Pokemon Go Event
This year's Pokemon Go Valentines Day event is cute but does not offer massive rewards that players have become accustomed to during these events.
This event primarily features the heartshaped generation 3 Pokemon Luvdisc. Anytime you catch one you earn 3x the stardust you would normally. This means this Valentines day event is all about catching Luvdiscs and rolling in the Stardust.
Now while that may seem underwhelming it may be better than it seems at first blush. It takes a lot of Stardust to boost up the elite pokemon in the game to partake in Legendary raids. This event is a great way to focus on getting heap loads of the stardust and doing just that.
I will also say its pretty fun to look out on your map and at a bunch of floating hearts.
The Event will end on Feb 15th so go out there and catch some hearts!
No Quest System?
The code in the game has been updated with something that looks like a quest system. Some hoped that the quest system would debut for this event, however it appears the game is saving it. It would not surprise me if they hold toward the end of spring to launch it before summer and the games effective peak season.
Last Years Valentine Event
Last years Valentines Event was also based off Chansey but was a little different.
Pokemon Go Valentines Day Event is goes from Friday the 8th at 11 am to Feb 15th 2017
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!
Chansey is going to be the hot Pokemon to catch during this event. It should be exciting because Blissey the evolved form of Chansey promises to be extremely powerful. 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!
