Pokemon GO Fever Hits Desperate Lovebirds With PokeDates Dating Service
Ahh, summer love. Classic dates include picnics in the park, drive-in theaters, and...catching Pokémon? Pokémon trainers can catch Pikachu’s and dates with the online service PokéDates. Now you can Likitung with other trainers.
Dating site Project Fixup launched a new service on Wednesday that specifically targets all single Pokémon GO fans. CEO Sarah Press remarked, “As Soon as Pokémon GO launched, we knew it was a perfect fit for our users; Pokémon Go enthusiasts and new members alike.”
Lonely Ash’s and Misty’s who signup for the dating site will be matched based on a questionnaire and their mutual desire to catch Pokémon. Couples will be matched regardless of their chosen faction - Team Instinct, Mystic, or Valor. Project Fixup specialists will review questionnaires and schedules in order to make a match. Once a couple has been matched, they'll be sent an email to confirm the date and Pokémon hunt. Unfortunately if you do not like your date, you cannot transfer them to Professor Willow.
If you are looking for your Nidorino to your Nidorina you can go to GoPokéDates.com. Project Fixup is offering first dates for free with the promo code "POKEDATES2016," but after that will be $20 per date. Members can earn more free dates by referring friends.
Unlike Tinder, Pokémon trainers of all ages are welcome to signup. It is important to note that the website is mostly based in Chicago, San Francisco, Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill. If you are not in one of those areas you might have an easier time catching a Charizard than a date.
If you are interested, just make sure your date is not August 1st, or you might have to go out on a typical date instead of catching Pokémon.
