For the PvP battle to begin, both the players will be required to assemble a league of three Pokemon's in a similar fashion as they are required to do in Gym and Raid battles.

If you're not nearby a friend and you'd still like to fight them, you can do so if you're ultra friends or best friends within the game.

If you're above level 10 in the game, you can now fight in what the game refers to as Trainer Battles, which are different to the gym and raid fights that have previously been included in Pokemon Go. Publisher Niantic Labs on Thursday started rolling out the PvP mode that was initially limited to level 40 players.

Attention: Level 10 will be the lowest level of Trainers that can access this feature.

And there you have it, Trainer Battles are indeed coming sometime soon.

To challenge nearby trainers, players will need to open their "Battle" tab which is found in the "Nearby" menu, which will then show a Battle Code, which the other player must scan or vice versa. "Your selected team of Pokemon will be able to execute both their Fast Attack and Charged Attack moves".

The entire PvP system, unlike battles against Team Leaders, is contained within your Friend list, as part of your main Trainer screen. "In preparation for battle, you'll even be able to use Stardust and Candy to unlock a bonus Charged Attack for your Pokemon". Also, the selected characters can be switched between the three mid-battle.

There is an ability to deploy a Protect Shield to protect your Pokemon from critical damage when you're keeping an eye on your opponent's moves. Both players in a battle receive rewards, including rare Evolution items such as new Sinnoh Stones.
