'Pokemon Go' Latest News: Details Of Pokemon Trading System Confirmed By CEO
Several details about the latest "Pokemon Go Trading System" has been revealed. The information came from Niantic CEO John Hanke.
One of the highly anticipated features that fans are looking forward to is the "Pokemon Go Trading System." It was previously confirmed by Niantic that the feature would be introduced soon. However, that is the only information given out, the company has been very silent leaving players to speculate and give educated predictions about the said feature.
The "Pokemon Go Trading System" is a process wherein players will have the chance to trade items or Pokemon with other players in the game. Recently, Niantic CEO John Hanke according to some report has revealed interesting details about the upcoming feature.
Otakukart reported that during Niantic's presentation in the recently concluded Mobile World Congress the CEO gave out some pertinent information. In fact, Hanke himself explained that contrary to what most players believe, the "Pokemon Go Trading System" would not be done through the Internet. The CEO is basically referring to the core mechanic of the entire system.
It appears that Niantic will introduce the much-awaited feature in a different light with that statement coming from its CEO. As a general belief, players thought all the while that the "Pokemon Go Trading System" like any other trading system could be executed as long as Internet connection is available. Apparently, this is not the case.
In addition, Hanke underlined that for the "Pokemon Go Trading System" to work, players who will execute the trade must be within the same proximity. As to what that proximity technically means for Niantic is still unknown. However, the surest thing about the upcoming feature is that someone 100 miles away apart could never trade to another player given that far distance.
If we base on the company's most recent pronouncement about the "Pokemon Go Trading System," then apparently it would not be a worldwide simultaneous activity. As Hanke added that to initiate the trade, players must be close to each other. In a way, it appears that what the company wants is a real-life trading activity.
