Pokemon Go’s April Fool’s Day event returns April 1st. The event runs all day and has various “difficult” Pokemon such as Aipom and Croagunk, as well as increased appearance of Team Go Rocket grunt.
Throughout the April Fool’s Day event, Aipom, Croagunk, Purrloin and other evil monsters will appear in nature more often than usual. Ditto will also be much more common during the event, and this time you may find it disguised as a Pokemon it has not replicated before in Pokemon Go.
In addition to the increased Pokemon spawning, Team Go Rocket grunts will appear in balloons and PokeStops more often throughout the event, and they will only have Shadow Aipom in their teams. A new set of Team Go Rocket Timed Research will also be available from April 1
Pokemon Go’s April Fool’s Day event runs from 6 p.m. 12 to 23:59 local time. You can read more information on the official Pokemon Go blog.
It’s not the only Pokemon Go event on the horizon. Niantic is holding an event with a spring theme in the game from 4 to 8 April. Throughout the event, you will be able to capture flower-crowned versions of Pikachu and Chansey in the wild, along with other Pokémon with a spring theme. Shiny Bunnelby and Shiny Chansey will also appear, and there will be exclusive research assignments and other bonuses.
After that, Pokemon Go’s April Community Day will take place on April 11th. The famous Pokémon this month is Snivy, and if you can develop it to its final form, Serperior, during the event or up to two hours afterwards, it will Learn the Community Day-exclusive feature Frenzy Plant.
