Pokemon Go fans are counting down to the big Easter Event, which is expected to start this week.
Niantic is yet to officially announce the Easter event, but having held seasonal events for Halloween and Christmas, an Easter special seems likely.
Niantic typically announces events in the early afternoon, so if the Easter event does happen, it's likely to be revealed within the next 24 hours.
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.
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.
