Shiny Pokemon GO holiday update live: Prep for Eevee!

It’s time for the holiday event in Pokemon GO, the winter holiday, the second-most excellent time of the year! The first-most excellent time of the year in Pokemon GO is, of course, Halloween – but we’re at the second once again, and that’s OK, so long as we’ve got cookies! This event will bring lots of wintery fun, starting today, with a bunch of fancy new hats and sweaters!

It’s the 23rd of December today, in the year 2019, which means we’re right on top of the holiday event in Pokemon GO – the one that runs through Christmas and right on into New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. This day ends the run of Lugia and Ho-Oh 5-star raids – that’ll end at 1:00 p.m. PST (GMT −8) today (Monday, December 23), then things will get really interesting!

Start hatching eggs right now – and spin those Pokestops! In Pokemon eggs right now are a wild variety of Pokemon that wouldn’t normally appear at all! The following four monsters are in the mix right now, and remember – they’ll only appear in eggs that dropped today and forward – eggs you got a week ago will still have old Pokemon!

• Alolan Sandshrew
• Alolan Vulpix
• Pichu wearing beanie
• Stantler wearing bells

Starting today – so long as you’ve got the latest version of the Pokemon GO – you can attain your very own seasonally-appropriate toques. That’s also known as a beanie – or whatever you’d like to call it. Also you can get Stantler horns! And a sweater! And you can catch the following NEW Pokemon starting today!

• Shiny Stantler wearing bells
• Shiny Snover
• Cubchoo (debut!)
• Beartic (debut!)
• Cryogonal (debut!)

Starting tomorrow, there’s a big series of event bonuses that change every day. They begin with catch candy and transfer candy!

• December 24: 2× Catch Candy, 2× Transfer Candy
• December 25: 2× Catch Candy, 2× Transfer Candy
• December 26: 2× Catch Stardust
• December 27: 2× Catch Stardust
• December 28: 2× Catch XP*
• December 29: 2× Catch XP
• December 30: 1/2 Hatch Distance in incubators
• December 31: 1/2 Hatch Distance in incubators

*There’s also a big event that’ll take place on December 28. This big event will include 2-hour Glacial Lure Module duration, Special Glacial Lure Eevee evolution, 2 extra Raid Passes (during event only), and Regice in 5-star raids!

The move “LAST RESORT” will appear with an evolved Eevee transformed into Glaceon during this event ONLY. Per the release from Niantic, “If you use the Glacial Lure Module trick to evolve Eevee during the event, you’ll get a Glaceon with a special charged attack.”
