For all those lonely Pokémon Go players and trainers out there, there's now an app to ensure you never have to go on a Pokéwalk all alone ever again...

That's right, PokéDates - the first Pokémon Go inspired dating app - is at hand to find a “Pokematch” for you.

The app, created by Chicago company Project Fixup, matches compatible Pokémon Go fans so there aren’t any awkward silences and the dates have something to talk about apart from Pokémon.

All Pokémon Go players have to do is fill in a questionnaire, including things like what they look for in a potential “Pokémate”.

They’ll also have to provide a few other details as well, such as where they live and when they're are free. From there on, the app will try to find a Pokémon partner perfect for them.

The first PokéDate is be free, but after that any romantic Pokémon adventures will cost US$20 per date.

However, there is a chance to earn free dates from referrals.

The creators of the app say the idea came about because they didn’t want people to find love just by sitting at a computer or swiping on their phone.

“At Project Fixup, we believe that dating should be about getting out there, meeting new people, and enjoying the world around,” the company states.

“Project Fixup is about OFFline dating, and saving you the hours of time you would spend online to end up with the same date.”

So for all lovelorn and lonely Pokémon fans, there might just be a perfect Pikachu fan out there.
