Niantic Just Added Awesome New Features To Pokemon GO
We all know very well-know about the well-known augmented reality game, of course, Pokemon Go, yes, it is a big hit for Niantic. However, I only started playing Pokemon Go a year after its arrival in India, and I was surprised that it was not possible to exchange Pokemon with friends, or even add friends. Now, two years after its launch, these features are finally coming to iOS and Android.
As recently, Niantic has announced that coaches will be able to add friends. To do so, you will need a Coach Code, a numerical sequence similar to that used in the Nintendo Switch. Ask the Coach Code for someone else, tap the button on your avatar, and add the contact to your list. In turn, to exchange a Pokémon, your friend should have to be in up to 100m away and play at level 10 or higher.
Each exchange will consume its Star Dust; the amount varies depending on the Pokémon involved and your Friendship Level. The more hearts with a friend, the less stellar dust you have to spend. There are four levels: “best friends” (four hearts), “ultra friends”, “great friends” and “good friends” (one heart).
If the Pokémon is not in your Pokedex, the game will understand this as a Special Swap. The same goes for a Legendary or Bright Pokémon. It is only possible to perform a Special Exchange per day, and only at the “best friends” levels or higher.
Go sending gifts and participating in battles with your contacts to increase the Level of Friendship between you. You can get gifts in a Gym, but only your friends can open them.
Each gift contains “useful items” and a postcard showing where it was captured. It may also include an egg that, when shocked, will bring the upgraded form of a Pokémon from the Kanto region. Niantic created these restrictions to swap Pokémon in order to prevent a black market within the game.
In the Friends section, you’ll see a sort of news feed with their recent activity – that is, the last Pokémon they captured. You can have up to 200 contacts.
