The long-promised feature of being able to fight against other trainers is now officially integrated into Pokémon Go.
Niantic started rolling out the feature last night gating it based on player levels, but now it is fully integrated. You just have to have achieved at least level 10 to fight your fellow trainer.
Imran got a chance to try out the combat system, which is a little different from fighting in gyms and doing raids, prior to its official release. You can read all about it here.
I am one of those weirdos that never stopped playing Pokémon Go and as far as things I wanted to see added to the game, this was personally probably at the bottom of my list. It’s a nice bullet-point for the game’s features, but after my wife and I tried a few battles last night, I can’t imagine I will be doing it much more.
