A new season of GO Battle League is starting in Pokémon GO on November 29. Like every new season, there’s a lot of things to be excited about, such as guaranteed Pokémon encounters and cool rewards.

Before we look into the details, these are some of the things that will happen immediately once Season 10 starts:

  • End-of-season rewards are available on the battle screen.
  • The GO Battle League rank of trainers is reset.
  • Rank-up requirements remain the same as in Season 9.
  • Pokémon appearing in GO Battle League encounters are slightly easier to catch.

Now it wouldn’t be fun without bonuses and for Season 10 these include:
