The Easter weekend has arrived. That means chocolate. This means rabbits. It also means lots of hyperactive children; these are best avoided. You might be able to avoid them by participating in the Pokémon Go Easter event. From 1 p.m. today until 1 p.m. on April 20th, players will have the chance to join in with the Pokémon Egg hunt.
Won’t It Be Eggshausting?
Of course not. You’ll be running around looking for real chocolate eggs anyway!
In all seriousness, there will be an increased variety of Pokémon found in two-kilometer Eggs throughout the event. The 2 km Egg is the most common Pokémon Go Egg. As such, they usually contain some less-than-impressive Pokémon, and certainly varieties you’ve captured hundreds (thousands?!) of times by now. The Easter event — running for seven days, instead of just the Easter weekend — should give you a bit more impetus to actually find and crack some Eggs!
The range of Pokémon will include many from the 5 km and 10 km tiers. You can find a full list right here.
And because it is Easter, and because there will be chocolate, Pokémon Go didn’t want to miss out. Eggs hatched over the Easter event will earn players more candy that usual, really embracing the spirit of the holiday. Additionally, all players will earn double experience on all activities. Finally, Lucky Egg items will be sold at half-price throughout the event, so it could be a good time stock up.
In a final flourish of goodwill to Pokémon Go players, the three Generation 2 starters — Cyndaquil, Chikorita and Totodile — will hatch from 5 km Eggs. Previous to this, they didn’t hatch from any Egg at all. Another nice bonus!
Egg-Squisite Easter Hunting
Okay, that is my last egg pun. Not really, I could go on for days. Much like you will be if you’re going to make use of this bumper Pokémon Go Easter event. Remember not to gorge on too much chocolate, because you’ll need do some walking to hatch your Eggs! Happy hunting!
