POKÉMON Go is gearing up for the Christmas Season, so if you want to escape the family for a few minutes you’ve got a good excuse to go for a walk.
Here’s everything that’s coming up in Pokémon Go from December 19 to December 25.
Mythical Wishes is the new season.
Bergmite takes the spotlight this week
Spotlight hour starts this week on Tuesday, December 20, 2022, from 6pm local time.
The shiny version of Bergmite was just introduced into the game, so this is the perfect time for its spotlight hour.
Bergmite will appear more often during this hour, giving you a good chance to catch a shiny one.
In addition, you will receive double Candy for catching Pokémon while the Spotlight Hour is active. This counts for everyone, not just Bergmite.
Cobalion completes the Swords of Justice in raid hour
Raid hour starts on Wednesday, December 21, 2022, from 6pm local time.
Cobalion is the final Sword of Justice to be available in a raid hour.
It will have its signature ability Sacred Sword once you catch it this week, and it will appear in all gyms as a five-star raid target.
Go Battle League adds the Holiday Cup
The Go Battle League will change on Thursday, December 22, 2022, starting at 8pm UK time.
While the Ultra League remains for another week, the Great League edition of the Holiday Cup will join the party.
Normal, Grass, Electric, Ice, Flying and Ghost types with a maximum CP of 1.5k will be allowed to enter.
Winter Holidays begins its second half
The second half of the Winter Holiday event starts Friday, December 23, 2022, at 10am local time.
Mega Glalie and shiny Bergmite were introduced in the first half of the event.
However, the second half remains a secret, and we won’t find out what’s being introduced until Friday.
Winter Wonderland brings new gifts and rewards
The Winter Wonderland event starts on Saturday, December 24, 2022, at 10am local time.
Last year, the Winter Wonderland event gave players a collection of challenges, research tasks, and gift bonuses.
This year is no different, and the event will start on Christmas Eve and finish at 8pm on Christmas Day.
Hisuian Avalugg saves the raid
Raid day takes place on Saturday, December 24, 2022, from 2pm to 5pm local time.
Following on from spotlight hour, the Hisuian regional form of Bergmite’s evolution Avalugg is entering the game.
During the event you can catch a Hisuian Avalugg in raids, if you didn’t get the chance to evolve one during Tuesday’s spotlight.
