The latest update to Pokémon Duel bears good tidings for the holidays—that is to say, there’ll be plenty of opportunities to add rare and powerful figures to your collection! The year-end celebration features a variety of special activities that make now a great time to duel, especially if you happened to miss out on some of 2018’s limited-time offerings. Each of the following events occurs during a different time, so pay close attention to the schedule so you don’t miss out on a single bonus! Please note that all times are PST and that this schedule is subject to change.
December 19–January 9 at 6:59 a.m.
Everyone who logs in during the festivities will receive an [EX] Honchkrow figure as a log-in bonus. Boasting a wide range of powerful attacks, [EX] Honchkrow is a formidable addition to any team. We recommend taking advantage of [R] Murkrow’s high MP to close in on your opponent’s goal, then evolving it into [EX] Honchkrow to send opposing Pokémon home to roost!
December 19–January 9 at 5:59 p.m.
Expand your Shiny Pokémon collection! A multitude of Shiny Pokémon will be available for purchase throughout these periods:
- December 19–December 25 at 5:59 p.m.: [EX] Shiny Tapu Koko and [EX] Shiny Genesect
- December 26 at 6:00 p.m.–January 1 at 5:59 p.m.: [EX] Shiny Greninja and [R] Shiny Mimikyu

December 24 at 7:00 p.m.–December 26 at 5:59 p.m.
It’s a developer showdown! As a rare treat, members of the Pokémon Duel development team will show up and throw down in League Matches throughout the event, with guaranteed appearances 4:00–5:00 a.m. and 6:00–7:00 p.m. The more wins the community can muster against these top-tier opponents, the better the rewards for all who participate. If players can claim enough victories, they’ll procure the ultimate prize—a never-before-seen [UX] Pikachu figure!
December 24 at 7:00 p.m.–January 9 at 5:59 p.m.
Happy Holidays Boosters will be available during this period, giving you a chance to nab [R] Alolan Vulpix and [EX] Alolan Ninetales.
