Pokémon Go loves to dangle rare Pokémon baits to re-activate dormant players over festive seasons. During Halloween, Pokémon Go was flooded with ghost-type Pokémon such as Haunter and Gastly. We also saw an increase in the hard-to-find Pikachu during Christmas and of course, the starter Pokémon during the start of 2017. For Valentine’s Day, Niantic will be increasingly the spawn rate of pink (specifically pink) Pokémon, like Chansey, Clefable, and the ultra-rare Porygon! Plus, you will also be given more decent chances to hatch a second-generation pink pokémon from an egg, like Cleffa, Igglybuff, Smoochum and other perks! The Valentine’s Day event will arrive in Pokémon Go at 3am on 9 February and end at 3am on 16 February 2017. Take advantage of it while you can!
1. Stock Up On Your Porygon
Porygon is one of the rarest Pokemon in the game. With increased regularity in spawns, it might actually be seen by more than 1 out of every several hundred users! Although Mew is a Pink Pokemon, it would be one of the LAST Pokemon we’d expect to appear without warning.
2. Pinky Pokémon Flood The Map
The confirmed pink Pokémon that will be increasing their spawn rate are Chansey, Clefable, Porygon, Clefairy, Exeggcute, Jigglepuff, Wigglytuff, Lickitung, Slowpoke and Slowbro!
3. Hatch Your Pink Babies
You will also get a better chance of hatching Cleffy, Igglybuff and Smoochum during the love festival.
4. Double Candies
During the season of love, the amount of candy you will get from catching Pokémon in the wild will double. Buddy Pokémon will find candy twice as fast as usual. This makes rare Pokémon like Dragonite, which requires 100 candy, and Gyarados, which requires an insane 400 candies, much more attainable. Plus, you will also enjoy doubles the candy you get from transferring Pokémon to the professor, and from hatching eggs. Make sure you do all your transferring of unwanted Pokémon within the timeframe of the event.
5. 6 Hours Lure Module Instead Of 30 Minutes
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.
If you have not been switching on your Pokémon Go for a while, it is time to go back again and take advantage of these lovely perks during Valentine’s Day!
