It’s almost Valentine’s Day and Pokémon GO is getting into the spirit. Niantic have just announced that a Valentine’s event will last from the 8th to the 15th of February. Not only will Lure Modules last longer and Candy appear more often, the more adorable Pokémon included in the game will be scattered around. For those players still searching for Pokémon in GO, this is a great opportunity to get into the Valentine’s spirit.
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!
