This New Year’s Niantic is making sure to spread the holiday cheer. They are offering a special on going Pokemon holiday event. Throughout this time you will have a greater chance at catching a partner Pokemon.
It will begin on the morning of December 30th and end on the afternoon of January 8th. During this time first partner Pokemon and their evolution are going to have their encounter rates raised way up. Tons of Kanto partner Pokemon are going to be roaming the area in big numbers so be sure to break out a lure model and start looking for a partner.
During this time more modules will also be much more effective. Once you activate a module it will last for 60 minutes instead of only lasting for 30 minutes. It gives you double the time and effectiveness so you have a greater chance of catching some new Pokemon.
