The story of the Season of Heritage is continuing to unfold with Pokémon Go’s newest event, Mountains of Power.

This event puts a focus on Rock and Steel-type Pokémon as players work with Team Instinct leader Spark to unlock the second mechanism keeping the mysterious door discovered at the beginning of the season locked shut. 

During the Mountains of Power event, which will run from Jan. 7 to 13, players will be able to encounter Mega Aerodactyl in Mega Raids for the first time. Shiny Slugma will also be making its first appearance in Pokémon Go for players lucky enough to encounter one. 

There’s even new Timed Research, which focuses on catching Pokémon, hatching eggs, and earning Buddy Candy. Players can also earn hearts with their Buddy Pokémon faster thanks to halved walking distance requirements during the event.
