Pokémon GO New Year Holiday Event

      No Comments on Pokémon GO New Year Holiday Event

One of the most played and searched games of 2016 is the Pokémon GO which is available for both, Android as well as the iOS.

And just at the end of the year, Pokémon GO has again an event for you to be interested about. It’s not the event that many among us predicted, but it does seem like it’s something to get players playing again regardless, even if they’ve less XP.


Actually, Pokémon Go is closing out 2016 with a big holiday event, running through Christmas and into the first few days of the new year.

Starting on the morning of December 25th through the the afternoon of January 3rd, Niantic says there will be a greater chance of finding eggs. And they refer to the eggs that hatch Togepi, Pichu and several other recently found Pokémon.

You’ll also be able to nab a single-use incubator every day after the first spin of a PokéStop’s photo disc in the game. And this means that the features are live right now.

So let’s tell you the overview.

December 25th to January 3rd:

  • PokeStops will give out a single-use Incubator every day but only once in a single day.
    You will now find new eggs that have a greater chance of hatching the Gen 2 Pokémon that Niantic introduced into the game earlier this month, Togepi, Pichu, etc.
  • Pikachus wearing “festive hats” are sticking around longer than the 29th. They were seeded into the game when the company announced the new Pokémon, and the new holiday event will give users a better chance of catching the festive pocket monster.

December 30th to January 8th

  • The first partner Pokémon and their Evolutions, originally discovered in the Kanto region, are more likely to be encountered. And this means that now it’s going to be much more easier to catch fan-favorite monsters Squirtle, Wartortle, Blastoise, Charmander, Charmeleon, Charizard, Bulbasaur, Ivysaur, and Venusaur during this period.
  • Lure Modules will also last for 60 minutes instead of 30 minutes.

This is a very nice holiday treat for those Pokémon faithful, and maybe enough of an incentive to get lapsed players back into the game. So heads up for the Christmas treat.
