Timeless Travels is the brand new season coming to Pokemon GO in December, and we've got all the information you need to know about it here.

As revealed in an official post by Niantic, this new season features brand new Hisuian Pokemon that have never been seen in Pokemon GO before. I'm a big fan of Pokemon Legends: Arceus, so it's cool to see these regional variants finally arrive in the game.

Read on for more details about the start date, Pokemon you can expect to see in the wild or in Eggs, and even info about Community Days and new Timed Research tickets.

When does Pokemon GO's Timeless Travels season start?

Timeless Travels will go live in Pokemon GO on December 1, 2023, at 10am local time. It will end on March 1, 2024, with plenty of special events taking place in between.

Most seasons in Pokemon GO last for three months, so it comes as no surprise that this new season is the same length.

New Hisuian Pokemon, Eggs & wild spawns

More Pokemon originally discovered in the Hisui region from Legends: Arceus will be featured in this new season. That includes the three Hisuian starter Pokemon (Decidueye, Typhlosion and Samurott) as well as Wyrdeer, a new evolution for Stantler.

Different Pokemon will start spawning depending on your environment or hemisphere too. Here's a list of all Pokemon confirmed to be spawning in certain areas:
