Add Turn-Based Battles to Pokemon Go

Pokemon GO is a dream come true...almost! I love going out and catching Pokémon, but the fun of battling other trainers in classic combat is a blight on your game, without which the PoGo experience doesn't feel satisfying.

I understand that turn-based combat may be a bit of a turn-off for the super-casual players who don't want to commit to anything more than tapping and swiping a phone (though there's a place for that), but a sizable portion of the PoGo fanbase--and, I'd guess, most of the more devoted players--wish this fundamental feature was present. Even if it was basically an optional add-on that didn't have bearing on leveling up, gym acquisition, or strengthening CP scores, having the option to enter into a trainer battle with my friends is the only way my--and many other people's--PoGo experience would become the satisfying trainer adventure it was always meant to be.
