Pokemon GO's newest event, Season of Legends, is coming at the beginning of March.

Niantic Labs took to Twitter on Feb. 22 to announce details concerning their next Pokemon GOseason-wide event, the Season of Legends. This three-month-long celebration includes new Special Research, legendary debuts, egg group changes, and more. Below, we've broken down the most important parts trainers should keep an eye out for this coming Spring.

Pokemon GO Season of Legends Event Guide

The Season of Legends event programming will run from 8 a.m. on Monday, March 1 to 10 p.m. on Tuesday, June 1, local time.

The primary feature here is the debut of the Therian Formes for the Forces of Nature trio, Thundrus, Landorus, and Tornadus. While there is currently no news on how trainers will be able to catch them, Niantic has revealed that trainers will be able to earn their candies via research tasks. In fact, this season's Special Research Line will feature the three and coincide with their release.

The team went on to tease additional legendaries making their own first appearances, but did not mention exactly who those could be.

As the seasons begin to turn in each hemisphere, new Pokemon are coming out of hiding and hibernation. Northern Hemisphere trainers will be able to find Tangela, Combee, Croagunk, Ducklett, the Sinnoh starters, Spring-form Deerling, and more. Meanwhile, Southern Hemisphere trainers could likely start to see Mankey, Yanma, Buizel, Woobat, the Unova starters, Pineco, and Autumn-form Deerling, among others.

Treecko, Torchic, Mudkip, and Budew will join the 2 k.m. egg group while Drowzee, Azurill, and Munna will be added to the 5 k.m. group. 10 k.m. eggs are set to feature Nincada, Alomomola, and others for the duration of the event.

Additionally, trainers will start to receive increased experience from five-star raids and should keep an eye out for free Remote Raid Pass drops in the Shop tab.
