Niantic will be handing out lifetime bans for those who created bots to trick the game for location spoofing and other hacks. So if you are one of those people who used bots or other hacking tricks. You might just get hit with the permanent ban. It looks like Niantic will be handing out a lot of bans and it will be interesting to see how many user they ban. I am guessing half the population of Pokemon Go Trainers will be banned. We will see how this develops in the future.
