How To Add Friends

3 Ways To Add Friends

1Using the Player ID
2Via Nintendo Account Screen
3After a match

1. Get Their Player ID

Player ID

You can ask your friends for their Player ID and use it to find them in the Friend Menu. The Player ID is a 7-character code that can be viewed by going to the Trainer Info Screen. Added friends must confirm your friend request first before you can see them on the Friends screen!

Cannot Search Via Trainer's Name

Unfortunately, players cannot be searched with only their Trainer name & therefore cannot be added. The Player ID is essential to be able to search and add other players.
