How to Play Pokemon Go on Windows PC or Mac with BlueStacks (and Nox)

Pokemon Go isn’t for everyone.

Those with a limited cellular data plan, cheap smartphone, and physically challenged won’t be able to enjoy the happiness and excitement thoroughly that thing game brings.

Now, I don’t want to argue as to why Niantic doesn’t implement such features to make the game more accessible. Throughout this blog, I’ve shown you how to fake walking in Pokemon Go and trick the system into thinking that your iPhone is not jailbroken.

Today, I’m going to show you another hack as well. If you are going through some struggles that prevent you from playing Pokemon Go outside, here is how to play it on your computer instead.


Hold on, a version designed specifically for Mac users has been released. More details can be found here.

How to Play Pokemon Go on a Computer (Windows / Mac)

Step 1: The first thing you need is a software called BlueStacks. You can download it for free from [Windows | Mac OS X]

Step 2: Install it on your computer and open BlueStacks

Step 3: Click on the Search option and type in Pokemon Go

Step 4: Then choose Install from the Play Store > Accept

After the game is downloaded, click Open to get started right away. Everything should stay the same if you didn’t notice.

This is the official game, and now you get a chance to experience it on a computer. I think BlueStacks have done an excellent job at bringing Pokemon Go to the PC system. However, this is more geared towards people who couldn’t afford some good mobile data or is having trouble moving around.

And yes, there is a GPS cheat for this as well. Check out the video below. (Warning: You can get banned for doing this.)

Nox App Player

We’ve also found another software that you can use to experience Pokemon Go on PC, and it’s called Nox. Unlike BlueStacks, this app player will only allow you to run the program on Windows computer.

The cool thing here is that you will be able to control your character using the WASD keycaps. Upon launching, you will find yourself in Sydney, one of the most beautiful places in the world with tons of pokestops.

  1. Pokemon Go does not work on blue stacks for mas os. already downloaded latest version of pokemon go and latest version of bluestacks

  2. I know absolutely nothing when it comes to stuff like this. I download the Pokemon Webspoof App and click through it until i find the one that opens up x code. When i do that, an error occurs. It says no non-expiring provisioning profiles were found. Can anyone explain to me how to fix this in simple terms?
    Thank You

  3. Got it to work for mac. The problem is my press buttons are blacked out, hatching eggs crashes bluestacks, I cannot enter gps coordinates into fake gps, and I’m in the process of getting around soft bans for every move. I caught a Fearow the game crashed but I kept the pokemon. I had to pay 2.99 for the fake gps with settings enabled. I was able to set the app as system in lucky patcher. Backup app first than when it Uninstalls install it with the backup everytime you open bluestacks. I’m using the spoof to patrol the park next to me, that’s all its good for right now..I’m getting the feeling I’m posting this in a non helpful spot so I’m gonna copy pasta this until I get good help.

  4. This just locks up the quad core machine, and it crashes the dual core. I might try it on my laptop, which is a sandbox machine, but I don’t expect any better results.

  5. The pokemon go for desktop link says that it can read/change data i exchange on website i go to, but if i delete that will that stop it?

  6. I download the Pokemon Webspoof App and click through it until i find the one that opens up x code. When i do that, an error occurs. It says no non-expiring provisioning profiles were found.
