Pokémon Go to celebrate April Fools' Day with trickster Pokémon

Today, Niantic announced a Pokémon Tricky event coming for April Fool’s Day. This event will run from April 1, 2020 at 8 a.m. local time until April 7 at 10 p.m. During this event, players will have the chance to meet Pokémon known to be pranksters and masters of disguise in nature, eggs and field research. The Trap Pokémon, Stunfisk, will also make its debut, appearing in the wild, in field research and, for the duration of the event, in 5 km eggs. Ditto will also be much more common in the wild, so be sure to catch any Pokemon that can potentially be Ditto. There will also be additional cash that Ditto can transform starting with this event.
