The mechanic has not gone live just yet but will likely get used when future generations make their way in to Pokemon Go in future updates as it was a very big mechanic in the past.
This mechanic was originally introduced back in Pokemon Diamond/Pearl on the Nintendo DS in 2006 so it is great to see it come to the mobile game!
If we have any more information to share we will cover it here at NintendoSoup so stay tuned for more!
