To end the year on a high note, Pokémon Go’s final community event for the year in December will be a weekend long event that will increase the spawn rate of all the Pokémon from past community days. That means we’ll be seeing more Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Pikachu, Eevee, Dratini, Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Mareep, Larvitar and Beldum in the wild!
The weekend will take place from Nov. 30 at 4 p.m. ET to Dec. 3 at 2 a.m. ET, giving you plenty of time to get out there and catch any Pokémon you need. Throughout the weekend, any of these special Pokémon will also get their special community day moves, which are as follows:
- Bulbasaur, Chikorita: Frenzy Plant
- Charmander, Cyndaquil: Blast Burn
- Squirtle: Hydro Cannon
- Pikachu: Surf
- Eevee: Last Resort
- Dratini: Draco Meteor
- Mareep: Dragon Pulse
- Larvitar: Smack Down
- Beldum: Meteor Mash
This means that when you evolve the Pokémon to their final forms, their charge attack will be this special move. This should work for Pokémon you’ve had before the event as well, so hold on to any Metangs and Dragonairs you have. Pikachu, however, will come with Surf learned as its charge attack. No evolution is necessary for the electric mouse Pokémon!
There will also be a special three-hour period on Dec. 1 from 2-5 p.m. ET for additional bonuses that usually come with community days. This includes double XP and stardust from catches and double incubator effectiveness, which means it’ll take half the time to hatch eggs than it normally does.
There’s no word on if the field research tasks from these days will return as well, so the return of the beloved Squirtle with sunglasses is unknown at the time. If you missed out on any of those days and couldn’t nab yourself a special Metagross or Charizard, this is your chance to catch up in one weekend.
