Starting from December 21, until December 25 at 1:00 PM PST, there will be special boxes sale including the new Star Piece item, Super Incubators and Lure Modules. Then, from December 25 through January 4, the in-game shop will then feature special boxes with items like Premium Raid Passes, Super Incubators, and Star Pieces. Just like a year ago, players will be able to catch the Santa hat-wearing Pikachu, but this time it's not alone.

Pokemon Go has offered an AR option since its release 17 months ago, but Apple's technology is more advanced than what the game has been using.
