Galar may have leap-frogged ahead in the regional order after last year's Go Fest, but it's finally time for a celebration of the tropical region of Alola to have its time to shine! That's right: Generation 7 is going to drop on March 1st, and with it we get to enjoy an entire season focused around all that it brings!

What We Know

....very little, to be honest. We know that Alolan Pokemon are going to be coming, and that Alolan Exeggutor will kick off the event, much like it did back when Sun and Moon were still the latest games in the series.

However, we do have confirmation that the official announcement and breakdown for the Season of Alola will be released tomorrow, so stay tuned and keep an eye out for our review of it!

A Tropical Kickoff!

In celebration of the new Season’s arrival, Alolan Exeggutor is appearing in the wild! If you’re lucky, you may still see some Alolan Exeggutor around after the Season begins.
