After years of wanting this feature oh so bad, Pokemon GO players can now battle other trainers. With battling being one of the main concepts of the mainline Pokemon series, not having this at the launch of the mobile title bummed out some fans, but now it’s here and Niantic has released a really cool live-action trailer, which you can watch below.
Like always, the trailer shows Pokemon in real life –like how it looks in our dreams– with trainers battling around the city and on basketball courts, you know, where battles would normally take place if these creatures existed.
If you’re wondering how these trainer battles exactly work, make sure to watch Niantic’s overview video that they released the other day, detailing the new feature in Pokemon GO; you can also read our guide right here.
