The statement reads:

Cheating and Bans

Trainers,

After reviewing many reports of in-game cheating, we have started taking action against players taking unfair advantage of and abusing Pokémon GO. Moving forward, we will continue to terminate accounts that show clear signs of cheating.

Our main priority with Pokémon GO is to provide a fair, fun, and legitimate game experience for all players. If our system has determined that you cheated, then you will receive an email stating that your account has been terminated.

If you do believe your account has been terminated incorrectly, you should report it to the Pokémon GO Help Center:

It’s good to see the developers coming forward to take harsh action against those who are ruining the game for the community. This should serve as a deterrent for others who were tempted to use cheats in the game as it can lead to a permanent ban.
