Pokémon GO

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
