Pokémon GO Game Reveals Trainer Battle System

Pokémon GO Game Reveals Trainer Battle System

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. Unlike iconic battles with other Pokemon trainers in the classic Gameboy-era and beyond Pokemon games, these trainer battles will not be turn-based.

Earlier today, Pokemon Go released full details about its upcoming Trainer Battle feature, a new addition to the game that will let players battle others in 3 v 3 Pokemon battles.

The best part is that players can challenge Friends and Best Friends from any distance, though battles between other Trainers will need to be nearby one another.

There are three leagues in Pokemon Go Trainer Battles Leagues, each with different CP and players can choose only three Pokemon to battle with.

To keep things a bit more balanced, the battles can be limited to a "League" which places a maximum cap on the CP of Pokémon you can fight with - though "Master League" matches have no limit.

Pokemon Go has a new Trainer Battle system, and future updates could add the ability to battle famous trainers from the main series Pokemon games or anime. You also be able to deploy a shield to block your opponent's attacks with proper timing, or use Stardust and Candy before a battle to unlock a bonus charged attack for your Pokemon to use. After the battle, both players will receive rewards, including rare Evolution items. They will revolve around fast attacks, charged attacks, and protective shields.

Who Can Participate The Trainer Battles?

According to The Verge, the battles should last around four minutes each, and there's an in-game timer that limits how often you can rotate between your 'mon during the fight. Before battling, you can set a battle party in each of the divisions.

To prep for the new feature, you can battle the three team leaders (i.e., fight Spark from team yellow, or Blanche from team blue), and earn rewards like stardust.

Pokémon Go is available now for free on iOs and Android. The second attack can be used in any type of battle, and it affords you more flexibility with a Pokemon and the type matchups it's prepared for.
