Spring Into Spring With Pokemon GO

Put a little spring in your step and explore your neighborhood.

The latest Pokemon GO Event had been revealed and with it, we have new costumed Pokémon and Tapu Bulu coming to Five-Star Raids to get excited about. You can get all the details from the Pokémon GO Blog and our article outlining the April Events, but lets look at the biggest pieces of info right now.

Event Details

Time and Date
April 12, at 10:00 a.m. to April 18, at 8:00 p.m. local time.

During this time you can enjoy everything this Event has to offer including added bonuses such as: 2x Hatch Candy, 2x Lucky Egg Duration, 1/2 Hatch Distance, and GO Rocket Grunts will have more Shadow Whismur and Shadow Exeggcute in their parties.

New Costumed Pokémon

Togetic wearing a Flower Crown will be in the wild if you are lucky enough to spot and catch one. You will also be able to evolve Togetic into Togekiss which will retain that Flower Crown. If you have a Togepi with a Flower Crown from past Spring Events, you will be able to Evolve it for the first time ever.

On that same note, if you have a Buneary with a Flower Crown, or you catch one during this Event, you will be able to Evolve it into a Lopunny wearing a Flower Crown. It’s great that Niantic has heard our pleas, and is finally letting us Evolve some of our previous costumed Pokémon.
