Niantic previously released the very first holiday event for "Pokemon GO" last month. The previous event was about Halloween and several fans are curious regarding the next event. Rumors claim that the upcoming December event is going to be the biggest update that will be made for the game.

But, before the huge update in December, Niantic will be releasing another update in "Pokemon GO" this coming November 24 Thanksgiving day. According to a report from SlashGear, Niantic might be planning to increase the spawn rate of certain rare Pokemon in a specific area like what happened to the Lapras event in Japan.

Even though Niantic hasn't confirmed this rumor yet, a lot of "Pokemon GO" players are already excited for the upcoming event. Some players are even preparing lots of Pokeballs, Greatballs and Ultraballs in case Niantic suddenly launches the event. According to a report from Pokemon GO Pocket, the Thanksgiving Event will last for 7 days.

Rumors say that the Pokemon that will increase its spawn rate are Snorlax, Dragonite, Lapras, Exeggutor, Gyarados and even Arcanine. Though the said Pokemon are the strongest in "Pokemon GO" for now, some say that they will be overpowered by the time Niantic release the legendary Pokemon such as Mew, Mewtwo, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Lugia and Ho-Oh.

Though Niantic hasn't released any official announcements yet, several "Pokemon GO" fans and players speculate that that the legendary Pokemon will be released in December and it will come along with the most request features by players. And because the December event or update in "Pokemon GO" will be the biggest one, rumor says that the Gen 2 Pokemon, PvP Battle System (where players can challenge each other to a duel using their Pokemon), Trading System (where players can trade their Pokemon freely) will arrive all together.
