How To Play Pokemon GO:

Well, when you want to move, select the fake GPS app from the notification bar and select your location and hit play. Your character will move.

Some Problems You Might Face:

You might see GPS signal not found error.
Be sure to turn off both locations in your windows. If you are using Windows 10, go to settings and turn off the 1st and 2nd option.

Pokemon GO

Double check if you have turned off Google location and turned on High accuracy. If you still face any problem connecting to the GPS, select device only ( It worked for me ).

Still Getting Failed Location ? 

A solution by Travis D:

I found a way to fix "Failed to detect location".
First of all, download developer menu apk file (
after installing it, open it, and turn it OFF! (Everything is unchecked, but who cares, just turn it OFF from top right) 

Some other solutions by Travis D 

1: Please try removing your google account by going into settings => clicking google =>  hitting top right dots and remove account, re open Pokémon GO , it should still log you in without any problem. (Credits:zen)
2. Reinstall Bluestacks if above didn't work.

Please download correct versions of the softwares that matches your OS.

Here is My Game Play Screenshot by following this Tutorial.

If you absolutely want to catch 'em all but prefer video over text, you can watch Travis D's Tutorial :

It's not that complex as it sounds. It took me about 15 minutes to set this up. Although you can do almost everything, it's not how the game was meant to be played. You have to minimize the game and reload the Fake GPS App every time you want to move, select the location, hit play and the character will start walking. Playing Pokémon GO while walking outside is the main attraction that made this game so interesting.

Conclusion : Don't jump around too fast or else the game might ban you temporarily! Although this is a fun way to play the Game, it is against the TOS of Pokémon GO. So play this at  your own risk!

Pokémon GO is a crazy game. However, play with safety and don't act like this guy!
