Pokemon Go has added a few more presents under the Christmas tree. The mobile app announced that they had added special holiday item packs to their in-game store, which will be available for the next two weeks at a discounted price.

Beginning this morning through December 30th, players will be able to purchase Special, Great, and Ultra Boxes that contain a combination of Great Balls, incubators, incense, and Ultra Balls. The boxes are available at a severely discounted rate than what's usually available at the store.

Prices are as follows:

Special Boxes: 10 Great Balls and 2 Egg Incubators for 250 coins

Great Boxes: 20 Great Balls, 2 Incense, and 4 Egg Incubators for 550 coins

Ultra Boxes: 20 Ultra Balls, 25 Incense, and 6 Egg Incubators for 1500 coins

Beginning on December 30, these boxes will be swapped out for Bronze, Silver, and Gold Boxes that contain an unspecified mix of Incense, Lure Modules, Poke Balls, and Lucky Eggs. 

The packs aren't the only holiday treat Pokemon Go has for players. Starting this morning through December 30th, players can obtain special single use incubators at PokeStops, along with an increased chance to obtain eggs that contain newly introduced Johto Pokemon. Pokemon Go is also throwing a New Year's event next week that will unleash more Kanto Starter Pokemon (Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle) and their evolutions into the wild.
