Dragonite has been hard at work, flying around the world and delivering special invitations to a select group of battlers. All of the invitations have been delivered and the competitors have gathered to showcase a brand new format coming this winter. The 2021 All Star Invitational will premier the first ever Arena Teams competition!
Just two years ago, trainers around the world took their first steps on their journey to become the Very Best. They built countless battle teams and honed their skills, transforming local parks and gathering places into splendid Arenas to showcase their abilities. But in February 2021, the landscape of PvP will change forever. The path towards the pinnacle of Pokémon PvP will no longer be walked in solitude. It's time to gather you squad - team competitions are coming to the Silph Arena!
There's no better way to start the new year than with a PvP moveset rebalance! We've reached the halfway point of GO Battle League Season 6, and Niantic has just released a large set of move updates and moveset additions that will go into effect on Monday, January 11th 2021. Let's jump right in!
December Community Day is back! We have most of the weekend of December 12-13 (just a single digit number of days away already!) to hunt for and evolve over 20 Pokémon that have had featured Community Days and associated exclusive moves - generally some of the best moves in PvP - over the last two years. While this year, the 2018 Community Days drop off, we still have a rehash of all of 2019 and 2020 coming back. But with the sheer volume of Pokémon to hunt down and evolve in a time limited period, what are the ones to make especially sure we don't miss out on for PvP?
