Here's everything you need to know about Pokemon GO's eggstravaganza update for iPhone and Android

Easter is here, and that can only mean one thing. Pokemon GO has been updated! Actually it probably means a lot more than that, but that's the thing I'm focusing on because I don't know how much content I'd be able to get out of eggs and zombie Jesus.

So instead I'm going to write about the Pokemon GO eggstravaganza. So I guess I am writing about eggs. Look, it's been a long day and I don't know where my wallet is so let's just try and get this over and done with then we can all go have a nice long weekend.

What is it?

The eggstravaganza is the latest update to Pokemon GO. It's come out just in time for the Easter break, and it's brought with it some new tweaks that are likely to make you smile while you stuff chocolate facsimiles of chicken periods into your face.

What tweaks?

Well, there's now a wider range of Pokemon in the 2km eggs. So that's a pretty good reason to put some shoes on and go for a wander. Plus every egg that you hatch is going to give you more candy. 'Tis the season, after all.

The Pokemon that pop out are going to level up faster as well, thanks to the fact they get double XP. Basically Pokemon GO really wants you to start wandering around, collecting more Pokemon, and having a lovely old time in the sunshine.

Lucky Eggs are also on sale in the store. They're 50% off, which is a pretty good deal, and using one of those will get you quadruple XP. Which sounds ridiculous if you ask me. I mean it mainly sounds like nonsense, but there you go.

When is it out?

It's out right now. And you can grab the update from the Google Play Store or App Store for nothing at all. If you had plans for the weekend, maybe cancel them and just go on a really long Poke-ramble instead. You'll probably have more fun.
