Sending gifts or participating in battles can increase a player's Friendship Level and this allows the opportunity to unlock new bonuses e.g. an increased attack level during battles. Players can increase their Friendship Level once per day per friend.
If you’re near a friend and have a Trainer Level of 10 or higher, you can trade Pokémon you’ve caught with that friend. Completing a trade earns a bonus {{bp|Candy (GO)|Candy}} for the Pokémon you’ve traded away. In addition, this bonus increases if players trade Pokémon that were caught far away from each other. Trades are powered by {{bp|Stardust (GO)|Stardust}}, and some trades require more Stardust than others. Higher Friendship Levels means that trades can be completed using less Stardust.
A Special Trade ({{bp|Legendary Pokémon}}, a {{bp|Shiny Pokémon}}, or a Pokémon not currently in a player's {{bp|Pokédex}}) only occur once per day with a Great Friend or Best Friend and requires a lot of Stardust to complete.
