Pokémon Lock: Play Pokemon Go on Lock Screen
The craze of Pokémon Go was unprecedented and many people took to streets to catch their favorite Pokémon and Pikachu as soon as it got released. The adorable monster also took many people to dangerous nooks and corners and became a safety concern in some locations.
Gaming enthusiasts had already developed many emulators for their favorite Nintendo console games to play them on iOS devices. However, Pokémon Go is Nintendo’s official game app for smartphones and smart devices. That is why its release was taken by much enthusiasm in the Jailbreak community as well.
Many developers set out to see what they could do with features of Pokémon Go and as a result many apps and tweaks emerged in the jailbreak community to enhance Pokémon Go game play. One of the minor yet important tweaks that surfaced out of this craze is Pokémon Lock.

Once the installation is complete, Pokémon Go starts working at once. You don’t need to configure it or change any settings.

Restrictions of Pokémon Lock for iPhone lock screen
It is of utmost importance that you disable passcode for your iPhone lock screen for Pokémon Lock to work properly. If you fail or forget to disable passcode for iPhone lock screen and launch Pokémon Go, you won’t be able to play Pokémon on iPhone lock screen. It may also happen that your Pokémon Go app crash altogether.
Therefore you shouldn’t attempt to play Pokémon on iPhone with Pokémon Lock installed on your iPhone and passcode for iPhone lock screen enabled. It’s really annoying but unfortunately that’s the tradeoff.
Another thing that you must take into account is that with Pokémon Lock, your iPhone battery is consumed at a much faster rate. Since that is the case, it’s recommended that you carry an extra battery or a power hub if you plan to stay outside for a longer time.
That’s all folks! Good luck for your quest of Pokémon and Pikachu.
