It’s a competitive, battling kind of weekend for Trainers in Pokémon GO! For one day only, Trainers can take a break from the Pokémon TCG Crossover Event and bring their team of three Pokémon into GO Battle League. This time, Trainers can battle in more sets and get more Stardust rewards. Plus, for Trainers that win, if you time it just right you’ll get to encounter Mankey as the Pokémon reward encounter!
