Love is in the air with the first Pokémon GO event of 2017, which is focused around Valentine's Day.
From today, players will find that candy is easier to obtain, spawn rates for certain monsters have increased and the chance of hatching rare monsters from eggs is improved.
Here's the official PR:
Niantic, Inc. and The Pokémon Company International are spreading the love to Trainers around the globe with Pokémon GO's first in-game event of 2017. From February 8, 2017 at 11:00 A.M. PST to February 15, 2017 at 11:00 A.M. PST, players will receive double the amount of Candy when catching, hatching and transferring Pokémon, while Buddy Pokémon will find Candy twice as fast for their Trainers. In the spirit of Valentine's Day, adorable pink Pokémon including Chansey, Clefable, Porygon, and others will have increased spawn rates. In addition, Pokémon like Cleffa, Igglybuff, and Smoochum will have a higher chance of hatching from Eggs. Trainers can also celebrate together by deploying Lure Modules that will attract Pokémon for six hours, as opposed to thirty minutes, for the duration of the event.
