Trading and PvP battles are still in the cards for Pokemon Go.
Speaking to IGN in the wake of today’s Pokemon Go generation 3 and dynamic weather announcement, Niantic global product marketing lead Archit Bhargava explained that the team is always considering new features and how to prioritize them.
“Trading was mentioned in the initial launch trailer of the game, so that is definitely something that we want to get to at some point,” Bhargava told IGN. “I think the priority has always been, you know, what is the feature that we can launch now that we feel will get the community excited and energized. So we do continue to talk about some of the features that you mentioned, and they are on the roadmap. We just haven’t fully investigated those and talked about how would we want to bring those into Pokemon Go. So that is definitely something that we’re focused on.”
