On the other hand, Niantic urges "Pokemon Go" trainers to share the limited version Pikachu that will spawn a festive Christmas hat to commemorate this season caught using #HolidayPikachu.When evolved, Raichu will be as festive as well.
Like during the Halloween, trainers expect a Christmas event to happen. According to Daily Star, dataminers have seemingly leaked details about the it ahead of the Gen 2 release and upcoming annoucement from Niantic. It will be as holiday-related as the former when most Ghost pokemons were released in the wild.

Rumor has it that the program will happen during the release of merry costumes and items.

Beginning at this very hour, expect to see people walking, eyes looking at their phones and giving no care about everybody in the street. People will have to understand that catching pokemons and hatching eggs are both serious businesses.
