Only a few hours are left for the “Pokemon GO” Easter event to close, and fans are giving their last desperate efforts to hatch rare two kilometre Eggs and grab double XP. They will also get additional Candy for every Egg hatched. Lucky Eggs are available at great discounts (50 percent off).

New prices for the Lucky Eggs are out. One Lucky Egg (40 coins), eight Lucky Eggs (250 coins) and 25 Lucky Eggs (625 coins). Niantic is reportedly already planning the next big event after this Easter Eggstravaganza ends. A huge event is about to be unveiled in July. New features would be implemented and of course, the Legendary Pokemon are coming. Raids are also expected to be a big thing very soon, and may accompany the release of the Legendary. Now as the clock ticks, it is advisable that “Pokemon GO” players evolve as many Pokemon as possible.

This is the best time to be performing mass evolutions. Players would want to go through all the normal functions of the game at a rapid speed as they will be getting more XP, additional candy, discounted prices and other such bonuses. They are being awarded additional XP every time they are catching a Pokemon. More the Pokemon caught, more are the chances for evolutions. This will also result in additional XP. Those waiting for a mini-Pokemon binge, this is the best time to go all out.

The “Pokemon GO” Easter Eggstravaganza event is mostly focused on Eggs, and all the things that go along with them. Take advantage of the Lucky Egg sale. Eggs are extremely useful items in this game, as one can get only certain Pokemon that way. The 50 percent discount is also massive more so, if one is running short on cash. One should go for the eight Egg bundle, if he/she needs a specific evolution, writes Mic. Meanwhile, Niantic is making a fresh effort to ban GPS spoofers. The company recently tweeted about its efforts to stop spoofing and cheats.

‘Pokemon GO’s” AR functionality has inspired Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and Facebook may soon venture into Augmented Reality. However, Facebook’s entry into AR will be much bigger than that of this critter-hunting game.

However, Niantic is not worried and has in fact shared details about its player base.

“We continue to be inspired by the passion of the 65+ million people from around the world playing Pokemon Go each month. We’re still at the beginning of the journey and there’s a lot more to come. With spring arriving in the northern hemisphere, players can look forward to all new cooperative social gameplay experiences in Pokemon Go that will give Trainers new and exciting reasons to get back into the sunshine,” Pokemon GO Hub reported last week.
