April 13, 2017

Niantic, Inc. and The Pokémon Company International welcome the arrival of Spring today with Pokémon GO’s next in-game celebration, the Pokémon GO Eggstravaganza. From April 13 at 1:00 P.M. PDT until April 20 at 1:00 P.M. PDT, Trainers will be able to find a greater variety of Pokémon from 2 km Eggs. Trainers will also earn more Candy for every Pokémon hatched from an Egg.

For the duration of the Eggstravaganza, players will also level up faster and gain double XP for every action they take. Lucky Eggs will also be 50% off in the in-game shop, meaning players can earn four times the XP they normally would when using a Lucky Egg.
