This change will allow Trainer profiles to link to Facebook and Google accounts and these accounts can be used to access Pokémon GO. To link a Trainer profile to a Google or Facebook account, a player must access the Settings menu and then select Facebook or Google.

Account linking allows a player who has registered for Pokémon GO using a Google Account, that they may not be able to access in the future, to continue playing GO. By linking a Facebook account, a player can continue to make progress.

This feature will only be available to players aged 13 and over.
