From now until February 17th - so not too long - you'll be able to participate in this event that celebrates the game's dog-like Pokemon.

For those lucky enough to be in Taiwan to ring in the Lunar New Year, Niantic has announced that the famous Chiayi Lantern festival will be home to a Safari Zone event.

To celebrate the start of the Year of the Dog, Pokemon Go players will earn triple the normal amount of Stardust when they capture Poochyena, Growlithe, Snubble, Eevee, or Electrike.

Pokemon Go is hosting a special lunar new year event to mark the beginning of the "Year of the Dog".

Poochyena is also the latest Pokemon to get a shiny variant, along with Mightyena, which evolves from a Poochyena. They'll be making additional appearances so it's easier to catch them, so you shouldn't have any problem doing so.

Unrelated to the Lunar New Year festivities, purchasable Team Rocket outfits have also just been added to the game. That means they should continue to be available beyond the end date noted above.

The costumes however will set you back 950 coins - so spend wisely.

To note, Pokemon Go, the augmented reality game that became a global phenomenon in 2016, returned to the top of the App Store charts recently, because of the newly added features. The first event saw only gen 3 Pokemon spawning and hatching, whereas the second event was in honor of Valentine's Day, which spawned Luvdisc that provided extra stardust.
