Bonuses

Extra features included for Community Day are:

  • Incense activated during Community Day will last for three hours.

The benefits to the Community Day event will give Pokemon GO players the chance to evolve their Swablu to Altara; players need 400 Swablu Candy for the evolution. This gives players the opportunity to evolve Altara to its mega evelotuion after the Mega Raid conclusion. The other benefit to the event is having a higher chance of coming across a shiny version of Swablu, so players manage your pokemon storage for this eventful day.
