Pokémon GO strolls back into holiday-themed in-game events with “The Pokémon GO Eggstravaganza,” which provides a boost to anything Egg-related in the game. Though not explicitly Easter-themed, it’s impossible to deny the connection.
Starting at 4 p.m. Eastern on April 13 and running through until 4 p.m. Eastern on April 20, this week-long event will offer the following bonuses to players:
- Wider pool of Pokémon found in 2 km Eggs
- More Candy for each Egg hatch
- Double the XP from everything
- 50 percent off Lucky Eggs in the shop
While little is known about exactly which Pokémon will be hatchable throughout the course of the event, fans are speculating that more rare Pokémon like Lapras and Snorlax — which typically only hatch from 10 km eggs — might just be on the table. More Candy from hatching the eggs just means that Pokémon will be that much easier to upgrade and/or evolve. Double the experience is universally useful. And Lucky Eggs, which grant double experience for 30 minutes at a time, are at the all-time low price of $0.40, and the official website promises that the experience multipliers will stack: “Combine this Egg-cellent bonus with a Lucky Egg, and you’ll earn four times the XP you normally would.” Eggs have always been a central part of the Pokémon GO experience, and for the next week at least, it’s going to be perhaps the most important thing to do.
Developer Niantic said it best: “Get cracking and see what you find!”
The Pokémon GO Eggstravaganza kicks off at 4 p.m. Eastern today (April 13) and concludes at 4 p.m. Eastern on April 20.
