PokeStops Speed Limits

Earlier this year, an update of the phenomenal mobile game introduced the disappearance of Pokemon sightings completely when over a certain speed, which players discovered was around 25 mph.

Even if you have clicked the ?I?m a passenger? dialogue notification, you will get the dreaded ?Please try again? message when spinning at some PokeStops above the said speed.

This is to prevent players to play the game while driving to avoid road accidents.

However, players found, to their disappointment, that Niantic, the company behind the virtual reality mobile game has put speed limits on Pokestops as well. This, on the other hand was found by some players to be as low as 10 mph.
