A lot of exciting events. Niantic

August is almost over and that means a new month with a whole new set of activities. September is also an exciting time for Pokémon GO players since it brings the start of a new season.

One of the things that players can look forward to is weekly bundles. For each Monday of the month, a one-time-purchase bundle is available in the shop for one PokéCoin. It’s going to have a Remote Raid Pass as well as other items inside.

For September Community Day, it’s set to feature the Sea Otter Pokémon Oshawott. Read more about that here.
