Pokémon GO Battle League Season 7: Details, competitions, rewards, and more

A new competitive season is about to begin with the start of the Season of Legends.
After several weeks of stiff competition, a new season of GO Battle League is coming to Niantic's mobile game, Pokémon GO.

Before we begin with this look at the new season, it should be noted that the rewards of Season 6 will be distributed as soon as it ends on 1st March, which will include an Elite Fast TM when reaching rank 19 or more in this.

Now, let's see everything that Niantic has prepared for Season 7 of the GO Battle League.
