Niantic is still going strong with events and new updates. Recently, there have been lots of rumors and predictions circulating in the Pokémon Go community. The Pokémon Go Company has not released any official response to these rumors and this has Players thinking. Presently, it seems players have little to worry about since February is loaded with the two of the most exciting events in the history of Pokémon Go.

The first one is the Pokémon Go Valentine’s Day Event, while the second is the newly introduced Community Day Event, which gives trainers around the globe the opportunity to meet up at their local parks to make new friends, catch a special Shiny Pokémon, get other bonuses such as increased XP or Stardust, and Lure modules which lasts for up to three hours.

2018 Pokémon Go Valentine’s Day event similar to last year’s?

Last year’s Pokémon Go Valentine’s Day event, which began on February 8, 2017, and ended on the night of the 15th, was so exciting. The event brought double candies which were used for catching, hatching, and transferring Pokémon, and the spawn rate for pink Pokémon such as Chansey, Clefable, and Porygon was increased. Also, the lure module, which was known to last for 30 minutes, lasted for six hours, and a buddy Pokémon found candy twice as fast as usual. This year’s event will probably be similar to that of last year’s, with pink Pokémon spawning more often and candies doubled. Although Niantic has said nothing yet, we will remain expectant for an announcement later this week.

Predictions about this year’s Valentine's day event

According to predictions on Reddit, Luvdisc, which is a super rare outside nest, will be made a common spawn and since it is a completely useless monster with no evolution, there is a possibility that it will be released as Shiny Pokémon so that people will want to catch it.

A new Legendary Pokémon will be unlocked. Mr. Mime will spawn for a few days worldwide along with 2x bonuses, and new waves of Gen 3 Pokémon will be released. Chancey, which is the rarest and most hunted Pokémon, had increased spawns during last year’s event, yet it is still extremely hard to get. So, hopefully, it might be one of the Pokémon to focus on catching during the event.

Whismur and Wurmple will possibly be among the Pokémon to focus on catching in this year’s Valentine’s Day event. Although Whismur looks pink, it is actually red. In fact, there is every possibility that some Pokémon which aren’t pink will have an increased spawn.
