Pokemon GO has announced a spring themed event which will feature flower crown Buneary.
Baby Pokemon Pichu and Togepi will also wear flower crowns when hatched. Check out the promoted Pokemon bonuses along with new attire for Trainer avatars in the announcement below.
Spring has sprung for those of you in the northern hemisphere, and what better way to celebrate than with a springtime event! Buneary joins the celebration by wearing a flower crown, while egg- and spring-themed Pokémon are appearing more often in the wild! Pokémon Eggs just got eggs-tra special too, as Pichu and Togepi with flower crowns will be hatching from them.
We’re continuing to prioritize Pokémon GO experiences that can be enjoyed in individual settings. You’ll receive 1/2 Hatch Distance when Eggs are placed into Incubators until further notice, so be sure to turn on Adventure Sync and make every step count.
