The next Pokemon GO event has finally been released by Niantic and players are clearly in for a treat with Astra Eclipse. The final evolution for Cosmog is set to arrive, with Solgaleo and Lunala making their debut in Niantic's popular AR title. Along with them, there will also be a new five-star raid and mega raid bosses later this week.
The Season of Light began back on September 1 and brought along the Nebula pocket monster Cosmog to Pokemon GO. The second part of the chapter was unlocked on October 5 when Cosmoem, the Protostar pocket monster, was introduced to the game.
The Astral Eclipse event will thus mark the final saga of the entire season, with Cosmog and its family being introduced to Pokemon GO.
