Datamining Report: Referral System texts have been pushed!

Hello Trainers! A bundle of text updates for the referral system that was previously announced by Niantic has been pushed.  The texts explain a lot of how the system appears to work, so let’s have a look!


A new badge

RESOURCE ID: badge_trainers_referred 
TEXT: Refer {0} Trainers 

RESOURCE ID: badge_trainers_referred_singular 
TEXT: Refer a Trainer 

RESOURCE ID: badge_trainers_referred_title 
TEXT: Friend Finder

A new badge has been added, and it’s for referring friends.  No hints at how many you’ll need to invite to get the badge levels though.

The old recruiter badge in Ingress was 2, 10, 25, and 50 to get through the levels.  (Ingress has an Onyx level that was 100)


Adding Friends

RESOURCE ID: referral_invite_title 
TEXT: Invite to Pokémon GO 

RESOURCE ID: referral_invite_subtitle 
TEXT: Invite Your Friends to Pokémon GO and Earn Rewards 

RESOURCE ID: add_niantic_friend_tip 
TEXT: If you add this friend in this game, you’ll add them as a friend in all Niantic games you both play. 

RESOURCE ID: add_referrer_already_added_accept_invite 
TEXT: You have a pending Friend Request from this Trainer. Confirm your friendship to continue receiving referral rewards. You may enter another referral code, if you wish. 

RESOURCE ID: add_referrer_already_added_already_friends 
TEXT: You’re already friends in Pokémon GO, so you’ll continue receiving referral rewards. You may enter another referral code, if you wish. 

RESOURCE ID: add_referrer_already_added_friend_later 
TEXT: You must become friends in Pokémon GO to continue receiving referral rewards. You may enter another referral code, if you wish. 

RESOURCE ID: add_referrer_already_added_maybe_friend_later 
TEXT: If you aren’t already friends in Pokémon GO, you must become friends to continue receiving referral rewards. You may enter another referral code, if you wish. 

RESOURCE ID: add_referrer_already_added_sent_invite 
TEXT: A Friend Request has been sent. Once your friendship is confirmed, you’ll be able to earn referral rewards as you continue your journey. You may enter another referral code, if you wish. 

RESOURCE ID: add_referrer_success_accept_invite 
TEXT: This person has already sent you a Friend Request. Once you confirm your friendship, you’ll be able to earn referral rewards as you progress on your journey. 

RESOURCE ID: add_referrer_success_already_friends 
TEXT: You’re already friends with this person in Pokémon GO, so you’ll be able to earn referral rewards as you progress on your journey. 

RESOURCE ID: add_referrer_success_friend_later 
TEXT: Remember to become friends in Pokémon GO later to receive more referral rewards. 

RESOURCE ID: add_referrer_success_invite_will_be_sent_later 
TEXT: A Friend Request will be sent. Once your friendship is confirmed, you'll be able to earn referral rewards. 

RESOURCE ID: add_referrer_success_maybe_friend_later

RESOURCE ID: add_referrer_success_sent_invite 
TEXT: A Friend Request has been sent. Once your friendship is confirmed, you’ll be able to earn referral rewards as you continue your journey.

It appears the game does a check when you enter a referral code to check to see if you’re friends in Pokémon Go already.  If you aren’t it offers you a chance to enter another code.
