Play Pokemon GO on your Windows 10 PC

Pokemon GO is the hottest mobile game around right now, but it is only available for Android and iOS. That’s a bummer because many Windows 10 Mobile users would love to play the game. However, while Pokemon GO won’t be available for Windows 10 Mobile anytime soon, it can be played on Windows 10 right now.

To get it up and running, you’re required to download Bluestacks and an Android emulator. Furthermore, seeing as Pokemon GO was not designed for Windows 10 in mind, we suggest anticipating problems here and there because they will arise.

How can I play Pokemon Go on Windows 10?
