'Pokemon Go' Valentine's Day Holiday Event Announced

'Pokemon Go' Valentine's Day Holiday Event Announced

"Without further ado, here are the details, taken from "'Pokémon Go" developer Niantic's blog. Additionally, Candy will flow from every portion of the game, with double the amount found from catching, hatching, transferring, or walking your Buddy. Buddy Pokemon will collect candy twice as fast as well, so this is the ideal opportunity to evolve a rare Pokemon in your collection. Sure, Chansey is a marginally rare Pokemon (at least for most fans), but many fans were hoping for either a second wave of Gen 2 Pokemon or one of several new features hidden inside Pokemon Go's code. In addition, Pokemon like Cleffa, Igglybuff, and Smoochum will have a higher chance of hatching from Eggs. So if you would like a change from the typical Valentine's Day date, head out to the park with your significant other and catch some Pokemon's.

It looks like Niantic and Nintendo are getting a little bit too tight on their giveaways for the once viral augmented reality gaming app, Pokemon Go.

As announced on Niantic's website this morning, the special Valentine's Day event begins at 11:00 a.m.


The Pokemon GO Valentine's Day update goes live today at 11AM PST and ends on February 15. That is because lure modules will last for six hours, twelve times the half an hour they usually last.

Quite frankly, this is a great way to lure people back into the game.
