Pokemon Go - April Events

Pokemon Go has announced four events for April:

  • Spring Week: A springtime celebration will run from April 4 to April 8 and will feature Chansey, Blissey, and Happiny all wearing flower crowns, as well as other spring and Egg-themed surprises.
  • Rivals Week: This event will run from April 13 to April 18 and will feature Pokemon that are "rivals" (such as Zangoose and Seviper) and will introduce multiple new Pokemon. We're guessing that these new Pokemon could include the fossil Pokemon Tyrunt and Amaura
  • Sustainability Week: The Sustainability Week is based around raising environmental sustainability and will run from April 20 to April 25. This event will feature pollution-themed Pokemon like Grimer and Trubbish that players will need to capture.
  • Friendship Day: Saturday, April 24th will feature a brand-new event that celebrates friendship, presumably with friendship between players.

Community Day - Snivy

This month's Community Day will feature Snivy. When a Servine is evolved into Serperior during the event, it will learn the Grass-type move Frenzy Plant, a hallmark of past Community Days. While not announced, this will also very likely serve as the introduction of Shiny Snivy to the game.
