Pokemon Go's annual Valentine’s Day event debuts Munna and Musharna

The annual Valentine's Day event returns next week.

Pokemon Go players can participate in the annual Valentine’s Day event starting on Sunday, February 14.

The event kicks off at 1pm local time and ends on February 18 at 8pm local time.

During this time, Munna and Musharna will be making their debut in the game. Munna will be appearing in the wild, and you can use the Unova Stone to evolve it into Musharna.

Appearing more often in the wild will be both male and female versions of  Nidoran, and Plusle, Minun, Volbeat, Illumise, Luvdisc,  and more are expected.  If you’re lucky, you might encounter a Feebas.

If you evolve Kirlia during the event you will get a  Gardevoir or a Gallade that knows Synchronoise. And the following Pokemon will be hatching from 5km eggs:  Eevee, Cleffa, Igglybuff, Togepi, Luvdisc, Munna, Woobat, and Cottonee.

You can also expect the following Pokemon to be appearing in raids:

  • One-star raids: Ralts, Volbeat, Illumise, Feebas, Munna, and Espurr.
  • Three-star raids: Togetic, Espeon, Umbreon, Gardevoir, Gallade, and Alomomola.
  • Five-star raids: Latias and Latios
  • Mega Raids: Mega Pidgeot, Mega Gyarados, and Mega Ampharos.

If you complete event-exclusive Field Research, you will encounter creatures such as Ralts, Volbeat, Illumise, Spinda with a heart pattern, and Alomomola, as well as earn other rewards.

Complete the Valentine’s Day-themed Collection Challenge during the event by collecting male and female Nidoran, as well as Espeon, Umbreon, Plusle, Minun, Volbeat, Illumise, Luvdisc, Latias, Latios, and Alomomola to receive five Silver Pinap Berries, a Lucky Egg, and an Egg Incubator.

During the event, you can pick up a free one-time bundle in the shop featuring three Remote Raid Passes. Plus, event-exclusive stickers will be available from Gifts.  There will also be new Munna-inspired avatar items available in the shop during and after the event.

Bonuses during the Valentine's Day event include an increased chance to become Lucky Friends with your friends, and an increased chance that Pokemon you trade become Lucky Pokemon. The trading range will be increased to 40 km and you will have an increased chance of receiving Berries from Gifts.
