The time has come for the annual Pokemon Go holiday event. This year’s event will take place by January 1. This time around, coaches from around the world will have the chance to catch holiday-themed Pokemon, complete new exclusive field research tasks, and even add some new Gen 5 additions to their collections.
As this is a holiday event, some special Pokémon will make a bonus appearance. Throughout the holidays, Sneasel, Delibird and Snorunt will appear in the world much more often than normal. Some lucky coaches might have the chance to grab a Shiny version of Snover and add it to their ever growing collection. This event will also be the first chance for coaches to catch Cubchoo. This adorable polar bear is from Pokemon black and white.
In addition to these vacation variations, trainers can meet another new Gen 5 Pokémon, Cryognal.
