Pokemon GO receives its inevitable Easter event and it's all about eggs

After having a water-themed event for Water Day, it would be quite the surprise if Niantic didn't plan an Easter event, too. Therefore, we're not surprised to see that the company just announced such an in-game event.

Starting at 1:00 PM PST today, April 13, and ending the same time on April 20, the Easter event is all about those eggs. Players should expect an increased variety of Pokemon hatching from 2 km eggs. Unfortunately, Niantic didn't share what Pokemon were added to the list of possible low-tier hatchlings. Additionally, every hatched egg will award you more candy than before.

The so called “Eggstravaganza” event also comes with double XP rate, which also stacks with the effect from Lucky Eggs, so you can make use of a quadrupled experience gain if you use said item. In order to make you actually consider buying Lucky Eggs, Niantic also discounted them by 50% in the shop.

Unfortunately, there's no word on a special hat for random Pikachus this time, which is our favourite part of Niantic's events.

I wish they had discounted egg incubators, those things are rather expensive.

The Christmas event with a 1 use incubator from your 1st pokestop of the day would've been amazing

if they are gonna have an egg event, severely discounted incubators or even those free single use incubators should have come with it.

If I were in charge of that decision, knowing people would be buying more incubators during the event to hatch more eggs, I would not have discounted them either.

That's why you aren't in charge. Without cheap incubators, no one will bother with the egg portion of this event. Most everyone is sitting on 9 eggs now. The only way to get new eggs is to first hatch those existing eggs. Lowering the cost of incubators will entice people into doing just that.

Well thats not the ONLY reason I'm not in charge. Might have something to do with the fact that I don't work there at all. People already buy plenty of incubators at the prices that are already there. They aren't that expensive anyways.

half price incubators would have spurred a lot of people to buy them who otherwise would not have. that said, I've gotten a lot of "5k" pokemon out of 2k eggs so far. Nothing exotic, yet. Though still getting a healthy mix of 10k and 5k egg drops

My 1st 2K hatch was an Aerodactyl, I would've been more excited had I not hatched my 1st Aerodactyl .5KM right before from a 10K Since I've hatched 2 Magbys
