Pokémon GO’s GO Battle Day event is spanning out into a two-day, all-weekend-long battle extravaganza (appropriately dubbed GO Battle Days via the official Pokémon GO blog and GO Battle Weekend: Steven Stone in January 2023’s infographic). That means Trainers will get two days of extended battling sets (that’s 100 battles per day on Saturday and Sunday), and quadruple Stardust rewards to match. Plus, the official Pokémon GO Twitch channel will also be streaming battle tips during Day 1 of the event.

See what rewards are up for grabs, the Timed Research that’ll be active, and more during this event with our guide below:


Pokémon GO’s Season of Mythical Wishes – GO Battle Weekend: Steven Stone
