Pokémon Go recently announced that its Go Battle League is about to enter Season 4. The new season is going to start on September 14 and is going to run all the way to November 9. Like with the previous season, there’s going to be some new changes to the Go Battle League, and you can read more about that here.

One of the new things that Season 4 brings is the Halloween Cup, which is going to be between October 26 and November 3. In between all the different weeks, there’s going to be a limited-time event which is the Go Battle Night. The first Go Battle Night is going to be on September 24 from 6:00 PM to 11:59 PM, local time.

So what’s Go Battle Night all about, then? First, the Flying Cup is going to be available. What this means is that during the event, only Flying-type Pokémon are allowed. In addition, the CP limit is going to be 1,500.

Trainers have the chance to complete 20 sets of Go Battle League battles. This means a total of up to 100 battles. Trainers also receive twice the Stardust not only for winning battles, but also in completing sets of battles as well as ranking up in the Go Battle League.

Finally, during the event, there is a chance to evolve a Pidgeotto into a Pidgeot that knows Gust.

There is also going to be a new attack added to the game, the Lunge. This is a Bug-type Charged Attack that lowers the Attack stat of the other Pokémon. When Lunge initially becomes available, only the Pokémon Galvantula and Masquerain are going to be able to learn it.

There are also going to be attacks that are updated for the Trainer Battles which are:

  • Bug Buzz
    • A Bug-type Charged Attack that now has a chance of lowering the Defense of the opposing Pokémon.
  • Flame Charge
    • A Fire-type Charged Attack that now deals less damage while also raising the user’s Attack.
  • Signal Beam
    • A Bug-type Charged Attach that now has a chance of lowering not only the Attack of the opposing Pokémon, but also its Defense.

In addition to all of this, Vespiquen can now learn the Signal Beam attack. This should be a good improvement for this Pokémon.
