Niantic, creators of Pokémon GO are rolling out some special treats for Christmas including new Pokémon and a festive Pikachu.
As the company keeps the updates rolling in Niantic have taken a festive approach in the latest. Following the introduction of Ditto, the shape-shifting Pokémon, last month come a few new additions including Togepi and Pichu with the promise of ‘select others’ to be included too.
Although one of the rarer Pokémon to find, if you are lucky enough to stumble upon a Pikachu you might find that the little critter is wearing a festive Santa hat ahead of Christmas.
The game’s loading screen also bears a new look with Pikachu, Snorlax, Squirtle and others getting into the spirit of the holiday season by decorating a Pokéstop with lights.
