Pokemon GO Seasonal Events 2017: What To Expect On Valentines Day, Easter, And More!

By on

Every time a new Pokemon GO seasonal event gets released, it mostly results to positive feedback. It also leaves a lasting impression to the players who would eventually want more of it. The team from Niantic looks like they are getting the hang of it. Hence, fans could expect more of these themed holiday events this 2017.

Aside for our previously mentioned summer theme for the Pokemon GO seasonal event, we can still speculate on the other famous holidays that can tie up with the game. Let’s try to theorize each possible event one at a time.

Valentine’s Day

Since Valentine’s day is the nearest holiday, there are speculations about what the game would showcase next. It can be as common as doubled regular items in your PokeStops or V-day-themed Pokemon spawning.

For the items, the likes of Razz berries can be doubled in amount whenever you collect items from Pokestops. Similar to what they did with the Christmas event, increasing the length of the lures can also be a fine addition to this event. 

As for the Pokemon that would have an increased spawn rate, Smoochum and Jynx are likely candidates. They could also go with pink-colored Pokemon such as Jigglypuff, Clefairy, Wigglytuff, Chansey, Slowpoke, Slowbro, Nidoran and many more.

Saint Patrick’s Day

We can assume that this event will deal with gold. Possibly we can look forward to some gold sales. Maybe even double the amount of gold when you are able to protect your gym for a long time.

Pikachu Leprechaun is also a good idea for this event. Add it along with green themed Pokemon such as Bulbasaur, Ivysaur, Venusaur, Metapod, Caterpie, and other grass type Pokemon.


There are so much we can think of for an Easter event. The most obvious ones are in relation to Pokemon eggs and egg hatching. They can go with the idea of dropping more eggs every time you visit each PokeStop. Also, they can increase the chance of giving away incubators as well.

Another interesting theory is that the distance needed to hatch an egg will be halved. During the event, players can hatch 2km, 5km and 10km eggs with just 1km, 2.5km and 5km distances.

April Fool’s Day

A great April Fool’s day idea would be that all the Pokemon spawned all over the area will all be Dittos. It’s up to the players to pick who they will choose. Hopefully, they get to pick the best one.
