Pokemon Go Battle League Season 1 starts next week

The Pokemon Go Battle League Season 1 will commence next week, Niantic has today advised. Preseason will end and Season 1 proper will kick off at 8.00 am AEDT on Saturday, 14 March.

“As a token of our gratitude, Trainers who achieved rank 4 or higher will receive a Premium Battle Pass as part of their end-of-preseason rewards,” Niantic also advised.

“For those of you who haven’t had a chance to try it—what is the GO Battle League? Like many Pokémon GO features, the GO Battle League encourages players to get out and explore the world with Pokémon. You can walk to earn entry into the GO Battle League, then battle opponents from around the globe through an online matching system and rise in the ranks of the league. This feature was a way to make the Pokémon GO battling experience more competitive and accessible to more Trainers.”

Pokemon Go is available on iOS and Android devices.
