Pokémon GO Celebrates Valentine’s Day With Increased Pink Pokémon Encounters
Love is in the air, as Niantic announce a limited-time celebration in Pokémon GO to coincide with Valentine’s Day.
That will reward players with the chance to collect twice as much Candy with their Buddy Pokémon, pink Pokémon can be encountered more frequently, and Cleffa, Igglybuff and Smoochum are more likely to hatch from Eggs.
“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,” Niantic shared. “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.”
The limited-time Valentine’s Day celebration will run from 11 am PST (7 pm GMT) on Wednesday 8th February to 11 am PST (7 pm GMT) on Wednesday 15th February 2017.
