Another Pokémon Go-inspired dating app is up
Last week, Project Fixup, a Chicago-based dating website, launched PokéDates, a dating site inspired by the popular mobile game Pokémon Go. Guess what, another dating app is luring enthusiastic Pokémon Go “trainers” in the US.
Introducing PokéMatch, a dating app for people who want to “catch ’em all” with a “happily ever after.”
Users can simply swipe profiles of fellow players and choose any user. Then, a live chat will pop up on their screens and allow two users to converse until they meet each other in a designated PokéStop nearby.
In an interview with TV news show CBS Los Angeles, the app’s creator boasted that it has 7,500 active users and has created over 10,000 matches.
If users prefer not falling in love, PokéMatch can connect them through friendship.
The app is rolled out and “ready to mingle” on Android and Apple’s App Store. Gianna Francesca Catolico
