Last week, we told you that a developer was working on Pokemon Go game for Windows 10 Mobile. And, now the app is ready for lakhs of those Windows 10 users who were seeking some petition help before. Well, not exactly, but this third party can give all those users a sigh of relief. There is no sign as of now when will the Pokemon Go game will land to Windows 10 users, nor the creators of the game have given any sign of its arrival.
At the time of making, the developer was also skeptical of completing the development of this app as he had a lot to do in the task. But, in less than one week, the developer ST-apps has released the Pokemon Go game for the Windows users, but it is in beta. The name of the game is PoGo UWP and don't expect the same AR and 3D visuals from this game. The game is a Universal Windows Platform Client for Niantic's Pokemon Go and the developer says -
"The ability to play in the same game-world as your friends that are playing with an Android or iOS device."
The developer also says that you still need to open a Pokemon Trainer Club account, and you still need to open the iOS/Android game to select your starter Pokemon. You will find two different methods of installing the game, one for beginners and one for experts. It's better to start the beginner mode if you're not a developer.
As this is the third-party app, then Niantic has rights to put it to an end. The owner of the original game can cease and desist letter or pull access to the API. Also, the game is in beta, so expect some glitches to come your way.
