Playing with friends can only enhance your experience in Pokemon Go, especially if you want to trade Pokemon with others, and we’ve got some active friend codes you can use to add new friends to the game. 

Most features in Pokemon Go can be experienced solo, but the more challenging aspects of the game may require a group of friends to help you. This is particularly true for Raid Battles and facing Legendary creatures.

There are also subreddits for specific activities, such as r/PokemonGoRaids which allows you to find Friend Codes specifically for Raids. Be aware that Trainers will often remove you once a Raid is over. It’s not personal!

Always use caution when adding Friends in Pokemon Go. Make sure you don’t have any personal information in your username or profile and avoid sharing Gifts with people you don’t know.
