Pokémon Go Trainer Battles is live, which means players can engage in direct player-to-play duels for the first time.
Niantic said today that players can now fight in player-vs-player Trainer Battles at levels 10 and upwards in Pokémon Go. The new feature comes two and a half years after the debut of the placement-based game, which has generated more than $ 2 billion in revenue and reached more than 800 million players, ultimately counting. Niantic had to bring other functions like friends
While coaches (players) have been able to compete competitively in training tits and jointly in raidbattles so far, they can now go to the head in matches where three of their creatures are squaring to three from the other player's collection.
"When it comes to creating a fun and engaging Trainer Battle experience, we had to find a careful balance," Niantic said in a blog post. "On the one hand, we wanted the system to be simple and straightforward to any Trainer ̵
1; even some relatively unknown mechanisms for Pokémon video games. At the same time, we wanted to create a unique competitive experience that gave trainers passionate about striking a avenue to create complex strategies. We achieved this balance by implementing the Trainer Battle League and creating even more opportunities for coaches to build combat strategies. "
Over: Pokémon Go also has external Trainer Battle games between players with strong friendships.

Ligaer is not just for access to new players. Fans of previous Pokémon video games know that restrictions on allowed Pokémon change the competitive landscape drastically. Since the Master League has the strongest Pokémon to operate in full force, winning strategies can include powerful Legendary Pokémon and clear counters.
Compare this with the Great League – CP constraint means that almost every Pokémon is on a smooth CP game field. This means that a large number of Pokémon must all be considered so winning strategies can revolve around creative type of matchups and surprisingly your opponent with the unexpected, Niantic said.
"When designing Trainer Battles, we wanted to emphasize the importance of strategy, says the post." The match updates that come with Trainer Battles will, for example, increase the effectiveness of bonuses, and trainers will be able to unlock an additional charged attack for their Pokémon to increase their versatility in combat. Changes like these allow coaches to think more creatively to beat the opponent in a fast format unique to Pokémon Go. "
The team said that Trainer Battles relies on Pokémon Gos's emphasis on encouraging personal social interaction, so remote gameplay is limited to playing only between Ultra Friends and Best Friends.
