Holiday in 2016 is the first Holiday event in Pokémon GO.

Features

Each day during the event, trainers were awarded a single-use Egg Incubator when they visited their first PokéStop of the day. There was also a greater chance of obtaining Pokémon Eggs which would hatch Baby Pokémon from Johto region. [1]

Lure Modules' duration were also increased up to a whole hour, rather than their normal 30 minutes. [1]

Featured Pokémon

Two weeks prior to this event, on December 12th, 2016, Johto-region Baby Pokémon were released. Pikachu and Raichu wearing festive hats began to circulate the same day. They were available until the end of this Holiday event, [2] and any captured would persist in the inventory if not transferred. [3]

Additionally, from the afternoon of December 30th, 2016, through the afternoon of January 8th 2017 (PST), starter Pokémon and their evolved forms were encountered more often. [1]
