Pokémon Go is giving players extra opportunities to catch and hatch Pokemon this holiday season, the augmented reality game announced.

Don’t miss out on an increased chance to hatch a Togepi (and other Pokémon)! Starting the morning of December 25, 2016, and through the afternoon of January 3, 2017 (PST), PokéStops will award one single-use Incubator each day after your first Photo Disc spin,” a post on Facebook reads.

The game will also provide users more opportunities to catch Picachus in Santa Hats, which will be available in the game after the Christmas holiday, and Pokémon including Bulbasaur, Ivysaur, and Venusaur, Charmander, Charmeleon, Charizard, Squirtle, Wartortle and Blastoise.

Pokémon Go was one of the summer’s most popular games, with Apple reporting the game broke records in the company’s App Store.
