The Pokemon GO Easter Event begins tomorrow and will last one full week with a set of benefits for all users in the game. Information on this event will likely be announced by Niantic either later today or midday tomorrow when Easter Weekend starts - if you're getting a very early start on Easter Weekend, that is to say.
