The Season of Discovery start date is June 1st; that’s where it all kicks off from. The season is slated to last for three months, throughout the whole summer, meaning that it should wrap up at some point on August 31st.

One of the new things to look forward to in Pokemon Go Season of Discovery is the research project. I doubt that it’ll work that differently from this season’s project, mechanics-wise. Also, I assume that it will last approximately the same time, meaning that you should be able to wrap it up near the end of the season. We’ll have to wait and see.

There’s also the matter of Pokemon Go Fest 2021. It will take place from July 17th to 18th, and tickets are already up for sale. This one will be another virtual happening that players all over the globe will have the chance to participate in. Last, but not least, you can look forward to the upcoming Season 8 Battle League.
