The friend component that was added to Pokemon Go is a terrific addition to the game. It lets you trade with friends, send and receive gifts, and even gives a boost for raids and gym battles once you reach advanced friendship levels.
But before you can begin to take advantage of these features, you need to get your friend code, or trainer code, so that you can give it to people. Our tutorial below will show you where to find and copy this information so that you can share it with someone with whom you wish to be friends in Pokemon Go.
How to Find and Copy Your Friend Code in Pokemon Go
The steps in this article were performed on an iPhone 7 Plus in iOS 11.3.2. I am using the most current version of Pokemon Go available at the time this article was written.
Step 1: Open Pokemon Go.
Step 2: Touch your trainer icon at the bottom-left corner of the screen.
Step 3: Touch the Friends tab at the top of the screen.
Step 4: Tap the Add Friend button.
Your trainer code is shown in the box at the bottom of the screen. It is a sequence of 12 numbers. If you select the Copy My Trainer Code button, it will automatically be copied to your clipboard so that you can paste it into a text message or other method of communication. Or you can tap the Share My Trainer Code button and select the app through which you wish to share this information.
