NecroBot for Pokemon GO Not Working

When it comes to NecroBot you will apparently not find any better free Pokemon GO Bot on the web. There are two sources you can use and these include and, but when any of these websites are not working this can be a little stressful if you are looking for PokeStops.

Is NecroBot down for you? Two of the main issues with NecroBot is when the service goes down and when there are no usable PokeStops found in your area, but this could be down to your maximum distance being too small.

NecroBot’s main features include evolving and transferring Pokemon, along with Farming PokeStops, character movement algorithms are designed to appear natural. No teleporting from coordinate to coordinate. If you are having any issue with this service please do report below.

  • Jeronimo

    Is there a developer online who can share some inside information with us? Might it be that niantic recently updated or patched the game?

  • Thomas Light

    I am using 8.5, and keep getting this message:
    [11:49:29] System.Threading.Tasks.TaskCanceledException: A task was canceled.
    at System.Runtime.CompilerServices.TaskAwaiter.ThrowForNonSuccess(Task task)

    at PokemonGo.RocketAPI.Extensions.HttpClientExtensions.d__2`1.MoveNext() in C:UsersciamoSourceReposNecroBotFeroxRevPokemonGo.RocketAPIExtensionsHttpClientExtensions.cs:line 98

    Is this an error in my configuration, or will I need to be patient and wait for an update to fix the problem?

  • danny salvatore

    I have done some troubleshooting. It seems pokemon go is not working while on wifi. Pokemon go works with mobile data but not when i switch to wifi. Think this is why the bot is not working either. Try it and let me know.

  • danny salvatore

    its working now.

  • Jepa

    The bot is run on a pc, how does it not work with wifi? Yesterday it was working perfectly

  • Eric Schilling Bruh

    Why is necro randomly sniping ? its waisting time how do i turn that off. everything i change in the config messes it up.

  • George W

    mine started working again for a few hours and is down again with the “no poke stops found” error

  • danny salvatore

    its a wifi problem with the server. The servers on not working correctly when using wifi. Its been off and on today. If you play the game on your phone in wifi mode it will not work but it will work on mobile data mode. This is a problem on the server end, not a problem with necrobot.

  • danny salvatore

    if you switch your phone from mobile data and then put it in wifi everything will disappear. Its been intermittent all day.

  • Haze

    my bot just stopped a few minutes ago. Anyone else with problemes right now ?

  • Joshua Yoong Tze Cherng

    yes mine also having the same issue, it stop after logging in and catching 1 pokemon or going to 1 pokestop

  • Richard Isaac

    Under your config, change these options to “false”:

    “GetSniperInfoFromPokezz”: false,
    “GetOnlyVerifiedSniperInfoFromPokezz”: false,

  • Abhineeth K S

    necrobot website says its no more, the bot is no more in github

  • Don Romantico


  • Cooler1348

    So the bot can’t be used anymore or we just have to wait this out?

  • Cooler1348

    I have this same problem when will it fix?

  • ResourceUnlimited

    its been discontinued guys this what they said on their site.

    Due to legal action being started against other bot creators/devs (we did not receive a letter yet) the Project development will be stopped. All Source Files / Downloads will be removed. We now have to say Good Bye to the awesome Community. Over 100k Members on Discord and 500k Downloads a day! The Discord Community will remain open for Discussions. It was fun, we had a nice time. Thank you for the Donaions, all Devs will be getting their share by today.

    Your NecroBot Team

  • Robert Tehoke

    Read people. Necrobots finished, won’t be back up, they pulled all downloads/files/updates everything. If you still have the main zip you can remove and do the setup again, it will log onto your account an hit pokestops but that is IT and I doubt even that will last. Trust me, permabans are on the way.

  • James Davidson

    Why Necrobot Why??!!! D;

  • Miao

    i got same problem. have you fixed it already?

  • Miao

    then save

    keep exe backup incase something goes wrong

  • Gale

  • Gale

    Thank you Gale!

  • Gale

  • Phil

    Using 0.8.6
    Error: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
    in PoGo.Necrobot.Logic.Inventory.>GetPokemons>d__34.MoveNext()

    How I resolve that?

  • Casey Smith

    My bot has still been running fine up until today, no matter what I do to the settings I no longer transfer any pokemon and get stuck with a full inv message now.

  • Kylebe

    Ive been using this a few days and now every pokemon runs away after the first try. but necro is hitting pokestops all the time. any ideas?

  • Eliezer Garcia

    sii if your inventory is full. if not try changing your public ip

  • Steve Avenged

    Instead of cheating or being lazy here’s an idea, play the game legitimately instead of being little glitch and hacker fucks.

  • bb sn

    Run it as Admin

  • kencihi

    can anyone help me with this maximum distance..?

  • viguiry

    You mad?

  • viguiry

    Was looking for that, do you know a way around it? Apperently only our provider can do that now becauseof adopi.

  • viguiry

    Same problem. Doing different test with different logins, device id etc, i think it might come from the way that the bot is login on pokemon go.

  • Torture4Fun

    Is it ever going to work again? 10-13-16
    maximum distance crap…….

  • MetalDragon

    Necro bot can’t work right now because after the update you need to verify that you are a human in order to play the game. I verified it on my phone but necro bot still wont work

  • Ethan

    My NecroBot is still working up until today, when gen 2 was launched it wont update over necrobot

  • Cailan Page
