Pokémon Go has already ruined a relationship, so it's only fair that the virtual gaming sensation helps bring some people together as well. The app that has become famous for getting millennials to go and explore the outside world has launched a new spinoff app called Pokematch, with the goal of helping new Pokémon trainers find love.
