Play Pokemon GO on VMOS
Many Pokemon GO players still ask questions about whether Pokemon GO can be played on the emulator. The answer is Yes, Pokemon GO can still be played on the emulator. But not an ordinary emulator (Android Emulator for PC). Pokemon Go can still be played on an emulator called VMOS.
VMOS is an android emulator that runs on Android smartphones. Unlike other emulators (running on a PC). This means you can do anything in VMOS without worrying about having an impact on your real device.
Which Pokemon Go is suitable for VMOS
VMOS only supports apk files with the architecture of armeabi-v7a and does not support arm64-v8a files. Even though your real device supports arm64-v8a but not for VMOS. The Play Store in VMOS detects that the VMOS architecture is arm64-v8a. This is what causes us to fail if you download or update Pokemon GO directly from the Play Store. Because the file that the Play Store provided to us is a Pokemon GO file with arm64-v8a architecture.
For this reason, it is strongly recommended to install Pokemon GO from the apk file with the architecture of armeabi-v7a. Here’s how to get a Pokemon GO armeabi-v7a file that is suitable for VMOS:
