If you haven’t gotten a chance to play Go lately we have some good news for you. Supposedly there is an Easter Event on it’s way to the game to get players back into the groove as the warmer months his us in the U.S. and surrounding countries. This will of course heighten users in App once more which earlier this week showed reduced numbers in user activity.
The Event has a high likely hood of revolving around eggs in some form and is completely in the speculation stages at this point. We could see a rise of candies or a shorter egg hatching time. We may even seen Chansey and Exeggcute get a rise in spawns for the holiday. Maybe, we will even get a Pikachu wearing bunny ears to kick off the event.
None, the less you should be excited for any new additions to the game after the Water Festivals success early this year. Here’s hoping that we get free baskets full of ultra balls when we log in next!
While everyone is celebrating with their families over the holidays Pokemon Go will be giving people a reason to venture off with their loved ones for some boosted gameplay.
Starting December 25th players will be able to more easily acquire the new baby Pokemon added in the last game update. Eggs will not necessarily hatch faster, however, each pokestop will give players a free incubator per day to make hatching eggs easier. Also, there will be increased rates for receiving eggs containing the new baby Pokemon. The incubators are one use, but with increased egg rates they will make hatching a much easier process. There will also be a higher chance of encountering the santa-hat Pikachu during this time. This event will end on January 3rd.
Also, on December 30th the encounter rates for all three first generation starters and their evolutions will be raised as well. This means gathering candies to evolve or power up your starter Pokemon will be much easier, or if you haven’t found all of the starters yet this will be a great opportunity to catch them. This event will end on January 8th.
These events will make filling pokedex entries a lot easier, and are a great holiday treat from Niantic. Good luck catching your Pokemon and be safe out there over the holidays!
