Following the success of the festive Pokémon GO event, it’s only natural that Niantic would attempt a repeat performance, so in light of that, for the next week, a new Valentine’s event is underway!
From today until the 15th get ready to be bombarded by Pink Pokémon as the likes of Igglyuff, Cleffa and Smoochum are now more likely to hatch from eggs, while Chansey and Clefable will also be spawning more often and that’s not all. Pokémon GO may not have chocolate, but it does have candy and for the next seven days, all candy earned will be doubled! Consult the official announcement for the full details on the event, which also covers lures lasting twice as long:
Celebrate Valentine’s Day with Us!:
(8th of February, 2017)
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we couldn’t think of a sweeter time to double the amount of Candy you’ll earn every time you catch, hatch, and transfer Pokémon. Your Buddy Pokémon is also getting into the Valentine’s Day spirit and will find Candy twice as fast!
Throughout the celebration, you’ll notice that Chansey, Clefable, and many other adorable pink Pokémon will be encountered more frequently in the wild. Cleffa, Igglybuff, and Smoochum will also be more likely to hatch from Eggs. And to help you paint your town pink this Valentine’s Day, Lure Modules will last for six hours for the entire duration of the event.
This limited-time celebration will only be available from 11:00 A.M. PST on February 8, 2017, to 11:00 A.M. PST on February 15, 2017, so grab your valentine, get out, and explore the world around you!
