Holiday in 2019 is the fourth Holiday event in Pokémon GO.[1]

Unlike other events, this event is based on local time rather than Pacific Time.

Features

Ice-type Pokémon appeared more frequently in the wild with the return of festive Pikachu and Delibird. Festive forms of Stantler and Pikachu were hatching from 7-km Eggs. Shadow Delibird made their debut when battling Team GO Rocket Grunts. Like previous events, Trainers also earned a free single-use Incubator once per day via spinning a Photo Disc on a PokéStop until January 1.

This year Holiday event was packed with a series of bonuses, including:

  • December 24 to 25 – double Candy from catching and transferring.
  • December 26 to 27 – double Stardust from catching.
  • December 28 to 29 – double XP from catching.
  • December 30 to January 1 – half hatching distance.
  • December 24 to January 1 – open 40 Gifts, carry 20 gifts and Trainers also earned a free single-use Incubator once per day via spinning a Photo Disc on a PokéStop.
