Pokémon Go's Holiday Event Brings New Pokémon, Free Incubators

Pokémon Go's annual holiday event is looking a little more crowded than usual this year, as it will bring not only the return of the festive Pikachus, Deliberd, and free incubators from spinning discs, but new critters as well.

Munchlax, the pre-evolved version of Snorlax, will be added when the event next week, starting on December 18. They will be joined in 7km eggs by more common appearances by Smoochum and Azurill. Also in the update is the addition of Snover and its evolution Abomasnow, as well as Chingling, Croagunk, and the introduction of legendary Pokémon Azelf, Mespirit, and Uxie.

Of course, there are also the usual perks of it being the holidays in Pokémon Go as well. From December 18-22, players will earn double candy from catching monsters; from December 22-26, they'll earn double stardust; after that until December 30, they'll earn double experience points. Finally, from December 30-January 2, all those incubators you might have will be more effective at hatching eggs. There will also be new clothes in the shop in the style of Delibird.
