Love will be in the air pretty soon, Trainers! Similar to last year’s event, Pokémon GO is going all pink for Valentine’s Day this year. Starting on the holiday itself, players can look for pink Pokémon that’ll be appearing more frequently in the wild, in Raids, and inside Eggs.

Amping up the celebration is the debut of Audino and Alomomola in-game, but their appearances are quite rare so you’ll need some luck on your side to add them to your ‘dex! You’ll also have the opportunity to possibly hatch a Happiny or encounter a Shiny Chansey in the wild.

Other extras for Valentine’s Day include the following:

  • Bonuses
  • Lure Modules will last six hours
  • 2x Catch Candy

The festivities will kick off on Friday, February 14th, at 8:00 a.m. and will run until Monday, February 17th, at 10:00 p.m. local time. That Saturday, February 15th, a special Raid Day will be hosted from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time, featuring Lickitung in 4-star Raids. As an extra incentive to get out there, the Pokémon will know Body Slam and players will receive up to five additional Raid Passes for free during the event by spinning Photo Discs at Gyms.

With Valentine’s Day only a week away, it’s time to get excited! Good luck out there, Trainers!
