I was walking about and I loaded up Pokemon Go to check if there were any Pokestops in my area. There were two, but one looked different than normal. When I clicked on the Pokestop, there were floating hearts around it.

Are there anything special significance to these hearts?

The hearts floating around a Pokéstop signify that someone has deployed a lure module there. Therefore more Pokémon will be attracted there until the lure wears off.

Heart particles signify a regular Lure Model being used.

There are also glacial, magnetic, and mossy lures which attract water/ice, electric/steel/rock, and bug/grass/poison Pokémon respectively. They can also be used to evolve certain Pokémon into their type specific evolutions. See here for more details.

    Not really important, but I believe they are flower petals and not hearts. :)

  • @gitsitgo let's compromise and call them pink thing-a-ma-bobbers

  • The different lures will display differently when looking at the map
