New Year’s event in Pokemon GO will be an eventful one, featuring Slowpoke wearing 2020 glasses.
The event will begin on Thursday, December 31st, 2020, at 10:00 p.m. and will end on Monday, January 4th, 2021, at 10:00 p.m. local time. Some Pokemon wearing party hats or other costumes will be appearing in the wild. If you catch Slowpoke with 2020 glasses, when you evolve it, you will get Slowbro wearing 2021 glasses. This Pokemon will also be hatching from the 2km Eggs. Pichu and Pikachu will be wearing a New Year’s hat, while Pichu will be hatching from 2km Eggs. If you want to own a Raichu that is wearing the New Year’s hat, all you need to do is to evolve a Pikachu with a New Year’s hat.
We will be seeing Wynaut hatching from 2km Eggs, and Raticate, Klink, Espurr, Wobbuffer, and Wurmple with the hats will be featured as Raid Bosses in one-star Raids. As a new Field Research reward encounter, we will have Eevee with a party hat. The boxes that we usually have in the shop, during this event will be switched and will contain other items, and we will be getting new avatar items on Wednesday, December 30th, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. PST (GMT-8).
Of course, every event is accompanied by some kind of bonuses, and this time we will be having 2x Hatch Candy, 2x Hatch Stardust, and ½ Hatch Distance if you place an Egg in an Incubator during the event.
