Pokemon Go trading is important, especially when you consider that some Pokémon can only evolve through trading. You will, however, have to go through some hoops to make it happen.  Here's how you can swap Pokémon with a friend step by step. It will not require a Link-Cable like in Pokémon Red and Blue, but a friend and some spare Stardust will be required.

You'll have to do the same for your friend. Verify the trade. You will both see a screen that displays the stat range your friend's Pokémon will come with, as well as the amount of Stardust it will cost to complete the trade You can enjoy your Pokémon. Now you can trade each of your Pokémon, and you can use it like any other (though you can only trade the same Pokémon once).


A key part of Pokémon's identity is trading, and Pokémon Go is no exception. It is an excellent method for both leveling up your Pokedex and completing your Pokedex.  You should keep in mind that trading is influenced by your friendship level with the other player, which changes everything from the variance in their stats to how much the trade will cost. Therefore, if possible, trade with the people with whom you have the highest Friendship Level.  In addition, you can make up to 100 trades in a day, but only one can be a special trade. This includes trades involving Legendary, Shiny, or unregistered Pokémon (Pokémon not yet in your Pokedex). You now know how to make trades happen, so go explore the world and find new creatures to send to your friends and family.
