Pokémon GO Seasons

Professor Willow

In Pokemon GO, Seasons are periods of time that feature new events, Pokemon debuts, and surprises that all follow a certain theme. As the Seasons change, you may also find different Pokemon appearing in your area and hatching from Eggs. Make sure to explore during each in-game Season to collect and train as many different Pokemon as you can! You’ll also enjoy special bonuses as you do. You never know what new surprises you’ll find during a new Pokemon GO Season. Why not check out what the latest one has to offer?

New features

Roaming Form Gimmighoul, available to catch only in Pokemon GO!

Professor Willow and Jacq from the Paldea region have made a new discovery: Trainers can now encounter and catch Roaming Form Gimmighoul in Pokemon GO!

What’s more, their latest research report has concluded that this form of Gimmighoul can also evolve into Gholdengo, the Coin Entity Pokemon! Similar to Chest Form Gimmighoul in Paldea, Gholdengo seems to be tied to the mysterious coins we recently uncovered! Learn more about this discovery here.

  • The key to encountering these mysterious Pokemon appears to be the Coin Bag.
  • Trainers can use this special item once per day to temporarily attract Roaming Form Gimmighoul in the wild!
  • Professor Willow and Jacq have also confirmed that Golden Pokestops can be created with the help of another recent breakthrough: the Golden Lure Module!
  • The Coin Bag can also be used in integration with the Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet games on the Nintendo Switch!

And who knows how else we might find more of the mysterious coins? Perhaps catching and exploring with Roaming Form Gimmighoul will reveal more…
