by on December 17, 2018

With a week to go for Christmas, Niantic has detailed the holiday celebrations for Pokemon GO.

Delibird returns with some friends for the holidays in Pokemon GO. Beginning December 18, ice-type Pokemon will appear more frequently including Sneasel, Jynx, and more. Pikachu gets festive with a holiday hat until January 2, 2019 as well. The rest of the holiday celebrations including the shop items are below from Niantic:

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! 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.

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!

Excited about showing your holiday spirit? Outfit your avatar with the Delibird-themed sweater, gloves, and boots, available on December 18 in the Style Shop!

Pokemon GO is available on iOS and Android devices.
