How to make three friends in Pokemon GO is all about Friend Fest and the Jump-Start Research in Pokemon GO. Niantic Labs launched a new research program by Professor Willow to help new players or returning players who feel like they've fallen behind.

It teaches players new systems in the game like the friendship system and rewards them when completing tasks. On top of that, Niantic started a Friend Fest until Dec. 2 at 4 p.m. ET.

How to Make Three Friends in Pokemon GO

The Friend List is accessible from the trainer profile. Click on your avatar in the lower left-hand corner of the screen to open up the profile. From there, you can swipe over to the Friends menu, where you’ll see a prompt to add a friend. You'll either be able to enter in a trainer code or you can grab yours and send it to a friend.

To kill two birds with one stone, make at least three friends by entering in three trainer codes or getting three people to add you. Then you can complete the Jump-Start Research as well as complete the new Friend Fest weekly Research Task.

If you end up battling and winning against a trainer, you'll receive an encounter against a Dugtrio or Dodrio. And they could be shiny!
