Spring into Spring field research tasks in Pokémon Go

You may find yourself earning an event-exclusive field research task when you spin a PokéStop during the Spring into Spring 2023 event in Pokémon Go.

We recommend completing the research tasks during the event since the Pokémon encounters you earn may help you complete the Spring into Spring Collection Challenge. You can still save these field research tasks and complete them once the event ends if you so choose.

Here are the Spring into Spring field research tasks:

  • Hatch an egg reward - Cherry Blossom Eevee or Cherry Blossom Pikachu encounter
  • Hatch 2 eggs reward - Flower Crown Togetic encounter
  • Hatch 4 eggs reward - Flower Crown Chansey encounter

Everything else you need to know about the Spring into Spring event in Pokémon Go

There are three egg-themed bonuses running throughout the Spring into Spring event in Pokémon Go until it ends on Monday 10th April at 8pm (local time).

The first bonus is that any egg you place in an Incubator during the event will have its hatch distance halved, which is great for any 12km egg you collect during Spring into Spring. You’ll also receive double hatch candy from every egg.

Lucky Eggs will also last for an hour during the Spring into Spring event, which gives you an excellent opportunity to gather some extra XP!

The Spring into Spring event in 2023 also sees the release of Cutiefly and Ribombee from Gen 7 into Pokémon Go. Since we don’t know the spawn rates for Cutiefly after this event ends, we highly recommend getting Cutiefly and evolving it into Ribombee during this event.

Cutiefly and Ribombee.

This year’s Spring into Spring also sees the release of 12 new costume Pokémon. The new costume in question is a set of two cherry blossoms, which don’t look annoyingly similar to the flower crowns at all, atop a Pokémon’s head.

All of the Pokémon in both the Pikachu and Eevee evolution line have been given this new costume, so, if you evolve a Cherry Blossom Eevee, you will earn one of the Eeveelutions with these Cherry Blossoms. The shiny forms of these new costume Pokémon are also being released as part of the event, which means, if you catch a shiny Cherry Blossom Pikachu, you can evolve it into a shiny Cherry Blossom Raichu.

Bunnelby.

Throughout the Spring into Spring event, the following Pokémon will be appearing more frequently in the wild:

  • Cherry Blossom Pikachu
  • Jigglypuff
  • Flower Crown Chansey
  • Cherry Blossom Eevee
  • Flower Crown Togetic
  • Marill
  • Whismur
  • Flower Crown Buneary
  • Bunnelby
  • Cutiefly

Any 2km egg you collected during the Spring into Spring event will have the following egg pool:

Riolu.

Tier 1

  • Cherry Blossom Eevee
  • Azurill
  • Munchlax
  • Cutiefly

Tier 2

  • Cherry Blossom Pichu
  • Flower Crown Togepi
  • Flower Crown Happiny

Tier 3

  • Riolu

Considering the hatch distance bonus running throughout this Pokémon Go event, these 2km eggs give you an excellent chance to find baby costume Pokémon or, if you haven’t added it to your Pokédex yet, a Rilou.

The following Pokémon will also be appearing in raids during the Spring into Spring event:

Finally, you can now buy a Happiny Hoodie from the in-game Pokémon Go avatar shop.

Hope you enjoy the return of the Spring into Spring event!
