April 2023 Community Day: Togetic
Mark your calendars and get ready for an exciting event in Pokemon GO! Niantic, the developer of the popular mobile game, has just announced the upcoming April 2023 Community Day, featuring the adorable Togetic, known as the Happiness Pokemon. This article will provide you with all the details you need to know about this special event.
When and Where
The April 2023 Community Day will take place on Saturday, April 15, 2023, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time. During this three-hour window, trainers all around the world will have the opportunity to encounter Togetic and enjoy a variety of exclusive bonuses and features.
Togetic in the Wild
One of the highlights of the Community Day event is the increased appearance of Togetic in the wild. The cute Fairy/Flying-type Pokemon will be more prevalent during this special occasion, giving trainers a greater chance to catch one and add it to their collection.
Featured Attack: Aura Sphere
If you manage to evolve your Togetic during the event or within five hours afterward, you will have the chance to obtain a powerful Togekiss that knows the Charged Attack Aura Sphere. With a Trainer Battle power of 100 and a Gym/Raid power of 90, Togekiss will become an even more formidable addition to your team.
Community Day Special Research Story â€“ Spreading Cheer
For the price of US$1.00 or its equivalent in your local currency, trainers will have access to a special Community Day-exclusive Special Research story called “Spreading Cheer.” Stay tuned for the exact release time of the Special Research tickets. Additionally, if you have achieved a Friendship level of Great Friends or higher with any of your in-game friends, you can now purchase and gift tickets to them as well.
Note: The Special Research will not grant you an in-game medal, so keep that in mind if you’re pursuing those coveted achievements.
- 2Ã— Candy for catching Pokemon: During the Community Day event, trainers will earn double the amount of Candy when catching Pokemon. This is a great opportunity to stock up on Candy for evolving your Togetic or powering up other Pokemon.
- 1/4 Hatch Distance: Any Eggs placed in Incubators during the event period will require only one-fourth of the usual distance to hatch. This means you can hatch more Eggs and potentially discover some rare Pokemon.
- 2Ã— Chance for Candy XL: Trainers who are at least level 31 will have double the chance to receive Candy XL when catching Pokemon during the event. Candy XL is essential for leveling up Pokemon beyond level 40, so make the most of this increased drop rate.
- Extended Duration for Lure Modules: Lure Modules activated during the Community Day event will last for three hours instead of the usual 30 minutes. These modules attract Pokemon to PokÃ©Stops, providing trainers with ample opportunities to encounter a variety of species.
- Extended Duration for Incense: Incense, excluding Daily Adventure Incense, will also last for three hours during the event. Activate your Incense to attract Pokemon wherever you go and increase your chances of encountering rare and elusive species.
- Snapshot Surprise: Don’t forget to take a few snapshots during Community Day. You might just be in for a delightful surprise!
- Special Trades: Trainers can make one additional Special Trade during the event, with a maximum of two for the entire day. This is a fantastic opportunity to exchange Pokemon with your friends and possibly obtain a rare or shiny Pokemon in return.
- Shiny Chance for Togepi: Throughout the Community Day hours, Togepi has a chance to hatch from 2 km Eggs. Not only that, but these Togepi have the same probability of being shiny as the wild Togetic that appears during the event. Keep your eyes peeled for these valuable shiny Pokemon!
Bonus Raid Battles after Community Day
As a bonus after the initial three-hour event, trainers will have the opportunity to participate in unique four-star Raid Battles. By claiming victory in one of these battles, you can cause more Togetic to appear around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes!
These four-star Raid Battles will exclusively feature Togetic. To join these raids, you’ll need Raid Passes or Premium Battle Passes. Please note that Remote Raid Passes cannot be used to participate in these special Raid Battles.
If you successfully complete a four-star Raid Battle against Togetic, you’ll be rewarded with even more Togetic appearing around the hosting Gym. There is also a chance to encounter a shiny Togetic during this period, so keep your hopes up and your Raid Passes ready!
Timed Research and Field Research
During the event, trainers can engage in Timed Research and Field Research tasks related to Togetic. By completing these tasks and catching Pokemon, you can earn up to five Sinnoh Stones, which are valuable items used for evolving certain species from the Sinnoh region.
Don’t miss out on the April Community Day-themed Field Research, where you have the chance to earn exciting rewards such as Stardust, Ultra Balls, and more by catching Togetic. These tasks provide an additional layer of gameplay and give you further incentive to celebrate the event.
As part of the event, Pokemon GO trainers will have the opportunity to collect event-themed stickers. You can obtain these stickers by spinning PokÃ©Stops, opening Gifts from friends, and purchasing them directly from the in-game shop. These stickers can be used to personalize your in-game messages and add a touch of style to your interactions.
