Over the last several days the official Pokémon GO twitter account has been teasing the next most requested feature for the game: Player versus Player. Trainer battles are still teased as “coming soon,” but we finally got some official screenshots and a few choice details on how they’ll work.
Three new Battle Leagues will be available for PvP Trainer battles: Great, Ultra, and Master, named after the PokéBalls. Each Battle League restricts which Pokémon you can use to a maximum CP amount. For the Great League the max CP per Pokémon is 1,500. Ultra League is 2,500 and Master really takes the wheels off with no max CP limit at all.
You’ll want to start organizing and preparing your team to get just under the values of those leagues. A Battle League team is made up of three Pokémon.
Here’s a breakdown of each Battle League’s requirements:

“When designing Trainer Battles, we wanted to create an experience that everyone can enjoy and ensure that different kinds of Pokémon can show their strengths,” states the official Pokémon GO twitter account. “With Leagues in Trainer Battles, we hope to create a system that’s accessible to many Trainers.”
That’s all the information we know so far on Battle Leagues. We don’t yet know how Trainers will be able to start these battles or what rewards will be offered.
Pokémon GO recently added the Adventure Sync. The Adventure Sync lets you sync the game’s walking speed with your smartphone, allowing you to hatch eggs and find Buddy candy without opening the app. Adventure Sync is enabled in the Settings menu.
