Niantic have announced two new elements coming to Pokémon GO. After being found in the datamine and listed in the app's update notes, Lucky Friends have been confirmed. Lucky Friends are a new level of friendship that can only occur when you're Best Friends. Each time you have your daily interaction with a Best Friend, you have a chance of becoming Lucky Friends and will have a note by them on your friend list and in their screen stating that they are Lucky Friends. With this, the next trade you make will be guaranteed to be a Lucky Trade and you will stop being Lucky Friends. There's no limit to how many Lucky Friends you can have at one time
They have also confirmed various poses will be added for Trainers. These alter the way your character stands in lists, your profile page and in battle akin to similar poses introduced in Pokémon Sun & Moon. You can obtain these poses in the shop for 500 coins per pose. We have updated our Style Section with all available poses
