Celebrate the Lunar New Year with Pokémon GO’s 2023 Lunar New Year event!

Trainers,
It’s time to celebrate the Lunar New Year in Pokémon GO! Pokémon like Bunnelby and Buneary will appear more frequently in the wild, and Trainers can look forward to other event-themed Pokémon appearing in the wild, in raids, and hatching from Eggs!

It looks like all Trainers’ luck will also improve during the event—you’ll have an increased chance of encountering Shiny Darumaka, an increased chance to receive Lucky Pokémon in trades, and an increased chance to become Lucky Friends!
