Go? What's this now!? lol

    What was the reason for this being implemented?

    Niantic is just warning people who they think may be cheating. They also go through occasional full banning. When they did the shadow banning a couple weeks ago it even started banning some people who weren't cheating due to gps drift of passengers in cars.

    It’s when you’re banned without being notified.

    What kind of things would result in such a thing?

    People fake their GPS location and use bots or other programs to find Pokémon.
