Pokemon Go’s first event of 2017 kicks off today to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
Catching, hatching, and transferring Pokemon will net you twice as much candy as usual, while your buddy Pokemon will find candy in half the usual time.
All of this begins today, February 8, at 11 AM PST.
Meanwhile, while hatching eggs, you’ll be more likely to obtain a Cleffa, Smoochum, or Igglybuff.
The event runs until next Wednesday, February 15, at the same time.

Pokemon UPDATE – Valentine’s event going LIVE today, but Gen 2 Pokemon don’t make the cut
UPDATE: Pokemon Go Valentine’s event has just been announced by Niantic, but there’s no sign of Gen 2 Pokemon.
The Pokemon Go Valentine’s event goes live at 7pm UK time later today (February).
Pink Pokemon like Chansey and Clefable will appear more often, while Lure Modules will last for a whopping six hours.
“And to help you paint your town pink this Valentine’s Day, Lure Modules will last for six hours for the entire duration of the event.”
For the duration of the event, fans will receive double the amount of Candy every time players hatch, catch and transfer Pokemon.

Pokemon Go is spreading the love for Valentine’s Day, double candy and higher spawn rates for pink Pokemon
Be sure to make full use of this new feature for Valentine’s Day though, as the double candy and increased chance of catching pink Pokemon will end at 7pm on 15 February.
Other second generation pink Pokemon such as Cleffa, Igglybuff and Smoochum will have a higher chance of hatching from eggs you collect.
The Pokemon Company and Niantic are feeling very generous and to celebrate Valentine’s Day, are spreading the love in the form of more candy and a greater chance of catching certain Pokemon when playing Pokemon Go.
The love doesn’t end there though, as pink Pokemon including Chansey, Clefable, Porygon and others will have higher spawn rates, meaning there’s a greater chance of you catching one to addto your collection, or collect more candy to evolve them.
Starting from 7.00pm tonight, 8 February, you will be able to collect double the amount of candy when catching, hatching and transferring Pokemon, while your Buddy Pokemon will go out its way to find double the amount of candy for you, their trainer.
