How To Fix Party Play Not Showing In Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go Party Play is a new feature of Pokemon Go game.

Party Play is a mode that allows trainers to create parties of up to four trainers and earn rewards together.

You can team up with 2 to 4 trainers nearby and your trainer avatar will show up on each other’s map and your real-world map will also get updated as you move.

But the avatar for the kid’s account will not show on others’ map as well as they will not be able to see other trainers.

To use Party Play, you have to be at Level 15 or more, and guardians or parents can enable it for kids’ accounts.
