It has been confirmed that Friends, Gifting and Trading is about to come to Pokémon GO later this week. You'll be able to connect with friends using a Trainer Code. With gifts, you may receive a gift from PokéStops which can contain eggs of Alolan Forms (which require 7km to hatch) and the ability to send a gift. You can't open the gift yourself but can send to friend. In addition to this, you can have a Friendship Level. This can be increased by trading and you use Stardust to trade so you need to have high stardust. Friend levels increase when you do various things with friends such as a gym battles and the higher your friend level, the more bonuses you can accrue. There are four levels of friendship: Good Friend - Trade Pokémon
Great Friend - Trade Pokémon - +1 Stardust Discount | +1 Premier Ball in Raids | +1 Attack Bonus
Ultra Friend - Trade Pokémon - +2 Stardust Discount | +2 Premier Ball in Raids | +2 Attack Bonus
Best Friend - Trade Pokémon - +3 Stardust Discount | +4 Premier Ball in Raids | +3 Attack Bonus
With trading, you will receive bonus candy for the Pokémon you trade away, with more candy being given if the Pokémon were caught far apart. When a Pokémon is traded, its IVs get rerolled but the better the Friend Level between you and your friend, the higher chance of keeping the same or close to the original IVs. Legendary Pokémon, Shiny Pokémon and Pokémon not in your Pokédex require a Special Trade. These can only occur once a day with a Great or Best Friend.
