Friends are great, right? Well in the world of Pokemon GO, there are five levels of friendships that can be obtained, with each level offering better incentives when trading Pokemon with each other. In this guide, we are going to take a look at how to become Pokemon GO Lucky friends, which is the highest level of friends in the game. It has some pretty great incentives, but won’t be easy to obtain. Here’s how it all works.

Pokemon Go Lucky Friends Guide

There are currently five levels of player friendships in Pokemon GO: Good, Great, Ultra, Best, and Lucky. Essentially, once players become friends in-game, they can raise their friendship level by battling each other, completing raids together, trading pokemon, sending gifts, and a few other things. The more friends do these activities, the higher their friendship level will get. To quickly and effectively raise friendship levels, players will need to complete some of the tasks in the list above daily. Further, friendships can only be leveled up once per day.

To become Lucky friends in Pokemon GO, players will first need to become Best friends with another player. Once you’ve done that, simply continue to send gifts to each other and battle together and eventually you’ll reach Lucky friend status. If you’re just starting out with a new friend, this process will likely take a long time and will require daily dedication, so be patient and try to find a good routine. It’s also worth noting that once you become Best friends, you’ll only have one shot at becoming Lucky friends each day, so don’t worry about trying to spam friendship leveling activities multiple times a day.

Once you reach Lucky friend status with another player, you’ll be able to trade Pokemon for less Stardust and your first trade as Lucky friends will upgrade the Pokemon you’re receiving to a Lucky Pokemon. If you’re not familiar, Lucky Pokemon will require 50% less Stardust to power up, which will save you a lot in the long run. 

In case you haven’t heard, Pokemon GO has added a new feature which will allow players to invite a friend to a raid, which will help level your friendship. After all, you know what they say, a raid a day keeps the doctor away - or something like that. So if you’re planning to compete in a raid in the near future, you might want to consider inviting a friend!
