The carnival is almost here. Niantic

February is the month of love and it's no surprise that Pokémon GO is celebrating just that. Get ready for the Carnival of Love event where trainers get the chance to change their Natural Form Furfrou to Heart Trim Furfrou. The event starts February 13 and runs until February 15.

Now some of you are probably wondering how to change Furfrou's Trim. The first thing you'll need to do during the event is look for Furfrou in your Pokémon Storage. Once that's done, follow these steps:

  • Tap Furfrou to check its summary.
  • Tap the Change Form button.
  • This should bring up a menu which lists the available trims.
  • Select the preferred trim.

By the way, changing trims won't be free. It's going to cost 25 Furfrou Candy and 10,000 Stardust.

With the out of the way, there are two bonuses available during the event and these are:
