Hatch More Eggs in Pokémon GO Hatchathon

Posted by | Mobile, News | No Comments

Many New Year’s Resolutions involve getting more exercise and losing weight. What better motivation to get moving than hatching eggs in Pokémon GO? From now until Jan. 15, Pokémon GO trainers will receive bonuses for using Adventure Sync to track walking distance.

Adventure Sync is a recent addition to Pokémon GO that tracks your distance using your smartphone. Once you activate Adventure Sync in the Settings, Pokémon GO will automatically track your distance without having to keep the game open. Walking distance is useful for generating candy with your Buddy Pokémon, hatching Pokémon eggs, and earning weekly rewards.

During the Hatchathon event, any egg you hatch will result in double the candy and stardust. You’ll also have a greater chance of receiving the bigger 5 km and 10 km eggs from PokéStops and Gyms. Eggs are a good way to collect rarer Pokémon, especially the 10 km eggs. Time to get moving!

The Hatchaton event ends January 15 at 1 pm Pacific/4 pm Eastern. Recently Pokémon has also begun rolling out Trainer battles, which finally feature player vs player combat. Trainer Battles are limited to local multiplayer and online with friends, and can net rewards and bonuses.

Pokémon GO is free to download on iOS and Android mobile devices.
