Niantic’s Pokemon GO is well-known for having fairly regular events that coincide with some of the year’s biggest celebrations. With that in mind, players are eagerly anticipating a potential Easter event that many online predict to be dropping some time in the coming weeks.
Although no plans have been revealed so far for an Easter event, it would seem that Pokemon GO fans have already begun to try and predict what the special update could bring to the game. First and most obviously, Pokemon eggs are likely to see some changes.
This could mean that players will be able to find more eggs at PokeStops, or maybe just that hatching times will decrease and allow for more baby Pokemon to be born. The eggs could also get a new themed appearance which would help give the impression of a traditional Easter egg hunt.
Pokemon such as Chansey, Blissey, Togepi, and of course, Exeggcute, all feature eggs in some way and could see the creatures put in the forefront of an Easter update. And while it seems unlikely that these will be the next Pokemon to receive a shiny form in-game, their spawn rates might increase significantly for the duration of the Easter holiday.
Other ideas that have surfaced include doubling the time that a Lucky Egg is active for and increasing stardust/XP/candy gain. Whatever Niantic decides to include in its Easter update, it’ll be interesting to see if the regular events continue to bring the dwindling userbase back to Pokemon GO.
In other recent Pokemon GO news, many fans are still complaining about the large amount of spoofers that have taken over certain areas of the world without punishment. The players who make use of GPS spoofing apps instead of playing the game as it should be played mean that other users are at a major disadvantage. Currently, it’s a huge issue that’s putting many fans off the once incredibly-popular mobile sensation.
