As with any upcoming month, Pokémon GO fans will want to know what’s next to plan for future events and raids. Thankfully, developer Niantic has dropped the Sept. 2023 schedule to keep players in the loop.
Quite a lot of content is lined up for next month, including the start of Pokémon GO Season 12: Adventures Abound and GO Battle League Season 16.
Not to mention, there are several events, like the Ultra Unlock for the Paldea region and Charmander Community Day Classic. And, of course, expect plenty of new raids and Spotlight Hours each week.
We’ll guide you through everything planned in Sept. 2023 for the mobile AR title. Here’s what to know.
A breakdown of the Pokémon GO September 2023 Schedule.
The headliner update for the schedule will be the Adventures Abound season running from Sept. 1 to Dec. 1, 2023. The season aims to introduce Pokémon first found in the Paldea region, such as Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly.
During Adventures Abound, Trainers can open and send up to 40 Gifts daily, gain increased damage when participating in raids with a friend, and reap increased XP from going up a Friendship level.
Going live alongside the three-month event will be GO Battle League Season 16, adding new moves and big changes for specific creatures, rank up rewards, and updates to the league.
