Pokemon Go has allowed players several weeks to practice their battling skills in the live arena that is the Pokemon Go Battle League. It will not be long until fans get a full taste of ranked competitive play in the Pokemon world as the league goes live in only a couple weeks. Players will get full access to the Battle League as of Friday, March 13, at 1:00 P.M. PST.

The preseason has been a positively received event that has given many trainers a full taste of battle. If you have not had a chance to try the penalty-free event, it is still live for the moment and still giving out rewards to ambitious trainers.

Any trainer who achieved a rank of 4 or higher during the preseason will be receiving Premium Battle Passes. This is meant as a thank you to players from Niantic as they work to continue to improve the Pokemon Go Battle System. If you have been participating, you may have noticed that starting yesterday, all three leagues have been available to play for all trainers.

The three leagues are the Great League, Ultra League, and Master League. Each one offers a different CP level of Pokemon to enter allowing for trainers of all skill levels to participate in the event. The Great League will begin March 13 and run until March 27. The Ultra League will begin on March 27 and run until April 10. The Master League will start on April 10 and run until April 24. Between April 24 and May 1, all leagues will be available for additional ranking.

New events, Legendary and Mythical Pokemon, will be making their way to the GO Battle League. There is tons happening behind the scenes as Niantic continues to improve the competitive feature and perfect it for the Pokemon community.

This first season is going to have a massive impact on the future competitive nature of Pokemon Go. As players gather stronger Pokemon and craft better competitive teams, the game will have to constantly adapt and change for the ever-growing community. Balance concerns and more will be rampant throughout the game with the introduction of even more Pokemon every year.

That being said, this has been a feature wanted by the Pokemon community for a long time. Players are actively training and battling it out and having an authentic Pokemon experience through their mobile devices. Not much else could be done by Niantic to give an even better experience to fans, yet the developers still work tirelessly to perfect the game.

Pokemon Go is available on iOS and Android devices. For more information, check out the game’s main blog or Twitter feed.
