Reminder - Pokemon GO's Treecko Community Day goes live today

Treecko trackin'

The Grass-type Treecko will be the star of this weekend's Community Day, and this is one event you won't want to miss out on! This month, Community Day will occur on Saturday, March 23, 2019, from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in your local time zone. Not only will you have the opportunity to catch plenty of Treecko during that three-hour span, but if you evolve Grovyle (the evolved form of Treecko) into Sceptile during or up to one hour after the event, your Sceptile will know the special move Frenzy Plant. This move will be available only to Sceptile evolved during Community Day. Additionally, Incubators will be four times as effective, hatching Eggs placed in them during the event four times faster.

You only get 3 hours to enjoy Community Day in Pokemon GO, so make sure you get in on the fun while you can. Best of luck, Trainers!

Pokemon GO weather-focused Limited Research, featuring Lotad!

Grab your rain boots

Professor Willow is looking to conduct Limited Research on the impact of weather on Pokémon, with a focus on the Water- and Grass-type Pokémon Lotad. Spin Photo Discs at nearby PokéStops to obtain Field Research tasks that lead to encounters with this Water Weed Pokémon. While you’re completing research, keep an eye out for other Pokémon that could be impacted by weather conditions, such as Castform! See more details below:

Date + Time

Mar. 30, 2019, from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. in your local time zone.


Pokémon that appear due to weather conditions will appear more frequently during the event.
Limited Research tasks will be available when you spin Photo Discs at PokéStops.
Completing the Limited Research tasks will award you encounters with Lotad.
If you’re lucky, you may encounter Shiny Lotad and Shiny Castform in its Normal form!

The move Weather Ball for Castform will be permanently added to the game.

Remember, Trainers! As long as you’ve collected the Limited Research during the event window, you can complete it at any time. Don’t forget—you’ll need to venture onward to many PokéStops in order to get new Field Research tasks and encounter as many Lotad as possible!

We’re looking forward to seeing you out in the field! Stay safe and happy exploring!
