Pokemon GO is a phenomenon. You either love it or you have no idea what the fuss is about. There is really no middle ground. A lot of fans though have complained that Pokemon GO is not available for Windows Phone. Now, it is. At least for Windows 10 Mobile and if you are willing to do some digital legwork.
Using a third party client called PoGo UWP (Universal Windows Platform) Windows 10 Mobile users can enjoy Pokemon GO just like Android and iPhone users. There are just a few steps to go through to make it work. Over on Winbeta.org they have the full steps but it requires downloading several programs, having a Pokemon Training Club account and either an Android phone or iPhone available. If you don’t have an Android or iPhone handy to create a Pokemon Training Club account, you can use an Android emulator like Bluestacks or Andy to create one. It is essential though so no way around it.
Steps to begin include:
1 Creating a Pokemon Trainer Club account (can be done online)
2 Log into that account either on an Android phone or iPhone, or use Bluestacks
Now it gets tricky. You will need three files that are available here. There are also more detailed instructions on how to finish this installation there.
The Windows 10 Mobile port is not official nor is it without its problems. This is a beta program so there will be bugs and probably random crashes. It is interesting to note that Microsoft has teams working on a port of Pokemon GO to Windows 10 Mobile- though they have yet to make anything publicly available.
Are you a Pokemon GO player? If so, what trainer rank are you now? Do you even care about Pokemon GO?
