Nosepass?

Trainers,

We’re kicking off the Season of Legends with a search for Legendary Pokémon! Any successful search requires a good sense of direction—and if there’s one Pokémon equipped to help in that regard, it’s Nosepass. The Compass Pokémon will be appearing in greater numbers to help you sniff out leads alongside a variety of Ground-, Rock-, and Steel-type Pokémon.
