Pokémon Go special events
Since October 2016, Niantic Labs regularly organizes events for the different holidays that dot the year. The objective is of course to attract as many players as possible by allowing them to benefit from bonuses for a limited time. For players, this is an opportunity to capture more Pokémon, receive more items, and progress quickly.
Pokémon Go Eggstravaganza: an egg hunt to celebrate Easter
From April 13 to 20, Pokémon Go is hosting a special event to celebrate Easter. As you might expect, the event is egg-shaped. Throughout the festivities, players will be able to find more Pokémon in eggs that require 2 km of walking to hatch. They will also receive more candies, and the experience gained will be doubled. Finally, Lucky Eggs will be sold at half price in the shop. The opportunity to gain levels faster than usual.
Pokémon Go: The Water Festival
From March 23 to 29, 2017, Pokémon Go is celebrating World Water Day, aiming to draw attention to the global clean water crisis, with a water festival. Throughout the event, players will encounter more Magikarp, Squirtle, and Kaiminus and their evolutions. Lokhlass and Leviator will also appear more frequently. Near water points, other water-type Pokémon will also be more numerous. Finally, it is possible to buy a Magikarp hat using Poképièces.
Pokémon Go: special Valentine's Day event
As part of Valentine's Day, Niantic Labs is organizing a special event. This event takes place from February 8, 2017 and February 15, 2017. During this period, players will be able to enjoy several advantages.
First of all, to celebrate the feast of love, pink Pokémon will be more present than usual in nature but also in eggs. Concretely, Niantic Labs remained very vague on this subject and only mentioned Leveinard and Mélodelfe. However, logically, the other pink Pokémon should also appear more frequently. Trainers should therefore meet more Leveinard, Mélofée, Mélodelfe,
Because Porygon and Leveinard are among the rarest Pokémon in the game, take advantage of the event to capture them. Note, however, that these two creatures will only spawn in their usual nests more frequently. If you've ever had the chance to meet one of these Pokémon in a nest, don't hesitate to return there to capture more. As a reminder, Leveinard often appears in the desert, while Porygon is usually found in cities.
Besides the proliferation of pink Pokémon, Regular players will receive twice the candy for the duration of the event by capturing or transferring Pokémon, incubating eggs, or walking their buddy Pokémon. Finally, the Lure Modules will last for six hours. The opportunity to stay all day in a Pokéstop and, with a little luck, to meet love!
Pokémon Go: special Christmas event
event Pokémon Go Christmas special first happened from December 25, 2016 to January 3, 2017. It is currently unknown whether Niantic Labs plans to set up this event again for the 2017 holiday season. Throughout this period, players have had the opportunity to obtain the Togepi Pokémon by hatching eggs, to receive a single-use incubator per day, to capture a Pikachu in a Santa Claus costume, and to meet more Bulbasaur, Squirtle, Charmander and their respective evolutions.
Pokémon Go: Special Halloween Event
Du October 26 to November 1, 2016, Niantic Labs hosted the very first Pokémon Go in-game event to celebrate Halloween. In this context, players had the opportunity to receive twice as much candy by smoldering, transferring, or capturing Pokémon. Likewise, Buddy Pokémon brought in 4 times more candy than usual. Finally, the scariest Pokémon like Nosferapti, Fantominus or Soporifik and their respective evolutions were more present than usual. It is not yet known whether Niantic Labs plans to roll out this event every year.
Pokémon Go promotional offers
