Pokemon Go’s next season, the Season of Discovery, is set to shake things up in the next three months with the introduction of new Pokemon in raids, the return of some old ones, a shuffle in which Pokemon will appear in the wild, and more. Here are all the details.

Pokemon Go Season of Legends was a resounding success. It gave players a chance to catch Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus in their Therian Formes, among other things. However, the show must go on, and Niantic is keeping the ball rolling with the announcement of the Season of Discovery.

This season is packed with all sorts of new content. It’s got everything from old and new Pokemon appearing in five-star raids to new Field Research Tasks and Rewards, new wild spawns, and more. Here’s everything we know so far.
