Pokemon GO: How Niantic Can Make Its Christmas Event Better
Pokemon GO recently dropped its Christmas event with the latest update. While players were expecting a slew of promos and limited-time content, we only got a Pikachu wearing a Santa hat. It's adorable, sure, and understandable since it's the official franchise's mascot. Yet, Niantic can do way better than that. With just a little effort, they can make their Holiday event really one of a kind.
Spread The Pokemon GO Christmas Event Feel To Other Monsters
First off, I think we all want Niantic to spread the Santa hat. As of now, only Pikachus can be caught in the wild with the festive accessory, but we want to see more. Aside from Raichu, it would be awesome to see Snorlax with the hat, but let's take it further and equip it with a Santa beard as well. I'm okay with just those two even without a red jacket.
Other Pokemon I want to see all dressed up for the Pokemon GO Christmas Event are Muk, Alakazam, Nido and even Golem. Not that they would look good in them; it's just that they would look absolutely hilarious.
Come to think of it, Diglett and Dugtrio would be perfect for the Santa hat, too. Those bald little critters ought to have some covering on their heads (and please let it not be golden flowing hair). Unfortunately, I think Niantic wants to focus on adorable and cute Pokemon instead, which is no fun.
The Pokemon GO Christmas Event Should Give Us Gifts
It's the gift-giving holiday season, so we Pokemon GO players demand gifts. What's the use of a Christmas event without a little something beneficial to players? A Pikachu with a Santa hat looks damn cute, but what does it do aside from brightening up our inventory? Nothing. The accessory does absolutely nothing. Not even a boost in stats.
Niantic, hear me out: what if Pokemon bearing gifts spawn randomly? Complete with a Santa hat and maybe Christmas lights, these Pokemon will come with wrapped boxes and if you catch them, you also get the gift.
The gifts would also be random: an Incense, a Pokemon Candy, an Incubator, a limited edition clothing for your avatar, potions, Poke Balls or even an Egg with a rare Pokemon inside! The possibilities are virtually endless, so there's no excuse for a sloppy Pokemon GO Christmas Event.
Or You Know, Just Give Us The Pokemon GO Features We Want
We have been asking and asking for trading, PvP and other mainstay features of Pokemon games, but instead Niantic chose to prioritize a partnership with Sprint. For this holiday, can the guys over there just give us what we want? It would be one of the best Christmas gifts ever.
I'm not saying that Niantic isn't already thinking of these things. Who knows, maybe Santa Hat Pikachu is just a taste of what's to come for the Pokemon GO Holiday event. We have about 10 days before the actual Christmas Day, so I'm keeping optimistic that we will get something pretty cool soon.
