Pokemon Go to help users find their soulmates soon
Pokemon Go has been out for less than a month, yet the madness and obsession around it keeps intensifying. A number of unusual reports about the mobile game have made headlines recently, including one about two different Pokemon dating services, which are set to take both the gaming and dating worlds by storm.

The first one is called Pokematch, an app which appears to be heavily inspired by Tinder. Like Tinder, users are shown other people on Pokematch, who they can “catch” by swiping right. If both users swipe right for one another, they are put in conversation and from there they can arrange a meetup at a nearby Pokestop. Basically, it’s Tinder but only for Pokemon players.

The app was created by San Francisco entrepreneurs Pim de Witte and Rene Roosen. They say they were inspired to make it when Rene wanted to go on a date while hunting for Pokemon.

“The goal is that people to create meaningful dates, not just hook-ups,” Roosen said in a press release. “We think that a Pokemon Go date is the perfect opportunity for that.”

Pokematch is currently available on Android devices. It will be available on iOS soon, pending Apple’s approval.

The second dating service inspired by Pokemon Go is Pokédates. This one is similar to Pokematch, but in addition to matching the two players together, Pokedates also provides them with the most convenient nearby Pokestops and the best time for the date based on the users’ availability.

Plus, the service has users answer some questions, similar to dating websites like OkCupid, so that they can be matched with like-minded players, according to the Business Insider.

Here is the catch, though: Pokedates will cost you $20 for every date. The first date, however, is free if you use the promo code POKEDATES2016.

Pokedates has not yet officially launched but is expected to go online soon.
