The Pokemon GO community event is set to kick off on December 12 (tomorrow!) and lasts all weekend! The event begins on December 12 at 6 AM and will run all the way through Sunday, December 13 at 10 PM local time.
Pokemon featured in 2019 Community Days such as Totodlie, Swinub, Treecko, Torchis, Mudkip, Ralts, Slakoth, Trapinch, Bagon, Turtwig, and Chimchar will also be appearing in raids as well as hatching from eggs for this Pokémon Go Community Event.
If you’re looking to stock up on Stardust, you’re in for a treat as you’ll be receiving double catch Stardust! Niantic is also offering halved Egg Hatch Distance, as well as an extended 3-hour Incense duration! So be sure to get all your bonuses this weekend!
“Different Pokémon will also be appearing in the wild and in Mega Raids on Saturday and Sunday between 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. local time. On Saturday, December 12, Pokémon like Weedle, Abra, Gastly, Rhyhorn, Seedot, and Piplup will be appearing more often in the wild, and Mega Gengar will be appearing in Mega Raids. On Sunday, December 13, Pokémon like Charmander, Electabuzz, Magmar, Magikarp, and Porygon will be appearing more often in the wild, and Mega Charizard X will be appearing in Mega Raids. Each Pokémon featured in the December 2020 Community Day weekend will be able to learn the exclusive attacks from their respective 2019 and 2020 Community Day appearances, so make sure to evolve them before the end of the event! If you’re lucky, you might even encounter a Shiny Pokémon!”
Timed Research will also be available for free throughout the event, along with paid exclusive Special Research for $1 USD. You can also purchase a Community Day bundle, though it is unknown how much this will cost you.
This is a really cool move by Niantic and will allow players that may not have a single day to participate in the annual Pokemon GO Community Day Event to participate throughout the entire weekend! Catch me outside catching myself a shiny Magikarp until the event ends on December 13!
