Shared Skies roadmap in Pokémon Go

Below you'll find everything we currently know about the Season of Shared Skies roadmap in Pokémon Go.

Marshadow.

While most of the new Pokémon remain a mystery for now, we do know that Necrozma debuts in raids during Go Fest 2024! They can be changed to Dusk Mane or Dawn Wings Necrozma through a new mechanic coming to the game during Go Fest: Fusion. Dusk Mane Necrozma is created by fusing Solgaleo and Necrozma with Solar Fusion Energy, and Dawn Wings Necrozma is created by fusing Lunala and Necrozma with Lunar Fusion Energy.

Solar Fusion Energy and Lunar Fusion Energy are obtained by battling Necrozma in raids during Go Fest 2024, and it's important to know that Dusk Mane Necrozma and Dawn Wings Necrozma can't be traded, transferred to the Professor, or transferred to Pokémon Home.

The new Mythical Pokémon Marshadow is also available to all during the first day of the Global Go Fest 2024 event, after first appearing in the local Go Fest events in Sendai, Madrid, and New York City.

What are seasons in Pokémon Go?

Originally introduced in December 2021, seasons are in-game periods which last for three months and tie together various events with a theme. During this time, a selection of new features and quality of life changes can also be added to Pokémon Go.

This includes:

  • Changes to how Pokémon spawn season-to-season, which may see some creatures appearing more regularly or become rarer in the wild for limited time periods.
  • Changes to the egg pools and raids.
  • Northern and southern hemisphere-specific spawning, coinciding with the real world seasons themselves.
  • Highlight specific Mega Evolutions, giving them a power boost throughout the season.
  • Different Deerling forms.
  • A new Go Battle League season, which will be the same length as the season itself.
  • XP boosts for completing specific activities, such as five-star raids for example.
  • Introduce other general quality of life improvements.
  • A range of in-game events.
  • New Pokémon.
  • Occasionally, new features.
