Pokemon Go received a roadmap for early 2022 with interesting planned changes but Niantic warned that nothing is set in stone due to potential difficulties.
Niantic announced planned changes for the earlier part of 2022 in Pokemon Go but noted that the difficulties that exist because of constraints imposed by Covid pandemic might result in a change of plans down the road. That said, here are the near-future plans for the popular mobile game.
Pokemon Go Tour: Johto has already been announced and is the first on the list of Niantic's plans, on account of starting just a few days after the blog post. The event will happen during the weekend over February 26 and 27, 2022. You can also see the necessary details for the Pokemon Go Tour: Johto if you want to plan ahead.
Go Battle League is getting a series of improvements but Niantic didn't go too far into details. They are currently prioritising "a number of updates and improvements" that include bug fixes but that's all the info for now.
The devs are also working on adding more functionality to the Postcard Book feature, like notifications, sticker saving, expanded Gift maximum, new Postcard sorting methods and new Postcard notes.
On the topic of the next season, Niantic announced they will share "several seasonal Special Research stories" with the players and this time the focus will be on smaller-scale adventures.
Finally, there is the Community Day update. Well, there isn't much of a change to speak of but the devs are looking into other concepts for Community Day to keep the events fresh. One point of reference was Community Day Classic so more variations are on the way.
