Towards the end of last year, we started to hear about a new GO Battle League feature for Pokemon GO. The feature involves player vs. player battling in which users walk in order to earn entry and then battle opponents from around the world in an online matching system.

Today, developer Niantic announced that GO Battle League will begin rolling out this week. A bunch of details were also provided in a new blog post.

Here’s the full rundown:

Niantic is mixing things up for the next Pokemon GO Community Day. Rather than having a set character, players will be able to vote on the Pokemon they want to see appear.

Vulpix, Machop, Rhyhorn, and Dratini have all been nominated. If you’re interested in voting, you’ll need to participate in Field Research tasks.

Here are the full details on everything that’s taking place:

Niantic has announced that it will kick off a new Lunar New Year event in Pokemon GO on January 24. Lasting through February 3, certain red Pokemon will be showing up more frequently. There are also plans for lucky bonuses and the appearance of Darumaka.
