'Pokemon Go' Update: Niantic Talks About Trading, PvP And Gen 2 As The Next Big Update
Niantic Labs CEO John Hanke recently sat to discuss about their future plans for their augmented reality game Pokemon Go. Hanke mentions that they are working hard to bring the best gaming experience to their fans by adding some improvements and tweaks on the game. Pokemon Go is now currently on its version 0.37.1 with two notable feature additions -Appraisal and Buddy Pokemon. However, some of the fans are still waiting for the other feature additions to come, particularly the Trading, Player Battles and Gen 2. Thankfully, Hanke hinted some possible additions on the next major update.
According to Otakukart, after the release of Buddy Pokemon to the public, Niantic Labs' next plan is to make the game available on Big Asia Countries particularly China and India where they have experienced difficulty due to the extensive lands and overly populated cities. On the other hand, John Hanke was also asked if fans will ever see a player-vs-player battle in the game. The CEO answered that it would be a great addition and will possibly heads its way towards their road map along with the Gen 2. He also adds that they have prioritized the Trading feature first and currently under development. That means fans will most probably see the Trading ahead of the other rumored feature additions.
In addition, TCC mentions that Niantic is really serious on making Pokemon Go's gaming environment even more exciting by adding these core features. However, some of it are still stuck on a blueprint. Hopefully, Niantic will be quick enough to react as their numbers were reportedly decreasing from time to time.
On the other hand, Otakukart revealed the possible arrival of these said features:
- Pokemon Go Trading Feature: October 2016
- Pokemon Go Trainer Battles: December 2016/January 2017
- Pokemon Go Gen 2: May 2017
