Here’s Every Missing Feature that Players Want in Pokemon Go Battle Leagues


Apr 17, 2023 • Filed to: Virtual Location Solutions • Proven solutions

While it has been a couple of years since the release of Pokemon Go, the game recently added a dedicated PvP mode. The Pokemon Go Battle League is an exciting segment that lets us fight with other trainers remotely. Even though the segment is new, there are so many things that are still missing in the Pokemon Battle League. In this post, we will speculate some of the features that we might expect for Battle Leagues in Pokemon Go.

Part 1: Exciting Features We Want in Pokemon Go Battle Leagues

After giving it a thought, I have come up with the following recommendations that could be improved or introduced in Pokemon Battle League.

Feature 1: A New Casual Gaming Section

Currently, there is only a Rank section in Pokemon Go League Battles that is focused on different cups (like Master or Kanto). Each league section has different rules and CP limits for Pokemons.

During these matches, players mostly select their best Pokemons to partake in Go Battle League. It barely gives us a chance to play with other Pokemons or simply practice. Therefore, Niantic should come up with a dedicated PvP section for casual players. After all, so many players just want to have fun without the stress of rank matches in the Pokemon Battle league.

Feature 2: Friends Online Status and Chat

As of now, it is pretty tough to find other trainers to play with in Battle League Pokemon Go section. Even if we have added a friend, we can’t check whether they are online.

Therefore, the Pokemon Go Battle League can have a better community in which we can easily find other trainers to play with. For instance, there could be a global and regional chat board with recruitment options. Also, we should be able to see which friend is online so we can easily invite them to join a battle.

Feature 3: Removing Friendship Limit for Battles

When the Pokemon Go Battle League started, we could only fight with friends having an “Ultra Friend” level. A while back, this was reduced to “Good Friend”, but still it restricts us from finding people to play with quickly. Almost every player of the Battle League in Pokemon Go has suggested removing the friendship level limit so that we can easily fight with strangers as well.

Feature 4: Representing our Region

Presently, players just fight in the Pokemon Go Battle League without representing any squad, region, or country. This might be a small change, but it can go a long way with country/region ratings and tournaments. Niantic can let players select their country flag and each country can have local/global boards to promote healthy competition.

Other Likely Features for Pokemon Battle League

Since the Battle League section in Pokemon Go is still evolving, we might expect a lot of changes in the coming days. Here are some of the other suggestions that players would love to see in the Pokemon Battle League.

  • The Pokemon Go Battle League rewards are the same since season 1 and players would like to get new rewards now.
  • There should be a “Quick Chat” option to help us communicate with other players and opponents.
  • Apart from a global leaderboard, there should be boards for cities, states, and our friends.
  • Players would also like an option to add another trainer after the battle (to fight again or be friends).
  • Also, there must be more moves, attacks, in-game items, and other tactics in the Pokemon Go Battle League.
  • Other arcade-styled fun games can also be a part of the Battle League in Pokemon Go.
  • Lastly, players would like Niantic to review the game so that they can get rid of unwanted bugs. Besides that, players would also like to have fairer and balanced matchmaking for battles.

Pro Tip: How to Catch Pokemons from Anywhere you want

One of the major concerns of many Pokemon Go players is that they have to invest a lot of time and effort to catch Pokemons. Now, with the help of Dr.Fone – Virtual Location (iOS), you can easily catch almost any Pokemon from the comfort of your home.

Developed by Wondershare, the application can spoof the present location of your iPhone anywhere you like.

Here is a stepwise guide to help you spoof your iPhone location with Dr.Fone – Virtual Location (iOS):

Step 1: Connect your iPhone and get started
