50km is the new range for trades in Pokemon GO after Niantic Labs increased the trade limit again. The new range will be available until Nov. 23 at 7 p.m. ET. The trade range is now 50 km or 31 miles. As with the last distance increase, Niantic Labs is testing out the new system. This will allow them to see if their servers can handle it and how it impacts the game.
Obviously, Pokemon GO was meant to be an interactive game where players and communities come together to defeat and catch Pokemon.
50km Trade Limit: Pokemon GO Increases Trade Limit Again
Everyone has tried to shift gears and create a safer place for gamers to play their product amid the COVID-19 pandemic and that means Pokemon GO has become more of a remote game. Players have had the ability to raid from home and now the trade range has increased, hopefully, allowing friends and family to trade in relative safety.
There is a small chance that Niantic Labs was going to test something similar before COVID was a known problem as the game became less geolocational. Certain Pokémon started shifting places around the world, giving everyone a better opportunity to catch them all.
