Ninja wants to add friends in Pokemon GO

Pokemon Go released back in 2016 and was immensely successful back then. The game was a different take on the highly popular franchise and was hyped around for months. The game uses mobile GPS to locate, capture, and battle Pokemon and Pokemon trainers.

Over the years, the game has had many changes and overhauls. The monthly challenges are something that most players look forward to and this time around, you could have Ninja alongside; in the game that is.

Ninja wants friends for Pokemon Go Field Research completion. Wondering what prompted him to ask for the same? The August field Research tasks.
