How to solve the topic “Fight side by side with your friend on the road”

In Pokémon GO, you can face another new mission or mission in the Field Research in June. One of them is “Fight alongside your comrade on the road.” We at MeinMMO show you how you can solve this task.

What is this task? If you spin your PokéStops image discs in Pokémon GO, you’ll receive what’s called a field search. These are the tasks that appear to you in the “field” view of the game that give you a reward when you solve them.

Each month, Niantic reviews these missions and rewards or adds them to special events. You can now face the mission “Fight side by side with your friend on the road” in Field Research for the month of June. We’ll show you what to look for when you solve.

So you can solve the new task with your friend

What is so special about this mission? Until now, tasks around the friend have included interacting, going for a walk together, or finding a certain number of candy. Now you also have to get into a fight with your friend. But solving the task is not so easy.

If you look around on social networks, it quickly becomes clear to you that every possibility of fighting in the game will not solve the task either. So that you don’t have any major issues with it, we’ll show you how it works.

Pokemon GO: How do I play with my friend? This is how it’s done!

You have to keep this in mind when solving the task “Fight side by side with your friend while you are on the road”.

As per the attempts of the reddit community, it is clear that the solution to this quest only works in GO Battle league battles or in training against team leaders Blanche, Candela or Spark. To do this, you must first take your friend on an expedition and then do one of the mentioned battles with him.

So the best way to solve it is as follows:

  1. Feed your friend so that he is finally on the environment map and goes to explore with you.
  2. Open the menu via the Poké Ball button and click on “Fights”.
  3. Now you can either join a battle in the GO Battle League or do a training battle against a team leader.
  4. GO Battle League: Under GO Battle League, tap on the Battle button. You can now select a league and then assemble your team. Here you have to choose your friend in any case. It is best to use it as your first Pokemon.
  5. Training battle: Scroll to the bottom of the page until you see pictures of Blanche, Candela, and Spark. Choose one of the three and then select League. Now you can add your friend to your chosen team.
  6. Now execute the respective battle and you have already completed the task.

attention: If you have a companion who has a high CP number, then depending on the value, it cannot be used in all tournaments. Depending on which league is currently active in the GO Battle League, it is possible that you may not be able to use your Pokémon in battle at all. In this case you have to resort to a training battle. There are the following WP limits:

  • Super League up to 1500 WP per Pokemon
  • Hyper League Up to 2500 WP per Pokemon
  • Master League Unlimited CP per Pokemon

What about the other battles? Other fights, such as arena fights or fights against Team GO Rocket, haven’t counted for this mission yet, according to comments on reddit. The task cannot be solved even with PvP battles between two friendly bosses. So you should use GO Battle League or Training Battles to solve it.

What reward awaits you? If you solve the task, you will be rewarded with a meeting with Smogon or Bluzuk. With a bit of luck, you may come across a great specimen.

Are there more of these new quests for a friend?

Another friends mission available as part of Adventure Week is “Win 3 Candies by Exploring with Your Friend”. However, this is basically just a different formulation from the well-known task of going for a walk with your friend and collecting candy.

How do you solve this quest? Just as with the combat mission, you must feed your friend first and take it with you on an expedition. Now all you have to do is run until your monster finds the required number of candies.

This can vary depending on the Pokémon, as each monster has to travel a different distance to find the candy. Some Pokémon only have to travel 1 kilometer, while others have to travel 3 kilometres, 5 kilometers or even 20 kilometres.

Use this trick: In order not to have to stay on the road forever to collect the desired candy, you must first look at your friend’s history. You may have already covered a good portion of the distance with Pokemon in the past and only need a few meters to reach the next candy.

In this case, it is better to use Knursp in advance for feeding. This allows your friend to find a candy halfway away. So if you are a few meters away from the original distance, you will receive two candy bars.

If you don’t have a Pokemon in your friends’ history that you can use for this purpose, refer to a short-range monster. Pokemon like Rattfratz or Taubebsi are perfect here because they only have to walk a kilometer to find the candy.

What is the bonus there? If you solve this task, then during the week of adventure you will have a meeting with Galapaflos or Flapteryx, which can be impressive with a little luck.
