Niantic is well-known for launching special Pokemon GO Easter events. However, last year’s event, called Easter Eggstravaganza, left fans pretty disappointed. As a result, they didn’t get their hopes up for this year’s Pokemon GO Easter special. However, according to the current stats, Niantic brought a true surprise for them.
Last year’s Pokemon GO Easter special was a disappointment
Starting from March 22nd and lasting until April 2nd, Niantic is offering the Pokemon GO Easter special for this year. This is a tradition for the game, as such events take place every year around Easter. However, since last year’s experience, fans decided to no longer raise their expectations.
2017’s Pokemon GO Easter special lasted a little less than this year’s event, but it came with many promises. Players were supposed to find all sorts of extra items they don’t usually see in the game. This included rare and legendary Pokemon, Easter eggs, and many other surprises.
Unfortunately, Niantic failed to fulfill these promises. There weren’t too many goodies in the game, and the Pokemon they could catch were not rare. They could have found them anytime, so the Pokemon GO Easter special wasn’t actually much different from a regular game.
This year, Niantic listened to the fan recommendations
Fans actually expected some more surprises that Niantic hadn’t even hinted to, so of course they weren’t part of the game. As a result, their levels of disappointment were extremely high and, for this year’s event, they learned to lower their expectations. However, some of them decided to give some recommendations, so they got a surprise this year.
For the 2018 Pokemon GO Easter special, Niantic promised another set of rare items. Also, they decided to take a look at some of the recommendations they have received. As a result, the event was a success, as fans reported finding special Pokemons and items hidden in all types of Easter eggs. Moreover, Niantic promised double XP, and a lot of candy.
So far, this year’s Pokemon Go Easter special looks promising. However, some players stayed reluctant. They are afraid the event will turn into another disappointment until the end, but we will find out about this when it’s done.
