I’m so disappointed with this year’s Christmas event in Pokémon Go. It seems that the only thing you can get is a Pikachu or Raichu with a Christmas hat on it. The Christmas Pikachu and r
Raichu will be catchable until the 29th of December 2016.
They may, in the future, have some value if Niantic decide to implement a Pokémon trading system.
Unrelated to Christmas, but happening at the same time, Niantic have announced that you can now catch Togepi and Pichu by hatching Eggs. I guess 2km eggs. They’ve also announced that more Pokemon will be added. The announcement read as though it would be a gradual addition, rather than a release, which is less exciting. I suppose there trying to get people constantly using the app.
