Battle Party Feature is Now Live

  • Battle Party feature is now in beta testing, and yes, there are some bugs, but we hope to see those bugs fixed soon. For those who are not familiar with what this feature is, I’ve got your back – “Battle parties allow you to choose up to six Pokémon to quickly select for Gym and Raid Battles. You might have a favorite set of Pokémon that you always bring to battle with you, or maybe you have a few Pokémon that deal significant damage against Raid Boss Pokémon. Battle parties make selecting your preferred Pokémon fast and easy.”
  • In addition, here is how to create a Battle Party:
  1. Map view – select Main Menu,
  2. Select Pokemon button,
  3. Then select Party tab,
  4. And for last go on the Create Party button, and you are all set.

Now you have a list of news and updates in Pokemon Go. I hope this will come out handy for you, to understand and learn more. Thanks for reading and Catch em’ All!
