Pokémon GO Is Setting Up Gay Trainers on PokéDates

Pokémon GO Is Setting Gay Trainers on PokéDates

Pokémon GO took the world by storm, and almost instantly became the most popular mobile game on the planet. The premise is simple; using your phone’s location to find hidden creatures called Pokémon, the game transforms gaymers into real-world Pokémon masters.

Needless to say, Pokémon GO has united people in unexpected and beautiful ways but now, it’s about to help single queer men find their match.

Project Fixup, a dating website focused on one-on-one meetups, created PokéDates to help us all find our special man who enjoys hunting for Pokémon in the middle of the night.

Here’s how it works: Members fill out a questionnaire to filter preferences. Then, PokéDates matches them with a partner based on their availability and responses. From there, it will select a convenient PokéGym or PokéStop to meet specifically to hunt together. In other words, it sets you up on a PokéDate.

Upon setting up your profile, the app apparently gives you options to search for specific sexualities — so it’s not only LGBTQ people. We’re going to have to share it with the rest of the world too — but hey, Pokémon GO is clearly for everyone.

A PokéDate seems like the perfect icebreaker to get to know someone. What do you think?
