Niantic has announced the Season of Heritage which takes place from Wednesday, December 1st, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. to Tuesday, March 1st, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. local time in Pokémon GO.

Welcome to the Season of Heritage!

Image

Trainers, We’re excited to announce Pokémon GO’s next Season: the Season of Heritage!

The Season of Heritage will run from Wednesday, December 1, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. to Tuesday, March 1, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. local time.

After witnessing the power Hoopa was able to unleash during the Season of Mischief, Professor Willow has become intrigued by what other mysterious powers may be lying dormant in the world. His research brings him to a historical cave site, where he stumbles upon a large door bearing a set of strange unlocking mechanisms. How does it open? What lies beyond? Your research this Season will see you collaborating with both Professor Willow and the Team Leaders to help uncover this historic site’s mysteries.

Along the way, we’ll explore the past for answers that will guide us into the future as we make our way toward Pokémon GO Tour: Johto.

Learn more about what’s to come this Season on the Season of Heritage webpage.

Please be aware of your surroundings and follow guidelines from local health authorities when playing Pokémon GO. Upcoming events are subject to change.

Trainers, ready for a blast from the past?

While visiting a historical cave site, I discovered a giant door equipped with a set of strange unlocking mechanisms! The team leaders and I have some hypotheses as to how to unlock it, but we’re still unsure as to what may lie beyond. Pretty exciting, wouldn’t you say?

Let’s explore this relic from the past as we ponder our own heritages! I have a feeling we’ll learn much more about this particular location over the coming months as we seek to solve these mysteries together. What can we learn from the histories of places, Pokémon, and even our fellow Trainers that will shed light on our future? Let’s GO find out!

12/1: Welcome to the Season of Heritage!

Wednesday, December 1, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. local time to Tuesday, March 1, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. local time.

After witnessing the power Hoopa Unbound was able to unleash during the Season of Mischief, Professor Willow has become intrigued by what other mysterious powers may be lying dormant in the world. His research brings him to a historical cave site, where he stumbles upon a large door bearing a set of strange unlocking mechanisms. How does it open? What lies beyond? Your research this Season will see you collaborating with both Professor Willow and the team leaders to help uncover this historic site’s mysteries.

Professor Willow looking at a large mysterious door at a historic site “Well, well—look at what we’ve discovered! It appears to be a door with a set of strange unlocking mechanisms. How curious... I wonder what lies behind it?”

12/5: Swinub Incense Day

Sunday, December 5, 2021, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time

Professor Willow recruits Blanche to help investigate the mysterious door’s mechanisms. After some analysis of the faded symbols adorning the door, Blanche determines that the first of the door’s mechanisms requires Stardust and the help of Ice- and Ground-type Pokémon to activate.

In order to continue their research on the door, Professor Willow and Blanche begin to modify Incense to specifically attract Ice- and Ground-type Pokémon like Swinub for a short period of time.

Image

“According to my analysis of the door’s components, this should do the trick.”

Monthly Seasonal Bonuses and Timed Research

A different Seasonal Bonus will be featured every month during the Season of Heritage.

In addition, Timed Research will be available every month and will reward Trainers with exclusive avatar items. December’s Timed Research will be available to all Trainers, while the Timed Research in January and February will be available to those who pre-purchase a ticket for Pokémon GO Tour: Johto.

December 2021 - Team Leader: Blanche

Work alongside Blanche and Professor Willow to activate the first portion of the mysterious door’s unlocking mechanism. Blanche has been able to decipher that it requires Stardust and the help of Ice- and Ground-type Pokémon to do so—and that’s where you come in!

Monthly Bonus: 2× Stardust for first catch of each day

Timed Research: Stardust Challenge
Deino Hat Avatar Item
Collect 120,000 Stardust Total to Unlock! Earn Stardust during the month of December to make progress on Blanche’s Timed Research and unlock rewards like the Deino Hat avatar item! The Deino Hat avatar item will be available for purchase in the shop after the Season ends.
