As Pokémon Go fans grew to expect from the previous years, the new season “Season of Discover” for the mobile game will start on June 1st and it will last all summer. During the summer the players will be able to enjoy a lot of surprises since the Season of Discovery will be available for playing from June 1st to September 1st. Check out the list below to find out some of the exciting features:
Pokémon Go – Season of Discovery
We know that a lot of you missed some of the Legendary Pokémon, so we’re thrilled to announce to you these highly anticipated returns: Xerneas and Yvetal, Therian Formes of Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus. You can consider yourself lucky because the Go Fest 2021 will take place in July, so you can go crazy with Season of Discovery in any mode you like.
Only For Five-Star Raids
Pokémon Go developers give special attention to their 5-star raiders and want to reward them for playing the game to the highest level. Therefore, 5-star raiders will receive exclusive access to Regirock, Regice, and Registeel. These special Pokémons will be available until June 17th. We should mention that on June 17th another “surprise” Pokémon will join the list.
We ensure you that these aren’t all the cool things that Pokémon Go prepared for you! But some of them are meant to be a surprise! Besides these special surprises and returns, the new update will make some gameplay changes too. Let’s take a look at the new improvements that it brings:
New Gameplay Changes
- Mega Raids
A substantial change will be made to Mega Raids. From this expansion ahead, just one Pokémon at a time can be played in Mega Raids. This will help the players know which Pokémon they are dealing with.
- The Spawn
A bunch of Pokémon will receive special spawns that happen in a single place. You should expect to see Alolan Rattata, Magnemite, and Porygon more in the city areas and Rhyhorn, Nosepass, and Dwebble in the mountainous areas.
- Specific Areas
It’s good to know that now Pokémons will appear different depending on the hemisphere. With that being said, Alolan Diglett, Staryu, Barboach, and Petilil will appear more in the northern hemisphere, while Alolan Sandshrew, Alolan Vulpix, Shellder will appear more in the southern hemisphere. The Pokémons from the northern hemisphere will be placed usually in the wild along with Treecko, Torchic, Mudkip, and Deerling’s Summer Form, while the ones from the southern hemisphere will appear with Turtwig, Chimchar, Piplup, and Deerling’s Winter Form.
