Trainer Battles Coming to ‘Pokemon Go’

Niantic revealed the details of the upcoming Trainer Battle feature for the Pokémon GO smartphone game on Tuesday. Players have been clamouring for the feature since day one, hoping to beat each other's cute little creatures into a bloody pulp, so it's a welcome addition to the game. We also went hands-on with a demo version of these battles, which now don't have a firm release date-though they are set to arrive in Pokemon Go soon.

Pokemon Go players have longed for a Trainer Battle system and for additional opponents to battle for quite some time. The announcement tells us that "beginning this month" the new trainer battles feature will let players challenge a friend or another trainer at any time. Each player will sport a team of three Pokemon that will duke it out to see which one survives the encounter. Both players in a battle will receive rewards, including rare Evolution items. Upon release, Pokemon GO changed the industry with millions of people upgrading to a new phone just so they could play it. Power banks were selling out as quickly as they could be made and pools of players were drawn to certain locations as they were hotspots for catching certain Pokemon. People will be able to fight people who are in the same Battle League as them locally and go online to face off against their Ultra and Best Friends.

Once you've scanned the code of the trainer you want to battle, you'll need to pick a league: there's Great League, where the max CP per Pokemon tops out at 1,500; Ultra League, which has a max CP per Pokemon of 2,500; and Master League, a mode that has no limit on CP.

Pokémon GO Game Reveals Trainer Battle System - News

Trainer Battles, like others in GO, are real-time rather than turn-based, so you have to act fast. Your selected team of Pokémon will be able to execute both their Fast Attack and Charged Attack moves.

When you're in the middle of a match, you will have the option to use Shields. But there's an exemption to that.

Along with being able to take on other players, you will also be able to train against the game's team leaders for daily rewards. Before battling, you can set a battle party in each of the divisions.
