Pokemon Go's huge December Community Day happens this weekend, but that isn"t the only event coming for the hit mobile sport. Niantic has now outlined a number of other events that are taking place this month, and they incorporate a new Special Research mission, a special Raid weekend, and much more.

First, Niantic is rolling out brand new Team Rocket-focused Special Research questline called A Challanging Development. This questline is going to be available until the end of December and will give gamers another chance to confront Group Rocket leader Giovanni. When you can defeat him this 30 days, you"ll be able to rescue Darkness Zapdos.

In addition, you"ll have a chance to emerge different kinds of Pokemon from ovum this month beginning Mon, December 16. The following day time, the Gen 5 Famous Virizion will make its first appearance in the game. You"ll be able to experience the Legendary Pokemon within five-star Raids until January 7th. Virizion isn"t the only Legendary Pokemon you"ll have a chance to capture this month. Ho-oh plus Lugia will also return for any special Raid weekend. Through December 20-23, you"ll have the ability to encounter the two Legendary Pokemon again in five-star Raids.

Finally, Niantic is closing out the particular month with Pokemon Go"s annual holiday event, which usually runs from December 24th until January 1st . In that time, you"ll be able to experience Pichu, Pikachu, Raichu, plus Stantler wearing holiday clothes in the wild and Raids. Ice-type Pokemon like Sneasel, Delibird, and the debuting Cubchoo will also appear more frequently within the wild. You"ll also have an opportunity to catch another new Style 5 Pokemon, Cryogonal, by using Glacial Lures during the occasion, the shiny versions of Snover and holiday Stantler will be available as well.

On top of that, Niantic is providing different bonuses each day associated with Pokemon Go"s holiday 2019 event. You can read more details in the official   Pokemon Go website .
