The duels between coaches will be in real time.
If you wanted to put your Pokémon team to the test with other Pokémon GO coaches , it’s time to show off: the matches between players are now available in the Niantic Labs app .
This new mechanism seeks, in the words of the team of developers, “to promote social interaction face to face . ” Only friends and ultra friends can fight “remotely”.
Coach Combats: a social and strategic characteristic
Thanks to this section of the game, players can create a team of up to three Pokémon to face their opponents. In this sense, Niantic indicates that they sought to offer the title a “strategic” component. In this way, they point out the following: “[Coach’s Combat] will allow Coaches to think more creatively to defeat their opponent in a more dynamic format that is unique to Pokémon GO .”
At the same time, according to the Niantic own, the combats will offer rewards and the possibility of obtaining Objects of evolution that are more difficult to obtain in a habitual way. On the other hand, in order to guarantee that the fight will not be unequal, the coaches will have to be part of the same Coaches’ Combat Leagueto be able to fight.
On the other hand, remember that they will be combats characterized by their dynamism and speed , given that they will take place in real time. Players can alternate the use of Stardust and Caramels with shields, to choose to execute fast and charged attack moves, while also having the option to defend against the enemy offensive.
