Pokemon GO's Spring Into Spring event kicks off today, April 4, bringing unique spawns to a neighborhood near you. Below, we've broken down the most important pieces of information trainers need to know to get the most out of the next few days.

Pokemon GO 'Spring Into Spring' Event Guide

The Spring event will run from April 4 at 10 a.m. to April 8 at 8 p.m., local time. Unfortunately for trainers abroad, this event is currently only occurring in the northern hemisphere. However, this will likely provide a good bit of insight into what to expect later on in the year.

All manner of Spring-like Pokemon will be spawning at an increased rate, including Flower Crown Pikachu, Plusle and Minun, Exeggcute, Buneary, and Bunnelby with a shiny chance.

Chansey and its evolutionary line will also be featured—with each one wearing flower crowns as well. This will be the first time this species has been given a unique seasonal model. Flower Crown Chansey will be appearing in the wild, Flower Crown Happiny will hatch from 2 k.m. eggs, and evolved Blissey will sport a flower crown of its own.

2 k.m. Eggs are getting an extended pool for the next four days, with additions such as Exeggcute, Flower Crown Eevee and Pichu, Togepi, Azurill, Buneary, Munchlax, Rufflet, and Bunnelby.

Mega Lopunny will also be making its debut in mega raids this week. Flower Crown Chansey, Togetic, and Azumarill are set to join three-star raids and Bunnelby, Rufflet, Timburr, Flower Crown Pikachu and Eevee will be in one-star raids.

Trainers can purchase Mega Lopunny avatar items in the shop. Event-exclusive stickers can be found by spinning gyms and PokeStops. Additionally, exclusive Timed Research will also be available and rewards trainers encounters with Azumarill, Rufflet, "and more." A new collection challenge will be issued with various bonus items upon completion.

The following bonuses will be available for the duration of the event:

  • Hatching distance is halved
  • Twice the amount of candy upon hatching any egg
  • Lucky Eggs last twice as long

Here's hoping this puts a spring in your step, trainers.
