As we all know that Pokémon Go is one of the revolutionary mobile game applications, humanity has ever produced. In addition, the game continues on its enormous popularity internationally. But here is the thing; Pokémon Go is designed to play outside, while exploring places near you and searching for different Pokémon Bank.
But the problem here is; there are people like you and me who don’t like to go outdoors just for playing an android game. Exactly, it’s pretty much inconvenient. At the same time, the game is thrilling in its own sense.
That’s why I’ve decided to come up with a tutorial where I can guide on how to play Pokémon Go at home without moving on android device and here the great part is that; you don’t need to root your device.
See, I know you must have come across a bunch of online tutorials which tells you the same thing. But you see, hear the thing is, many of those tutorials are junk and doesn’t offer value to users.
Here are the following steps you need to follow;
Now go to your phone’s settings > tap on ‘About Phone’ section > enable the ‘Developer Option’ on your device either by tapping 6 or 7 times on build number or just by enabling developer option (if your phone allows you to)
Once it is done, now under the developer option > click on ‘select mock location app’ > here select GPS Joystick.
Step 3 (optional):
To ensure, everything will work properly, try set your phone’s GPS mode to High accuracy.
Now you need to launch the ‘GPS Joystick’ app and here you can locate any location you want to (it can be India or the United States)
You can location the location using Google Maps under the app’s interface and once the location is set, you just need to hit the ‘Start Button’. That’s it
Now you can launch Pokémon Go and you’ll see a Joystick on the screen that will help you to move around without stepping out of your home.
Safety Measures while using the Technique:
Remember this trick is eventually against the Pokémon Go’s stature, so try not to move around too fast using Joystick as it may get your Pokémon Go account banned.
This method is suitable for those who are living in a small town or simply for those who don’t want to go out just to play an android game. This method has worked fine for me but it may not work on some android devices like Galaxy S5 or any old handset.
