Ever since the app first launched back in 2016, fans have been hoping to see player trades and battles find their way to the game for that authentic Pokémon experience. We'll be honest and say that we had a chance to take an early look at them at a Super Secret Niantic Event.

Wait a second, that's not a Pokémon, it's a trainer.

Niantic has just announced that the PvP battle mode is finally coming to Pokemon Go.

In truth, Niantic has shared no details about how trainer battles will work or when they'll actually be added to the game.

Sadly, a release date wasn't among the tweets, but given the influx of new info, I would hazard it's not far away.

Are you ready to battle your friends in Pokémon GO? We know that saying this publicly on GO Hub will generate a lot of hype, but we feel confident that no one will be disappointed! We're also interested in hearing about how trainer battles will be carried out within Pokemon GO, so there's plenty left to learn.

For instance, Trainer Battles will feature three leagues - Great, Master and Ultra - with the main point of difference being the CP cap. After all, in the Pokemon universe, two trainers must battle whenever their eyes meet, and rules are rules.
