And Professor Willow's Season of Legends Special Research will give you a chance to learn more about these Pokémon while earning fun rewards.

The Season of Legends has plenty of other excitement in store, too. Throughout the new Season, different Pokémon from last Season will be appearing in the wild, hatching from Eggs, and appearing in raids.

In the northern hemisphere, Trainers might encounter Pokémon such as Tangela, Scyther, Dratini, Turtwig, Chimchar, Piplup, Combee, Croagunk, Cottonee, Ducklett, and Spring Form Deerling. Trainers in the southern hemisphere may encounter Mankey, Yanma, Pineco, Bagon, Buizel, Snivy, Tepig, Oshawott, Woobat, Autumn Form Deerling, Ferroseed, and more.

To help you make the most of the new Season, you'll receive additional XP for winning five-star raids. And you'll be able to get free Remote Raid Passes throughout the Season, so check the in-game shop early and often.

Make this a legendary new Season, Trainers!

Pokemon Platinum content spotted in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl

Going Platinum

Eagle-eyed Pokemon fans caught something interesting in the debut trailer for Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl. At one point, the trailer shows an extra NPC in Floaroma Town. While this character wasn't in Diamond or Pearl, they were in Platinum, the third title in that series. This character gives you Gracidea if you have Shaymin in your collection. This character popping up in the trailer is pretty indisputable evidence that Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl will include at last some Platinum content.
