Attention all Trainers! We have some exciting news to share with you. The highly-anticipated Party Play feature is finally available to all players who have reached level 15 or above. This new and innovative feature transforms the collaborative experience of playing Pokémon GO by allowing you to team up with up to three other trainers. Together, you can embark on a shared adventure that will take your gameplay to the next level. Furthermore, the game has also released a new Welcome Party Special Research, and with the help of the community, we now a list of tasks and rewards.
So what exactly can you do with Party Play? For starters, you and your fellow Trainers will appear on the same in-game map, turning your solo quests into true team efforts. You’ll have options to either host your own party or join someone else’s. But that’s not all, you’ll also tackle Party Challenges together, completing tasks for awesome rewards.
There’s a brand-new mechanic involved, Party Power. Every Fast Attack you perform builds up your Party Power. Once it’s charged, your next Charged Attack will pack twice the punch. Talk about teamwork making the dream work.
In celebration of this launch, Niantic and Pokémon GO have rolled out a Special Research Welcome Party. Aimed at getting you kitted out for your new team adventures, this Research is your ticket to snagging some exclusive Eevee-themed T-shirts.
