Season of Discovery

Event

Starts:
Tuesday, June 1, at 10:00 AM Local Time
Ends:
Wednesday, September 1, at 10:00 AM Local Time

During the Season of Legends, the Therian Formes of Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus arrived in Pokémon GO, setting the stage for the Pokémon GO debuts of Xerneas and Yveltal! Trainers became legendary, and legends were told and made. Now, we’re excited to announce the next Season—the Season of Discovery—which will feature our fifth-anniversary celebrations and Pokémon GO Fest 2021!

From encountering Pokémon that have never appeared in Pokémon GO before, to discovering new things about the ones we’ve grown to know and love, this Season will be all about the spirit of discovery in Pokémon GO. The Season of Discovery will run from Tuesday, June 1, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. local time to Wednesday, September 1, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. local time!

Read on for an overview of what you can expect during this Season, and look out for a detailed blog once the Season starts.




Features

Be on the lookout for bonuses and items throughout the Season!

To kick off the Season of Discovery, you’ll receive a free Remote Raid Pass from Research Breakthrough rewards throughout June. Throughout the entire Season, you’ll also earn twice the XP from Research Breakthroughs as well!

Spawns

As the seasons change, different Pokémon will be appearing in different areas across the world! In cities, Pokémon such as Alolan Rattata, Magnemite, and Porygon will be appearing more frequently in the wild, while in far-off forests, Bellsprout, Doduo, Skorupi, and more will be appearing more frequently in the wild. The mountains are seeing shifts in Pokémon as well, with Rhyhorn, Nosepass, Dwebble, and more appearing more frequently, while Magikarp, Marill, Wailmer, and more will be appearing more frequently in the wild near bodies of water.

These and many more Pokémon will be appearing more often in the wild, so stay tuned for more details, Trainers!
