Pokemon Go Christmas event has ended and so the New Years event has started. With the Pokemon Go New Year’s event, trainers are expected to see and encounter more Pokemon spawns for the original starter.
Pokemon GO New Year’s Event
Niantic announced the current holiday event will be divided into two parts, the Christmas event and the New Year’s event. The newly ended Pokemon Go Christmas event offers the increased chance of hatching gen 2 baby Pokemon. While on the New Year’s event, Niantic confirmed the increased spawn rate of the original starter Pokemon like Charmander, Squirtle and Bulbasaur. There is also an increase of spawns for the evolution of the starters. This includes Charmeleon and Charizard, Wartortle and Blastoise and Ivysaur, and Venusaur.
Aside from the increased spawn rates, the Pokemon Go New Year’s event also offers the increase of time span for selected items like Lure Modules which will last for 1 hour instead of 30 minutes.
Quoted from the original post:
In addition, from the afternoon of December 30, 2016, through the afternoon of January 8, 2017 (PST), the first partner Pokémon and their Evolutions, originally discovered in the Kanto region, are more likely to be encountered. This means a greater chance to catch Bulbasaur, Ivysaur, and Venusaur, as well as Charmander, Charmeleon, and Charizard, plus Squirtle, Wartortle, and Blastoise! As a way to increase your chance to encounter one of these Pokémon, Lure Modules will also last for 60 minutes instead of 30 minutes.
