Changing Trainer nickname affects some of the Friendship Level bonuses

In the Works
Last Updated: 06/21/2018


We’re aware of an issue where some of the Friendship Level bonuses (the extra Premier Ball or the attack boost) are not applied. This issue affects Friendships where one or both Trainers change their nickname after becoming Friends with one another. This issue will be fully resolved in a future release of Pokémon GO.


This issue can be resolved by removing and then re-adding a Friend affected by this issue.
