Pokémon Go is ready to expand once again with the upcoming addition of trainer battles, offering the first real head-to-head competition the game has seen since it launched in 2016. Last week, Niantic invited Kotaku to try out this new mode at their offices, and much like the game itself, these battles are a little rough, but still provide some good entertainment as well as a foundation to build on in the future.
Niantic’s offices sit right on the San Francisco piers in the historic Ferry Building, above a bustling marketplace that offers everything from fresh-baked bread to premium ice cream. The morning’s rainstorms had softened to a bluster, and the sun was beginning to break onto the Golden Gate Bridge nearby as I arrived there last Thursday. As I looked for an elevator, it took everything I had to keep from pulling out my phone to see what kinds of monsters were lurking among the Ferry Building’s pastries now that Pokémon Go has firmly taken hold of my life. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one.
