Niantic has announced that the Pokémon GO referral program is now active worldwide. Players can now invite friends to play Pokémon GO and get some rewards!

Journeys are always better with friends—the Pokémon GO referral program is here!

Trainers, The Pokémon GO referral program is now active worldwide! We’d like to thank our Trainers in Australia for helping us test and refine this feature. Your participation and input have helped us prepare this feature for launch.

Every journey is better with friends. So why not invite some of your friends to join yours? Whether it’s your friend’s first time playing or they’re returning after a break, they’ll receive rewards like Pokémon encounters, Rare Candy, Incubators, and more as they hit milestones on their adventure—and so will you! With the Season of Legends still ongoing, it’s the perfect time to invite your friends to join your journey.

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!
Remember what it was like when you first started your Pokémon GO adventure? Were there other Trainers in your life that helped you on your way to becoming the best you can be? We hope the referral program will encourage you to reach out and lend a helpful hand to your friends as well. We’re all here to enjoy Pokémon GO together, and this is the perfect opportunity to welcome (or welcome back) Trainers to our community. Let’s GO on this journey—together!

Please be aware of your surroundings and follow guidelines from local health authorities when playing Pokémon GO. Upcoming events are subject to change.

Niantic has announced the April Fool event which takes place on Thursday, April 1st, 2021, from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. local time.

BREAKING: Pokémon mischief is on the rise, and Team GO Rocket has an Aipom problem

Trainers, The Tricky Pokémon event is back, and mischievous Pokémon seem to be causing more trouble than usual! Throughout Thursday, April 1, 2021, Pokémon prone to mischief will be appearing more often in the wild—some of them may even be Ditto in disguise! Some of them appear to be causing trouble for Team GO Rocket, too, so it’s the perfect time to complete Team GO Rocket Timed Research and rescue Shadow Zapdos from Giovanni’s clutches!

Date + Time
Thursday, April 1, 2021, from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. local time

Features
  • Pokémon prone to mischief—like Aipom, Croagunk, and Purrloin—will be appearing more often in the wild!
  • Sources tell us that Team GO Rocket Grunts will only have Shadow Aipom on their teams during the event. They thought catching Aipom would put a stop to their pranks—but how wrong they were!
  • Team GO Rocket will be appearing more often at PokéStops and in balloons.
  • The Team GO Rocket Timed Research launching during this event will be available from Thursday, April 1, 2021, at 12:00 a.m. to Thursday, April 8, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. local time. Complete it within that time to earn a Super Rocket Radar and other rewards!
  • The switch timer in the GO Battle League will be cut in half! Could this be more Pokémon mischief at work?
  • Take a few snapshots for a surprise!
  • Ditto will be appearing more frequently in the wild during the event, so be sure to catch Pokémon that Ditto are known to transform into! We’ve also received reports of Ditto transforming into one more Pokémon species than before, and it seems this phenomenon will continue after the event concludes.
