| Pokemon GO

As we near the end of 2021, the final season of Pokémon GO has also gone live. December’s Community Day event is going to be a blast from the past and so is the entire season as it is called the Season of Heritage.

Hoopa’s strangeness piqued Professor Willow’s interest, leading him to a historical cave site which we know nothing about. Season 10 of Pokémon GO will deal with these mysteries as we tour the Johto region. Perhaps, the legendary Pokémon Arceus is waiting for us on the other side? The season will run until 1st March 2022, but let’s first check out what December has in store for us.

The weekly PokéCoin bundle is available as always while December’s Research Breakthrough encounter is going to feature Deino.

December Raids

The Season of Heritage is kicking off with some massive raids that players will not want to miss. Reshiram and Zekrom will be available in 5-star raids in the first half of the month and Kyurem will show up during the second. For the first time, you may also encounter their shiny variants! Mega Raids mark the debut of Mega Steelix and will also see Mega Abomasnow join towards the end of the month.

Spotlight Hours will take place every Tuesday from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm local time. This month’s spotlight Pokémon and bonuses are:
