So its been confirmed by John Hanke (Niantic Labs' CEO) , that trading will be added to Pokemon Go in a future update. He even went as far as saying it will be a 'core element' of the game. I am 100% behind some sort of trading being added to Pokemon Go. But gaining the ability to trade with anyone anywhere in the world will essentially nullify part of the game's core... which is hunting down Pokemon in the real world. I had this discussion with a friend, and we both believe that there will have to be major restrictions on how trading works. Maybe when you trade a Pokemon its CP resets to zero. Or you can only trade with someone by meeting them in person. The way trading is implemented into the game may have big implications on the Perfect Pokemon community, so I'm curious about what do you guys think? What is the best way for Niantic to implement trading in Pokemon Go?
