Pokémon Go is a 2016 augmented reality mobile game, part of the Pokémon franchise, developed and published by Niantic in collaboration with Nintendo and The Pokémon Company for iOS and Android devices. It became one of the most exciting and unique games of its era.

Niantic has revealed details of what’s coming in Pokémon Go’s December update, and the last month of 2022 will be a busy one for mobile trainers. There will be a whole bunch of new events and raids to participate in for the players and win tons of goodies.

In this article, we will talk about the upcoming event and raids and everything else you need to know about the winter update for Pokémon Go.

Name of the Update

Season of Mythical Wishes is the name of the new seasonal update for Pokémon Go. It will introduce new bonuses, including extra candy, whenever two players trade with each other. The number of gifts that can be used will also increase during the season, with players allowed to open 40 gifts per day and send 125 gifts to other players per day.

New Raids

December’s five-star raids will feature Legendary Pokémon from the Unoba region, with three of the four Swords of Justice — Virizion, Terrakion, and Cobalion — each appearing for a week, followed by Kyurem at the end of the month. The Four Swords of Justice, Caldeo, will make her Pokémon Go debut during a special event on December 10-11.
