Last Chance For Pokemon Go's Valentine's Day Event [UPDATE]

Luvdisc and Chansey will appear a lot more frequently until February 15.


Update: Due to persistent server issues today, Niantic has extended the Pokemon Go Valentine's Day event until February 16, giving players an additional 24 hours to take advantage of the increased Luvdisc and Chansey spawns and earn extra Stardust.

The original story follows below.

Valentine's Day has come and gone, and a lot of video games are still celebrating the holiday by holding special Valentine's Day-themed events. That includes Pokemon Go, which is set to wrap up its own Valentine's event, meaning players only have a limited time left to capture some very rare pink Pokemon and earn extra bonuses.

For a few more hours, Pokemon Go players will encounter increased spawns of the heart-shaped Pokemon Luvdisc, one of the many Gen 3 Pokemon that were recently added to Pokemon Go. Chansey will also appear more frequently for the duration of the event. Players will be rewarded with triple the usual amount of Stardust for each Luvdisc and Chansey that they catch.

Valentine's Day also marked the end of Kyogre's run as a Raid Boss, so players can no longer capture the Legendary Pokemon. However, another Gen 3 Legendary, Rayquaza, is available right now in Pokemon Go; the Dragon-type will appear in Raid Battles until March 16. Rayquaza arrived alongside another batch of Gen 3 monsters, which primarily consisted of Flying- and Dragon-types such as Altaria, Salamence, and Tropius.

Beyond the Valentine's Day event, players also have the next Pokemon Go Community Day event to look forward to this month. That event takes place on February 24. Like the first Community Day in January, players will have a chance to capture a rare Pokemon that knows a move it cannot typically use during the event. Niantic hasn't revealed what that exclusive move is yet, but the Pokemon in question this time is the Dragon-type Dratini.
