Abra was the featured Pokémon for the latest Pokémon GO Community Day. Originally scheduled to take place on March 15, Abra Community Day happened on April 25 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. local time. Shiny Abra, Shiny Kadabra and Shiny Alakazam also made their Pokémon GO debuts on this day. Read on below for more details:
Abra Community Day rescheduled for Saturday, April 25, 2020
We’ve made some temporary changes to Community Day to make it easier for you to participate from anywhere you play, including at home. We’d like to introduce you to Community Day: Play at Home Edition.
Date + Time
Rescheduled from March, April Community Day will still feature Abra, the Psi Pokémon. The event will take place on Saturday, April 25, 2020, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time—yes, you’ll have an additional three hours of Community Day gameplay to enjoy!
Features Remember our previous Abra Community Day announcement? From that, the following will still be happening.
- Abra will be appearing more frequently in the wild.
- If you’re lucky, you may encounter a Shiny Abra.
- Evolve Abra during the event or up to two hours afterward to obtain an Alakazam that knows an exclusive attack. We’d like to announce here that that exclusive attack will be the Fighting-type Fast Attack Counter!
- For US$1 (or the equivalent pricing tier in your local currency), you’ll be able to unlock a Community Day–exclusive Special Research story—Investigating Illusions! Complete it for 13,000 Stardust, a Poffin, a Rocket Radar, and other rewards. Stay tuned for when tickets go live! The ticket to this Special Research story event is nonrefundable. Subject to applicable law and the exceptions set forth in the Terms of Service.
We’re continuing to prioritize Pokémon GO experiences that can be enjoyed in individual settings. Here are some things we’re temporarily changing for Community Day: Play at Home Edition.
- As mentioned above, Community Day will now run for six hours instead of the regular three.
- The bonus will now be 3× Catch Stardust. This will be the perfect time to collect Stardust and power up your Pokémon for the GO Battle League!
- Instead of Lure Modules, Incense will last for three hours for the duration of the event.
- Buddy Pokémon with a Buddy Level of Great Buddy or higher will bring you helpful items, such as Poké Balls, throughout the event. To take full advantage of this bonus, check out this help center article to learn how to get to Great Buddy with your buddy.
- There’ll be a special one-time purchase April Community Day bundle, featuring an Elite Charged TM, 30 Ultra Balls, three Super Incubators, and three Incense for 1,280 PokéCoins.
- Take a snapshot during Community Day for a photobomb surprise from Abra!
- The special code MDWC4SNGUFXS2SW9 can now be redeemed at https://rewards.nianticlabs.com/pokemongo/ until 8 am UTC on April 26 to 20 Razz Berries and 20 Great Balls for free.
Just because the community is physically apart doesn’t mean we can’t spend Community Day together! Join us on Twitter for 24 hours of Abra-themed coverage, and use the #PokemonGOCommunityDay hashtag to connect with other Trainers while you play!
