For those uninitiated, or those who dropped the game long ago and have an interest in picking it back up, earlier today the friendship update was rolled out. Players can now trade codes that allow you to access new features, such as the long awaited Pokemon trading (unfortunately only if you are near each other), damage boosts during raids/gym battles as you rank your friendship up, and gifts that can be obtained through stops and sent to your new buddies (regardless of distance). More info on how this works can be found here.
The gift feature kinda acts like little care packages full of useful things like balls, revives, potions, evolution items, Alola eggs, and berries. This has the potential to be extremely useful for players in rural areas, or people who can’t walk much due to disability (like me).
I thought it would be nice to have a thread for those of us who are still playing to share our codes, and discuss our continuing adventures in real-world catching em’ all. Mine is 4715 0702 1195. Feel free to add me if you like.
