Niantic Labs boss John Hanke said player versus player battles may eventually come to Pokemon Go.
Speaking in an interview with TechCrunch, Hanke said PvP is something the company talks “quite a lot about.”
“I have 10 year old son – he’s my Pokemon expert, we play together – he wants to battle his friends in Pokemon Go,” he said. “Battling is something we talk a lot about. It’s probably something that will make its way onto our roadmap.”
He also talked a bit about the recently released Buddy Feature which lets the player collect candy while out walking, and to show off a favorite Pokemon.
A timeframe on when or if to expect PvP wasn’t provided. Hanke also didn’t say when to expect the trading feature to be added.
