Pokemon Go 2024 Community Day: Everything You Need to Know

Get Ready for Bounsweet and Other Pokemon!

Pokemon Go enthusiasts, get ready to mark your calendars! The highly anticipated May 2024 Community Day event is just around the corner, and this month’s festivities will center around the delightful grass-type Pokemon, Bounsweet. During the event, Bounsweet will grace the wild with its presence more frequently than usual, offering trainers ample opportunities to catch this charming creature and earn valuable Bounsweet Candy.

Event Schedule and Timing

Set your alarms for Sunday, May 19, when Pokemon Go’s May Community Day kicks off. The main event will run from 2 to 5 PM local time, followed by extended four-star raids available from 5 to 10 PM local time.

Featured Pokemon: Bounsweet

The star attraction of this Community Day is none other than Bounsweet, a grass-type Pokemon hailing from the Alola region. Throughout the event, Bounsweet will be making appearances in the wild at an increased rate, and keen-eyed trainers may even encounter the elusive Shiny Bounsweet, identifiable by its purple stem and yellow base.

Featured Move: High Jump Kick

For trainers looking to power up their Bounsweet, evolving Steenee during the event hours (2 to 10 PM local time) will teach the evolved Tsareena a powerful new attack: High Jump Kick. This risky but potent fighting-type charged move boasts significant power in PvP battles, though it comes with a chance of reducing the user’s defense stat.

In-Game Bonuses

In addition to increased Bounsweet spawns and the introduction of High Jump Kick, trainers can enjoy a plethora of in-game bonuses during May’s Community Day. Catching Pokemon will yield double the usual Candy, with a higher likelihood of receiving Candy XL for players at level 31 and above.

Furthermore, eggs incubated during the event will hatch in a fraction of the usual distance, while Lure Modules, Incense, and trades will all offer enhanced benefits.

Extra Raids and Beyond

Following the main event, special four-star raids featuring Bounsweet’s evolved form, Steenee, will be available from 5 to 10 PM local time. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to challenge these formidable raid bosses!

Beyond Community Day, Pokemon Go players can look forward to additional events and updates, including the Catching Wonders event and a Masterwork Research questline offering enticing rewards, including the coveted Master Ball. Stay tuned for more exciting adventures in the world of Pokemon Go!
