In Pokémon Go, change is constant and exciting. The developers have recently unveiled a new teaser video for the game’s upcoming season, intriguingly titled “Hidden Gems”. Set to launch on June 1st, the new season coincides with the conclusion of the current “Rising Heroes” saga.
The “Hidden Gems” teaser takes viewers on a beachside journey where a woman unearths a radiant, mysterious gem from the sand. This scene, enhanced by the presence of Pokémon characters Krabby and Lucario, intensifies the air of mystery around the forthcoming season. What adventures will these gleaming gems bring to the Pokémon Go universe? Fans can only speculate as they eagerly await the season’s debut.
Speculation around the new season rose to new heights following the April reveal of the Pokémon Go Fest 2023 logo, which featured an array of gems. This significant detail fuelled rumours that the mythical Pokémon, Diancie, may be preparing to make its first appearance in the game. Diancie, a highly anticipated addition, has not been featured in the game before, and its introduction would certainly garner attention, especially among players with a linked Pokémon Home account.
Adding to the intrigue, the teaser potentially hints at another addition – the introduction of Sandygast, a character from the Sun and Moon series. This prediction arises from the video’s opening scene where a small red shovel, eerily similar to the one that sticks out of Sandygast’s head, is seen jutting out from the sand.
Sandygast, characterized by its evolution into Palossand, a Pokémon resembling a fully formed sandcastle, might offer Pokémon Go enthusiasts a fun twist in the form of beach-themed in-game photography opportunities. However, the final details about the “Hidden Gems” season remain under wraps, building suspense for the big reveal. As the Pokémon Go community eagerly awaits more information, it’s safe to say that “Hidden Gems” is shaping up to be a season full of thrilling discoveries and adventures.
