Pokemon Go Double Candy: 2x Catch Candy Enabled for Special Event

Pokemon Go Double Candy is now live in the augmented reality game from Niantic Labs following a milestone achievement completed for the company's special Earth Day event.

Niantic Labs ran an Earth Day promotion from April 13-28 recruiting players of both Pokemon Go and Ingress to participate in holiday activities with in-game rewards tied in.

The milestone was accomplished and Pokemon Go players are reaping the benefits. Here's everything available now in the game following the Earth Day event.

The requirement for the event called for 7,000 players from either Pokemon GO or Ingress to attend Earth Day cleanup. The threshold was hit and here are the rewards now available:

  • Ground-type Pokemon appear more frequently in the wild
  • Chance to catch a Shiny Diglett
  • Chance to encounter Groudon in Raids
  • 2x Catch Stardust for Pokemon in the event
  • 2x Catch Candy for Pokemon in the event

While the return of Groudon to Raids is welcomed due to how strong he is in the game, and a new Shiny Diglett is a fun collectors item, 2x Catch Candy and Stardust is a bonus all players can rejoice in.
