You won't go alone anymore.

Pokemon GO released back in 2016, and its revolutionary adoption of augmented reality took the world by storm. Since then, developer and publisher Niantic added countless features, improvements, legendary Pokemon, and much more content for players to experience. Earlier in March, the mobile game received an update adding several events, and chances to receive the legendary shadow Pokemon Entei as well. Now, the studio will finally allow players to invite players to help out in completing Raid Battles, and stickers to send along with your gifts.

Pokemon GO's upcoming update will let players invite their friends over to complete raids together. You will be able to invite a maximum of five players to Raid Battles at first, and you can create public and private lobbies to control who you want to play with. Those who were hoping to give this highly anticipated feature a try before Legendary Pokémon Reshiram leaves raids won't get the chance to do so, unfortunately. However, the studio revealed they will bring it back in the future to give players another chance to face up against the Vast White Pokémon alongside their friends.

This isn't all for Pokemon GO's upcoming update, as those who love giving gifts to other players will now have the freedom to personalize their gifts a bit more. The game will allow you to attach a sticker to your gift, and once the update rolls out, you will get a bunch of them for free right away. At launch, only five stickers will be available, and they are consumable. This means you will only get to use each sticker once so make sure to use them carefully and choose wisely who you want them sent to. We will definitely see a plethora of stickers added later on to the game's store, and the studio might even run a few competitions to get players to design their own. Who knows?

Will you invite friends to your Pokemon GO raid squad? What other features do you wish to see come to the title soon? Let us know your thoughts and suggestions in the comments section down below.
