Niantic’s official Pokémon GO Trainer Battle announcement is almost here!

Trainer Battles – also known as PvP battles – are finally coming to Pokémon GO in the near future. Niantic has revealed the first batch of details regarding the new feature. Coming with Trainer Battles is the introduction of three Pokémon GO Trainer Battle Leagues—Great, Ultra and Master. CP strength is not the only deciding factor in Pokémon GO Trainer Battles; Trainers will need to choose a league before going into a Trainer Battle, with each league having different maximum Pokémon CP limits. Here’s a breakdown of each Battle League’s requirements:

  • 🏆 Great League: 1,500 CP limit per Pokémon
  • 🏆 Ultra League: 2,500 CP limit per Pokémon
  • 🏆 Master League: No CP limit per Pokémon

While Pokémon with high CP might be a big advantage in Master League battles, Trainers will have to think more strategically when battling in the Great and Ultra Leagues, where there are specific CP limitations. When designing Trainer Battles, Niantic wanted to create an experience that everyone can enjoy and ensure that different kinds of Pokémon can show their strengths. With Leagues in Trainer Battles, Niantic hopes to create a system that’s accessible to many Trainers. More information about Trainer Battles will be revealed soon. In the meantime, the developer encourages you to get ready for Trainer Battles by reviewing the Pokémon in your Pokédex and creating battle parties for each league.
