The next update for Pokémon Go, Season of Heritage, seems to be heavily themed to match the upcoming game Pokémon Legends: Arceus. This upcoming Pokémon game for the Nintendo Switch is unlike any Pokémon game we’ve seen before. In it’s gameplay and its story, it’s introducing new ideas and exciting features everyone’s looking forward to trying out when it comes out on January 28th, 2022. We’ve seen a lot of promotions revolving around Arceus and this new title in other areas of the Pokemon franchise. For example there’s an Arceus themed TCG expansion coming called Brilliant Stars that features a new type of Pokémon card.
What’s In The Update?
The story is that Professor Willow has stumbled upon a historical cave site with a large door. As the professor explores the site and finds out how to unlock this door, it seems we’ll be discovering Pokémon we haven’t seen before in Pokemon Go. This has started by introducing the dragon type Pokemon, Druddigon, to Pokémon Go, which you can also get a shiny version of if you’re lucky! The common spawns of wild Pokémon and Raids are also changing with this new update along with new challenges and field research. The Season of Hertiage update will run from December 1st, 2021 to March 1st, 2022.
