The Holiday 2017 event for Pokémon GO is now live. The event coincides with the release of new Water- and Ice-type Pokémon in the game.

During the event, festive hat Pikachu appear in the wild, just like last year's event. Additionally, Ice-type Pokémon appear more often. The end date for the event as a whole has not been announced.

Additionally, new Water- and Ice-type Pokémon from Generation III have been added to the game, including the Feebas, Carvanha, Wailmer, Luvdisc, Relicanth, and Snorunt evolutionary lines, among others. These Pokémon will remain even after the event ends. Delibird is also available in the game.

Between December 22 and 25 (1 pm PST), the first Photo Disc the player spins each day (at a PokéStop or Gym) will award a single-use Egg Incubator.

Furthermore, special boxes are available from the in-game shop.
