Now that Pokemon GO’s Thanksgiving event has come to a close, many are speculating on what Niantic has in store for the Pokemon GO Christmas Event.
While the company in question hasn’t released any official statement as of yet, several rumors are already spreading across the web on people either speculating or claiming what will happen come December.
So let’s go over what some of these speculations and rumors are saying about the mobile hit.
Pokemon GO Christmas Event?
So the first question is, will there actually be a Christmas event? At the time of this writing, there is no confirmation from Niantic if an event will actually take place. But considering they recently celebrated both Halloween and Thanksgiving these past two months, this is very likely to happen.
The next question is, what will Niantic do for this event? The easiest and most likely answer is something similar to both their Halloween and Thanksgiving events.
During the Halloween event, Niantic provided an increase to gaining candy to fit with the theme. In addition to that, they also increased the spawn rate of all Pokemon that fit the spooky season. For the Thanksgiving event, they doubled the amount of XP and Stardust players earn while playing the game.
So given these two cases, it’s safe to assume that they’ll do something similar for Christmas — probably even something bigger given the nature of the holiday. Most likely we’ll see an increase in rewards just like the last two, possibly even for everything you can gain in the game like XP, Stardust, and Candy.
Major Update to Add New Pokemon?
It’s also possible to see an increase in the spawn of, particularly, rare Pokemon. International Business Times speculates that Staryu, Starme, Seel, Dewgong, Clefairy, Clefable and Snorlax will see an increase in spawn rate for the potential event — though this is just their speculation.
In addition to that, many are speculating that the Christmas event will mark the addition of Generation 2 Pokemon, Legendary Pokemon, PVP, and trading. But again, all just speculation for now.
As it is now, there’s nothing we can really confirm and these are just the rumors spreading on the internet. It’s really less on what might come out in December and more of what people want to see come out in December.
For now, all we can do is wait for Niantic to make an official announcement.
