Android does have tons of features to offer but it’s not that good to make it your Primary OS of your PC. If you’re an Android gamer, only thing that limits everything is the comfort of playing games, small screen size & lot more. Many people might suggest you to install Remix OS & enjoy Android games directly on PC but it would be a hell lot of pain as you won’t be able to enjoy Windows like features. To tackle all these issues, Android Emulators came into the picture.
Pokemon Go the augmented reality game has taken the Internet by storm. Different Pokemon GO hack have been released to make the game lot easier. Everyone playing this game has been somewhat like turned into zombies who are stumbling across different cities around the world. Days after the release of this augmented reality game, people were found walking into unsafe neighborhoods, barricading into people’s houses, getting robbed by burglars in the process of catching Pokemon’s.
In this article, I am going to explain a way, using which you can play Pokemon Go on PC from the comfort and safety of your house. All you require is a working Windows computer, a bit of patience and brain.
To start playing Pokemon Go in your computer right from your home, you will need to install and set up a bunch of tools exactly in the right order. To start with, just download the files given below and follow the given instructions carefully.
- The first thing you will need is a windows PC to install the software.
- Bluestacks. Download it from the official website from here.
- KingRoot, a root tool for Android devices. (Download)
- Lucky Patcher, an Android apk tool to modify and alter app permissions. (Download)
- Fake GPS Pro: An app to spoof your location. The free version of the app offers very fewer features, and I advise to purchase the pro version. It only costs like $5 on the Google Play Store. (Download)
- Last, but not the least. The game itself, download Pokemon Go but don’t install or run it until it’s time, or it won’t work. (Download)
After downloading, just put all these files into a single folder so you can easily find them later. Do not rush to install any of the apps without knowing what to do next. If you will carefully follow what I have mentioned below, you will be playing Pokemon GO with any issues.
How to setup & play Pokemon GO in Bluestacks
1. Install Bluestacks
First, install Bluestacks on your computer. Make sure it’s working fine and doesn’t crash while running. If you’re experiencing issue download a latest fresh copy from their website and install it again.
2. Install Kingroot
Once you have installed bluestacks, you need to install Kingroot. For that, open Bluestacks, Click the apk symbol on the left, open the respective KingRoot apk on your computer, and KingRoot will install automatically within a few seconds.
Now run KingRoot, scroll to the bottom of the app and click ‘Try it’, then click Fix now.
When you see your Security index, click ‘Optimize now’. Now close the app, we won’t require it again.
3. Restart BlueStacks
Click the wheel icon in the top-right corner of BlueStacks and select ‘Restart Android Plugin’.
Remember how you did this step, you will need it again in the further process.
4. Install and run Lucky Patcher
The install process is as same as for KingRoot. Just click APK on the left-hand side of BlueStacks and select the Lucky Patcher apk on your computer, and it will install.
When you open Lucky Patcher for the first time, you will be presented with a SuperSu screen to grant the app root permission. Click ‘Allow’ to grant root access to the app as it is required for the app to run.
Now inside Lucky Patcher, go to ‘Rebuild and Install’ in the bottom right and then head to SDcard-> Windows-> BstSharedFolder. Here, just select the FakeGPS apk file and install it as a system app.
You will need to restart BlueStacks to apply all these changes. Just go to the BlueStacks home-screen, click on the wheel icon and then click ‘Restart Android Plugin’ as mentioned earlier in the above steps.
5. Install Pokemon GO
Install the app similarly as you installed KingRoot and Lucky Patcher. Just don’t launch the app at this point as it may not work properly yet.
6. Check your location settings
In BlueStacks, click the wheel icon in the top-right corner and select Settings. Go to location and make sure the Mode is set to High accuracy.
Any windows GPS service running needs to be disabled because it will conflict with BlueStack’s GPS service. In Windows, press Windows Key + I to access the settings app. Then head over to Privacy -> Location and make sure ‘Location for this device’ is off.
7. Set UP FakeGPS
Head back to Lucky Patcher and you will see FakeGps in the list of installed apps.
Click FakeGPs from the list and select ‘Launch App.’ A window will pop-up explaining how to operate the FakeGPS app. Read the instructions given carefully and click OK.
Click the three dotted button in the top-right, then go to Settings, check Expert Mode option. A warning message will pop-up, read it and confirm by clicking OK to close the warning.
Click the back arrow in the top left to get back to the home-screen of the map. You will see a map. Now select your preferred location or any highly populated place on earth.
Click the entry and select Save to add that location to your favorites list. To engage the fake location, click on the Orange Play button in the bottom right corner.
8. Play Pokemon GO
Now, after all this, we are finally ready to play the game.
You will have to set up Pokemon Go exactly as you would set it up on a standard Android or iOS device. Log in with Google or old ID and it should automatically load your previously set up Pokemon Go account.
When the game finally starts, you should find yourself at a fake location which you engaged earlier through FakeGPS. Every time you want to move to another location or a different spot, you have to go back to FakeGPS and engage a new location. Now enjoy playing Pokemon GO right from your computer. Just make sure you avoid making long-distance map jumps as it may reveal GPS spoofing.
