While it hasn't been in the mainstream news since the big craze of 2016, Pokémon Go has gone on to become one of the most popular mobile games of all time.


With in-person festivals celebrating the game and its community, and frequent in-game events, it's an evergreen institution.

It's no longer a game solely focused on catching wild Pokémon, either. There's now another mode that isn't quite as peaceful, and evokes the more traditional Pokémon gameplay... namely, battles.

Pokémon Go Battle League is now in its 19th season, and the rewards are looking nice. Let's take a closer look at both the mode, and the rewards on offer.

What is Pokémon Go Battle League?

The Go Battle League is a mode within Pokémon Go that allows Trainers to do battle with each other, rather than solely catch 'em all.

First introduced back in 2020, it brought with it a leaderboard to show the top Trainers across the globe.

Now in its 19th season (called The Season of the Shared Skies) there's been a plethora of cups, rewards and goodies.
