Pokémon GO Equinox Event: What are Super Incubators?
Super Incubators are the big new item that Niantic will be debuting in the Equinox. These incubators will hatch eggs 1.5x faster than their normal counterparts, and can only be purchased through the in-game store. There’s no word on pricing just yet, but those with plenty of eggs in their inventory will appreciate the fast pass to hatching their Pokémon quicker.
Pokémon GO Equinox Event: Double Stardust
Niantic has been very thrifty with its Stardust thus far, with it remaining the game’s most valuable resource while still being difficult to obtain. Finally, the Pokémon GO Equinox event will see players being rewarded with double Stardust, which you’ll receive after catching or hatching your Pokémon.
