Important for Pokémon Go, Ingress Prime and Pikmin Bloom - the Niantic ID

In order to turn all Niantic games, i.e. Pokémon Go, Ingress Prime and Pikmin Bloom, into a game universe with universal character names, those responsible at Niantic want to introduce the Niantic ID. They already started with this in 2021 when it was already possible for players of the three AR games to reserve their Niantic ID.

Now the web portal for the Niantic ID is live and accessible on the Nianticlabs website

. There you can create and manage a Niantic ID, access friend lists and customize your profile. But will the Niantic ID still be important? Yes, very likely it will! We'll explain why in the following.

Switching all game profiles to Niantic ID

In the official press release on the Niantic blog

, it is noted that the people of Pokémon Go and Co. want to make it easier for you to manage friendships across the games - the profiles will therefore be unified in the course of 2022. "In the coming months, the current Niantic profile in our games will be replaced by the profile in the web portal," it says. And that in turn means that you will certainly want to move to Niantic ID once in the coming months to still secure your desired name. Also read these interesting stories 0
