Pokémon Go: Quasi-maintenance mode for battle league in season 11

Obviously, things are in a mess with the Battle League in Pokémon Go, and if you ask a passionate trainer battle and Battle League fan about it, they'll probably just roll their eyes wearily. One of the biggest problems is the eternal lags that affect the battle flow

, which players themselves can't do anything about.

In the recent past, Pokémon Go data miners hinted that the developers are working on reworking the game for Websocket and pub/sub mechanics, which in turn could have a positive impact on lags in battle. Are these actually profound changes coming to Pokémon Go and the Battle League now? Because apparently the 11th season for Battle League, which starts at 10:00 p.m. on March 1, 2022, will put Pokémon Go PvP into a kind of maintenance mode for three months.

Battle League maintenance mode, what does it mean?

First of all, the 10th season of the Battle League will run one day longer than previously announced, namely just until March 1, 2022 at 22:00. Thus, the seasons of the Battle League will run synchronously with the seasons in the future. Secondly, the developers of Pokémon Go emphasize the following: "We are suspending the ratings in the new season so that our development team can focus on adjustments for the GO Battle League without this having an impact on the league gameplay. "

En detail this currently means the following; the people from Niantic still want to send you more information about the 11th season of the Battle League

  • The leaderboard stops at rank 20 and there are no visible scores.
  • Cups change weekly and are remakes of previous Special Cups, among other things.
  • We are using this season as an opportunity to test potential new formats for GO battle days and the reward structures.
  • Contrary to custom, no changes will be made to attacks or attack availability at the start of the GO Battle League season, so the current balancing for World Championship Series Pokémon battles will remain unchanged.
  • We will use the Season 10 leaderboard to determine who is eligible for Early Registration for the Pokémon GO World Championship Series.

Waiting for news

As mentioned earlier, it sounds like a sort of temporary maintenance mode for the Battle League. You'll still be able to compete with other trainers, but it won't have a huge impact on anything. Instead, there will likely be a lot of PvP experimentation. We're curious to see exactly how these will turn out; after all, Pokémon Go's Battle League isn't the most popular or played feature of the game anyway.
