New ‘POKEMON GO’ Features Are Coming Soon

A new Vice interview with Niantic CEO John Hanke has revealed some interesting new information about Pokemon Go. The interview discusses the successes and challenges of Pokemon Go, including the lack of several long anticipated features. During the interview, Hanke stated that Niantic focused on fixing bugs and patching code, which stalled the development of new features.

Two features specifically mentioned were trading and player-versus-player battles. According to Hanke, at least one of those features would have been live if not for the work on fxing bugs. While Hanke played coy, he’s likely referring to trading as there’s extensive code related to trading Pokemon already in Pokemon Go‘s gamefile.
