The Friend Referral system which launched in Australia a while ago has now been rolled out to all Pokémon GO players from all over the world (or soon will be). Trainers can invite their friends to join the game for the first time, or return after a long absence with bonuses offered if they achieve certain goals. But how does it all work? Here's how to refer friends in Pokémon GO.



How to refer friends

To refer friends to Pokémon GO, simply follow these steps.

  • Open the Friends menu
  • Tap Invite
  • Copy your referral code
  • Give this code to a friend or share it online
  • They must enter this code when creating or reactivating their account
  • Make sure to add the player to your friends list
    • Give them your friend code from the Friends menu or use theirs to add them
  • Check their player page in your friends list to see bonuses and rewards progress

So, in short, you just want to give them your referral code, which they'll enter when creating their account, and then make sure you're friends in Pokémon GO and good to go. It's now just a waiting game for them to complete certain tasks that will give you and them different rewards.

How to Get Friend Referral Rewards and Bonuses

Once they join the game with your Pokémon GO referral code and you add them as a friend, you are now linked. As they progress on different tasks, they can access the corresponding profile pages to redeem rewards for the tasks.
