The following details of the Season of Heritage were announced over at the official Pokémon GO blog:

The Season of Heritage will run from Wednesday, December 1, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. to Tuesday, March 1, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. local time.

After witnessing the power Hoopa was able to unleash during the Season of Mischief, Professor Willow has become intrigued by what other mysterious powers may be lying dormant in the world. His research brings him to a historical cave site, where he stumbles upon a large door bearing a set of strange unlocking mechanisms. How does it open? What lies beyond? Your research this Season will see you collaborating with both Professor Willow and the Team Leaders to help uncover this historic site's mysteries. Along the way, we'll explore the past for answers that will guide us into the future as we make our way toward Pokémon GO Tour: Johto.

The confirmation of Pokémon GO Tour: Johto means that the event will likely culminate in the release of all remaining Shiny Generation Two Pokémon for this mega-event. Pokémon GO Tour: Johto will take place from February 26th – 27th.

Other details that we can confirm about the Season of Heritage include:

  • December bonus: Double Stardust for the first daily catch
  • January bonus: Double XP for the first daily catch
  • February bonus: Increased Candy XL and double XP from hatching eggs
  • Full season bonus: Guaranteed Candy XL when trading — whoa!
  • Community Days announced in advance:
