Pokemon Go Valentine Day event, start time, how to catch Flabebe and more

The Pokemon Go Valentine’s Day event is ready to let trainers enjoy in its annual event celebrating the holiday of love. This year Pokemon Go trainers will have a few days to encounter and catch plenty of red and pink-colored Pokemon as well as have a Pokemon debut in the mobile game. Flabebe, the Fairy-type Pokemon of the Kalos region, will make its Pokemon Go debut with this year’s Valentine’s Day event along with its two evolutions.

Fans who remember the games that Flabebe debuted in, Pokemon X and Y, will know that the Fairy-type and its evolutions come in different forms, but we’ll get into how trainers can get them in our handy guide that includes when the event begins, and everything else Pokemon Go players need to know.

Pokemon Go Valentine’s Day 2022 Start Time 

The 2022 Valentine’s Day event will begin Thursday, February 10 at 10 a.m local time and ends Monday, February 14 at 8 p.m. local time.

How to Catch and Evolve Flabebe in Pokemon Go 

Trainers will find Flabebe in the wild in Pokemon Go starting with the 2022 Valentine’s Day event. 

There are three different forms for this tiny Fairy-type Pokemon based on the colored flower it’s holding.

Red Flower, Blue Flower, White Flower, Orange Flower and Yellow Flower Flabebe will all be available in the wild, but which one trainers can find depends on the region they live in.

  • Blue Flower Flabebe will appear in the Asia-Pacific region
  • Yellow Flower Flabebe will appear in the Americas
  • Red Flower Flabebe will appear in Europe, the Middle East and Africa

Orange and White Flower Flabebe will be rare encounters in the wild, but both will be available for all trainers regardless of region.

To evolve Flabebe, trainers need 25 candy to get a Floette. Floette needs 100 candy after earning 20 hearts with it as your buddy. Both evolutions will share the same color as the Flabebe that you catch and evolve.
