Short story: I have a Nokia Lumia 630 with Windows Phone 8.1, ergo I can't play Pokémon Go, even if I would really like to. I waited a few months hoping that Niantic would make a Windows Phone version eventually, but at this point I'm more than convinced that they aren't going to, so I'm starting to look for other options. It turns out that there are at least two Android emulators for the PC: Bluestreaks and Nox, with the latter of them which is apparently tailored for the specific task of emulating Pokémon Go. I tried both of them, following guides and tutorials I found on the internet, but I can't get Pokémon Go to work, it either refuses to log me in, or it recognizes that I'm using an unsupported device, or whatever, I just can't do it. More research on Google seems to indicate that it's currently impossible to emulate Pokémon Go, once again I probably waited too long before trying.
Those emulators are also terribly slow, then again I tried them on my laptop and I guess that my other computer would perform better should I retry it, so this isn't a problem.
So, to get to the point, does anyone know how I can successfully emulate the current version (and future versions) of Pokémon Go? I know nothing about Android and I would be lost if I had to alter the apk.
Please give me precise directions on what to do, which emulator to download, how to configure it, if I have to alter the apk or install other apps, everything.
I know it's technically considered cheating but I'd really like to play that game.
