When does the Season of GO start in Pokémon GO?

The next Season ties into the upcoming Pokémon GO Fest, here's when Season of GO starts.
When does the Season of GO start in Pokémon GO?

The Season of Alola is coming to an end, and with June on the horizon, the Season of GO has been announced for Pokémon GO. This new season is meant to celebrate the game as a whole, and it's no coincidence that Pokémon GO Fest 2022 will tie into the start of the season.

New seasons typically last for a few months, or about the length of real-life seasons. They introduce new Go Battle League rankings, plenty of community days, and there are always new Pokémon debuts for fans to look out for.

There is about a week left in the Alolan content stream, and that means after May comes to an end, Pokémon GO will transition into the Season of GO. The official start date is 1st June 2022 based on your local time zone on the day of release.

Regardless of the time zone, everyone will be able to access the new season at 10 am with no end until the next season is ushered in. There are about three months given for each new season, and according to Niantic, the Season of GO will come to an end on 1st September.

When the new season arrives, there won't be a ton to do for at least a few days. An update for Season 11 of the GO Battle League is the most enticing change, but there are no instant events. This can be attributed to Niantic waiting for the biggest event of the year to start.

Pokémon GO Fest is set to begin on 4th June and will remain live for most of the weekend. GO Fest 2022 is the true kick-off to the brand new season, and after the major event comes to an end, more content will come down the pipeline.

Aside from GO Fest 2022 at the beginning of June, there is far more to come down the line. In June alone, there will be an Adventure Week based on Fossil and Rock-type Pokémon, as well as a Pokémon TCG crossover event. Both of these will be live by the middle of June.

Two new Pokémon should also appear in the new season as far as we know. Shaymin and the Sky Forme have already been confirmed. However, an Ultra Beast has also been teased in the latest trailer and could be a major implication for the game.
