There is no time to rest after the recent Valentine’s Day event as Niantic just announced Pokemon GoLunar New Year event which is fitting for the Year Of The Dog! This new promotion is set to reward trainers with bonuses when they catch certain dog-like Pokemon. Just like the Valentine’s Day event, the Lunar New Year event will only be around for a very brief period of time, running from 15 – 17 February 2018. If you are bored during house-visiting, it is time to whip out your Pokemon Go & start catching especially when Pokemon Go Rayquaza & New Gen 3 Pokemon are out & about!
1. Pokemon Go Lunar New Year – Niantic Announcement
February 16, 2018, marks the start of the Lunar New Year and the beginning of the Year of the Dog. To celebrate this festive occasion, Pokémon GO will be hosting a special Lunar New Year Event from February 15–17 highlighting Pokémon that resemble real-life canines.
During this time, expect to see plenty more Poochyena, Growlithe, Eevee, Snubbull, and Electrike appearing in your area. As an extra bonus, you will receive three times the usual amount of Stardust when you capture them, which will come in handy when you’re looking to power up your Pokémon.
Step out and catch as many of these Pokémon as you can during the event—the more you collect, the faster you’ll be able to evolve them. It’s a good way to add the likes of Mightyena, Arcanine, and Manectric to your team. And hey, while you’re out playing Pokémon GO, you could take your favourite furry friend for a nice walk, too! It’s a win-win for everyone involved—human or pooch!
2. Pokemon Go Lunar New Year – More Dog Pokemon Spawns
Poochyena, Growlithe, Snubble, Eevee and Electrike will spawn more frequently for the duration of the event. So if you are low on these Dog-type Pokemon, this will be the best opportunity to stock up on them!
3. Pokemon Go Lunar New Year – Earn Triple Stardust!
To celebrate the start of the Year of the Dog, trainers will earn triple the normal amount of Stardust when they capture Poochyena, Growlithe, Snubble, Eevee, or Electrike. Amazing chance to power up all your Pokemon!
4. Pokemon Go Lunar New Year – 6 Hours Lures Continues
With this new event, Lure Modules continue to work for six hours instead of the usual 30 minutes. Pokemon Go will keep the incentive going until all of this month’s events were wrapped up.
5. Pokemon Go Lunar New Year – Valentine’s Day Event Extension
Pokemon Go’s Valentine’s Day event was scheduled to conclude on 15 February. But due to a server issue that prevented many players from logging in to the game, Niantic has extended the event by an additional 24 hours. That gives players another chance to encounter increased spawns of Luvdisc and Chansey and earn triple Stardust for each one they catch.
We hope you will have a great time catching Dog Pokemon while visiting your loved ones this lunar new year! Gong Xi Fa Cai to everyone and may you have an pawsome Year Of The Dog!
