Quick overview of increased event spawns:
Buneary wearing flower crowns and Pikachu wearing flower hats will also be appearing in the wild! If you’re lucky, you might encounter Shiny ones, too!
All Eggs received from Gifts during the event will be 2 km Eggs. The following Pokémon will be hatching more often from 2 km Eggs:
- Pichu wearing a flower crown,
- Togepi wearing a flower crown,
- and Riolu.
Keep in mind that these Eggs will need only 1 KM to hatch, as Egg hatch distance has been reduced by half until the COVID-19 health situation improves. You will also receive double Candy for hatches.
There will be event-exclusive Field Research tasks that reward encounters with:
- Alolan Exeggutor,
- and—if you’re extremely lucky—Audino!
