Pokémon Go on Mac? It is possible and we teach you how to do it

We continue with Pokémon Go because at the end of the day, it is still one of the most downloaded and played games in the world, it came to revolutionize the market and we all want to have one that is a free hour per day to be able to hunt them all.

The issue is that, out there some people, including myself, we don’t have much time to spend all day from one place to another simply trying to catch Pokémon, but you don’t have to worry about this since there are certain traps that allow us to Play Pokémon Go from a computer, in this case from a Mac.

It is not complicated to achieve it although obviously you have to be aware before doing anything that has its dangers, one of these is the fact that they can ban you from Niantic and we forget that account, so as we always do we recommend that To use this method, which is basically simulating our location, you use a secondary account, more so that you do not lose the progress you have in the account that you currently use every time you go out hunting.

The video that we are going to leave you next lasts about 11 minutes, a long time, but we wanted to explain in detail everything you need to be able to enjoy Pokémon Go on Mac or even Windows, because you have to comment that this tutorial also works on Windows the only difference with Mac is that to make it work it is necessary that you have the ADB drivers installed, but in addition to that, it is not necessary otherwise.

How to play Pokémon Go on Mac

It is not too complex as I told you before, the only thing we are going to need is to have the Chrome Vysor extension obviously for Google Chrome, after this we connect our mobile device with USB debugging activated and ready.

You have to keep in mind that it won’t be the same; I don’t see you running from one place to another with the computer. The idea is just to be at home quiet, maybe having a coffee while playing this great game, but that’s why we recommend using a new account, because in addition to the risk of banning by Niantic, you can completely ruin your experience with this game that It was basically created with the idea of ​​having to go outside to look for Pokémon.

So we recommend you out of curiosity, if you use it, use FakeGPS, the computer and play the game, but if you really want to progress and that all that progress is saved to enjoy the next updates of Pokémon Go that promise and much, then play totally legal, it’s the best you can use.
