Pokémon Go holiday event kicks off with new Pokémon and bonuses

Officially this time.

Last night word about Pokémon Go’s holiday event was teased, but not all the details where there. Well, now we have the details!

Starting on Friday 22nd December at 8am AEDT a number of different holiday events are happening. Festive Pikachu with his Santa hat is back, new Ice and Water-type Pokémon from Generation 3 will be appearing as well as Ice-type Pokemon in general.

There’s also a new type of daily bonus for spinning PokeStops, a free single use incubator.

As a special bonus, the first PokéStop you visit each day between December 22 at 1:00 p.m. PST and December 25 at 1:00 p.m. PST will award you a single-use Egg Incubator with your first Photo Disc spin, so make sure to check in every day to collect an incubator.

There are also some different items in the store that will be on sale this week and then after Christmas.

Don’t miss out on your chance to stock up for your holiday adventures with special boxes from the in-game shop, featuring the best deals of the year. From December 21 through December 25 at 1:00 p.m. PST, special boxes will feature items such as Super Incubators, Lure Modules, and the all-new Star Pieces, which earn bonus Stardust for 30 minutes when activated. From December 25 at 1:00 p.m. PST through January 4, 2018, keep an eye on the in-game shop for special boxes, featuring items such as Premium Raid Passes, Super Incubators, and Star Pieces.

With this plus the previously announced AR+ mode, will you be getting out and catching some new Pokémon?
