Pokemon Go Winter Events Simmer Down

Pokemon Go players have had an exciting last few weeks as Niantic released quite a few bonuses. The app was filled with Pikachu’s wearing Santa hats and special gift boxes with ultra balls stuffed inside.  Trainers found that spawn rates were being increased inside the game for the starter Pokemon and new baby Pokemon were added in at the beginning of December.

According to accounts on r/pokemongo, though, wild Pikachus have lost their hats. This is not surprising as we are quite a bit passed the holidays now. Others report that the store has also stopped selling the special edition gift boxes.  The event was stated to last to the 8th of January and will continue on in the form of the increased spawn rates for starter Pokemon.

Though the winter events are over expect more activity from Niantic coming soon. With holidays like Valentine’s day around the corner, we have a great chance of seeing another round of specials be announced for the game. It’s also worth noting that at any time we could see the release of the remainder of the generation 2 roster on the app.
