Fans have loved the previous Pokemon GO events and Niantic has been paying attention. With the day of love just around the corner, the Pokemon GO Valentine’s Day event is the perfect way for Niantic to show fans some love.
The Pokemon GO Valentine’s Day event is currently live and will run until 15 February 2017. During this sweet Pokemon GO Valentine’s Day event, Trainers will be earning double Candies for transferring, hatching, or catching Pokemon in the game. Your Buddy Pokemon is also feeling the love and will collect Candies twice as fast during this Pokemon GO Valentine’s Day event.
Similar to the Halloween Pokemon GO event, certain Pokemon will be spawning more frequently during the Pokemon GO Valentine’s Day event. These pink Pokemon include Chansey and Clefable. Pink baby Pokemon like Igglybugg and Smoochum will also be more likely to hatch from Eggs during this Pokemon GO Valentine’s Day event.
The sweetest part about this Pokemon GO Valentine’s Day event has to be the fact that Lure Modules will last for SIX HOURS! Usually, Lure Modules merely last for 30 minutes, so Trainers would be nuts not to take advantage of this awesome event.
