Pokemon Go Season of Mischief is finally here, with new tasks, rare Pokemon and special events. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest season and what to expect from the coming months.

Pokemon Go Season of Mischief: September is here, and so is the latest season of Pokemon Go, which follows the excitement of the Pokemon Go Fest in July and the Community Fest in August. Called the Season of Mischief, Niantic has been teasing the arrival of the Pokemon Hoopa for a while now, and players can expect new tasks and rare Pokemon, along with other changes to the game.

Niantic had previously stated that the game would follow the events of Pokemon Go Fest 2021, and an adventure focusing on Mischief Pokemon Hoopa will be part of this new season’s Special Research story, according to Niantic. Those who played the Pokemon Go Fest in July will remember that Hoopa had distorted time and space while bringing Legendary Pokemon to the game, and the entire season promises to be very interesting after Niantic’s announcement.
