Or are another android game storefront. Softonic is a good choice in the first option. And QooApp is the next go-to for other players for Android Storefronts.\r\n\r\nNot only can you do this on Android phones, but you can also play this on PC as well through the use of Emulators such as Bluestacks and Nox.

If you want to download without getting the OBB, you can do so on QooApp for an easier time.\r\n\r\n \r\nSearch for Pok\u00e9mon Masters\r\nLike on Google Play Store, searching using the search bar is better. Way easier compared to manually finding the game itself. Just type Pokemon Masters APK and it\u2019ll just give you a list of relevant games after the search is finished.\r\n\r\n \r\nClick Download Pokemon Masters APK\r\nYou would then have to click the download APK button after the page is loaded. This would result in you being taken to another page. The loading page per se.\r\n\r\n \r\nClick Start Download\r\nThe download would begin after clicking the start download button indicated. Usually, the APK doesn\u2019t have that much in terms of memory. Do note that this would only download the APK and not the files necessary to play the game. You\u2019ll have to download it in-game.\r\n\r\n \r\nDownloading the APK installer for Pok\u00e9mon Masters\r\nThe main reason as to why you would wish to download the APK installer is for convenience. It\u2019s easier on your end if you have the APK ready just in case. Instead of waiting for a few minutes for the download on Play Store to finish. Not only that, but even if the APK\u2019s version is outdated, the game will still have the ability to automatically update on startup. Which is a huge plus on downloading APK installers.\r\n\r\nHow to Download Pok\u00e9mon Masters on Play Store and App Store\r\nOne can usually download Pok\u00e9mon Masters on Google Play Store and Apple App Store. It\u2019s a free-to-play game with in-app purchases. So you can play the entirety of the game without paying a single cent. But first, here\u2019s how you can download Pok\u00e9mon Masters on Play Store:\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\nGo to Google Play Store or App Store\r\nThe official way to download the game is to do so on Google Play Store. Simple enough to do.\r\n\r\n \r\nSearch Pok\u00e9mon Masters\r\nIt\u2019s easier to search for the game on the search bar instead of manually looking for the game itself. Click the Pok\u00e9mon Masters link to send you to its page on Google Play.\r\n\r\n \r\nDownload Pok\u00e9mon Masters\r\nAfter searching for the game, click the download button. Simple as that.\r\n\r\n \r\nCan you download and install mods for Pok\u00e9mon Masters?\r\nUnfortunately, there is currently no way to install mods for Pok\u00e9mon Masters by yourself. This is because it\u2019s incredibly difficult to create mods for it as it\u2019s a server-based gacha game. These games usually have their game data stored on outbound servers. So most of the usual modding techniques aren\u2019t possible. CLEO for example, has no possible entryway to this.\r\n\r\nFor example, let\u2019s look at one of the top gacha games today: Fate\/Grand Order. The data for your account is not stored on your phone. It\u2019s stored on their servers in Japan or the US. (Depends on which Server you\u2019re playing, JP or US. There are also other servers like CN(China) and RN(Korea)). Now usually, the mods would tinker with the files inside the place you\u2019re playing. This time your android smartphone. And they manipulate the numerical values inside. From currency, attack and defense values of characters, god mode, et cetera.\r\n\r\nThis kind of manipulation isn\u2019t possible if the data\u2019s on outbound servers. As it\u2019s protected with different firewalls and protections compared to your smartphone. This is to prevent the modification of various player accounts to add unfair advantages. In FGO there isn\u2019t that much of a problem as there\u2019s no PvP aspect to the gameplay. But what this kind of thing happens to a game where there IS PvP?\r\n\r\nAn example of a game like this with PvP would be Fire Emblem Heroes. There are 2 kinds of PvP modes in-game. The Weekly Arenas and the Weekly Aether Raids. All characters that you have in your roster are usable on those game modes. Add the ability to artificially boost your unit\u2019s stats through mods and cheats? Well, that\u2019s not fair to the other player now, is it?\r\n\r\n \r\nAnti-Mod Sanctions in Games\r\nThis is why those games have tough protections against these kinds of things. And if somehow, someway you manage to do it? Well, there\u2019s only one option: Account Ban. In effect, you won\u2019t be able to play the account anymore. Especially if you\u2019re caught using 3rd party software to boost your account somehow. Azur Lane (another server-based gacha game by Yostar) is particularly infamous for posting a Wall of Shame of those who were caught hacking their game.\r\n\r\nAnd it\u2019s regularly updated every time there\u2019s a new event being released. So if you\u2019re playing that game while cheating and the devs caught you red-handed? Well, tough luck. Your account name shall be plastered for all to see.
