Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and so is the 2022 Pokémon GO Valentine’s Event. Although the Heritage Season is coming to an end, new exciting events will come to full bloom in February. The Pokémon Valentine’s event for the augmented-reality game will kick-off with the introduction of a fresh Fairy-type Pokémon, Flabébé, and its evolved forms, Floette and Florges. The lure module duration and catch candy will also be doubled and a new form for Furfrou will be available during the event.
Flabébé’s Debuts on Pokémon GO
Fans are waiting in anticipation of how Flabébé would make an entrance in Pokémon GO. What we know so far is Flabébé, Floette, and Florges come in five different colors: red, yellow, orange, blue, and white. Furthermore, in an update released by Niantic, it says “Flabébé can evolve into Floette with 25 Flabébé Candy. Floette can evolve into Florges with 100 Flabébé Candy after you earn 20 hearts with it as your buddy.”
The Pokémon Valentine’s Event is expected to run from February 9 to February 15. The event is expected to draw trainers around the world where they have to collaborate “by sending Gifts to your friends. Once Trainers send enough Gifts, they’ll unlock a bonus for all Trainers for the remainder of the event!” according to Niantic.
However, the event will be unique on its own considering there are elements in the gameplay that will be different per region. For example, Yellow Flower Flabébé will only make an appearance in the Americas, Blue Flower Flabébé is only making an appearance in Asia-Pacific, while Red Flower Flabébé will only appear in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Additionally, the rare White and Orange Flower Flabébés will be available to any player regardless of the region should they be able to find these Pokémons.

The Pokémon Valentine’s Event will also usher in other close encounters with Pokémons like Shiny forms of Chansey, Plusle, Minun, Volbeat, Ilumise, Luvdisc, Woobat, Miltank, Audino, and Alomomola.
Moreover, Niantic also details other challenges players can engage in. This includes two Valentine’s Day-themed Collection Challenges. On the same update, Niantic says players will be able to unlock a bonus for all Trainers once, collectively, they have sent enough gifts. This is achievable through the following guidelines:
