Pokemon Go is finally letting you make friends and trade pokemon
One of the most fundamental aspects of the series will finally arrive in Pokemon Go sometime soon. The game has been out for a while, but you still can’t give your friend a Pidgey (named “Trash Bird”) in exchange for an Oddish (named “Smell Onion”). But when trading and friends arrive in the game, you can give your friends useful monsters in exchange for anything from another monster to good feelings.
Trading will be very reliant upon the friendship system, and it has some limitations, as both players need to be within 100 meters to trade and will have to pay a stardust fee based on friend level. Yes, there are friendship levels, and there are also rewards for trading pokemon caught far away from where you and your friend meet. Check out the full rundown on the official site, and get ready for more details and analysis as it arrives before the next fan gathering in July.
