There are lots of different Pokemon games that have been released over the years. If you are a Pokemon super-fan like me, you probably know about most, if not all, of them. You will also know that there are quite a few different consoles that you can play the various Pokemon games on.
Some of the more popular consoles that have had the pleasure of Pokemon games releases are:
Playing Pokemon on Windows OS
As you will see from the list above, Windows is a platform that Nintendo have released Pokemon games on. For example, Pokemon Play It! was released for Windows back in 1999. Pokemon TCG Online was also available on Windows platforms.
However, the majority of Pokemon games come out on other consoles - primarily consoles developed by Nintendo. And so, its generally not possible to play many Pokemon games on Windows 10. That is, officially speaking.
Using an Emulator to Play Pokemon
You want the unofficial method right? Well, the unofficial method of playing Pokemon on Windows 10 is to use a ROM Emulator. A ROM emulator is basically a piece of software that runs on a Windows PC and will act like a console. By doing this, the emulator will accept ROMS (Copies of console games) and play them as if they were being played on their intended console.
With this emulator installed on your computer, you just have to search online for the ROM of whatever Pokemon game you want to play, load it into the emulator and bingo; you have the ability to play Pokemon on your Windows 10 computer.
Playing modified games with your ROM emulator
It gets even better because with this unofficial method of playing Pokemon games you can access modified games and other cool things that are not available on any official release platforms.
Pokemon Jupiter is a great example (what is Pokemon Jupiter?) of a Pokemon game that you simply cannot play on any platform other than windows, and via a ROM emulator. So now the tables have turned - instead of needing a Nintendo console to play Pokemon, you need a Windows PC.
Expanding your Pokemon reach
You can hopefully see how its very beneficial having the ability to play Pokemon on Windows 10 - for one thing it might save you money, especially if you already have a Windows computer but you don't have a Nintendo console.
It also allows you to play versions of Pokemon that are not available on any other device.
Lastly, it allows you to expand your reach when it comes to playing Pokemon games. If you are a hard-core fan like me and you like to have every Pokemon game as well as every console that a Pokemon game has been released on, then you simply have to have Pokemon on Windows 10 as well; otherwise the collection would be incomplete.
