The Halloween Cup is over in Pokémon GO and details of GO Battle League Season 5 have been announced, but Season 4 isn't finished yet. The final leg of this current season of PVP in Pokémon GO went live at the close of the Halloween 2020 Event last night, bringing all three leagues of the GO Battle League back. Great League, Ultra League, and Master League will be available for the week, giving players one last shot to rank up during this season.
