It’s official, we’ve hit peak Pokémon GO, in the form of the world’s first ever Pokémon GO dating service, PokéDates. Yes, really.

PokéDates is offering single players in the US and Canada dates based on their preferences and a mutual desire to play Pokémon GO.

PokéDates schedules the date based on players’ availability, and chooses a handy PokeGym or PokeStop as a meeting point.

Right now the first PokéDate is free with promo code POKEDATES2016 – whether you’re Team Instinct, Mystic, or Valor. After that, each PokéDate will cost $20 each, unless you earn more PokéDates by referring friends.

PokéDates is powered by Project Fixup, an offline dating startup based in Chicago.

“Our service is like your best friend fixing you up with someone they think you’ll like,” said Dank Korenevsky, Chief Fixup Officer at Project Fixup, in a release.

“Except we know more people than they do, listen to what you’re looking for without injecting our own opinions, and happen to know all the best bars, coffeeshops, and in this case PokéStops.”

Who said romance is dead?
