Pokémon Go will be receiving several new changes at the midway point of Season 6, the longest season to happen in the mobile game so far. The next half of Season 6 will be restarting the three different cups, and several move changes are coming to the PvP portion of the game.

First off, the Great, Ultra, and Master Leagues will have a second-round for all players to go through them again for another round. Here are all of the dates for those leagues.

  • Great League: January 11 at 1 PM PT
  • Ultra League: January 25 at 1 PM PT
  • Ultra Premier Cup: January 25 at 1 PM PT
  • Master League: February 8 at 1 PM PT
  • Master Premier Cup: February 8 at 1 PM PT
  • Master League Classic: February 8 at 1 PM PT
  • Special Unnanounced Cup: February 8 at 1 PM
  • Kanto Cup: February 22 at 1 PM PT

Once the Master League leagues finish up on February 15, all of the leagues will be available on February 15 at 1 PM PT. A new reward has become available for Battle League players, and it’s Frillish. You need to reach rank 20 to encounter it potentially.
