Pokémon GO Party Play is coming!

Pokémon GO’s latest feature is called Party Play and it is rolling out globally on October 17th 2023! A brand new feature that brings you and your Community together, with a new mode of play called ‘Party Play’.

Party Everywhere You GO with Party Play! General icon

Ready for a new way to play Pokémon GO with your friends? Party Play has got you covered. With Party Play, Trainers can play and complete challenges together—all in one shared in-game experience.

Party Play lets four total Trainers—level 15 and above—adventure as a party together. You’ll even get to see your friends’ avatars on your in-game map. Whether you’re looking to represent your team, take on new challenges, or capture memories while catching Pokémon, Party Play makes it possible.

You’ll be able to work together in Party Play to complete Party Challenges together, gain access to Party Play Power to help you defeat raids with new boosted power, share your success with activity summaries and experience a whole new way to play with your friends and fellow trainers.
