Pokémon GO players have been salivating at the notion of gen 2 monsters showing up in the game, but the holiday update isn't quite so grand. Okay, it's a lot less grand. There are a handful new Pokémon, which can only be hatched from eggs. Oh, and Pikachu has a new hat.
Eggs hatched in the game now have a chance of revealing Togepi and Pichu. There are also apparently "select others," which are reportedly Cleffa, Elekid, Magby, Igglybuff, and Smoochum. It's a bit weird that you can't find these Pokémon in the wild. That means you'll have to buy incubators and do a lot of walking to increase your chance of finding them.
One thing you might run across in the wild is Pikachu wearing a Santa hat. This special edition Pikachu will only appear through December 29th at 10AM PST. The hat is the only difference, but you still kind of want it, right?
