Referral systems are a fairly common staple of online and mobile games. When you have a newfound gaming addiction, it’s pretty normal to want to share it around with your friends so you can all talk about it. The notion is even more appealing when you get in-game rewards for sharing it around. Well, guess what Pokémon GO has now? Here are the Pokémon GO referral system rewards.
Okay, so first of all, not everyone can do this yet. Niantic wants to test the referral system out a bit before they let it loose on the whole world, so for the moment, only Pokémon GO players in Australia can access it. If you happen to live in Australia, then you can send your unique referral code to anyone who doesn’t already have an account, or someone who does but hasn’t played the game in at least 90 days. If someone signs up for the game using your referral code, the two of you become linked. Whenever the referred user completes specific tasks, both you and they will receive rewards such as items or specific Pokémon encounters.
