Pokemon Go is finally getting the online player battle support and ranking system starting 2020. Niantic has made this announcement today saying that the GO Battle League will build upon Trainer Battles, which is the current player vs. player feature within Pokémon GO.
Trainer Battles launched almost a year ago in Pokémon GO. The new GO Battle League feature takes things to the next level. Here’s what Niantic shared in their announcement:
Like many Pokémon GO features, GO Battle League will encourage players to get out and explore the world with Pokémon. Trainers will be able to walk in order to earn entry into the GO Battle League, then battle opponents from around the globe through an online matching system and rise in the ranks of the league.
Niantic is yet to share many other details about the upcoming changes to the Pokemon Go. Pokemon Go’s PvP system breaks Pokemon up into different divisions based on their CP, meaning that players have to carefully coordinate which Pokemon to power up and which to leave at certain levels in order to make the tier cut-offs. Many Pokemon that aren’t great in PvE content like raids are considered great in PvP, like Altered Forme Giratina.
These new features are scheduled to hit the platform in early 2020. We can expect to have some more details of the upcoming changes in the coming weeks.
