5 features from Pokemon Legends: Arceus that should return in Scarlet and Violet

Pokémon Go has strict PvP and PvE environments, although there is one aspect of the mobile title's gameplay that mixes the two.  These are gym battles, where players can drop their Pokémon to defend their team's gym while other trainers attempt to take over the gym for their team.

Togekiss

Togekiss, like Blissey, is a fairy/flying-type Pokemon with a lot of heaviness in Pokemon GO.  However, this is only the beginning of Jubilee Pokemon.

This Pokémon Go game mode mixes PvP and PvE in a certain sense.  Trainers pit their Pokémon against each other, like in Go Battle League, but only one trainer is actively controlling their Pokémon.

If the defender loses, the attacker moves on to the next one until all defenders have been ejected from the gym.  However, some Pokémon defend gyms better than their counterparts, and they deserve attention.

Metagross

Metagross has long been considered one of Pokémon Go's best steel-types, thanks to its impressive stats and an excellent array of moves.  This makes it a natural fit not only as a gym defender but also as a competitor in raids and in various PvP battle leagues.
