Special Springtime Event Makes Pokémon GO Green With Grass-Types For Everyone



Spring is now in full swing, and even the Pokémon in Pokémon GO are taking advantage of the warm and sunny weather. Niantic has announced that, from the afternoon of May 5th until May 8th, Grass-type Pokémon will become much more common in the app. This is obviously a very short event, so players have only a small window of time to get out there and capture an abundance of Grass Pokémon.


Here’s an excerpt from the announcement shared by Niantic with further information on the “worldwide bloom” event.


“Professor Willow’s research into Pokémon habitats around the world has uncovered some interesting findings. His initial reports indicate that we’ll see an influx of Grass-type Pokémon sometime this weekend. These Pokémon will appear in the wild more frequently starting the afternoon of May 5, but only for a short period of time. We anticipate that Pokémon will return to their normal habitats on May 8, 2017 PDT.”


Pokémon GO is available for iOS and Android devices.
