The moment that all Pokémon Go players have been patiently (or impatiently) waiting for is here. The Valentine’s Day event! It has started to go live for everyone, mine was taking forever to load though. While I still don’t think it is as good as previous events, it’s still something to get players back out there in the mix catching Pokémon again.
Starting today and running through February 15th, players will receive double the candy when catching Pokémon, hatching them from eggs, transferring them, and Buddy candy will be cut in half!
Also, pink Pokémon will have an increased chance of appearing. This includes Chansey, Clefable, and Porygon. Players are also more likely to hatch baby Pokémon including Cleffa, Igglybuff, and Smoochum.
Lastly, lure models will last 6 hours during this event instead of their usual 30 minutes. Wow, 6 hours….that’s pretty insane. If only I had a Pokéstop on top of my house.
