Previous Story: Trainers, rumors started to spread that Niantic is preparing to launch new, limited time Valentine’s Day event this month – from February 13 until February 21 featuring new bonuses and new shiny Pokemon.
Please have in mind that this is just a tease and a hint, 0% confirmed and 0% a leak!
The rumors are spreading as the popular Twitter account Stardust PokemonGo posted a “leak” for this year Valentine’s Day event. Now, this channel is known for “leaks” and has been 100% right thus far. They leaked the December Community Day event, Shiny Zigzagoon, Shiny Groudon, Water Festival event, Eggstravaganza event, Adventure Week event and more.
Here is what he posted this time.
Valentine’s Day event
- Start Date: 13th February
- End Date: 21st February
- Lures lasting 6 hours
- Double Candy
- Clefairy, Hoppip and Luvdisc will appear more often
This account has proven to be right before, but until official announcement, please take this with a huge grain of salt.
We expect to see a new Valentine’s Day event this month, new shiny Pokemon, the release of Mime Jr. and Happiney as part of the event and new cool bonuses.
“Roses are red, violets are blue, catch a Mime Jr., Hoppip or Luvdisc and earn x2 Candy, too.“
