Dragonspiral Descent Event Begins Today In Pokémon GO

The Dragonspiral Descent event goes live today in Pokémon GO. This event, the first major offering of the Season of Heritage, is getting many players excited due to the fact that Dragon-type events are quite rare. Speaking of rare, this event is also offering encounters with the uncommon Pokémon Deino not just in the wild but also in raids and field research. Druddigon will also debut in the game with its Shiny form already released. Let's get into the details.
