Pokémon Go is gearing up for some festive fun as the holiday season settles upon fans. There are a number of different events and activities coming up intended to get Go players up and moving, catching Pokémon and trading with one another. For the next several weeks, there’s a wide variety of things to look forward to, so let’s look at what developer Niantic has to say about each:

  • Supereffective Week: Did you know that Fairy-type moves are super effective in battle against Fighting-type Pokémon? Or that Psychic-type Pokémon are weak to Bug-type moves? Take part in Supereffective Week to learn more about Pokémon types, and you might discover an exciting Pokémon to partner up with in battle against Team GO Rocket!
