How to Install and Play PokeMMO: System Requirements

Before we go to the steps on how to install and play PokeMMO, you might want to know the system requirements for this game.

There isn’t a clear and specific system requirement, but the best answer we can come up with is that if you have devices made around 2018 and beyond, the game will run.

The very first version of PokeMMO was released around 2012. Devices back then weren’t as powerful as they are now.

Despite the numerous updates and changes, any mobile device (Android or iOS) made around 2018 will be able to run the game.

For PC, that’s not an issue since Pokemon games, and this one, Pokemon don’t require a lot of processing power.
