PVP Battling and Legendary Pokemon Heading To Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go Update

Pokemon Go developer Niantic have stated that player verses player and Legendary Pokemon will be coming to Pokemon Go.

The update is scheduled for release this summer. These features will also be joined by something to “give more value to your choice of team” according to the Pokemon Go developer.

This news comes from Niantic executive Mathieu de Fayet, via an interview which featured in the Brizillian newspaper O Globo (via Go Nintendo).

de Fayet explained that “Due to the large success of the game, we had to delay some planned innovations,” he went to to say that “Right now we are working on some that are due to hit this summer (in the northern hemisphere), such as giving more value to the choice of the teams, releasing Legendary Pokémon and introducing PvP.”

“One thing we learned with Ingress was that the game can sustain itself if we are able to create social interactions amongst players, and we are working on that.”
