Pokemon Go May 2021 Community Day: Watch Out for Shiny Swablu
Get ready for Mega Altaria!
Trainers, the next Pokemon Go Community Day event will take place on May 15, 2021 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. local time.
During this event, Swablu will appear more frequently than normal in the wild, and you’ll have the chance to find a Shiny one.
Swablu is a Normal- and Flying-type Pokemon from the third generation of the Pokemon universe. In Pokemon Go, you can evolve Swablu into Altaria using 400 Swablu Candy.
Each time you evolve Swablu into Altaria during this event, or during the two hours immediately following it, Altaria will learn the move Moonblast
Plus, when this Community Day event ends (that is, at 5 p.m. local time on May 15), Mega Altaria will begin appearing in Mega Raids.
During this Community Day event, you’ll be able to take Snapshots of Pokemon to earn extra Swablu encounters. Eggs will also hatch after walking 1/4 of the normal required distance if they’re placed into Incubators during this event. Finally, Incense will last for three hours when it’s activated during this event, rather than one hour.
There will be two optional ways to spend real money during Swablu Community Day. First, a Community Day Box will be available to purchase for 1,280 PokeCoins. This box will contain 50 Ultra Balls, five Super Incubators, five Incense, and an Elite Fast TM.
Next, players will have the option to spend $1 on a ticket that will give them access to a Special Research storyline called “Cotton-Winged Bird.” If you’re interested in purchasing one of these tickets, keep in mind that they can’t be purchased with PokeCoins. That is, these tickets can only be purchased with a real money transaction.
