Pokémon GO’s steady seasonal event tie-ins continue with an Easter Event, which lasts throughout the next week. Naturally, it’s all about the eggs.
The biggest bonus of the Easter Event can be found in the smallest 2 km eggs. Normally these easy to hatch eggs usually contain common Pokémon. During the Easter Event, you’ll find a greater variety. You’ll also be rewarded with more candy for each Pokémon you hatch.
To continue with the egg theme, Lucky Eggs will be available to purchase in the in-game shop for half off. Lucky Eggs double the amount of experience you earn for 30 minutes.
Finally, everything you do during the Easter Event, from catching Pokémon to earning medals, will earn double experience.
It’s a shame that the precious egg incubators are not given the same discount treatment. Having multiple incubators is the best way to hatch eggs. In a true nickel and dime scenario, the eggs may be nicer but the incubators will cost you.
Pokémon GO remains popular even if its incredibly explosive launch has faded in the public consciousness. A steady stream of seasonal events and bonus rewards are a nice incentive to keep playing. The most recent event, the Water Festival, gave us a bunch of extra water Pokémon to find and catch.
I still play regularly, though casually, and I never feel the need to spend money. In fact, this Easter Event may be a great time to finally use some of those Lucky Eggs I’ve been hoarding.
The Pokémon GO Easter Event ends April 20.
