Starting 12 December at 10 am PST, you can add “Togepi, Pichu, and select Pokemon originally discovered in the Pokemon Gold and Pokemon Silver video games” to your Pokedex.
You can find them by visiting and spinning PokeStops and acquiring Eggs, which might hatch into the new Pokemon.
But if you’re really lucky, you’ll encounter a special edition Pikachu, according to Niantic.
To top it off, in order to celebrate the holidays, you can also find Pikachu creatures wearing Santa hats.
While it’s not the most inclusive thing and could be seen as deaf to the many cultures that grace this beautiful planet of ours, it is cute.
Niantic has finally given players of its Pokemon Go augmented-reality game some new Pokemon to find.
