Pokémon Go friends – how to get mates

Are you lacking Pokémon Go friends? Let us help!

It’s important to have friends in every aspect of life. Pokémon Go is no different. If your real-life friends have moved onto new games, it can feel like a futile endeavour finding people to exchange gifts with, or trade Pokémon. Our Pokémon Go friends guide will give you handy tips and tricks to help expand your friend list.

There are many ways to find Pokémon Go friends that don’t involve harassing people you know in real life for their friend codes. There are numerous websites where people who need friends have posted their codes in hopes of raising their popularity. The perks of making friends in Pokémon Go include experience gain from raising friendship, gifts filled with goodies, and the potential of becoming lucky friends!

If you are a Pokémon Go master, you should check out our Pokémon Go raids and Pokémon Go event schedules so that you can mark the upcoming dates in your calendar. We also have a comprehensive Pokémon Go shiny guide so you can see if you are lucky enough to encounter them all!
