Pokémon GO is bringing back its Valentine's Day event.

On the Pokémon GO website, it was announced that the game's annual Valentine's Day event is making a comeback. The event will start on February 14th, and will last through February 18th. During this time, Munna and Musharna will be making their debut in Pokémon GO. Munna will be appearing in the wild, but players will be able to evolve it into a Musharna by using a Unova Stone. The Nidorans, Plusle, Minun, Volbeat, Illumise, Luvdisc, and more will appear in the wild more often throughout the event. There will also be a chance to run into a Feebas. Evolving a Kirlia during this time will reward players with a Gardevoir or Gallade that will know Synchronoise. Players will be able to hatch Eevee, Cleffa, Igglybuff, Togepi, Luvdisc, Munna, Woobat, and Cottonee from 5 km Eggs. 

It was also revealed what Pokémon players can expect to be in raids during the Valentine's Day event. One-Star raids will feature Ralts, Volbeat, Illumise, Feebas, Munna, and Espurr. Three-Star raids will contain Togetic, Espeon, Umbreon, Gardevoir, Gallade, and Alomomola. Five-Star raids will feature Latias and Latios. Finally, Mega Raids will let players take on Mega Pidgeot, Mega Gyrados, and Ampharos. 

During the Valentine's Day event, there will be event-exclusive Field Research that will result in an encounter with Ralts, Volbeat, Illumise, Spinda with the heart pattern, Alomomola, as well as other rewards when completed. There will be a Collection Challenge event where players can earn five Silver Pinap Berries, a Lucky Egg, and an Egg Incubator by catching the event's featured Pokémon. Gamers pick up a free one-time bundle in the shop featuring three Remote Raid Passes. There will also be event-exclusive stickers, and Munna-inspired avatar items. 

There will be other bonuses that players will have during the Valentine's Day event. There is an increased chance to become Lucky Friends with their friends, as well as an increased chance that the Pokémon that are traded become lucky Pokémon. Players will be able to take advantage of an increased trade range, as well as an increased chance of receiving Berries from Gifts. 

Pokémon GO is available now for mobile devices.
