Ingame player status ( online / offline )


#1

Ever wanna battle a friend that is in another country? Don’t know if their on or off?

With a simple online/offline feature, players will be able to tell if someone is available for battle.

Can even include a ghost mode so people wont bother you.

  • Yes we need online/offline/ghost
  • No

Don’t people already do this with their buddy??


#3

Some people do that, yes. But it’s quite annoying to change the Buddy’s name everytime.


#4

Name changing buddy is the bootleg version of this.

A simple green dot next to name would suffice.


#5

Agree with @Jormdeworm. I do not change nicknames.


#6

it’s so stupid because we have to do it every time we get on then


#7

I didnt even know I could change nicknames.


#8

Open Pokémon Go and select a Pokemon. On the right side of it’s name is a pencil. Click on that. (In the picture, next to Raikou.)


#9

Oh nvm, I know that, I tought there was a way to change the nickname of a friend. ( my bad )


#10

Also possible. :blush:


#11

Ok , thanks :slightly_smiling_face:


#12

Not only do I want this, but it would be very easy to implement.

I voted no because as nice as it might be to have that awareness, it would add a bunch of network traffic just to propagate updates throughout the world’s servers. And there are already more than enough game-play related features that merit addition and have their own runtime overhead.

It would also nudge the game more towards social-networking functionality, when Discord seems to fill that role pretty nicely, by itself.
