Pokémon GO is launching the Mountains of Power event tomorrow. This new event continues the Season of Heritage story. It ends on January 13.

For this new event, Spark’s intuition has led him to believe that the second mechanism of the mysterious door can be unlocked with the assistance of Rock- and Steel-type Pokémon. Trainers get to journey with Spark across terrain that's sure to remind them of the mountains like in Sinnoh and Johto.
