Having friends in Pokemon GO is an essential part of the experience.
Every trainer deserves a group of good friends to accompany them on their Pokemon journey. Even our main series protagonists always have a good group, becoming a trio or more, to help them through their quests and discoveries. Therefore, it only stands to reason that the friend limit in Niantic Labs' AR mobile game, Pokemon GO, would cast a wide net. More friends means more opportunities to succeed, after all.
Below you'll find just how many friends you can have in Pokemon GO.
How Many Friends Can You Have on Pokemon GO
According to Niantic's support website, any individual Pokemon GO player can have up to 200 friends per account.
Fortunately, this limit gives enough room for a steady supply of gifts and items like PokeBalls, potions, revives, and fun stickers to collect and trade. Not only that, but the more friends made all over the world also means more chances for raid invites outside your usual sphere. In fact, having friends in other countries can also be a one-way ticket to other regional exclusives you might not have been able to acquire otherwise.
Trainers have mostly taken to social media sites such as Twitter and Reddit to swap trainer codes.
