Trainer Battles

The trainer battles will be similar to a gym battle with one major difference, human interactions. You will be battling your friends who are able to dodge skills, plan strategic attacks just like you can. Trainer Battles will be more tense and gruelling than you have yet to experience in Pokemon Go.

Battles will happen real-time so you must choose carefully when to strike using your Pokemon quick or charged attack moves. One wrong move can spell the end of the battle. You can deploy Protect Shields to protect your Pokémon from sustaining damage, but you only have a limited amount.

If you are looking to be more offensive, you will be able to gain bonus charged attacks. This can be unlocked by using your Stardust and Candy before you head into battle.
