As for Ho-ho, you may be able to find its different colour for the first time in “Pokemon Go”.
In addition, new dress-up items such as “2022 Glasses” and stickers will be available. They will be available in the in-game shop and other places as soon as the event starts.
Let’s play with Pokémon in the New Year.
