At long last, Niantic has finally announced the arrival of the newest Pokemon GO event -- Valentine's Day! Apparently, its arrival is a bit unusual this time. That's because the studio didn't bother to make an announcement beforehand. It came like a thief in the night.
Well, not really -- that's because the aforementioned Pokemon GO event didn't came at night. The Valentines event went live around 11 AM PST. As of now, players are trying to figure out what sort of things this may offer. Or, in particular, what kind of Pokemon are involved.
According to Forbes, the main focus of the brand new Pokemon GO event is all about the pink creatures. This is basically to match the overall theme of the Valentine's Day, so to speak. Although Niantic may have been specific on this area, the question of which kind of Pokemon fall into this category remains unanswered.
So far, the confirmed pink Pokemon GO species are Chansey, Porygon and Clefable. The list also includes the likes of Cleffa, Igglybuff and Smoochum. It's worth noting that these creatures are for hatching only. The remaining ones are namely Exeggcute, Clefairy and Jigglypuff. Lickitung, on the other hand, is a bit different. That's because it has been confirmed to be one of the ultra-rarest species showing alongside Chansey and Porygon.
Of course, the list is expected to go on and on as this new Pokemon GO event takes place. There are probable creatures, too, which are Slowbro, Slowpoke and Wigglytuff. The unlikely ones could be something like Mr. Mime and Mew. The latter, although deemed as a pink one, remains to be unofficial. So, in a sense, it's almost impossible for this Pokemon to arrive.
As of this writing, Niantic has yet to announce an end date for the Pokemon GO Valentine's Day event. It may exist for the remainder of the month or so. Or perhaps, it'll end in the very first week of March. Only the studio, obviously, can answer these.
