Pokemon Go – the augmented reality, location-based monster catching game – will be getting monster trading in a future update.
According to an interview with developer Niantic’s CEO John Hanke (via Business Insider), the feature is described as “kind of a core element” to the game. It’s unclear what form the trading mechanic will take – whether it will be location based, online, or person-to-person.
The CEO continued that some of the game’s current core features – like Gyms, and Pokéstops – are in their “very most basic versions.” He added that players will be able to “customise their functions in other ways,” whatever that means. He went on to say that the game will also sport global leaderboards.
