Pokémon Go to receive PvP, Legendaries in the coming months


Haven't we heard this before?

Pokémon Go is set to receive player versus player (PvP) alongside Legendary Pokémon in the coming months, according to developer Niantic.

Speaking with O Globo (via Go Nintendo), Niantic’s Vice President of Strategic Partnerships, Mathieu de Fayet, said the additions will head to the mobile game later in the North American summer (or Australian winter).

“Right now we are working on some that are due to hit this summer (in the northern hemisphere), such as giving more value to the choice of the teams, releasing Legendary Pokémon and introducing PvP,” de Fayet said. “One thing we learned with [previous title] Ingress was that the game can sustain itself if we are able to create social interactions amongst players, and we are working on that.”

Do you still play Pokémon Go? Will you jump back in after this huge update?

Pokémon Go is available now on iOS and Android devices.
