Pokemon Go Trading Is Here At Long Last

Players group together at the Pokémon Go Tottori Safari Zone

Level 40 happens to be the highest level in Pokemon Go right now, which means both you and the friends you want to trade Pokemon with have to reach it. This was a feature that many expected to be part of Pokemon GO when the game was launched, and despite there being many promises and hints, the feature remained missing for the longest time ever.

The new Pokemon games for Switch will integrate a number of features from the mobile game, including its motion-based capture mechanic, and replacing random encounters with visibly roaming Pokemon. Once that player has accepted your request, they will appear on your list and you will get an opportunity to interact with them accordingly.

Once you're connected, you can do a number of things with your friends, including battle opponents in gyms, send gifts and even participate in raid battles together. Special Trades can only occur once per day with a Great Friend or Best Friend, and it often requires a lot of Stardust to complete a Special Trade. You can trade Pokemon characters inside the app, which means you don't have to catch them all! Niantic also announced a friends system will be coming alongside the trading feature.

Given that, there are stardust costs and limitations to the trading itself. For right now, we're unsure where what the level range will be; as it changes, we'll update this story.

Niantic's Kento Suga told The Verge the company also wanted to make trading safe for children. "I hope we came up with something that's natural and enjoyable".

"We believe this is the best way to be fair, safe, and fun for users", Suga said.
