Some of the most requested features are finally coming to Pokémon GO this week: a friends list and trading. That’s right, not only will you be able to see how your friends are doing, you can send them Pokémon.
It’s friendship gamified too. You’ll level up your friendship as you play and trade together. Level up, and you can go from being a great friend to a best friend. There are probably a few in between that too.
Friendship and trading is coming to Pokémon GO
You won’t just trade Pokémon either. Spin PokéStops and you might receive a special gift that you can send to friends. They’ll get special gifts and a postcard from the location.
Trading will cost StarDust, and you can only level up your friend level if you’re already trainer level 10 or higher. That’s pretty much all there is to it.
So head on over to Google Play to grab Pokémon GO to get back into it in time for the friendship and trading features.
