Niantic has announced the next phase for Pokemon Go after the Kanto Tour: The Season of Legends. The three-month-long celebrations will focus on the series’ most popular Legendary mon’, Trainers, as well as the debut of the Therian Formes.

Pokemon Go will shift away from celebrating Gen I starting in March and will honor the series’ favorite Legendaries for the next three months.

Season of Legends will also mark the debut of Therian Formes for the Forces of Nature trio: Landorus, Thundurus, and Tornadus. Here is everything we know so far.

Gen V’s Forces of Nature trio are being positioned as the face of the new season, with the debut of their Therian Formes being the main highlight of the announcement.

While there is certainly a lot more to be revealed in the coming months, Niantic teased Trainers by stating: “You can also look forward to a series of events toward the end of the Season that will certainly be Legendary.”

While Therian Formes for the Forces of Nature trio are tantalizing enough, it appears that Pokemon Go Trainers can look forward to encountering many Legendary ‘mon throughout the three-month period.
