Season of GO

Season of GO is Pokémon GO’s next season and it lasts from June 1 at 10 a.m. – September 1 at 10 a.m. local time. The main actor of Season of GO is Rhi, a mysterious stranger that is a member of the GO Ultra Recon Squad.

Season of GO brings increased damage for remote Raiding, Friendship bonus damage for raiders, and bonuses for trading, much easier acquisition of Candy XL and boosted PokéStop interactions.

They also seem to know a lot about Ultra Wormholes. Who is this enigmatic stranger? How can they help us with the Ultra Beasts? We’ll just have to play along and see where this takes us…

GO Battle League Season 11

Pokémon GO Battle League PvP

The GO Battle League is back with Season 11! With new cups like the Fossil Cup, the Summer Cup, and GO Fest Catch Cup to play in and the 2022 Pokémon World Championships coming in August, there’s never been a better time to get into the GO Battle League.

GO Battle League Season 11 will start on Wednesday, June 1, 2022, at 1:00 p.m. PDT (GMT −7), and the following will occur at the beginning of the Season:

  • End-of-season rewards will be available on the battle screen.
  • Your GO Battle League rank will be reset.
  • Rank-up requirements will remain the same as in Season 10.

Season 11 Schedule features a weekly rotating set of Cups and Leagues, so there’s plenty of things to do and metas to compete in during the entire Summer. We hope this Summer will drive more players to partake in the Pokémon GO Regional Championship tournaments

Get out there, test your mettle against other Trainers, and see how far you can advance in the seasonal rankings!

Season overview

With GO Battle League Season 11 on the way, and the recently teased release of Ultra Beasts, it seems like Niantic is preparing a fairly exciting Summer of GO. We are quite happy to see increased damage for Remote Raiders – it seems to fit the general Ultra Wormhole exploration nicely.

Earlier acquisition of Candy XL is also much appreciated, and will definitely help lower level players catch up with Level 40+ Trainers. We do know that Candy XL is a valuable, albeit underutilised, resource, and we’re happy this change has been implemented.

Community Days fall onto reasonable dates as well – it remains to be seen which Pokémon will be featured.
