Pokémon GO Trading Feature and More Coming Soon4 weeks ago by Kristin Paradisis in Games
Starting this week, Pokémon GO will be introducing brand new gaming features such as trading, friends, and gifting. Many Pokémon fans are currently indulging in the excitement of two new Role-playing games (RPGs) by Nintendo Switch called Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go Eevee! to be released later this year. However, the two new Switch games will see plenty of influence from mobile game Pokémon GO‘s new features, as well as some old.
The augmented reality game has already seen some growth this year, as the process of including all 151 original Pokémon was completed with the addition of ‘Mew’. Fans of the mobile game have long-awaited features such as battling other trainers and trading. Though the features were teased upon release of Pokémon GO in 2016, several of them will now finally begin to be implemented into the game.
The gift options will include Eggs that contain rare forms of Pokémon that can be caught in the game but are still hard to find. As for friendships, the use of features that align with traditional Pokémon RPGs will help friendships to grow as players exchange gifts and battle each other in Raids and Gyms. The trading feature will bring players even more excitement, as newly caught Pokémon through gifts and trade will be able to transfer to the Nintendo Switch Let’s Go games.
