Player vs Player Battle mode! – Hydrating the thirsty ones.

How to –

  • Players of level 10 and above are eligible for this new battle mode.
  • Just tap ‘Nearby‘ in the menu and opt for ‘Battle‘ mode. You would be shown up a ‘Battle Code‘ which is supposed to be scanned by your opponent (or vice-versa) to join. After linking up, players make a team of three Pokemons each from their lists to battle up.
  • Unlike PUBG and COC, Pokemon Go demands the opponent’s physical presence for battling. Scanning the code and fighting has to be done nearby.
  • If not the above, players may challenge their ‘Ultra‘ or ‘Best‘ friends to battle remotely.
  • The selected Battle Pokemons are barred by CP limits, limiting them only to a certain power of their originals. This is to proceed a fair competition between uneven powered Pokemons.
  • Players, once a day, can battle against AI build team leaders like Blanche, Candela, and Spark as practice and other real Trainer leaders.
  • Irrespective of win-lose, this PvP mode rewards both the competing players with loots, but only thrice a day. Such rewards may include Sinnoh stone which helps Pokemons grow to Gen 4 form.
  • This version give Trainers with more options of skin tones and hair colours to their avatars.
  • Niantic suggested that, even if there’s an error showing up this change after updating, try resetting the app and relaunching.
