After weeks of waiting, Pokemon GO players finally are getting some information about this year’s holiday event. In addition to the opportunity to catch a new batch of water- and ice-types, trainers also are going to have some serious motivation to power through the chilly weather and visit some nearby stops.
The winter event will offer a chance to earn some free incubators, which may be the best present of all for Pokemon GO players. Hatching eggs is a staple of the game, but the incubator items are fairly expensive for players who are trying not to spend any real money in-game. This holiday gift should help out on that front.
Pokemon GO players will be able to receive one free incubator per day during the event. Here are the details…
“As a special bonus, the first PokéStop you visit each day between December 22 at 1:00 p.m. PST and December 25 at 1:00 p.m. PST will award you a single-use Egg Incubator with your first Photo Disc spin, so make sure to check in every day to collect an incubator.”
So don’t forget to get outside at least once per day over the holiday and spin a Pokestop! Even if they are only single-use, we won’t look a gift incubator in the mouth…
The appearance of new pokemon is sure to get players out and about during the upcoming week, so most trainers will likely have no problem collecting their free incubators. If you happen to be in a rural area and need to make a long trip to collect the prize every day, we feel your pain.
Good luck out there, trainers!
