Pokemon GO Trading Update

Pokemon GO fans have had a very busy December as Niantic Labs has lined up several exciting events this month. This is in line with Niantic?s continued efforts to keep Pokemon GO players engaged with the game. The game?s developers recently announced the Pokemon GO Holiday Update, which made fans extremely happy. After that, it appears that the Pokemon GO Trading Update could very well be the next thing that Niantic will be working on according to reports.

Right now, Pokemon GO trainers can only get a Pokemon in two possible ways: catching them or hatching them. One essential feature of the Nintendo Pokemon games which is Pokemon trading is not yet available in Pokemon GO.

According to Express UK, Niantic Labs already has an existing patent on a virtual transport system in the virtual world. The report cites that this could be an essential element for Pokemon trading to be added to Pokemon GO.
