Pokemon GO is getting a big update.
Niantic unveiled the new Friends feature, which allows players to trade pocket monsters, send items, and earn bonuses. To utilize the new feature, two players must add each other’s Trainer Code, akin to that of a Friend Code on Nintendo systems.
Spinning a Photo Disk now gives you the chance of receiving a gift. Theyare now available to send to friends in-game, which increases Friendship level between players. As friendship level goes up, things like Attack bonuses are given to the player. Niantic notes, however, that you can only increase friendship bonuses once per person, per day.
