Valentines Day Event Pokemon GoPokemon Go

Pokemon Go is back at it again with an event to celebrate the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday. The Valentines Day event features Flabebe and its evolutions alongside a global challenge and other romantic bonuses.

Since 2016, the developers of Pokemon Go have provided a wide variety of events for players to enjoy. Oftentimes, these events are used to launch a new ‘mon, or an existing characters shiny variant, into the game.

As trainers all over the world catch their favorite characters right from their phone, having a consistent flow of new ‘mon to catch allows players to enjoy the game longer.
