Niantic has announced today that it has launched a special Easter “Eggstravaganza” event. The event is underway now, and will end on April 20, 2017. During this time, a greater variety of Pokémon will be found in 2 km Eggs. You’ll also earn more Candy for each Egg that you hatch.
Also during the event, trainers can level up faster than usual thanks to double XP. So that means, if you combine the double XP bonus with a Lucky Egg, you’ll earn four times the usual XP. And Niantic is even offering 50% off Lucky Eggs that you can buy from the in-game shop for the duration of the event.
Also reporting on the event, Forbes said that the number of Pokémon that can now be hatched from 2km eggs includes a big selection from the 5 km and 10 km lists, including the likes of Larvitar and Lapras. The three Generation 2 starters Cyndaquil, Chikorita, and Totodil, can also all now be found hatching in 5 km Eggs, when they were previously not available in any Eggs.
