The new Pokemon Go update that fans have been not so patiently waiting for has finally been announced. It isn't going to have legendary characters and it won't be a release of all of the Generation 2 characters, but you do get something that is pretty cute. All of the baby Pokemon from Pokemon Gold and Silver, including Pichu and Togepi will be coming in egg form.

The best part, however, is that there will be a new Christmas Pikachu.

How Do You Catch Christmas Pikachu?

Now that the Christmas Pikachu has been spotted, it is time to get down to how exactly you can expect to catch it.

There really isn't a trick, this one can be caught like any other normal Pokemon, you just have to get lucky to find it. All of the regular Pikachus have been replaced with a Santa hat wearing version. Everything about the Pokemon is exactly the same - same stats and same moves. This new one even appears in the Nearby Tab wearing the hat.

You won't get a separate Pokedex entry for the Christmas Pikachu, though it is different from a regular Pikachu. This new one will stand out because of the hat, and it is cute enough to not really make a difference.

If you evolve the Christmas Pikachu, you get a Christmas Raichu who is also wearing a Santa hat. No one yet knows if you can catch a Christmas Raichu. You have to act quickly because these are only available until December 29, 2016, at 1 PM EST.
