Starting today, pink fluff balls will be all the rage in Pokemon Go! In celebration of Valentine’s Day, Niantic has announced a special event featuring pink Pokemon.
Adorable, pink Pokemon such as Chansey, Clefable, and Porygon(somebody thinks it’s adorable, right?) will have increased spawn rates. 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. Baby Pokemon such as Igglybuff, Smoochum, and Cleffa will have higher spawn rates, too. Lure modules are feeling the love, too. Instead of lasting for 30 minutes, they will last for 6 hours during the event.
The event will officially kicks off today at 2pm EST and will last until February 15th at 2pm EST. Gotta love ’em all!
Note: You do not have to hug anybody in order to participate in the event, though it is encouraged if someone drops a 6 hour lure.
