Niantic has announced that the Pokémon GO equinox event has been extended after players had reported login issues with the location-based game.
The in-game event, which will now run until 1pm PDT on Tuesday 3rd October 2017, rewards players with double Stardust for catching Pokémon and hatching Eggs, has temporarily introduced special 2 km Eggs that could see you hatch Pokémon such as Chansey, Mareep, Larvitar, and others, and awards triple the normal XP when a new Pokémon is registered in the Pokédex.
There are also special boxes that have become available to buy in the shop, that contain items like Lucky Eggs, Lure Modules, and Super Incubators – that will hatch Eggs 1.5 times quicker.
“Early this morning, we discovered an issue which prevented several players from logging into the game. After working with our partners, we were able to resolve the issue and can now confirm that login functionality has fully stabilized,” Niantic explained.
“As a result of this outage, the equinox celebration will be extended by 24-hours and will now end at 1:00 P.M. PDT on October 3. We greatly appreciate your patience and hope to see you out and about earning Stardust and hatching Eggs.”
