    The special edition festive Pikachu has already gone live on December 12 and will be out until December 29, basically covering the whole of the Christmas.

    Niantic Labs Said;

    The new Santachu will be appearing in “large quantities”, so aside from the fun of the special edition character, you’ll be able to stock up on Pikachu candy help you gather enough to evolve into Raichu.

    The Pokemon Go Christmas edition has just started, so you have plenty of time to head out and catch one yourself. And who knows, you may also get Santachu.
