Last night, November 23, we were expecting the most recent remote trading test to end, but to our surprise, Pokémon GO tweeted an extension of the test! It will now continue through November 30 at 1 pm PST.
The distance has been ‘increased a lot‘, to quote, and at this time it is speculated that the distance is between 40 and 50 km, although reports vary.
Report your findings in the comments and let us know how far you’ve managed to trade.
Now is a great time to safely trade with your fellow coaches and finally make some of those outstanding and lucky special trades that we all seem to have overdue thanks to the pandemic. Special trades can only be done once a day, but you can do as many lucky friend trades as you want until you reach that trade limit of 100 trades per day.
With plenty of time until November 30, now is the perfect time to schedule daily special operations until the end of this test. Message your fellow coaches and get organized!
We are intrigued to see how this test will be implemented in the future and if the distance could be increased in the future. It has certainly proven to be a very popular addition to the game so far!
This has not been mentioned on your blog or in game news, so be sure to spread the word within your local community so they can take full advantage of this increased trading range!
