Pokémon Go’s Valentine’s Day event runs from Feb. 8-14 and focuses on couple-oriented and pink Pokémon.
Throughout the event, the amount of Stardust you receive from gifts is doubled, and Lure Modules last for two hours instead of 30 minutes. There are also a few other perks depending on which branch of Timed Research you pick.
During this event, you can also transform your Furfrou to a Heart Trim, if you so desire. As of this event, Shiny Furfrou can also be transformed into a Heart Trim form for the first time.
Notably, we finally have the shiny Frillish family added to the game, which you can find if you’re lucky.
Tapu Lele is also available shiny for the first time, as it makes its way back to tier-five raids.
We’ve listed out all of the spawns, Timed Research, Field Research, and more below.
Pokémon Go Valentine’s Day 2023 Timed Research
Lovely Wishes step 1 of 2
- Catch 5 Pokémon (15 Poké Balls)
- Spin 3 PokéStops or gyms (10 Great Balls)
- Power up Pokémon 5 times (2 Silver Pinap Berries)
Rewards: 500 Stardust, 500 XP, 1 Lucky Egg
After completing this step, the Timed Research will branch off into three choices. The research for step two is almost the same across all three, with only the fourth task having a different objective (which we’ve listed below). Notably, the path that involves Daily Adventure Incense rewards 25 Ultra Balls as a reward, but the other branches do not get this reward or a replacement for this reward.
The different branches will also have some bonuses, depending on what you pick:
- Catching Pokémon: Double XP for catching Pokémon during the Valentine’s Day event
- Using Daily Adventure Incense: Double Daily Adventure Incense length (30 minutes instead of 15 minutes) during the Valentine’s Day event
- Pokémon Candy: Double candy from catching Pokémon during the Valentine’s Day event
