Pokémon GO Valentine’s Event Announced

Pokémon GO is showing just how much they love their fans this Valentine’s Day by releasing Generation II increasing the amount of candy gained and making some rare Pokémon more common!

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. 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.

This limited-time celebration will only be available from 11:00 A.M. PST on February 8, 2017, to 11:00 A.M. PST on February 15, 2017, so grab your valentine, get out, and explore the world around you!

Ready to fire up GO and grab a pink Pokémon, stock up on candies or try your luck with some lure modules?! Fun fact: Clefairy is actually my buddy Pokémon!
