Two years later, you can finally trade with your friends in 'Pokemon Go'

  Two years later, you can finally trade with your friends in 'Pokemon Go' For anybody still playing "Pokemon Go" almost two years after its initial release, good news: developer Niantic is rolling out a feature to allow players to trade their Pokemon with one another. It's a big add, given that trading Pokemon is a key element of the series but has been absent from "Pokemon Go." The change is rolling out starting this week, and sets up players with a new system that will allow people to become "friends" in the game, and start to earn rewards together. Niantic announced the news on its blog, along with all the ins and outs of how trading will work. For those who never got in on the fad, "Pokemon Go" is all about catching and collecting virtual monsters called Pokemon. There are hundreds of the little guys, and the gimmick of the game is that you find them scattered around the real world. The game uses location data to log where you are while playing the game, and certain kinds of Pokemon only show up in certain places, like in parks or near bodies of water. Trading makes the collection part a little easier, since you can potentially get rare Pokemon you haven't found yet from friends who have.

This could be the most charming Pokémon adventure ever

It’s not wrong to feel skeptical of Pokémon: Let’s Go. On the surface, the game is an upscaled version of Pokémon Go mashed up with the first-generation Pokémon games. The pitch is that this is Pokémon for budding Pokémon fans. So where does that leave us who play video games because of Pokémon, and have been doing so since the series launched more than 20 years ago?

After trying out Let’s Go, Pikachu! during E3 2018, I have good news: It’s as fun as any other mainline Pokémon game. In fact, it may even be more so — if you’re open to the fact that this beautiful, charming little game is about the journey, not the destination.

I spent my Let’s Go, Pikachu! demo walking through Viridian Forest, one of the most iconic areas in Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue. The differences from that game are immediately clear, however: A Pikachu clung to my trainer avatar’s shoulder as I traveled around. So did a Charmander, which I had released from my Poké Ball to accompany Pikachu and me. I even got to interact with Charmander, whom you can bend down to chat with at any point.

If there’s anything you need to know about me, it’s that I am in love with Charmander and everything Charmander-related. Needless to say, I nearly cried when my Charmander looked up at me and the game translated its cheers: It was happy to be walking with me.

This is the kind of sweet touch that’s hardly found in the Pokémon games, although it’s a hallmark of the anime that’s based on them. That players can build close relationships with their Pokémon — something we haven’t seen in this capacity since Pokémon Heart Gold and Soul Silver — seems to be ripped straight from the anime. It’s absolutely wonderful, and makes the Pokémon world seem that much livelier.

The anime influence is major, both in the interactions with Pokémon as well as other humans. But equally influential is Pokémon Go, which the development team drew from for the wild Pokémon battles. That sounds like a turnoff, or at least it was for me. And it’s definitely not the most exciting thing to just swing a controller at the screen as a circle gets smaller, just as in Pokémon Go. But the battles at least look beautiful, and the game flashes the stats you need to know about each Pokémon at the start of them. That eliminates any need to repeatedly catch a Pokémon in the hopes that it’s the level you want it to be.

It’s hard to say quite how challenging Let’s Go! will become outside of this obviously simplified battle system, though. I assume it won’t rise to the same kind of complex, strategic difficulty level as the handheld games, as even trainer battles seem to focus more on presentation than skill. (It’s fun to see a trainer command their Pokémon on a very detailed battlefield.) That really seems besides the point, though, and considering that we’ve played a game set in this region before, it’s nice to look at it from a different angle.

It’s really, really, really nice. The whole thing is just ... pleasant. And sometimes, with Pokémon? That’s actually enough. I’m amped to just enjoy quality time with my buds on Nov. 16, when Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! launch.
