Niantic has revealed full details for Pokémon GO‘s Valentine’s Day event for 2021. Read on below to learn more:

Munna and Musharna Debut in Pokémon GO’s annual Valentine’s Day event from February 14–18, 2021

Complete a themed Collection Challenge, add new Pokémon to your Pokédex, and take on event-exclusive Field Research.

Celebrate your love of Pokémon—and add two new entries to your Pokédex—with Pokémon GO’s Valentine’s Day event. From Sunday, February 14, 2021, at 1:00 p.m. to Thursday, February 18, 2021, at 8:00 p.m. local time, Munna will be making its Pokémon GO debut! During the event, Munna will appear in the wild, show up in one-star Raids, and hatch from 5km Eggs. Looking to spread the love by adding Musharna to your Pokédex? Use a Unova Stone on Munna to evolve the Dream Eater Pokémon into the Drowsing Pokémon.

Complete the Valentine’s-themed Collection Challenge by catching Nidoran♀, Nidoran♂, Espeon, Umbreon, Plusle, Minun, Volbeat, Illumise, Luvdisc, Latias, Latios, and Alomomola. Catch at least one of each to receive five Silver Pinap Berries, a Lucky Egg, and an Egg Incubator.

Taking on event-exclusive Field Research tasks will allow you to earn encounters with Pokémon like Ralts, Volbeat, Illumise, Spinda with a heart pattern, and Alomomola. Be on the lookout for certain Pokémon appearing more frequently in the wild, including Nidoran♀, Nidoran♂, Plusle, Minun, Volbeat, Illumise, Luvdisc, and more.

Trainers can also visit the in-game shop for a free bundle with three Remote Raid Passes.

Over the course of the Valentine’s Day event, you can put those free Remote Raid Passes to good use by challenging the following Pokémon to Raid Battles:

One-star raids: Ralts, Volbeat, Illumise, Feebas, Munna, and Espurr

Three-star raids: Togetic, Espeon, Umbreon, Gardevoir, Gallade, and Alomomola

Five-star raids: Latias and Latios

Mega Raids: Mega Pidgeot, Mega Gyarados, and Mega Ampharos

There’s even more to look forward to during the Valentine’s Day event! For instance, Trainers can evolve Kirlia into a Gardevoir or Gallade that knows Synchronoise. Also keep an eye out for event-themed stickers, available in Gifts from your fellow Trainers. To share the love even more, the in-game shop will be carrying new Munna-themed avatar items. And throughout the event, the odds of making a Lucky Trade and becoming Lucky Friends will increase, Pokémon trade distance will be increased to 40km, and Trainers are more likely to receive Berries from Gifts.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
