Pokémon Go spreads love and candy in Valentine's event

Darnell ReidFeb 09, 2017

Following a quiet January, Niantic is kicking off the first Pokemon Go event of the year later today in celebration of Valentine's Day. Furthermore, if you have assigned yourself a Buddy Pokemon, you will be pleased to learn that your companion will find candy twice as fast than it usually does. If you've been hoping to come across some adorable pink Pokemon, but you've been having issues, then you are most definitely in luck. If you think Lure Modules simply don't last long enough, you will be glad to know that they will now last for six hours throughout the Valentine's Day event. So ignore your significant other and start catching Pokemon. In addition, Pokemon like Cleffa, Igglybuff, and Smoochum will have a higher chance of hatching from Eggs. There is going to be plenty going on for the next week, from extra sweets to help evolve your Pokemon to lures that'll last for hours. The event will be enabled by Niantic from the game's servers. You won't need to download any updates regardless of what device (Android or iOS) you use to play Pokemon GO.

The event will run from 11:00 A.M. PST on February 8, 2017, to 11:00 A.M. PST on February 15, 2017. So, it may be worth hanging around Pokemon GO's PokeStops much more than usual for the duration of the event.


Quite frankly, this is a great way to lure people back into the game.
