Pokémon Go Season of Heritage: Teaser, release dates, rewards, and new Pokémons
Trainers, the official Pokémon GO Twitter page has teased a new Pokémon GO season.
Here’s the teaser:
The Season of Heritage, the next season of Pokémon Go, begins on December 1, and developer Niantic teases a study of the Pokémon franchise’s past, similar to the next big game in the franchise, Pokémon Legends: Arceus. On Tuesday, Niantic revealed the first details about Pokémon Go’s Season of Heritage, defining the game’s events for the next three months.
Any mention of Pokémon Legends: Arceus, which will be released on Nintendo Switch in January, is conspicuously absent from Niantic’s statement. Willow, the resident professor of Pokémon Go, claims to have discovered an ancient relic: a door with three enigmatic locks. With three months left in the season and three Team Leaders delivering monthly timed research, it’s safe to anticipate that finding out what’s beyond the door will take some time.
Only one new Pokémon is confirmed to make an appearance in Pokémon Go this season: Druddigon will make his debut on December 7 as part of the game’s Dragonspiral Descent special event. More new Pokémon and Hisuian evolutions from Pokémon Legends: Arceus could be introduced, including Wyrdeer, Basculegion, and Hisuian Growlithe, as well as Kleavor and Hisuian Zorua.
A pair of undetermined Community Days for Season of Heritage in January and February, as well as the Pokémon Go Tour: Johto event, which will wrap up the new season on February 26-27, 2022, are also on the horizon for Pokémon Go. (Earlier this year, Niantic held a Pokémon Go Tour: Kanto event, which was a paid event focusing on the first generation of Pokémon.)
A fresh generation of Pokémon is missing from the new season. Unlike the previous two years, when Niantic added Unova-region Pokémon in 2019 and Kalos-region Pokémon in 2020, the Alola Pokédex does not appear to be coming to Pokémon Go this year. Given that just roughly half of the Kalos Pokédex is now available in Pokémon Go, this isn’t surprising. They also didn’t say anything about Kecleon.
