Pokemon GO trainer battles are now live (for some players)

Last week we did a deep dive on how Pokemon GOs new (and long overdue) player-versus-player battle system would work. The only thing we didnt know at the time was when, exactly, it would actually start rolling out.
The answer: tonight.
Just a few days ago, Niantic started shipping an update to the app that contained everything required for PvP, but theyd yet to actually flip the switch to turn it on. According to a tweet that just went live from the Pokemon GO account, it seems said switches have just been flipped:

Calling all level 40 Trainers. Your time has come to #GOBattle? Trainers of lower levels, please stand by, as we will be rolling Trainer Battles out to more levels soon.
