Pokémon Go Abra Community Day Will Go Ahead Next Week, Stay at Home Adjustments Made

Due to the Coronavirus, the Abra Community Day in Pokémon Go was delayed last month.  We assumed that the Community Day would come back, but with no timescale on this pandemic, its return would be anyone’s guess.

So this week, Niantic have announced that the Abra Community Day will take place this month on April 25th and to make allowances for the pandemic, stay at home adjustments have been made, so that we can at least enjoy the event from the comfort of our own homes.

Firstly, rather than lasting the usual three hours, this Abra Community Day will last six hours, from 11:00am to 5:00pm local time.  You will also have an additional two hours after the event has finished to evolve your Abra’s (until 7pm), so that you can acquire its exclusive Community Day attack, which will be a Fighting-type Fast Attack Counter.

Rather than Lure Models lasting three hours at PokéStops, instead, Incense will last three hours during the event to improve your chances of catching some shinnies at home.  There will also be a 3x Catch Stardust bonus and your Buddy will venture to nearby PokéStops for you, to gather some goodies.

You’ll also be able to purchase a Community Day exclusive Special Research Story for $1 (or your regions equivalent currency) called Investigating Illusions.  Once this Special Research is complete, you will be rewarded with 13,000 Stardust, a Poffin, a Rocket Radar as well as other rewards.  Additionally, you’ll be able to make a one-time purchase for an April Community Day Bundle via the shop for 1,280 PokéCoins (the usual cost would be 1,400 PokéCoins) which includes an Elite Charged TM, 30 Ultra Balls, three Super Incubators and three Incense.

As Pokémon Go is all about being social, it’s something that is not really possible in today’s current climate, so Niantic are also encouraging players to use the hashtag #PokemonGOCommunityDay, so that we can share our experiences with our fellow Trainers.

I must say, that since this Coronavirus pandemic has swept our world, Niantic have done a fantastic job in making Pokémon Go as safely accessible as possible, so thank you.  Will you be taking part in the Abra Community Day?  Share your Trainer code across our social media channels.
