Hey everyone, now this is just my opinion and so far there is no evidence to say that this will happen, but imagine if there was a Niantic Christmas event.
Niantic this week has begun their Halloween event where players have gone crazy because trainers will be able to get double the candies by catching and transferring Pokémon and quadruple the amount of candies walking with their buddy Pokémon, over Halloween and in the days leading up to this weekend.
Also there is an increase in the spookiest Pokémon spawns keeping the Halloween theme going, such as Drowzee, Hypno, Ghastly, Haunter, Gengar, Goldbat and Zubat.
This event has so far, from what I have seen been successful, with it looking as if more players have picked up the game once again.
We know in recent months this was not the case with millions of players dropping off and loosing interest in Pokémon Go daily but since this event, players have boosted the app back to number 1 in the grossing apps currently in the app store for iOS.
This sound like the Halloween event has been successful so far, so what’s next? How can Niantic retain the interest of these players once Halloween ends?
Well I think it may be in the next major event/holiday on the calendar, Christmas!.
If this event turns out to be as successful as what it looks like it’s going to be, then why would Niantic not want to try and have the same success again in the near future?
Christmas may be the perfect time to do that, with it also being an internationally known holiday. Yes there are many countries who don’t celebrate Christmas, but there are also a number of countries that do and who don’t know or care about Halloween as well.
By that logic I feel that a Christmas event could be possible however, I am not sure what Pokémon will be included in that time, maybe going with a red, white and green theme.
If so Charmeleon, Bulbasaur and Persian (Meowth is apart of the Halloween special) could be option to keep with that colour theme.
This may all still be a long way away, but I feel as if it can happen, so for now get involved with this Halloween event because if its successful enough we should expect more like it to come.
