Pokemon Go is a constantly changing game. Today Niantic announced that the level cap would increase to 50. They also announced that Seasons will be coming to the game as well. This isn’t the same seasons you see in Fortnite or Destiny 2.
Soon players will be experiencing the four seasons. Winter, spring, summer, and autumn will be changing how we catch certain types of Pokemon. Every three months the seasons will change in the game. Here are the features that will be coming with these changes.
- Different Pokémon will be appearing more often in the wild, hatching from Eggs, and appearing in raids. Some Pokémon will be more difficult to find depending on the season, so catch them while you can!
- Based on what hemisphere you’re in, you can find different Pokémon appearing in the wild each Season. For example, in the first Season, Pokémon-related to winter will be appearing in the wild in the northern hemisphere, while Burmy, Darumaka, and other Pokémon-related to summer will be appearing in the wild in the southern hemisphere. You might notice other differences in the Pokémon you can find in the wild, too.
- Also, different forms of Deerling will be appearing in the wild depending on which hemisphere you’re in, so keep a lookout!
- In-game events will be themed based on the Season they occur in!
GO Battle League will also get some changes with the introduction of Seasons. Players will now see rankings go from 10 to 24. More details on what these changes will mean to the league will be released at a later date. The first season will start on December 1st at 8 AM local time. This season will introduce players to a new Pokemon Go experience.
