It didn't take people too long to hop on the Pokemon Go bandwagon- they've now released this new online dating app called PokeDates, designed to help single Pokemon Go players meet up with other single Pokemon Go players and catch those elusive little animated creatures together, as well as swap Pokemon stories, track down Diglets and even battle against one another.
The dating service gets players to meet up at a prearranged PokeStops or PokeGyms. From there they go out and explore the city together. The service, which costs $20 (roughly £15), will select a match for you, find a time that’s best to meet up and track down the nearest and most convenient PokeStop or PokeGym to meet at.
All you have to do is answer a few questions so the matchmaking team can find a suitor who shares similar interests. Once the date has been arranged, both parties will receive information about their PokeMatch. The service, created by dating company Project Fixup, is only currently available in the US, but high demand may lead to it being extended to every country where the Pokemon Go app is available.
“As soon as Pokemon Go launched, we knew it was a perfect fit for our users; Pokemon Go enthusiasts and new members alike,” said Sarah Press, Project Fixup CEO and co-founder. “Pokemon Go has taken the world by storm and it’s more fun to play with a companion. We hope PokeDates will bring singles together to experience the joy of the game and explore their city while getting to know one another.”
So, what do you think about all of this? Would any of you be interested in the PokeDates app? And how would you feel about being asked out to go on a PokeDate?

Figures they would take the idea and make some dating service out of it. I personally wouldn't use it seeing as I have no need to.0
