Developer Niantic has dropped details on the Spring into Spring 2023 'Pokémon GO' event. Here's everything you need to know about it.
Niantic has revealed the Spring into Spring event for Pokémon GO, returning the flowery and Egg-cracking festivities in the mobile AR game. Ribombee, the Gen. VII dual-type Bug and Fairy Pokémon, also debuts with the spring event.
Quite a lot of happening for the occasion, so here's everything you need to know about Spring into Spring 2023.
Spring into Spring 2023 'Pokémon GO' event details explained:
Starting on April 4 at 10 a.m. local time, trainers in Pokémon GO can begin enjoying the Spring into Spring event until April 10 at 8 p.m.
As discussed, Ribombee enters the game, but also its early form Cutiefly. By feeding it 50 Cutiefly Candy, the critter will evolve into Ribombee.
You could also encounter Pichu, Jolteon, Glaceon, and other Pokémon adorned with cherry blossoms while the event is live, as noted on the events page. If you're lucky, you may even run into a Shiny one.
As with previous events, the Spring into Spring bonuses will help trainers gain specific resources much faster.
Trainers can take advantage of 2x Hatch Candy, activated Lucky Eggs lasting for one hour, and 1/2 Egg Hatch Distance after being placed in an Incubator during the event.
Alongside increased encounters with Pokémon like Pikachu and Chansey, the event offers a Mega Lopunny and Lugia raid with Shiny variants. Niantic is also throwing in a new avatar Happiny Hoodie (above) item that will be available during and after the Spring into Spring event.
