Niantic explains ways it plans to improve playing together and Gym battles in Pokémon GO

In a recent interview with Wired, Niantic CEO John Hanke explained some ways his team plans to improve Pokémon GO in 2017 – addressing in-game elements such as playing together and Gym battles. “There are a couple of areas that need to be improved – one of them being playing together and gym battles,” Hanke said. “We released those in an incomplete state. We knew from Ingress that cooperation and planning can be a lot of fun. When people have a common goal, then that’s a strong incentive to meet up with friends or even with people you don’t know. The gameplay in gym battles is very limited. They just don’t work as well as we wish they would. We will overhaul this aspect of the game to ensure more teamwork and to give people a bigger incentive to receive the rewards from gym battles.”
