Exciting Bonuses During the Event
As if the increased Togetic encounters and Special Research weren’t enough, Niantic is also providing some incredible bonuses during the April Community Day event. Take a look at what you can expect:
- 2Ã— Candy for catching Pokemon: Every Pokemon you catch during the event will reward you with twice the amount of Candy you would normally receive.
- 1/4 Hatch Distance: When you place Eggs in Incubators during the event, they will only require a quarter of the usual distance to hatch. Get ready to hatch those Eggs much faster!
- 2Ã— chance for Candy XL: Trainers at level 31 and above have an increased chance of receiving Candy XL when catching Pokemon. This is a valuable resource for powering up your Pokemon.
- Extended duration for Lure Modules and Incense: Any Lure Modules activated during the event will last for an impressive three hours, providing an extended opportunity to attract Pokemon. Similarly, Incense (excluding Daily Adventure Incense) activated during the event will also last for a generous three hours.
- Surprises with snapshots: Take a few snapshots during the Community Day event, and you may be in for a delightful surprise!
- Additional Special Trades: Trainers can make one additional Special Trade during the event, with a maximum of two trades for the day. Make the most of this opportunity to exchange Pokemon with your friends.
- Togepi hatching from 2 km Eggs: There is a chance for Togepi to hatch from 2 km Eggs obtained during the April Community Day hours. Not only that, but Togepi hatched during this time will have the same probability as Togetic to appear as a Shiny Pokemon.
Bonus Raid Battles After Community Day
Following the conclusion of the three-hour Community Day event, Trainers will have the opportunity to take on unique four-star Raid Battles. Participating in these raids and achieving victory will cause even more Togetic to appear around the Gym that hosted the raid for a thrilling period of 30 minutes. Keep your eyes peeled for these special Raid Battles and don’t miss the chance to encounter powerful Pokemon!
To join the four-star Raid Battles during this extended period, you can use Raid Passes and Premium Battle Passes. However, please remember that Remote Raid Passes cannot be used for these specific Raid Battles.
Timed Research and Field Research
During the April Community Day event, Trainers can engage in Timed Research tasks specifically focused on Togetic. Complete these tasks between 2:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. to earn up to 5 Sinnoh Stones, a valuable item for evolving certain Pokemon.
Additionally, Pokemon GO will feature Field Research that aligns with the theme of the Community Day. By catching Togetic, you can earn various rewards such as Stardust, Ultra Balls, and more.
