Rejoice, Trainer Battles are finally coming to Pokémon GO

Ever since Pokémon GO launched in 2016, players have been begging Niantic to add Trainer Battles. Well, it looks like you won’t have to wait much longer! Today the official Pokémon GO Twitter tweeted out some interesting hints, and finally confirmed that Trainer Battles are indeed on the way.

Are you excited to finally have Pokémon battles with your friends in Pokémon GO? It is still unknown on how the battle system will work and when the feature will be added. A recent interview with a Niantic employee did suggest that the feature will be added before the end of this year. Hopefully, that holds true!

Pokémon GO is finally starting to get all the features fans had hoped for and we couldn’t be more excited. While you wait, don’t forget to join in on this weekend’s Community Day event! As always be sure to share all your thoughts with us in the comments down below.
