Pokemon Go players can enjoy the new Spring Event starting next week.
During the spring
festivities, Buneary will be wearing a flower crown, while egg and spring-centric Pokemon will appear more often in the wild.
Pokemon Eggs will also hatch with Pichu and Togepi also wearing flower crowns.
Niantic is continuing to provide ways to enjoy the game in an individual setting. Because of this, you'll receive 1/2 Hatch Distance when Eggs are placed into Incubators until further notice, so be sure to turn on Adventure Sync.
The Spring event runs
, and you can expect the features outlined by Niantic below.
- The following Pokemon will be appearing more often in the wild: Exeggcute, Chansey, Mareep, Marill, and Torchic. If you're lucky, you might encounter a Shiny Exeggcute.
