Trainers,

The Season of Heritage begins with...Swinub?!

Professor Willow has just discovered some mysterious ruins—and within them sits a most mysterious door. Its exceptional locking mechanisms suggest that an incredible power may be sealed within...

After intense scrutiny, Blanche has determined that the door’s first mechanism requires a vast amount of Stardust to unlock, as well as the help of both Ice-type and Ground-type Pokémon. Help Professor Willow and Blanche by catching Pokémon such as Swinub!
