It Was Only A Matter Of Time Until Someone Combined Pokémon Go And Grindr

"Catch ’em all, together!"

From the moment it was released, Pokémon Go was compared to the hookup app Grindr — both use your phone’s location to find something you want to catch nearby.

So now, Project Fixup, an offline dating website focused on in-person meetings, has created PokéDates in order to help you find the special someone that you may just want to spend the rest of your life hunting Pokémon with.

Members fill out a questionnaire on their preferences and then PokéDates matches you with a partner based on your availability and answers.

It selects a convenient PokéGym or PokéStop to meet your date and then the hunting begins.


It’s not from the actual makers of Grindr, so you have to share with straight people too, with options to search as a gay or bisexual person available upon setup.

Happy hunting!
