Seven tips for Stufful Community Day
 

Trainers,

With Stufful Community Day just around the corner, we want to share some tips to help new and returning Trainers enjoy April Community Day to the fullest.

Below are seven tips to help you capture plenty of Stufful, a Pokémon that’s making its Pokémon GO debut during April Community Day

  1. Use Pinap Berries.

Pinap Berries award twice the Candy when you catch a Pokémon and are a great way to get lots of Stufful Candy. Silver Pinap Berries increase your chance of catching a Pokémon and award you even more Candy when you do.

With that in mind, now’s the time to start saving up Pinap Berries to use during next weekend’s Community Day. But don’t worry—if you run out or need more, you can earn Pinap Berries by completing Field Research tasks during Community Day!

  1. Maximize your bonuses.

April Community Day will offer tons of exciting bonuses. Let’s take a look at a few.

  • 3× XP for catching Pokémon.
  • 2× Candy for catching Pokémon.
  • Trainers level 40 and above will have double the chance to obtain Stufful Candy XL by catching Stufful.
  • Incense activated during the event will last for three hours.
  • Lure Modules activated during the event will last for three hours.
  • One additional special trade can be made during the event and up to two hours after for a maximum of two for the day.
  • Trades made during the event and up to two hours after the event will require 50% less Stardust.
  • And more!

If you’re looking to maximize these bonuses, use a Lucky Egg at the start of Community Day. Doing so will double the XP you earn from catching Pokémon, combining with the event’s bonus to provide an impressive 6× XP bonus.

Lure Modules and Incense can also give your Community Day a big boost. If you activate them at the beginning of the event, they’ll last a full three hours, covering Community Day from start to finish! And yes, their bonuses also stack with Pinap Berries, netting you even more Candy for catching Pokémon.

  1. Get together with friends and enjoy an additional bonus.

We’re trying something new this month: a bonus for groups of Trainers who play together! With this bonus, Trainers that work together in person with other Trainers will earn additional bonuses. Here’s how it works: if enough Pokémon are caught with help from a single Lure Module, the 3× Catch XP bonus for Trainers near the Lured PokéStop will be increased to a 4× bonus for 30 minutes! This bonus will not stack with the 3× Catch XP bonus and will instead replace it. However, the bonus does stack with Lucky Eggs—so consider using a Lucky Egg to make that 4× Catch XP bonus into a whopping 8× bonus!

  1. Evolve the featured Pokémon and it will know an attack it can’t normally learn!

Catching Pokémon during Community Day is only part of the fun. If you evolve the featured Pokémon during the event (or up to two hours after) that Pokémon will know an attack it can’t normally learn!

When you evolve Stufful during April Community Day, you’ll get a Bewear that knows the Charged Attack Drain Punch. This Charged Attack is new to Pokémon GO and can provide Bewear a defensive edge that’s great for Trainer Battles!

  1. There’s always time for a snapshot!

Don’t forget to take a few snapshots during Community Day! If you take a snapshot during the event, certain Pokémon may jump into frame and you’ll get a chance to catch it. You may even be surprised by a Shiny Pokémon, if you’re lucky.

This only happens during event hours, so don’t forget to make time for some snapshots!

  1. Complete Field Research.

Make sure to complete as many Field Research tasks as you can so you have more opportunities to encounter the Pokémon featured during Community Day! If you’re lucky, you might also encounter a Shiny Pokémon this way!

But remember: you can only get one Field Research task per PokéStop, per day, so exploring is crucial! Different Field Research tasks will have different rewards, including encounters with the featured Pokémon, Candy, Pinap Berries, Ultra Balls, and more!

  1. And don’t forget…

If you plan to catch a lot of Pokémon, try using a Star Piece. Doing so will increase the amount of Stardust you earn by 50% for a limited time.

Think you’ll cover a lot of ground during Community Day? Then don’t forget to use Incubators to hatch some Eggs—Super Incubators decrease the distance needed to hatch an Egg, too!

If Community Day ends and you’re still itching for adventure, try using a Mossy Lure Module, Glacial Lure Module, Magnetic Lure Module, or Rainy Lure Module. These Lure Modules will attract specific Pokémon and may cause certain Pokémon species to evolve.

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!

In addition to Stufful’s Pokémon GO debut, April’s Community Day is stuffed full of special bonuses! Incense and Lure Modules activated during the event will last for three hours, and you’ll earn three times the XP and twice as much Candy for catching Pokémon. Trainers level 40 and above will have double the chance to obtain Stufful Candy XL by catching Stufful. These bonuses will especially come in handy for gathering the 400 Stufful Candy required to evolve Stufful into a Bewear that knows Drain Punch before Community Day ends at 7:00 p.m. Make the most of Pinap Berries to quadruple your usual Candy earnings, and you’ll have enough Stufful Candy to evolve Stufful into Bewear in no time!

Pokémon trades taking place between 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. local time will cost half the usual Stardust, and you’ll be able to make an additional Special Trade during that timeframe. A Community Day–exclusive Special Research story—titled Strong Stuff—will be available through the Pokémon GO in-game shop for US$1.00 (or the equivalent pricing tier in your local currency).

Enjoy stuffing your Pokémon storage full of Stufful, Trainers!

April 2022 Community Day: Stufful

April  2022 Community Day: Stufful
 

April Community Day

Saturday, April 23, 2022, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time

Trainers,

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.
