The latest information released this week appears to point to a new Pokemon Go Easter Event being rolled out by Niantic in the coming weeks.
While Niantic have failed to confirm a new announcement is in the works, the development team are known to keep most Pokemon Go update details secret until an event actually goes live.
With the recent success of the Water Festival, it seems likely that Niantic will look to release a new event around the time Easter kicks off.
With bank holidays and other celebrations going on, it makes sense to balance a release around this time to take full advantage.
According to new reports, the development team are looking to launch some egg-themed bonuses during the event, as well as perhaps launching one of the game’s newest mechanics.
Dataminers have found evidence of new Redeemable Codes, which can reward new items, Avatar accessories, Candy, Stardust and PokeCoins.
Pokemon Go news this week includes more on the major update and Easter Event set to land
These can come in various different forms, and the Pokemon Go Easter Event could be the first to include some kind of free promotion so that players can earn extra Pokeballs.
Dataminers have discovered that Redeemable Codes are now ready to be deployed and will actually be redeemed via the in-game shop.
While a new event will help reinvigorate the game, it appears much bigger Pokemon Go news is on the horizon.
Gyms are set for a major revamp and part of this could include maintaining the Pokemon that are currently occupying them.
In a further expansion to the Teams system, players would need to feed their Pokemon that are away protecting a Gym, while players would get new notification on how their Pocket Monster was doing.

Players have also found references to “Raids” a new game mechanic that looks set to launch new global goals for teams to unlock additional rewards.
It’s unclear if this will included Legendary Pokemon and at the moment, timed-raids and their full game mechanics are still unknown.
Another part of this update is apparently going to see Gyms share links over distances with other held Gyms, which could feed into the next big feature.
Niantic teased the changes in a recent blog post, writing: “We’re still at the beginning of the journey and there’s a lot more to come.
“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.”
