December Research Breakthrough: Deino

Along with a new batch of Field Research tasks and rewards, a new Research Breakthrough encounter will be available in Pokemon Go next month. Each time players achieve a Research Breakthrough in December, they’ll earn a chance to catch the dark/dragon-type Pokemon Deino.

To achieve a Research Breakthrough, you must first earn seven stamps in the game. You’ll receive one stamp for the first Field Research task you complete each day, which means you’ll need to complete tasks over at least seven days to achieve a Research Breakthrough. Fortunately, progress is not reset between months; any stamps you earned last month will carry over until you achieve a Research Breakthrough.

December raid schedule

The legendary Pokemon Reshiram, Zekrom and Kyurem are returning to raid battles in December. The first two will appear in five-star raids from Dec. 1 to Dec. 16, while Kyurem will appear from Dec. 16 to the end of the month. While all three have previously been available in Pokemon Go, this will mark your first chance to catch Shiny versions.

Pokemon Go’s Mega raid rotation is also being refreshed next month. Mega Steelix will make its debut from Dec. 1 to Dec. 23, after which point it will be replaced by Mega Abomasnow. You can see December’s full raid schedule below.

Pokemon Go’s December Community Day will be a two-day event, taking place Dec. 18 and Dec. 19. Throughout the event, you’ll have another chance to get all of the featured Pokemon from 2020 and 2021, along with the special event-exclusive moves they can learn upon evolving. A few in-game bonuses will also be active throughout the event, including increased Incense duration and double XP and Stardust for catching Pokemon.

Swinub Incense Day

The ice-type Pokemon Swinub will star in a special Incense Day event on Dec. 5. From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. local time, Swinub and other ice and ground Pokemon will be attracted to Incense more frequently.

Dragonspiral Descent event

From Dec. 7 to Dec. 12, Pokemon Go will hold an event inspired by the Dragonspiral Tower from Pokemon Black and White. As part of the event, the dragon Pokemon Druddigon will make its Pokemon Go debut. Additional details will be announced at a later date.

Holiday event

Pokemon Go’s annual holiday event returns Dec. 16. Few details have been announced thus far, but the event will feature new costumed Pokemon, plenty of ice-type monsters and various other in-game bonuses.
