Pokemon Go is finally letting you trade with friends

Labeled the "Friends Feature", you'll need to exchange a lengthy trainer code to register your buddies on a friends list.

The announcement from Pokemon GO revealed a lot of details about the new system and explained how players can increase their friend levels. So, a Level 10 player can make a trade with a Level 35 player, but the Pokemon they receive will be scaled down to reflect the Level 10 player's current abilities and level cap. Great Friends get a discount on the Stardust cost for trading, receive a boost to attacks when battling alongside each other, and receive one extra Premiere Ball for completing Raids with each other.

You can also trade Pokemon with a friend as long as you have a Trainer Level of 10 or higher and are physically close to one another. The Niantic developers told me that trading has been on their mind since the company first launched the game, (it was even teased in an early trailer, ) and now that we're here, the product certainly looks a lot more like a Pokemon game. Reaching Great Friend status takes seven days of friendship activities.

Best friend: 90 days. These will be called "Special Trades", and you'll only be able to perform these once a day.

Granted, this seems to be the highest cost, associated with what are considered "Special Trades". In other words, trading with a more seasoned player to get that Pokemon you've been missing from your collection may not always be out of reach - it'll just take you a few months of playing together to make doing so affordable. Special Trades include those of Legendary Pokemon, shiny Pokemon, or Pokemon not already in one of the two trainers' Pokedexes.

Mickelson jogged after the ball after it curled around the hole, realizing it was about to head down the other side of the green. But he praised the setup earlier this week and said again Saturday that it was tough and "everyone has to play it".

With all the E3 news about Pokemon Let's Go, it's worth remembering Pokemon GO still has major content updates on the way.

Players will need to be within 100 meters in order to complete a trade - so this isn't a feature that players can use remotely. The Gifts you receive at PokeStops can not be opened by the founding Trainer, and so are only useful for giving to friends. These Gifts will contain items and potentially an egg containing an Alolan form of a Pokemon originally discovered in the Kanto region.

Trading will also involve this friend system, letting players that are connected to each other trade Pokemon as long as they are also in physical proximity of each other.

Finally, you will also find new gifts when spinning Photo Discs once the Friends feature roll outs.
