The Easter Eggscapade event was an Event that lasted for two weeks in 2023, starting on April 8th and ending April 21st. During the event, users completed a list of tasks relating to a storyline featuring a Togepi and a Vullaby.
It's Easter and Professor Holly is preparing to host an egg painting event. Shazi and Sei, who are wonderful artists, volunteered to help. Prof. Holly asks the user to give her a hand carrying the paints. Outside, Sei is asking Shazi if she got all of the paintbrushes. Shazi notices the user and Prof. Holly walking up with the paint. They ask if Prof. Holly got all the pretty colours, even the cyan. The user helps them set up the painting booth and play the waiting game. Shazi doesn't like that game and would rather play Hungry Hungry Hippopopap instead.
A Deino comes to the booth wanting to paint some eggs. There is suddenly a crashing sound behind the user and a Togepi can be seen running off with the paint. Sei asks the user to chase after the Togepi since the booth will be chaos without both of them. After stating this Deino is seen eating the paintbrushes and Shazi is yelling that "Paintbrushes aren't tasty!"
Before the user knows it they are on the edge of town and they run into Novan-chan. She asks the user, "Where chu off to 'n such a hurry?" After being filled in about what has happened Novan decides to help get the paint back. Togepi comes out from a bush and flees before the user and Novan has a chance to react. The user finally spots Togepi and it is with a Vullaby. Novan asks why they tried to sabotage the event. Togepi and Vullaby explained that Togepi wanted to help Vullaby and only "borrowed" the paints. Novan states that they could have just come to the booth.
Upon their return Sei excalims that Shazi had to go deal with Deino again. Novan already seemed to know that Deino ate the paintbrushes. She then states that they found the runaway paints and a "coupl'a cuties" who wanted their shells painted. Vullaby doesn't want bright colours though. Sei excitedly agrees to help. Both Togepi and Vullaby are happy with how Sei painted their shells. Sei scolds them about asking first and that no one was going to say no since their booth was free. The two Pokémon accept the gentle scolding. Sei thanks the user for their help and the pair of Pokémon want to join the user's farm.
- Note: An EggSweeper Guide has been created in the Guides Forum to help users learn how to play.
EggSweeper, is a Pokémon-themed version of the classic game called Minesweeper. Users are presented with a 16 by 16 grid with 40 Exeggcute and 10 Easter Eggs that are hidden among the tiles. They must click on one of the tiles within the grid, which reveals the tile's contents. The game ends if an Exeggcute is revealed or all 10 of the Eggs are found. In order to win, the user must find all of the hidden Eggs without revealing any Exeggcute.
If a blank tile is revealed, it will immediately open all of tiles in the surrounding area until there is a "wall" of tiles that have a number on them. The numbers on the tiles represent how many Exeggcute are directly next to the tile. This includes diagonal tiles. If no Exeggcute are around the tile, more tiles will be revealed.
If a tile is suspected to have an Exeggcute under it, then PC users can right-click while Mobile users can long press on the tile to mark a flag. Alternatively, the mode located at the top of the game may be switched from "Normal" to "Flag", which allows free marking and unmarking of flags without any risk of opening a tile.
For every egg the user finds, they will have to wait one minute before playing again with a maximum wait time of 10 minutes. E.G. If 8 eggs were found, the user would have to wait 8 minutes until they can try again. If they did not find any Eggs, they may play again immediately.
If the user loses, the game will reveal to the locations of all the Exeggcute, but not the eggs. Any Exeggcute marked correctly with a flag will be highlighted green. Wrong flags are marked with red, along with the Exeggcute the user hit.
- If users have any tickets left over from the 2017 Easter event, they will also be usable.
- The first hatch of the day always grants a ticket, and subsequent hatches can give one.
- Users had to play through the storyline and unlock the EggSweeper game before they could access the event shop.
