What are Seasons?

In Pokémon GO, Seasons are periods of time that feature new events, Pokémon debuts, and surprises that all follow a certain theme.

As the Seasons change, you may also find different Pokémon appearing in your area and hatching from Eggs. Make sure to explore during each in-game Season to collect and train as many different Pokémon as you can! You’ll also enjoy special bonuses as you do.

You never know what new surprises you’ll find during a new Pokémon GO Season. Why not check out what the latest one has to offer?

What to Look Forward to This Season

New Features

Gholdengo, the Coin Entity Pokémon
Gimmighoul, the Coin Chest Pokémon
Pokémon GO Exclusive
Roaming Form Gimmighoul, available to catch only in Pokémon GO!

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

What’s more, their latest research report has concluded that this form of Gimmighoul can also evolve into Gholdengo, the Coin Entity Pokémon! 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 Pokémon 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 Pokéstops 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 Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon 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…

Two Meltan of different sizes
All Pokémon discovered in XXS and XXL sizes!

Get ready for something big! And something…small? All Pokémon in Pokémon GO have been discovered in XXS and XXL sizes!

For more information, including how to recognize different sizes of Pokémon during encounters or how your Pokédex tracks sizes, head over to the blog!
