There's Now a Dating Service for Pokémon Go Players

Jul 20, 2016

For those who are more adept at catching Squirtles than they are significant others, there's now an online dating service able to match potential mates over their shared love Pokémon Go.

The website, appropriately called PokéDates, launched Wednesday. It prompts its users to answer a few questions and provide times when they might be available for date (or just a Pokémon battle), and quickly gets to work to match users with someone they might like — emailing both parties with a convenient time and meeting location.

If the users both agree to the date, the user is charged $20, though there are no subscription fees. The first PokéDate is free.

The website for PokéDates, which is run by dating startup Project Fixup, says that augmented reality game is "arguably the best idea of the 21st century" and hopes that users "catch 'em all together." The game was launched earlier this July.
