How To Use Nox App Player To Play Pokemon Go on PC

Hey guys, we are back with an interesting topic. You might be aware of a game called “POKEMON GO”. Of course yes! Have you played it? If yes then you might know that to catch Pokemon’s you need to walk to certain places & catch them. But being a human, our mood swings sometimes & we feel bored to go out. What if your mood swings but you want to catch Pokemon’s? You would wish to play Pokemon Go sitting in your home. You always think “How to use Nox App To Play Pokemon Go on your PC?”

Today we will discuss “How to play Pokemon Go on PC with Nox App Player” & get an easier way than BlueStacks. Whenever it comes to Android games or app, people usually think about BlueStacks. But we are here with much more easier solution “Nox App Player”. So without wasting time let’s get started.


Before starting the discussion we would like to clearly state that “there’s a chance of ban”. You might get a ban for hours, days, weeks or permanently. This ban occurs because we aren’t playing the game according to the rules. While playing Pokemon Go on Nox Player or any other emulator we might violate few rules. Playing this game on emulator means we aren’t really moving & catching Pokemon’s without efforts. The developers of the game consider this as cheating & hence you might get banned.

I would recommend you to make a new account especially for playing Pokemon Go on PC. However, the ban chance is low but fate & luck factors matter.

About Nox Player:

We all are aware of Pokemon Go’s trending while it just came onto the market. The game was so trending that you might have needed to multiple usernames because of existing usernames. People were finding ways to play Pokemon Go on PC with Nox App Player.

Probably there were 2 types of people finding ways, firstly people who didn’t have compatible mobile phones & secondly people who wanted to play this game without going out. Am I right? Of course yes!

BlueStacks was a great solution to this problem but there were limitations. For playing Pokemon Go on BlueStacks you need to root it. Rooting BlueStacks is really a difficult task & hectic too. While people were facing this problem BigNox came out with a solution. BigNox released “Nox Player”.

Nox Player is also an emulator but offers you additional features. Nox Player can be easily rooted within 2 minutes & GPS location can also be faked. This features made Nox Player the best for Pokemon Go. However, you can play many other games on Nox Player but it has been considered Best For Pokemon Go.

Update: PC Emulators are leading to permanent ban after the latest Safety net update. Follow this guide at your own risk. I would strongly suggest you to follow our Pokemon GO hack for Android or iOS device which are 100% working and have very less ban rate.

Few Major Consoles

Your basic consoles on this App Player for Pokemon Go are W, A, S, D.

  • W for forward
  • A for Left
  • S for Reverse
  • D for Right

Your speed on this player would be an average speed of human while walking & this reduces chances of a ban. If you find that Pokemon is continuously escaping then just restart your Nox Player because there might be server issues or you might be temporarily banned for an hour.


  • It is recommended to not change GPS location from country to country because this might get you banned.
  • If there’s any server issue then you may change location city to city.
  • Turn off your AR while catching Pokemon’s.
  • To increase Performance: Go to Settings > Advanced > Set performance to HIGH > Save Changes > Restart your PC.


According to me, Nox Player is much easier than BlueStacks. We just needed to download 2 files, Nox Player & Pokemon Go APK. We were able to gain root access within 1 minute. Also, we faked a GPS location. Overall the App Player is amazing.

    • You may receive the “failed to log in” or “unable to authenticate” error message if our servers are experiencing a temporary issue.

      If the issue persists, you may close and reopen the Pokémon GO app:

      Android: Touch Settings > Apps > Pokémon GO > Force Sto

  1. This has been proven not to work because you have to root the program and the last safety net, as this guy calls it, that Niantic put up, made it where pokemon go won’t let anyone in if they detect a rooted device. So the fact that you have to root yourself is an automatic fail, which is why you always get failed to authenticate.
    I don’t think Noxis gonna work anymore until they update it again to get around this.

  2. hey, we just installed nox player on two different laptops two weeks ago. We both used different accounts. It works fine even without root mode on nox player (just installed nox player without any settings change, then downloaded pokemon apk from the playstore. we installed android4) … well … worked about one week. It stopped working around November 10, 2018 at 11:00pm CET. At exact the same time we both geht “failed to authenticate” on all devices (Laptop).
    I guess Niantic changed something around this date …
