Here Are All The Bonuses You Can Get In Pokemon Go This Christmas
Is there anything cuter than these Pokemon in a Christmas hats?!
Christmas is coming to Pokémon Go!
From December 18th 2018 - which is when the Pokémon Go Holidays 2018 event kicks off - ice-type pokemon will appear more frequently in the wild. These include Jynx, Sneasel, Swinub, Snorunt, Spheal, and Snover! "Certain other Pokémon" are also getting into the festivities, according to our pals at Niantic - so you might see holiday-ready Pokémon, such as a Pikachu wearing a festive hat, too!
"What’s celebrating the holidays without gifts? Pokémon such as Smoochum, Azurill, and Munchlax will have a greater chance of hatching from 7 km Eggs, so show your friends you care by sending them special Gifts!" says Niantic. "In order to help with hatching during the holiday season, Trainers will also earn a free single-use Incubator once per day via spinning a Photo Disc on a PokéStop until January 2."
And that's not all…
"To keep the celebrations coming, there will be plenty of bonuses throughout the event! From December 18 to December 22, Trainers will be able to enjoy double Candy for catching and transferring Pokémon. Then, from December 22 to December 26, earn double Catch Stardust to help power up your Pokémon! From December 26 to December 30, earn double XP when you catch Pokémon to help you reach a higher Trainer level before the new year! Finally, from December 30 to January 2, Incubators will be twice as effective. Make sure you check in regularly to take advantage of all these exciting bonuses!"
