Pokemon Go developer Niantic released this statement about the imminent release of the Trainer Battles.

“The fast-paced battles take place in real time, and your Pokemon will be able to use both their Fast Attack and Charged Attack moves.

“You’ll also be able to use Stardust and Candy prior to battle to unlock a bonus Charged Attack for your Pokemon.

“Battles aren’t just about who has the toughest Pokémon and the strongest moves – timing is important, too.

“If you keep an eye on your opponent’s moves, you may be able to deploy a Protect Shield to save your Pokemon from taking critical damage.

“But you only have a limited number of Protect Shields before your Pokémon will be left defenceless against big attacks.

“Your opponent will usually have to be nearby for you to initiate a Trainer Battle.

“But you can challenge Trainers you’re Ultra Friends or Best Friends with from any distance.”
