Pokémon GO Gets Online Battle, Matchmaking System in Early 2020
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Niantic announced on Monday that it will add an online matchmaking and battle system to its Pokémon GO game. The new system is called the "GO Battle League," and will launch in early 2020.
The new feature will allow players to battle each other from across the globe using a matchmaking system and a ranked league system. The previous Trainer Battle system only allowed nearby players to battle each other (with the exception of those in Ultra League or who are Best Friends).
The Pokémon GO app launched in select countries including the United States in July 2016.
