Lucky Friends and Avatar Poses Arrive in Pokémon GO

Deepen your bond with other Trainers in Pokémon GO with the new Lucky Friends and avatar poses features.

Read on to see what's new in Pokémon GO starting in early April.


Lucky Friends

Grow even closer to your Best Friends in Pokémon GO with the new Lucky Friends feature. Once a day, when you interact with a Best Friend by battling, trading, opening a Gift, or teaming up in a Gym or Raid Battle, you have the chance to become Lucky Friends. Then, the next time you trade with each other, both Pokémon will definitely be Lucky Pokémon—coveted for their great stats and lower Stardust requirements for leveling up. Trade a Pokémon you want to make battle-ready so you and your friend can both be better prepared for big battles to come!

Once you've completed the trade, you'll return to being Best Friends again. Try again the next day for another chance to become Lucky Friends.


Avatar Poses

Celebrate your victories in style with the new avatar poses feature. Once you get a custom avatar pose, your character will strike it on your Trainer profile, Friend List, in the raid lobby, in Gyms, and in battle previews. Each acquired avatar pose will be available for both male and female Trainer avatars. Two avatar poses are available right away in the Style Shop, with many more on the way.





Partner up and show your stuff in Pokémon GO with these exciting new features today.
