When it originally launched, Pokemon Go only had one method of PVP, in the form of gyms that were located in various spots around the map.
Niantic Labs is teasing the long-awaited player versus player feature for Pokemon Go.
While no official release date has been announced during the interview, Niantic has surprised their fans today by announcing that trainer battle is finally coming to the game. "#GOBattle". The tweet sparked a flurry of discussion and speculation on the much-anticipated feature for the game. Great League has a limit of 1,500 CP per Pokemon, Ultra League has a limit of 2,500 CP per Pokemon, and Master League has no CP limit.
And there you have it, Trainer Battles are indeed coming sometime soon. In traditional Pokemon titles, the fights are turn-based and players choose which actions their creatures take. "With Leagues in Trainer Battles, we hope to create a system that's accessible to many Trainers". When a trainer noticed the player, an exclamation point would appear just before the battle started. Although details about how is it going to work are a bit scarce at the moment, Niantic is letting us know that it won't be long until Pokemon GO players will have access to a PvP mode.
