Niantic teases upcoming PvP mode for Pokemon GO
A couple of images teasing the PvP mode have just been tweeted by the official Pokemon GO handle, which suggests the new feature might drop very soon, maybe by the end of the year.
The upcoming player-versus-player mechanic will probably breath new life in a game that has become a phenomenon immediately after making its debut on iOS devices. Unfortunately, even though PvP is one of the major features of the Pokemon franchise, Niantic hasn't been able to include in the game's initial release.
Although we expect a spike in players once PvP mode makes it into the game, depending on how well the feature will be implemented, these new players may remain faithful to Pokemon GO for a longer time.
