Although you do not need to have a number in order to play Pokemon GO the game will ask for it. You will see a red dot near your avatar. If you look closely, it is from the ability to add new friends. You have now the ability to add friends to your contacts list. To do this, you will need a number. While you don’t have to add this information, it does make the red bullet appear to disappear.

You aren’t required to, however, if you wish to add contact information from your phone to Pokemon Go, it is possible.
