Pokemon GO Receiving New Friends, Trading and Gifting Features – Here are the Details
Probably the biggest moment in Pokemon GO is almost here as Niantic has announced new Friends, Trading and Gifting features.
You Will Soon be Able to Add Friends, Trade Pokemon or Gift Items to Your Friends in Pokemon GO
Niantic, in an official announcement post has revealed that Friends, Trading and Gifting is coming to Pokemon GO. The Friends feature will be rolled out to Trainers later this week according to Niantic and will allow everyone to catch up on the progress of your real-life friends. Adding is as simple as sharing your Trainer Code with others and you'll be done in no time. Once added, you'll see everyone in your Friends List in Pokemon GO.
Gifting is an interesting new feature. As you spin a Photo Disc at a PokeStop or a Gym you will end up receiving a 'Gift' in certain occasions. These gifts can't be redeemed by you but you can send them to people in your Friends List. The gift is going to be a 'stash of helpful items' and may even include special surprises.
Last but not the least, Trading is coming to Pokemon GO as well. It works only if you have a Trainer Level of 10 or higher and are near a friend. Once the Pokemon is traded you will boost your Friendship Level and even earns you a bonus candy once the trade is completed successfully.
