Go Battle League Season 2 has returned to Pokemon GO. It is obvious that the Trainers are thrilled to go back to the battle scene and perfect their skills for better results. The Leaderboard will not make its return to the game, but that will not stop the fun. To step that up, it looks like Niantic wants to implement a new kind of PvP challenge, according to the latest datamine.
In the datamine, there are references to a certain Premier Cup. We do not know yet what is this about, but there are some major hints dropped in the code. The codes show that it will be linked PvP tournaments that limit roster eligibility based on the timing of when Pokemon were caught by the trainer.
This is quite interesting to see it. Try to imagine it, Niantic hosting some kind of an event where there will be some unique spawns and bonuses, followed by a PvP tournament which will have a limit of how many Pokemon are caught during that event.
High attendance is guaranteed and it is a nice thing to keep players busy in this situation.
In addition, the world’s best dataminers discovered a text hinting at a Go Fest Special Research and Go Fest Elite Battle/Friendship/Skill Challenge.
Please keep in mind that this is not Niantic-official news, it is a piece of information coming from datamine, which may change any time.
