Niantic prepares a hectic 2021 entry for its star game.

In global computation, 2020 has been a great year for Pokémon GO. During these twelve months, dozens of news and new possibilities have been arriving within the game, in addition to constantly adding more Pokémon from different regions that make up the universe of the saga.

As a quick summary, we can point to the arrival of the seasons or the rise of the maximum level to 50 as the most significant, although the implementation of mega-evolutions, remote raids or compatibility with Pokémon Home are not far behind.

All of this has set the bar high for 2021. If Niantic wants to maintain its current success, it must flood the game with events and updates and it seems that for January 2021 it has taken note of this procedure.
