Pokemon Go celebrates the Lunar New Year with a new event
Pokemon Go is getting in on the Lunar New Year / Chinese New Year celebrations with a new event!
It’s a Happy Year of the Pig and that means there’s wild Spoink everywhere, some of them may even be shiny. Rattata, Ekans, Mankey, Ponyta, Electabuzz, Dratini, Mareep, Miltank, Torchic, Poochyena, Spoink, and Buneary may also appear more in the wild.
The real fun stuff is that there’s double catch XP, and 2x XP when evolving a Pokemon. When you do a trade as well there’s also more of a chance it’ll become a lucky Pokemon.
The event runs until February 14th here in Australia.
