Rockin in the the new year

Not everyone is into hatted Pokémon, and that’s understandable, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. However, hidden behind the glittery hats and glasses, is a giant pile of Stardust to be made via hatching some eggs. 19,200 Stardust from hatching 12KM Eggs while running a Star Piece? I’ll take that all day!
