New Pokemon Go Fire and Ice Event Details
Well ahead of Niantic's planned reveal for the upcoming Fire and Ice special event, Team Eevolution has revealed what looks to be an inside communication regarding the event. Here's the letter they've provided, straight from the source:
With summer quickly approaching in the Northern Hemisphere and winter approaching in the Southern Hemisphere, we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the upcoming solstices than with a Fire-type and Ice-type Pokémon GO event.
From 1:00 P.M. PDT on June 13 to 1:00 P.M. PDT on June 20, 2017, Trainers around the world will discover more Charmander, Cyndaquil, Growlithe, Houndour, Ponyta, Swinub, Vulpix, and their Evolutions. You’ll also want to keep an eye out for Sneasel, Magmar, Cloyster, and other Fire types and Ice types!
It’s time to perfect your Poké Ball throws, Trainers! Throughout the event, you’ll receive huge XP bonuses for successfully catching Pokémon with Nice, Great, and Excellent Throws, as well as Curveballs and First Throws. Additionally, as you walk around your neighborhoods or discover new sights, you’ll earn even more XP for hatching Eggs. To help you take advantage of these awesome XP bonuses, Lucky Eggs will be 50% off in the in-game shop.

Altogether, the new event seems to be around the standard fare that Pokemon Go players have come to expect after the recent Rock-type and Grass-type special events. There is one odd change, though: even though nearly all actions will come along with extra XP bonuses, judging from the wording of the letter, evolutions will not gather bonus XP. Oh well.
