Equinox event FAQ

Will the event feature Gen III baby Pokémon?
We don’t know yet, but that 3x XP for registering new Pokémon sounds very fishy. Please, don’t go around saying we said it will feature Gen III. We don’t know, we’re hoping in the same way that  you do.

What is the best way to get Stardust?
The good old lure-a-thon at a tri-stop area. Or incense and hatching like there’s no tomorrow. In any case, you will spend Poké Coins, so make sure to stock up on some gold pieces before the event starts.

What is the most important hatch from the event eggs?
Larvitar.
