Pokémon GO: Hatchathon & Brazilian Safari Zone

There’s a new event happening in Pokémon GO and you may want to stretch before you participate! Read the information posted to the official site below.

Welcome a brand-new year with the Adventure Sync Hatchathon! To celebrate new beginnings, Trainers will enjoy bonuses for hatching Eggs from January 2 at 1:00 p.m. PST to January 15 at 1:00 p.m. PST. Make sure your shoes are tightly laced for a long journey, as you’re more likely to receive 5 km and 10 km Eggs from PokéStops and Gyms.

Don’t forget to activate Adventure Sync to make your steps count toward hatching Eggs while you’re on the go! Enjoy more ways to stay on top of your well-being for the New Year while working toward rewards with a weekly fitness summary as you start your New Year’s resolutions off on the right foot.
