Even though it is not technically a part of this event, we know Ho-Oh will be the 5-Star Raid Boss. The same goes with the Megas; Mega Abomasnow, Mega Charizard Y, and Mega Blastoise will be your Mega Raid Bosses.
Event-wise, we know the 1-Stars; they are pictured below; what we don’t know is if there will be any event 3-Star Raid Bosses. We will update this section once reports start coming in.
We know that New Year’s Hat Pichu, 2020 Glasses Slowpoke, and Wynaut will all be available in 2KM Eggs. Will there be more? Only time will tell, but, if there are we will update the table below!

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!
