3x XP for catches, throw bonuses, etc.
Woo hoo! I’m farming Swinub from my desk right now. Wish they were easier to catch for that first-throw bonus.
The triple XP for catches is insane — haven’t hatched anything yet, so I don’t know what the multiplier is. With lucky eggs added (which are on sale during the event), people are going to level up at a crazy rate just from catching commons. It does seem like Niantic has been trying to even out the playing field in terms of trainer levels and available Pokemon these last few months. Hopefully, everybody else can finally complete their Gen1 and Gen2 dexes (except unown and unobtainable ones). I’m bummed I don’t have much free time this week — need to catch back up to Ghost!
TSR reports 5 times XP for hatching eggs. Screw work, I need to get walking! They’re also saying that Lapras is all over maps right now, so if you want one, get moving. It’s probably going to be like Dratini in the water event and Larvitar in adventure week — they’ll flood the spawns for the first few hours, and then drop a lot.
Edit: This event should be a money-maker for Niantic in terms of both incubators and lucky eggs
The other night when i was in the parking garage for work i looked down at my phone and saw a Shellder right next to a Lapras on track at the same landwark. I got so excited i dont have a Lapras yet. So when i finally parked i looked at the map and i saw the Shellder but not the Lap so i watied and all the sudden my avatar took off in the other direction ARRGG. I guess i might have to use Houstonpokemap to get my Lap. I really dont like driving around down there.
