Pokémon Go source code suggests a holiday-themed event is coming soon
Niantic may be offering players extra gifts soon.
The code unveiled a variant icon for the shop and text indicating that “holiday items” will be available. Icons were also found for special present boxes, but it is unknown how to obtain them or what they contain.

There isn’t conclusive evidence to say if these bonuses will be paid or not, but they seem to be associated with the shop, accessible from Pokémon Go’s main menu. If Niantic is planning to roll out something for Christmas, the update will likely go live very soon, as previous events have started a few days before the holiday they commemorate. The only current seasonal celebration for the game, a festive Pikachu, will be available until Dec. 29.
