Pokemon Go is adding some friend-focused features.

Pokemon Go is still going strong, and trainers will be able to enjoy new features in the coming months.

Gift Stickers will allow you to personalise the gifts you send to friends, while you'll also be able to invite friends to raids - regardless of their location.

New Features Coming To Pokemon Go

In a new blog post on the Pokemon Go website, the team explained that when gift stickers are added, you'll get some stickers for free with the rest earned by opening gifts of your own.

"At launch, there will be five stickers available. You can use a sticker only once, so be sure to stock up on more by opening Gifts. In the future, you’ll be able to purchase some designs from the shop."

When it comes to raids, Niantic explains that in public and private raids you'll be able to tap a new "+" button to invite up to five friends. 

"Your friends will be able to see raid invitations on their Nearby screen or in push notifications. These invitations will allow them to enter the raid lobby. Your friends will use a pass only once the battle starts, not when they join the lobby."

There's no ETA on raid invites, but it will arrive after Reshiram has left raids - although Niantic assures fans it'll be bac, in the future.
