Starting early next year, players of the hit mobile game Pokémon Go, will be able to put their skills to the test against other players from around the world. Niantic has announced the new Pokémon Go feature called Go Battle League. Last year the game introduced trainer battles to allow players to fight nearby trainers. Go battles will pit players against each other for the first time randomly from around the world.
While not going into specific details, Niantic did state that “Like many Pokémon GO features, GO Battle League will encourage players to get out and explore the world with Pokémon. Trainers will be able to walk in order to earn entry into the GO Battle League”.
The feature is set for release in early 2020, with Niantic promising to share more details in an upcoming Dev Insights video soon
