If you're one of the millions of Pokémon Go addicts, you know that waking life carries a new, unrelenting question: what Pokémon are around me right now? The need to keep trying to catch them all has probably soured a few dates since the game launched three weeks ago, but fear not, amorous players: the PokeMatch app has arrived to set you up with the similarly poké-obsessed.

The app is pretty straightforward and prefaces date hunting with the important questions: Are you looking for men, women, both, other or just a friend? Want to meet someone from team Valor, Mystic or those other guys? Then you swipe left or right as is standard for dating apps, and when you match with your poké-destined, lets you designate a PokéStop to meet at.

It is, miraculously, not the first service to match Pokémon Go gamers: ProjectFixup made a special version of its dating service called PokéDates, which ditches the swiping and messaging to let a specialist match compatible folks. PokeMatch is live on iOS and Android, and since it uses photos from your Facebook login, make sure it's loaded with your best trainer pics before you go try to catch 'em all.
