Pokémon Go: Season of heritage, an enigmatic teaser
A wild video, as short as it is mysterious, appears on the official Pokémon Go game YouTube channel this Monday evening. Accompanied by very soft and relaxing music, the 20-second video reveals a mountainous landscape that takes shape to finally create a logo with the title Season of Heritage followed by the mention Coming soon. But what can we try to deduce from this unexpected announcement?
4G still in the spotlight with Season of Heritage
Those most loyal to the universe know, this year is entirely dedicated to the 4th generation of Pokémon first appeared in 2007 with the Diamond & Pearl versions and which have just been offered a makeover for the new Sparkling Diamond and Sparkling Pearl versions.
The Sinnoh region, which is a favorite among players, is well known for its large map and its landscapes with varied climates but above all for its iconic Crowned Mountain. Simple coincidence or clue? The central element of the Season of Heritage logo shown in the Pokémon GO video obviously looks like the famous mountain. The latter also illustrates the cover of the next big game in the license.
Arceus Legacy for Pokémon GO
In addition to its landscape, the video also shares an original graphic style inspired by Japanese ink paintings and that can be found in the communication of the next main game on Nintendo Switch: Pokémon Legend Arceus.
Announced for January 28, 2022, the game will also take place in the renowned Sinnoh region in Hisui for the occasion because the action takes place this time in the distant past, before the arenas, the badges and even the pokeballs that we are used to using.
Another specificity announced for this game will be the appearance of new alternate forms of Pokémon already well known such as Caninos, Zorua or Gueriaigle…. Unlike fAlola or Galar elms already known to players, these are presented as primitive forms from which the Pokémon we know descend. A sort of Season of Heritage pre-inheritance…
Deduction and expectations
It is not Niantic’s practice to present events or features without warning and without explanation. We can therefore easily deduce that this communication coup was orchestrated by Nintendo while in full promotion of the next Pokémon Legend Arceus game. It is therefore very likely that this mysterious trailer announces events and / or features related to the release of the latter. We can of course imagine the alternate forms of in-game Pokémon but also new Field studies or even a special cut in the league. Finally, it is also possible to see the legendary Pokémon arrive Arceus in Pokémon Go.
Regardless, it’s good to know that the game has some nice surprises in store for us, probably right after the Chinese New Year event. Can’t wait to see what’s behind Season of Heritage!
In the meantime, be patient and don’t forget to prepare for the big Pokémon GO December Community Day which brings together all the Pokémon you might have missed in 2020 and 2021.
