How to play Pokémon Go on your PC or MAC

We know that to play Pokémon Go, you need to move, and even a lot of movement. As we saw yesterday, the game takes young people to walk 5 km more per week, which is quite impressive. But sometimes we want to play but we can’t act like for example in the office. Well, know that it is possible to play directly from your computer.

There are even two techniques for this, you either “cast” your smartphone’s screen or you use an Android emulator. In both cases you will definitely not move, but you will still be able to catch some Pokémon that will come directly at you.
