It’s a new year, and that means new adventures for all you trainers out there, and Niantic is wasting no time in throwing Pokémon Go players into the action. As detailed in a recent blog post, you can all dive into the Season of Heritage’s Mountains of Power event tomorrow, and it promises to be a good time if you’re after certain Pokémon.

The Pokémon Go Mountains of Power event continues the Season of Heritage story, tasking you with helping Spark open the mysterious door in the mountains. In order to succeed in your goal, you’re going to need the help of steel and rock-type Pokémon. Fortunately, the mountains in Johto and Sinnoh are full of such creatures.

Throughout the Mountains of Power event, various Pokémon appear more frequently, including Machop, Geodude, Slugma, Nosepass, Barboach, Zubat, and, if you’re lucky, Onix or Ferroseed might also appear. On top of that, should you complete the field research tasks, Alolan Geodude and Mawile may pop up.

Other event bonuses include walking half the distance to earn hearts with your buddy, with the timed research focusing on buddy candy, catching Pokémon, and hatching eggs.
