The Season of Legends has officially begun in Pokémon GO. The second-ever Season is focused on legends in the game, which includes both the greatest trainers and Legendary Pokémon. With the new Season, Niantic announced a series of new events that Trainers can expect in March and forward.
The Season of Legends begun on March 1 and, like the previous Season of Celebration, will run for 3 months, ending on June 1. Some featured Pokémon have already rolled out in-game, like Incarnate Forme Landorus and Tornadus in 5-star Raids.
The Therian Forme Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus will become available in Pokémon GO for the first time in the upcoming weeks.
Other than new Legendaries, the Season also brings several exciting new events. The first one, starting on March 9, will be the Searching for Legends event.
The Searching for Legends event will run from March 9 at 10:00 a.m. to March 14 at 8:00 a.m. local time.
The event will feature the Compass Pokémon – Nosepass, along with a variety of Ground-, Rock-, and Steel-type Pokémon.
The event will also mark the first time Shiny Nosepass becomes available for lucky Trainers. To earn encounters with Nosepass and other event Pokémon, Trainers will have access to an event-exclusive Field Research task and Timed Research during the event.
Other than Nosepass, some of the featured Pokémon will include Diglett, Geodude, Magnemite, Aron, Baltoy, Roggenrola, Drilbur, and more.
Alolan Diglett, Alolan Geodude, Magnemite, Nosepass, Aron, Lairon, Beldum, Roggenrola, Drilbur, and more will be attracted to Incense during the Searching for Legends event.
The event 5 km Eggs will hatch Nosepass, Aron, Baltoy, Beldum, and Drilbur.
Raids will also be featuring event Pokémon, including Alolan Diglett, Nosepass, Roggenrola, Drilbur, Ferroseed, and Klink in one-star raids and Alolan Graveler, Magneton, Skarmory, and Metang in three-star raids.
After the Searching for Legends (and a Shiny Nosepass), Trainers can look forward to other exciting new events that the Season of Legends will bring.
Incense Day featuring Psychic- and Steel-type Pokémon will take place on March 14. The previous Incense Days featured different types of Pokémon during different hours of the day being attracted to Incense. This time around, the Incense Day spotlight will be on Beldum, a dual-type Steel/Psychic Pokémon.
From March 16 to March 22, a celebration of Electric-type Pokémon will be taking place in Pokémon GO. According to Niantic, Electric-type Pokémon will make their Pokémon GO debut. It is not yet announced which Pokémon will be joining, but there are several unreleased Electric-type Pokémon from the generations that are already in the game.
One of the contenders is Rotom from Generation IV (Sinnoh). Known as the Plasma Pokémon, it can change its appearance based on various electronic gadgets. However, Rotom has already made its limited appearance as a Wash Rotom, a dual Electric/Water type, during the 2020 Pokémon Go Fest.
Aside from Wash Rotom, other unreleased forms include Normal, Heat, Frost, Fan, and Mow.
From generation V (Unova) there’s an unreleased Electric-type evolutionary line of Tynamo. Tynamo evolves into Eelektrik and finally into Eelektross. As most Unova Pokémon are already in the game, Niantic would likely take another step to complete the Unova Pokédex. The latest Unova addition to Pokémon GO was Munna and its evolution Musharna last month.
That brings us to Generation VI (Kalos), the latest region from the Pokémon world to come to Pokémon GO. From Kalos, the unreleased Electric types include Helioptile, a dual-type Electric/Normal Pokémon and its evolution, Heliolisk; and Dedenne, an Electric/Fairy-type Pokémon.
It remains to be seen which Pokémon Niantic chooses to release next, but a new addition to Pokédex is always exciting for a Trainer.
To celebrate the release of the Therian Formes of Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus, a Weather Week will be held from March 24 to March 29. During the event week, weather-themed Pokémon will be appearing in the wild and Trainers will get the chance to obtain new avatar items.
The Season of Legends is already shaping up to be an interesting and exciting period in Pokémon GO. From the new Legendary Pokémon to several events, there will be much to keep Trainers occupied for the coming months.
The Pokémon GO Fest has been an integral part of the game since 2017, when the first-ever GO Fest ...
