Pokémon GO for Pc Description

Pokémon GO has now introduced the Trainer Battles feature. Enjoy one-on-one Pokémon battles with other Trainers nearby, or practice battling against team leaders Spark, Candela, and Blanche! Trainers can earn rewards for participating in battle and show off exciting Pokémon skills in one of three different Trainer Battle Leagues. Join Trainers across the globe who are discovering Pokémon as they explore the world around them. Pokémon GO is the global gaming sensation that has been downloaded over 850 million times and named "Best Mobile Game" by The Game Developers Choice Awards and "Best App of the Year" by TechCrunch. Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Pikachu, and many other Pokémon have been discovered! Pokémon are out there, and you need to find them. As you walk around a neighborhood, your smartphone will vibrate when there’s a Pokémon nearby. Take aim and throw a Poké Ball… You’ll have to stay alert, or it might get away! Search far and wide for Pokémon and items Certain Pokémon appear near their native environment—look for Water-type Pokémon by lakes and oceans. Visit PokéStops and Gyms—found at interesting places like museums, art installations, historical markers, and monuments—to stock up on Poké Balls and helpful items. Catching, hatching, evolving, and more As you level up, you’ll be able to catch more-powerful Pokémon to complete your Pokédex. You can add to your collection by hatching Pokémon Eggs based on the distances you walk. Help your Pokémon evolve by catching many of the same kind. Choose a Buddy Pokémon to walk with and earn Candy that will help you make your Pokémon stronger. Compete in epic Gym battles You’ll join one of three teams and battle for the ownership of Gyms with your Pokémon at your side. As your Charmander evolves to Charmeleon and then Charizard, you can battle together to defeat a Gym and assign your Pokémon to defend it against all comers. Team up to defeat powerful Raid Bosses A Raid Battle is a cooperative gameplay experience that encourages you to work with up to 20 other Trainers to defeat an extremely powerful Pokémon known as the Raid Boss. If you succeed in defeating it in battle, you’ll have the chance to catch an extra powerful Pokémon of your own! It’s time to get moving—your real-life adventures await!

How to download, install and play Pokémon GO on your PC and Mac

If you want to install and play the Pokémon GO game on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use Pokémon GO for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: Pokémon GO game for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Pokémon GO in the search bar and press Search. Click on Pokémon GO game icon. A window of Pokémon GO on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your Game will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed Games.
You should see the Pokémon GO icon. Click on it and start playing the Game

Game Reviews

  • Niantic is the worst gaming company to exist

    By Cogentx
    Don’t spend a single cent on this game, you aren’t valued as a customer, they TOS your rights away, and they do not care about providing a proper product. They are making the game anti-user because they know they can take in more money than bad press can take away. Their customer support is nonexistent and doesn’t even read your messages. Anyone that wants proof can dm me on reddit, same name.
  • First 50,000-100,000 idk ive had 5 phones since then, but the same account.

    By KAMO1996
    This probably wont get read but anyway. Ive had Go since it started. I truly love Pokemon (just pointing that out). My review is based off the more recent things. If someone is in the same gym as me why cant i get there TRAINER CODE and add them as a friend. Ive learned not everybody is as open to meet people and play as i am. Ive joined a couple community's but there pretty lame. I'm 22 and not to many people my age play as much or people in general in my area. I want 5 PERSON TEAMS for like a TOURNAMENT or something idk. In Concord, North Carolina after 5pm theres like no more RAIDS i get off work take all the gyms and have nothing else to do. Also make a SOUNDTRACK im sick of the same music, everything has evolved yall can do better. Last week AR+ got better, yall kept your promise👌🏾. I travel to Charlotte alot (the best NC can do) and i still get my best catches in good ol’ downtown Concord between the library and the jail. I promote this app like its crack and im addicted to it like its heroine. I need more RAIDS after 5pm, better Pokemon everywhere, better eggs, and more content (thats not crap). Also has no one said anything about a Pokemon CENTER like a little stop that heals all the Pokemon obviously. This will be everywhere because its my first review in 3 years.
  • Glitch?

    By Miyu Suzumaki
    Yeah uh I opened the app, it said there was a clefairy near by, but when I clicked on it the screen glitched and the clefairy disappeared... *edit: the clefairy reappeared, I think my little trainer just walked away too fast
  • If you can add these functions...

    By applescwiz
    I have Pokémon Go downloaded back in July of 2016, but I didn’t play much at that time. Recently, I returned back to the game and would like to see if the team is still working on improvement or adding more features to the game. I would like to see if your team can add these features to the game. 1.)The “Search Function” in the Pokédex if possible, which makes the searching easier instead of scrolling down on the page. 2. Is it possible to add more sorting options under the Pokémon session? For example, I would like to be able to sort by type or filtering if possible. 3. It is good to see the journal history. However, are there any ways to see which gyms or raids you have completed in the past? 4. The weekly progress is well, but is there a daily progress or monthly progress? I would like to see the statistic about how many gyms or raids I have battled or other statistic if possible. Problem: I often see don’t have GPS signal when I login to the game, but I confirmed that I had signal during that time and I was able to browse online with good speed. Thanks for creating such amazing game and please keep it up for the good work. I look forward to more good games from your company.
  • Weak rewards, mostly trash

    By Frank Jaramillo
    This game is so time consuming and the rewards are so weak and pointless. Just a great way to distract people with the bare minimum of fun, just enough to get you to play a little longer. Boring and pointless. A chore at best. Every pokemon you catch has low iv, it takes FOREVER to check iv (99% of pokemon u catch is trash) shiny? Forget about it, no shiny for u. Avatars all look like lame clones. Battling is BORING. Catching the same trash to evolve your pikachu which is also trash. Just a big dumpster trash party of garbage and.... writing this review is much more fun than playing that game.
  • Ditto

    By Jaime102595
    Love the game hate the fact that you guys made ditto so hard to catch/spawn been trying to catch one for months now and can’t find one, yet everyone I know has caught one!
  • Fix spoofing

    By Trevor23x
    This is a serious issue in my town witch makes the game so irritating the same guy has 6 accounts and takes every gym in town. You can’t ever get in any of them. It amazes me that you guys stand idle and let dirt bags like this ruin the game. I’ve turned this guy in 5 times and you guys don’t do a thing about it. Rip Pokémon go
  • Obsessed to no end

    By Kariblackford877
    Love the graphics! Needs new Pokémon to come out more often seeing a lot of the same ones repetitively and I HATE that you can only send 10 gifts a day please change that! And perhaps more Pokémon coming out when we’re at home & can’t go outside to go walking cause it’s snowing or raining or something.
  • Started a few months ago.

    By Sido74118
    I love this game so much. It has really helped me make progress dealing with my social anxiety.
  • Problem

    By Frost Beard
    I started the game for the first time. I logged in using a Pokémon Trainer account. At the point of catching my first Pokémon I received a red notice telling me ‘that item can’t be used right now (26)’. I’ve no way to do anything. I’ve reinstalled the app and logged out and in. iPhone 7.
  • Really needs work

    By P@b1ito
    This game leads to more disappointment than fun. With the amount of time a player needs to put into this game, the disconnection issues and freezing really make it feel like wasted time. And after spending time walking all over to hunt Pokémon just to have them flee. Then raids where you work your back side off to have those be uncatchable is extremely disappointing. It’s nice that there are themed events that rotate out so there is a built in variety, but all the issues that interfere with gameplay only pushes players away from the game. The thrill of catching new Pokémon can not last forever. So the other part of the game play is to evolve and power them up. New players spend a lot of time hunting new Pokémon to add to their collection. Expanding the backpack to hold more supplies to catch them, and Pokémon box to hold them. Then they realize they shouldn’t have bothered with some deadend Pokémon that can’t evolve. Those just clog up the Pokémon box. Transfer all of those. Catch Pokémon that are helpful in evolving or powering up your collection. Players will find that they only use a couple dozen or so for fighting in gyms and raids the rest are not used. Plan and play accordingly. If the connections issues were addressed it would really help, otherwise this game is not a good time waster.
  • Not for non urban areas

    By Agjdhdjdlskdj
    The game will only frustrate you if you don’t live a major city.
