Pokemon Go Going XP Crazy For Friendship Day Event

 Pokemon Go Going XP Crazy For Friendship Day Event

April 24th is the day that Niantic and Pokemon Go have decided to open up its Friendship day event. The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at your local time. While the friendship day event might seem like a short event lasting only 3 hours, it was full of gifts.

What Are The Pokemon Go Event Bonuses?

As the image above shows and is stated on the Pokemon Go live website. The event will not just be giving the players an XP bonus but all sorts of other bonuses as well. As the player has the objective to capture grass-type Pokemons after which you will have completed the event. With the completion of the event the player will receive 175,000XP, this is a huge chunk of XP for any player. Of course, this is not the only bonus, besides this, the event will also be releasing a list of shiny grass-type Pokemons as well.

The list of grass-type of Pokémon you will have to capture to complete the event are:

  • Bulbasaur
  • Tangela
  • Chikorita
  • Sunkern
  • Treecko
  • Cacnea
  • Turtwig
  • Snivy
  • Cottonee
  • Foongus
  • Chespin

The trade distance has also been increased to 40km as well as an increased lucky Pokémon chance when trading. Incense and Lures will also be active for the whole event. While all of the bonuses will end at 2 p.m. the chance for a lucky Pokémon while trading can still be attained until 5 p.m. Along with this various shiny Pokemon will be available which is something most players will be looking forward to. Shiny Pokemon are already very rare in Pokemon Go and with this event players will get a chance to capture grass-type shiny Pokemon. While the event is only limited to 3 hours it is one that will be an interesting one for Players and a memorable one for the ones who are able to complete this event in its entirety.
