Pokemon Go Easter Eggstravaganza event
UPDATE: Pokemon Go developer Niantic has posted an additional message ahead of the Easter Eggstravaganza event start time.
Niantic wants players to share their stories about the Easter Eggstravaganza event, which kicks off at 9pm UK time later today.
"Get out there, hatch some Eggs, and share your stories with us using #PokemonGO on your favorite social media channels," reads a Niantic post.
ORIGINAL: Pokemon Go Easter Eggstravaganza event has been announced by Niantic, complete with XP bonuses, improved egg hatching and discounts.
The Pokemon Go Easter event has a 9pm UK start time later today (April 13), so there's only a few hours to wait before it all begins.
In terms of an end date, the Pokemon Go Easter Eggstravaganza event is only running for a week, which means it finishes on April 20 at 9pm UK time.
And it looks like the previous rumours were true, because the Easter event includes lots of egg-based bonuses.
According to Niantic, players will "be able to hatch Pokemon not usually obtainable from 2km Eggs".
Players will also receive double the amount of XP for all actions taken, as well as additional Candy for every egg hatched.
Lucky eggs are also available at a discounted price, selling at 50% off for the duration of the event.

With the Pokemon Go Easter event about to kick off, Niantic can go back to working on other heavily rumoured features for the game.
Pokemon Go developer Niantic is known to be working on a big new update that will change the way co-op works.
The news was revealed by Niantic following Pokemon Go's BAFTA win for Best Mobile and Handheld Game.
Explaining how the team was inspired by the game's 65 million players, Niantic posted a statement promising big changes for the future.
“We’re still at the beginning of the journey and there’s a lot more to come," reads the Niantic blog post.
"With spring arriving in the northern hemisphere, players can look forward to all new cooperative social gameplay experiences in Pokemon Go that will give Trainers new and exciting reasons to get back into the sunshine.”
