During this Season, different Pokemon will have the chance to appear in the wild and hatch from Eggs. You can view the full breakdown of these Pokemon on the Pokemon Go website.

A variety of in-game bonuses will be active during the Season of Light:

During the Season of Light, players will be able to complete new Special Research tasks that will become available at three points throughout the season. Here’s the calendar:

  • Part 1 – September 1, 2022
  • Part 2 – October 5, 2022
  • Part 3 – November 23, 2022

According to the Pokemon Go website, this Special Research will focus on Cosmog, a Legendary Pokemon from the seventh generation of the Pokemon universe.

Avatar items inspired by Cosmog will be added to the in-game shop during the Season of Light. Players will also be able to claim Season of Light-themed stickers by spinning the Photo Disc at PokeStops, opening Gifts, and purchasing them in the in-game store.
