The Pokémon Go Eggstravaganza event begins Tuesday, April 16 at 4 p.m. EDT and ends Tuesday, April 23 at 4 p.m. EDT.


Niantic confirmed in the official announcement that Shiny Buneary will make its debut in Pokémon Go. The Gen 4 Normal-type Pokémon will have its brown and yellow coloring change to brown and pink.


Niantic confirmed the Baby Pokémon that can be found in 7km Eggs will migrate to 2km as well as the new research tasks (more on that below). Pokémon like Pichu, Smoochum and Magby will be easier to find than ever before.

While it's not stated in the official announcement, other Baby Pokémon are likely to migrate over as well but we'll update this section with the full Egg Changes when the event begins.


New research tasks will be available during the Eggstravaganza event. By simply spinning PokeStops, you will get the new task. The new tasks will be "Egg-focused," so expect to hatch a ton of Eggs to complete them.

Eggstravaganza: Hatch an Egg - Buneary

Eggstravaganza: Hatch 3 Eggs - Azumarill

Eggstravaganza: Hatch 5 Eggs - Chansey


The candy received from hatching Pokémon from Eggs will be double during the week-long event. To help hatch Eggs faster, Incubators will be twice as effective. Here's a quick rundown of how far trainers need to walk to hatch Eggs during the event:

2km -> 1km

5km -> 2.5km

7km -> 3.5km

10km -> 5km

Also, Lucky Eggs will last twice as long when you activate them. Instead of 30 minutes, Lucky Eggs will last for one hour and you'll earn double experience for anything you do.
