The main concept of Pokemon GO is going out into the outside world and catching Pokemon. This often involves running into strangers, which might turn into friends – so the next logical step is using the game to find lovers. Enter PokeDates.
PokeDates is backed by Project Fixup, a dating site that separates itself from popular apps like Tinder or Happn because it employs actual people to look at profiles and match them up with similar ones, instead of using algorithms. Of course, unlike algorithms, humans have to be paid, so it isn’t free – the first date is, but after that, each date will cost $20.
All users have to do is go into the PokeDates website, answer some questions and say which time of the day they’re available to go on a date. The service takes care of the rest.
