Pokemon Go's Next Community Day Event And Featured Pokemon Announced
Here's what you can expect from April's Community Day.
The third Pokemon Go Community Day has come and gone, but players already have an idea of what to expect from next month's event. Developer Niantic has announced the first details for the next Pokemon Go Community Day, including what bonuses and special Pokemon players will be able to earn this time.
The event takes place on Sunday, April 15, and as usual, it will be held during a three-hour window of time. Typically, Community Days run at different times depending on your region, but so far, Niantic has only revealed the time frame for North America. Like this month's event, the next Community Day kicks off in the region at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET and concludes at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET.
During April's Community Day, any Lure Modules that are activated will last for three hours. In addition to that, Eggs will hatch at a quarter of the distance they typically require, allowing you to hatch Pokemon much more quickly for the duration of the event.
The featured Pokemon during April's Community Day will be the Electric-type sheep Mareep. Niantic hasn't revealed what exclusive move it will be able to learn during the event just yet, but if the previous two Community Days are any indication, there's a good chance players will need to evolve Mareep into its final form, Ampharos, before the Community Day ends in order to learn the special move.
Before the next Community Day rolls around, players still have a chance to participate in Pokemon Go's Easter-themed Eggstravaganza event. From now until April 2, Pokemon that typically hatch from 5 km or 10 km Eggs, like Wynaut or Ralts, can be found in 2 km Eggs. April 2 also marks the day the Legendary Pokemon Lugia will leave Raid Battles. The Diving Pokemon returned to the game earlier this month with the "newly improved" Sky Attack move, and this time it's easier to capture if players manage to defeat it.
