  • 'Pokémon Go' Christmas Event: How To Catch Santa Hat Pikachu And Raichu

Niantic Inc, the game's developer, announced that new Pokemon, such as Togepi, Pichu and selected others, from the Johto region in Pokemon Gold and Silver video games will be available from today (Dec 13) onwards. But if you resist the urge to catch them and let go of your first three Pokémon, you get a chance to catch Pikachu. Also, there's a bit of a problem with hatching Pokémon eggs in December: trudging 10 km in the snow for an uncertain outcome. And there's a real reason why fans are expecting one: Dataminers unearthed the trappings of 2nd gen Pokémon in the game's code weeks ago, a Silph Road representative told me.

To celebrate the holiday season, a festive Pikachu is coming to Pokemon Go for a limited time. It looks like all regular Pikachus in Pokémon Go have been replaced with a santa hat wearing doppleganger. That way, you would at least know you're working toward something you don't have, but instead it's easy to mix up new and old eggs, and to hatch new ones that yield nothing but something you've gotten 50 times already.

The game also managed to stir up controversy in the country when one Gujarat-based resident filed a public interest litigation (PIL) with the state High Court against Niantic, alleging that the game was hurting religious sentiments of millions of vegetarians by showing eggs in Hindu and Jain temples. This new Pikachu even appears on the Nearby tab wearing a santa hat. As far as coverage is concerned, Niantic seems to be aggressively addressing that as well. It will be interesting to see how many more are added.

"Pokemon Go" has not been spared from bugs and game performance issues though much has been better over the previous months.

Pokémon GO's latest update, which adds baby Gen 2 Pokémon to the egg hatching lottery, has been seen a...mixed reception among fans.

If they want to hatch more eggs, they should spend money for it. In order to hatch eggs, players must put the egg first inside the incubator. All of the 10KM baby Pokémon require 25 Candies to evolve into Electabuzz, Magmar, and Jynx.

Often, when you throw the Pokeball at a Pokémon it will miss and roll away. On Jio's social messaging app, JioChat, Pokemon players have access to an exclusive Pokemon Go Channel. "With over 500 million downloads globally, we are excited to launch Pokemon GO officially in India on the Reliance Jio network", said Mathew Oommen, president, Reliance Jio. All the other stuff that makes Pokémon.
