April 2023 Community Day: Togetic
Saturday, April 15, 2023, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time
We are thrilled to announce that Togetic, the Happiness Pokemon, will take the spotlight during the upcoming April Community Day event in Pokemon GO!
Togetic will be making more frequent appearances in the wild during the event. This is the perfect opportunity to catch this charming Pokemon!
If you evolve Togetic during the event or within five hours afterward, you will obtain a Togekiss that knows the Charged Attack called Aura Sphere. This powerful Fighting-type move was previously unavailable to Togekiss in Pokemon GO.
Trainer Battles: 100 Power
Gyms and Raids: 90 Power
Togekiss is considered one of the most powerful Fairy-type Pokemon in Pokemon GO. It is a valuable addition to your team whether you enjoy competing in the GO Battle League or participating in raids. Take advantage of this event to catch as many Togetic as possible and gather Togepi Candy, which can be used to power up your Togekiss.
During the April Community Day event, Trainers can enjoy the following bonuses:
- 2Ã— Candy for catching Pokemon
- 1/4 Hatch Distance when Eggs are placed in Incubators
- 2Ã— chance for Trainers level 31 and up to receive Candy XL from catching Pokemon
- Lure Modules activated during the event will last for three hours
- Incense (excluding Daily Adventure Incense) activated during the event will last for three hours
- Take a few snapshots during Community Day for a surprise!
- One additional Special Trade can be made for a maximum of two for the day
Additionally, Togepi has a chance of hatching from 2 km Eggs obtained during the April Community Day event. Togepi hatched during this time will have the same chance of appearing as a Shiny Pokemon as the Togetic encountered in the three-hour event period.
Community Day Special Research Story – Spreading Cheer
For just US$1.00, you can access the exclusive Community Day Special Research story called “Spreading Cheer.” Stay tuned for when tickets for this special research become available. As a Trainer, you can also purchase and gift tickets to your friends with whom you have reached a Friendship level of Great Friends or higher. Simply tap the “Gift” button instead of the “Buy” button to share the gift of research!
Please note that purchased tickets are nonrefundable, and the Special Research will not include an in-game medal.
Bonus Raid Battles after Community Day
After the three-hour Community Day event, there will be additional opportunities to participate in unique four-star Raid Battles featuring Togetic. If you successfully complete a four-star Raid Battle against Togetic, more Togetic will appear around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes. Perhaps you might even encounter a Shiny Togetic if luck is on your side! Please note that Remote Raid Passes cannot be used to join these Raid Battles, but you can join them using Raid Passes and Premium Battle Passes.
During April Community Day, Trainers can take on Timed Research tasks focused on Togetic. By completing tasks related to catching Pokemon, you can earn up to 5 Sinnoh Stones as rewards!
In celebration of the April Community Day event, themed Field Research will be available. Catch Togetic during this time to earn exciting rewards such as Stardust, Ultra Balls, and more!
You won’t want to miss out on the event-themed stickers! Spin PokÃ©Stops, open Gifts, or purchase stickers from the in-game shop to collect these special stickers.
As always, please remain aware of your surroundings and follow guidelines from local health authorities while playing Pokemon GO. Keep an eye on our social media channels, enable push notifications, and subscribe to our emails to stay updated on upcoming events and changes.
Have a fantastic April Community Day, Trainers!
