Niantic has announced that 2 new features will be coming to Pokémon GO in a update soon: Lucky Friends and avatar poses.

Lucky Friends and avatar poses! Let’s GO!

Trainers, We have some exciting updates coming to Pokémon GO to give you even more ways to play and customize your journey!

Lucky Friends
When you are Lucky Friends with someone, the next time you trade with each other, both Pokémon will become Lucky Pokémon!

How do you become Lucky Friends? Once you become Best Friends, you will have a chance to become Lucky Friends! You will have this chance once per day when you and your Best Friend trade Pokémon, open a Gift from each other, team up in raids and Gym battles, or challenge each other to a Trainer Battle.

How do I know if my Best Friend is now a Lucky Friend? Similar to when you level up your friendships, you and your Best Friend will receive a notification when you have become Lucky Friends. You’ll also be able to see that they’re your new Lucky Friend in your Friend List and on their friend profile page.

After completing the trade, your Lucky Friend status will return to Best Friend status. Don’t worry, Trainers—by doing the same steps, you can try to become Lucky Friends again!

Avatar Poses
Ready to stand out at the Gym or on your Friend List? We are introducing avatar poses that will allow you to customize how your Trainer is posed on your Trainer profile, in the Friend List, in raid lobbies, in Gyms, and in battle previews. Once you acquire an avatar pose, it will be available on your account for both male and female Trainer avatars.

Thanks for continuing to adventure with us, Trainers. We are excited to bring you new customizations and features for the game. Happy exploring!

The official Pokémon movie website has updated. Translations follow:

Theme Song

image


Theme song:
"Kaze to issho ni"
(Sony Music Records)
Vocals: Sachiko Kobayashi & Shoko Nakagawa

The ending theme song for "Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution", which premieres Friday July 12th, has been decided!
The super mighty team of Sachiko Kobayashi and Shoko Nakagawa as vocalists and Seiji Kameda as arranger will be handling "Kaze to issho ni".

"Kaze to issho ni", which was sung by Sachiko Kobayashi back in the monumental first Pokémon movie, "Pocket Monsters the Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back",
is now being reborn as a collaboration with Shoko Nakagawa arranged by Seiji Kameda,
and will get released as a single on July 10th.

It's also been decided that we'll be sending out a call for applications for a "Pokémon Kids 2019" group that will sing "Kaze to issho ni" alongside Sachiko Kobayashi and Shoko Nakagawa.
Those selected for the group will participate in the recording of "Kaze to issho ni", and will also be able to participate in subsequent activities related to this movie and its music.




Comments:

Sachiko Kobayashi:
It has been 21 years since I first encountered the wonderful song called "Kaze to issho ni".
Being able to once again depict the wonderful world of Pokémon with this song after all these years makes me feel very happy.
I put my whole heart into this song so that both the adults that heard this song as children and today's children will be filled with warm thoughts when they hear it.
It would make me very happy if everyone of all ages were to feel the same way they felt back then when they hear this song.

Shoko Nakagawa:
I encountered the Pokémon movies 21 years ago, back when I was a child. Even after becoming an adult, I've walked hand in hand with my memories of them.
This time, Pokémon has given me a "miracle far beyond my dreams" by having me reach both today's and future children through song!
I put a lot of affection into this song as I sang it together with the voice of Sachiko Kobayashi-san, whom I greatly admire.
And I'm really looking forward to singing this song that will be sung throughout the ages together with children that love Pokémon.
