Friends Lists, Gifts and Trading Added to Pokemon Go June 23, 2018

Posted by Maniac in Game News.

We’ve got some big news from Niantic to start your weekend, trainers. One of the first updates promised for Pokémon Go was the ability to trade Pokémon with friends. It’s been over a year and two generations since Pokémon Go was released and I’m happy to announce that feature has finally arrived!

Pokémon Go players starting at Level 10 will be able to create a Friend List with their peers. It works similarly to the friend codes from Nintendo’s 3DS or Switch handhelds. Friend Codes are uniquely generated for each Pokémon Go player. To get a friend added to your friend list, simply provide a friend your friend code, and accept theirs.

This is the first step players will need to take to make use of the new Trading and Gifting features. For right now, Niantic has revealed that Pokémon Go players will be able to gift special Alolan-Pokémon Eggs from Alolan Pokémon that have not previously been seen in the game. This includes Pokémon like the Alolan Meowth.

Pokémon Go is out now for iOS and Android Smartphones and Tablets.
