Eggstravaganza Field Research
Keep checking back with us, as we will update as soon as reports of the Limited-time Egg-focused Field Research tasks are verified.
Hatch! Hatch! And then Hatch some more! If you are like me, you probably still need at least a few of those shiny Baby Pokémon, and this event, with its 2x Incubator effectiveness, will give you an increased amount of chances to obtain them. Also, hatching eggs (even without a Stardust bonus) is by far the most efficient way to gain Stardust in Pokémon GO. Should you have the extra Lucky Eggs, running them when you are about to hatch a round of Eggs will give you a nice chunk of XP as well.
