Laura Gray

Niantic has announced the next long-term event for Pokemon Go, called Seasons of Light. Like previous seasons for 2022, it appears the next round of events will continue to focus on Alola.

Pokemon Go players have had a busy year with beach-themed species following the Season of Alola and Season of Go long-term events through spring and summer. With the conclusion of Season of Go on September 1, 2022, many are excited to know what will come next.

Following the recent Pokemon Go Fest 2022 finale event filled with Ultra Beasts and a curious narrative surrounding the disappearance of Professor Willow, new updates are appearing on the Pokemon Go social media accounts. These updates, while sparse, have revealed the name and timeframe for the next Pokemon Go season.
