Niantic drar tillbaka en av de nya utannonserade funktionerna när det gäller duller, PvP. Den nya bytesfunktionen (switch) för att byta Pokémons dras tillbaka och det blir en återgång till den tidigare funktionen, meddelar Niantic.

Enligt Niantic så kändes inte den nya funktionen naturlig och intuitiv:

July 11, 2019 UPDATE: In an effort to improve your competitive experience, the new switching Pokémon mechanic has been removed from Trainer Battles. We strive to make Trainer Battles intuitive and strategic, and we do not feel this change has met that bar.

While the original implementation had unintended behavior, we’ve been impressed at the depth of gameplay created by real-time switching against incoming attacks. We still plan on fixing what we consider polish issues of Pokémon being able to attack and be attacked during switching animations. Moving forward, we also plan on more deliberately supporting the emergent strategy that has come from the old switching behavior.

Rather than retaining the new behavior, until we can better support this mechanic we’ve decided the best experience would be to return to the previous game rules. We appreciate the community’s passion and dedication to Trainer Battles. Stay tuned for more updates as we work to provide a competitive and fun battle experience. We will continue to keep your feedback in mind for future releases.

Nyheten torde välkomnar av spelarna då den nya funktionen där spelet gör en paus medan du funderar på vilken Pokémon du vill byta till fått bitvis hård kritik.
