Pokemon Go's holiday event brings more Pokemon from Ruby and Sapphire

0

Hit up a PokeStop for a daily bonus

It's getting to be that time. Pokémon Go has begun its holiday event and this year that means the return of festive Pikachu, the debut of that little scamp Delibird, more Ruby and Sapphire critters, and gifts.

  • 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.
  • 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.

You'll start seeing fresh-faced Generation III Pokémon beginning today, including Snorunt, Wailmer, Sharpedo, Luvdisc, Relicanth, Feebas, and Milotic, among others. Kyogre is on the way, too.

If you haven't stayed current with Pokémon Go, it's worth bringing up Niantic's new AR+ feature for iOS players that better incorporates the game with the real world during encounters and has you slowly and steadily moving closer toward wild Pokémon for a capture bonus. It looks super neat!

Celebrate the holiday season with Pikachu and friends! [Pokémon Go]
