Home / News Articles / Pokémon GO - Season of Light

The Pokémon GO’s Season of Light takes place from September 1st, 2022, 10:00 AM to December 1st, 2022, 10:00 AM. Keep an eye on the horizon! Nebula skies will be showing up periodically during the Season.

The universe may be billions of years old, but it still finds ways to surprise. There are new discoveries all around us waiting to be uncovered—you have to be willing to change your perspective.

Sometimes that means waiting for the sun to go down and looking through a telescope at the nebulas on the other side of the cosmos. Other times it’s a little daytime research with your favorite Pokémon professor to discover the mysterious creatures appearing in your neighborhood. Whatever the case, one thing is always true—adventures are more fun with friends!

So grab your flashlight, call your friends, and make some room in your Item Bag. The mysteries of our bright, colorful cosmos aren’t going to discover themselves!
