Pokemon Go Community Day 2018 is going to be crazy


Big weekend.

Pokemon Go Community Day 2018 has been detailed by developer Niantic.

“We want to thank you for making this year’s Community Days so special. All over the world, in all kinds of weather, Trainers gathered to catch an array of Pokémon species and hoped for a glimpse of a Shiny Pokémon,” Niantic said in a new post. “We appreciate your dedication and enthusiasm!”

Between 8.00am AEDT, 1 December and 6.00pm AEDT, 3 December (your timezone here), a ton of Pokemon and special moves will be up for grabs, as follows:

  • Featured Pokémon: Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Pikachu, Eevee, Dratini, Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Mareep, Larvitar, and Beldum will appear more frequently in the wild.
  • Special moves previously featured during Community Day events in 2018 will be available again during the weekend!

Moreover, special bonuses will be available between 2.00pm – 5.00pm AEDT on 2 December. They include:

  • Double Catch XP
  • Double Catch Stardust
  • Double Incubator effectiveness

Good time to jump back into the game if you’ve lapsed, eh?

Pokémon Go is available now on iOS and Android devices. It features integration with Pokémon Let’s Go on Nintendo Switch.
