As the year draws to a close, we want to give you a great way to celebrate the end of the year with Pokémon GO.
For the next couple of weeks, you’ll have even more reason to explore the world with your friends and family while you
enjoy our year-end event. Don’t miss out on an increased chance to hatch a Togepi (and other Pokémon)!
Starting the morning of December 25, 2016, and through the afternoon of January 3, 2017 (PST),
PokéStops will award one single-use Incubator each day after your first Photo Disc spin. As you visit PokéStops
during this time period, there will be a greater chance of finding Eggs that hatch Togepi, Pichu, and several other
recently found Pokémon, originally discovered in the Johto region. Special Pikachu wearing festive
hats will also be staying around a bit longer! You are more likely to find these limited-edition Pikachu
during the time period of this celebration. In addition, from the afternoon of December 30, 2016, through the
afternoon of January 8, 2017 (PST), the first partner Pokémon and their Evolutions, originally discovered in the
Kanto region, are more likely to be encountered. This means a greater chance to catch Bulbasaur, Ivysaur,
and Venusaur, as well as Charmander, Charmeleon, and Charizard, plus Squirtle, Wartortle, and Blastoise!
As a way to increase your chance to encounter one of these Pokémon, Lure Modules
will also last for 60 minutes instead of 30 minutes. Get up and go! —The Pokémon GO team
