Season of Legends is a new Pokémon GO season, lasting from March 1st to June 1st 2021. Season of Legends celebrates legends in Pokémon GO, including new Legendary Pokémon and legendary Trainers.
At the time of writing, Niantic has shared an introductory blog post announcing the new Season. More details will be added to this guide after March 1st and after we collect more data.
New Legendary and Mega Raids
This Season will start with some Legendary Pokémon making their Pokémon GO debut—Therian Forme Tornadus, Therian Forme Thundurus, and Therian Forme Landorus!
Season-exclusive Special Research
Toward the start of the season, all Trainers will be able to access the Season of Legends Special Research. Follow Professor Willow as he makes exciting discoveries about Therian Forme Tornadus, Therian Forme Thundurus, and Therian Forme Landorus, the first three Legendary Pokémon featured during this Season.

Starting March 1, different Mega-Evolved Pokémon will be appearing in Mega Raids, and other Mega-Evolved Pokémon will be making their Pokémon GO debut over the course of the Season. Keep an ear out for more details soon, Trainers!
New wild spawns
As the seasons change, different kinds of Pokémon will be appearing in different habitats in the wild!
For example, you might find Mantine or Frillish appearing near water, or maybe you’ll happen upon a Voltorb or Glameow while in the city! If you happen to be traversing near grassy and forested areas, you might find Hoppip floating peacefully in the air.
These and many more Pokémon will be appearing more often in the wild, so keep a lookout and stay tuned for more details!
