Amid the hype and excitement for "Pokemon Go" Christmas update, there are reports circulating that Niantic might forego the said update. A tight and busy schedule is the possible reason for the "Pokemon Go" Christmas update cancellation.

According to reports, "Pokemon Go" Christmas update might not be able to deliver the appearance of new "Pokemon" and Gen 2 "Pokemon." If ever the "Pokemon Go" Christmas update and in-game events will push through, there is a big possibility that players will have to make do with triple XP.

Game analysts predict that Niantic might try to compensate with the incompleteness of "Pokemon Go" Christmas update and in-game event by raising the XP points more than triple. However, this remains to be confirmed by Niantic.
