The new year is just around the corner, and Pokemon Go is once again providing gamers the opportunity to celebrate in the game. As of Friday, December 31, the celebrations will begin at 10 pm local time and end at 8 pm on New Year’s Day, Jan 4.
Gamers may expect to witness fireworks beginning at 11:00 p.m. on New Year’s Eve. During the event, new Field Research, and Timed Research will be available, allowing players to catch both returning and new dressed Pokemon, such as Hoothoot in a New Year’s Hat and Slowking with 2022 Glasses.
There has never been a chance to get Shiny Hoothoot before. The Shiny New Year’s Hat Hoothoot may be found during the event, while the conventional Shiny will be available after the event. Slowking, on the other hand, seems to have a good idea of what year it’s about to enter. Continuing the slowpoke New Year’s joke, Pokemon Go has brought back the 2020 and 2021 Glasses Slowpoke and Slowbro.
New Year’s Pokemon, including party hat-wearing Gengar, Wobbuffet, and Pikachu, will surface in the wild and hatch from eggs during the celebration. Slowpoke and its evolutions will also be seen sporting New Year’s glasses.
The following are some of the other costumed Pokemon who have returned:
- Party Hat Bulbasaur
- Party Hat Charmander
- Party Hat Squirtle
- Party Hat Raticate
- Party Hat Nidorino
- New Year Hat Pichu
- New Year Hat Pikachu
- New Year Hat Raichu
- Party Hat Gengar
- Party Hat Wurmple
- Party Hat Wobuffet
As well as hatching from 7km eggs, some of these Pokemon will reappear in One-Star and Three-Star Raids throughout the event. As a result, there will be no shortage of chances for players to get them! Additional avatar accouterments, like a New Year’s Headband, 2022 Glasses, and jacket set, trousers, and boots will be available in the game store.
New Year’s stickers will also be available at the store. If you don’t want to spend your hard-earned money, you may get them by spinning PokeStops or receiving presents from friends. Overall, it appears that the game will offer plenty of ways to enjoy the occasion!
