Spring is in full swing in Pokémon GO thanks to the recent Spring into Spring event. While Pokémon wearing flower crowns are abundant, Niantic is also celebrating the season by spotlighting some egg-themed Pokémon.

For three hours (11 a.m. to 2 p.m. your local time) on Saturday, April 16th, 2022, there will be a Limited Research Day event focused on Exeggcute. During this short time window, you’ll be able to get Limited Research tasks that will result in Exeggcute Encounters. Combine this with Alolan Exeggutor learning Draco Meteor (if evolved during the event), Trainers can really build an eggciting team for battles and their Shiny Dex.

Here’s what will be happening during this event.

 

Limited Research Day: An Egg-citing Spring Surprise

Begins: Saturday, April 16th, 2022 at 11 a.m. your local time.

Ends: Saturday, April 16th, 2022 at 2 p.m. your local time.

 

Exeggcute* will be part of a special Limited Research Day event. While having at least one open slot in your Limit Research task tab, spin Photo Discs at PokéStops to get special Limited Research tasks.

 

Note: Pokémon marked with an * means that “If you’re lucky, you might encounter a Shiny one!”
