This tutorial will only work on Chromebooks with an Intel or AMD CPU (with Linux Apps Support) and not those with an ARM64 architecture CPU.

Please take note that the ROMs are copyrighted so you must either own them or find them online by yourself as we or PokeMMO, legally can't give you the links for the ROMs.

As mentioned in the tutorial, to install APKs on a Chromebook, we have to enable the feature, created by Google, but there is a red notice that you might run insecure software (aka APKs) on your login and lock screen which can only be removed with a factory reset.

Please take note that not all APKs works with this method but PokeMMO does.

2) sudo apt install android-tools-adb
3) adb connect
4) adb start-server
