Go On PokéDates
“Project Fixup” (an existing company founded in 2012) has started their newest venture – a dating service focused around Pokémon Go.
Pokémon Go has already done a remarkable job of getting people off of their couches and often even talking to each other – it’s only natural that someone would want to take such a large phenomenon and take it one step further. “Project Fixup” advertises that its matchmaking is done by real humans not just a computer algorithm, and this is far from their first “themed dating” service.
If you really want to, you can visit their website here. Good luck to all those adventurous enough to try!

It works as you’d expect. You sign up on PokéDates’ website, answer a few questions about what you’re looking for in a partner, and then fill in a schedule of when you’re free to go roaming for pokémon. PokéDates then pairs up applicants, and sends both parties a time and location (near a pokéstop or gym) to meet up and start playing Pokémon Go.
In the past, the company has organized themed dates such as bike rides and wine tasting sessions, and says that finding common ground via a video game is hardly a stretch. There’s no cost to sign up and users’ first PokéDate is free (with promo code “POKEDATES2016”). However, all meetings after that will cost $20, which is pretty steep.
