Whew! After what feels like an eternity of raiding, we’re finally getting a good old fashioned Pokemon GO event! This one is called the “Pokemon Go Equinox event”, and from what we can tell, it’s going to be a good one.
Kicking off at 1PM PDT on the 22nd of September, the Pokemon GO Equinox event has four main features. First of all, we’re getting double Stardust from every Pokemon that is caught or hatched during the event. Second, we’ll be able to obtain “special” 2km eggs from Poke Stops and Gyms, which will have rare Pokemon inside.
Third, “Super Incubators” will be available for purchase from the shop, and will hatch eggs at a whopping 1.5 times faster than normal. And, fourth, every new Pokemon added to the Pokedex during this event will yield 3 times the normal XP.
According to the official announcement: “From 1:00 P.M. PDT on September 22 to 1:00 P.M. PDT on October 2, 2017, you’ll have the opportunity to earn double Stardust for catching Pokémon and hatching Eggs as you walk around your neighborhood discovering new sights.”
The announcement continues with: “While you’re out exploring, be sure to visit your local PokéStops and Gyms to collect special 2 km Eggs that have the opportunity to hatch Pokémon such as Chansey, Mareep, Larvitar, and more.”
“You’ll also be able to get special boxes from the in-game shop that feature items like Lucky Eggs, Lure Modules, and all-new Super Incubators which hatch Eggs 1.5 times quicker! Registering a new Pokémon to your Pokédex during this limited-time celebration will earn you triple the normal XP.”
So, we’ve got just over 2 days until the Pokemon GO Equinox event begins. In preparation for the event, it would be a good idea to clear out all of your 10km eggs so you can grab as many of the 2km special eggs as possible. You should also refrain from catching/evolving any new Pokemon, as well!
