Niantic and The Pokémon company are beginning to roll out the GO Battle League to Trainers worldwide in Pokémon GO this week. This new type of battle builds upon Trainer Battles but now also gives players an opportunity to participate in contests with other Trainers around the world to battle up through the ranks.
As the GO Battle League becomes available in the weeks ahead, Trainers will be invited to join the preseason before the first official season of competitive play begins. In the preseason, Trainers will be able to battle, rank up and earn rewards.
Trainers will be encouraged to get out and explore the world by walking five kilometers to earn access to five battles in the GO Battle League. Through an online matchmaking system, Trainers will be paired up against competitors around the world of a similar rank and within the three leagues: the Great League, the Ultra League, and the Master League. As Trainers win, they will progress up through the ranks and earn valuable rewards—some of which may help them reach further heights in the GO Battle League.
In addition to the launch of the GO Battle League, Premium Raid Passes will be renamed to Premium Battle Passes. These passes can be used to enter Raid Battles or enter the premium track in the GO Battle League. On the premium track, Trainers will have a chance to earn better rewards when they win in battle.
