Pokemon GO trainer battles confirmed to arrive in December

Pokemon GO trainer battles confirmed to arrive in December
After teasing the launch of the PvP (player versus player) mode for Pokemon GO last week, Niantic announced earlier today that the new gameplay features will be available starting this month.

So, starting December, you'll be able to challenge a friend or another trainer to do battle while on the move. The challenge will be sent via a Battle Code, but not before you set up your team of three Pokemon. Regardless of the result, both players will receive rewards, including a chance at rare Evolution items.

The matchmaking will be based on the players ranking in the Trainer Battle League, which determines the CP limit for the participating Pokemon. According to Niantic, the battles are “fast-paced and real-time,” so you can say goodbye to the turn-based battle system that's usually implemented in this type of games.


Another important thing worth mentioning is that Trainers usually have to be nearby to initiate a Trainer Battle, while Ultra Friends and Best Friends can challenge each other from any distance.

On top of that, players will be able to earn rewards once per day when training with a team leader, including Stardust to help boost your Pokemon.

Black and White was amazing. Then Gen 6 came with Mega evolution and killed pokemon. I still play pokemon Go but nowhere near what I used to, more so for new pokemon and shinies now
