Reverse bans on some 'Pokémon Go' accounts

Niantic has said that in its quest to block bots and data scrapers, some people who used third-party map apps to locate the virtual critters were wrongly blocked.

Pokémon Go players who felt they were wrongly banned might get a reprieve.

"Each end-user app can be used as a collection tool by the app creator, invisibly collecting and forwarding data to the app creator without the knowledge of the end user," Niantic writes. 

Niantic says they rearranged few things in its back-end and can reverse bans on a "small subset" of accounts. But that won't apply to accounts doing nothing but remotely accessing and capturing Pokemon, taking part in gym battles or grabbing supplies from Pokéstops.

"Our main priority is to provide a fair, fun and legitimate experience for all players, so, aggressive banning will continue to occur for players who engage in these kinds of activities."
