Pokémon GO, the mobile sensation by developed by Niantic Labs, have seen a lot of updates recently, with the latest example being a Valentine’s Day event. Further, the game has reached an astounding milestone, hitting the $1 billion in revenue mark, but there are still some much-needed features missing from the game, that fans have been asking for since its release.
Pokémon GO players will be ecstatic to know that Trading and Player versus Player Battles are two of the features being developed and are coming to the game soon.
In an interview with Waypoint, John Hanke, the CEO of Niantic, said that:
“It’s going to be done soon. It is what it is. I’ll take the massive wave of hysteria we enjoyed, and just deal with the fact that it’s caused us to take a bit longer to get the rest of the features up. We’re really happy to make our users happy.” - Source
Further, Mr. Hanke added that the features might first appear in “an abbreviated form”. No specific indication was given exactly how the features will function when first released, nor was a specific release date apart from “soon” given. Lastly, Mr. Hanke reportedly adds that if it wasn't for the server troubles at the game's launch, at least one of the two features would have been out by now...
At the time of writing we don’t anything else about Trading and Player versus Players battles in Pokémon GO. However, both these features have been asked for by the player base since the game’s release, so it is definitely something to get excited about.
