Trainer Battles are now live in Pokémon GO.

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.

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.

Until Next Time, See Ya
