Pokemon Go Valentines Day Event is goes from Friday the 8th at 11 am to Feb 15th.
The Valentines day event will feature double candy for all candy generating actions so transferring, catching, buddy pokemon, and hatching pokemon all result in double the normal amount of candy.
Also Pink Pokemon including Chansey, Clefable will be more likely to catch and Igglypuff, Cleffa and Smoochum will be more likely to hatch from eggs.
Oh Yes and Lure Modules will last for 6 HOURS!!!!!!!!!!! I expect that this will make Pokestops all over covered in Lures like never before!
Message from Niantic on the event
TOYLAB TIP: Use this event to get Blissey!
Alright so Blissey is not out yet but is a Pokemon expected to come out during Generation 2. I believe Niantic has Gen 2 ready to go but is waiting for Spring to roll it out world wide. I'm hopeful that Gen 2 launches with some new features see my post on NPCs, Dungeons and Quests! Even though Gen 2 is not out there are some pokemon you can catch now that will help you when Gen 2 does launch and top amongst those pokemons is Chansey. Chansey has become known as one of the toughest gym defenders due to his massive HP and in Gen 2 Chansey picks up an evolved form called Blissey that will be even more POWERFUL. Muahahhahahahaha.
As Chansey is one of the featured Pokemon in this event this is a great time to try to catch as many of him as you can!
