There’s one more surprise event for the Season of Alola! Get ready to battle during this one-day-only GO Battle Day event. Since Pokémon GO’s GO Battle League Interlude Season is ending soon, Trainers will have a day dedicated to battling their way up to Rank 20 and earning even more Stardust. Aptly called the GO Battle Day: Stardust Surprise, there’s another surprise here for Trainers. For the first time, you can bring your Mega Evolved Pokémon to the fight in GO Battle League! Just make sure to Mega Evolve your Pokémon prior to battle and you’ll be limited to the Master League.
