Developer Niantic Labs announced Thursday that its popular augmented-reality game Pokémon GO is getting a new in-game event for Easter, aptly named Eggstravaganza. From 1pm PDT on Thursday, April 13, 2017 to 1pm PDT on Thursday, April 20, 2017 a greater variety of Pokémon can now be found in 2 km eggs. Players will also enjoy a few additional perks.
