Community days, bonus events, special raid battles and the new PvP mode are all features that have kept Pokemon Go players busy over the last month. Now, there are bonus rewards for Pokemon Go Adventure Sync!

Pokemon Go Hatchathon

The event has been dubbed the Adventure Sync Hatchathon! Various bonuses will be awarded every time you hatch an egg.

Furthermore, the chances of receiving a 5km or 10km egg from gyms and Pokestops are increased during the event.

Adventure Sync Bonuses

Specifically, the bonuses for the Hatchathon event are as follows:

  • Increased odds of receiving both 5km and 10km eggs from gyms and Pokestops
  • 2x Hatch Stardust
  • 2x Hatch Candy

The percentage increase of receiving the more coveted eggs isn’t stated.

However, you can increase your bonuses by playing with Adventure Sync activated! Those steps all add up!


Hatchathon Date & Time

The Pokemon Go Adventure Sync Hatchathon event has already started! It started on January 2, 1pm PST and will end January 15, 1pm PST. That’s 9pm GMT, 4pm ET and 6am JST.
