If you’re a Pokémon Go player, you might have thought at least once about playing the game on PC or Mac. It’s hard to imagine how that would work though, because actual walking is an essential part of the gameplay. However, now, there is a way for you to play the game without actually walking, if you find that undesirable but still want to play the game.
It’s not an official Pokémon Go installer; it’s more of a trick that implies screen mirroring and a smartphone that can run the game.
The screen mirroring can be done with the help of the free Vysor app which will show your Android device on the PC or your iOS device screen on your Mac. At this point you’re probably thinking how you’re going to find Pokémon if you’re not walking. Don’t worry, you will find Pokémon even if you aren’t walking.
To begin with, you’ll have to enable the Developer options on your smartphone. This, in turn, will allow you to enable your USB debugging option.
In order to do this you’ll have to go to your Settings>> About Phone and then tap Build number 7 times. When you go back to your Settings menu, you’ll notice that a new option has appeared named Developer options. This is when you enable the USB debugging mode option in this panel.
Now, you’ll have to download and install the Vysor app for Chrome on your PC. Afterwards you’ll have to download and install ADB android drivers. Once you’ve completed all of these tasks, you can connect your handset to the PC via an USB cable.
This will enable your smartphone screen to automatically appear on your computer and that is called a mirrored screen. You can then open Pokémon Go and simply wait for the Pokémon to come to you.
