How to download Pokémon Go for PC

If you’re hoping to play Pokémon Go on PC, we’ve got good news for you. You can do so by grabbing the handy Android emulator, Bluestacks, and following the directions in the official Bluestacks tech support video above.

However, keep in mind that this is against Niantic’s terms of service. As Pokémon Go is location-based, and playing it on PC requires spoofing. Bluestacks highlights that they do not endorse it, and any loss of data, ban, or other recourse taken by Niantic as a consequence of this process is your responsibility if you choose to play it this way.

Can I download Pokémon Go hacks?

There are heaps of links claiming to offer hacked versions of Pokémon Go floating around, offering fake GPS, location spoofing, and hacked radars. However, we strongly advise against using these. Not only is it against Niantic’s terms of service, which puts you at risk of being banned and losing your account, but it is also potentially unsafe, as cracked and hacked files may infect your device. It’s just not worth it, no matter how badly you want that critter that’s not available in your region.

And that’s it for our Pokémon Go download guide. If you’re looking for more location-based fun, be sure to check out our list of the best games like Pokémon Go for more fun in the wide world.
