Pokémon GO’s seasonal Easter event has returned, the Pokémon GO Eggstravaganza. The event is live now this week and Easter weekend, ending April 23 at 1 pm Pacific/4 pm Eastern.
The Eggstravaganza is all about eggs, naturally. During the event you’ll be able to find rare Pokémon Pichu, Smoochum, and Magby in the smallest 2 km eggs. More varied Pokémon will hatch from all kinds of eggs. And the bunny Pokémon Buneary will make more frequent appearances, including in ultra rare shiny forms.
Throughout the event incubators will hatch eggs twice as quickly and net double the normal candy rewards for hatching. The EXP-granting Lucky Eggs will also last twice as long.
Finally any new Field Research gained during the event will be geared toward egg hatching.
Remember that trainers can turn on the optional Adventure Sync to track their steps without having the game open. This makes hatching eggs much easier just by walking around with your phone.
The Eggstravaganza ends April 23. Also going on this week is the Pokémon GO Snapshot Challenge, using the new Snapshot feature. To participate, simply post your entries to Twitter or Instagram using #GOsnapshot.
The SnapShot Challenge will run throughout the next several weeks and include three separate challenges. The first challenge is going on now, and tasks you with taking a buddy picture with your Pokémon using the AR camera.
Pokémon GO is available on iOS and Android.
