It took some time but we finally got to see what Pokémon GO has planned for December. There’s actually a lot of events happening so trainers are sure to have their hands full. Today, we take a look at the activities offered this Decem.

Let’s start with this month’s Research Breakthrough where trainers can encounter Deino. Those lucky enough can even meet a Shiny one. It’s in effect from December 1 to January 1.

The one-time-purchase bundle is still available and it’s available every Monday this month. This is offered for one PokéCoin and contains a Remote Raid Pass along with other items.
