Look forward to autumn-themed Pokémon, Berry bonuses, and Deerling coming as the seasons change!

Trainers, Around the world, the seasons change. As the seasons turn, different Pokémon will be appearing in the wild and hatching from Eggs, certain Berry effects will be boosted, Berry-themed Field Research and Timed Research will be available, and Deerling will make its Pokémon GO debut!

Date + Time
Friday, October 9, 2020, at 8:00 a.m. to Monday, October 12, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. local time

Features
  • Whether it’s autumn or spring where you are, plants are flourishing all around the world. During this event, Berries will be twice as effective when you give them as treats to your Buddy Pokémon, and you’ll earn twice the usual Candy you normally would when catching a Pokémon that you’ve given a Pinap Berry to. Berries will also be dropping more often when you spin Photo Discs at PokéStops and Gyms, so be sure to harvest a few Berries!
  • Pokémon can sense when the seasons change! You can expect to see the following Pokémon appearing more often in the wild: Oddish, Vulpix, Bayleef, Hoothoot, Sudowoodo, Yanma, Pineco, Zigzagoon, Seedot, Shroomish, Plant Cloak Burmy, and Foongus.
  • If you’re lucky, you might encounter a Shiny Vulpix as originally discovered in Kanto!
  • Autumn-themed Pokémon will be hatching from 5 km Eggs.
  • Deerling, the Season Pokémon, will be making its Pokémon GO debut! The turning of the seasons changes the color and scent of this Pokémon’s fur. Keep an eye out for its Autumn Form Deerling!
In some parts of the world, the leaves are turning red and the shadows are growing longer! With the transition from a hot summer to a cooler autumn in some places, it looks like there will be a few different Pokémon hatching from Eggs soon. You can look forward to that and other exciting changes from Monday, October 12, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. to Monday, October 19, 2020, at 10:00 p.m. local time.

As the seasons change, it’s good to remember to enjoy the simple pleasures of life. It’s also the perfect time for self-reflection. Who knows? Maybe you’ll realize something new about yourself!

Please be aware of your surroundings and follow guidelines from local health authorities when playing Pokémon GO. Upcoming events are subject to change.

Encounter Pokémon like Gengar, Grimmsnarl, Morpeko, and More in Max Raid Battles

Things are getting a little creepy in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield as Ghost- and Dark-type Pokémon are starting to invade Max Raid Battles.

Spooky things are afoot in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield's Max Raid Battles all month long. Through Saturday, October 31, 2020, at 4:59 p.m. PDT, you'll find that Ghost-type Pokémon Gengar, Drifblim, and Dusknoir, along with Dark-type Pokémon Hydreigon, Grimmsnarl, and Morpeko, will appear more frequently in Max Raid Battles.

For an opportunity to encounter these Pokémon in a Max Raid Battle, you'll need to connect your Nintendo Switch system to the internet through Y-Comm or by selecting Mystery Gift in the X menu, then selecting Get the Wild Area News. After that, whenever you see a pillar of light shining from a Pokémon Den, you can walk up to the Pokémon Den and interact with it to start a Max Raid Battle with a Dynamax Pokémon.

Be sure to read our Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield Max Raid Battle Tips article for advice on how to topple these giant opponents. Don't wait, though—you won't want to miss out on the chance to add these Pokémon to your team!
