Pokémon GO Referral Program is Live!

Trainers! The previously announced Pokémon GO Referral Program is now live worldwide! The input from the Australian testing has been gathered, and refinements have been made. The program is now available to everyone!

As previously mentioned, you and your referred friends, whether they are returning from an extended break or new to the game altogether, will receive rewards such as Pokémon encounters, Rare Candy, Incubators, and more as they hit milestones on their adventure after re-joining or joining with your referral code.

Let’s take a closer look at how it all works!

How to refer a friend

  1. Go to the Friends screen and tap Invite to get your referral code.
  2. Share that code with a friend who’s new to Pokémon GO or who hasn’t played in at least 90 days.
  3. Once they input your referral code—either during the sign-up process or later on the Friends screen—you’ll both begin receiving rewards.
  4. As your friend reaches milestones on their journey, you’ll both receive more rewards. Make sure to help them out along the way!


We here at G2G feel like this is a fantastic way to continue to grow the Pokémon Community. Bringing in new Trainers and bringing back Trainers who used to play is an integral part of keeping the community thriving. Everyone knows someone who dabbled in Pokémon GO for a bit then, for one reason or another, just stopped playing; this is a great way to reach out to them and get them to give it another shot. 

Remember always to obey your local health and safety mandates and stay socially distanced! Stay safe, Fam!
