Nice that we got more information on how the battle system is going to work, but I do not know if this would be enough to get me to playing Pokémon Go. From what I have read it looks like it's going to be similar to how players face giant pokémon during the special events which were not at all that engaging compare to battling in the core Pokémon games. I would like to see a video of this battle system in action before I make a decision.

In the meantime for the people who are already invested in Go, I can imagine this is something they may be looking forward to as they can finally do something with the pokémon they catch besides displaying them as collections, trading for other pokémon, and turning some of them into candies to use on other pokémon. This is certainly a feature that was a long time coming.

I am excited (I like walking with some podcasts or music and this game helps me okay Anime hyper) I have no idea if I will like this battle mode or will I just be reminded of the typical system of the games, but I will certainly try it, besides I have many friends on high levels of friendship already :3
