Update 12/20/16 – Just wanted to point out that this is probably no longer what we will be having for the Christmas event. As of right now, everything below is unconfirmed and a rumor.
With the success of the Pokémon Go Halloween event, it was only a matter of time before they announced one for Christmas as well. Yesterday we reported that the second generation of Pokémon may be releasing in just a couple of days. What effect this will have on the Christmas event has yet to been announced. But we do know what Pokémon will be appearing…
Trainers will be able to find Clefairy, Clefable, Dewgong, Staryu, Starmie, Seel, and Snorlax for this icy cold event. It’s also reported that Niantic will lessen the steps required to hatch eggs and may also receive more bonuses for the Buddy system.
It’s also rumored that the release of Mewtwo, Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres may have something to do with the Times Square event held each year in New York. What this means for people that can’t make it up there is yet to be seen. Again, this is just a rumor and nothing has been confirmed on the Legendary front. We will have to wait and see.
