Pokemon Go Easter Eggstravaganza event: Double XP, better eggs and more

Interestingly, people who showed more social anxiety were not less likely to be Pokemon Go players, despite the game's social nature.

"Lace up your walking shoes and get ready to put a spring in your step-the Pokémon GO Eggstravaganza is almost here", said the Pokémon Go team in a post. From 1:00 P.M. PDT on April 13 to 1:00 P.M. PDT on April 20, 2017, a greater variety of Pokémon can now be found in 2 km Eggs, so get cracking and see what you find! Not only should trainers get ready for near-constant hatching, but they'll also earn a greater number of sweets for each egg hatched. 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. It's unclear exactly how varied 2km eggs will be during the event, but if Niantic loads them up with rare Pokemon, trainers are going to get a lot of exercise over the next week.

However, we'll keep the eggciting puns out of here leave it up to Pokemon GO. We will be highlighting each and every single event, giving players a chance to dive back into the game with a good-enough incentive.

Even in the first few weeks following release of the game - in which players "catch" wild, virtual Pokemon creatures lurking in places like parks and public buildings, and train them to do battle against one another - players were easy to pick out on sidewalks.
