Valentine's Day in Pokémon GO: Dates, rewards and more

Valentine's day is around the corner and with this a new celebration will be in Niantic's mobile game.
February is one of the most festive months both in the world and in the Pokémon community, especially this year thanks to the franchise's 25th-anniversary celebrations, as well as the usual Lunar New Year and  Valentine's Day festivities.

To help navigate these events Niantic has been releasing detailed schedules for what players can expect and in their latest, they take a look at how Valentine's Day will look in Pokémon GO.
