When you become friends with someone in Pokemon Go, you open entirely new areas of the game that let you make significant progress by increasing your level, increasing your raid power, and trading for better Pokemon.
But there is a maximum number of friends that you can have in Pokemon Go, and people with whom you are friends can see some information about your play habits. If you discover over time that you no longer wish to be friends with someone in Pokemon Go, it’s possible to remove them as a friend in the game. Our tutorial below will show you how to delete a Pokemon Go friend if you no longer wish to interact with that person in this manner in the game.
