Niantic has rolled out a new update for “Pokemon Go” with patch 0.51.0. The update comes in time for the Christmas season, addressing bugs and issues than new enhancements.

Among the issues that “Pokemon Go” patch 0.51.0 include fixing the unusual vibrations that occur during the game and properly syncing the day and night cycle, something that should see players getting the right date and time. Minor text issues have also been improved, technically rounding up the major things that patch 0.51.0 brings, Neurogadget reported.

As one can see, there are not eye-catching features to look forward to with the latest “Pokemon Go” 0.51.0 patch. Apparently there were some AR players hoping to get some new updates tied up to Christmas in-game event from Niantic. So far, the only Christmas-related perk was the spawning of the Santa-Hat Pikachu.

Aside from that, most are in waiting on what Niantic has planned for its in-game event this Yuletide season. Based on how the Halloween and Thanksgiving events went for “Pokemon Go”, many are expecting lots of goodies as well as spawns from pocket monsters happening in the coming days.

As mentioned in a previous post, the “Pokemon Go” in-game Christmas event should have happened by now. With Christmas just days away, some may be forced to extend their wait on the festive week from Christmas Eve to New Year’s Day.

There is no official word on how long the Christmas in-game event for “Pokemon Go” would be. A week would be enough though one has to single out the date when the Santa-Hat Pikachu would cease (Dec. 29).

There is a possibility that the Santa-Hat Pikachu availability may not be tied up to the in-game event, meaning two are separate offering by Niantic for “Pokemon Go” players. The wait may be draggy but a special “Pokemon Go” Christmas offering is still awaited by most.
