If you recall, the first Pokemon GO trailer had a scene where a man and woman were trading Pokemon via their phones. Now, people are wondering what on earth happened to this feature; why is it not available in the game yet? We also asked the same question and sought an answer from Niantic. Niantic’s response was that the game is far from finished and there are a lot of features yet to be added.
In a future update, trading will be introduced into the game and you can connect to another player via an in-built feature that connects both players together, very similar to the old Gameboy days. In an interview with the Business Insider, CEO John Hanke said that trading is a core element of the Pokemon GO experience and that there is no doubt that it will be coming.
Finally, what is a Pokemon game without trading? The trading feature is vital for all players to catch ’em all and you can expect it to be introduced soon. There are many more features that will also come to the game such as advanced augmented reality features as well as multiplayer mode. Stay tuned with our website for the latest news on Pokemon GO.
