If you’ve been waiting for the day when you can battle your friends in Pokémon Go, we have some good news. You’ll be able to do just that later this month. That’s because trainer battles will finally arrive by the end of the year. Sure, it may be two and a half years after the game launched, but better late than never right?
You’ll use a QR battle code to challenge someone else with a team of three Pokémon. However, in most cases, you’ll need to be close to another player to battle them. You can play against your actual friends wherever they are as long as they’re on your Ultra or Best Friends lists. Fans of the game have been waiting for this for a long time.
Niantic Labs is putting players into three leagues, which have CP limits on Pokémon to make sure that fights are fair. You can only battle others in the same division. Before you hop into a real-time battle, you’ll have the option of using candy and stardust resources to give your Pokémon an extra charged attack, while you can use protect shields during a fight to defend them. Both parties will get rewards after the fight.
This may lure players back to the game.
