Stufful Debuts in Pokémon GO During April’s Community Day event
Beware the fierce but adorable Stufful as it flails its way into the spotlight.
Get ready to say “Alola” to Stufful as it makes its Pokémon GO debut during April’s Community Day event! The endearing Normal- and Fighting-type Pokémon will appear on Saturday, April 23, 2022, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time. Known as the Flailing Pokémon, Stufful looks cute, but it’s powerful enough to split trees in half! Evolve Stufful during the event or up to two hours afterward to get a Bewear that knows the Fighting-type Charged Attack Drain Punch. This will be the first time Drain Punch is available in Pokémon GO.
Additionally, there will be several special bonuses active during the event. Check back later for additional details about Pokémon GO’s April Community Day event.
Enjoy stuffing your Pokémon storage with Stufful, Trainers!
April 2022 Community Day: Stufful
April Community Day
Saturday, April 23, 2022, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time
We’re excited to announce that Stufful, the Flailing Pokémon, will make its Pokémon GO debut during April’s Community Day event! Stufful will appear in the wild, and if you’re lucky, you might encounter a Shiny one!
Community Day Adjustments
We also wanted to take a moment to discuss some changes to the Community Day format we’ll be testing. In 2020, we doubled the length of our Community Day events, extending them from three hours to six. Since then, however, we’ve found that only five percent of our Trainers tend to participate in the event for more than three hours.
One of the biggest pieces of positive feedback that we received after January’s three-hour Community Day Classic was that players and community leaders noticed how much more of the community was out and about during the event. So, for Stufful Community Day, we’re returning to three-hour format. Our hope is that doing so will create even more opportunities for Trainers to play together and connect outside as they’re exploring.
We know that Trainers have enjoyed all of the extra resources that can be collected during longer events, so we’re adding some new and exciting perks to Stufful Community Day to give you the ability to collect just as many resources during gameplay. Check them out below!
Stufful will appear more frequently in the wild.
Making its Pokémon GO debut, this Charged Attack can provide Bewear with a defensive edge!
- Trainer Battles: 20 power and guaranteed to increase the user’s Defense.
- Gyms and raids: 50 power
Community Day Special Research Story: Strong Stuff
- For US$1.00 (or the equivalent pricing tier in your local currency), you’ll be able to access the Stufful Community Day-exclusive Special Research story, Strong Stuff
- Stay tuned for when tickets for the Strong Stuff Special Research story go live.
Group Play Bonuses
Work together with other trainers to unlock additional bonuses in that location!
- If enough Pokémon are caught by trainers from a single Lure, the 3× XP bonus for catching Pokémon near the Lured PokéStop will be increased to 4× XP for 30 minutes .*
- There’ll be a special one-time-purchase Community Day Box available for 850 PokéCoins, featuring 15 Ultra Balls, 15 Pinap Berries, 1 Elite Fast TM, and 1 Remote Raid Pass.
- A bundle containing 30 Ultra Balls will be available in the shop at no cost. Be sure to pick it up during the event!
You’ll be able to get event-themed stickers by spinning PokéStops, opening Gifts, and purchasing them from the in-game shop.
