Pokémon GO: Pokéland, PvP, trading and Legendaries possibly nearing release

Niantic confirms: Legendary Pokémon, more team value and battles between players are coming this summer

Another Pokémon-related game looms with the release of the alpha version of Pokéland in Japan. It technically becomes the third mobile game related to Pokémon GO though its availability in other regions remains unknown.

Another Pokémon game hoping to flourish

Pokéland is technically the mobile version of Pokémon Rumble for the Wii game console. It includes six islands with 52 levels where the goal for players is to catch as many pocket monsters now portrayed as toys, Attack of the Fan Boy reported. The game requires and Internet connection and comes with provisions that allows it to be existing Nintendo accounts and their respective Mii characters.

Pokéland is expected to be launched for both Android and iOS versions in Japan with developers yet to announce if it would also be offered for the North America and European markets. A better picture of where the mobile game would be available should shape up once it is officially release before 2017 comes to a close.

Pokéland could up the stakes a bit when it comes to Pokémon-related games, a lot of which would depend on the critters appearing for the said game. Magikarp Jump has already been branded as an addictive new game for the pocket monster that has been practically ignored on Pokémon GO.

PvP and Legendaries finally coming?

The verdict on how Pokéland and Magikarp Jump is still up there though there are some more concerned about the updates ahead for Pokémon GO. The augmented reality game continues to have logged on players though most want to see the promised features which were mentioned before the Gen 2 update.

This is with reference to the PvP and Legendaries which have yet to be rolled out. Niantic VP of strategic partnerships Mathieu de Fayet mentioned in a newspaper that these features were scheduled to launch earlier but Pokémon GO’s success meant they had to be delayed, Game Spot reported.

Niantic had previously teased the coming of Legendaries for Pokémon GO along with the PvP and Pokémon trading feature as something possibly coming out somewhere between June to September. If everything goes according to schedule, the long wait for the rares may finally be over – same with the long-coveted features.
