Pokémon Go Battle League is slated to run from May through the middle of June.

The Pokémon Go Battle League is a mobile-wide league where players can battle friends and strangers, rank up in the leaderboards and win awesome prizes. The inaugural season is nearing its conclusion, however, there's not much downtime between its end and the second season's beginning.

Pokémon Go Battle League Schedule

When?

Pokémon Go Battle League will begin on Friday, May 1 at 4 p.m. ET.

How long will it last?

The event is slated to span from May 1 through June 12. Initially, the season should bear the original PVP game mode.

The Pokémon Go Battle League is set into different Leagues, or tiers rather. Each has its own CP cap per Pokémon (Great - 1,500, Ultra - 2,500, Master - none) and will be featured for two weeks before a rotation into the next League.

  • Great League - May 1 - 15
  • Ultra League - May 15 - 29
  • Master League - May 29 - June 12

What are the rewards?

While no known information has been published by Niantic regarding rewards for Season 2, expect them to follow in similarity with Season 1's rewards. Reaching rank 10 in Season 1 granted players a meeting with Pikachu Libre. Subsequently, reaching rank 10 in Season 2 might reward something greater, but its certainly hard to top an encounter with the game's most-renowned character.
