Please leave your egg puns at the door

An event beginning in Pokémon Go today gets festive with a big focus on Pokémon Eggs. From 1 p.m. PT today until 1 p.m. on April 20, players are encouraged to get out on the Pokémon Egg hunt.

An increased variety of Pokémon will be found in two-kilometer Eggs during the event. Those are the most common Eggs to find and, as such, typically hold some less than impressive Pokémon. Not so for the next seven days, so trainers should get hunting.

Hatching eggs will also earn players more candy than usual, confirming that Pokémon Go understands kids' favorite part of Easter.

Everyone will earn twice as much experience for the event's duration, no matter what they do. Last of all, Lucky Egg items will be sold for half off in the game's shop to maximize the experience buffs.

This is the first new promo in Pokémon Go since last month's Water Festival, which brought many players back into the game in the hopes that they'd nab the new and elusive shiny Magikarp.
