Trainer Battles are now live in Pokémon GO. This feature allows for players to battle eachother locally, or over the Internet if Ultra or Best Friends, as well as battling the Team Leaders in a test match. This yields various rewards including the Sinnoh Stone. With this, getting a second attack on your Pokémon is now possible as well using Candy. This goes from 10,000 Stardust & 25 Species Candy up to 100,000 Stardust and 100 Species Candy depending on your Pokémon's species. We're currently testing the feature and will report all new elements so keep checking back
Edit @ 03:13: Now live for Trainers Level 30 or above
Edit @ 03:26: Updated our Trainer Battles section with lists of each of the NPC Trainer's teams
Edit @ 03:34: The cost for a second move is relative to a Pokémon's Buddy Candy distance. We have updated our In-Depth Pokémon GO Pokédex with listings for each Pokémon
1km (Plus Starters & Baby Pokémon) = 10,000 Stardust + 25 Candy
3km = 50,000 Stardust + 50 Candy
5km = 75,000 Stardust + 75 Candy
20km = 100,000 Stardust + 100 Candy
Edit @ 04:02: In addition to this, there have been some tweaks with the GO stat charts. Alolan Diglett has had its Attack and Defense lowered while Kantonian Dugtrio has had a Defense increase & Alolan Dugtrio has had a Defense decrease. In addition to this, Ninjask has had its Attack raised. Finally, Meltan & Melmetal have had their stats altered to be more in line with how they should be when calculating their stats from the base stats in the main series titles. We have updated all of our Pokémon GO section with these changes including changes to their CP
Edit @ 07:59: Updated the Pokémon Database and Moves List with all the Trainer Battle specific stats for moves
Edit @ 08:56: It has also been discovered that the type effectiveness has altered. Super Effective is now *1.6, Not Very Effective damage is now *0.625 and moves which would be immune in main series now do *0.39

Niantic have announced the full details of the upcoming Trainer Battles feature. This feature, as reported on Friday, has three different leagues with various CP caps. However, we now have the full details of the battle mechanics. You battle other trainers by sharing a QR code with them. If one player scans the code, they can challenge you to a battle. Normally trainers need to be local, but Ultra Friends and Best Friends can challenge each other from any distance. You can also battle the Team Leaders once a day to gain rewards
As with other battles in the game, this is a tap focused battle. However, rather than just one charge move, you now have a second that can be called upon. This second move requires Stardust and Candy to unlock. It can then be used in Gyms and Raids as well.
As you attack with your Fast Move, you charge up the charge moves. When they are fully charged, you can activate them with a quick repeated tap to charge them up. The Fast attacks stop for a short time while the player does that
There is also a shield that can be generated through the battles. This protects the Pokémon from damage from Charge Attacks but players can only use a select number in a battle.
There are rewards for the battling. These rewards include the Sinnoh Stone and other evolution items
This feature will also reactivate the previously defunct Ace Trainer medal
You cannot use Ditto or Shedinja in this mode.

Serebii.net Advent Calendar

As we have done since 2003, this year I have created an Advent Calendar. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term, an Advent Calendar is essentially a countdown until Christmas. Every day, a new puzzle and a variety of new downloads for you to enjoy. As time goes on, the puzzles get harder and the downloads get more plentiful, so be sure to check back every day. Continuing on from the last few year, we are doing a variety of puzzles which can be done in-browser rather than via printing. Click the picture you go to our Advent Calendar.
