How to Get Friends In Pokemon GO
Pokemon GO is all about catching Pokemon, taking over gyms, attempting to evolve your caught Pokemon, and then sort of doing that over and over again, but Niantic added a little feature earlier this year that made the whole process a bit more fun – the ability to add friends to the game. By adding a friend in Pokemon GO, you’re able to trade Pokemon with them, send over some neat gifts, check out their recent activities, and admire their attire and partner Pokemon. Since the ability to add friends is still fairly new, you might be wondering how to exactly do it, so here’s how to get friends in Pokemon GO.
First, from the main map screen in the game, you want to click on your trainer profile/icon in the bottom left corner of the screen. From then, you’re going to want to click on the tab that says ‘friends’ on the top right and from there, you can add anybody to your friend’s list by either inputting their friend code or taking a quick pic of their trainer QR code. Once both trainers accept one another, you’ll be friends and will be able to participate in trades and send over presents that will help out on your friend’s journey.
Being able to trade with others will be monumental in helping you to achieve the goal of completing your Pokedex and having the chance to trade with people who have visited other countries will be essential in order to get those region-exclusive pocket monsters.
That’s all you need to know about making and adding friends in Pokemon GO! For all of your Pokemon GO needs, make sure to check our ever-growing wiki guide on the mobile game right here –we got you covered.
