Niantic has plenty planned for the Pokemon Go December Community Day, which will be bringing back some notable rewards.
The development team has confirmed that the Pokemon Go Community Day weekend start time has been set for 6am local time (GMT, PDT, EDT, CET) on Saturday, December 12.
This will be the time from when you can begin evolving Pokemon and find more Pocket Monster in the wild.
This will include the following Pocket Monsters: Charmander, Weedle, Abra, Gastly, Rhyhorn, Electabuzz, Magmar, Magikarp, Porygon, Seedot, and Piplup.
There’ll be a special one-time-purchase December Community Day Box available for 1,280 PokéCoins featuring 30 Ultra Balls, five Lucky Eggs, one Elite Fast TM, and one Elite Charged TM.
And event-exclusive Timed Research will also be available, which will earn an Elite Charged ™, among other rewards.
For US$1 (or the equivalent pricing tier in your local currency), you’ll be able to access the December Community Day–exclusive Special Research story.
A message from Niantic adds: “Throughout the event, Pokémon featured in Community Day events throughout 2019 and 2020 will be appearing more frequently in the wild and in raids, so this event will be a great time for you to catch Pokémon featured in any Community Day events you may have missed!
“For a limited time each day, you’ll be more likely to encounter certain Shiny Pokémon, you’ll benefit from bonuses, and different Pokémon will be appearing more frequently in Mega Raids.”
With this being a two-day event, gamers can expect several phases to unlock during the December Community Day.
Between 11am and 5pm on both days, Niantic will unlock a second wave of Pokemon Go rewards to enjoy.
On Saturday, this will include the following:
Pokémon appearing even more frequently in the wild and more likely to be Shiny: Weedle, Abra, Gastly, Rhyhorn, Seedot, and Piplup.
Mega Raids: Mega Gengar raids will be happening more frequently.
On Sunday, there will be the following Pokemon Go rewards:
Pokémon appearing even more frequently in the wild and more likely to be Shiny: Charmander, Electabuzz, Magmar, Magikarp, and Porygon.
Mega Raids: Mega Charizard X raids will be happening more frequently.
And while not officially part of Pokemon Go’s December Community Day, there will also be some additional raids to enjoy.
During different weekends this month, Regirock, Registeel, and Regice will be back in raids, with Regirock up first on December 12.
