Another event is dropping out of the blue, this time focusing heavily on friendship bonuses!

Friendship Weekend Duration
Event Start Event End
February 21, 8:00 a.m. local time February 24, 10:00 p.m. local time

During this time, the following bonuses will be available:

  • Faster Friendship Level Gains
  • 2x Trade Candy
  • 1/2 Trade Stardust Cost
  • Players can Send 40 Gifts per Day
  • Players can Hold 20 Gifts at Once

While not the most exciting update for many, it does provide a few opportunities. For example; finally hitting Best Friends with that one friend, making that unowned Legendary and/or Shiny trade, or hoarding 7k eggs in hopes of that big hatch from the ongoing Fossil Pokemon event.

Strangely, this event has only been mentioned in-app, and as of the posting of this news it has not been added to the official Pokemon Go news site. Either way, do you plan to take advantage of this event? Let us know what you think below?
