Pokemon Go’s Season of Legends Begins March 1

Pokemon Go

The newest season for Pokemon Go, the Season of Legends will begin on March 1st. The new season will feature the debut of the therian forme for Landorus, Thundurus, and Torandus

Niantic announced last year that Pokemon Go would begin a new seasonal content system. This new system would coincide with actual real-life seasons (fittingly they introduced seasonal variants of Deerling around the same time).

The new system began on December 1st, 2020 with the Season of Celebration for winter. Now that spring is here Pokemon Go will begin the Season of Legends.

The Season of Legends will include new legendary pokemon such as the therian forms of Unova’s Force of Nature Trio. Landorus, Thundurus, and Tornadus are three pokemon each with an “Incarnate Forme” where they take the appearance of genie-like beings, and a “Therian Forme” where they take the appearance of animalistic creatures.

You can read part of the announcement for the Season of Legends below.

More Pokémon will make their Pokémon GO debut in Legendary Raids and Mega Raids!

This Season will start with some Legendary Pokémon making their Pokémon GO debut—Therian Forme Tornadus, Therian Forme Thundurus, and Therian Forme Landorus! Stay tuned for more details. There might be some other Legendary faces making their Pokémon GO debut appearing later in the Season, too!

Starting March 1, different Mega-Evolved Pokémon will be appearing in Mega Raids, and other Mega-Evolved Pokémon will be making their Pokémon GO debut over the course of the Season. Keep an ear out for more details soon, Trainers!

Different Pokémon will be appearing in the wild!

As the seasons change, different kinds of Pokémon will be appearing in different habitats in the wild! For example, you might find Mantine or Frillish appearing near water, or maybe you’ll happen upon a Voltorb or Glameow while in the city! If you happen to be traversing near grassy and forested areas, you might find Hoppip floating peacefully in the air. These and many more Pokémon will be appearing more often in the wild, so keep a lookout and stay tuned for more details!

Hemisphere-exclusive Pokémon

During this Season, the kinds of Pokémon that appear more often in the wild exclusively in either the northern or southern hemisphere will be greatly expanded from last Season!

In the northern hemisphere, you’ll be able to encounter Pokémon like Tangela, Combee, Croagunk, Ducklett, and many more in the wild! First partner Pokémon originally discovered in the Sinnoh region—Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup—will also be appearing in the wild, alongside Spring Form Deerling. If you’re extremely lucky, you might even encounter Pokémon such as Scyther, Dratini, or Cottonee in the wild!

In the southern hemisphere, Pokémon like Mankey, Yanma, Buizel, Woobat, and many more will be appearing in the wild, alongside first partner Pokémon originally discovered in the Unova region—Snivy, Tepig, and Oshawott! If you’re extremely lucky, you might encounter a Pineco, Bagon, or Ferroseed. Keep your eyes out for Autumn Form Deerling, too!

Other changes include new pokemon being hatched from 2km, 5km, and 10km eggs, and increased XP from 5-star raids.
