Is all of this an IP theft? No. This is because this is a pokemon client and clients often plug themselves into servers making use of public APIs. It is like Poki for windows phone but on a bigger scale. For those who do not know, Poki is a third party Pocket aka read it later client for WP. Poki is infact one of the best windows universal apps out there.
It makes use of publicly available APIs of Pocket. Same is the case here where the developer behind PoGo made a client app that interacts with the Niantic’s Pokemon Go servers and stream its content. So it is not an IP theft in any way.
