Season 1 of Pokemon Go‘s Go Battle League is coming to an end this week, and developer Niantic has shared the first details on what’s next for the online PvP mode. Season 2 kicks off this Friday, May 1, at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET, and it features some new rewards and other changes.
As before, the Go Battle League’s format will rotate every few weeks. From May 1-25, battles will be contested under Great League rules; the format will then shift to the Ultra League from May 25-June 15; and the Master League will run from June 15-29.
Coinciding with the Master League will be Go Battle League’s first-ever Premier Cup. Like the Master League, there are no CP limits in the Premier Cup, although Legendary and Mythical Pokemon cannot be used. After June 29, all three leagues and the Premier Cup will be live until Season 2 ends on July 6.
