Following the considerable diffusion of Android smartphones and tablets, as well as iPhones and iPads, the development of many Pokémon games has turned to these platforms, as these are much more accessible to many players.

There are in fact several Pokémon themed games on mobile devices but, in case your device is not performing enough from the hardware point of view and therefore does not support the download, you can turn to the use of an Android emulator . Thanks to the latter you can, in fact, emulate the Android operating system on your computer and thus make sure you download and play Pokémon games.

In this regard, in the following lines I will illustrate how to download and configure  BlueStacks , one of the most famous Android emulators, so that you can use it for the purpose you have proposed. BlueStacks, in fact, is one of the best  free Android emulators and can be installed and configured in a simple and immediate way, thus not requiring complex procedures for its use. Before starting, however, I would like to point out that, since this emulator is free, inside you will find advertising banners that come in the form of recommendations for the installation of sponsored apps. If you want to remove them, you need to purchase a subscription at a price of $ 4 / month or $ 40 / year.

To download this software, connect on the website  and, on the main page displayed, first press the Download BlueStacks button , then click Download , to start downloading the installation file.

Once this is done, first click on Continue and then on Install , type your Mac’s administration password and click on Install assistant . At this point, wait a few minutes for the automatic installation to be completed, then press the Open system preferences button , if required.

This will open the Mac settings panel : in this section, first click on Allow and then press the lock icon , located at the bottom left. We’re almost there: to finish installing the BlueStacks emulator on macOS, type your Mac password once again and then press Unlock .

After installing BlueStacks you need to configure it using a Google account you have. In this case, the procedure for doing this is the same for both Windows and macOS.

Then click on Start , then indicate your email address (or your phone number ) and password in the appropriate text fields you see on the screen. Now press first on Next , then on I accept and finally on  Start using BlueStacks .

After all these preliminary operations you can finally see the BlueStacks home screen and you can then start using the Android emulator to download Pokémon games to your computer.
